OneDrive - Sync Client for Windows

To add files to OneDrive, you can upload files through the website or use the Sync Client.

The OneDrive sync client is installed as part of Windows 10. Use of the sync client is optional. The sync client allows the user to access the files if there is not an internet connection. Once an internet connection is reestablished, the files on the computer sync with the online version of the file. OneDrive can be accessed through the Start menu.
