Yes, you can set up OneDrive in Windows 7, though you’ll have to go through a few steps to get it cooking.
Microsoft’s OneDrive is baked into Windows 10. You’re asked to set up the online service during the Windows 10 installation, and the OneDrive program is already accessible if you want to make any changes. That’s fine, but what if you’re still running Windows 7 and you want to tap into OneDrive to store and sync your files in the cloud? Then you’ve got to go through the steps to set up a Microsoft account and download, install, and tune up the OneDrive software.
How can you set up and use OneDrive in Windows 7? Let’s go through the process.
First, here are some details on OneDrive. With a OneDrive account, you get 5 gigabytes of online storage space for free. For $1.99 a month, you can boost that amount by ten times to 50GB. If you have an Office 365 subscription, you’re granted a total of 1 terabyte of space per user.
And what exactly do you do with all that space? OneDrive serves as a backup service. You can back up documents, photos, and other types of files to your OneDrive space. In the event one of those files gets lost or corrupted on your computer, you can snag the backup from your OneDrive storage.
