The beginning steps
What is it?
The cloud, simply, refers to software and services that run on the Internet instead of
your computer. There are many advantages to using the cloud. Since the videos, photos,
documents, games and other software that lives in the cloud are available on any device
with an Internet connection, you can access your stuff from anywhere.
Cloud drives, which are accessed over the Internet with client-side software, are useful
for backing up files. A cloud drive provider may offer a limited amount of online storage
space for free and additional storage space for a monthly or yearly fee. The name
"cloud" is derived from the symbol for the Internet on flow charts.
Cloud drives make it possible for a small business or individual to store and sync
documents and other electronic media without having to purchase or maintain
external hard drives or file servers. Cloud drive services are recommended for backups
of 1 terabyte (TB) or less. The service provider is responsible for maintaining the servers,
ensuring availability and providing easy access to the stored data.

In Windows 10
In new installations of Windows 10 for many eligible users, files save to OneDrive by default in
Windows 10, rather than to your PC. This means you can access those files from any device that can
connect to the Internet, and they are protected in case your computer is ever damaged. You can
change your default save setting anytime.

choice location offered to save it. The file is not saved to OneDrive unless you do so separately, and it
is available only on the PC you used to save it.
OneDrive - When you create a file, the first location offered is within the Documents or Pictures folder
underOneDrive. Because these folders sync to your PC, files you save there are available on your PC,
even when it's not connected to the Internet. And you can use any device with an Internet connection
to access your files.
NOTE: No matter which default setting you choose, you still can select the save location you want each
time you save a file. When you click Savefor new files or Save As for existing files, click OneDrive or This
PC and then pick a folder to save your file to.
