Microsoft OneDrive Reviews
We have 2 reviews for Microsoft OneDrive. The average overall ratings is 2.5 / 5 stars.
Overall Opinion: Onedrive takes over your computer. It becomes your primary hard drive with you hard drive as backup. Microsoft does this to force you to stay with them and keep paying them money. It often does not sync with your computer, this leaves you access to your documents on ondrive and you do not have access to them if you are somewhere with out internet.
Cons: It often does not sync well. Your documents are saved on ondrive but not on your computer.
Overall Opinion: The Microsoft OneDrive cloud service, which is included with Windows 10 and is available for older versions of Windows as well as for mobile, is fairly easy to use for even casual computer users and offers a variety of advanced features that are very convenient for users seeking more in-depth functionality. The 5GB of free storage provide a lot of space for users who just want to store some of their files in the cloud for easy access, and more storage can be added inexpensively since plans are reasonably priced. Unlike other cloud storage services,which offer only limited web based editing abilities, Microsoft includes access to a fully functional web based suite of its Office products with all OneDrive plans including the free version. OneDrive’s web based Microsoft Office products are incredibly useful for easily working with documents, seamlessly editing across multiple platforms, and viewing files exactly as the author created them. Did you just discover that you need access to a file on your home PC but you forgot to upload it to OneDrive? No problem! One incredibly useful unique feature of OneDrive is the fetch feature, which allows users to access any file on a PC on which OneDrive is installed and authorized.
Pros: Included with Windows 10 Web based versions of Microsoft Office products will be familiar to most users and easy to use for document editing File sharing and online access allows users to get the documents they need when and where they need them, as well as making it easy to collaborate on a document
Cons: Security & encryption isn’t the most robust Most plans have sharing limits No real versioning system on personal plans
