How to Compare Files on Two Hard Drives
By Jim Campbell
If you have two hard drives and the same files stored on both, you can view the files' details in Windows to compare basic information for both versions. This type of comparison lets you identify the newer file and determine which one you want to keep.
Right-click the file you want to view and select "Properties." Do this with both files so that Windows will show you a side-by-side comparison of both files. A modified date, creation date and file owner are among the properties listed for the files.
A mirrored drive contains a copy of all the files on your main hard drive. Use a side-by-side comparison of files to view which copy is the most recent. You can then edit or move the most recent file, which typically is the more active file.
Viruses and other malware can corrupt files. Open each file you want to compare to view for any corruption. Make sure you copy or move the file that is not corrupted and contains the most recent information for business or other productivity processes.

COMP 1000 Multiple Choice
Upload photos and files to OneDrive
You can add files to OneDrive in many different ways and then get to them from anywhere.
Using the OneDrive website
Depending on the web browser you use, you can upload files up to 250GB in size. (This limit is per file, not total.)
Note: For transferring large files or lots of files, we recommend adding the files to the OneDrive desktop app rather than using the Upload button on the website.
On the OneDrive website , sign in with your Microsoft account, and then browse to the location where you want to add the files.
Select Upload .
Select the files you want to upload, and then select Open .
You can also drag files from File Explorer or Mac Finder straight to your files on the OneDrive website.
In the Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge browser, you can also upload folders from the Folder option on the Upload menu, or drag folders to the website.
Learn ways to organize and find photos in OneDrive .
Using File Explorer or Mac Finder to copy or move files to OneDrive
You can copy or move files between folders within OneDrive, or from other folders on your computer. (When you move files from other folders on your computer into a OneDrive folder, you're removing them from your computer and adding them to OneDrive.)
For both File Explorer and Mac Finder, if you want to copy the item rather than move it, right-click the file or folder and select Copy , then open the OneDrive folder (or sub-folder) and right-click > Paste a copy of the item to OneDrive.
To move a file using Windows File Explorer, drag files from the file list in the right pane to OneDrive in the left pane.
To move a file using Mac Finder, drag files from the file list in the right pane to OneDrive in the left pane (if you have OneDrive listed there under Favorites ). After a moment, Finder will switch to show your existing OneDrive files and folders in the right pane, and you can drag the file into the sub-folder of your choice.
In Windows 10
In new installations of Windows 10 for many eligible users, files save to OneDrive by default in Windows 10, rather than to your PC. This means you can access those files from any device that can connect to the Internet, and they are protected in case your computer is ever damaged. You can change your default save setting anytime. Learn how to set where your files are saved or move your files to OneDrive .
In Windows 8.1 or Windows RT 8.1
You can add files and folders to OneDrive automatically from your PC without having to go to the OneDrive website. Files you add to OneDrive this way can be up to 250GB in size. (If you sign in with a work or school account, the maximum file size is 15GB.)
Saving to OneDrive automatically
You can save directly to OneDrive from Microsoft Office files (like Word docs and Excel worksheets), PDFs, and other documents. If your PC has a built-in camera, you can automatically save copies of the photos you take directly to OneDrive so you’ll always have a backup. To make sure your PC is set up to save automatically, check your OneDrive settings.
Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings , and then tap Change PC settings . (If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings , and then click Change PC settings .)
For documents, select OneDrive , and then turn on Save documents to OneDrive by default .
For photos, select Camera roll , and then choose Upload photos at good quality , or for higher resolution copies, choose Upload photos at best quality .
To move photos and files to OneDrive using the OneDrive app
When you move files, you're removing them from your PC and adding them to OneDrive.
Select the arrow next to OneDrive and choose This PC .
Browse to the files you want to move, and then swipe down on them or right-click them to select them.
Select Cut .
Select the arrow next to This PC and choose OneDrive to browse to a folder in your OneDrive.
Swipe in from the top or bottom edge of the screen or right-click to open the app commands, and then select Paste .
Using the OneDrive desktop app
If you have Windows 7, Windows Vista, or a Mac, you can install the free OneDrive desktop app to upload files and folders to OneDrive automatically. Files you upload using the desktop app can be up to 20GB in size.
Using a mobile app
You can upload files to OneDrive using the OneDrive mobile app for Android, iOS, or Windows Phone. To learn how, see:
Upload files or photos to OneDrive in Android
Upload files or photos to OneDrive in iOS
Upload files or photos to OneDrive for Windows mobile devices
From Microsoft Office or Microsoft 365
In any Office document, select File > Save As , choose your OneDrive, and then pick the folder where you want to save the file.
Microsoft might limit the number of files that you can upload to OneDrive each month.

OneDrive and Office Online: Working with Office Online
Lesson 5: working with office online.
Office Online is similar to the applications in the desktop Microsoft Office suite, but it's not identical. Because it's free to use , Office Online has fewer features than the desktop version. Still, if you already know how to use Microsoft Office, you should find Office Online fairly easy to work with.
This lesson will focus on using Word , Excel , and PowerPoint . To learn about OneNote, visit Microsoft Office's OneNote Online page .
Watch the video below to learn more about using Office Online.
Office Online includes useful tools for creating basic Office documents . However, it lacks advanced document formatting tools, which can make it a challenge to create polished and professional-looking documents. One way to avoid this problem is by creating documents in Office Online, then polishing them as needed in desktop Office programs .
Word Online is the online version of Microsoft Word . You can use Word Online to create text documents , including letters , resumes , and flyers .
If you’re unfamiliar with Microsoft Word, review our Word 2016 tutorial to learn how to create and format documents.
Compared to the desktop version, Word Online has fewer editing and formatting tools . This means you won’t be able to use Word Online to heavily customize the appearance of your documents. In addition, Word Online lacks several advanced features, including the ability to track changes and use SmartArt and Mail Merge .
Click the buttons in the interactive below to become familiar with the Word Online interface.
The File tab allows you to create new documents, open existing documents, print documents, and more.
The Home tab gives you access to some of the most commonly used commands for working with Word Online, including copying and pasting , formatting , paragraph alignment , and document styles . The Home tab is selected by default whenever you open Word Online.
The Insert tab allows you to insert pictures , tables , hyperlinks , page numbers , and more into your document.
Page Layout Tab
The Page Layout tab allows you to change the print formatting of your document, including margin width , page orientation , and more.
You can use the Review tab to access Word Online's editing features, including spell check and comments . Comments make it easier to collaborate on documents.
The View tab allows you to switch between Reading View and Editing View . Reading view is helpful if you don't need to make any changes to your document.
Edit in Word
Click here to open the document in the desktop version of Word. Note that you must have Office installed on your computer to use this feature.
This is where you'll add and edit text for the document.
Excel Online is the online version of Microsoft Excel . Like the desktop version of Excel, Excel Online allows you to use spreadsheets, or worksheets , to store and analyze data in organized workbooks .
If you’re unfamiliar with using Microsoft Excel, review our Excel 2016 tutorial to learn how to create and use workbooks.
Excel Online contains many of the most useful Excel features. For example, you can perform calculations with formulas . You can even organize your data into tables and charts , although you won't be able to do much to customize their appearance.
Most of Excel's advanced tools are not included in Excel Online. For instance, you won't be able to create PivotTables, perform advanced data analysis, or customize the page layout.
Click the buttons in the interactive below to become more familiar with the Excel Online interface.
From the File tab, you can create new workbooks, open existing workbooks, print workbooks, and more.
The Home tab gives you access to some of the most commonly used commands for working with data in Excel Online, including copying and pasting , formatting , and changing number formats . The Home tab is selected by default whenever you open Excel Online.
The Insert tab allows you to insert charts , tables , and more, which can help you visualize and communicate your workbook data graphically.
The Data tab gives you access to advanced data options. However, this tab contains very few commands compared to the desktop version of Excel, so you may not find it very useful.
You can use the Review tab to access Excel Online's editing features, including spell check and comments . Comments make it easier to collaborate on spreadsheets.
The View tab allows you to switch between Reading view and Editing view . Reading view hides the Ribbon and other toolbars, which makes your data easier to read.
Edit in Excel
Click here to open the current workbook in the desktop version of Excel. Note that you must have a version of Office installed on your computer to use this feature.
This is where you'll enter the data for the current worksheet.
When you select a chart, the Chart tab will appear on the Ribbon. From here, you can customize the chart's appearance, change the chart type, and more.
If you're working with a lot of data, it's easy to switch between worksheets. You can also click the New Worksheet button to the right of the existing worksheets to add a new worksheet.
PowerPoint Online is the online version of Microsoft PowerPoint . You can use PowerPoint Online to create slideshow presentations that include text, images, and SmartArt graphics.
If you’re unfamiliar with Microsoft PowerPoint, review our PowerPoint 2016 tutorial to learn how to create and format presentations.
While it still lacks many of tools found in the desktop version, PowerPoint has fewer limitations than Word and Excel. You can easily insert pictures , SmartArt , animations , and transitions .
However, there are some design tools that are not available in PowerPoint Online, including Slide Master view . While it is possible to create professional presentations with PowerPoint Online, you won't have as much control over the way these presentations look as you would in the desktop version.
Click the buttons in the interactive below to become more familiar with the PowerPoint Online interface.
From the File tab, you can create new presentations, open existing presentations, print presentations, and more.
The Insert tab allows you to insert pictures , text boxes , SmartArt , and more.
You can apply themes from the Design tab. A theme is a predefined combination of colors, fonts, and effects that can quickly change the look and feel of your entire slide show. Different themes also include different slide layouts.
You can apply slide transitions from the Transitions tab. Transitions are the movements you see between slides when presenting your slide show. Note that PowerPoint Online includes very few transitions compared to the desktop version.
You can use the Review tab to access PowerPoint Online's editing features, including spell check and comments . Comments make it easier to collaborate on presentations.
Slide Navigation Pane
The s lide navigation pane allows you to view and work with the slides in your presentation. The selected slide will appear in the slide pane to the right. You can add, delete, duplicate, and rearrange slides in the slides navigation pane.
Here, you can view and edit the selected slide.
You can add notes for each slide in the Notes pane. Often called speaker notes, these notes can help you deliver or prepare for your presentation.
The Home tab gives you access to the most commonly used commands, including copying and pasting , formatting , and adding new slides . The Home tab is selected by default whenever you open PowerPoint Online.
The Animations tab allows you to animate text and objects. Animations can be used to draw attention to specific content or make the slide easier to read. PowerPoint Online includes only a limited number of animations compared to the desktop version.
The View tab allows you to switch between several views for your presentation, including Slide Show view , which you'll use to play the presentation.
Edit in PowerPoint
Click here to open the current presentation in the desktop version of PowerPoint. Note that you must have a version of Office installed on your computer to use this feature.
