OneDrive--A great solution for cloud-based storage
Score 10 out of 101
Overall Satisfaction with OneDrive
OneDrive has replaced Box at my company. OneDrive is being used as the single cloud-based location to which we update, store and sync all of our files regardless of where we are. This allows me to quickly and easily share files with my team and colleagues giving them access to real-time updates without having to send them multiple files as a document changes.
- Easy sync between my computer and the cloud. I just select the folder(s) to sync and I'm done.
- Easily share files with others. This allows for fast and simple collaboration between numerous individuals.
- Automatic synchronization between selected local folders and my OneDrive cloud folder. I can automatically sync all my local documents to the cloud for easy access when not at my computer.
- It would be great if my cloud-based folders and files could be presented in my Windows Explorer without having to synchronize them locally. I could then simply browse them and if necessary, download them as needed.
- The "cloud" icon looks very much like many other cloud-based storage icons making it less than intuitive to know which one to click. There should be options to select other icons for the system tray application.
- I have both a personal and corporate OneDrive account and would prefer to access them both from one system tray icon. Currently I have two separate icons.
- We added OneDrive as a corporate-wide cloud storage solution in conjunction with our upgrade to Office 365. It was a seamless integration.
- We have experienced significant cost savings over Box as a cloud storage solution.
- Box and Google Drive
We moved our corporate storage from Box to OneDrive to take advantage of seamless integration with both Office 365 and SharePoint live. We evaluated Google Drive but it leaned too heavily toward Google Docs. We have a substantial investment in Microsoft Office-based documentation and therefore decided on OneDrive.
OneDrive is great in a high-bandwidth, corporate environment. Although I do access it from my mobile device it is a bit difficult to determine how to move files and if saved, to determine where a file is saved. If I have a folder with a large number of files, I would prefer to access it with a tool other than the mobile OneDrive app.
