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

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.

Similar functionality to Dropbox, drive, etc, with fairly seamless integration in windows. Integrates well with Office products, making it very easy to use. Possible to get some promosional space.

Cons

Cost can be significant if you need more space than the default. The app is mostly good, but sometimes reconnects and takes over your screen

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.

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.

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. The first time I used it was when I grabbed the wrong PC - my Powerpoint presentation wasn't there, but it was on OneDrive. Wow, what a relief. My OneDrive files saved the day.

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!

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.

As an apple user, I find this product very difficult to navigate of the cloud systems I prefer. It seems it is hard to direct and also separate files for different needs - like work or home.

Pros

Great if you're using a PC

Good Tool for storing your files

Ease-of-use

Product Quality

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.

Recommendations

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.

Good for personal use, but be careful when using for work. Keep only on one computer/device.

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.

OneDrive allows you to sync your files from your computer to the cloud and it works fine, we do occasionally get the odd file that has a conflict due to being open on multiple devices but in the end it sorts itself out.

When we talk about the ease of use the cloud storage have made for us to access anything anywhere, Onedrive brings about integration of all different platforms accessible hassle free. The best feature I like about Onedrive is data loss protection. I think every window user might want to use Onedrive because of the capabilities of fast syncing it offers. While many businesses use the cloud-based storage for them, the system can also be deployed as an on-premise platform installed on their servers. While using onedrive I have made drastic improvements regarding the safety of data and ease of access. Every second person on google is talking about how to make business collaboration a success. Onedrive can be used differently for different business. they have plans on monthly and annual subscription basis. User satisfaction is must when we are buying a product. Some features of sharefile are missing in onedrive which when included will get them a bigger hand in business. I however use Onedrive for my company files sharing system. Good work devs!!

Pros

Data loss protection is given in onedrive which is the best feature in it's class. Multiple device support is also a good move by onedrive.

Cons

Missing features like those provided by sharefile of custom branding and reporting.

Advice to Others

An professional can think of ways in which he want his business to progress and in that scenario I think weighted decision can be made for which file share system should be used by the business. I vote Onedrive for delivery of simple features but it needs a little improvement.

After clearing the list of cloud storage products to find which one would be best I thought that Google drive would come out on top, but after a month of onedrive usage I switched completely.
With Microsoft account integration I am able to access all of my documents from work and home easily with a single sign on. This becomes even better with the new addition of Windows 10 microsoft account linking including onedrive with it.

Add in the free storage space you get for backing up your mobile phones photos to it and we have a clear winner.

Easy cross platform, windows 10 support, free space for mobile users

I have been using OneDrive since it came out and was known as SkyDrive. OneDrive is reliable, fast and easy to use, however it is limited in storage options. While everybody else offers unlimited storage, Microsoft decided to remove the unlimited plan from OneDrive and limit everybody to a paltry 1Tb of storage. You also get access to Microsoft Office online which is a limited version of the Office suite that lets you create and do basic edits to documents and presentations.

Pros

Fast
Easy to use
Reliable
Office online FREE

Cons

Limited to 1Tb storage
Microsoft removed the unlimited storage option

Its better than just about any other storage provider, unless you have more than 1Tb of data.

I use One Drive every single day. I use it every day because it works. I have been pleased with the way One Drive handles my file storage and management needs. I am constantly storing files and retrieving them, often from locations outside my office, and that makes it a huge plus.

Pros

The ability to store and manage files, and then to retrieve them from another location, including a mobile app. This makes business on the run possible.

Cons

Overall, One Drive has been really helpful, so I don't really have any criticism at this point.

Advice to Others

Check into it as an option for file storage and management, especially if you need to share files and access them from a mobile app.

One of the finest cloud storage apps in the market. I had it inbuilt in my Lumia and whatever picture I used to click, it went straight to the cloud. I had automatic backup to all media files without any compromise in quality.

Pros

Highly efficient. Easy to use.

Cons

You could always ask for more space for less money ;)

Advice to Others

The best cloud storage app in the market. Go for it.

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.

Advice to Others

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.

I have been using this for a couple of years now. I have tried dropbox but was not impressed. This app is VERY easy to use and manage. I have this set up as folders on my computer and also on my phone and other devices I own. The ability to be able to open things up and have them only really be in one location is nice. I like having the ability to make files available off line if I need to. This app has been very useful for my work life!

Pros

I love the ability to make files available off-line or ONLY online.

Cons

If you don't have things available off-line then you will not have access to them.

Google Drive and OneDrive , both are my favorite cloud storage services. I love Google Drive because its a service from Google and i love OneDrive because its owned by Microsoft.

Like other popular cloud storage service providers, OneDrive will automatically save a backup copy of our files. We can save our files with whomever we want and whenever. One of the huge benefits of OneDrive is we can use Microsoft Office online for free with in the service.

Pros

Everyone will get 15 GB free while sign up for the account and will get a 3 GB camera bonus while you turn on auto uploading option through OneDrive apps for your mobile devices.

Cons

I heard that that some files can get altered when they are synced or uploaded to OneDrive.
