A formidable cloud-storage solution for the masses...at a price

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: Most of our end users use this product in our environment. I like the ability to synchronize SharePoint team sites / document libraries. It eliminates the need to have to open a browser to look at files that are hosted out on SharePoint. By using this App, it makes uploading / deleting / renaming files easier than having to do it through the browser as well. If you haven't used OneDrive or OneDrive For Business before, it works much like Dropbox / Google Drive, so anyone who has used either of these other products in the past will be familiar with how to use OneDrive.

Cons: Probably my two biggest complaints / cons with OneDrive are this: 1.) There are separate Apps for OneDrive / OneDrive For Business. I think one unified app would make this better, but for now, I guess we are stuck with two. The only benefit to this, at least in our environment, is that since we have an external SharePoint (hosted with Office 365) and an internal SharePoint which is hosted on premises, it is easier to have users use OneDrive for Office 365 and OneDrive For Business for our internal SharePoint.

The other pain is that the software can be buggy. People will have problems with files / folders synchronizing and the error messages that pop up are very vague, most of the time, the only troubleshooting step is to stop synching the libraries and resync them. It does seem to work better now that we have upgraded to SharePoint 2016 and Windows 10 / Office 2016. If you are thinking of implementing this in your environment, be sure to read the list of acceptable file names, characters, etc. as our users have had issues because they are using unsupported characters in file names, causing synch issues.

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 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.

I use it to keep my personal information synchronized with my devices.

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: 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.

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: 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: 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.

Comments: In General, a good cloud service to store files, backups, share them, work together on documents and so on. And the main thing is that it is installed with Windows out of the box.

Pros: Quite a good cloud application that comes with Windows as they say out of the box. Pleasing deep integration with Microsoft products you will love it, especially if you use products from Microsoft, such as Excel, Word and so on. If you buy an Office 365 subscription, your storage can be significantly increased. Great minimalistic interface, recently you can now store photos taken from your device that will be uploaded to the cloud machine. Developers in can deploy their web applications for example to the same Azure directly from the OneDrivecloud. The OneDrive application runs on different platforms, you can access just from a web browser.

Cons: Despite the fact that OneDrive appeared back in the days of Windows 8, but not to say that has undergone significant changes in both the interface and features, the same Google Drive has significant advantages in terms of the same storage and processing of photos, as well as with the download of any file types completely without problems, while in OneDrive such operation can fail. From him no way to refuse and to remove, as it is in Windows out of the box.

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: 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: 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 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: My previous company was using office subscriptions, so got one drive as default CMS, It's really easy and trustworthy option, some of the major points I really like:

-It's everywhere, I was using Android and its app is great with all basic features of editing and sharing important assets, got notifications when someone edit shared files too.

-Like Dropbox it gives windows one drive folder option too, it really enhances productivity.

-Whatsoever I attach in emails, saves in one drive automatically, even it was standard to upload assets to one drive and share the link in our company, Its search feature makes it good CMS.

-Office integrations, all office apps like powerpoint, excel and especially one note relies on one drive.

Cons: I found it a really slow app with sometimes sync issues, also one drive content management is limited to one user only not to the company level, one can't use it as the central repository to track assets.

One drive alone has not much significance, it's only office apps which make it fit for the need. With MS-office subscription it's a necessary tool.

Overall: -It was easy to upload big files and share them using outlook.

-Whenever I share my docs with some client, I knew it where to find them later and even I can change access rules later on.

-Universally available (all major OS are well covered).

-Good storage volume with office subscription.

-It's an MS product so I was quite comfortable to share confidential docs (for which we were using own private cloud with paid CMS formerly).

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

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: 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: 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

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: 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.

Mobile office at your fingertips and access to a large variety of useful tools.

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: 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: OneDrive is a must have free cloud storage service if you do not like Google Drive or Dropbox. With OneDrive I can backup images and documents located in certain documents I choose on my PC and Android phone automatically once they are created with great upload speed thanks to OneDrive PC and Android clients that are robust. OneDrive is great for syncing files between multiple devices for example I use it to automatically sync files between my PC and laptop. I also use OneDrive to share some files with public with easy to use sharing options. Being integrated with Office, I can easily edit and create Excel spreadsheets and Word documents.

Cons: OneDrive free plan offers 5 GB of storage which is relatively small compared to Google Drive free plan which offers 15 GB however it gives you 1TB of storage for less money than Google Drive does.

OneDrive free plan does not include encryption of files on the server side leaving the files exposed to Microsoft employees and anyone who manages to breach the server.

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.

Very frustrating!

Pros: it was free for 15gb and I figured I would pay when I exceeded that.

UNTIL TODAY, Microsoft has reneged on what it promised, it just reduced by 66% the capacity I am allowed.

Cons: I have recently had a very disappointing and frustrating experience trying to transition to OneDrive. The online Microsoft support was almost useless. They only answer one question at a time and it takes at least 24 hours for each. I gave up after 2 weeks of emails going back and forth. In the meantime, OneDrive had caused many of my photo (and possibly document) files to be corrupted. And had trashed 1500+ of my files without me knowing it. (I was able to restore them when I found them in the recycle bin.) There is no way to pause the document syncing with OneDrive which is especially problematic when you need to upload many existing files. And there is no good way to know on your local machine which files have actually been synced to the cloud or not.

Even though it is a bit more costly, I have not had any of these issues in the 3 years I have been using Dropbox.

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 is hosted on SharePoint provided by Microsoft. Microsoft OneDrive is available upon download either by purchase of trial and online. With two ways to view the user interface, there is a classic view and web view. The Microsoft One Drive is a windows application that stores documents such as Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, Publisher, and PowerPoint files, and PDF or other Microsoft files. Microsoft One Drive is a great online tool that allows for effective productivity of file integration. Updates automatically on either a Windows of PC operating system.

Cons: Microsoft OneDrive online does not have the option to return to the web view. Microsoft OneDrive is incapable of uploading mp4 files properly. The file types such as mp4 or mp3 will download as the default file type. Third party apps or services may obtain access to files depending on the permission and Microsoft is not responsible for any information provided by third parties. For users purchasing the product, Microsoft reserves the billing of the account using the users credit card information either reoccurring electronic or "in advanced payments". Users may need to review the Microsoft Services Agreement for details regarding payment method and other information relating to data and content disclosure.

Overall: The benefits of utilizing Microsoft OneDrive are being able to store files securely using an Office 365 Home, Personal or Business account. Other benefits of using OneDrive include being able to upload related Microsoft files up to 1KB. Additional benefits of utilizing OneDrive include being able to use 10GB of space of file storage. OneDrive is a great web and software application to use as practicing professional. As a professional, sharing files with other registered users with colleagues is made simple by Microsoft OneDrive.

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 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: 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: 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 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: 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: Integration with all of our Microsoft suite of products (Office 365) is really quite seamless. Like most offices, we essentially live inside the Microsoft universe, and having a cloud drive that works well with all of those files - from Excel to Word to Publisher - is essential. OneDrive really takes integration to a high level, and is perfect for a the Microsoft-based network.

Cons: Organization of the file system and sharing aren't great. We've encountered some issues moving shared files around within OneDrive; many times we've had to download files and then upload them again in another place. It's kind of odd that the drive file system doesn't really function independently when you're working with shared files.

Overall: We primarily use OneDrive because we work in Microsoft Office 365, and it plays well with all of those products in that suite. There are certainly plenty of areas where we would like to see improvement - namely in sharing and file organization - but on the whole OneDrive meets our needs reasonably well.

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: 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 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. I do not how but now it is working awesome.

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: 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: 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.

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: 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: 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 absolutely LOVE my Onedrive! Currently I am a Personal Office Subscriber - includes 1 terabyte of storage, which I have not even gotten close to using all of. I am debating going up to the Business plan for my art brand but so far I have not lacked for any space and it seamlessly connects between cloud and computer/tablet/phone with a quiet and unnoticeable syncing process. It is easy to use and the plan comes with a TON of features and apps.

Cons: If you have a slow internet connection you will notice the syncing process a bit more and while you can get free storage without a subscription, it is such a palty amount in this day and age you might as well pay the monthly fee, unless you can't which of course leads to the downside. It definitely competes with Google Drive and that comes with pros and cons all it's own.

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: Microsoft onedrive allows for an easy transition to cloud-based data storage and collaboration. Being able to keep my original word documents and powerpoints as I transitioned to cloud-based work made the tool far more accessible than needing to convert my documents to google docs or something similar. I can easily share and collaborate within my organization, and access my work from multiple locations and mobile devices.

Cons: Microsoft onedrive has been a relatively easy to use tool, but collaboration tools seem inconsistent. This may be changing with upcoming updates, but sharing documents with others outside my institution has been frustrating and inconsistent. These problems have been prevalent enough to cause me to do some things in google docs, and others in word. This has been frustrating to say the least! I hope Microsoft does get their produces in order as i would prefer to stick to one tool.

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: 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.

I usually don't spend a lot of time in my office, so having access to my files on the go is vital

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: 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: I love using One drive it is a cloud based program which gives me access to all my docs, files and information from any device no matter where I am at or using. It has tons of free memory I have been saving stuff on Onedrive for the last 5 years and I still find pictures I havnt seen or forgot about from forever. If you lose your phone you can download your pics and docs to your new one with no problem

Cons: It is limiting when it trying to share files with colleagues, and clients/suppliers too. This also limits its effectiveness as a project management tool. I really dont have anything more negative to say about this software I have never really had any issues i could think of.

Overall: This software is awesome there is hardly nothing to learn to use this software it automatically backs everything up with out you having to do any thing and it organizes your pics into specific groups so they are easier to find without searching through all of them

Pros: The fact that Microsoft has well-written clients for every platform (except Linux) means that I can easily access my files no matter where I am. I have my iOS client configured to automatically upload all photos/videos I take, so I don't need to worry about losing those if something were to happen to my phone. If you have an Office 365 account (personal or business), you get a full 1 TB of storage, so you've got plenty of room to keep your cloud files.

Cons: I use my OneDrive as a computer backup storage location for my personal computer, and as a result, I'm actually using over 90% of my 1 TB of storage from my Office 365 personal account. Unfortunately, Microsoft doesn't offer a way to pay to upgrade this storage. Once you're on Office 365, they take away the ability to buy additional storage. So once I run out of room, I will be forced to clean off backups or find another solution.

Pros: With a microsoft account like hotmail or failing outlook, you can get free onedrive storage up to 5gb which allows you to upload all the information and access it from anywhere and from a variety of devices such as tablet or smatphone, avoiding having information in the computer, that if it is damaged or lost, we would automatically lose the information, this does not happen if we have an account and use onedrive for the storage of it. With a paid account for a few dollars you can get much more storage.

Cons: for the free account before it had more capacity, the same was reduced to 5gb. Depending on the needs of the user, if you have a company you can evaluate the possibility of acquiring office 365 that many of its configurations already have a corporate online account with ample capacity for storing information.

Overall: backup all your important information in the cloud with access from any device

Pros: I have been using OneDrive for keeping my important data safe in this best cloud storage. Which gives us some free space for initial use. The good thing I like about It I can be used it 24/7 anywhere I want and it lets me access my data on any device. It keeps the backup of my data in a superb way. For collaborating this application is wonderful. I often share large size files and it has the best security system which lets the person open that file whom I want to share with. So that's why I have a great experience with OneDrive.

Cons: One Drive has a sufficient customer service team, but my issue is unresolved. That is the free version gives free cloud storage but I do not know after keeping some data it fills up and show I have no space limit. I do not have any other problem except I have mentioned. Huh, But if I tell about other things it has come with outstanding features

Pros: Overall, a good cloud-based storage solution. I use it for all of my windows related storage and love how cost effective it is. The tiered programs are available at great prices, especially compared to Dropbox (which I also like!), and far better than Apple's cloud options. Linking updates from one computer to another is easy and managing permissions is simple. It's a great choice, especially if you are using Windows-based systems. I'd say for Apple users, Dropbox is best. Again, I use both and see the merit in keeping multiple options.

Cons: Sometimes problems arise with duplicate files and merge issues, especially between devices. There are many cases where files that were created locally on my main desktop or laptop are uploaded to the cloud and for some reason become no longer accessible on the local machine they came from! This has definitely posed some serious issues when internet connectivity was not available when traveling, I have also had problems with customizing update settings and get cases where out of date files seem to persist. Dropbox does have the edge in many of these issues. Furthermore, the online portal to access OneDrive can be somewhat cumbersome when dealing with images and large files.

Pros: Accessible from anywhere you have internet access. Being able to access your stored documents from anywhere you have internet access is immensely important when you are either always traveling or make need to access files at any given time from any type of device (desktop PC, laptop, tablet, mobile phone). Its' ease of access combined with the integration of MS Office products, such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint add to the convenience as you can edit the documents straight from the cloud. Also, the ability to restore deleted documents or revert to previous versions adds to the convenience.

Cons: Unable to delete folders that contain documents within. You cannot delete an entire folder structure that contains documents within it. This is often a good thing as it prevents you from accidentally deleting everything you have, but if you have a folder that contains multiple files and folders within it and YOU DO want to delete them all you cannot just simply delete the root folder and with it all its sub-folders and files.

Pros: I really like how you can configure multiple OneDrive syncing folders on a single machine. For instance, I have my personal OneDrive account synced on MacBook Pro as well as my OneDrive for Business account that is managed by the university where I work. It's nice to keep them separate, so I don't have to worry about mixing my personal projects with my work projects. For the personal account, I also have that synced to my Xbox Live account, so any screen captures I take while playing can be uploaded to OneDrive and then shared from that folder.

Cons: The biggest learning curve I had was with syncing OneNote. OneNote has to sync using OneDrive and it syncs with the .url extension. And to delete one of those files, you have to go into the online portal for OneDrive. I had to have my Finder Window open with my OneNote app open to compare the files. It took a little bit to understand how they correlated.

Overall: I really like how everything syncs. I especially like the UI/UX for editing files in a web browser. The consistency between devices is awesome.

Comments: I like that when you pay for the more cloud drive it is priced very well. They give you a good amount of drive space. So I really recommend getting that extra service.

Pros: Let's start this off by saying that this has a desktop connection with your phone/tablet. This is an overall great app. If your working for a company that requires you to take many pictures with your phone/tablet then your off to a good start. You can just go back to the office pull up your laptop and take a look at the images. All there with no backup on your part. You can even pull up any of your files on the web.

Cons: I would like to see a faster upload of some files. Plus the worst part of this application is that you can't upload other files that end in *.exe, *.apk, or *.dmg. This at times can be an issue but then again there are other 3 party cloud servers that can help you out with that.

Pros: OneDrive is a cloud storage platform that allows you to share photos, videos and all types of files easily and simply. All options to share stored files with other users. The best of OneDrive is that it offers a free 5gb service and allows you to create backup copies of the stored content, it is also compatible with Windows, Mac, iOS, Android and Windows phone.

Cons: On a general level, I consider that this software provides an excellent service of storage in the cloud. However, there are some aspects and features that I do not like about this software, for example, in case of requiring more storage space, the user must cancel an additional cost that can sometimes be quite high.

Overall: I have had a good experience with this software, I use it often and it allows me to store documents and share them with my colleagues at work. In addition, with automatic backups, our information is always protected and protected. Is incredible!

Pros: - Really simple to use and backup local computer files online

- OneDrive does a great job for file sharing on large files without the need for FTP software

- Drag and Drop interface in your browser or use Windows Explorer

- Inexpensive options with Office 365 or by buying directly through OneDrive

Cons: - It is processor intensive and when it starts running it can dominate the CPU; during the day it is not so bad while working. It usually only happens right at start up when the software is double check the OneDrive folder on your computer for changes

- OneDrive mobile app is a bit lacking and does not have the same quality feel as the browser interface

Overall: I have used OneDrive for my business for years and recommend it happily. The service runs great and I have never had a problem with it. I can even say it has saved my butt on multiple occasions by giving me access to a file I thought I had lost. I highly recommend it to anyone.

Pros: The ease of use all Microsoft products specially with Microsoft onenote which is mostly used by me to record notes and all the meetings as well as all the documents are clicked and saved on onenote , and which was store automatically on onedrive this is the most important feature which I am satisfied call the onedrive cloud based directory and it can also be used with many other products of Microsoft like open lens it can also be synced with onedrive easily and through onedrive we can connect to every software of Microsoft and can easily we collaborated with the team as well as shared with others through link sharing, etc.

It can be accessed through desktop application ,mobile application as well as through internet browsers which can support HTML5.

Cons: The pricing of the software is which I hate the most because to purchase user base licence for this as well as other Microsoft products simultaneously which is very much costly.

Overall: It helps me to connect Microsoft products into one which is not possible till this software is released and can be shared data from one application to another application through onedrive , as it is used as a file directory for all the applications connected to a user account.

Pros: The complete suite of Microsoft OneDrive is one of the most used software for me, the suite gives you the entire control of your documents, attached to your account. The onlie editors are completely functional and adapted to the stand alone software. The integration with some other tools like Trello or some platforms are a good plus. The amount of storage for the payed suite is a great stuff, it have more than 1tb of space. Integration with company emails are very easy to setup, and fast to place.

Cons: Sometimes the load time of the online suite can be slow. The amount of storage of the free version is very small against other similar software, but it can be increased.

Overall: Easy use of the suite of the empresarial version. The tools and some features are great to create, edit and share content. Control version and versatility to have the content in hand is a great extra without too many costs.

I use it every single day and I'm no longer afraid if my computer dies.

Pros: - I have everything saved to it, nothing on my laptop/computer's drive. If you have good connection, it immediately uploads.

- It came with the Microsoft suite, so I get 1TB of space and it's completely convenient.

- I'm able to grab documents on my phone as well. If I'm ever out, and need some important info quickly, I can login and find what I need

Cons: - I don't really like the fact that everything you save onto OneDrive also saves to your computer, so I have to be checking that my laptop still has enough memory. You can choose for it to not save your laptop, but then it would mean that I would just throw all my info onto OneDrive. If something happens to OneDrive I can lose too much.

- Lately it's been having problems uploading and it's hard to figure out how to make the documents upload.

Overall: Convenience of finding information on the go. As long as I have my phone with me.

OneDrive integrates nicely with other Microsoft Office products and with PCs and phones.

Pros: All the Microsoft Office products recognize OneDrive and make it easy to open and share documents. The document icons in Windows Explorer show the sync status of documents so you know that your documents have been uploaded to the cloud. For regular documents, it is seamless. It is very easy to share documents inside your organization and outside and is easy to sign up if you don't already have an enterprise account.

Cons: OneDrive was buggy for a while but seems to have become very stable. You can't determine which folders you want to sync to the cloud.

Overall: Bundled licensing makes OneDrive essentially free for enterprise use. We encourage our users to use it for their local documents on their laptops. This makes OneDrive their backup solution for their laptop in case it gets lost/stolen or in case the hard drive fails. It's the quickest/easiest way to share documents outside the enterprise with vendors/customers/partners.

Pros: What is good with Onedrive is that it allows me to backup my docs on any device and access them from any device, and it sync my stuff, docs, files photos etc. I can also share my stuff with others which is good and I think the service is actually secure which is a big plus. I also like that it auto sync my content this feature is convenient as I know I would have forgotten to set the backup and sync to on.

Cons: That to get more storage comes at a cost. The option for additional storage at a cost is a little of a disadvantage but I guess nothing good is for free.

Pros: This software is very easy to setup and use since the sync client is built into the Office 2016 product. I have a personal OneDrive account and a OneDrive for Business account. I use both accounts everyday and have very minimal issues. The syncing is seamless and happens in the background, so the user doesn't need to be aware the software is running. The client has been updated in recent years to be much more robust. I have a less issues with the sync client than I did a few years ago. This works best for Microsoft file types since it's able to do a delta sync for changes only.

Cons: The sync client doesn't seem to work well for some file types. We have users that use Autodesk products that found the sync to be very slow, because it cannot do a delta sync of these file types.

Overall: Syncing all my personal and business documents to all my devices is very easy.

Pros: OneDrive has the best storage to price ratio of any solution I know. It is also the only one integrated into SharePoint, so if you already have everything in Sharepoint. One Drive provides versioning of files that are created in the Microsoft Suite. No more "lost" or overwritten files. It shows you who last edited documents and even allows two or more people to work on one file at the same time. We use this service as the shared content library for our global go-to-market teams. This is the central repository for all our sales and marketing collateral which is managed by the product marketing team.

Cons: Syncing has some oddities, like if the wrong kind of punctuation mark is in the file name. Creating one shared pot for global access does not seem possible without some goofy workarounds. Content control and mobile access are limited.

It is like one of the best things they could ever come up with espically since I break or lose my phones all the times and used to have to deal with loss of contacts and pics. this software saves your pics, files and videos on any device automatically as long as you have it set up like that in settings. Than you can upload or look at any file or pic from whatever device you are using and even download them at a click of a thumb. Pretty cool program

Cons: I really dont have nothing to say about this software I use the free version with like 15 gb you can have more if you pay for it but that amount works out perfect for me. I recommend everyone learn and use the one drive program.

Overall: In summary like I said this software helps you to keep track of all your pics, files and videos with no problem, from any device and they can be easily accessible.

Pros: One of the best things about OneDrive is its inclusion with Office 365. Given that I already pay for the Microsoft Office Suite, OneDrive only serves to increase the total benefit gained by these programs. More than anything, I love OneDrive because it saves my files even when I lose them from my PC. My HDD crashed several years ago and I have the documents I needed all this time later thanks to OneDrive. Alone, the fact that a document can be saved to a virtual cloud and downloaded at a later time makes OneDrive an amazing application. As well, collaborative work is much easier with OneDrive. The ability to share documents with coworkers makes OneDrive the most enjoyable aspect of teamwork. With integrated Office support, group members can download work product, make comments/changes, then re-upload the document back to the OneDrive.

Cons: Likely the main con for users would be the storage capacity. Thankfully, the cost to upgrade is less than a dime a day and is not likely to be topped out too quickly!

Overall: It's OneDrive!! I have been a loyal user of OneDrive from high school to law school and I love the simplicity with which I can upload and download a document between multiple devices.

Pros: A friend of mine put me on to One Drive. Since I began using it, it has become my go to for documents. I write and put all of my writings on there. It allows me access wherever I go and on multiple devices. I have OneDrive on my laptop, my iPad and my phone and I use it on all of those devices. It converts to Word seamlessly and I truly appreciate that.

I also teach multiple classes and having access to my folders when I am in class rather than having to remember a flash drive is a huge benefit. With technology being what it is today, all my classes have computers and projectors connected in the room, being able to pull up OneDrive and access what I need is nice.

OneDrive offers easy upload when I have documents or files that I want to put on there as well.

Cons: There isn't much I dislike about this software.

Pros: Allows easy access to documents anywhere, on any device. Super convenient. Better than lugging around reams of paper. Also allows you to work from home on snow days, or sick days.

Another good feature is the ability to share documents with others in the office. After a bit of setting up, you can have one place where everyone can save their documents and access everyone else's documents, without having to manually share each one.

In terms of value, its cheaper to pay for a OneDrive subscription than it is to rent out another room in a building to store paper in filing cabinets. In terms of security, you have better security than on your own server. You can store it all online on Microsoft's secure servers.

Cons: It has the typical Microsoft bugs, and requires some expertise to set up correctly. You will need to have your proverbial "IT guy" to set everything up. If you need to reboot someone's computer, might need to do that all over again. And you might get one of those bugs that no one - not even anyone at Microsoft - seems to know the answer to.

It also relies on having a fast internet connection to work properly.

Pros: Google and Microsoft both offer reliable, fast storage in the cloud. Both offer free accounts OR paid business account that increases storage and brings to life other features. Onedrive has been providing cloud storage for a number of years. They are able to run on a number of different operating systems and devices. What makes OnDrive unique its ability to leverage and integrate Microsoft's Web Apps (Office365). Because OneDrive has the same feel as other Microsoft Apps it reduces training and support.

Cons: Security can be an issue with any Cloud storage, requiring users to do everything they can to secure on their end. There are additional apps that will help with security but usually you have to pay. Over the years OneDrive decrease its initial Free storage from 15 GB now to 5 GB.

Overall: Cloud Storage, access anywhere, from any device.

Very much useful, but not the best.

Pros: I like the integration that is has with other Microsoft tools, like Outlook attachments and other Office tools, you don't need to download files and then send them by other means, your files are synced up and available to every tool. This is so great!

Cons: This kind of tools doesn't seem to be so complicated, I mean, in a very simple manner: you have your device and your files, then you need a tool to 1. list the files inside the sync folder, 2. check with an on-line database for changes, 3. decide whether it needs to 3.1 delete, 3.2 update, 3.3 create, 3.4 others, like move, rename, etc. and finally 4. execute the download / upload. It must be made in every device, ok. So, why it depends too much on network specific conditions to do this? Depends on strange ports, strange protocols... The point here is that One Drive don't work or won't work in some faulty conditions where Dropbox or Google Drive would.

Overall: Productivity, information centralization, organization and control over my business documents and attachments.

Pros: The value of OneDrive for Office 365 is that (depending on your O365 license type) it is included for no additional charge. You get lots of storage (they are always increasing the limit) and great collaboration. Sharing files with teammates and with people outside your organization are both easy.

Apps are ubiquitous. You can access your OneDrive content from virtually any platform.

File sync to the desktop means your files are always accessible, even without an internet connection.

Cons: Interface can be a little buggy at times. The desktop software doesn't seem to be as polished as the mobile apps and web versions, nor as other desktop file sync clients.

Overall: Great collaboration and easy sharing of files.

The service connects with MANY different outside systems for a seamless experience on multiple platforms and access from other software.

Pros: Our company started using OneDrive when we migrated to Office 365. I began using it right away to store all of the files that I use for daily work and projects. I do some video work for our company, so some files are very large. OneDrive has handle things great! I've had to switch computers about 3 times over the last couple years and I never have to worry about losing any files, because they sync to the new laptop as soon as I login. We have a huge storage limit, so no worries there. You can choose which files to sync to your desktop in order to save some space locally. The web interface is nice and accessible from anywhere. OneDrive makes working from home easier as well.

Cons: There have been some minor syncing issues. Nothing that has caused me to lose a file, however, it will show some files as not synced that are really synced. Also, the speed of syncing has been inconsistent at times.

Overall: File backup, syncing, remote access, cloud storage, integration with Office 365.

OneDrive has allowed me to access files and Photos from any device where ever I am.

Pros: I like that OneDrive is free and it offeres over 15GB of space from Microsoft. I have always been comfortable with Microsoft products as I find that to be safe and I really do thinks its one of the safest cloud platform for storage. I also like that it has never altered by saved files, photos and ducuments which I very comforting.

Cons: What I don't like about Microsoft Onedrive is that after the 15GB you must pay for storage, well I never gone over this limit and I hope I never will. Sometimes it can be a bit slow, but apart from these its a pretty good tool.

Pros: The user interface is very user friendly and is comparable across the number of devices that I use it on from Microsoft products, to general PCs to iMac, iPad and iPhone the OneDrive software is very easy to use.

The ability to share documents and collaboratively work on them is an extremely useful feature which I use on a daily basis when working with members of my department.

The huge amount of storage available to business users is a huge bonus!

Cons: The shared documents area in the 'shared with me' menu can become very cluttered and you are not able to sort or organise these into files as you only have the ability to 'hide' a file from the list. This means that if you are sharing a large numbers of documents with a large number of people it can become very difficult to find the file you are looking for.

excellent tool to store my files and have them at hand always, very useful for windows users.

Pros: as it is from Microsoft, it integrates perfectly with windows applications and very especially with office 365.

You can save your office files directly in the cloud easily.

has mobile application for windows phone, android and ios.

allows sharing and working collaboratively, you can assign editing and reading permissions to other users.

directly stores screen captures in the application's image folder, which makes it easy to find them.

Cons: Little storage space in free accounts (5 GB) compared to similar cloud services.

File sharing options are less intuitive and appear to be hidden.

When the desktop application is installed in order to access the files, all the computers must have the same version of windows.

Overall: backup my most important documents in the cloud directly from office and automatically save my photos and screenshots.

Pros: Its great to have one only place to put all the docs from the company, and be able to manage different access to different employees to each folder or "place" in the companys Drive. To work remotely it's perfect as well, it has a security was to make sure it's you who is accessing the files by sending text message to your phone with verification code, which i find great.

Cons: It makes excel save the file each time you modify it, as I work in finace sometimes, as different people has access to the same file many versions with different modification can accours, the system sometimes crushes as well... Can get quite messy, or you end up saving something in a way that you would like to save and have to look it up and find the old version and save again.... Maybe this is the problem with too much technology.

Overall: I had the benefit of having files of the company all in the same place and have access from different places, besides that it's great if you have files that needs to be taken care from different people.

Pros: The integration with Windows OS is great. Being able to keep OneDrive local folder synchronized with your cloud is a real time saver. Also, the sharing features are definitely a big plus for enhanced teamwork, allowing some team mates to edit your files, and others just to view them.

Cons: I would like to have more visible, attention drawing alerts when one or more of the folders/files in the OneDrive folder is not synchronizing correctly. Users might be relaying on their files to be already online and when they try to work on them from a different location they can't find them or is an outdated version.

Overall: For the users in our organization it has been a great plus having their files online and being able to access them from anywhere just by signing into their OneDrive account. Many users have memory space limitations, others travel abroad and are not always able to bring along their laptops. They are also thrilled with the ability to share files using only a link and collaborate on said files in real time, instead of emailing them back and forth as attachments.
