OneDrive

OneDrive is a “cloud” based, file hosting service. OneDrive allows users to access their files from a web browser after uploading them to cloud storage. Users can keep the files private, share them with friends, or make the files public. Publicly shared files do not require a Microsoft account for access. There are several benefits to saving your files in the cloud. The two biggest are probably that OneDrive files are backed up and so you don’t have to worry about that and the other is that they do not take up all that space on your device.

To access your OneDrive in a web browser go to onedrive.live.com.
