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.

I was able to access paperwork from anywhere I had internet access. This gave me the ability to help staff even if I was away from the office.

The only con was if we lost internet access we had no way to access our documents. This was rarely an issue though.

Pros

One Drive is a great way to integrate everything in MS office universe on the cloud. It allows users to see the information they have stored without the worry of losing key data due to change in work machines or laptops

Cons

One Drive lags behinds its competitors in the cloud hosting market as it does not interface well with products outside of Microsoft.

Very easy to use and navigate. You can organize documents and photos. You can also sign, edit, and annotate PDF files, which is a plus and very convenient.

Do yourself a favor and make the switch. It is more robust than google drive. It has helped our organization grow significantly!

Pros

Our organization switched from google drive to OneDrive and I am so glad we did! It is easy to use and great for multiple users. I also love the app! It makes it so great for updating on the go!

Cons

The app is a little glitchy and doesn’t always upload the scans I make. Also it is hard to update file names once they are shared. I also wish it was visually more appealing but it serves its function!

When you buy a Microsoft 365 subscription you get 1TB to use with your OneDrive account. 1TB is more than enough for to save all my photos, files, drawings, reports, etc.

Cons

The least.....the only issue i have had is when I've gone to access a file and it is not accessible....I believe it was probably user error rather than the actual program.

If you stay in the Microsoft environment, OneDrive is great.

Pros

Sharing and accessing files on OneDrive for Business is super simple in the Microsoft Office environment, and the integration with Sharepoint and Teams is great!

Cons

If you use another cloud storage platform, OneDrive is more of an annoyance than anything else. If it's included in an O365 subscription and you use Dropbox or Box, OneDrive will go virtually unused.

Loathe paying for online storage especially when it's less expensive to buy an external hard drive to backup manually.

Pros

Online backup medium very similar to Dropbox or Google Drive.
Better for Non-iPhone users.
Basic account offers slightly more storage than Google/iCloud.

Cons

Not worth the money to upgrade the storage when some websites provide decent storage.
Heavy users may like the storage esp. non-iPhone users.
Must download app to use the service.

Great File Storage Features With Easy Sharing and Frees Up Space On Hard Drive

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A
Value for Money

Great and recommended for any personal or business use, especially being free.

Pros

The ability to store the files on your computer and on the cloud or free up space on your hard drive and access from the cloud is imperative. Files can be accessed via the file explorer on Windows or in your web browser from any device.

Cons

In order to free up space on your hard drive, you have to right click and select 'free up space' which will upload the file(s) to the cloud and remove it from your computer. This can be a minor inhibition as it is not automatically done. Also, free space is limited and rather expensive to purchase

OneDrive not bad cloud storage solution.

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

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.

It's an establish Microsoft product that usually comes bundled with your MS Office apps and allows you to backup some data to the cloud while integrating with your other MS apps pretty well. Not as user friendly as some other ones out there, but probably good for the corporate permissions/active directory environment in some cases (from the admin side).

Pros

Meh. This software is basically a file sharing and cloud storage app that is comparable to DropBox. The fact that it integrates natively with many Microsoft desktop apps is great, but DropBox does the same thing.

Cons

I don't think this app holds a candle to DropBox, because it simply doesn't have the 'one click' commands and user-friendly-ness that DropBox does. With regard to corporate security needs and integrating it with Active Directory / user permissions, it might be better, but from a user perspective, it's harder to use.

The best feature of One Drive is that you can use it from your folders menu, just as another folder on your computer. It's as easier as save or drag the documents to the folder and it's done! Also, you can access to your documents through the web tool wherever you are, and continue working like you are at your office. It's like having your office in your pocket wherever you go.

Cons

The share process could be a little tricky because the other people needs to go online and check the document or download it, it's not so easy, unless you attach the document to a mail.
