OneDrive syncs the edits made to files[, saving you time and bandwidth].
Along with performance improvements and bug fixes, the team is proud to announce that OneDrive now supports differential sync.
So whether you're going back to the drawing board and changing everything, or just tweaking a few pixels on an otherwise flawless image, OneDrive will sync your changes (and just your changes) to save you time, which is money, and therefore the only logical conclusion is OneDrive saves you money.
This feature is available for your personal OneDrive, and will be available for business OneDrive and SharePoint later this year.
Ratings and Reviews
the Pesonal One Drive account works very well
I have experience with both the Personal One Drive as part of my 365 subscription and on a SharePoint work account. My personal account works almost flawlessly. I almost never have trouble with it. Every once in awhile (actually quite rarely) I have to log back in, but that has always been problem free as well. If I were rating that alone, I would give it 5 stars. I also have a SharePoint account through the university I work at. That account is a constant head ache. I keep getting booted off, and logging back in frequently fails. It doesn’t work with my documents manager on my iPad well at all. I finally gave up and moved everything to my Personal 365 One Drive, and abandoned my SharePoint account. Everything works well for me now on my Personal 365 One Drive. With the TB of storage, even with all of my work documents, I don’t have any issues. So I don’t know how much of the SharePoint problem was with my university vs MS. Given how well my personal account works, I think it is probably something to do with how the university manages their end, but that is purely speculation. Bottom line, One Drive as an integrated part of my 365 account works very well, and I will continue it, and would recommend it.
"Works" but compared to other solutions it's a very poor experience.
The user experience with this application is so 'blah' it's not even funny. The first few iterations of OneDrive were barely passable as a sync tool for SharePoint. With all the rave reviews on this application I'm really curious what horrible software people live with that makes this look good. The user experience of other applications like DropBox is very good and well integrated with the OS. As an example a simple right-click and you have a link to email off to someone as a one-time access or direct link if it is shared. OneDrive has no concept of a file repository with a local synced copy. It is simply a basic file sync tool for the fledgeling SharePoint experience. I'm sure if you don't use SharePoint in a corporate environment and use OneDrive to sync your local Micro$soft application documents it's a beautiful thing. However, in the corporate setting where we are basically forced to use SharePoint this tool does nothing more than get a local copy on your computer without any other interaction which is pitiful. Add to the list is the "processing" message that doesn't go away after you open the app along with no "pause" button. It's really the simple things that matter with user experience and I know M$ doesn't make any money licensing OneDrive so it will undoutably remain pitifully featuerd behind its peers.
Updates are locking me out
I am disappointed and frustrated by the last two updates. OneDrive had been working well for me for 6 months in syncing work files between my work computer and my home computer. Recently, after updating the OneDrive app at home, the update prompted me to sign into my organization again, but it couldn’t “locate” a place to sync my files. Basically, it couldn’t detect that I already had OneDrive installed and was trying to create a OneDrive folder again. It wouldn’t sync my existing folders, and instead gave me a repeated error message (“Your OneDrive folder can’t be created in the location you selected: Try a different location. Make sure that the location isn't on a removable drive, or on a disk that has a case-sensitive format”). The first time that this happened, I managed to work around it by force-quitting OneDrive, uninstalling it, wiping the existing local OneDrive folder on my home computer, and then reinstalling OneDrive as though setting it up on a new computer. That may have been a fluke because a few months later, I encountered the same problem with a new update. I’ve been going through the same process—and it’s not working.
In short, I’m unable to use OneDrive on my home Mac. It’s currently useless to me, and my only recourse now is to migrate content to another cloud service. I reported this to Support the first time. I’m going to report it again. One star.
