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

I can store everything with it unlike some storage web based app that exclude some type of files like videos or pictures.

Cons

What can I ask more? Maybe an additional free space to accommodate the fast changing file capacity of some files.

Lags behind the other cloud storage programs on the market, but I can't argue with the price

Pros

- OneDrive is included with our Office 365 subscription, so there is no added cost if this is your principal file storage solution.
- I can save files directly in Microsoft Office programs, and share them with users directly from the file menu.

Cons

- There is a limit to the total number of files you can store on OneDrive as it uses Sharepoint on the back-end. Our Office 365 subscription also has a limited amount of overall storage.

Pros

- Can easily save, upload and share documents directly to our company OneDrive
- I can save files directly from Office applications in the File menu.

- Microsoft's customer support is pretty slow to respond to issues posted on their support board. This can be pretty frustrating in a work environment where we need helpful resolutions in a timely manner.

Overall, it has improved our monthly process and how we communicate with our Senior Project Managers.

Pros

We moved to the OneDrive to share our Job Cost information and gather feedback from our Engineers on the projects. The tool has been great because we can control which people see what data, people can edit information, and when we decide to lock down the excel/powerpoint files to ensure no further changes occur in the month.

Cons

Some of the functionality with Excel on-line doesn't work the same as the desktop version. Pivot table format was hard to lock down to make it visible for our engineers.

Sharing capabilities are great in this app. It does not change your excel spreadsheets into their own apps. It keeps the original layout.

Cons

Logging in to one drive on an unknown computer will sometimes automatically link your one drive to that computer and start syncing with it. You have to be very careful and read everything when you are logging in.

It was a great help for me, I needed to transfer more than 1,000 files from my personal to my work computer, and it was very easy to do. In my spare time in a matter of two days, I had everything in my new computer.

Pros

It's really easy to use, just drag and drop. I've had it for more than 3 years, and I love it. I have access to all my files doesn't matter if I'm in my laptop or desktop. I've never experienced technical problems of any kind. It has always worked flawlessly.

Cons

I really like it... its understandable that the free version is limited, I would like to have a choice of capacity.

I enjoyed using OneDrive because it was user friendly and I have interacted with my team members. I had them to send me files and we can all see the files and update when necessary before the final draft goes out. OneDrive is recommended for any group to use and get the work completed in a timely manner.

Pros

OneDrive was an effective program to use. This program is user friendly and shared program that I used with my team members. I can see all the files at one time and each member can update and know what is going on. I find the program easy to use and organized.

Cons

When the program gets stuck and will have to get out of it. You always will have to call customer service or chat but most of the time it is a busy time to get through to someone when you are in a hurry and time is valuable.

Value for Money

Even though OneDrive is great,there are improvements to be made to make it suitable for small business owners and their companies.

Pros

I consider myself a non-tech savvy person,meaning I don't know much about the latest updates in technology. But ever since my company switched to Microsoft cloud service OneDrive, I feel like a tech savant! The interface is easy to use, for a small company with less than 500 employees, we can communicate with OneDrive's other integrated apps such as Sharepoint and Teams that allow me to work with my other coworkers and update my files in real time.

Cons

Sometimes the link that you share with someone get expired quickly, meaning you have to resend them every time someone needs to access them . Other than that we had some connectivity issues in the past, for which I reached out to customer care but they were not too responsive.

OneDrive allows you to access your files from any Microsoft Word application as long as you can sign in. This is what led me to use OneDrive for file sharing in our business.

OneDrive was hard to set up for my team and wasted a lot of my time. We switched to Google Team Drives because Google Team Drives lets files be owned by the organization, not the individuals. It is also much easier to set up than OneDrive

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

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).

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.

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
