OneDrive capacity while at UniSA

As of August 2019 available online storage space is 5TB.

NOTE: The storage capacity is to Microsoft's discretion and may change over time. It will more than likely increase, rather than decrease e.g. in 2010 capacity was only 25GB. UniSA has no control over this and has no ability to increase on behalf of users.

When setting up the OneDrive app on your device to sync with your cloud storage, you need to be aware that the device needs to have enough free hard disk space or it will fail to syncronise. Standard laptop and desktops purchases do not have 5TB hard drives or have split drives for data storage. This means that you need to be vigilant when selecting the OneDrive folder location or the number of files/folders being syncronised at any time.

The app allows you to check your cloud storage used and how much is remaining. 

By default, OneDrive automatically makes all files available between the app and online storage. This is fine if you have not yet uploaded anything to OneDrive or only a small amount, but you will need to keep this in mind as your usage increases. If your hard disk drive becomes full, one of your options is to change the files/folders being sync'd.

For other options see OneDrive for Staff or OneDrive for Students.
