Ensure that your work is backed up to OneDrive

Be prepared in the case of a hardware failure or accident by regularly backing up your work to OneDrive.

Backing up on a PC:

  1. Click the cloud icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the taskbar and then click the OneDrive logo.
  2. Click the Settings Gear icon in the top right of the menu, then select Settings
  3. In the menu, select Manage Backup.
  4. Desktop, Documents, and Pictures folders will all be chosen to back up by default, click on any one of these to deselect it from backing up to OneDrive if you would like. Once you have selected the folders you would like, click Start backup or save changes at the bottom right.
  5. OneDrive will begin backing up your selected files automatically. You can choose to View Sync Progress or close the window.

Backing up on a Mac

For CU system staff using a Mac, the UIS Service Desk has a recently updated guide: Syncing Files and Folders on a Mac to OneDrive.
