How to Sync Files with OneDrive

OneDrive is an app for Windows users that allows you to store files up to 10GB in size. OneDrive functions like any other folder on your PC and will even pop up above your Libraries in File Explorer. Uploading and syncing files is as simple as moving them to another folder.

Step 1: After you have installed the OneDrive app, open your folders. Navigate to the file you would like to upload to OneDrive. Click, hold and drag the file to hover over the OneDrive file, and then let go. You can do the same thing with individual folders, so you don’t need to drag all the files inside the folders separately.

Step 2: Sign in to your OneDrive account to double-check that your files have moved appropriately. Your files should appear when you click the File button.

Step 3: You can also use OneDrive to upload files to the web. To do this, access your OneDrive app and click the Upload button near the top of the screen. A prompt will pop up where you can select your file. To select multiple files, hold the Control button on your keyboard while you select your files.

Recap: All you need to do to sync your files is to drag them to your OneDrive app like it’s a separate folder. You might want to drag your folders over while right-clicking to ensure that your file isn’t permanently moved to OneDrive. If you do want to move the file over, use the left click.
