Storing your research data in OneDrive & Microsoft Teams

 

One Drive for Business 

OneDrive for Business is an UNSW supported storage platform for research data. It is suitable for storage of data that you do not plan to share routinely with colleagues or research partners. It is a place where you can store, sync, and share your research data across multiple devices with ease and security. OneDrive for Business is suitable for all research data classified up to, and including, Highly Sensitive.

Here’s what OneDrive can help you with:

  • Easier to manage, find and collaborate with your research data
  • Keep your data safe (for up to 7 years post project)
