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.

A Great Software You Should Have

Overall, I believe One Drive to be a good program whether from a business or private account use. Even having to purchase one of the two mentioned services can be overlooked based on performance alone

Pros

What I like best about one drive is the fact that much like Google Drive, it allows you to organize all of your saved files, pictures, etc on a much more business orientated platform with easily recognizable folders

Cons

The only thing I do not like about this software is that if using it for a business, you are forced to use one of two account based business platforms that are pay for only sites

My memories were kept safe by onedrive

Pros

Im using onedrive for more than 5 years now. The old memories and important files are safe and its easy to use. I use it for both personal and official purposes. It allows you to share the files and images with others using a link and able to download it when ever you need.

Cons

Bigger files takes time to upload which needs to be improved

Good Enough!

Pros

Has everything you could possibly want, just not as popular as other choices!

Cons

Fewer people use it so not as much cohesion across the board. I'd rather go with Google, which is more user friendly.

Sync on any device

Pros

This software allows me to backup, store and share multiple documents with a click of a button. I love that I can access it from my phone, allowing me to upload things when I am at home or anyway from work.

Cons

Some of the options to upload, or share photos or documents can be difficult at times.

OneDrive is great!

I'm a big fan. I get access to my office documents on any computer and phone and can operate my business anywhere because of it.

Pros

Being able to access all of my Desktop Files (which are saved in a OneDrive folder) from my phone and every computer. I have access 24/7 and don't have to worry about losing files (especially when I got the blue screen of death).

Cons

At one time, I had to frequently sign in to save my documents, so I contacted support and they immediately got on my computer and solved the issue.

As good as it comes for on-the-cloud storage

I have been a user, both for personal and commercial OneDrive for several years. I like them both and have no reason to switch. I never have issues with the software and service.

Pros

Great access through phone/tablet apps, web browsers, and desktop apps. I love how it automatically syncs the file folders on my computer and my camera roll on my phone. Also does great sending links to share larger files to they don't bog down email or messaging services.

Cons

It would be better if the free version came with more space, but the price is fair overall.

Online storage is nifty

So far so good.

Pros

I’ve mostly used this for college file storage but I see that most emails have this particular online storage available with them.

Cons

It creeps me out to think that this could be hacked and personal files could be pirated such as pictures of my children, business forms, etc.

Easy. Convenient. And can use it everywhere!

Working remotely, this is the best software we use to quickly share and access documents between colleagues.

Pros

I loved that I am able to access it from my phone, tablet, and computer at any time. AND if I want to share it with someone, I simply click "Share", type in their email, and choose what they are able to do within it.

Cons

I am not really certain there isn't anything I didn't like.

It works, seamlessly

Like I wrote, it works seamlessly. To be honest, I forgot it was there for months, use it fairly regularly since.

Pros

It works like a file, just drag and drop or navigate to it. Great way to share large files in a working group, back up entire computer if you need to (I think you'll need to pay for more storage though) or just save important files to back up

Cons

Not much, other than having my files in the cloud. Won't use for sensitive documents, but huge files are usually plans and such

I Like OneDrive

Pros

I like how it automatically saves to the cloud. I also appreciate working on the same doc simultaneously with someone else and seeing their changes. And I like having a link to send people instead of a file--so that if I make changes after I've shared the link, the person will always see the most current version. All these features make it better than mere Word, Excel, PPT, etc.

Cons

I can't think of any cons with this software. I haven't run into any.

OneDrive

Overall it has been a great app and would recommend it to anyone who is needing to keep documents, pictures, and other files in reach.

Pros

This is a great way to keep the family (or employees) all on the same page! For the family we have our passwords, budget, and pictures. For the business we have out clients spreadsheets and pictures. I like how anyone can access the same account from anywhere.

Cons

It doesn't hold much memory. I would have like to have a little more memory.

One Drive makes sharing easy

Great platform

Pros

Grey cloud storage option and the ability to open you drive to others and work simultaneously is fantastic.

Cons

It can be bare bones but where this software platform is always upgrading it gets better all the time.

OneDrive is Great

Great, I use OneDrive to store all of my files and I work directly off of it whether that is my computer or phone.

Pros

It's easy to use and works on all devices. Easy to share files with friends or colleagues. I liked having access to my files anywhere I needed them.

Cons

Sometimes uploading takes a long time but that is not their fault. You can't automatically upload phone pictures to OneDrive on a business account

Onedrive. Another push by Microsoft to take over a place they don't belong, and shouldn't be.

Poor performance, permissions nightmares, etc.

Pros

One drive provides a great set of features, and in Microsoft fashion, implemented poorly.

Cons

Obnoxious, takes over your pc like a virus, almost. changes your default file save locations to the cloud, integrates more than you want it to, and doesn't work as well as it needs to for what it tries to do.
