One thing that bugs me about One Drive is the amount of space allotted to the users. I believe 10 GB space is less nowadays, even for documents. One of the domains, One Drive, can improve by boosting the room to at least 25 GB for its users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I work on various systems, on my laboratory computers, on my home pc, and my laptop. Sometimes, I start a particular work on a specific device; however, I need to finish it differently.

OneDrive is definitely a well contructed platform in terms of the admin structure and the data storage context. One Drive is relatively coming up with new feature evry now and then, also the kind of plans it is offering lately has been instrumental. There are several functionalities in term of changing and storing the data and be synched up with the other Microsoft products.One Drive all in all is a great experience from the lens of usability and functionality. I can see a strong growth ahead for this product. It is amazing in the sense that it can assist with putting away, back up, make, and even alter records. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are a few highlights where Microsoft one drive probably won't have a potential for success like a customer work area utility stores everything locally which is somewhat of a break now and then in a figurative manner. In this way, there is a strong possibility or a chance that there could be issues in terms of data privacy, while that is still a challenge, overall the product is good. Another challenge would be somewhat the absence of secret key assurance for shared documents. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Microsoft OneDrive is somewhat a secured space. It has the cloud-based file storage and along with characteristics and features to share stuff around. With the kind of ease that it proves, it's sure shot worth it.

Basically, it's a choice between data security and expenditure lens. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Indeed, to store all the organization information and a few other significant materials and reference one drive is utilized. The way that it gives liberal free extra room makes it even more liked over other such comparative stages.

One of the key component why Microsoft One drive is utilized that it is efficient and well rounded up in terms of day to day work area. So for inside exchange of documents and information, the connections could be utilized which saves a ton of work ahead. Some outsider combinations and Cross-stage applications are many advantages.

Microsoft OneDrive for Business is Microsoft's business-focused cloud storage and file sharing One drive with 15 GB free space and sync with other google accounts provides holistic services. it is very easy to use and setup. consumes less space and give lot of ease in operations. It s very professional in look and does not have any fancy features. it gives seem less integration with email, MSoffice365, teams and offers great mobile app support and synchronization. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As of now, it is not offering desktop quick application and does have some data sync lags. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would highly recommend it for limited usage purpose. it makes business file access easy with its easy mobile sync. It is like accessing your laptop anywhere with all necessary file. you can even create rules to sync all folders automatically as per your preference. It a great application to work on the go , especially when you do not want to carry any device with you and have access to system at the destination. multiple people can also work on synced file as it gives sharing option in secured settings as well. so collaboration is also addressed.

One drive is a must for any business/ work group to bring effectiveness and seem less ease of operations at work.

15 Gb for primary use is enough as excel and word do not eat up much but definitely for heavier storage you may go for in purchase. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

not a very fancy look. themes may be introduced Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The best thing about Microsoft OneDrive for Business is that you can upload any file you want, no matter if it is an image, a document, a video or an audio file. You can access your files from anywhere, just login to portal.office.com and access onedrive from there or install the onedrive app and use it in your Windows or Mac device. Files uploaded would never expire and the download speeds are also very good. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike but yes, it could be better if the pricing would be a little less because other competitors such as Google Drive and Dropbox are available at fair price with all the features OneDrive offers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Anyone who is using Microsoft OneDrive for business can trust the software. Why, because it is a Microsoft product and when Microsoft is there, you do not have to worry about the security of your files. The second thing is, the you can use the service anywhere, I mean, in your phone or in your computer. For multi device syncing, you can install the OneDrive app in all your devices and can sign in using your same Microsoft account and that's it, all your files will sync among all your PCs.

What do you like best?

It has the option to save the files directly on the cloud and that is really useful when planning to share a file via SharePoint since there is no need to do double work by uploading the file later, it may sound like a little step but in a day full of meetings and several other things to do it can actually make a difference, especially when dealing with multiple files that need to be shared with different people. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Permissions are complex, no way around it, you can tune them so it works for you when sharing with the same groups of people at the beginning of a project but it is certainly harder than other file-sharing systems that I have used in the past. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Files saved on OneDrive can also be opened and edited directly on the browser Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

OneDrive for business has is best when it comes to text editors, sheets and also presentations. The world famous Microsoft Office Suit waives comments - It is great and everybody already knows it.

The design is also impressive: minimalist + intuitive = Great

If Google Drive has competitor, Microsoft OneDrive is for sure one of their biggest concerns. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The server is not as fluid and fast as it's competitors. Also, the plugins and apps also lacks integration and velocity. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

A better customer support in Brazil is for sure recommended. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use OneDrive for my professional files only. It has a great interaction with Microsoft Word which, in my opinion, is the best text editor available until now.

Saving the file in the cloud and having the opportunity to access it anywhere and edit using Microsoft Word is mind blowing.

There were occasions where I found out there was a minimal mistake to be corrected and I could do it using the OneDrive cloud service. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is always good to have a backup of your files and as soon as I hit save if I'm connected to the internet it saves the files to my MacBook and to the company cloud and I can easily share my files later by just going to the web version and assigning permissions to the person I want to share the file and since it is fully integrated with Office I can not forget to save since it autosaves. I have had issues where my computer crashes but the automatic autosave + OneDrive saved all my work and I was able to continue without losing anything Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Really good for Office files especially PowerPoints and Words but not great for any other kind of file and assigning permissions is harder than other systems like Box, if I have to share a lot of files I would pick Box unless the files were already on my OneDrive. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you use Office 365 there is a good reason to use OneDrive it is already included so no reason to skip it Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mainly saving/autosaving office files and sometimes sharing files Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
