Benchmark in Cloud File Sharing and Collaboration.

I'm pretty sold on OneDrive due to it's key integration across the Office family. I use both Windows and MacOS and have to say MS do need to up their game on their offering to Mac users. The experience is still integrated and seamless but OneDrive interface lacks the depth of its Windows counterpart. Pricing is negated when part of the 365 Suite and you get 1TB too (readers to check at time of reading). Taken on its own, you can probably find cheaper storage solutions per buck but you may lack security and collaboration tools. OneDrive works extremely well on mobile devices too and makes document management on the go, easy. It's ability to collect a file from any PC you've setup a OneDrive folder one is hugely beneficial.

Pros

I rate OneDrive highly due to the safe-guarding/keeping features, the straightforward nature of One Drive and the intuitive UI. If you are fully integrated with Office then it provides a seamless experience to connect all Office apps for collaboration and synchronisation. I need files across various devices and OneDrive provides apps for all popular desktop OS's and device. Specific areas in order of importance: Security - As a minimum I have 2-factor authentication on everything and OneDrive utilises this too. Even if your password is blacklisted and weak then you have the safety of the MS Authenticator App on mobile and email with the former working on my Apple Watch, which is a great feature. For the ultimate protection you use OneDrive's Personal Vault feature, AES 256-bit encrypted on Microsoft’s servers and controlled by PIN for chosen folders. Sharing & Security - The ability to drop your files or folders in a OneDrive folder on one device, it is then duplicated on all the devices which have the OneDrive folder installed. A great feature that is lacking with icloud and Google Drive is the ability to Password protect and set expiration dates. Photo management - This is more personal than business. One Drive includes really rich photo management attributes. OneDrive emulates iCloud (vice versa) and OD auto-uploads pics & videos from my smartphone's camera roll. It saves small Kb versions on your phone that can be downloaded for full resolution if needed.

Cons

Storage - If you take it as a stand alone I would say that there are better options for storage capacity relative to OneDrive, for price versus storage. I have yet to experience the issue myself, but I have had colleagues who have claimed that they cannot gain access to folders or files that are shared and password protected. OneDrive lets MacOS down with it's less inspiring offering.

Reasons for switching to OneDrive

As a team, we did not seem to gel using Dropbox as some found issues with syncing and sharing files. The filling/folder process and mapping did not always seem intuitive. We had used DropBox due to initially having it as an API with SignRequest, but didn't always find this reliable, but it was a great feature to have.

A simple and efficient solution for storing your files on Cloud

Very satisfied.

Pros

The software is very quiet and doesn't eat much resources. The files are saved on Cloud in the background seamlessly and you can access them any time on your local machine just like you would access any other file. I currently get 1024 GB on my account which I find more than sufficient, and it may vary from subscription to subscription.

Cons

I have used other applications with similar features as well, but I think OneDrive does what it's suppose to without any hiccups. No Cons at the moment.

file destroyer

program came with new laptop. automatically backed up computer files recently transferred but without adivising or given permission deleted multiple important files from laptop hard drvie and corrupted all backed up files in cloud storage. the amount of cloud storage provided for free was very minimal and the cost to upgrade storage is not worth a monthly fee let alone a one time fee, useing a external storage drive was more cost efffective and more secure then what this program provided

Pros

was easy to disable and quit useing, cloud for windows

Cons

bloat that comes with windows, destroyed important files, back up feature doesnt work correctly, very limited cloud storage for free,
