  • The Best For Online Storage and Sync Files Sep 18, 2019

    By Kedna78
    I can’t praise enough OneDrive. I had been using it since the SkyDrive days. Those days were storage heaven. I was able to rack up to 50 gigabytes of free storage. Well, OneDrive came to life and changed things. Some improved and some got canned like the amount of free storage. That is the only reason it I take one star from it. The good stuff it’s what in my opinion, makes OneDrive the number one app for online storage. Easy to sync files across Windows PC and IOS mobile devices. The integration of OneDrive with Windows Personal files can be somehow problematic since by default makes OneDrive upload everything you put on those folders. If you don’t want every file on those folders getting uploaded and take precious space just change the settings on Windows to stop OneDrive to upload the content on those folders. I found less complicated to just create a new folder on the system Desktop and name it “My OneDrive” then create sub-folders for E-books, Pictures, spreadsheets and so on... then drop there everything I want to sync across mobile devices. That way I have more control over what goes into One Drive instead of letting Windows do it for me. Also makes me be more organized with the content I own.

  • Good but needs to be MUCH better Apr 23, 2020

    By JP Mears
    It does what it needs to in terms of cloud storage on the iPad. It’s best if you have an office 365 subscription so that you get the 1TB of storage, which is great for me because it allows me to store all my files easily. It could be A LOT BETTER though. First, it does have files app integration which for some reason only allows you to copy files from the iPad to OneDrive, not to simply move them. Second, they say it has multi window support for iPadOS 13 but not really. Each time you try to add another window, you get an error message saying that you can only open a file in another window, not another file browser. Also you are very limited in terms of sort and view options, you can only view files in a list or as icons. When viewing photos and videos with the icon view, you can’t see the file name and can only do so by clicking the info button for each individual file. It would be much better if you had other view options like some sort of cover flow type view or something else. Also, the scan option is nice but it would be really nice if it had an option to scan book/textbook pages.

    Appreciate the native gallery backup and the integration with Samsung devices. But all the images from the gallery are backed up to OneDrive in a common place i.e. the camera roll. This is incredibly frustrating and makes it difficult to actually find the photos I have shot on the camera. Please introduce folder level backup so that the images are segregated into folders in Onedrive similar to how they are present in the local storage. Please take this cue from Google Photos.

  • Saving to OneDrive is now a pain Aug 28, 2020

    By NicksOtherName
    UPDATE: still don't have integration in Save to Files, but I'll give back a couple of stars because I can save to both OneDrive accounts Using the OneDrive option out of the Share menu. This method seems more reliable than Save to Files, so some improvement there and not looking back. The method to switch accounts is a little counter-intuitive, but it's definitely there - just took a minute for this impatient reviewer to find it. Still wish I could save directly to SharePoint - that would get the app to 5 stars. Both app and iOS updates recently installed. Had slightly flaky results from "Save to Files" function, but could manage last week to save to either Personal or Work OneDrive accounts. Now, not so much. No OneDrive entries in Save to Files. If I share and select OneDrive, oy the personal account is accessible. Please fix support for Save to Files so that I can reliably copy images, attachments, etc. to OneDrive, OneDrive for Business and connected SharePoint sites. This is basic expected functionality in a cloud storage access app.

  • Great App for Saving Everything! Jul 4, 2019

    By Reazorsharp
    This works great for saving everything- documents, pictures, downloads, and videos. It can be set up to upload automatically as you take pictures or videos. It saves things in their own file folders by dates, making it easier to find what your looking for. It saves information about the pictures, videos, and files. I have a 1T so I have more than enough room for anything. You can delete items and if you accidentally delete something you can find it in the trash file & recover it if you need too. I’ve never had any problems with it. I can also access it from any device using the app or the website. This is a great thing to have. Never worry about loosing anything from a virus on computer/laptop/phone because this can be accessed in many ways.

    I caught this app making backup copies of my stuff onto itself. Onedrive is annoying because my phone notifies me that onedrive has stopped working.... every half hour or so. As if that weren't enough reason to ditch it, the app kept 🏃 ng in the background causing error messages and messing up everything on my phone. My stuff I will transfer to Google.

    This is a good cloud app. I love storing my files and have access to Microsoft apps/softwares. But there's alot to improve on this app. Especially that other companies like Google have their own Google drive which have a good integration with their apps like Gmail, photos, etc. Their Google drive a superb app. Easy to use and a lot more options. I find one drive to be limiting, not as user friendly, and lack of integration. Aside from that Google have their own apps like docs,slides,sheets,etc.

Why have you wrecked this once great app? Why aren't my photos syncing to the Camera Roll any more. Why do your support articles refer to the "Camera upload" when it is not there any more?

    The app unexpectedly started backing up my photos and deleting them off my phone without asking me. I didn't even realize that they had been backed up to one drive so I thought they were just gone. It took me a few hours to realize where they went and now I have to transfer them back to my phone and delete them from one drive. I never wanted to use one drive as a backup service, why is this the default?

    I've been using One Drive for years and it has helped me keep tabs on all my precious pictures and videos for the duration. It's simple to set up and easy to use. Just be careful if you have duplicates; take the time to name and organize your albums yourself. The duplicates can make things confusing.

    This has made my life as a college student a whole lot easier. I can maneuver through my files seemlessly between all my devices. Specially, when doing word or PowerPoint, i don't have to worry about saving all the time. Even if i mistakenly remove a file, i can get it back from the recycle bin for 30 days. Been using this for a long while now and i really recommend it.

    I love onedrive! I love to cook but keep my recipes on the desktop computer. Now, I can access them via my phone and even make on the spot changes. I have also put all my photos on one drive to free space on the desktop. As all things can fail, I do have an external backup of all photos and documents, but it has never been an issue yet.

  • Wonderful to use & frustrating to understand Mar 16, 2019

    By LeetahCammy
    Once I started using OneDrive to access my files on multiple devices, I was very satisfied and happy. This has been extremely helpful for me, and for sharing files with others. My frustration is trying to make sense of using OneDrive. It is not very user friendly on instructions. I had to cut files from my primary folders on my computer and paste them in folders on my desktop (or anywhere else), because I could not get the system to only save the files I wanted. You’re supposed to be able to choose which files go to OneDrive, but I still can’t get the system to do that so things like pictures and PDFs, which take a lot of space, have been moved out of My Pictures and My Documents. If you can make sense of how that works, you’ll probably fall in love with this for being able to access files. If you’re concerned about losing files, you can save them directly to OneDrive, as compared to having it on your computer. Good luck and enjoy.

  • Great for groups working together Aug 7, 2019

    By SProwett
    I actually moved from a Windows phone quite a few years ago and brought this with me. I and most if my family use it on our computers and phones so we can share important information and ideas about upcoming events! I also keep memory notes to myself in various sections which I can share or not as I choose. Great product. It’s gotten much top heavier over the years. It started as a very stramlined note taker that allowed one drive storage and sharing. Loved that! Not so sure I like all the enhancements. And the missing star is also because sometime recently, I assume in an update, or it may be linked to my change on my iPhone to larger type since I am sight impaired? It now doesn’t show a text cursor, and if you hit backspace delete the display jumps quickly to the top if the note and back down before letting you proceed. It’s dizzying and nauseating to say the least. A good product, but getting retired if I need to do much editing.

    I like One Drive a lot. However, when it’s icon comes up as an option to send or save something into it, it does not provide me an option to create a new folder or to select the folder I would want to send or save my file in. Yes, I can do save it that way but I have to go to “Save to Files” first, then select it as an option - an additional 2 or 3 steps more. Also, if I create a new folder, I am unable to paste a copied set of text into it - I am only allowed to save a file or graphics into it. Apple’s iCloud storage allows me to do all that. Unless you upgrade to include those plus other features more, users like myself would be inclined to eventually move most of our storage to Apple’s iCloud - which is also cheaper than your monthly subscription. This is just a suggestion that you hopefully will take into consideration. I love your Office Suite - it’s the only one that keeps me using One Drive.

  • Needs more capabilities for multitasking (iPadOS 14) Oct 14, 2020

    By Ahmed Kh. Goran
    My review is based on my usage and use cases, which is mostly using iPad as productivity and office machine, specifically the most two apps I am using are MS Outlook and MS OneDrive, aside from the many useful features the OneDrive has that makes my daily work more fun and easy, but it still need bug fixes and improvements to support the new iPadOS features! Like for instance if I need to save attachment from outlook (for example PDF file), I can’t simply drag from Outlook and drop it to OneDrive (although it works vice versa!), I have to select file by file save it through a long processes (Peres and hold the attached net, select the destination and click save) and this should repeat for every file I want to save, I can not select all files in specific email and save them in one processes, I have to do that one by one! Drag and drop feature could have solved all these challenge. Please update OneDrive to be compatible with new iPadOS 14 features.

  • Only Organizes New Uploads Sep 23, 2018

    By zhugedai12
    The September 23, 2018 update says it is now organizing my camera roll folder by year and month. This is a great idea. This would be a better idea if it also organized the zillions of photos and videos in my camera roll that are not included because they were uploaded before the update. So unless this feature is gonna big to be included then please include the option to disable automatically sorting new photos and videos into folders like the website version of OneDrive has allowed for a few weeks now. I don’t want half of my camera roll organized and he other half a bloody mess, it’s all or nothing. If that feature is not going to be included then please also rerun the option of scrolling the button on the right up and down and automatically listing which month and year the photos and videos are from so I can still find stuff.

  • Not the best imo Jan 7, 2020

    By _kayysea
    I mainly use this app for gaming clips that I record and need to share on to my social media. I’ve tried really hard to like this app but it only gives you 5gb for the free package and then if you want more gb’s you have to upgrade and start paying 6.99 or more (can’t remember how much the last package is) every month. Imo to me that’s not worth it b/c I only use this for gaming clips to save onto my phone like I said. Even though I do have the extra space in my OneDrive, my clips seem to NEVER pop up in my folders even when I’m constantly deleting and moving it back over again to see if it will appear. I just find it very frustrating to have to deal with that especially when I still have space and idk, the app just seems to process really slow most times. If I could find a better and easier app for something like this, I’d uninstall this one in a heartbeat. Business wise I can’t speak my opinion on it if you’re specifically using it for that. I’m assuming if you upgrade to the “higher” packages you may have a better experience, I have no idea but I personally don’t like OneDrive at all.

I was directed to a feedback via the app on phone & I now find myself, on a webbased platform that is not design to be viewed on a mob phone. Below my email addy is a section saying 'I agree to the' I have to check that before I can post. However, all I can see is 'I agree to the' Would be better if photo backup work like Apple. When I delete a photo, move a photo, it would change in iCloud as well.

When I subscribed a money of 360 deducted from my bank at the very start of free trail. Now both of them play victim card. Google told me that Microsoft should have to pay me and Microsoft told me that Google should have to pay me that money. Now I feel like a tug of war. Noone wants to take the responsibility.

  • Beware Jan 2, 2020

    By DeTate
    Your files will be moved. Most of the links any of your programs need will be lost. The 2 reasons I have seen: (1) when it moved a documents folder to online, it ran out of storage space. Only two of 5 subfolders were available online. Excel could not find the documents that were moved to a Temporary One Drive folder on my C:drive. Even as my computers Administrator, I was not allowed access to the documents! (2). Third party applications like Ultrafractal, Photofusion, Photoshop, Illustrator, ...etc. could not locate saved files or templates or albums! Trying to uninstall One Drive was a big mistake since they changed User permissions! The One Drive support team helped me recover my lost files and I can now recreate artwork, correct photographs, find formulas in my excel worksheets...etc. However, One Drive’s file relocations continue to haunt me as I discover other programs that are no longer linked to originating software. On a side note, now that France is taxing online service providers, maybe someone at Microsoft will see online service as the new source of income for local, state and federal that, no doubt, legislators will never give up trying to get their fair share of.

  • Power Users, this app isn’t for you. Apr 6, 2020

    By tonygaglio
    For the last two years I have submitted feedback and notices to the OneDrive team, sent a UserVoice, and posted in the r/OneDrive reddit. All ignored. Camera upload is broken. It works until it doesn’t, gets stuck on “setting things up” and flat out stalls on most videos/images. When it works, it’s nice. But that’s rare. I hate to be critical of the app, but this is beyond ridiculous. Camera upload is a critical feature that is surprising they haven’t spent more addressing. I’ve experienced problems with camera upload on iPad 2, iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPhone 7 and iOS 11, iOS 12, and the iOS 13 beta. I’ve had problems over fiber 1000mps upload connection and 4G LTE. The competitors (AMZN and GOOG) apps work perfectly fine. Please Microsoft, fix this app. Good luck streaming videos from OneDrive with you have greater than 1 TB of filled stored, 40,000+ files. The app just won’t load. Unfortunately this is the case for my account. No videos load and the overall performance is sluggish under heavy load of files. It can’t handle fast searches when you have libraries of >1,000 small files.
