With OneDrive, you can sync files between your computer and the cloud, so you can get to your files from anywhere - your computer, your mobile device, and even through the OneDrive website at OneDrive.com. If you add, change, or delete a file or folder in your OneDrive folder, the file or folder is added, changed, or deleted on the OneDrive website and vice versa. You can work with your synced files directly in File Explorer and access your files even when you’re offline. Whenever you’re online, any changes that you or others make will sync automatically.
When requested enter your Flinders email address in the following format (e.g FAN@flinders.edu.au)
For instructions on how to set up file syncing refer to Microsoft's website.
- Due care should be taken before syncing your files so as to ensure you do not run out of hard disk space.
- The default storage location for OneDrive files in Windows is "C:\Users\"<FAN>"\OneDrive - Flinders".
The default storage location for OneDrive files on MAC is: Users/"<FAN>"/OneDrive - Flinders".
This has been done intentionally so that files are only accessible to the user logged into the computer and offline file storage is created for this content. Changing the default storage location to an external drive / or another location on the computer is NOT recommended.
- By default, the 'Sync all files and folders in OneDrive-Flinders' is selected. This means that any file that gets added your OneDrive cloud account is automatically synced to your computer. It is recommended you change this default setting by unticking 'Sync all files and folders in OneDrive-Flinders'
