Storing your files in the cloud with OneDrive

OneDrive is the Microsoft cloud service that connects you to all your files. It lets you store and protect your files, share them with others, and get to them from anywhere on all your devices. Your Hull York Medical School Office 365 account gives you 1TB of space in the Microsoft cloud.


All files that you store in OneDrive are private unless you decide to share them. You can share files and folders with colleagues so you can collaborate on projects. If you’re signed-in to Office 365, you can even share with partners outside of Hull York Medical School.

When you send email from Outlook Web App, you can attach a OneDrive file as a link, instead of sending an attachment. When you Attach a file as a link, you automatically give the people you send the message to permission to edit the file. Plus, you save space in everyone’s mailbox and encourage people to edit the same copy in OneDrive

To get to OneDrive for Business:

  1. Sign in to Office 365 or your SharePoint site with your Hull York Medical School account.
  2. At the top of the page, select the app launcher The app launcher icon in Office 365 , and then select OneDrive.The Office 365 app launcher with the OneDrive app highlighted
