Hi there,

 

I've uploaded a file to my business onedrive and set the access level to the below. Am I correct in saying that you have to be signed into a Microsoft account which has onedrive access to see the file? So whomever I send this file to, I have to be sure they have a Microsoft account?

 

Can someone please tell me if you're able to access this test file: https://michellepace-my.sharepoint.com/:b:/p/michelle/EbNpcmbt_rFNs5MUrgExa3QBt-Q02quo9O_3mNINFmXsDw...

They dont need to be signed anywhere, you can easily test that by opening your link in a private session. I can access it just fine, for the record.

@Vasil Michev thank you. I did do the exact same test but kept getting an error. Everything seems to be working now. Thanks for your reply.
