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.
Usually works amazinly. But when it decides to stop syncing, there is nothing I can do to get it to sync agian. I’ve tried killing the process and restarting it and nothing. All I can do is reboot the machine. =/ Works flawlessly on iOS, Windows and the browser though
I work from both a mac and a windows desktop. I also work from a computer given to me by work that I can’t download apps on. I find it amazing that I can sync all my files accross a web browser, my phone and computers. That’s just mind blowing. I keep all my files in the cloud and they’re with me everywhere I go. I also get 1TB of storage. WHAT with all of Microsoft Office Suite for 10 bucks a month. That’s chump change for the value you’re getting. I work a lot with excel and word and having those applications on all my stations is a blessing. Thank you OneDrive team for listening to your audience and continuing to change your image for the better.
"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.
