Overall Satisfaction with OneDrive
Onedrive is extremely useful and it is used in every department of our business. We use it to store and save every type of file in the cloud and that way we can access them in every device or PC of our company. By using it, we only need an internet connection to share files, and when there are no flash drives or portable hard drives is the best tool for copying or exchanging data and information between our PCs.
- It comes preinstalled with windows 8 and 10 and it automatically links your Microsoft account, so accessing our files from the cloud is really easy and requires no installations.
- Since it was developed by Microsoft it has an almost perfect integration with Windows operating system (which is the most common system used in every business) so there are almost no bugs or problems.
- Having a backup of information in the cloud is extremely useful since it can be accessed anywhere just with an internet connection.
- Something I found is that there is no encryption in a loaded file. For example, when uploading a password protected file from Excel, that protection will be lost in the cloud.
- It's free space is really limited, just 5 GB, so if you need more space be prepared to pay.
- It can be a bit buggy when online.
- It has had a positive impact because it allows us to share files with coworkers easily without the need of additional hardware.
- The ability to access information just with an internet connection is excellent while working in the clients offices or in the field.
Since Microsoft's operating systems are the most used in business, the fact that it already comes installed with Windows 8 and 10 and that it has almost no flaws while working with said operative systems makes it more streamlined for file sharing in a company than it's competitors, not to say that the other options are not great.
Microsoft OneDrive shines as a file sharing program in our business since it allows us to share documents without the need of any hardware such as flash drives or portable hard drives, or intranet connection. As of today, almost everybody has an internet connection so using OneDrive is extremely easy. I wouldn't recommend it for doing a backup of confidential information such as bank details since it's on the internet it can always be prone to hacking.
