This post is special for everyone because in it I have talked about data security. If you are even a little careful about protecting your data (top secret files), read this post till the end.
When it comes to data storage, the first thing that comes to your mind is pen drive, hard drive, memory card, etc. And I am also sure that you too must have saved all your important files in it. But the best medium to store data is cloud storage.
Perhaps you too must have heard about it at some time or the other. If you do not know about cloud storage, then let me tell you that it is a means in which we save our important data or files on an online platform and can view and use it whenever needed.
For cloud storage you can use Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, Amazon cloud Drive etc. But here I will tell you about OneDrive and how to store your files in it.
You might be wondering why I should store my important data in OneDrive? When all my important documents are safe in my mobile, laptop/desktop, SD card. Right?
But what will happen if your pen drive, memory card, laptop is lost or stolen. Or will your PC’s hard drive crash? In this way all your data can be lost. You also know very well that trouble never comes without warning.
So to avoid facing these difficulties, you should save all your important documents in cloud storage. And it also has the advantage that your data is saved on the online server so you can access it from anywhere. So for this you do not need to carry pen drive, hard disk etc. with you.

What is OneDrive?
This is a service from Microsoft that provides an easy way for all Microsoft account users to store, sync and share all types of files for free. To avail its benefits you must have a Microsoft account.
If your account is not in Microsoft then I have explained the method to create Microsoft account in my last post. So you can create your account by reading our that post.
You can store files up to 5GB in Microsoft OneDrive. If you have less than 5GB storage capacity, you will have to purchase the premium plan of OneDrive. Click on this link to view OneDrive plans.
However, up to 5GB of space is plenty and most of the people are using the free plan, I am also using the free plan. If you need additional space, do not purchase the premium plan or the free plan is best.
|Note- Microsoft is a trusted company so you can store all your important files in Microsoft OneDrive without any worry. So you must have understood well what is OneDrive?
How To Store Important Files And Data In OneDrive Cloud Storage
I am assuming here that you have created your account in Microsoft. Because only with Microsoft user ID and password you can login to OneDrive.
If your account is not in Microsoft then click on this link and create an account on OneDrive….
Step 1 – Click on the first link – OneDrive Login
Step 2 – The sign in page of OneDrive will open in front of you. In which you have to see the email ID and password of the Microsoft account and get entered in the OneDrive dashboard.
Step 3 – As you enter your password and click on Sign in, the OneDrive dashboard will open on your screen.
Now you can store your important files or folders here. I think you are well understanding about what is OneDrive.
How To Store Files?
- Click on upload. 2 options will be shown in the drop down menu (Files and Folder) in which you will be asked whether you want to upload single files or folders.
- Click on files to upload single file.
- If you want to upload the entire folder then click on the folder.
Once the file is successfully uploaded, it will start showing in the file dashboard.
So you have understood what is OneDrive, in this way you can save any kind of important documents in OneDrive Cloud Storage and can use them when needed.
Cloud storage is also the best option in terms of security because instead of keeping your important files or data there, storing them online is more secure.
