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

OneDrive is one of the best system to manage online documents. Now I do not need to keep documents online and most of the information can be kept on the cloud itself using OneDrive applications. It helps keeping the backups and keeps the important information. Can be updated and access anytime from anywhere with internet access.

Cloud storage is the main purpose. Relieve some of the storage issues on the laptop by using the cloud for storage.

Pros

I am a huge Google Drive fan, so switching to OneDrive for work I was slightly hesitant. I have had a great experience. It had easy desktop sync, versioning, sharing, and 24/7 anywhere accessibility.

Cons

Not sure if it is OneDrive or not, but Word docs saved in OneDrive seem to covert oddly to PDF. Formatting does not remain intact. Also having issues with using Articulate Storyline files corrupting on the cloud.

Highly recommended !!

Pros

The free data space offered by this tool is quite unmatched. It fulfills all my need to store my pictures, videos and all other important documents. I can make several files/folders which can be organized in an easy fashion helping me to retrieve any folder at anytime.

Cons

Till date the only time I experienced an issue with this tool was when I had to transfer some data to a colleague. It took a real long time and finally I had to switch to a different tool to share the data.

One Drive is good at what it does, and if you're a stanch Microsoft Office supporter, you'll probably really love it. However, it may be worth your time to try out Google Drive and see which system you prefer.

Pros

OneDrive is a solid cloud-based solution for organizations that need an accessible space to store documents. It's very easy to navigate and organize, as you can create endless folders just as you would on your computer. It also has decent "search" capabilities, which often come in handy. I also like that on the left hand side of One Drive, there are master folders like "Photos" that are automatically updated whenever new items are added to any folder in One Drive. As someone who creates social media content, this is very useful since I can just navigate to that the "Pictures" tab and find any JPG images that people have added anywhere in our shared OneDrive.

Cons

Although OneDrive is very good, I definitely prefer the Google Drive interface. It just seems cleaner and more intuitive to me, but that may not be the case for everyone. I also find that editing documents in Google's cloud (either through Docs, Sheets, etc.) is a smoother experience than doing the same in One Drive.

I use this for work and for personal file management. You can't ask for much more--access and edit files anywhere, collaboratively, with the full functionality of the Microsoft Suite. You don't have to settle for reduced functionality with the Google Suite, OneDrive has it all.

Sometimes, there can be issues with syncing, but those are rare. The most difficult thing is explaining it to people, and getting the organizational change.

Can access all your documents from anywhere as long as they are on Onedrive. Easily share a file which others can edit and all edits are saved to original file.

The free account is not a lot of space, and they try to get you to upgrade to continue using. It's Microsoft, and I already pay for the Office products, so I wish more space was included.

A great service for cloud sync, much storage capacity that surpasses your needs, service is well integrated with Microsoft Windows, I use the service every single day!!

Pros

integrated with Windows, easy to use, very friendly to sync all your folders, ubiquitous at all your devices and places, affordable (it comes bundles with Office365 personal), capacity up to 1TB will be more than enough, many options to access your files.

Cons

just basic options to define what to sync and what not. customer service is improving but still lacks the basic quick-response from any OTA. changes, improvements and upgrades to the app is close to non-existent as it falls into Microsoft long-cycle pipeline.

Pros

I've had the chance to work with both softwares, Google Drive & OneDrive. Both have the same concept but Google Drive is way simpler and to my belief it's better to use. The organization that Google Drive has, is much better than OneDrive.

Cons

OneDrive is much complicated than Google Drive. For instance, sharing a single document with another user from the OneDrive on the computer is not possible. I would have to go online in order to that, meanwhile, Google Drive everything is at the touch of a button.

Useful if you want a set-and-forget method of file syncing.

Pros

One Drive automatically syncs files and folders that are within the One Drive folder to the cloud. There is also a built-in Windows app that is more useful to the browser interface.

Cons

The Windows app can be troublesome to manage, and you must put all the files/folders to be synced in the One Drive folder on your hard drive.

If you have had enough of dealing with OneDrive for Business, check out Zee Drive

Pros

It is easily and readily available.
It synchronizes automatically and in a streamlined way with Windows (for obvious reasons).
OneDrive for Business has some added utility.

Cons

It crashes often.
OneDrive for Business frequently experiences errors and fails to synchronize completely.
It is sometimes slow.
OneDrive for Business is an objectively inferior product to the third party alternative, Zee Drive.

I want so bad to love OneDrive, I have given it chance after chance, but it lets me down every time. If you want to use it for personal use it is fine, just not OneDrive for Business.

Pros

East access to online files and makes it easy to share. Onedrive integrates well with Windows and Microsoft office products. The software is designed to work like Dropbox and succeeds when using between only a few people.

Cons

Syncing is a nightmare, the software is a major resource hog on all PCs no matter the specs. Version history is spotty and when multiple users work on the same file. it either becomes corrupted or two versions that aren't right. I have tried to use this with several customers but always have to go to Dropbox because OneDrive simply does not work the way it should. OneDrive can also not sync #,$,* or like characters and that is a deal breaker for people who use these in their file names.

If I have the choice, I'll use Dropbox. Since this comes with O365, we use it where we can.

Pros

If you need a tool to synchronize folders for an entire team, this tool does the job, but it's more difficult to use than DropBox.

Cons

I use both OneDrive and Dropbox for different teams/contracts. OneDrive is finicky when a user has access to another Business OneDrive. Last time I checked, 2 separate OneDrive accounts were not possible, so in a consulting environment, this can be a problem.. We've also had issues with the product occasionally disconnecting, or not connecting upon startup, and files not being sync'd. Knowing this we look for it now to avoid issues, but we should not need to monitor this since it's a primary feature of the product.

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.

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.

It is a good way to backup my files. I just prefer some of OneDrive's competitors over this product. OneDrive really does shine when integrating with other Office programs but issues with updates have been very frustrating.

Pros

The biggest pro is the cost - included with our Microsoft package. It also creates a seamless connection with file explorer and the cloud that you almost forget that you saving items on the cloud. The integration with other office products makes it very appealing compared to other cloud storage options such as Dropbox or Box.

Cons

I have had a lot of issues with updates. Microsoft updates cause OneDrive to crash on me all the time. I also think that the web component is weak in aestectics and functionality compared to competitors. I use it as a backup to dropbox for data on my local machine. If it didn't come free with our package I probably wouldn't use it.

Easy to use interface, lots of storage, and a great way store files and documents.

Pros

While I've used OneDrive for several years, I've recently made it my primary online storage. While there are some easy ways to gain additional storage, the best way to get 1TB of storage with your Microsoft360 subscription. It even has auto-sync with programs, which make it even easier. It has easy ways to organize, too, including folders. I highly recommend OneDrive for storage.

Cons

While the vast majority of my experience has been positive, the interface occasionally does not upload. If you keep your eye on the countdown, it'll show you whether it's uploading or not.

Pros

Overall OneDrive is nice. It does what it's supposed to do. Usually. The consensus I've heard, which certainly matches my experience, is that personal OneDrive is built on a framework very similar to other products such as DropBox. It works well and it's stable.

OneDrive for Business is a completely different story. Oh sure, it looks like personal OneDrive, but under the hood it's very, very different. You see, OneDrive For Business is actually built on Sharepoint. Which is kinda scary if you know the history of Sharepoint. The real problem was that when we tried to implement it even in a limited testing environment it broke constantly. Files with any special character in the filename wouldn't sync, and even once we renamed all the files to make OneDrive happy it would still break. And when you would "fix" OneDrive, it would basically just abandon the old OneDrive instance completely and create a whole new share and reset everything from scratch leaving all the old broken sync data. Think of it like just appending .bak to the old folder and then leaving it there, cluttering up your file system and wasting your storage. Not cool.

Overall I gave OD 4 stars for quality because the person version is 5 star and the business version can't rate higher than 3 stars at best. So I average them out.

Cons

Kind of like I mentioned in the Pros section - that the personal version is great and the business version, at least in my experience

What I would love is really simple from onedrive, that is give more free storage and offer some for feature for single users as it does for onedrive for business. And also please bring back place holders so that Windows 10 users like myself can see what is on my other onedrive that on my computer.

Ability to collaborate with others. Additional data backup.

Pros

I use this for business and personal use. It is great that the files sync across all your devices and can be accessed offline. OneDrive is a great way to back up important files as well as share files among colleagues. The pricepoint is better than Dropbox for business, which is very costly. Included with Windows 10 and 8.1, so the cost is great if you plan to use other Microsoft 365 features. If you are a fan of Microsoft's products, you will probably like OneDrive over its competitors.

Very similar to Google Drive, which is slightly easier to use, in my opinion. Files are scanned by Microsoft prior to being put into OneDrive. Manual uploads can stall or take a long time. File naming restrictions can be frustrating.

Pros

OneDrive is a must have free cloud storage service if you do not like Google Drive or Dropbox. With OneDrive I can backup images and documents located in certain documents I choose on my PC and Android phone automatically once they are created with great upload speed thanks to OneDrive PC and Android clients that are robust. OneDrive is great for syncing files between multiple devices for example I use it to automatically sync files between my PC and laptop. I also use OneDrive to share some files with public with easy to use sharing options. Being integrated with Office, I can easily edit and create Excel spreadsheets and Word documents.

Cons

OneDrive free plan offers 5 GB of storage which is relatively small compared to Google Drive free plan which offers 15 GB however it gives you 1TB of storage for less money than Google Drive does.

OneDrive free plan does not include encryption of files on the server side leaving the files exposed to Microsoft employees and anyone who manages to breach the server.

Pros

I don¿t have to worry about losing my personal items when I update my phone or other devices, very easy for me to transfer documents, pictures etc between devices.

Cons

I use it with my phone and iPad, but I guess I have to buy and update version to switch between devices, but that¿s not too much of an issue.

Everything you need is easily accessible. Cloud storage is very handy to avoid using space on your computer and files are easily attached to an email when you need them.

Cons

The interface could be more intuitive, but that's come to be expected with most of Microsoft's products.

Huge, always on cloud storage.

Pros

The speed and reliability of the storage and the flexibility on all my devices. They've been a bit flip-floppy in the last few years about being 1TB or unlimited, but it's still a really good value for what you're getting.

Cons

The flip flopping about storage space that forced me to relocate some of my data. And the interface is still a bit blah. But it's been rock solid for reliability.

Pros

It can be used and worked from online from anywhere, similar to google docs. It is a fail safe way to back up files as well.

Cons

I do not find it as easy to use as google docs. Many people use google docs so I am forced to have two different places to keep and share work. An interface would be nice.
