Where are your Microsoft Teams files stored?

Microsoft teams are great at working on documents, but finding files again can be difficult. Fortunately, teams store the files in a logical structure on a dedicated SharePoint platform. So you can enter this site and find your files.

When you set up a team in Microsoft Teams, the standard channel “General” is included.

There are three standard tabs in this channel: Posts, Folders, and Wiki.

Any files you share on the Posts tabs are sent to Microsoft Teams and are available on the Files tab.

This structure is the default for any channel you create; B. This channel “Guidelines” that we added.

In addition to viewing all of the files that you’ve exchanged on the Posts tab, you can add new files, upload existing files, or drag and drop files onto the Files tab.

Behind the scenes, all of these files are stored on a dedicated team SharePoint server. Every time you create a new team, a new SharePoint site is created to store the files on.

To access this website, go to the Files tab and click the Open in SharePoint button. Depending on the size of your computer, you may need to click the three dot menu icon to access the option.

This will open the SharePoint portal that is connected to the team. (You must first sign in to SharePoint with your Microsoft account information.) You will then see the name of the team, the name of the channel, and the documents stored in that channel.

When you click the Documents option in the menu on the left, you will see all of the files in the library. There is a folder for every channel on your team.

Double click on one of the files to open it. You can add, edit, and delete documents in SharePoint just like in Microsoft Teams. Any changes you make will be synced to the Files tab in your team channel
