The OneDrive sync client provides an easy way for you to synchronize documents and folders stored in OneDrive to your desktop. UWSA and UWSS employees will likely find this to be the easiest way to access documents stored in OneDrive from their computer. The following steps will show you an easy way to set up the OneDrive sync client on your Macintosh computer.

Step-by-Step Setup

  1. Download and install the OneDrive sync app.
    Important: If you are currently using the OneDrive Mac Store app, you must first uninstall it before installing the latest build of the sync app.
  2. Launch the OneDrive app and sign in using your UWSA or UWSS full e-mail address and password.

Your OneDrive for Mac sync client is now set up. Any changes you make to items in this folder will automatically be synced back to OneDrive in the cloud.
