OneDrive for Business provides 5 TB of free storage space for alumni to store and share files/folders online. With all your files/folders in the cloud, it is easy to access from anywhere outside of the university network on any device (PC, tablet, phone) with a web browser or an app (Android, iOS, Windows or Mac). Users can configure files/folders to be shared with others both internal and external to the University. Furthermore, OneDrive automatically creates a new version of the stored file every time it is edited and keeps previous versions of the same file as hidden backups. Users can therefore restore a previous version as they see fit.
