If you prefer to save your files locally and have no intention of using OneDrive, you can simply ignore this guide.
Our Lifetime Microsoft Office 365 Professional Plus For 15 Devices comes with a free complimentary 5TB OneDrive. However, These complimentary cloud drives are subject to frequent throttling that can last days, weeks or even months. Making it unusable for long periods of time. In addition, Microsoft does not allow disconnecting complimentary OneDrive. This means that an accidental file deletion in a complimentary OneDrive on just one of these devices means permanent file deletion across all devices that use the same complimentary OneDrive.
Even though these concerns can completely be ignored by saving files locally, we understand that some users will still want to use OneDrive together with their Microsoft Office 365 that is why we came up with the best solution to ensure that you can still use OneDrive worry-free by connecting your free personal OneDrive account to your lifetime Office 365.
1. Click here and sign up for a free OneDrive account. If you already have a Microsoft account, just sign in. You will receive a free 5GB storage which should be enough to store your Office files. Unlike complimentary OneDrives, a personal OneDrive does not throttle because it is resource independent. You can also freely connect or disconnect any device of your choice to and from your OneDrive negating all our concerns mentioned above.

Simply click Microsoft apps only since we are just going to use this account for OneDrive.
5. That’s it! Congratulations! You are now using your personal OneDrive account with your Lifetime Office 365!
