OneDrive for Business FAQ

Are OneDrive and OneDrive for Business the same thing?
No. OneDrive is Microsoft’s personal cloud-storage solution and OneDrive for Business is their enterprise solution. They can work together on the same machine, but do not share accounts. If you have both installed, look for “OneDrive – Hamilton County School District” to identify OneDrive for Business. Return to Top
