Uploading Files and Folders to OneDrive

Microsoft OneDrive is Drexel’s approved solution for secure cloud storage, file creation, and file sharing. With OneDrive, any member of the Drexel community can store, sync, and share files of any type. Each user account provides a total of 5 Terabytes (TB) of storage space.

To upload local files to your OneDrive account for future access, follow the steps below.


  1. Browse to https://portal.office.com
  2. Sign in with your Drexel email and password
  3. From the left-hand navigation bar, select the OneDrive tile
  4. Select either Upload > Files or Upload > Folder
    • If you don’t see Upload > Folder, create a folder in OneDrive by selecting New > Folder. Name your new folder, then click Create to save your changes. Once the folder has been created, upload the desired files to that folder
  5. Once your computer’s file explorer appears, select the files or folder you would like to upload to OneDrive
  6. After the files or folder are selected, click Open or Select Folder to upload the items to OneDrive
