Is it possible to use confluence in place of one drive and if yes how or should I use Explorer as a bridge among the two?

Hi Gian,

Confluence is a wiki, you could probably compare it to Mediawiki (the software behind Wikipedia) or Sharepoint.  While you can store files in it, it limits file sizes by default to 10MB.  

Basically, while you could use it as a file sharing solution, this is not the use case for this software, and therefore is not a very good solution.

I would recommend using a proper file sharing service, such as Dropbox for Business, Onedrive, Google Drive, etc.  You could then link this into Confluence using one of many different plugins that allow you to browse the contents of file sharing services.

Thank you!! To link confluence and Onedrive is ok explorer or si better something else?
