Pros: - For Microsoft Office users, the collaboration features make it a no-brainer pick to use. - It is the best cloud storage value for Office 365 subscribers, with 1TB space included. - Additional features are consistently added, and stability is always improving. - Straightforward backup settings (unlike competitive cloud options) so you know which files/folders are being backed up and what happens when files/folders are removed locally so you aren't constantly worrying if you're deleting all copies. - iPhone iOS app is very well integrated and full featured and works consistently. Features are consistently added to take advantage of new iPhone capabilities. - iPhone camera roll backup has been superior to the built-in iCloud Photos since you are able to delete photos from your phone after they are backed up without the backup also being deleted. - OneDrive file management from website is relatively fast and easy to use for viewing your entire library of files if you don't store them all on your local device too.

Cons: - On the Mac OneDrive app, you may get frequent backup errors due to disallowed characters or spaces in file names. Tracking them down and fixing can be frustrating and time consuming. - Confusing differences/similarities when using OneDrive and OneDrive for Business accounts on the same device. They do not function the same in how they treat and backup files. - Adding a user to shared folders can be a little confusing on the iOS app as it seems to prefer creating a public link rather than just authorizing a login. - The iPhone app and Mac OS app only support a single personal OneDrive account being used (an additional OneDrive Business account can be added, however)

Pros: The automatic integration with Windows 10 and it's bundling with MS Office subscriptions makes this a fantastic service. Additionally, it's Android App allows for easy cross-platform use. As a Windows user, OneDrive makes collaboration incredibly easy from the generation of content on a local PC to the sharing work/files/information with others.

Cons: The automatic settings of OneDrive as a built in Windows feature might be annoying for people not used to saving via the cloud. In Windows 10 it is set as the default save-to location and requires a bit of settings work to change. Additionally, I've noticed some minor issues with the responsiveness concerning sorting or renaming files within OneDrive via Windows File Explorer. File previews in OneDrive often don't display the thumbnail preview image and the file (if an image or PDF) does not display in the preview pane of File Explorer. Additionally, when renaming files, OneDrive tends to have strange timing to it's highlighting, deleting and saving of file name often times saving a rename with only one letter typed in or otherwise making renaming files from within OneDrive difficult/annoying. You can get around this by using the OneDrive App in Windows, but if you don't have administrative rights/installation abilities then you'll have to use File Explorer.

Overall: OneDrive allows substantive, real-time collaboration on work using the near universal MS office suite. It's allowed me to create both quick and effective tools for myself in Excel that I can even use on my Android phone, and allowed me to manage long-term research content.

Pros: Integration with Windows versions 8 and later provides instant simplicity with OneDrive. With Windows 10, it has become even simpler to use on PCs. The context menus allow easy changes to whether or not a file or folder is synced to the cloud, and the onedrive.live.com site is intuitive and easy to manage the content store via any browser. The ability of native applications for every reasonable platform makes this product appealing.

Cons: Microsoft can't determine what it wants to do in the consumer space, and nowhere is this more apparent than with OneDrive. Much like Skype, OneDrive has a "for business" client that bears little resemblance to the consumer application. Similarly, where Microsoft once led the field with generous storage space, their bizarre decision to revoke free storage for saving pictures and reduce the "free" amount has seriously hindered the attractiveness of OneDrive as a cloud solution. While the iOS app is delightfully easy to use, and bugs can be reported simply by shaking the app, saving files to OneDrive can be challenging, especially for novice users. Similarly, Microsoft did not make enough of an effort to distinguish OneDrive from the "for Business" product, and I know many frustrated IT managers who have countless calls from employees who have saved to the personal space instead of the enterprise version. As a final note, the lack of a plug-in for Microsoft's Edge browser is surprising, and unfortunate.

Overall: Microsoft has attempted, and largely succeeded, in building a robust cloud storage tool for consumers with OneDrive. As an IT professional, I was given 5 TB of storage "for life" for attending Microsoft's /build conference several years ago. For home users with an Office Live subscription, the 1TB of additional storage per account makes this a de facto choice. But for enterprises that don't have people who understand group policies and how to block the consumer client, coupled with the paltry free storage options compared to its competitors, OneDrive becomes a logistical nightmare as the operating systems made by Microsoft suggest (often and loudly) that users should save to OneDrive, ignoring that OneDrive for Business is installed.

Pros: You can access your files from anywhere you have access to the Internet. The latest updates allow you store all your files in the cloud while having access to them from your PC through Windows Explorer, too, allowing access to them from within every application. However, they take up no space on your hard drive until you open them--brilliant! So if you have a small SDD drive on your laptop, problems with storage space just got solved. After you've worked with the file, simply return it to the cloud and free up your hard drive space again. Need to share a file or folder with someone? That's a cinch, as you create a share link from within Windows or through the OneDrive interface on the web, choosing to allow editing or read only access, as well as whether the link should expire after a certain period of time. Sharing a link to a document means your recipient can access the latest version whenever the link is clicked. If you work on the file through Office 365, then the collaborative opportunities are opened, as you can work on a file together. OneDrive is perfectly integrated into all Office 365 apps as well as Windows 10 itself (just make sure to have the latest version of Windows installed to take advantage of OneDrive's latest innovations). One last trick OneDrive does is to preview some file types even if the associated app is not installed (browser only).

Cons: While it will back up files you explicitly place in your machine's OneDrive folder, by copying them to the cloud, it does not perform system backups. So if you want system backups to be in the cloud on OneDrive, you will need to run them with a system backup utility and then copy them to OneDrive (depending on your backup utility, you might be able to automate writing backup copy to OneDrive).

Overall: No more VPN connections to the corporate network in order to access office files on a server, as now files are in the cloud on Microsoft's servers. Using Azure AD Connect to synch usernames and passwords with the local domain, users have an SSO experience even while utilizing the full benefits of cloud-based file storage.

Pros: The functionality of accessing information via Web or desktop application locally.

The change history is registered

The teamwork collaboration that allows you to edit documents online

Make changes to the offline documentation and apply the changes when connecting to the internet

The storage capacity from the lowest plan is 1 tb to unlimited in other plans.

Microsoft increases the storage capacity in base advances the market without needing to change the subscription plan.

the ability to upload and maintain files up to 15 GB

The ease with which the structure of folders and file shares are managed can be from the root or a single file inside the folder.

To be able to share information for a determined time

that you can share information with customers or suppliers that do not have OneDrive and only need a Microsoft account to identify themselves.

To be able to share information so that the external ones can access anonymously, sharing through a link or QR code (it has disadvantages of not having tracking if it is shared in edit mode)

Levels of sharing, reading or writing.

Use a single application to manage OneDrive files and Sharepoint libraries.

A new functionality that when synchronizing the OneDrive or Sharepoint libraries the files are available locally as cache but all the information is not downloaded until you use them locally (this solves the local space issue to have the information replicated)

Facilitate teamwork is a plus in favor and very important

Cons: When several people have a local library synchronized and your Internet provider fails frequently you can make the upload synchronization be affected by duplicating the information, the good thing that a second file creates, adding at the end of it the name of the computer that you synchronize.

A Collaborator with full access on a folder or file structure eliminates the documents the owner does not know until he / she accesses, I think a notification should be sent to the owner of the documentation to approve said elimination. (Although the recycling bin lasts 30 days information it would be good to make that change to notify)

Overall: Availability of 24x7 information

Collaborate online with the information

To be able to have the information offline, apply changes and be applied to the original file after synchronization.

Increase the collaboration of work teams.

Always have the change history available to avoid loss of information.

Saving of paper printing by being able to share files to be reviewed by other people.

Share information about projects with clients without having to move them on a pendrive.

Save the capacity of the email by sending an email with only the link of the shared file or not the file. this solved us in clients and suppliers that have an email solution that only allows 5mb mail entry and when sending a file of 1 gb it does not reach them, it is solved by sending the url by mail

Pros: I have tried many different cloud storage options and OneDrive is my absolute favorite. The thing I like the most is the native integration with Windows 10 on my desktop, laptop, and Windows 10 Mobile phone. It works flawlessly and completely as expected.

I appreciate that Microsoft added back the ability to keep files only in the cloud until you use them, but still be able to see them on your desktop. The indicators are clear and easy to understand. I know if a file is on my computer and on the cloud, or just on the cloud.

Syncing times are very quick, especially with a decent internet connection. I have a super fast 300 Mbps (both up and down) connection at home, so my files are synced almost instantly. They become available on my laptop and phone within seconds.

Microsoft has added additional native functionality within File Explorer for OneDrive, so I no longer need to go online to share files with other people.

Cons: The initial setup is easy, but making changes to the software is not where it should be. I would expect the settings for OneDrive to be in Windows 10 settings, but instead, you have to click on the OneDrive cloud symbol in the tray to access the settings. Once in the settings, the wording is not easy and the controls are not laid out well. The whole settings area needs to be redone to the new Windows 10 style and updated to be easier to understand.

Overall: I keep all my important files synced across all my devices. I can access everything I want to access whether I'm at my home computer, work computer, laptop at the coffee shop, or out and about on my phone. Perfect syncing of everything all the time.

Pros: OneDrive made connecting your computer to your private cloud storage very easy, simply download and install its small client syncing application, login to your account and tell it where you would like to place the directory (folder) and anything put inside it is synced right to your cloud storage drive and you'll never have to worry about losing your data again. It's fast and very quiet when syncing even large files without noticing it at all and has some added functions where you can change settings to suit your particular needs like data saver that will only upload when connected to a steady wifi connection or automatical photo upload (mobile app) that will upload all camera photos from your mobile device right away which is very secure, private and best of all it saves you much-needed room on your mobile devices.

Cons: I feel Microsoft did great with OneDrive, especially business and enterprise-class versions leaving me with very little room for Cons. I would have to say, a better-looking user interface design that isn't the bare minimum basics box that it currently is however it works and lastly, more features that can be controlled offline in the application, better control over other connected devices and multiple directory capabilities instead of a single directory. OneDrive currently wins as my choice for office 365, business and enterprise users.

Overall: I currently have 125,200 Tb (terabytes) with Microsoft Office 365 Enterprise and it's just amazing. To grow up with mere Kb's of space and now we're getting into Pb (petabytes) it's quite amazing.

Pros: Well, I guess I've used it a lot because I am getting messages that my OneDrive account is almost full and I need to either purchase more space or get rid of some stuff. It does a good job of pulling stuff from my phone and computer and backing it up. You can create files and subfiles to organize your stuff. I have shared large files with people remotely that were too large to attach to an email document and there are security features to make sure only the person you want accessing it has access to it. I've really had no issues with it at all other than forgetting my password at one point years ago and it was a bit of a hassle getting that back. but I've been able to save things from old hard drives, such as music, purchased installation files, of course photos and documents, etc. with no problem. Until now. I have no idea what it costs to add storage space and probably my OneDrive just needs a good spring cleaning, so it's definitely an app I'll stick with. Works well with Windows 10 and you can access those files by clicking in your file directory rather than having to get online and go to a separate Cloud space and log in to access anything you have with another company. Other than the headache of forgetting my password that one time, it has worked great for me, and it's free and really does offer a pretty generous amount of room to save your stuff. I've never heard of any security breaches or issues with it at all. If you're looking for a way to keep your stuff backed up and on the Cloud, it's a good way to go.

Cons: The user interface does seem a little bit scaled down and simplistic, with not an overwhelming number of options, but then I don't really need a lot of options for what is basically an electronic storage unit. There was some hassle with forgetting my password a few years ago that was not easy to fix, but ultimately, it was. That's pretty much the only issue I've had except that I've apparently nearly filled my allotted capacity to the max and need to either clean out or upgrade to more storage. The reminder of that sliding onto my screen every time I log into my laptop is annoying, but I do see the necessity of it.

OneDrive provides seamless cloud storage baked right in to Windows 10.

Pros: OneDrive is cloud storage at its finest. Invisible, light, automatic. Whenever we create documents in the office, we know they are all backed up. Any time we create new media, organizing it for active and archival storage is simultaneous and uncomplicated. Just as arrange and organize files in File Explorer, OneDrive runs behind you making all the changes in the Cloud, making sure everything is up to date with the latest revisions.

But not only is OneDrive always working, but it's invisible. Unless you need it, OneDrive doesn't interrupt work. This is a game changer compared to other cloud storage platforms. Productivity remains high, with the confidence that everything is working.

Additionally, OneDrive is very light on the CPU. Even in the midst of large file syncs, we never have issues with performance bottlenecks.

Finally, OneDrive is an incredible value. Build right into the fee of Microsoft Office 365 is 1Tb of storage per account. This is more than enough for active cloud storage, and provides plenty of headroom for local and offsite archival sync scheduling.

OneDrive greatly improves team and organizational file and content management through superior and seamless user experience.

Cons: The customer support for OneDrive is adequate, but we have had a few unresolved issues that were disappointing. For example, OneDrive originally granted users unlimited storage, but Microsoft later revised this cap down to 1TB per account. While this is still sufficient for our current needs, not having to worry about storage limits was a nice comfort of the service. Also, OneDrive can, on occasion, have issues with file previewing with various types of media files. Lastly, OneDrive is most useful with Microsoft ecosystems. Other platforms may not be as smooth in user experience.

Overall: OneDrive provides large amounts of seamless, continuous cloud storage at a tremendous value. The integration OneDrive directly into Windows 10 and Microsoft Office make using the software easy and automatic.

Pros: OneDrive is great, in general, for backing up my files and having copies in different places. I like, for example, that I can set it up so that all of my files in the cloud on my OneDrive are also downloaded locally onto my desktop and onto my laptop, so that I have at least two local copies in addition to my cloud copies. For me this is useful in the off chance that my cloud OneDrive got hacked into and changed or files deleted - I would then still have my local copies of documents, and if I am careful about it I could keep either my laptop or PC from connecting to the internet temporarily so that I could move files around and get all my files back onto my cloud OneDrive. I like that my files can automatically save as I am working on them, and it will be saving the newest version into OneDrive, and that I can turn this feature off for documents which I want to work on but not save the changes automatically.

Cons: I have both a personal and a work OneDrive account, and it is sometimes very difficult to figure out how to get both versions linked to from my PC and laptop, at times this has taken me hours to try to get set up correctly. Presently it appears to be working correctly. There have also been, at least once or twice, incidents where OneDrive had stopped downloading local copies of my files, and I hadn't realized it initially, and so had to finagle to set it up to download the files to my PC and laptop again. I am not sure why it stopped downloading the files - it seems to be working properly for many months now.

Overall: Generally it has been a very good experience using OneDrive.

Pros: Microsoft One Drive, is a very useful online application for saving our files in the cloud, it is a tool that you can easily use from a computer, tablet or mobile, that means you will always have access to your files wherever you are, this is an advantage of this application. You can make backup copies of your files that are stored on your mobile. It is a robust tool that allows us to manage and organize our files by folder to locate them easily. In general it is a very useful tool for any user because the concentration of the data is in the cloud, this reduces or decreases the storage requirements of our computer, tablet or mobile.

Cons: What can be said about this application is that it should improve a bit in the security of the data, as well as being an application in the cloud and our files are located in remote servers it is important the privacy of the data is for them You must constantly implement security rules of entry, Also to be in line with the application, if you do not have an Internet connection you can not enter, but the minor details are this kind of problems.

Overall: It is a very useful and easy to use application for any user, you only need a computer, tablet or mobile and internet to connect to Microsoft One Drive. It is important to point out that when uploading your files to the cloud our devices will be more liberated in terms of storage space. In this application you can organize and manage our data in an organized way by folders for easy file localization. In general it is a robust tool.

Pros: It is a great platform created by Microsoft, which allows you to keep your information stored in the cloud to access it quickly and efficiently from any part or device.

You can synchronize your data, photos, images, places and documents with just one synchronization or accessing your account from the internet.

It is easy to use and very practical to organize your content folders, only when you register you already have 15 GB of free storage, which you can use in the way you want as it has no limitations, if you have Office 365 account you can access to have Up to 1 Tb of storage in the cloud.

It adapts to any area, be it personal, professional, commercial or educational, thus giving great experiences allowing to send a link to share some specific information.

If you already have a Hotmail or Outlook account, it allows you to access your OneDrive container without any problem since they belong to the same Microsoft system.

The design of access and how can create folders, containers, host existing information is quite user friendly.

Cons: I really do not see any negative aspects for this application except that one of its big sales is also a disadvantage because it always depends on an internet connection.

If you upload the information from your device you can leave it on hold and when you have internet it will synchronize it automatically.

Overall: For me it is simply an excellent tool, with which I can organize both my personal and professional documentation and be able to access from my home the necessary information without relying on a physical device or usb.

Pros: I really like OneDrive. One of the reasons I like it so much is that when I logged on for the first time, I was immediately directed to a section filled with video clips which ran me through some very simple, yet helpful tutorials. I rarely look at tutorials in general, but these ones were quick, easy to follow and really helped.

I'm decent with computers. I'm not a programmer or Super-Millennial by any means. I like simple. OneDrive stores, shares and syncs all my documents, files and photos in one easy interface. I don't need 20 trillion terabits of storage. I just need enough; a good amount so I can rely on OneDrive fully for all my storage requirements. I like to travel and I have a ton of photos more than anything else.

OneDrive makes sharing a breeze. Collaboration on projects and documents even easier. I know this won't make the sales department jump for joy, but unlike most of OneDrive's competitors, unless you are storing massive documents or billions of photos, the free version is all you'll need. What a breath of fresh air. OneDrive is the only drive I'll ever need.

Cons: I have some mild issues with how Microsoft forcefully integrates all of your business but I have absolutely no issues with OneDrive at all. It's really a great piece of software.

Overall: I use OneDrive for personal use. It is a great solution for the basic to advanced user. Bravo!

Pros: I primarily use OneDrive academically and for work. I find it to be reliable and very useful to edit documents online. It is convenient to access documents I have typed on my personal computer and then being able to open them up on another one whether it be a work desktop or at a library. I also enjoy being able to access OneDrive through the email service, Outlook, as when I use OneDrive I am usually using it to send a file or open a file from work. I highly recommend OneDrive especially if you need to constantly access files that are shared with you. Additionally, it is nice that photos can also be stored on OneDrive because on the rare occasion I want to share a photo with a family member, I can pull it up regardless of the computer I am on. I also appreciated how I was notified of how much storage I had left, so I could save only the most essential documents on OneDrive.

Cons: I have the free version of OneDrive and am limited to 5 GB of storage. Initially, when I first started using this it seemed like it was more than enough, but it quickly gets used up. However, there are premium options you can buy that give you more storage. It would be nice if storage options were more prevalent so I know what is available to me. It would also be nice if more storage was provided as I feel limited and use other cloud drives to carry out my work.

Pros: Remote storage of documents removes the need to keep an in-house data backup system. Multiple users can access/edit the same document simultaneously (no more "this document is locked for editing by xxxx" messages). Documents can be accessed by any device with a browser, you do NOT need to have office suite (Word, Excel, etc.) installed on the device you are using.

Cons: This software needs to be supported by robust/continual training. There is a learning curve when it is first given to staff. One of the flaws with having remote storage in OneDrive is that you (the company tech support/admin) can't go into OneDrive and recover accidentally deleted documents. Put another way - OneDrive grants individual users share/access permissions for their documents, which means staff are now responsible for keeping the current version of a document, not deleting (!) the source document the entire team is working on, etc. Another problem we encountered was that staff were saving private/PII information in OneDrive, which means that information is being stored off-site, which raises privacy/legal concerns.

Overall: Enterprise scale public sector organization with 30,000 employees spread over 100+ facilities. Most users never used OneDrive for more than the occasional use. Vast majority of documents still stored/accessed on our in-house servers. Heavy OneDrive users ran into problems sooner or later with a team member accidentally deleting the wrong file, stopping "share" permissions for other team members, etc.

Summary: an excellent tool *IF* staff are routinely trained on how to operate it.

Pros: What I like in OneDrive Is that you can easily access and view your saved files even if you are offline just by simply going to your computer files when using a PC. We all use Microsoft Office Applications especially at work where we need to submit reports and proposals. You can choose to save these files and documents to your OneDrive and easily share them to others by adding their email or creating a link. We also used OneDrive to collaborate at work such as access to reports and sheets that permitted users can edit and update daily. This enables our Manager to regularly track metrics and progress in just one click instead of receiving files one by one through email. With OneDrive in your PC, you can simply add files by using drag and drop, quick and easy instead on doing it in websites where uploading can take longer.

Cons: This is convenient and ideal for those who use Outlook.com for their work emails. Signing up should only be either through an outlook account or Microsoft office account. It's also best if you use Microsoft office for all your devices. However, some devices like android phones and tablets use google applications synced on all their devices. This has a larger percentage of users compared to mobile phones that have Microsoft Office as their default phone setup.

Pros: OneDrive is a cloud based storage platform, which any authorized user can gain its access anytime, anywhere, around the clock. It is a secure tool, where no one with malicious intent can gain the access. Again, it has a friendly user interface, where the user can customize it to fit his or her needs. The support team for OneDrive are always available, and ready to assist their customers. In fact, they take too little time to respond to any query. Lastly, it support the process of sharing of files from one place to the other. Unlike other products, OneDrive is an easy to scale and manage tool, and this limits the time that a user spend before getting astored file.

Cons: However, OneDrive is an expensive tool, where getting a premium product costs more money. In fact, it is like all the Microsoft products are expensive, but OneDrive is far much compared to other competitors. I could request the vendor to lower down this price to make it affordable for all the people or organizations which may need it.

Overall: In general, OneDrive solves all the storage problems that firms or organizations face. Again, it is an easy to implement and use product, and this reduces the entire time spent before its use. It has a user friendly design and interface, and this improves the morale of the customer. In case of any question, the support team are always there to assist. I love OneDrive.

Pros: It a very better choice that you can get in because you can access the one Drive from any place, so can be saved more than a thousand images, many videos, private documents and many more, if you work with Microsoft 365 you can easily access with one drive so that things will be very easy, and less time consuming you can get better output as you wish.

You can share data within less time each other ,also there are more free space to store different kind of file types,and for an exampple if your hard drive is full you can upload some important files to the one drive and make more space in hard drive so that your space problem and slowdown pc problems will be slloved dut to that oone drive,So that One drive is the Best one for the All of works and it will make us happy.

Cons: One Drive gives me the Better experience to the user there are just only a few cons to the mention. thing is the user interface is not good for beginners who are involved to use that product and also customer support is not good enough.Otherwise functionalitys are run smoothly with combing other microsoft product better

Overall: Overall It's better cloud-based Storage devise to work with and it has the better Security system to protect personal informatiion,accessibility is pretty good ,it will be the Best choise who are working with enterprice works

Pros: I really like that it is simple and easy to use software. I have tried it with several mobile applications on my iOS, specifically with Documents and it integrates very well. I can get the documents I need, copy them or move them according to my need, without problems. It also happens with the folder that the application opens on my Mac OSX machine, it is synchronized without problems and quickly. The desktop application is very simple and opens quickly, I've also noticed that it synchronizes easily and in a friendly way, because it integrates with the operating system. I like that it has an indicator next to each file and folder, since it allows me to see what is the state of the file that I am using, that is, if it is synchronized or not. The preferences of the desktop application allow me to see, what is occupied in the cloud of the total space I have.

Cons: I do not like the amount of space available in the free option, it should be greater. Additionally, I do not like that the indication of space available and used, is displayed in the preferences of the desktop application in Mac OSX. It should incorporate a way to handle private folders locally, perhaps through a password. Must be integrated with more mobile applications, so that it is easier to share content.

Pros: After using the software for a while, I can say that I do really like OneDrive. Uploading files is very simple and straightforward. It's great for the field of work I am in since we're constantly sharing information and documents with others in our department. I also haven't run out of space and I probably add new documents every day, so that is a major plus. I also love that I can access it anywhere, this has come in handy many times when I haven't had my work laptop handy.

Cons: As I said above, I do really like this software. However, that is after using it for a long time. I primarily use OneDrive to share documents with others and it took me quite a while to figure out the best way to do so. I like that I can change permissions on the document given who I am sending to, but depending on who that is they might not be able to access it. The biggest problem that I have run into using the product is that it's not easily accessible to others. For example, if I share a OneDrive document with someone who does not have a gmail, they might not be able to access it unless I give them the right permission. This meant that there was a lot of trial and error when I first began to use it.

Overall: Overall, I do think that OneDrive is a decent product for your money. It took some time for me to learn how to properly use it, but I have noticed I still have issues sharing documents with certain people. It seems silly that you can change the permissions for different people, but not have it actually work when you need it to.

Pros: Much like Google Drive or or other storage software in the Cloud, OneDrive offers a great way for personal and professional file storage. You are given your first 5 GB free, which for most is a great way to store personal documents, photos, etc. and offers ample space to do so. Files are stored securely and the ease of use of this software is particularly good. For businesses, the increased space prices are pretty reasonable for what they offer (which at this point is 50 TB!). If you are doing any type of Cloud based storage, this is a serious program to consider using!

Cons: The horror....the horror!!! Seriously, the only real downfall to this software is the notification explosion you are subjected to once your OneDrive is set up. You will literally be inundated with message after message reminding you to check your space availability, even if you have a single tiny file in your Drive. Do yourself a favor and make sure you change notification settings the minute you download this program, and you should be fine.

Overall: Storage, storage, storage! The greatest benefit to using OneDrive is the space you receive! You are provided with piece of mind that you have a back-up for all your files, whether they are personal or business related. And really, who are we kidding in this day and age? Everybody needs some piece of mind!

Pros: I use OneDrive on a daily basis. I store all my important documents and photos in my OneDrive folder for multiple reasons. For starters, if I were to break or lose my work laptop, I would be able to recover ALL my files that were saved in the folder, I don't even need the same computer to access them. I can simply login to my OneDrive account and bang--access my files. On that same note, let's say I'm out of office with a client and need to access a file that I forgot to bring to the meeting; all I have to do is login to my OneDrive from ANY computer and volia, my files are immediately available to download. It has become so important for me that I use my OneDrive as my default folder for anything I'm saving now. It's so incredibly amazing...I wish this existed 10 year ago when I was in school.

Cons: Honestly nothing. There is absolutely no cons that I can think of regarding OneDrive.... if you're on the fence about using it, then you're crazy. Just do it! Even the "free" version is EXCELLENT!

Overall: Security. I get an unbelievable amount of security when I use my OneDrive. Just knowing that my files are safe and available anywhere in the world on ANY device... wow, just wow. I even have the OneDrive app on my phone, so I can literally access my files on-the-go now.

11/10... lol. Seriously that good.

Pros: My favorite feature of OneDrive is it's integration into Windows 10. The fact that all of my files stored on OneDrive are sitting in my Windows file explorer like my other files is very convenient and makes it easy to browse and organize all of my OneDrive uploaded files. I also like the "right click" context menu access for sharing files from OneDrive with other people in your organization. Right clicking a file will and choosing "Share" brings up a dialog box to share the file through email or generate a link to the file. You can choose whether the user will have read or read/write access from here also.

Cons: There is no option, that I know of, to only have a link to your files in Windows File Explorer. The files that are in Windows file explorer from OneDrive take up space on your hard drive. I would like a way for OneDrive to show only links to files you specify (i.e. very large files) instead of having the actual full file being stored locally on your computer. This would help with hard drive space on your computer.

Overall: I am able to store all of my important work-related files in a secure cloud space and access them anytime I need them on my PC. I am also able to easily share these files to other users in my organization and allow them to either view or edit them for better collaboration.

Simple, straight-forward and easy to use.

Pros: Easy to share files within the Office365 universe, and outside of it through simple interface sharing options

Thick Sync client is ideal for persons who want to sync files from their cloud OneDrive space with the utmost of ease. Drag-and-drop files into OneDrive share, it's as easy as it gets.

Mac OSX and Windows sync client supported. A big plus for our organization, who supports both OS platforms.

Most Office365 applications store their data in a user's OneDrive space, which makes it straight-forward for administrators to ensure user data is preserved should disruptions in service occur.

OneDrive has been very reliable over the 3+ years we have been providing it as a service to our 40,000+ customers.

Cons: Online OneDrive user interface is very basic, and a bit clunky when trying manage many files at once (example: moving/renaming/organizing files). Batch item management is a bit lacking in the online interface.

A major OneDrive Online interface change made managing a user's storage space confusing for many users. Mainly because not all features previously available were completed in the new interface when they launched it. This caused some consternation

Wishlist for OneDrive: Provide native file encryption on all files.

Pros: The ease of which I was able to organize my documents was surprising.

Outside apps can access media stored on OneDrive making it my personal on the go library bank for audiobooks, music, and personal documents.

Best of all is the security. If there is any part of my library I want to share with someone I can do so by selecting a particular file or folder to share and this does not grant access to anything else stored online.

The price of the storage space is essentially included when you get the Microsoft office bundle.

Price of additional storage space is very inexpensive.

Auto Sync of changed documents and added files is a great feature!

Cons: Upload speeds vary. Even on a fast connection I prefer to set anything I want to sync to do so overnight while I sleep.

Also, while media sharing if various parties choose to stream rather than download then the platform becomes intermittantly sluggish for all parties involved.

The search function has a little difficulty finding files at times.

Overall: The overall experience with OneDrive was great. I use it nearly every day for personal use with both streaming and downloading music and audiobooks.

Document and file sharing is easy and convenient. Definitely better than other platforms I have used such as dropbox because of the amount of space available

Pros: OneDrive by Microsoft is the one of the best solution for object storage. It provides the cross-platform support & availability. Web/Window/Mobile synchronization is also excellent. Best part of OneDrive is that you do not have to mess up with your own devices syncing manually as auto-synchronization feature will handle it for you. Any modification in your account storage will provide notification so that you don't miss any important update about your account. A single file upload limit is set to 15 Gb which is more then enough. Setting access permission and sharing link to recipient so that they can access the allocated folder or file. All the three platform provide a user friendly interface for interaction.

Cons: Access permission console have a lot of option, some time people end up with messing it. Microsoft should work on to simply the permission console and also provide the best and secure suggestion. As this is a Internet based service so you always need a good speed connection to get availability for 24 x 7 x 365.

Linux/Unix based synchronization is also missing. Link should also come up with the validity and pin protection.

Overall: I am using One Drive from last few years and it's helping me to manage the files in secure way. It also provide the cross platform support So I don't have to manage or take worry to manage my secure keys & digital certificate from different platform. It is really helping in our business and making our life simple.

Pros: On more than one occasion, One Drive has saved my a**/made life a lot easier/saved me money so I would be very lost without it. There are those who think that One Drive is little more than Microsoft's version of Google Docs - in that it just stores docs etc in the cloud - but the simple fact is it offers so much more.

Need to get a file onto multiple PCs /device quickly and efficiently? Done

Need to sync content from one device to another (and not just your devices, other people's as well)? Done

Need to sync photos, videos and more? Done

And it's a true lifesaver when it comes to those all-important backups.

Cons: Paying for the extra storage I need. But that's OK really, it's money well spent and in fact, I spend around the same for the Google Docs storage I need to maintain for some clients so it's simply an expense to be borne.

Overall: One Drive not only allows me to work across multiple devices of my own but also to quickly transfer content to others, and for them to do the same for me. For example, for several clients I work within the social media space I run their Instagram, but I need photo input from them. One Drive allows them to send photos from their devices directly to my One Drive, where I can immediately access them to create posts, creating a hugely efficient process.

Pros: I have been using OneDrive for the past 8+ years. It evolved greatly over to the initial launch. The main advantages with OneDrive are:

>> Multi platform usage - Windows and Mac on desktop, android/iOS on mobile are supported with full feature support. I keep my study materials in OneDrive and access across mobile, tablet and laptop.

>> Storage plans - In the early days, Microsoft provided 20GB of free storage to all and bonus of 20GB if photo backup is enabled on mobile. This is the highest free storage plans compared to Google and Apple.

>> Integration with other Microsoft products - While using Office Lens on android, by default the images get scanned into OneDrive; which is neat, avoid hassle of manual upload. Also all the OneNote docs are stored in OneDrive by default for easy access.

Cons: >>Often I experience issues with file syncing on Mac OS.

>>Missing integration with Windows mail, ability to store big attachments to OneDrive directly unlike Google.

Overall: Great cloud storage across Windows and Mac OS which are the prominent desktop OS used in most of the corporate offices. Sharing project files across the teams is easier than before with the OneDrive. Also the 1TB storage for business users is ample enough.

Pros: The latest version of one drive has improved a lot and keeps all my files synchronized across multiple devices and mobile phones. Our institution has an Office 365 subscription so we get 1TB of storage which has greatly simplified file transfers for projects and educational presentations. Maintaining permissions for many people for network drives within our institution was alway problematic and Onedrive solved all those problems.

Also, the ability to choose to store files "just" on the cloud without a local copy is great and frees up space on mobile computers with smaller HDDs.

Cons: While some may consider a "feature" the default action when clicking a file in the browser is to open it in an online office 365 app. This is a bit frustrating until you get used to it. If you have the desktop app installed One Drive works like a standard folder on your hardrive and circumvents the above problem. Also, when you download multiple files it doesn't give you the option of not zipping the files together. A zipped download is great when you have 5 or more files downloading but it is a totally unnecessary step when you need to download just two.

Pros: The best feature of OneDrive is the ease of use across multiple platforms. I have accessed and edited documents on my phone if my laptop is not available. I have also moved to a different work station and been able to pick right up where I left off on my other computer. It's a perfect solution for flexible work locations.

There are several attorneys in my office and we must be able to share documents to be an effective team. OneDrive gives us access to the latest version of any document.

Cons: The file view choices are lacking an 'all' choice. Not being able to see files that have been shared with me among my own files has caused some duplication of files. I then discovered that without an 'all' view, it is not always easy to move files from one file to another when you can't get them all on the same screen. It takes opening an extra window or downloaded and then uploading to the shared file that you didn't know someone else created because you have to go for the files that have been shared with you. They need to be on the same screen among the files I created.

Overall: Ease of use across platforms. Sharing capabilities. Effective collaboration platform.

Pros: I love OneDrive because everything I need can be quickly accessed. There are so many unique capabilities. I enjoy being able to navigate easily through OneDrive. I use every application on the top left side of OneDrive frequently. (The left hand upper corner has every Microsoft application option you can get to quickly) I use every application in this option area (mail, calendar, connect with people, task area, and Word) I also like how as a business woman I can put my files into OneDrive and organize them effectively. I can share files and download my files easily into my OneDrive. I can also organize my files in the different ways I want them to be organized.

Cons: The only thing that I don't like or I dislike about OneDrive is the folder display. I would love more variety of options. (Like different folder colors or different fonts) I know it may seem simple, but it would be pretty cool to have that option. It doesn't really look very appealing. The folders to store the files in looks a bit rushed. I would love more of a smoother appeal.

Overall: My overall experience with OneDrive has been great. I am not the only one who has OneDrive. Many people I know use it and it's helping them as well. OneDrive is helping all sorts of people in loads of different unique occupations. OneDrive has made my life easier in so many ways.

Comments: We use OneDrive on all our machines in the offices. It comes with our Office365 subscription and gives 1TB of storage to each user, If you are used to DropBox or some other cloud sharing service then you will know exactly how this works. The excellent part about OneDrive is the integration with Office. When saving a document simply chose your OneDrive Business or OneDrive personal location and its that easy. If you need to save files to the cloud for backup or retrieval from another device then copy files into the OneDrive folder.

Pros: Very simple to use, simply copy your files in the folder and they sync. Integrated directly into office which is great as you can save files directly to the OneDrive folder instantly. Allows for use of your OneDrive business and OneDrive personal if you have it and it sees them as completely seperate.

Cons: You need to have a decent link to the internet for larger files. Sometimes if your link is busy accessing the OneDrive folder to save directly from within an Office app has that horrible wait period where you are not sure if it is hanging or just about to time out before it eventually shows the online folders.

Recommendations to other buyers: There is not much to consider if you use Office then you should be using OneDrive. If you are invested in DropBox or some other cloud space system then i would not make the move unless you subscribe to Offie365. (1TB space included is great) If you do subscribe to Offcice365 then not making use of the included OneDrive option is, well not wise.

Pros: Overall OneDrive is nice. It does what it's supposed to do. Usually. The consensus I've heard, which certainly matches my experience, is that personal OneDrive is built on a framework very similar to other products such as DropBox. It works well and it's stable.

OneDrive for Business is a completely different story. Oh sure, it looks like personal OneDrive, but under the hood it's very, very different. You see, OneDrive For Business is actually built on Sharepoint. Which is kinda scary if you know the history of Sharepoint. The real problem was that when we tried to implement it even in a limited testing environment it broke constantly. Files with any special character in the filename wouldn't sync, and even once we renamed all the files to make OneDrive happy it would still break. And when you would "fix" OneDrive, it would basically just abandon the old OneDrive instance completely and create a whole new share and reset everything from scratch leaving all the old broken sync data. Think of it like just appending .bak to the old folder and then leaving it there, cluttering up your file system and wasting your storage. Not cool.

Overall I gave OD 4 stars for quality because the person version is 5 star and the business version can't rate higher than 3 stars at best. So I average them out.

Cons: Kind of like I mentioned in the Pros section - that the personal version is great and the business version, at least in my experience

Pros: Pre Installed on the PC! Whats great about this software is that you don't need to download anything, it comes pre installed with a copy of windows. Your one drive is usually linked to the Microsoft account that you used to sign into the pc.

High Transfer Speed! There seems to be no problems in migrating files via upload or download when using the software, it basically functions as a simple folder on the desktop.

Very user friendly! No fancy passwords, no ports or IP address necessary just simply drag and drop items that you want into the folder and they are uploaded to the cloud. This software is also very well integrated with the Microsoft office suite where users can opt to chose whether they would like files saved to the hard drive or the Onedrive.

Cons: Limited storage for free version ! The free version only comes with 15GB, this sounds like alot but after a few pictures and/or videos it tends to fill up quickly.

Advanced functions such as Synching with Google drive or other cloud based platforms are not easily accessible.

Overall: Organizational tool handy for academic environments

Pros: This is a cool program for people who prefer, or are more accustomed to using, Microsoft programs. I can access files anywhere and the storage space is huge, bigger than most of its competition, including Google Drive. Another advantage to using OneDrive is that it integrates seamlessly with all Microsoft products like the OfficeSuite, Outlook, etc. Plus it's easy to setup and has real basic functionality, which makes it a readymade program in seconds for people who prefer Microsoft programs.

Cons: I find that many members of my team were reluctant to use OneDrive simply out of preference for other cloud-based storage programs like Google Drive, DropBox, etc. The other issue is that OneDrive tends to slow down my PC to a halt when I sync files and folders.

Overall: Overall I loved the program for several reasons. Huge storage space, easily accessible files, usable across multiple devices, and it makes collaboration easy. This has several benefits, such as reducing the need to email files all the time, and having several versions of the same files, etc. Best of all, it was free with the purchase of PC. But generally speaking, the paid version is relatively cheap compared to its competitors.

Pros: It is very easy to use and setup, giving you the chance to use it almost effortlessly to store any files you wish. It makes a folder on your computer and then can sync up everything you add to it to a Cloud, so that if the computer is damaged you will not lose any of the files stored there. I personally also use it as my default way for saving screenshots, and it allows me to easily find them by the date in which I took them, which has been really helpful for some of my business needs.

The 5.0 GB of free cloud space have so far been enough for me, but it can be expanded for people who find it necessary to do so, which is a very good option to have. You can also access the files through a cellphone app, so that you can access the Cloud while on the go, allowing you to rapidly send files to clients or colleagues even without access to the computer, so long as all the files have been properly synched beforehand.

Cons: It can be a bit invasive at times, wanting to be used for any storage need, and requesting to make folders for photos from cameras and such as a first option, but this can be shut off if necessary, so it is not a big deal for me. So far, I have very few complaints at all.

Overall: It helps me mostly with storing important documents and information, and it has been a huge help with keeping tab on important screenshots. I also relax a bit more knowing that my important documents are safely stored in the cloud, just in case anything should happen to my hard drive.

Pros: The version integrated with Windows 10 is robust and powerful, with new features added to improve integration with the cloud. For example, you can synchronise a SharePoint document site, or a file share from your personal or business OneDrive storage. There is now an "On-Demand" feature so it will leave your files in the cloud until you try to open them. This allows for sharing of large document stores, without having to download the lot to your machine in the first instance. There are icons against folders and files to show you their synchronisation status. You can also use it for your Documents and other "Local" folders so that they are stored in the cloud and synchronised across multiple devices.

Cons: In trying to keep it simple for the user, some of the more advanced uses are hidden in the settings. However this is improving all the time.

Overall: Great for keeping work and personal files accessible everywhere, while also keeping them separate. For small businesses wanting to offload files to the cloud it makes for a great solution. Can also be used to make cloud resources available locally to the users.

I use One Drive to store, sync, access, and share all my digital work files.

Pros: I appreciate the seamless sinking of files across all devices including my work computer, home computer and network, and personal phones and devices. This makes it very easy to access documents most anywhere with great ease. I also very much like that it has ongoing saving features. If you ever forget to actively save something you are rest assured that it has been automatically saved in multiple locations.

Cons: The odd time there are conflicts between different copies of a document. For example, the other day I began editing a Word document on one computer and had left it open. When I edited it on another computer there seems to be a conflict and the separate but different edits showed up on both documents. Although this is a rare occurrence.

Overall: The benefits I get from this product are that my files are available wherever I need them to be at on my home computer, work computer, personal device, or various other work devices. I can easily and seamlessly share, edit, save, or access documents in almost any format or work site. I also greatly appreciate the ongoing saving properties of it as it is near impossible for me to lose a document or work that I have accomplished using it.

Pros: There is no tension of losing data until I have started using OneDrive. It is a safe pocket where we can save different kinds of stuff and have access anywhere and anytime. It has really advance cloud for keeping our data protected. OneDrive provides an advance cloud based space that keeps our important data secure under its nicely developed protection. The most interesting feature is that it lets us share files in easy and quick ways. What I would like to say in the end is, there is no match of OneDrive available in the market.

Cons: OneDrive does not give any ways of finding complaints because of it's being the most effective application but one of the minor issue I have to go through from its slow sync system. Some of the times it makes me worried and takes too long for uploading data on cloud storage. I have just that problem and hope hopefully will get a quick response from its team.

Overall: According to my experience it is a great product. If I have to talk about the business benefits they will be countless because what I consider about this application. It is the best platform for keeping the data secure and safe.

Pros: It is well known that Microsoft brings powerful products for It's users. OneDrive is of the great products of Microsoft that I use. It has a protected cloud system that keeps our data under its protection. I like to use this drive for keeping my personal and business related important data. It is a great fully featured application that got easy to use functionality. One most interesting feature that I like most, It's automatically sync system that uploads our data automatically in its cloud storage and it is very fast.

Cons: OneDrive is working perfectly. There is no con but one thing that happens some of the times. I select some data and try to keep it in cloud when it does not give right response and starts sync after some hours. That really looks different like I have given the order for uploading some files and it is not working for that needs little improvements.

Overall: It is really great to share my personal views on OneDrive. It is not only helpful for business use but also for personal use. From the day I started using this I did not have to worry about my important data because it provides great standard services.

Pros: I am using OneDrive by Microsoft as my primary software for cloud storage and for accessing my important information remotely without storing and carrying it with me all the time.

Best thing about this software is that it is available on all platforms including android and ios.

I am using this as android app on all my android devices.

Another thing is that I can backup my data from various other apps on OneDrive using scheduled and manual backup so no need of physical storage.

You can also purchase their storage plans as per your cloud storage needs and that too from various options based on your budget.

Cons: One of the not so best feature of the OneDrive for me is its requirements of need to remember the login credentials. I am not able to store my log in credentials so I need to add the credentials every time I need to access the information.

Overall: This is the service by Microsoft that I use as my primary source of cloud storage and backup my critical information and access anywhere and on any device using secure login credentials. Definitely one of the best service for cloud storage and backup needs.

Pros: I appreciate the ability to put a file, take a picture, or download a PDF, and have access to your files from any of your devices. Instead of having to load something on a flash drive, email yourself or connect to the device on which you need the file, OneDrive automatically uploads and makes it available no matter which device you are on. I use it for the profile pictures I take in my office for my Electronic Health Record software. I can snap a picture with my Surface and then later use my main computer and I am able to pull up the patient picture using my OneDrive.

Cons: The only issue that I have had is some long upload times. I have a feeling that this may be due to my specific device though and not OneDrive itself. It only happens sporadically and does not seem to negatively impact my workflow for the most part.

Overall: OneDrive allows me to have files or documents at work and then to go home and also have access if I need them. I use it to access patient photos on my main computer after taking a picture with a different device. OneDrive definitely saves me time by doing all of the work behind the scenes.

Pros: This is one of the best product Microsoft has ever developed. I use the tool in storing all my personal and official files on daily basis. It is one of the most secure cloud storage tool as I have never lost any file or being exposed to unauthorized users. This product allows me to store my files in one place and i can access them using either my computer, android or any gadget that can access the internet. The tool has great features that allows me to share my official files with my workmates with just a click of a button. I like how OneDrive integrates easily with other Microsoft products making my official duty simple while am in the office.

Cons: Sometimes, i find it difficult to do some settings changes to my initial setup of OneDrive. The language used in the settings of the product seems complex to me. I wish the developers can use a simple language for everyone to understand easily.

Overall: OneDrive has been helping our company in storing all of our official files securely. Initially, we used to keep them in the office cabinets where they were exposed to rats and could be accessible by everyone who may not have a permission to view them. I like the fact that this product allows me to synchronize my saved files to all my gadgets helping me to access them at anytime at any given place.

Pros: This is really easy to use and you can even have a windows file explorer version making it even better. Moving files in the windows file explorer version is really efficient. The structure is solid and very reliable, keeping my files safe and accessible. They even have an offline version which doesn't clog your hard drive. The storage limits are very generous but beware. They often give you high limits and when you are over them, they reduce the limit so that they can charge you a fee.

Cons: Moving files in this product is awkward and time-consuming. You pretty much have to use the Windows file explorer version to make it viable in a business setting. The storage limits are very generous but beware. They often give you high limits and when you are over them, they reduce the limit so that they can charge you a fee. This really turns me off of an otherwise awesome free product.

Overall: This is the best free storage by far and thank you Google for giving us the use of it. I am able to keep all of my documents in one place and organised without too much trouble. No more failing hard drives losing all of my documents.

Pros: I really like this tool, it is very practical it is always important to carry the information with us at all times and that way easier than with the Office 365 account, our email

It has a large storage space, plus it allows us to zoom in different formats and diverse types of information, for example images, music, excel documents, word, is really very effective.

It is only necessary to have our computer, an intelifente telephone with internet access, whether it be Android or IOS

Something really good that allows you to create backup copies and thus our information is never in danger

Cons: I consider that there are really many good factors, in terms of the negative I think that sometimes the speed with which OneDrive works is not usually the fastest, but it is something that one usually understands can pass because it really is good. And also a small negative factor has been that sometimes to expand the storage must pay a high cost

Overall: My experience has been the maximum, I believe that since I have my important information at hand at any time everything has been easier, I love being able to store what I want and that if at some point outside the house I need only access to my laptop or my phone and there I will be able to see what I want either personal or professional

Overall, it does what it claims to do-stores your docs in the cloud and allows retrieval anywhere.

Pros: The ability to write and upload docs on the fly is a fantastic ability. As linked to the word processing, spreadsheet, and other software, it allows me to create and save nearly instantaneously. If I need to share with colleagues, I can do so via several methods. Storage can be a problem if you are high volume, but for the average user, this works quite well.

For me, since I am a laptop or tablet only user, I have to take into consideration that hard drives can self-destruct without warning. Using OneDrive eliminates the worry of what happens to my work if-heaven forbid-my hardware should malfunction or be otherwise compromised. All I need is new hardware, a password, and I'm back in business.

Cons: It will occaisionally lock up on the upload and cite password/account problems-when I haven't changed anything. I am unclear as to exactly the cause for the difficulty, but resetting the password fixes the problem-with some colorful language thrown in for good measure. It's not a deal breaker-just a handful of sand in the swimsuit sort of thing.

Pros: Where to start... so many incredible pro's to Onedrive: the applications are incredible (iOS) for editing, viewing, and quickly sharing links and files, the desktop application is blazing fast and works incredibly well with all of the Microsoft programs, and probably my favorite is the features and ability to share large files, folders, and folder structures with people outside of my organization. The ability to share and set permissions for editing, view only, and allow upload is extremely convenient and works very well. Any change made on your account is then reflected in the link instantly that has already been sent. Also, external users aren't required to create and account which takes down a barrier to an otherwise tedious process. I don't know how I would organize and share vast amount of files and information without OneDrive!

Cons: I really don't see any cons...there were some in the past but Microsoft has fixed them in updates to the Software and is very good about listening to the community requesting changes.

Pros: After using Dropbox for a few years and Google Drive (mostly for documents), I find OneDrive to be the perfect full-featured solution. I'm able to sync to my desktop, access via a webpage and have multiple accounts, such as multiple clients and a single personal account all available through Windows Explorer. With the integration of Office 365, you can view documents directly in the browser along with playing common music files. I used it, on a daily basis, to collaborate with clients using various forms of documents such as Word and Excel files.

I've even used it to hold source for software projects that are being actively developed. Because you can see the revision history, and revert back to previous versions, it works quite well in a pinch as a poor man's source control.

Cons: I believe there could be more pricing tiers when bundled with Office 365. However, taking into consideration you can receive 1 TB of storage plus the entire office suite is still quite reasonable.

Overall: Ability to locate files easily across multiple PCs

Pros: I like being able to dedicate a folder for files I use at work or at college, as it saves me from bringing a portable HDD or an USB device.

The service is pretty stable, which has been a problem with me when using Google Drive and its constant 404 errors (or a 501 one in the middle of the download for some reason).

I also like document files can be shared and edited at the same time, unlike the desktop version with lan shared files.

The integration with mobile devices is great as well, however when it comes to photos and video I may use Google Drive instead (as I have an email address exclusively for my phone).

Cons: The initial setup is a bit annoying for the Desktop version, and its interface is terrible compared to other tools. The preview option could be a little better, but overall I'm happy with the service.

Overall: I have been using OneDrive at school and home, as I have a Office 365 Personal license, and so far the experience has been good. The interface may not be as good as Google Drive in my opinion, but to be fair, I find the connection more stable and faster upload speeds.

Pros: OneDrive is providing us cloud services and it is amazing. I have been using OneDrive since it was launched. It is a wonderful development of Microsoft. It is easy to use. It keeps outstanding features and functionality. I keep my personal and business related data on its cloud. It has powerful functions for synchronizing the data which upload our files in seconds. I am never going to leave this app because I have developed enough trust on it.

Cons: OneDrive is one the great apps that keeps our important data online. I do not have much to say in cons. There is one least thing that I would like to pin. Sometimes when I use Onedrive and select the files for uploading it does not sync them but when I close the app and reopen it, then it works. It is strange to reopen the app and try for uploading files second time. I faced that issue very rarely but I want to get rid of it.

Overall: OneDrive keeps importance for business use and proves that there is no better option than that. I have got great experience with this app. After my experience of years I would say, I am a satisfied user of this Drive.

Pros: We've used DropBox before migrating to OneDrive. We migrated to OneDrive because there is an additional cost for us to upgrade to DropBox 1 TB, and since we are composed of a lot of users it will be a great cost to our company. Our OneDrive is a part of our office 365 subscription, and I thought before that since it is bundled it is not as good as DropBox, but I was wrong. Aside from it giving us a great 1 TB space each to save our personal and office files, it has the same functionality as DropBox such as letting the whole team collaborate in saving, editing and creating project presentations, etc.

Since it is powered by Microsoft it is also better to edit word, PowerPoint or excel files there.

Cons: What I least like about the software is that it prompts you from time to time to log in your office.com credentials even if you have already logged in using that device before. Sometimes it is also hard and takes too much time to sync up all files to a new device.

Overall: Overall, OneDrive is a great office-wide drive. It helps team members spread all across the globe to collaborate and exude team work in finishing project tasks. You can also save it using the web version which saves us much time especially when we are using a new device.

Pros: OneDrive has come a long way since it was first release and is now comparable to its competitors. Microsoft released last year the Files-On-Demand feature allowing for you to connect to OneDrive and SharePoint libraries without filling up your drive! Simply select what you want to sync and make available locally and what to remove simply by right clicking and selecting the desired option. What makes this better over other products is if you subscribe to Office 365, you get other features such as Office, SharePoint, Email, Teams and more! You defiantly get a good value with OneDrive despite using it for personal use or business. You can also easily share documents and folders with others.

Cons: The Files-On-Demand feature is only compatible with Windows 10 and not Windows 7, or Windows Server. This makes is hard for you to use in a Server RDS or VDI based setup.

Overall: With the transition to the cloud, I would defiantly evaluate OneDrive for your cloud storage needs. SharePoint on top of that makes it a complete cloud storage solution for business of many sizes.

Pros: There are so many things I love about OneDrive. First, I love the access from any web browser, or device if you have the app installed. I can upload, download, edit, view and more any file from OneDrive. Many times I have uploaded files to OneDrive from my work PC to work on later from home, or to use as backup in case something happens to the original file. I've shared files through OneDrive and so many other functions. I love that I have the app on my work PC and can save directly to it there, and when I pull it from another device (web or app version), I see the same file structure and open or edit as needed. The best part is how OneDrive integrates with other Microsoft applications, including Office365.

Cons: I can't truly think of any part of OneDrive that I don't like, except maybe speed. At times, OneDrive from a web browser can bog down and take a while to load. It could simply be the server is overloaded or maybe a slower internet connection, but it can get frustrating to wait for files to load, watching the little icon spin for a while. With all the tools and functionality packed into OneDrive, it makes sense that sometimes it may run a little slow.

Pros: OneDrive gives a generous amount of cloud space with an Office 365 subscription. It is easy to save files to my desktop File Explorer with OneDrive connected to it.

Cons: The desktop app crashes frequently and without warning, so I don't realize sometimes that my files are not backing up.

Overall: My organization is a small consulting company that hasn't always used the most up-to-date solutions. Employees have server space to save files on, but for the sake of convenience, we often were emailing files back and forth non-securely, both internally and with clients. Some used Google Drive for cloud storage, and others used Dropbox. It was pretty hodgepodge.

Management purchased subscriptions for employees for Microsoft products, including OneDrive, so we could all be on the same platform and securely save and share files. I come from a Hotmail background and had used OneDrive personally for years, so it was a natural switch for me. I love the desktop integration, but it frequently crashes and is not reliable. There are also some things I still haven't figured out that are different in the desktop version. Sharing with a link is easy, and others can view or edit. But even still, Google Drive still seems easier to collaborate in and more natural to learn.

using one drive is very pleasing experience always, great cloud storage solution by Microsoft!

Pros: One of the best features of microsoft OneDrive is that it works on a variety of platforms, like windows, mac , ios and android. It has web app as well. Onedrive actually does not have a specific app on Windows and only exists as a background app. If you go over to save a file, there's an option to move that file over to the OneDrive folder or the main hard drive - this is a fantastic feature. onedrive has this feature where you can share files with other collaborators and work with team members on the same file in real time. I love the fact that I can sync all my work folders on it and access them anywhere I go. Also, There is an option to either sync selected files or entire lot of folders.

Cons: more web based apps where files can be shared and edited - this feature needs to be added to microsoft onedrive. also , sometimes the interface and syncing lags a bit - this can be improved.

Overall: I've tried most of the cloud syncing heavyweights and eventually settled on OneDrive.

The reasons I feel OneDrive is the best is because of its high reliability with almost flawless syncing and its cost-effectiveness, Useful integration with Microsoft office, particularly if you're a Windows 10 user etc...

I'd definitely recommend OneDrive for personal use.

Pros: The feature that is best about OneDrive is that, since it was created by Microsoft, the integration into Windows is seamless. It also makes integration and syncing a lot smoother across all of your devices. No matter where you are in the world, you can easily access your files, share them with other members of your team and sync them for offline use. My company uses OneDrive to share files since we all work remotely, and since we're all on Windows, it makes transferring and sharing files very easy.

Cons: The biggest con about OneDrive, which is really the biggest con about Microsoft in general, is their customer support. Because they are so big and have such a vast library of software products, trying to find specific documenation can be very challenging. Usually, it's non-MS sites or other users that provide the best help when having a problem. Trying to get live help from MS is not fun at all.

Overall: The seamlessness of OneDrive into the OS (if you're using Windows) is the best part of this software. No set-up headaches. It just works all the time.

Pros: First of all, being an educational organization, we get Microsoft products for an extremely affordable rate. OneDrive specifically offers us a HUGE amount of cloud storage space. It is integrated in with the rest of our Office365 products and the support is very helpful. Plus, they are constantly implementing new features and functionality that make it better than the alternatives.

Cons: Every con that I can think of is something that Microsoft has fixed already. A few years ago when we started utilizing it, I will admit that it was terrible. It used to ALWAYS have sync issues and problems staying up to date. Plus you could not use certain symbols that people always tried to use like "#." But Microsoft has fixed all of the sync issues as well as the common symbols not being compatible. I do not remember the last time we had a problem with someone's OneDrive syncing.

Overall: There are an endless number of benefits to using OneDrive. I think the one thing that is the most beneficial though is the OneDrive iOS app which allows me to have access to all of my files straight from my phone.

Pros: Because it's a Microsoft product, the automatic integration with Microsoft Office is great. Setup is minimal, and it's really easy to access all of my files in the cloud no matter where I'm at. There is even a mobile app too, which is a big plus. On Onedrive for Business, the amount of storage I have is unlimited (from what I can tell).

Cons: If you have a personal Onedrive account (not through your company), you might end up running out of free space depending on the types of files you store (videos take up a lot of memory). I'm not sure what the pricing is to get more space. While sharing files in Onedrive is relatively easy, you can't share direct links to the file. For example, you can share a link to an image, but the sharing link will take you to Onedrive to view the image. It would be nice if they let you link directly (with a .png or .jpg ending) so Onedrive images could be embedded directly into HTML.

Overall: I can easily store and access all my documents. Plus, it's easy to manage my work files and my personal Onedrive file separately.

Pros: OneDrive works great as cloud storage. The setup and organization is good and the sharing capability is solid. In my work setting, it is streamlined with the Office 365 platform and works quite well, although at times I do wish that it would be MORE connected with SharePoint.

Cons: As a private consumer, I was extremely disappointed in how I was treated as a "customer". Since I did not pay for any access, I have trouble using that word. However, there were "contractual agreements" made between us and through recruiting of others to join OneDrive, I earned and was rewarded additional storage space on my drive. There were some other offers that I was able to take advantage of and I would up with a substantial amount of storage without paying any money. But then they came through and wiped out all of my rewards, for work I had done for them through recruiting and other means. I was set back to zero (bonus) effectively and I was upset. I told them as much in my customer feedback. But there was no response at all.

Pros: I like the simple application, I have used it both on my personal computer, on my office computer and on my mobile and the data I have placed there is always synchronized. For a few years in the past I had the contracted service of Office365 and used the paid version of OneDrive and I liked that in the free version there are not so many differences. I also like that the moments that I had to activate and deactivate services I noticed that the application realizes that the files are still there and simply checks the status, but does not open a new folder as it happens in other applications.

Cons: Among the things that I do not like, is that in the Mac version, there are no distinctive icons that indicate the status of the files, to know if a file is synchronized I must go to the application and see the status, but if I open the folder in the finder is not clear that it is synchronized and that it is not. I have seen some weaknesses to integrate with iOS applications, that is, some file management applications do not easily open this application, in some cases it is not in the list. I've noticed that it works much better when it comes to applications in Microsoft, which it should not be, because the idea -considering that it is multi-platform- is that it works well in other systems.

Overall: I always have the information, in all my devices and in a simple and easy way.

Pros: OneDrive is one of the great applications that stores data online and keeps backup of my important data. The most thing that I like about OneDrive is, I can have access from anywhere to my data from any device just that needs my account log in. It is really easy to store data by using its advanced features and functions and organize that in amazing way. I can say it is a smart application that I have ever used for my data backup.

Cons: There is no doubt that OneDrive is providing great services to us. But on some phases it needs improvement. If I want to share a folder of data to whole organization, it would be hard or cannot be possible. I do not say it does not let us do the work we want to do via this app, it does but OneDrive should add something new that resolve such issues.

Overall: I wuld higlight here that Microsoft OneDrive is the useful program that keeps user's important files in backup. Nowadays everyone has internet and it is no doubt easy to use this application. For the office use it is most helpful. It has become need of every business.

Pros: This is my main go-to for online storage of documents and files. I have a free and enterprise account, and the free account gives more storage that I'll need for a long time, whilst the enterprise one gives me all the storage I can invasive me EVER needing. The cost for extra storage beyond the free quota is fair, and I have never had an issue with this. I also use IFTTT to automatically synchronise new documents to either the enterprise or free account, depending on where the files are stored on my laptop - great functionality!

Cons: I've never had a bad experience with this software, so at a push, I'd say that there are some storage options that give unlimited storage for free, whereas this requires some sort of payment...but no real negatives at all!

Overall: I use this to backup documents and images from my laptop and my phone, and have never had an issue with it. Highly recommend ti to all! Either the free (which will probably be enough for you), or paid which just increase s the quota to levels a typical computer cant even imagine using up!

Pros: OneDrive pleases me a lot, allows me to share content from anywhere in the world without

interruptions, to be able to access only one must have a good android phone, mac, tablet, ipad or compuradora and there we will have our information fast and always at hand.

I like that it is a really wide Software, it allows to have variety, that is, it can be stored either videos, photos, pdf documents and many other things

I consider that really it is very complete and additionally it is a Software compatible with everything that is with Windows, Mac, although it has an option to store free information is very small this space especially for people who have a lot of things

I really love it is ideal and you have it always at hand

Cons: disadvantage that I as a user could mention of OneDrive would be that the free part is deicr, the free storage is very little, it is really necessary to pay the membership if we really want it to be useful, because for anyone who works within a company We know that this is minimal, so sometimes the cost is high and it is not accessible to everyone.

Overall: As I mentioned before I only see a disadvantage, which in my case is sometimes a disadvantage for the payment but in the same way it is done so I could say that everything is excellent, I quite like the result has been good and I hope to continue using it.

Pros: Microsoft have finally got a robust file sync & share tool, the earlier versions were unreliable, slow and prone to crashing, but those who have stuck it out now have Files on Demand and with a OneDrive for Business licence = 1TB of storage. Which currently works out cheaper than Dropbox.

So much so that I cancelled my personal Dropbox account and signed up for Microsoft Office 365 Business Essentials, which came with Exchange Online, 1TB of SharePoint storage AND 1TB of OneDrive for Business storage.

Cons: OneDrive was always compared to Dropbox in the UK, as this was a much more feature rich file sync & share tool. With one of the main features still missing, being the ability to cache on a local network by p2p data. So if one of your users had shared a 1GB file with 30x of their colleagues, then that 1GB would need to be uploaded then downloaded 30x times.

Overall: Sync files from desktop to laptop. Can't wait for Android sync camera photos to OneDrive for Business as using it with the free OneDrive.

Pros: The best thing about OnedDrive is just how easy it is to use. You sign in on two devices, and bam, just like that you can auto sync folders or manually add files that you want to access on both.

The other major pro for this is the modularity it provides. Have files you want transported between work computers? Sign up with your work email, and only those files will be shown. Have personal files you definitely don't want showing up on your work computer? No problem, sign up with your work email and it'll keep them entirely separate.

Cons: The initial setup is very, very slightly more tedious then something like Google Drive. With Google Drive you sign in to a central, online location and have access to everything. With OneDrive you need to access the other device and login to it before you can share files. This is pretty much a nonissue though.

Overall: The primary benefit I got was from the modularity, I was able to very easily transfer files, from the same computer, to my school computer and my desktop.

Pros: We use the share files feature, weekly, to connect our office computer (where I work and design graphics, videos, etc.) to our sound/tech booth for weekly church services. It skips a step of plugging in a flash drive and worrying about whether I'm going to get it back from our tech crew! We love having the ability to all see the same file and even make alterations to files online so we can collaborate on group projects from any computer.

Cons: This platform is less common, has fewer features, and less cross-platform compatibility (iOS, Android, PC) than other, similar services like Google Drive, etc. It can be difficult to get people to use it, simply because they already have one of the other services and don't want to have to learn another new system. Would love to see a "link other accounts" option that would allow it to sync with other file storing services such as Google, Dropbox, etc, so that I could sign in to one account and view files from all the others, as well.

Pros: It syncs with all of your pc's and Microsoft office suite programs. In that regard it provides a rather streamlined service. Their pricing is standard and that includes access to their office suite (word, excel, publisher etc.). Their web interface is standard and their pc program is that installs the folder on your pc is adequate. I mean, if you need Microsoft office you're gong you get Onedrive as well, so you may as well use it.

Cons: You cannot put the onedrive folder into another hard drive besides the main c: drive. So if that's tight on space then you are going to be limited on your sync options. Also, I've noticed with larger files or folders with a lot of individual files inside, the zip files that download are sometimes missing files. The sync works well enough but if you need to download via the website a large file, double check it for missing information.

Overall: You're most likely going to have this already, you're going to use it. It works, it's the second best option out there in my opinion.

Pros: It automatically stores and remembers your pictures and videos without you having to do nothing and you could access your files and pics from any device PC laptop or cell phone because it is a cloud-based program so everything is stored. When you open up OneDrive it keeps all your pics and everything organized in specific categories which makes it way easier to find what you're looking. One of the best applications ever made and it clears memory from your phone by storing your files

Cons: It would that much cooler if this program would automatically let me know when I'm able to free up memory on my cell or device by deleting files that Have already been backed up on one drive. You only get 15gb on the free version. If u want more u have to pay for it.

Overall: Like I said this is one of the coolest apps out there if you go through as many phones as I do this is perfect because it keeps track of all your files and you always have access to them no matter which device you use you just download them onto a new device its pretty cool

Pros: OneDrive is one of the great cloud storage platforms. It allows us very simple and easy ways of storing our important data in its secure cloud system that is web-based. It does not let me worried about my files because it has powerful cloud and has become the most reliable application I have ever used. It keeps easy to use functionality. The most interesting thing is, it provides free storage space to every new user that lets the user know about its services then one can purchase its additional space.

Cons: It has been a great time since I am using One Drive there is no any major problem that I have to dislike any feature of OneDrive. One minor Issue that I have to face sometimes, it takes long time to sync my files and the wait I have to undergo that kills me. I have a powerful internet connection then also sometimes it happens.

Overall: It is playing a significant role in my business. It keeps my important files on its cloud and lets me access with them anytime I want. It is a trusted product.

Pros: Its mobility is the best feature because it solves the desktop clutter problem for important documents that you may need to access away from work. Let's face it people generate clutter - invoices, photos, to do lists, plans for the weekend or up[coming trip. One drive takes My Docs to a mature, more evolved level. The storage that comes with my account is 1 TB - which is a massive vault for most people's info. If media figures heavily into your portfolio, the space may run out sooner. But for common pdfs, doc, sheets - plenty of room. Its where I dump most anything not belonging in another place.

Cons: Files stored in OneDrive do not always make the transition from online version to offline versions smoothly. Very often - the local excel installed on my home computer will not respond to commands from the OneDrive code even though it is an updated version of the software - this happens most with excel. Microsoft needs to iron out this feature because while the online version works, it is no where near as useful as offline editing

Overall: Mobility and accessing personal docs from anywhere. Really a place to dump my personal clutter while at work

Pros: OneDrive is a free service from Microsoft to save files in the cloud by tuning them with your computer.

I use it daily, it saves me a lot of time and allows me to better manage the projects that I embark on, it is pre-installed in Windows 8 and 10 and it is automatically linked to your Microsoft account with which you log in. So, if you buy a new computer, simply by entering your email and password and without having to install anything, you will be able to access your files.

The advantage here is not simply that it is preinstalled in Windows, but that being from the same Windows developers (Microsoft), they have been able to create a perfect integration in which we will not find any faults.

Cons: We still do not have total certainty of the degree of security that this storage system offers, as a general rule, we understand that they are facilities that have a greater possibility of security in terms of technical development, maintenance, support and access to information than any installation particular.

Overall: This has many uses, since you can share a file with a friend and work both on the same file at the same time.

Pros: What I love about this software is the ease of use. Everything is in view and easy to navigate. The interface is simple and clear while it saves everything for easy access wherever you are. I use this as a contingency plan for my coursework. It is reliable and dependable. Did I mention it is from a very reputable company. Microsoft has been supplying all of my personal, academic, and professional needs my whole life. You cannot go wrong with this software. Oh, as if that weren't enough, I got it on my Iphone too!

Cons: If I am being completely honest, the only thing that I would change, the theme. It is not very appealing to the eye, but I am only complaining because you asked. It wasn't something that would deter me from using the software.

Overall: I love OneDrive and still am using it to this day. It is so convenient. I can access all of my stuff from anywhere in the world and that is makes things very less stressful for me. Even if my computer were to crash, I wouldnt lose all my hard work.

Pros: The ease of operation and convenience. Onedrive's implementation of seamless integration of your files across all your devices is one of the best in the industry. It's easy to operate and even the website feels intuitive and convenient to use. The biggest advantage one gets is that Onedrive uses a physical folder on your storage, which continuously syncs all the files you put there, across all your connected devices. This eliminates the tedious process of uploading and downloading files from one device to another and immensely boosts productivity. Lastly, I feel the storage provided by default free plan is more than enough as long as you are working with just documents and images.

Cons: The only con and even that is nitpicking is that the 5gb storage that comes with the free preliminary plan is a little less as compared to competitors in the industry. If one works with big files on the cloud , this might become an issue.

Overall: Overall, onedrive is an excellent software to use. It's reliable, it's convenient and gets the job done. I'm using it in conjunction with other cloud storage applications and onedrive completely holds its own. Having a physical folder on your device is an advantage it enjoys over other such softwares. Storage could be an issue for some, but it's enough if one is using it for personal office work. Recommended.

Pros: OneDrive has various pros for me. One thing I love is that they offer an app that I can use on my phone to download images that Inhave uploaded onto my OneDrive and share them right away on social media! It makes it so mich easier for me to share images that are not taken or edited on my phone! Another pro for me is the organization and sharing features. You can organize your files into folders as you Would on your computer. You can choose to share each folder and provide permissions on what can be done on the receiving end-editing or viewing only. I love this feature because it allows me to share proofs with clients and not have to worry about them being downloaded. Also, you can password protect folders! Another touch that is amazing while sharing images with clients! It helps make the process feel much more secure and personal! Even if you want to start with the free version you have ample space and are not forced to move up to a more expensive option.

Cons: I do not have many cons when it comes to OneDrive. Like most softwares I wish duke uploading (especially larger files) could happen faster but this I believe will update over time as with many other program.

Overall: Overall I Love using OneDrive it's personal, professional, well organized and easy to use! I would recommend it to anyone!

Pros: What I like most about OneDrive is that it makes it easy and convenient to share and store files in the cloud. It is simple to set-up and start using this software because it has a user-friendly interface. OneDrive is a tool that you can use with a smartphone, tablet or computer. For that reason, with OneDrive, you can rest assured to access your files from anywhere give there is stable internet connection.

Cons: To be in line with OneDrive, it is a must to have internet connection. That makes it hard for corporations that are in remote areas to implement this application. In addition, I do not like the amount of space that is available in the free option. To get the most out of OneDrive, you need to make sure that you consider one of the subscription plans offered by Microsoft.

Overall: OneDrive has helped us to create more storage on company PC's since we save our documents in the cloud. We have also been able to manage and organize files in folders, that makes it easy to locate them when we need them.

Pros: OneDrive is folder based, just like Windows. So, it is easy to conceptualize how it should work from the website to the local sync client. It allows permissions to be assigned to individual folders for the purpose of securing a folder for a specific user or group of users. It also allows for sharing of a folder based on an obscure URL for access or an obscure URL with a password. It allows for full synchronization between desktop files and the cloud, or just the files and folders you select.

Cons: Mainly, the problems we experience are because of how Windows 10 handles integration with OneDrive. It always wants to put the home directory right in the user profile, and it is hard to force it to do otherwise.

Overall: Easy enough to use, but lacking some advanced features from companies like Jungle Disk. It seems to be designed for individual use while some group features have been implemented in a haphazard way. But still useful and as part of a hosted solution from Microsoft, pennies on the dollar from other providers.

Pros: One critical merit for the use of OneDrive is its reliability and safety. I ma certain that no one who can easily gain access to the information stored in OneDrive as it has significant security measures. Furthermore, the process of implementing and executing OneDrive is simple, and the support team guides the users accordingly. OneDrive has great features, that makes the product interesting. It is easy and efficient to share files through OneDrive. Content management for OneDrive is also great.

Cons: But OneDrive is not an application for the "poor". That is, subscribing for a premium OneDrive demands adequate cash, something that may not be available for most of the small users/firms. Again, OneDrive has an unfriendly user interface, and this makes it hard for some people to opt it.

Overall: OneDrive assist organizations in storing and sharing files with other people. It is a secure, reliable, and efficient storage platform, which supports the process of information sharing and usage.

Pros: OneDrive is the perfect automatic cloud storage. The most awesome thing about this application, whenever I make document is office I know the will automatically will be saved in that cloud storage and I would not be worried about it. After this feature it has brought many useful features which helps the user to protect files and provide easy way to access data anywhere without getting worried about any kind of trouble. So OneDrive is the great cloud storage service with some free storage which is really blessing from its company.

Cons: The customer support of OneDrive is corporative. I have not got any con about OneDrive but I would say the free space limit should be a little greater than before. One thing I was facing last month which was that, I had storage space but device was notifying your space of cloud storage is about to full even once I was shocked but one of my friends resolve that issue.

Pros:

This application has allowed me to archive my documents in the cloud, use it on my desktop computer, my tablet and mobile device, keeping my files synchronized on the different devices where I use the application, which makes it easy for me to access my files without many complications, I feel one of the great advantages offered by this software. You can share files with other users which is very important to share work files of common interest with colleagues in the office. Onedrive allows us to access the latest version of a file as it saves the modifications automatically. It is simply a very useful and easy to use tool.

Cons: You should be sure to close a file when you finish using it because if you open it on another device it can generate several copies or versions of the same document. It can be a bit slow if you have stored many photos or images with heavy formats, but this problem arises if you have a slow internet connection, however if you do not have this problem you can make use of the application and your files are no problem, allowing you upload and download your documents quickly and safely. It is the advantages plus the disadvantages that this program has offered me, it has been useful and very helpful

Pros: What I like most about this software is that you can integrate videos with Xbox, as well as share them. It allows to upload photos automatically from any device. In addition, it allows you to place folders in the Windows Phone start menu and synchronize the heart of all Windows. It also lets you search inside your photos and synchronize data between devices without occupying all the space established. Another advantage of OneDrive is that it allows you to edit documents online and also allows you to work as a team.

Cons: At the beginning it requires the Internet to configure the application and synchronize the files. Allow only one account and to store more than 10 GB you have to pay. We do not directly control our files.

Overall: This service of mass storage of data in servers that provide some companies that store our computer data files in their processing centers has spread exponentially with the arrival of social networks. With it you can upload up to 5 files simultaneously in a standard way with any browser and install an Activex tool that allows you to drag an unlimited number of files directly from the Windows Explorer. It is a highly efficient tool for both companies and people.

Pros: The appreciable thing in OneDrive is its best cloud storage which is secure and safe. This cloud storage is the best as compare to other cloud applications available in market. I also like the feature of file sharing which is advance one. It allows us to upload easily multimedia from mobile devices. What I feel about this application is such a great development of cloud store. It keeps my backup secure I do not have to be worried about my data which is always considered to be awesome thing for every user of OneDrive. It has wonderful and remarkable.

Cons: The least thing i like i would just say it become sometimes slow running application. If i talk over the software development, Microsoft has developed it in a beautiful way. The problem i have to come across with may be because of the millions of the users of the OneDrive. I honestly love to use the products of the Microsoft and i am completely satisfied with its service.

Pros: I remember a time when Microsoft offered unlimited data storage on this service... although it has been scaled down to 1TB for Office 365 users... that's still a ton lot of space for my typical Office work/documents use.

OneDrive sync smoothly runs on the background and I hardly notice/feel it consuming any memory/processing power to be bothersome while working.

And of course, its integration with Microsoft products is seamless... upload or opening my office files to/from OneDrive is very straight forward. Plus I can also work collaboratively with my peers on the same files.

Cons: One common complaint I have heard from our multimedia staff is the limitation on filesize (15GB?). Although, to me personally, I have not had the need for such a bigger space allowance per file. So, no complaints really.

Overall: OneDrive is the go-to cloud storage service if you're very much into using Microsoft products. Collaborative, Secure, Smooth, and Seamless.

Pros: It's included with Office365. Features and functionality keep getting better, essentially catching up with the ease of use you'll find in Dropbox. If you have Office365, it's a no brainer to use this as your file sharing service. I wouldn't always have said this, but the service has reached a level of maturity that it's finally competitive with Dropbox. The iPhone app has a handy feature to scan to pdf that rubbersheets the scan to 8.5x11 format. Good feedback as to what is syncing, synced, etc.

Cons: It's been a bumpy road getting to where they are now. I would often resort to using dropbox because it was more intuitive. For a long time it was clear that onedrive was built on sharepoint, and the permissions/security blanket would always make for an awkward and confounding sharing experience. Links would go out and recipients would be forced to make an account to see the files. Not elegant. I would say that's fixed now.

My new company I joined is using MS360 products and I'm not a fan.

Pros: There are many great things about using Microsoft Drive and all the other products they offer. They are integrated and all work together nicely. Drive is incorporated into Outlook and all the other MS products and it easy to access and move items stored in the cloud quickly and efficiently to other MS software. It's quick to set up and easy to install and it can quickly become your default hard drive if you are saving a lot of things and don't want to take up space on your laptop or desktop hard drive.

Cons: It took me a while to get used to Drive as it's not as "simple" to use as dropbox or google drive. This might be "petty", but I feel like Drive makes me do 2 to 3 additional tasks in order to complete downloading a doc. With Dropbox and Google, you simply download the document. I feel like I have to work harder to do the same thing I can do with other products in one step. MS Drive is just more cumbersome and less intuitive then their competitors.

Overall: I got all the benefits of using the software and it does what it claims it can do. I just think it's less intuitive then other products like Dropbox and Google Drive and it requires more effort to use the software. It could be personal preference, but most people agree that most of MS products make you go through 5 different tasks before you can complete what you're trying to accomplish.

Pros: What i like most concerning OneDrive is its accessibility/mobility. With this product, one can obtain their files anytime they need them. Again, OneDrive is a stable storage platform, and this guarantee its user security and reliability. Furthermore, OneDrive is widely used more so in the banking sector, and therefore, it means it is safe and secure. Lastly, managing content in OneDrive is easy, and this makes the process of searching quick and efficient.

Cons: Unfortunately, OneDrive is expensive like other Microsoft products. Sometimes I try to consider the growing firms, and how they can struggle to obtain this product. I could recommend the vendor to offer this product at a reduced price. Again, OneDrive has unfriendly/an unattractive user design. Something need to be done.

Overall: In general, OneDrive has not disappointed us in our organization. I think it is the safest and Convenient storage platform that an organization can get.

Pros: Utilization across multiple platforms, background sync, Windows based file structure and ease of app integration. From Droid to Windows to Apple, One Drive has allowed seamless file storage and utilization of the amazing One Note application.

Cons: There are only two things that I was not fond of. First, the iPhone app (in relation to photos) only shows one continuous stream of photos to scroll through, but can load slow if there are a lot of pictures uploaded; not the best choice if your sole purpose is photo storage/retrieval. Second, when setting up a One Note on One Drive it was not initially intuitive where/how the two connected. After clicking around for a bit it became obvious, but since all Windows apps are designed to play nice together further instruction would have been welcome.

Overall: Ease of file retrieval between multiple platforms along with a secure source of file storage; seamless sync when utilizing One Note between multiple devices on multiple platforms.

Pros: I like how easy it is to upload and sync files - I use both the desktop app and the Offics Apps integration to save files to OneDrive directly from PowerPoint, Word etc, as well as uploading files as I attach them to Outlook emails. I love the space it saves on my computer with Win10 by only syncing requested files locally, but showing all my files in the cloud are retrieving them as necessary.

Cons: Sometimes setup, or migrating from an older app to a new one doesn't go off without a hitch, requiring you to uninstall, trash all local copies, and re-sync from the cloud. Occasionally the Office apps can't sign in and I have to let the OneDrive app sync changes to documents.

Overall: I use OneDrive to share any files that I need to pass along unaltered (often video files for editing and review, but also office documents and images). I also use it to keep all my personal files available across multiple devices, including my mobile, so I always have my important files handy.

Pros: One Drive's best feature is absolutely its integration with Microsoft and their suite of software. Excel, Word, Access, all offer convenient one drive saving options. This means that no matter what happens to your home computer, or where you are at, your important documents are safe. What makes onedrive better then its competitors is that it eliminates the biggest weakness of cloud backups, forgetting to save to the cloud instead of locally. With onedrives syncing options it does automatically, what the other solutions force you to set up. This is by far the largest pro.

Cons: It is truly hard to find a con with this software. If I had to choose one it would be that they did not have the first mover benefit and have some ground to make up with its free competitors. However from a business use standpoint I do not think it can be beat.

Overall: Peace of mind that my important documents were always safe, and always available.

Pros: "Cloud" can store many pictures for several years, movies. Especially information that can not be lost in the event of a hardware failure on the computer. Do not need to store confidential information on your computer (private correspondence do need to be hidden from children if you use one computer).

Reliable storage of information. There is no likelihood that information will be lost due to a malfunction in the operating system or computer (I have this often).

You can give other users access to certain materials or a folder by reference (business partners or your family) - this allows not to send files by e-mail, and watch them online.

Files can be viewed from any device (mobile phone, Ipad, computer in public library)

Cons: Lack of access to the service due to technical problems on the servers (When you do not have access to the Internet or there is a glitch in the Microsoft service)/ The disk completely lacks the search function, which makes it very difficult to handle the program when it loads many documents./ For example, not all users like the application on the computer (Windows). The big drawback is that the process always run in the startup process when the computer boots. Consequently, an unnecessary load arises on the processor and the hardware of the computer.

Overall: This is important for people who work with large volumes of information - photographers, editors, designers, IT professionals and ordinary users

Pros: It is easy to set up and use with the windows operating system. The one drive folders show up in the files list for almost all programs you would install, so it is easy to copy and save to the one drive. The best part is that you can use any computer with a internet connection, or any mobile device and access the folders in your one drive without having to install any software.

Cons: These are very minor inconveniences for the benefits but .....One drive is constantly looking for changes and updating so It can slow your start up or other programs if you were working offline for a while and have a lot of updates at once. But there is also the option to temporarily stop syncing if you need to wait for a better time . Also when your one drive files get large you might need to reorganize your folders to only sync certain folders locally in order to save hard drive space on your local machines.

Pros: Having used some of the major competitors, I would say that OneDrive is of the highest quality of all of them. The Desktop app integrates into Windows flawlessly, and allows you to view all of your files as if they were located on your computer, regardless of whether or not you've downloaded them.

It also seamlessly integrates itself with the Office suite, so you can save or open files directly from the cloud on your computer, through the browser, and on your mobile device.

Cons: Microsoft could do better with the settings integration, putting them in the Windows 10 Settings app instead of keeping them accessible by right clicking the taskbar icon.

I've noticed that sometimes I'll be trying to work on a file from my phone and move to my laptop, and the file will be locked. It takes longer than it should to decide that my phone is no longer holding a lock over the file after it's been closed.

Pros: It is so easy to use! So much cloud stuff is difficult & written for the tech guys. That's not me. OneDrive I can use myself. It's perfect for storing our family photo's, and sharing with parents & kids in faraway places. I can share it all or just a folder with the click on my mouse. This has been fantastic for keeping all the things I need handy on both my laptop & desktop. It's the perfect solution to grabbing work files while I'm traveling & getting work down in out-of-the-way places.

Cons: I have had moments of confusion when my OneDrive isn't online for one reason or another. Then I have to dig around and find why it's not connecting to the internet, when the rest of my system is online. It's not intuitive, there's no "click here to connect" type of button. And that type of button is my type of button LOL!

Overall: I use this primarily for photo storage & sharing among family. However, I also use it take my work with me when I travel and I use it to share work-in-progress when working on a collaboration with my team. It has been easy, hassle-free and I love having what I need, when I need, where I need it.

Pros: I like that I can save the files and they will automatically are uploaded to One Drive. My co-workers can use the same files and we can follow-up with changes all the time. It is also beneficial as backups, in case something goes wrong, we can go back to get the previous version.

Cons: Sometimes it is a bit tricky to debug it, when some files are not updated properly and the update process needs to be restarted. Sometimes it may be because some files were not put in the proper location.

Overall: I use One Drive at work, for our online school. We got One Drive with our Microsoft Office 365 subscription. For now the 1TB included storage was enough for our company. The documents are securely saved to the One Drive cloud and easily shared with my co-workers. We set it up to put the original files in a network drive and from there the files are saved to One Drive. There are files that we share, in our Department. Other colleagues need to make changes during the month. This help us with the overall reporting activities.

Pros: Being able to access my files from anywhere, and then being able to work on basic editing it the browser is so much more efficient than having to have multiple copies or moving things around with a usb drive. It makes it possible to have a single authoritative document that you can access and edit from multiple devices. This is also a huge plus when working with teams since you can share that single resource with other people.

Cons: It is not totally reliable when it comes to syncing to the folder on my desktop (or from desktop to cloud, although that is usually better). Sometimes it seems to get hung up, and there is no clear what to fix it. In the past, when I tried to resolve the problem, it signed me out of my account. Then when I logged back in and asked it to repair the folder, it just created an entire new library and duplicated all the documents in the new location.

Overall: Efficiency. I used to have multiple copies and versions of work moving since I do not work in my office a lot. My prior approach was using emails and just sending documents to myself. Using One Drive has changed all of that.

Pros: Most user friendly UI you'll ever get. It has all the feature to share and upload any file with any format. By default you'll get 5 GB of space which is more than enough for anyone. Still you can upgrade the space with an affordable price. In outlook also we have the option to directly upload the attachments to the linked onedrive.

Cons: In mobile app version, we can't access onedrive directly from outlook application. Though you can check what files you have in onedrive, still you can share it with any particular user from here.

If the internet is disconnected or slow, still it shows the file is uploaded but while checking inside the onedrive, the file was not there but still it shows file uploaded successfully. Don't know whether it's happening with everyone or just happened with me one time!

Overall: Simply open an account, you will get 5 GB of storage ! Even it has an mobile app for both android and ios. Happy file uploading and sharing...

Pros: Once migrated from Google Drive to MS One Drive, I have to say I really see a lot of difference. One Drive so seamlessly integrates with your operating system, you don't even realize, you're using it. Simple collaboration with your team members, easy access minus backup pain - what else can an admin dream about. Once you enforce usage of the drive in your organization, your backup request will shrink to almost nothing. No more mappnig network drives over VPN. It's a "To-Go" all-in-one solution that will never make you disappointed.

Cons: While editing documents in One Drive seems seamless, it still has room for improvement. Document layouts may get out of hand. Other than that, no complaints

Overall: Being a part of MS family of products, it makes it so simple to use. I also like the idea of consolidates paying for license of the O365 product, that includes the cost of One Drive, so you don't have to think of any other bills / licenses.

Pros: We use Office365 and get Onedrive as part of the package. In my case it is used for :

1. Collaboration and file-sharing amongst colleagues and team members - easy to share and synchronise content between multiple team members working on the same content (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc.)

2. Good version management that allows you to go back to a previously saved version of the file - again for collaboration

3. Synchronisation of Onedrive content between multiple devices (again for collaboration)

4. Good integration with Office365 (which is why I use it primarily)

5. Fast and fuss-free provided you have a decent Internet connection (which most workplaces or homes should have)

Cons: None so far. However caveat emptor here - we all like freeware or software that works. Coming from Microsoft themselves, pricing should be further reduced to encourage widespread adoption.

Pros: It's fairly easy to use, accessible from anywhere via the browser, and does what it should. You can share files and folders pretty easily, so I'd say it is a good way to store/share data if that is what you seek. One really cool thing, is for a home user, it's only 7 or 8 bucks a month for a terabyte of storage, and you get access to office 365, which is very useful. Also cost effective since you wouldn't have to buy MS office.

Cons: Depending which version you use, security can be an issue. As I understand it, the "home user" version stores in plain text, while the business version encrypts data. In a breach, this could be a problem for those storing unencrypted.

Overall: Overall, I find it a decent product. I've been using the free version for some time, and we use the business version at the office now. Of course, it takes people some time to get accustomed to it, but once they do, it's just another method to store and share data.
