In the event that you get a new ESU laptop or plan to get your computer reloaded, you will need to move your files to OneDrive. Once you get the new laptop you will sign into OneDrive and they will sync to your new computer. Files can be accessed via OneDrive on your computer, web, or mobile app.

You will first need to have OneDrive set up and signed in. Click here for directions if you have not set that up yet.

When copying files from your computer it is not recommended that you drag and drop or cut and paste files. We recommend that you copy and paste. This will ensure that the files stay in their original locations just in case something does not copy over correctly.  

Navigate to your to the files/folders on your computer. Select all folders & files (ctrl+A) and copy them (ctrl+C). Open your ‘’ folder from the file explorer. Click inside the OneDrive folder and paste (ctrl+V) the files. The files will start to copy over. This can take a few minutes depending on how many files you have. Once you have confirmed all files are in OneDrive.
