Sharing Folders With OneDrive

in IT Solutions September 2, 2015

 Sync shared folders to your computer

You can add folders shared with you to your OneDrive so they sync down to your computer. They'll look like any other folder, but when you edit files in shared folders the changes will show up to everyone else with permission for that folder.

Here's how it works:

  1. Go to your Shared list on OneDrive.com to check if folder(s) have been shared to you with the ability to edit.
    If there are none, create a folder and share it with edit permissions to your friends.
  2. From the Shared list, select the folder you want to sync and click 'Add to my OneDrive'.
  3. If you have the OneDrive app installed on your PC or Mac, the folder will also sync down unless you have opted to only sync some folders in OneDrive settings.
  4. The folder will also be accessible from your main OneDrive folder on OneDrive.com and on the OneDrive mobile app, if you have it installed.


You can sync shared folders on Windows 10, Windows 7 and Mac. If you're running Windows 8.1, upgrade to Windows 10 for free.
