One Terrabyte Cloud storage with OneDrive

As an addition to the free Office installations you also get 1 Terabyte of cloud storage. We are currently working on methods as best to deliver this to users on school devices but in the meantime you can access the storage online at https://boothamschool.onedrive.com/ , sign in as above if requested.

The data is stored in the EU so you can use this storage for work related data without breaching Data Protection. If you use other online storage such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Just cloud, Box, iCloud among others, I would encourage that data with personal information is migrated across to OneDrive for Business. We can currently support a sync client on laptops with sufficient local storage, please contact us if you are a school laptop user and would like the client installing.

If you wish to install the client on personal devices it is available from the main Office installation above, this URL https://onedrive.live.com/about/en-us/download/ (32bit version recommended), or search for OneDrive for Business in the app stores. Please be aware this is not the same service as OneDrive Personal.
