SDExplorer is a free, easy-to-use, but very powerful extension for Windows Explorer. With SDExplorer you can perform all everyday operations with your documents on Microsoft OneDrive™ using Windows Explorer, as if they were on your computer itself.

Windows OneDrive offers free online storage for your data, and SDExplorer is a simple and convenient way to use them!

Why do you need SDExplorer

Then you surely need SDExplorer!

Available Editions

SDExplorer is available in the following two editions:


Using the Base edition, you can perform all common operations on Microsoft's OneDrive™ service. Most general functions with files and folders used by all users are available in SDExplorer Base.


If you're interested in less-common or unique features that are not available even from the OneDrive web interface, you'll be sure to need this edition.

What is new in 3.5 Advanced?

Background Uploader Module

As the name says, it allows you to simply upload any selected file or folder to OneDrive in the background, plus it automatically repeats uploading attempts if a connection error occurs.

Surely, the default drag & drop uploading method is still supported in SDExplorer, but for large amounts of data to upload we recommend using SDExplorer Background Uploader Module instead.
