OneDrive as Disaster Recovery?

OneDrive is a great way to collaborate with friends or colleagues--but did you know it can also be an important component to your own personal disaster recovery plan?    Here's how:  OneDrive lets you work on local copies of your files and then sync them to the cloud in real time.  If something were to happen to your PC, for example, your hard drive crashes--everything is already backed up in the cloud right up to the moment of your last sync.  Once you get a new hard drive and install OneDrive, your files begin syncing back to your PC again.  No data loss at all!

ESU proves OneDrive for every current student, faculty and staff member.  Click here for more info:  https://sky2.emporia.edu/hornet365/Pages/OneDrive.aspx
