How to Upload Files to OneDrive

FileZilla Pro supports OneDrive Personal and OneDrive for Business and Sharepoint.

This feature is only available on FileZilla Pro, if you didn’t buy it yet you can buy FileZilla Pro from our Store →

Below you find a step by step guide, if you prefer you can watch our How to Upload Files to OneDrive video tutorial.

What you’ll need to upload files to OneDrive:

  • A OneDrive account
  • Your OneDrive login details (these will usually be the same as your Microsoft login)
  • For OneDrive for Business and Sharepoint your account is provided by your organization administrator

Note: If FileZilla Pro is configured to save passwords protected by a master password (see Protect Passwords with a Master Password), you’ll only need to authenticate it for use with OneDrive once; it will save the access token for future connections.

Configuring FileZilla Pro for OneDrive

  1. Open FileZilla Pro.
  2. In the menu bar, click on File > Site Manager….
  3. Click on New Site.
  4. Select Microsoft OneDrive from the Protocol drop down list.
  5. Click on Connect.
    FileZilla Pro will send an authentication request to OneDrive.
    OneDrive will display a pop-up window asking you to log in.
  6. Enter the email address that you use for OneDrive.
  7. Enter the password for your OneDrive account
  8. Scroll to the bottom of the pop-up Window and click on Yes.
  9. Check the server certificate details displayed – Common name should include microsoftonline.com.

    Your OneDrive directories and files will be displayed in the Remote directories section of the main window.
  10. If your OneDrive account is a personal OneDrive account you will see the following
    directories:

    • My Drives, with your personal OneDrive drives;
    • Shared with Me, with items shared with you by other users.

    If your account is OneDrive for Business account you will also see:

    • the directory Groups with your organization group drives;
    • Sharepoint with your organization Sharepoint drives;
    • Sites with your organization site drives

You can now transfer files between your local machine and your OneDrive account.

For OneDrive for Business and Sharepoint the organization administrator needs to login to grant access on behalf of the organization. Otherwise regular organization users will not be able to access their drives.

Also the drive is not automatically provisioned for new created users. They have to access their drive outside FileZilla Pro at least once to have the drive created.
