OneDrive for Business File Sync

Posted May 12th, 2016 at 10:26 am.

OneDrive for Business is an integral part of Office 365, and provides a place in the cloud where you can store, share, and sync your work files. You can update and share your files from any device with OneDrive for Business. You can even work on Office documents with others at the same time.

Note: OneDrive for Business is different from OneDrive, which is intended for personal storage separate from your workplace.

OneDrive for Business Sync Clients and Apps are available for Windows, Mac, and Mobile platforms.  While you can always reach OneDrive from your Web browser, a client will allow your files to be easily accessed on your computers and mobile devices, and allow integration with other programs.  The desktop clients will also provide offline access.  Please note that your Bryn Mawr account is considered a “Work or School” account, rather than a “Personal” one.

You can install the sync client on your College computers and devices, and on personal computers and devices if they are protected by Antivirus and passwords as outlined in the Data Handling Policy. If you receive a new College computer or have your computer imaged, you will already have the correct client.

Windows:  On College machines, obtain the client from Software Center; on personal machines download the client and set it up with your College email address and password.  For complete instructions, see this Getting Started guide.

Mac:  On College machines, obtain the client from Software Center; on personal machines, download the client from the Mac App store.  Use your College email address and password.  For more information, see the OneDrive for Mac FAQ.

Mobile Devices:  See the app store for your mobile device to locate the correct client.
