OneDrive: No Internet? No problem.

Files you save to OneDrive are available online at OneDrive.com and offline on your PC. That means you can use them anytime, even when you’re not connected to the Internet. When you reconnect, OneDrive updates the online versions with changes you made offline. Offline files come in handy when you’re stuck without Wi-Fi, but they also take up space on your PC.

OneDrive : Stay in Sync

File Explorer icons show you the sync status of your offline folders and files.

  • Image of sync icon It’s in sync with online version.
