Microsoft OneDrive can be your cloud-based storage solution for all your users' information, files, and folders. When users upload files, photos, or videos from their devices to OneDrive, they can get to those files from anywhere—a PC, Mac, tablet, phone, or the Web.

Start using the latest OneDrive API—This RESTful API not only allows you to work with OneDrive files across multiple platforms, but you can also handle large file uploads, share, search, and more.

Develop your apps to work with OneDrive, so your users can easily access, manage, and share files on the go. For example, they can:

  • Automatically upload photos, videos, and Microsoft Office files to OneDrive from your apps.

  • Open their OneDrive files from your app.

  • Browse all their OneDrive files, and files shared with them.

  • Share files by sending a link in email or getting a link to copy and paste.

  • Move, delete, and rename files, and create new folders.

  • Quickly get to documents they've recently opened.

The following resources show you how to get started now.
