OneDrive - Group vs Personal Accounts

Group OneDrive - For your website's documents

  • Each University website should have a Group OneDrive account
  • Post documents for your site visitors to view or download
  • Large storage capacity for your site's documents, up to 1TB
  • Many sites already have an active group OneDrive to use for documents, but if one is needed for your site signup for a group account.
  • Should not be used to post documents for classes or academic work, Blackboard should be used for this purpose.

Personal OneDrive - For your own documents

  • Everyone who has a UAlbany email address has a personal OneDrive account by default
  • Should not be used to host web documents on University websites
  • Collaborate with others more easily, internally and externally
