With Microsoft OneDrive for Business, you get 5 TB (additional storage space allocated as needed) of free storage in the cloud to store your files and photos, sync across all your devices, and even edit and collaborate on Office documents. You can access the latest version of your files from any device.

Share photos and files through email, by sending a short link in a text message, or by posting them to a social network, your website or blog right from Microsoft OneDrive for Business. There's also a desktop app for OneDrive for Business that creates a folder on your PC or Mac that syncs with your cloud folder and lets you access files on your PC remotely.

Note: Please do not attempt to sync more data from the cloud than is available on your device.
