OneDrive reaches end of support on Windows 7, 8 in January

Microsoft has announced that the OneDrive desktop application will reach the end of support on legacy Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 starting with January 1, 2022.

OneDrive is a file hosting and synchronization service enabling Microsoft customers to access their files from the cloud on all their devices, from anywhere.

In order to focus resources on new technologies and operating systems, and to provide users with the most up-to-date and secure experience, beginning January 1, 2022, updates will no longer be provided for the OneDrive desktop application on your personal Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 devices, the OneDrive Team said.

Customers with systems still running Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 are advised to upgrade their OS to Windows 10 or Windows 11. On devices that don’t meet the upgrade requirements, users can still back up their files to the cloud by manually uploading them to OneDrive on the web.

This will allow them to continue accessing, editing, and sharing their files on all devices with an Internet connection from or using a OneDrive mobile app.
