What is OneDrive?

OneDrive (formally known as "SkyDrive") is a feature within Eagle Mail/Office 365 that provides an alternative to your Jupiter account for personal data storage. OneDrive provides an easy to use web based approach to upload/download your personal data FTPing files like in the past. You also gain more personal data storage space of 15GB. This ability alone is key to today's demanding workloads that require larger file sizes and
more of them saved in an area that is easy to access anywhere you are.

OneDrive also has "Microsoft Office" components like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote built right in. This means that you don't have to own a copy of Microsoft Office or any components of the suite in order to create, edit, or view these files. If you need to create a Word document you can do so just by selecting 'Word' from within your OneDrive and giving it a file's that easy.

The overall experience of using or accessing your OneDrive account may differ in some scenarios depending on the browser that you're using. For the best experience, you should update your browser to the latest version and make sure Microsoft Silverlight is installed and running for browsers that support it. Silverlight is required for some OneDrive functionality.

** Please ensure that you're using a supported browser for your computer, as explained below:

Microsoft Windows

A.) Windows 7, 8, Vista, and Windows XP SP2 or higher:

  • Internet Explorer 8, 9, 10
  • Google Chrome 23+
  • Mozilla Firefox 17+

B.) Older versions of Windows:

  • Use a mail client (e.g. Outlook, Windows Live Mail) - 

Apple Mac OS

A.) Mac OS X 10.6 and higher:

      • Safari 5.1+
      • Google Chrome 23+
      • Mozilla Firefox 17+

B.) Mac OS X below 10.6:

      • Use a mail client


OneDrive provides a location for storing your files online, but it's not an FTP site, nor does it function
with an FTP client.

Trouble logging into OneDrive AND you were admitted on or after September 07, 2013? The reason for this is that
an account was not automatically created & sync'd with Microsoft due to their recent changes to OneDrive.
Therefore, you will need to create your own personal OneDrive account.
