Using OneDrive as alternative to the P-drive

19 February 2024

Leiden University has decided to use OneDrive for the storage of personal files. In time, the P-drive will no longer be available for file storage. You may encounter this when you receive a new laptop with Windows 11. But you can also change to OneDrive now. OneDrive has many advantages.

What is OneDrive?

OneDrive is Microsoft's online storage service, comparable to Dropbox, GoogleDrive and SurfDrive. OneDrive offers better security options and has the advantage that you can easily share files and combine this with other functions within Office 365.
See the information on the staff website OneDrive: the online alternative for your university P-drive.
In the helpdesk portal you can find answers to many questions about OneDrive: go to OneDrive FAQ. For more detailed information about using OneDrive, see also the special ISSC Newsletter about OneDrive.
