Overall Satisfaction with OneDrive

OneDrive is being used by the marketing department of our organization. OneDrive has become indispensable to me. It's like having a single shared data and other files folder for all my devices. If you have enough space with your OneDrive account, you may find that you don't even need to backup most things anymore. This is one of those products that make you stop and smile once in a while as you remember how much work it used to be to accomplish something close to what it does. Seamless and easy to use, but accomplishes SO much and saves SO much time.
  • All my files are secure and not taking up space on any of my devices' hard drives.
  • You can create, edit and view folders, notes, to do lists, etc., on all your devices including your Windows PC, iOS devices and Android.
  • It is easy to share photos with. I upload photos from my computer and then have access to them almost anywhere. Downloading to Facebook is very easy to do.
  • Sometimes the app is not consistent and will miss edits. I noticed the lasted edits I made to a document from my PC did not transfer to my tablet when I access.
  • The storage is definitely inadequate when considering that extra high resolution photos from newer devices will fill it up in no time when backing up camera to the camera roll.
  • Sometimes the app crashes on my tablet. I find this most common when trying to access a large file.
  • I'm not sure that we have really analyzed what kind of ROI OneDrive has impacted the business; I do agree that it makes working from home a lot easier.
  • Having a flexible schedule outside of tax season, I find myself working more from home. Being able to effectively manage all our documents/photos/ads/promotional artwork from my home computer is awesome.
  • Happy employees means a happy business!
Though I would say that iCloud is more reliable, it is only compatible with Apple products. I use iCloud personally, but we do not own any Apple products as a business. I find that Dropbox can be confusing and not consistent with storage management. OneDrive solves the problem of being compatible with business software and has great storage management in comparison.
Although OneDrive works great; syncs across my devices and phone, making many documents available wherever I go; you CANNOT turn off the live tile feature. It's Microsoft's hubris forcing live tiles across its applications, without giving users a simple toggle on/off switch.
