Microsoft has been operating the file synchronization and sharing business for many years, and now, the company through OneDrive official Twitter announced that this service has ushered in the tenth birthday: "After ten years of innovation and collaboration, we just started. Join us and celebrate OneDrive's 10th birthday! "The OneDrive currently serves 115 million subscribers and covers 85 percent of the Fortune 500 companies." The company is also on the technology community blog. In the past year alone, OneDrive for Business users have doubled.


In addition, OneDrive's "placeholders" function has also been renamed "Files On Demand" (on-demand files) and launched to Windows 10 Insider testers.

OneDrive generally began in August 2007, in the previous beta stage, it uses the "Windows Live Folders" and the name, and then in August 9, 2007 to & ldquo;Windows Live SkyDrive& Nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp;

inLiveSide.net, We traced back to the company's consumer-level file synchronization service, from March 2005 acquisition of Ray Ozzie's Groove Networks, and in November the same year the acquisition of Foldershare.

In 2008, Microsoft launched since the transplant version of Foldershare (from Linux to Windows Server), and then ushered in the Live Mesh (internal name for Horizon), but constantly renamed.

In the special period, it was first changed from "Live Mesh" to "Live Live", and then in 2012 integrated SkyDrive and Live Mesh (lost a lot of the latter during the characteristics).

In February 2014, SkyDrive changed its name to OneDrive because of a legal dispute with British Sky Broadcasting. Finally, if you want to get a "Cool OneDrive T-shirt", do not forget to keep it happy to the official blog.
