Excellent file storage

2021-03-09

Great experience uploading large files, which includes large video files.

Pros

I like the most the capacity it has to store several different documents without any limitation on storage size. If given adequate management access, people across the organization can view the folders and use the files.

Cons

That it needs to be controlled for access because not all individuals will have access to the folder or files.

Best for Enterprise cloud storage and Easy to share files with others

2021-01-21

In my organization almost all employees has access its own Microsoft OneDrive storage. So we can upload our data in cloud and via cloud we can easily share those file to anyone. company administrator set limited storage to every employee.

Pros

Any can controls it own folder or files security. Files access permission is very good.

Cons

In my experience I not least like about Microsoft OneDrive, I need API to integrate other custom developed application directly.

Microsoft One Drive

2020-08-07

Makes sharing easier, but also makes controlling access to sensitive data difficult

Pros

This has been very useful for document sharing and collaboration after everyone went home from Covid.

Cons

Restoring from a deleted drive is horrible and Support is nearly unusable as it is offshore and the first two tiers are completely useless.

OneDrive is great for storing/sharing documents

2021-01-13

OneDrive is great for storing and sharing documents for easy collaboration and editing.

Pros

I love that OneDrive is easy to use, and also makes it easy to store and share files. I also like the access control abilities to control who can access/use links and with which permissions/abilities.

Cons

I dislike that OneDrive gets confusing when trying to share links with different users with different levels of access control.

Easy to use, fairly basic

2018-11-25

Like any cloud storage, it's a good way to have everything accessible no matter what device you're using, allows you to share specific files with permission controls.

Pros

You can automatically sync all of your files/photos across any device platform (Mac, PC, Android)

Cons

Could have more robust features for version control and collaboration/sharing.

Ordinary CMS but MS-Office makes it much more powerful than it's competitors...

2018-08-02

-Good storage volume with office subscription.

Pros

My previous company was using office subscriptions, so got one drive as default CMS, It's really easy and trustworthy option, some of the major points I really like: -It's everywhere, I was using Android and its app is great with all basic features of editing and sharing important assets, got notifications when someone edit shared files too.

Cons

I found it a really slow app with sometimes sync issues, also one drive content management is limited to one user only not to the company level, one can't use it as the central repository to track assets.

Benchmark in Cloud File Sharing and Collaboration.

2020-11-11

Taken on its own, you can probably find cheaper storage solutions per buck but you may lack security and collaboration tools.

Pros

If you are fully integrated with Office then it provides a seamless experience to connect all Office apps for collaboration and synchronisation.

Cons

Storage - If you take it as a stand alone I would say that there are better options for storage capacity relative to OneDrive, for price versus storage.

Great as a Microsoft Tool

You have mobile access, web access and PC file explorer access which gives every type of user comfortability.

Pros

If you have a company tied into the Microsoft Suite, this is a great collaboration tool.

OneDrive is the best cloud storage platform hands down!

2018-09-05

The mobile interface is also very easy to use and gives most of the functionality needed to view, edit and share files.

Pros

There are several other options for cloud storage, but they usually require some 3rd party tool to be installed and do not have the same level accessibility within Windows Explorer.

Cons

The price is could be a little less, but it is still very reasonable for getting access with 6 different machines.

OneDrive is a great way to maintain your data while allowing for outside contribution

2019-06-13

Workflows are greatly improved with OneDrive, and collaborating on documents is much easier - especially RFx activities with multiple groups of contributors that may be working on the document at the same time.

Pros

At an enterprise level, each user can manage their own OneDrive, including various permissions on files.

Cons

OneDrive has some limitations, especially in that it does not handle non-MS application documents as well as it does MS documents, spreadsheets, etc.
