    Microsoft OneDrive is an effective tool for backing up, syncing, and sharing documents and other files across your computers. But the program is also adept on a mobile device. In February, I covered the process for using OneDrive on an iPhone or iPad; now it’s time to see what it can do on an Android device.

    Using OneDrive on your iPhone or iPad

    By Lance Whitney

    Using the OneDrive app on your Apple devices allows you to cross that great Apple/Microsoft divide.

    Microsoft OneDrive is a helpful tool for backing up and synchronizing your folders and files across your Windows computers. But it can also play a similar role on your mobile devices. With the OneDrive app for iOS/iPadOS, you can access, open, and share your online files. You can download files to your device to view them without being online. You can automatically upload photos and videos taken on your phone or tablet so they’re accessible from OneDrive. And you can even edit your files with the right mobile apps.

    Why your reseller for Microsoft 365 matters

    By Amy Babinchak

    Many suppliers sell Microsoft 365 plans. Not all are created equal.

    Many people and businesses think that Microsoft is the sole source of Microsoft 365 plans. That is not true; you have a choice of suppliers. Microsoft has partners or resellers who also sell the service. What you need to know is that not all of them offer you the same thing, because Microsoft has different types of relationships with partners. To confuse matters even more, purchasing from Microsoft directly has limitations. Understanding your options before purchasing is essential.

    Microsoft OneDrive: The basics

    By Lance Whitney

    Want to be able to back up and synchronize your files with Microsoft OneDrive
    but aren’t sure where to start? Here’s a primer on getting started with OneDrive.

    Microsoft OneDrive is an effective tool for automatically backing up and synchronizing your documents, photos, and other files. By backing up your files to OneDrive in the cloud, you can recover them in case you accidentally delete or lose them. And by synchronizing your files, you ensure that they’re accessible from any computer or device running OneDrive.

    OneDrive is automatically included and accessible in Windows 10 and Windows 8.1. Those of you still running Windows 7 can manually download and install it. Beyond Windows, OneDrive is available for macOS, iOS, iPadOS, and Android, so you can access it from any computer or mobile device. I use OneDrive as my primary backup and synchronization service and find it very convenient and helpful.

    But OneDrive can be tricky to set up and configure initially, especially if you’re not familiar with its various settings and options. Let’s look at the basics of OneDrive to see how you can get started and use it most effectively.
