Using the OneDrive Remote Destination

To begin using the OneDrive destination, first, make sure you have access to a Microsoft account. Go to the BackupBuddy Remote Destinations page (BackupBuddy -> Destinations). Once you are on this Destinations page, you can now begin the process of adding the OneDrive Remote Destination. To add the destination, simply click the "+ Add New" button. From there, select the OneDrive destination and click the button to log in to OneDrive. A window will appear asking you to log into your Microsoft account, simply enter the Microsoft credentials and you will be given an authentication code.

If you get a warning/error message that says "Invalid Authentication Request" and/or "Missing Username Parameter", please make sure that BackupBuddy is licensed on the site here:

wp-admin (dashboard) -> Settings -> iThemes Licensing ->

As BackupBuddy needs to be licensed in order to use the OneDrive remote destination.


Enter the authentication code provided and click "Link Account". You are now able to select the folder of where you want to store the backups in the OneDrive destination, along with changing the name of the destination and setting up archive limits.


Once you have verified everything is in order, simply click the button "+ Add Destination". You are now able to begin using the OneDrive destination!
