On 09.10.2014 Microsoft has announced new products to OneDrive by Jason Moore on the OneDrive blog.

In the past, Sharing could only be performed in the web browser, or in the Modern App. That was awkward. And this will be changed.

OneDrive,Share in Windows Explorer

A click with the right mouse button on a file or folder … and with the "Share a OneDrive link", a link is generated and copied to the clipboard. Then you can share this link with one or more people using  Skype, Outlook, Lnyc.
Applies to Windows 7, 8 and Mac


In a subordinate clause of the original blog post by Jason Moore he also mentions the product: OneDrive for Business. This product still is limited to 2 GB. But he noted: "We’re working on it and let you know if this restriction is lifted."
