Convenient, efficient, accessible

PROS & CONS

What are the best aspects of this product?

Been using it for the past few years and it is the best for storing files. What I personally like about this is that I can access them using my phone and desktop and I can edit them easily as well and it saves automatically. Using the selected folder in the PC I can sync my PC files in the cloud and access them on my phone.

What aspects are problematic or could work better?

Nothing.

What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?

Collaborating with different people has been easier using OneDrive. We can edit and share files online. And we don't need to worry about losing our data and if our interaction is secure because it is saved on the cloud and we can authorize who can access the files.

High storage capacity that is secure, fast, and convenient

PROS & CONS

What are the best aspects of this product?

OneDrive is the most convenient and easy to use storage application I have used. It acts as a folder in my computer and whenever I save files to that folder it immediately uploads it to the cloud. I love how accessible it is by phone, by desktop, or by different browsers and OS. It is the most convenient because it works well with Microsoft Office (being it a Microsoft product as well), Skype, and Teams.

What aspects are problematic or could work better?

None.

What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?

Safekeeping of important files, auto-syncing of files, accessible everywhere.

Infinite storage that is easy to use

PROS & CONS

What are the best aspects of this product?

I can save my device storage space by saving files on the cloud using OneDrive. It is an easy to use application that can store any amount of data. Plus, you can add people who can access your files.

What aspects are problematic or could work better?

Large files take longer time to load.

What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?

Autosaves my files, no more copying and pasting files to and from flash drives, a more secure way to save files.

More storage!

PROS & CONS

What are the best aspects of this product?

OneDrive offers a lot of benefits which makes users sure that their files are protected while also being more accessible to those who need the files. What I personally like about the application is that I can easily sync my files from my computer to the cloud and my other devices and I can share my files easily to whoever I like while also putting restrictions on how they can access them (whether they can view, edit, comment, download, etc.). It is an easy to access tool but also I have full authority on how I like to use, share, and control the files in my cloud.

What aspects are problematic or could work better?

Using OneDrive gave me more storage on my devices and safe storage of files on the cloud. No bad comments to share.

What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?

Save storage space on devices, secure storage on the cloud, easier method of sharing files, easy syncing.

PROS & CONS

What are the best aspects of this product?

Easy to share files yet users are sure files are share securely.

What aspects are problematic or could work better?

Errors in link sharing.

What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?

Accessible training materials can easily be shared with trainees and fellow trainers.

A recommended business storage solution.

PROS & CONS

What are the best aspects of this product?

OneDrive is fantastic since you can access documents seamlessly within its desktop app and the cloud. What's more, it's bundled with Office 365. Microsoft is providing each user around 1TB of storage without additional cost. This is essential for a small-sized company who's not in need of servers/complement for employees as they continue working on separate projects.

What aspects are problematic or could work better?

It fails to sync with in-house servers. It doesn't do this in a manner that's effective and efficient.

What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?

Each employee wants a backup for essential files they're currently working on. They want to make sure these same files can easily be accessed on the go. OneDrive caters to both. Employees won't have to utilize a VPN to working on such documents. They won't even have to depend on a VPN for a document they're about hand over to their client.

Very useful in storing and sharing stuff.

PROS & CONS

What are the best aspects of this product?

I like the amount of space needed in storing a bunch of stuff. I've had my chances with Dropbox and other services like like it. But this one has way more space. That means not having to worry about taking in high resolution images and docs with my colleagues. I like how I'm able to create folders and have everything organized.

What aspects are problematic or could work better?

It underwent a lot of changes before the current one. I don't remember it as "OneDrive." At times, I'd have to look into the Microsoft cloud to find that "OneDrive." Before it got to that name, it was called "SkyDrive."

What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?

Currently, I work with a couple others in an ongoing project. One lives in Seattle, the other in Las Vegas. And I'm residing in Atlanta. We're able to do things without e-mailing huge documents to each other. It keeps everything organized.

Fantastic for office use.

PROS & CONS

What are the best aspects of this product?

I like how I'm able to sync all my Microsoft products with it. Plus I get to see all of them online. I get to edit documents over the internet or have them downloaded to any PC. I like how its cloud service is free regardless if you bought a physical copy or paid for it via yearly subscription. You can easily share docs to others through e-mail.

What aspects are problematic or could work better?

I dislike having an update center frequently running in the background. I'm pretty sure it's meant to keep your docs updated online. Thing is, it can be a bit funky. Whenever I save any of my docs, two OneDrive versions would appear on my PC. I'll have to remember saving the same one each and every single time.

What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?

The primary issue with resolving Microsoft OneDrive problems is that you have trouble sharing it with other third party cloud services. I feel Microsoft should have some kind of a sync functionality seen in Apple and Google. The biggest upside seen in OneDrive is that Office versions will sync automatically with its cloud service.

Fosters file sharing and collaboration.

PROS & CONS

What are the best aspects of this product?

I work on a number of projects that entail a lot of collaboration as well as housing assets that can be included in websites. I'm able to work anywhere knowing the convenience of gaining access to files anytime. We've subscribed to Office 365 and with employees taking on tasks remotely, we're no longer VPN-dependent. We can keep all documents open in the middle of a discussion or making changes. I love how you're able to see who and when edits were made on documents.

What aspects are problematic or could work better?

There's nothing to really hate. The only quibs I have is whenever Microsoft makes upgrades on their products, you're forced to constantly log in.

What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?

We possess a file for people to remotely log in to gain file access if they happen to not be in the office. We've evolved in making use of the file server for storing files (for historical reasons) or for files that have been barely been accessed, and keeping all current/updated files within OneDrive for business use.

I love using OneDrive!

PROS & CONS

What are the best aspects of this product?

I like the fact that you can gain access to all documents from any device. It's essential for both personal and work-related reasons. If I happen to be working from home, I get to access documents via the software from my PC at the office. If I happen to be at work, I'm able to access personal documents whenever I'm in need of them. The sync client is awesome.

What aspects are problematic or could work better?

The first step can be a bit of a pain as it involves a very long process. Getting your account set up, download programs, and syncing with a client can take around an hour (or longer). Thanks to the latest sync client, it seems really quick in setting it up. When we initially used OneDrive, they were pretty much an "old sync" system that functioned really slow and not holding as much --- all this hassle is actually going through in the later going.

What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?

One big issue is not being able to constantly access an important document. At times, you'll be working from home or away from the office, and you've prepared what was needed on the flash drive, and then the unexpected happen where you lost you files. Going back to your PC can be difficult at terms of accessibility to specific documents.

Are you a current user of this product?

Yes
