    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
    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.

    Essential especially to backup work files.

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    My Microsoft 365 account included OneDrive, which was an excellent complement to the other software. To enter my files, I don't need to signed in to another service. It allows me to view my files from either computer or a smart device at any time at a low cost. The file structure is close to that of most personal computers, and it makes it simple for me to handle files, whether I'm copying, transferring, or changing their names. Even my massive drawing files open quickly and easily, allowing me to operate on quickly.

    Pros

    OneDrive allows me to keep files on the cloud and retrieve them from whatever device, even when I'm not at the workplace. This comes in handy when I need to share files from my smartphone on social media, particularly on pages that are only available on mobile devices. I have a powerful CPU with plenty of storage, but I often build massive illustration and digital images that would start filling it if I do not have backup storage.

    Cons

    It's nice to have my files with me everywhere I go, but each time I open a file, a copy is saved on my laptop. Until I uninstall it, this will gradually take up precious storage space. I didn't know it until my CPU was clogged with redundant files that took up a lot of bandwidth. It took me some time to find a way out how to safely clear the storage space.

    OneDrive Review

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    OneDrive is an extremely fast and reliable cloud storage service. It has fixed the challenge of sharing data across teams working remotely and the fact that it is extremely user friendly is an added plus. It provides a great back up solution for all our data directly from the desktop.

    Pros

    OneDrive is a superb cloud storage service that has fixed my storage and back up needs. Ability to save files directly from my desktop is just great, as well as giving me the ability to share files with my team members. It is also extremely fast and very reliable.

    Cons

    Additional storage for free users would be great

    OneDrive is a vital part of our business operation!

    Reviewed 23 days ago

    Honestly, we couldn't run our firm without it. We need a way to manage our large files without a server, and we need to also be easily able to share them. Most importantly, items sync up quickly most of the time and make them available for more than one person to work on items simultaneously.

    Pros

    The ability to share files easily and manage multiple files without filling up my hard drive.

    Cons

    Sometimes the sync messes up and creates duplicate filenames.

    Nice tool for Cloud backup but has some issues

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    I use it as part of my 365 subscription. When you look at this tool overall it usable as a part of Microsoft 365 ecosystem. But if you dig deeper into features and options issues start to occur. It draws power from 365 users base not by it's own features and options.

    Pros

    Well the software is functional to a degree. I found it easy to set up for basic usage, syncing some folders on pc on regular plain usage. Logging from office.com portal and accessing documents and files is also a great value. Sharing file with company and outside of company users is cool with cool predefined options which are helpfull.

    Cons

    There is no advanced options for upload control. Few users can easily saturate internet connection. Also when you migrate user folder on windows pc to another drive numerous issues raised. Also i had few issues where files would not simply upload to OneDrive even when connections is 300/100Mb. There is no linux client which is forcing users to other services like Dropbox and GoogleDrive. Android versions work better then Windows 10.

    What I like about OneDrive

    Reviewed 4 months ago

    I use it daily. I like that I can access it from anywhere and that it syncs automatically.

    Pros

    I like that it is part of my Microsoft 365 subscription and is not any additional charge. It has a lot of space to use and even more for storage and automatically syncs and backs up for me.

    Cons

    I was not a big fan to start because I was used to another service. So the transfer of files was not very smooth, in fact some files were completely lost.
