Overall Satisfaction with OneDrive

Onedrive is used as a cloud repository for all local documents. At our organization the majority of new laptops have 128GB SSD out of which 10GB will be lost in backup and other OS activity. With Onedrive we are able to get 1TB of free space and sync all our documents across different machines in our organization. This is really helpful in case of an accidental crash or any other issues.
  • Sync all the data across different machines.
  • 1TB of free space with corporate account.
  • History tracking and version updates.
  • In some scenarios Onedrive takes a long time to sync files and it causes issues on the application side if you want to edit it. The application will throw an exception as the file being used by Onedrive service.
  • OneDrive creates new file when sync is in progress and that makes another version of file with the user changing the file. It gets difficult sometimes to sync these files. They should improve sync process.
  • OneDrive creates default a folder on a laptop under the user directory. If a user could control the location it would be helpful. By having it at user level it takes time to load the profile every time a user logs in to a machine.
  • Before oneDrive we use to spend a huge [amount of] money on hardware and now it has become [updated] with Cloud based oneDrive.
Dropbox is good for personal use, OneDrive stacks up due to integration with all Office365 supported applications.
OneDrive's linking with Outlook, SharePoint, Lync and other Microsoft applications brings it on the top of all other competitors. With just your Office365 account it provides big flexibility to the user.
