A conversation about OneDrive

In Episode 58 of the Microsoft 365 Voice, Antonio, Mike, and I discuss how we use OneDrive to create, share, and manage files. Listen in to see if your use of OneDrive mirrors #TeamMike, #TeamSarah, or #TeamAntonio.

Topics covered in this episode:

  • Using OneDrive consumer for personal content
    • Backing up household and family files
    • Syncing photos from mobile phones to OneDrive
    • Using Personal Vault to store passport information, vaccine information, travel ID numbers, etc.
  • Using OneDrive at work
    • Storing & sharing work files with clients or co-workers. We all have different methods for creating and sharing files – Antonio creates files locally when traveling and then uploads to Teams and SharePoint when he’s ready to share. Mike and Sarah create files in OneDrive by default and then upload files to Teams for collaboration.
    • Using the OneDrive Sync Client to save files locally (especially when you’re working across multiple devices)
    • Hydrating files for offline access. (Mike does a great job explaining how file hydration & dehydration works)
    • Syncing local folders to SharePoint and OneDrive for Business
  • Organizational considerations
    • Known Folder Move & automatic backup (backing up pictures, My Documents, etc. to OneDrive)
    • OneDrive silent sign-in (GPO setting that automatically signs users into their OneDrive Sync Client)
    • Disabling the sync to OneDrive consumer accounts (protects companies from having company data synced to consumer OneDrive accounts)
