Syncing OneDrive to HCC Desktop to Backup Files

Step 1

Click on the search button on your HCC desktop.

It looks like a magnifying glass.

Step 2

Type in "OneDrive" and then click on the OneDrive desktop application.

Step 3

Right click on the "OneDrive - Howard Community College" option in the navigation window.

Step 4

Click on the Settings button.

Step 5

Select the Backup tab and then select the "Manage backup" button.

Step 6

Now you can select from three locations (Desktop Folder, Documents Folder, and Pictures Folder) on your HCC desktop that can be backed up to the OneDrive cloud. A blue checkmark will show which locations you've selected. You can select the "Start backup" button once you are ready.


We recommend BEFORE selecting the Start backup button that you ensure files in these locations DO NOT include any regulated or confidential data.

Step 7

The backup process will begin. This may take some time to complete depending on the number of files and their sizes.
