One Drive for Business

We are excited to announce that OneDrive for Business is now available to all Faculty and Staff. 
With 1 Terabyte of space in the cloud you now have a new way to store, share, and access your files from anywhere.

What is OneDrive for Business?

Part of Trent’s Office 365 environment, OneDrive for Business is cloud storage space provided by Microsoft that allows for easy sharing and collaborating between co-workers, as well as syncing your files between devices. This is a separate product from Microsoft’s consumer offered OneDrive.

How do I access OneDrive for Business?

Open your Trent email online through the ‘Email’ link in MyTrent (http://www.trentu.ca/mytrent).
Click the blue settings button at the top left of your screen next to ‘Office 365’.

Click on the OneDrive button.
From here you can drag and drop files, sync to your computer (Dropbox style) and share files and folders with colleagues.
Note that this provides you easy access to your files from campus, home or abroad!

Where can I go for more information?
