Due to the fact that local storage devices can crash and result in loss of data, most people are beginning to save important files on an external server where it can be accessed easily. This method has worked for years as small files can be uploaded whole but larger files are often split into several parts which may give rise to an incomplete document when downloaded. The need for a more efficient way to save large files became paramount.
With the advent of file hosting services, it has become easy to save large files online which can be accessed much later through a download link. These files could be encrypted or made public to be downloaded by everyone on any platform. OneDrive allows you to save and share files online ensuring that you do not need to worry about losing valuable space on your local storage device.
