you need to know your limitations !

As per all Microsoft software - its written by Microsoft and as such they have no idea of the Mac Universe as an ongoing OS, They write like programmers they think like programmers and they dont employ any designers / artwork people or people who design interfaces , they don’t appear to test out their products very thougherly - The case in point is that it fails on repeated occasions, and it fails in 2 specific areas - No 1) it does not like large files - ie over 2 gb - it treats them with contempt and more often than not won’t back them up properly - this has been ongoing since version 1 (If there was a version 1) and the most frustrating is its funny over file names - its like going back to MSDOS of the 70’s ! - If for instance you have an ical calendar backup, if you right click on these on the mac and choose “show package Contents” it consisits of 100’s or 1000’s of assosciated files, and lots have odd names and full stops forward slash / in the names - it does not like these 1 little bit ! again this has been ongoing since early versions, and the only rels work round is to comprees the file before hand, these things are not an issue in Dropbox which works faultlessly - i understand that drop box want £70 a yera for their system , but it works 100% - Microsoft the Multi Million Pound company should be able to run rings around these other services - but they dont and i always wonder why ?

After password change loads of problems

I had to change my password, so that meant signing in again on several different laptops in different locations. The first problem was simply no longer being able to sign in (and checking I was using the correct new password by singing in without hassles online.. I finally solved that by - several times - deleting the Onedrive app and re-installing it. As I say, I had to do this several times before I could succeed. WHY that hassle, suddenly.

The next problem was that although each laptop - obviously - had a dedicated One Drive folder (and thank goodness my main laptop at home signed in without hassle), the app did NOT downloaded the latest version of files at all. It simply didn’t, which pretty much defeats the object of using One Drive to access the SAME files in different locations.

I am now in the proces of AGAIN downloading the app from the App Store in the hope I can solve the problem, but I’m not holding my breath.

I have scoured the net for solutions or accounts of the same happening but have so far not found any. And criminially Microsoft have NO advice, help or tips at all.

All this after using One Drive without hassles for several years, so what the hell is going on? It was simple - necessary - password update which led to this trouble but boy is it blood frustarting. If anyone at Microsoft reads this, GET IN TOUCH!

Poor quality experience

Recently OneDrive has started regularly logging out. This happens silently, without the user being notified, and so won't be discovered immediately.

I use OneDrive to share files with business partners, and having reliable syncing is vital - it's frustrating when you realise the work you did can't be viewed by the other partners because OneDrive hasn't been syncing for the past couple of days. It's even more frustrating when you remember the business is paying for this service.

Worse still, during the repeated process of having to sign in again, and then relinking to our shared folder, OneDrive seems to have overwritten my work, which had only been saved locally. This is primarily the result of user error, as I should have made a backup before syncing again, but instead chose to trust OneDrive to recognise the files that had been edited since they were last sync'd. Oops, definitely won't make that mistake again - not least because we're switching to Dropbox!
