How do I know how much storage space I have used?
If you are logged into the portal: Click on the cog wheel, select Site Settings and Storage Metrics in the right-hand column.
In the OneDrive client, right-click in the icon in the System Tray, click settings and the Account tab. For detailed information, select Manage Storage instead of settings. This will take you to the same page as when using the portal (see above).
I have a private OneDrive-account, will this be a problem?
No, they will not affect each other.
I've lost my files and the are not visible in the trash can, neither the first nor second stage?
