University's OneDrive Setup

As part of Microsoft services received by tauex users (employees and researchers) each employee receives a personal storage space of about 5TB in Microsoft's OneDrive. This service is similar to other cloud storage services such as DropBox, Google Drive and Box.

It is important to note that the service is provided as-is without the support of Microsoft or the University. We can not support it at this stage and provide assistance in case of malfunctions, but at least we wanted to inform you about its existence and explain to you how to use it
