Pros

Its a very helpful tool. I use when when I work from home and I love when I have all my documents on my MacBook from dropbox- without copying them; they just are there, love it.
Love the different type of software it has to offer such as storage or the quality of being able to save.
Very user friendly interface sync is very reliable good retention features. Lan sync and smart sync features are great.

Pros

Quick synching and the ability to organise folders and sub-folders is great. Overall, a decent program and certainly useful for small businesses such as myself.
What I like best about this software is its ease of use and integration with Microsoft products and services.
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

The group and user policy is alittle bit weird to understand and alittle bit confusing. I had to redo the whole access policy twice because it was not working as i wanted.
To have the file uploaded in the background with limited speeds irrespective of the download or upload speed is something that has irritated me.
It has some integration that sometimes provides warnings through Excel, but other file types are completely at risk of having conflicting copies.

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.
Where do I begin, it constant instability, it is very hard to use use, sharing process and access permission are coming from hell and the version control is simply sadistic.
The most problem I have as a user is the sync problem, sometimes it gets stuck and you have to restart your computer.

It is easy enough to use for cloud storage at work. I can save and recover files very easily, and there are few technical glitches.

The mobile app is extremely heavy and the app can't be stored on my SD card. It also asks for way too many permissions.

Unlike OneDrive, Microsoft products don't allow it to use the autosave feature. Also, since OneDrive is included for free with 1TB of space, I really don't need to also pay for this.

Dropbox does what you would expect it to do. I like that you can drag and drop files to a folder on your computer and it automatically uploads them to their cloud.

Cons

It works very similar to OneDrive, and since OneDrive is included in your O365 subscription, it's better to just stick with One Drive and not have multiple file sharing services installed on your computer running at the same time.

dropbox is secure allows you to have ifles with you wherever you go. You can send temporary shares to people and it always syncs up perfectly.

The cost of dropbox and limitations of number of users you can sync to a free account are annoying. Playing up for it helps but there are cheaper and free alternatives out there.

Good business solution for a large organization

Reviewed 4 years ago

I like using it. It is a competitor to Dropbox, but business version has a much more space.

Pros

We have OneDrive as a part of Microsoft agreement. It is part of our 'system'. We no longer email attachments but rather share the files via this cloud storage. It eliminates the need for sending files - the old fashioned way.

Cons

Syncing with your local PC is a bit cumbersome. You have to select which files are and are not synced.

Not as many features as Dropbox for Business, but very fast

Reviewed 5 years ago

I use Microsoft OneDrive for storing backups of files in the cloud. This serves two purposes: If there is a systems failure and I lose my hard drive, I will have a backup If I am on the road, I can still access my files. I've found Microsoft OneDrive to be fast, and does not slow down my computer. However, it does not have Two Factor Authentication, which is why we use Dropbox for Business more.

Pros

I most like about Microsoft OneDrive is that the client program installed on my computer is very fast, and can deal with multiple small files very quickly.

Cons

I dislike that Microsoft OneDrive does not have any Two Factor Authentication (2FA), which is why we ultimately are using Dropbox for Business more than Microsoft OneDrive.

I was a Dropbox business user for many years until they raised their prices considerably. OneDrive offered a much more sensible storage capacity and monthly price for my freelance business needs.

Cons

Nothing I dislike about OneDrive. It does use a fair bit of CPU at some times, but much less than Dropbox.

Buggy but works if you have the latest version

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Works similar to dropbox but much more strict. Cheaper than others and generally comes with 1tb of free space if you already have a business plan.

Cons

If you have folders or filenames that have special characters, they are not going to get backed up. The client program has historically been buggy as all get out. The latest version fixed a lot of issues. Microsoft makes it so complicated to set up the client program (in comparison to dropbox) most users are going to get frustrated, quit and use another application. Want to share a folder with someone; forget it. Too complicated. Sure you can get it but not until after a few trial and error sessions.

Only use it because it's included in Office 365

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

It's basically free as it's included in Office 365 licensing. It integrates well with Office 365 applications. Integrates well with Active Directory because of Office 365.

Cons

Clunky. Slow. Dropbox like functionality isn't very good. There are multiple flavours which cause issues for users that have a personal account and a business account. Syncing fails often from Windows.

A very corporate dropbox replacement

Reviewed 4 years ago

OneDrive is a poor replacement for Dropbox. If your company has the option of picking dropbox, go with that.

Pros

It does let you store files in the cloud certainly. It has a client for windows and for mac. It does eventually upload your files to the cloud.

Cons

The speed of upload gets throttled very often. The sync features are hard to understand. I still have not figured out how to make it show you the files without downloading Gigabytes on to your computer. The UI on the office 365 online side is horrible.

Useful online file storage solution

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

It's not that hard to get it set up initially and it syncs your docs very easily. It also works across devices which makes it easy to use.

Cons

The UI is a bit blah and doesn't give you that seamless navigation you'd like. Compared to other file storage solutions like Box and DropBox for Business, it seems to be a bit primitive.

It’s not as good as Dropbox

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall, I prefer Dropbox. If you have to sync files and keep it all organized, Dropbox is better

Pros

It’s nice to have it integrate with your outlook account so seamlessly. There is a lot of space available as well.

Cons

It’s clunky and bloated. Feels very dated in design and layout. Not a big a fan. When you send links to other non one drive users it can be a little weird in access.
