OneDrive and SharePoint provide access to a secure platform for storing files and other important data. You can utilize these platforms' free cloud storage space to store your documents, photos, personal information, videos, etc.

You can do it manually or automatically to transfer files from OneDrive to SharePoint. This article will show you how to transfer files from OneDrive to SharePoint. We'll also show you how to transfer OneDrive between PCs using EaseUS Todo PCTrans.

Things about OneDrive and SharePoint

OneDrive and SharePoint are cloud-based storage services created by Microsoft to store, share, and synchronize files between different devices. Although people perceive them to be similar, OneDrive and SharePoint have varying functions. Let's look at how each works.

OneDrive

OneDrive allows you to save files and photos and access them with different devices from anywhere. The storage service also allows you to edit and share files across your devices. Once saved on OneDrive, you won't lose your files even if your device gets damaged or stolen.

The service allows you to stay connected and share important files with family and friends. You'll only need to share a link to enable them to access your photos, files, and folders.

SharePoint

SharePoint allows you to store, distribute and manage files across users with different access permissions. It's an excellent platform to collaborate with employees via computer or mobile using an internal website. SharePoint allows you to customize everything based on preference.

For example, you can:

  • Add capabilities using apps.
  • Perform integrations outside Microsoft using app store tools.
  • Develop websites using web design tools.
  • Customize sites to specific users.

Why Transfer Files from OneDrive to SharePoint?

Moving files to SharePoint is important because it enables effortless collaboration and communication among team members. Unlike OneDrive, SharePoint allows different people to access one file simultaneously.

This enables team collaboration since members can work on a single project simultaneously, with each person making their contributions. The workspace enables you to store and share content, schedule tasks, and manage projects. SharePoint also enables one to make on-site file management where you can set permissions for members to access different file sections.

As a person in charge of the team, SharePoint allows you to control access to the files, minimizing users from viewing information they shouldn't. Most people would also want to transfer files to SharePoint because it allows one to create an intranet. This means you can create internal web pages accessible to only your team members.

Transfer Files from OneDrive to SharePoint Manually

The manual method is the first and most common method to move files from OneDrive to SharePoint. This enables you to share files with various members of your team. You can apply this technique in the following steps:

1. Open OneDrive.

2. Choose the files you want to move to SharePoint under "My Files."

3. Next, click "More options" and then "Move to."
