What’s the difference between OneDrive for Business and OneDrive personal?

OneDrive and OneDrive for Business share the same name, but in all honesty, they are different as not simple as “one is the business or professional version of the other”.

OneDrive is the personal online storage of your files. With it, you can organize your files folders and access them anytime, anywhere. In addition, you can make it a dashboard to quickly jump to your emails, calendar, contacts or to create a new document on the web. Now, it offers up to 15GB free storage.
