What is OneDrive for Business?
OneDrive for Business is an online file storage service (ex. Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, etc.) that is part of your Ithaca College Office 365 account. You can access your "cloud" storage area by accessing the Outlook Web App directly, or via myhome. OneDrive for Business is only available to current students. If you graduate or leave the college, your access to your "cloud" will be removed. It is important that you copy files from OneDrive for Business to a new location before graduating or leaving Ithaca College.
How is OneDrive for Business different from OneDrive?
OneDrive for Business is directly associated with your Ithaca College Office 365 account (firstname.lastname@example.org). OneDrive is the free, consumer version of OneDrive for Business and is associated with a personal Microsoft or Outlook.com account.
