If you need to share any large files with another CU employee or student, follow the instructions below to see how to accomplish this using OneDrive.
OneDrive files can only be shared with internal CU users. You cannot share OneDrive files with anyone outside of the University.
Sharing Files in OneDrive
- Go to https://onedrive.live.com/about/en-us/signin/ and log in with your University email and password.
- Upload your file(s) to OneDrive by clicking Upload > Files in the menu at the top of the screen.
If you need to put the file(s) in a specific folder, create the folder first or navigate to the existing folder. Once in the correct folder, click Upload > Files.
- Once your file(s) has uploaded, click the checkmark circle to the left of the name of the file to select it. Then click Copy link at the top of the screen.
If you'd like to share everything in a certain folder, navigate to the root of that folder and click the checkmark circle next to the folder name. Then click Copy link.
The link will now be in your clipboard. All you need to do is paste it wherever you need it. If someone clicks the link, they will be taken to your OneDrive and asked to log in before they can view the contents of the link.
