All current University of Otago students have access to OneDrive. Many staff also have access via the Microsoft 365 project rollout:

Microsoft 365 for staff

The Student Desktop H:\ Drive only has a limited amount of storage space, so you should store extra files on your University of Otago OneDrive. It is recommended that you keep the files you are currently working on in your H:\ Drive, then transfer them to your OneDrive for storage.

Saving and document storage with Student Desktop

Another advantage is that you can access OneDrive through your StudentMail without needing to log in to the Student Desktop. You can even edit files within OneDrive, without having to download them, using Microsoft 365 Online.

Open, upload, or create files online

From the online OneDrive, you can open, upload, or create new files by using the menu bar at the top of the screen. If you open or create a new file, it will open directly in your web browser using Microsoft 365 Online.
