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.

We used this product after having already purchased a full MS Office Suite, which I imagine most people will. If I were starting from scratch, I probably would be more judgmental.

Pros

OneDrive was a very welcome solution to our need for "shared drives" within my team. We had a failed trial with AWS, and turned to OneDrive as the bandaid solution. I would say the pros are that it is seamless, in that my users don't really need to know the details of OneDrive, just to click the folders I set up for them.

Cons

We have noticed a few issues where the sync is not perfectly correct, though I can't figure out exactly why and it hasn't caused any problems. The greatest concern we had is that users can accidentally send a link to a OneDrive document instead of the document itself. A real problem, because the user then can't open the file. I discovered a workaround which involved my changing the ribbon access my users had, so they could only use the attach tool that inserted the doc itself.

I will be using it for work and personal use for quite some time. It is extremely useful!

Pros

I like the convenience of having it available with some free memory, although for my purposes I needed to buy additional storage, 1 terabyte. For the price its a great value. It is easy enough to use if you are familiar with PC/Windows environments/operating systems. There is really only one downside to it that I have seen, see Cons.

Cons

In order to work on documents/files you have uploaded to OneDrive, you have "download" them onto the computer you are using....which takes quite awhile in some instances. I don't think they take up additional space on the hard drive of the computer, and may be more of an internet/speed issue than an issue with the software itself.

I like to concept with a little more tweaking.

Pros

OneDrive allows you to share documents and view pages from another location. You can view and edit documents from home. There is lots of storage available.

Cons

It could be more user friendly. A tutorial would be very helpful to navigate around the software. It allows others to edit original shared documents without clearance from the originator.

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.

Overall, a quality, safe, and nice service with lots of storage available.

Pros

Another great product from Microsoft. I have purchased a larger storage plan but it wasn't that expensive and I got Office 365 for free for the year. I store all my videos, photos, documents, etc. and still have plenty of storage to grow.

Cons

I have found that sharing my folders or documents don't always seem to share well. I don't know if it's the recipient end or something I am doing and haven't found much help in what could be going wrong.

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 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.

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.

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

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.

The ability to access all Microsoft Suite documents with full functionality wherever I am.

Pros

I travel a lot and need access to financial tracking and work related documents. It's imperative that I update these frequently as to see trends in data. I use OneDrive to have access to Excel documents that have full functionality. I'm able to have full VBA capacity wherever I am and know that it's backed up.

Cons

From what I've seen so far, there is no way to have multiple OneDrive accounts on a desktop app. It would be nice to have access to both my work and personal documents without signing out of one and into another. While it's not a major deterrent, it would be nice to have.

The best thing about this software is my ability to access it from where I am. It has helped me tremendously in all areas of my life and allows me to do complete work on the go.

Cons

I cannot think of anything that I do not like about this software. I find it incredibly useful and have had very few issues with it.

Pros

It offers free storage and is easy to use for every kind of user. It is compatible with every other Microsoft platform (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc.) so that makes it easy to work with as well.

Cons

It has a couple of advertisements and it isn't as nice to look at as Google Docs. Sometimes the syncing can be glitchy. Storage capacity is smaller than I need.

Keeping my critical files in sync between my multiple devices was key.

Pros

Using the Microsoft cloud as the main repository and being able to keep your files in sync between multiple PCs and having access to files via mobile devices.

Cons

Setup can be confusing when trying to keep specific folders in sync. Not all files are easily synced and cause notifications that can be confusing as to why the files are not synced.

OneDrive seems like a superfluous program considering all the other more ingrained options for cloud

Pros

Specifically optimized for Microsoft programs, One Drive is definitely compatible with the microsoft programs it boasts. Plus, there's 1 TB of storage included which is a ton.

Cons

It just seems like a waste of money since there are so many other free options available for storage or for cheap. However, if you get it for free with a suite, it's worth giving it a shot.

Pros

OneDrive is easy to work with and syncs directly to Windows 10 so it feels like you're working directly from the local hard drive. It previously had sync issues but I haven't had any since I upgraded to Windows 10. I can access my files from any device, especially if my laptop is lost or damaged.

Cons

Sometimes you can run into syncing errors or random errors where it wants your credentials and the wizard provided does not work properly to allow you to resolve the issues.

Little as I have to do a backup on external hard disk because one drive generally doesn't work!

Pros

That you can see previous files on iPhone that are stored in the office folders when phone is linked to the computer

Cons

The one drive app in Mac does not work at all - no consistency of connection at all. Very poor and takes ages to refresh the saving of files
