Overall Satisfaction with OneDrive

OneDrive was used by several departments across a city government network here in the Bay Area. It helped address a lot of issues pertaining to document syncing between devices, document sharing amongst colleagues, and document backup storage.

Pros

  • Large backend infrastructure (Microsoft)
  • A lot of support documentation is available online
  • Plays nicely with other Microsoft products (Office Suites)

Cons

  • Syncing would often break between OneDrive and local machines
  • Syncing errors were often hard to troubleshoot
  • Not as user-intuitive as competitors (Google Drive and Dropbox)
  • Allowed for citywide employees to more easily and quickly share documents saving valuable time.
  • Provided a nice backup of documents in cases of lost laptop, lost device, corrupted drive, etc.
I think OneDrive fares better in the enterprise and business realm than Dropbox or Google Drive since it can be adapted to a large set of employees easily and tied in with Office365 + Active Directory. Both Dropbox and Google Drive seem more apt for single one-off consumer use.
Enterprise and large businesses seem to fit OneDrive much better than a single consumer using it.
