About OneDrive

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.

Great Product that is troubling due to constant changes.

It is my go to.. I think about OneDrive as my hard drive, Love it. However, I speak for the many persons who are frustrated because they are not tech savvy.

Pros

I loved that you have all you documents synced onto your personal devices, and I USED to love the fact that there was a separation of concern regarding the shared sync tool from OneDrive and my personal OneDrive file. This allow my team members files to be in its own "space" and this was a good thing. This was what I liked about the OneDrive ..... but

Cons

OneDrive has changed in 2021 and this change has brought about headache for all. No syncing because the OneDrive is locked and awaiting action by users who has no idea as to what is wrong... Removal of the SharePoint/OneDrive sync has now left me with the newest experiment that is named the "ShortCut inside the OneDrive" these shortcuts are difficult to manage. I am used to improvement and enhancements, but when having to deal with thousand of employees that are just getting their feet wet, some changes are "UnWelcome"

Reasons for Choosing OneDrive

Office 365 is complete and enterprise ready. Come on this google products are otherwise. Good, but I have always read that there is Good, then there is Better and there is the Best... I think Good, Better Best is appropriate to apply for this situation. I am not saying that OneDrive is the Best, but is is Better than the rest.

Reasons for Switching to OneDrive

The 365 E5 offer is just a very comprehensive package. This is what made /forced the switch, but once you have join this movement then you cannot move back. It addictive.

Good option for cloud storage

I really like using cloud storage service because the easy access to my files and data, also can be protected with password for sharing purpose. The uploading and downloading speed is pretty fast depending to my internet connection stability. Overall, it has a good value for money spend here.

Pros

Working with OneDrive with Microsoft Office 365 is really amazing as i can saves my Office document directly to my OneDrive cloud folder without having to save it manually on the OneDrive platform. This software has its own application for mobile and computer that is working on the background, and it will automatically save a backup file for all the new file saves on my computer.

Cons

There are no option to recovering for older version that has been updated/overwritten for my file and document. The premium plan should include this option as the premium plan has much larger cloud space that can hold or archiving the old document easily.

Reasons for Switching to OneDrive

Both has their winning feature, but i am more comfortable using OneDrive.

OneDrive DESTROYED MY LAPTOP

OneDrive caused me to lose hundred upon hundreds of essential files. it messed up the whole computer system for me, and Microsoft did nothing to help even after messaging them countless times.

Pros

I can honestly say I don't know what I like about this software because nothing ever went positive with it for me. From the very start, my files wouldn't allow me to access them because of OneDrive and I received no help from Microsoft.

Cons

OneDrive absolutely ruined my old laptop. Microsoft pushed for their customers to store all their files through OneDrive, so I did. I saved all my files onto it, and I've never had so many issues with a software in my life. Every single file, there was something "wrong" with. I lost 95% of my files because of OneDrive. The permissions went haywire. It kept insisting that I didn't have permission to access files, yet I was the only user on my computer and it was the only device stored on it. Files kept getting locked or saying they were "offline and unable to access." None of the files would sync no matter what I did. Files kept duplicating then wouldn't save because of it. No matter how many times I opened a brand new document and tried to save it, something else would go wrong. I couldn't save documents at all. I reached out to customer service numerous times and received no help. Finally, I had to take OneDrive off on my laptop. I now have a new device and refuse to use their software ever again. I store everything on my computer.

Reasons for Switching to OneDrive

I made the switch because I thought a Microsoft software would work better with my Windows 10 HP laptop, but I was wrong. Now I save everything onto my desktop only.

Great product

Excellent. Copies Documents and pictures between my iPhone and PC. Organized the My Documents folder to sync. Have had a few issues with My Pictures and syncing from the iPhone. Think I need to enable background application operations or some sort of tweak to better sync over from my iPhone.

Pros

Syncs all documents to my Windows 10 machine from my iPhone. Easy to securely register devices with SMS Texts, e-mails with codes, and the MS Authenticator app.

Cons

Have had a few issues with photos from the iPhone. Likely a fluke or settings tweak needed. Seems like syncs from the iPhone are a little off at the moment. Everything from my PC ports over directly.

Reasons for Choosing OneDrive

Always have had great results from Microsoft. Very loyal. Excellent company.

Reasons for Switching to OneDrive

Like Authenticator and the MS Office 365 License I have includes one drive. I believe a few version may be available as well. Please note DropBox did a nice job too. One Drive is a bit more complicated, but seems to offer more options. Perhaps increased security as well.

Features such as link expiration after a specific date or password for files are very important and must be added to this platform.
