The OneDrive cloud storage solution has become an important part of Microsoft's platform, and in Windows 10, it's baked directly into the operating system. You're set up for it when you log in with your Microsoft Account, and you'll find the storage available in File Explorer 

For a single file, you can drag and drop it to the OneDrive folder. But for large amounts of files and long-range-planning, it's better to use professional backup utility. Besides, new files could be created every single day, so it is better to schedule backup them to OneDrive cloud.
