Controls for security

OneDrive helps protect your files. You can easily recover files from accidental deletes or malicious attacks and administrators can manage security policies to help keep your information safe.

Advanced Sharing outside Your Organization

OneDrive for Business is all regarding sharing, but the latest updates give you larger control of how this is done. While it’s always been possible to share documents straight from OneDrive for Business to external parties, there’s currently even additional flexibility. You can now set expiry dates on a shared link and can add permissions to who that link can be shared with.

External Sharing Governance

It’s great that you will now share more easily with external partners, but IT administrators will value the ability to manage how data is shared more closely. New features mean IT teams will be able to audit external sharing invitations, limit external sharing for specific users, and manage external sharing domains.

Selective Sync

If you’re using a device with a small drive, you won’t have space for all those enormous files stored in your personal OneDrive for Business folder. Avoid filling your local disk up by selecting which files and folders get synced to that specific device.

Use Delve

Delve is Microsoft’s powerful machine-learning tool that tracks relationships between documents and users, across an organization’s Office 365 environment. Delve takes signals from OneDrive for Business too, and surfaces these in the Delve area within Office 365. The more you use Delve, the more precise it becomes.

Save Email Attachments Straight to OneDrive for Business

A major User Experience frustration of Outlook, in the past, was that saving attachments from emails into SharePoint involved too many steps. This is not the case with OneDrive for Business; you’ll simply right click on an email attachment, in the Outlook Web App, and save it straight into your chosen folder.

Find out How Much Storage You Have Left

OneDrive for Business provides business users up to one TB (TB) of space each. That’s about the equivalent of 200 high definition movies. If you’re approaching anyplace near filling that quota, we suggest you go on a document purge!
