I am inserting a link in an email to a video that resides on my OneDrive. The format " C:\Users\jwhll\OneDrive - Fair St.-Butler High Schools Alumni Assoc., Inc (1)\Butler Bldg Park\Butler Center", is not accepted as URL for the Web page. How do I set the proper format for the reader to access my video on OneDrive?

Hello @FSBHTiger ,

 

What you seem to be trying to isnert at the moment is a file location, like something that'd be typed directly into a computer to search it, rather than a site navigation. Does OneDrive offer you an actual URL - something under a general "Share" or a "share with others to access" functionality like other cloud drives?

You are correct. By selecting the Share option, OneDrive produces a link URL that can be copied and pasted in the email. Thankyou

Otherwise, if OneDrive doesn't allow people without a OneDrive account of their own to be able to access files you share, then it might not be possible. Other cloud drives generally host and share their files in a way that if you provide the file's share URL and turn on the correct permissions, anyone with that URL can at least view the file.
