OneDrive Software


 

OneDrive is a cloud-based content management solution that provides organizations with a platform to collaborate, share and store documents. This system enables cross-platform synchronization and prevents data loss.

OneDrive allows users to collaborate and share documents in real-time with team members and clients, and managers can access, review and edit. It assists users in file management by restricting file access within teams and organizations. In addition, the system shares real-time notifications whenever a file is viewed or edited.

OneDrive auto-tags photos by detecting visuals saved in the cloud that makes them easier to search and organize. In addition, the solution enables users to share and access files 24/7 from any mobile device.

OneDrive provides free storage up to 5GB and is available on Windows, Android and iOS devices.

Pros

I use OneDrive for Business and it has helped my very large department tremendously. We have several spreadsheets that many of our team members use and now we don't have to wait for one person to finish using the spreadsheet before someone else can enter. Many of us use OneNote as well and we now can share pages/notes etc. We have just started using this product and cannot wait to use it's full functionality. This is an excellent tool for business!

Pros

Works as you want it but better, very easy to setup and use. Using it over a year with no issues. The programme hides in the background and syncs your files to the cloud without slowing down your PC and it does not kill your internet bandwidth.
you have the option to view and save files offline and anywhere from the one drive link online. this can be on any other computer or mobile device.
One drive is owned by Microsoft so you know that your files are very secure.
If you need to use it for back up, you can have the option to only save your files online so that you don't take up too much space on your local hard disk

Cons

None, I have been using this software over a year with no issues what so ever. Easy to use but it has many functions which sometimes you don't know about unless someone tells you about it or you find out by looking into it.

Had a really difficult time connecting to OneDrive with my PC, and was unable to sync my laptop with the company Drive. The Help function was useless and it was going to take too long to sit on hold for customer service, so I just opted not to enable auto-sync. As a company, we ended up moving to Sharepoint instead of using OneDrive because a lot of us had trouble with the auto-sync.

Cons

Design not intuitive, help options not useful.

Ease-of-use

N/A

I use OneDrive mainly for collaboration on documents. One drive makes it very easy for multiple people to work on the same document at the same time.

I do like the ability Onedrive gives me to collaborate, and work on documents while I am away from the office.

OneDrive is an easy platform to use. We did have a little difficulty getting access to it, but I think that because of our companies set up. Once the permissions were set up correctly, it was been easy to use. Our office has users from tech novices to tech experts. We have found that even the tech novices can use OneDrive with little or no explanation.

The only drawback that we have experienced at all is that some of our excel documents have inexplicably, increased in size while we are entering data. At one point, our excel file jumped from 5.5 mg of data to 62.5 mg of data. In order to use it, we had to either download it or delete some of the newer versions and enter the data again.

I do like the ability to delete all versions or pick and choose which versions of work I would like to delete. I also like the ability to edit on or offline.



Pros

The biggest proof OneDrive is the ease of use. There is really no training needed.

I like the effortless way OneDrive updates and keeps everything in one place that can be accessed across devices. There is a minimum of 15GB storage space available, but you can buy more storage space at a very reasonable price. I was reluctant to use it at first as I was more familiar with other cloud-based solutions. However, when I needed to be able to access files in two separate locations I found out how easy it can be. I tried using a thumb drive to access files for the last minute presentation. I almost panicked when I realized the file was corrupted - until I remembered everything was also on OneDrive. I simply logged in and everything I needed was there. This is a very convenient tool that really came through when I needed it most.

Pros

Easy access, cloud-based file access, and sharing.

Cons

Accessing on multiple devices requires that you are mindful not to overwrite what you have saved from another device/location.

Advice to Others

Try it! You will be surprised how far 15GB goes when it comes to documenting storage and sharing.

I was reluctant to use OneDrive at first, but not now. It's great. At first, I thought it was just another cloud-based storage, but it's not. OneDrive has saved the day for me on numerous occasions.

I used Microsoft OneDrive both personally and professionally. You can store your files for free up to 15gb on any device (it works just as well with Mac/IOS). This is a great value for free storage. After that, it is still relatively cheap. It essentially allows you to sync all your files into one place that is visible on any device. Once concern is that I get nervous about multiple Microsoft accounts and data security; however, that is more of a personal question as to whether you trust "the cloud." This is a great product for those who want to store information that will be easily accessible by multiple individuals in an organization or for someone who is simply trying to get rid of clutter on their current devices and need a cheap alternative to some of the more sophisticated software.

Pros

Free use for up to 15 gb, syncs in live time

Cons

Not really any cons, you know what you get for a great price

Advice to Others

You can give the product a try at a lower level (up to 15gb) and decide if it is right for you!

I briefly switched over to this platform because it was a cheaper option than what I was currently using. I found that it served my purposed of file sharing and even went above some of my expectations with the notification system. However, I was not a fan of the formatting and layout of the system.

Pros

The ease of giving access to various files to multiple people. Also, uploading large files is quick with no lag time to be viewed by other users.

Current usage daily on mobile, tablet, and desktop in construction industry. Our team utilizes OneDrive for viewing blueprints, requests for information, uploading and posting submittals. Mostly an internal sharing platform for project team and company wide microsoft documents, excel documents and pdfs.

All the best of Google Docs - in a professional industry software.

Pros

- Cloud based sharing & viewing
- User ease to upload and download large file sizes
- Multiple user updating at the same time

Cons

- Internet based - changes can get lost if the internet gets dropped.

Advice to Others

Most efficient for large corporations and big project teams.
Excel editing while multiple team members are in the same documentation editing in real time = game changer.
Spent the upfront time training for your employees to avoid multiple calls at a later date.

OneDrive is a great tool for storing your files. With Windows 10 they have made it easier to get it set up and running for your use. Being that it is a Microsoft product you can trust that your data will be safe.

Pros

Easy sync setup for those who don't necessarily have a lot of data on there computers. There are great ways to add extra storage but be careful as most are for a year only and then you go back to the standard storage. it is any easy tool to use to sync and access your files from multiple locations. Great free tool from Microsoft for most users, and if you are using multiple Microsoft Office programs it is a great way to share and save your info.

Cons

Be careful logging in to your Microsoft account on more than one PC as it may try and sync to that computer as well. If you have a ton of data stored in OneDrive it can eat up your bandwidth and your storage on that PC as it try's to sync your content. OneDrive has become much better sense it's launch but take a look at your data storage needs first.

Advice to Others

Take a look at your storage needs first. Make sure that this is going to meet those needs and that you are not going to run out and be stuck in a situation of trying to figure out were you are moving next or how to add extra storage. Make sure the files you sync are all necessary in these cases. It is worth signing up for the other trial offers and getting the extra storage as these products can and will help you. Overall OneDrive is a great tool

The number one advantage of this product is that its supported by Microsoft. Microsoft will continue to support this product, so you do not have to worry about losing your data or running into major issues.

The software works very similar to any other cloud based system, but being integrated into the OS is very helpful. No additional Apps to slow your system down.

Likes Least

If you are trying to use a Mac with this product, it works, but not as good as on a PC. This is to be expected.

I recommend trying out this software, as well as the competitors such as dropbox or google drive to see which software you like the best.

Great across microsoft platforms but a little confusing to use. Good for cloud storage but the syncing takes up a lot of space and very hard to tell the program what to sync. I have my work drive that sync with my personal drive sometimes.

The syncing is very hard to use when needing to use for multiple purposes like work and personal uses. Everything syncs together and I can't have that on my work drive.

Included with Windows 10 and compatible with Microsoft Office suite and other frequently used programs. We actually use it in an online education environment by hosting our OneNote shared files through OneDrive. I like how free storage is offered to a point, and there is a lot of help available on online forums.

Likes Least

You don't get a whole lot of space for free. We mostly share PDFs amongst teachers. Sometimes they can get really large. We have to constantly clean out our folders and back them up so we don't have to pay for extra storage. The nice thing is though, it really works pretty well as long as you're not doing anything fancy. Just try not to move files around too much - folders stop syncing if you mess with it.

Recommendations

There are a TON of options out there. We've evaluated Box, Dropbox, OneNote, OneDrive, SharePoint, and Google Drive. None of them are perfect. Consider how much space you need first. Then look for reliability - the last thing anyone needs is having their files lost. I'd consider ease of use last. If something is harder to use but has all the functionality you need, consider it. There is a lot of help on the web through videos and forums and online support from the software developer.

There is an inherent feeling of Trust for me with OneDrive since it is a MicroSoft product, and it integrates seemlessly with my network.

Likes Least

That being said, I use it much less than I would. It is very personal cloud storage, good for backing up your photos but not moving files to clients or sending files to be output at printers etc.

Recommendations

Make sure it suits your needs before you pay for any extra storage. If you want to send links outside of your trusted circles send them to yourself first to make sure you are not giving away access to folders you don't intend, I don't know that there is much granular control here.

The best part of this product is it is completely integrated with Windows 10 as well as the office suite. I can make modifications to an office file such as word, and then send it to another colleague who can continue on in the editing process. Multiple copies do not need to be saved. It is a very fluid process

Likes Least

Sometimes the interface to try and find where to save the files to can be difficult for less savy tech people. Also they seem to constantly change how much storage you get.

Recommendations

I would see if this product would work well if you are editing office files quite often (excel, word, powerpoint), and see if you can streamline your process and make it more efficient.

All of the apps that you use within the Microsoft system are all here in one place for you to access. It is similar to that of Google's, if you are used to using that. If you use Outlook or Dynamics 365 or multiple apps in general, OneDrive provide a single place for you to access those with ease.

Cons

Occasionally, but not often, there will be duplicate versions of an application when you go to click on it. Specifically, for me, it's been Dynamics 365; it won't clarify which version is the one you normally use. Could be user error, but it's still an inconvenience.

I was able to store my work files in One Drive and it allows me to access them with different computers any time, any where. It becomes one of the most commonly used computer applications for me and I would definitely recommend this as a substitute of Dropbox. I have been using Dropbox for a long time but it charged me a lot and I eventually had to quit because I thought it was unreasonable.

Pros

1. Convenient and easy to learn, does not require prior knowledge
2. No cost to users
3. Storage space is enough for most people

Cons

1. Syncing of files has little delay sometimes
2. Uploading files to One Drive takes certain time and can be inefficient

I do have a problem remembering my password and I do find myself having to reset it a lot. This is only because I use it about once a month.

Easy file management and data security.

Pros

The file storage and sharing is made so easy. From the web portal I am able to easily access, modify, and share my document from any device anytime. I really enjoy selective sync. This helps to better manage the storage on each device I am connected to.

Cons

For basic users the selective sync can be hard to figure out. This would consume HDD space. There can be issues configuring the oneDrive and oneDrive for business on the same machine. The rules and config can get confused on occasion.

Pros

I like that you can hold documents on multiple devices without having to connect to your internal system of your company. Easy to store information you need often and readily available.

Cons

It can be difficult to use at times. Doesn't always save my information I enter, also denied my email address sometimes.

Ease of use and automated backup to the cloud without having much to worry about.

Pros

It's a piece of software that you can adjust the settings one time then just leave it to do its job behind the scenes while you work

Cons

Sometimes, I get error messages that this or that file has not been synced and I wonder why so I try to get support but it's a long time coming

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

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.
