  • 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 have to admit, I'm jumping on the onedrive train late. Hands down when it comes to upload big files and you want all your files to be their OneDrive is the way to go. Dropbox couldn't handle some of the complex file structure I was uploading so it was a lot of missing files. With Onedrive that's not an issue at all and I'm uploading upwards of 75 GB to 100 GB to Onedrive. It's a simple drag and drop and it reads every single file.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    The app is okay, but it does not allow you to move or copy files to a folder some else has shared to you. You can copy from a shared folder, but not to some elses shared folder even if you have permissions. It will not even list shared folders in the copy function. So I have to use a 3rd party tool to do it.

  • 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.

    This app uploads a new copy of ALL your pictures and files every time in syncs. They force you to buy additional storage if you want to save anything new. I have spent days clearing out all the duplicates just to have it happen again and again. I have no idea when pics were taken since I can't be positive what copy I am deleting. Very disappointing and time consuming.

  • 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.

    I don't know how this app can be so bad! As soon as the app detects a new folder, it will sync EVERYTHING in that folder, it is IMPOSSIBLE to remove anything from the upload queue so even though you rush to untick the folder in Additional Folders, whatever files the app detected, will be stuck in the queue and you have no choice but to let it upload! Take my advice, use Dropbox instead. I don't understand how such an established company can make an app that is so dire!

    I can't be bothered to faff around looking for all these "clouds" so the fact that One Drive is automatically on Windows anyway, setting up is a breeze, I have no issues with it, it is automatic from me when I save things, I don't even think about it which for someone like me means it is perfect. I can set up folders easily, find folders easily. If you want an easy life with regards to saving and finding things, this the app you want.

    I tried it before but I could not get on with it so uninstall it 3 times. Then I have been using it for work and I have learnt how to use it. It is now the best app I have loads of storage and I upload everything to cloud. All my photos are in the cloud. Also the PDF scanner is brilliant I scan my receipts in as well. My biggest tip. Is to have a long pass word Hope this helps.

  • Solid update with the recent version Jan 31, 2018

    By JB_Seattle
    The most recent update is everything I hoped for. I stuck by OneDrive as they slowly made their way to full iOS support. The recent update takes it the rest of the way - it is outstanding. OneDrive for iOS is no longer a second class citizen. The OneDrive app is solid, with support for document previews, Live Photos, caching and better sorting. Drag and drop is also robust and well implemented. Don’t use it as much at the moment on my iPhone but found it pretty intuitive on the iPad. OneDrive is now also fully integrated in Files, if you prefer that. Surprisingly I’m now finding I prefer OneDrive app interface instead - better organization features than Files. Still, it’s nice to use files to throw apps between cloud services and local storage in a unified interface.

    One drive just makes life so much easier as I now have 2 tablets, 2 laptops and a mobile phone! One drive allows me to work on any device and make the files available on all the others anytime I want them as long there is an Internet connection. Gone are the days of transferring all data from an old laptop to a new one or emailing files to myself so I can work on it on another device and when setting up a new laptop all I need to do is log on to microsoft office and everything is just there.

  • 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.

  • Accessibility Jul 31, 2020

    By Wuest2
    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.

    Nice idea for swapping files between devices, but it has one fatal flaw that the competition such as Google Drive doesn't: if you edit a document while your device is not connected online, when your device connects next then OneDrive can overwrite your edits with an older version, and there is no way of getting your edits back - you've lost your work! When working offline, create a new version of the file with a new name, and update OneDrive manually when your device reconnects.

  • 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.

  • Useful but Why Does it Need Location Services Continuously Nov 30, 2019

    By KevinPurcell
    This app is very useful for back up in the sinking between your iPhone and other devices. I have turned on photo upload in the background but it doesn’t really work very well unless you have location services turned on all the time which eats up battery life. There is no good reason to need location services all the time just to upload photos. Plus uploading of large videos often hangs or stalls because of this. Other than that it’s a useful app but they need to really fix this. UPDATE: I understand the background services that require you to turn on location ask the time is an iOS issue. But I often get one our more pictures in photos that just won’t upload. I have to restart my phone sometimes to get it to upload. Forcing the app closed or turning off connection doesn’t work.

  • After the biggest update, it doesn’t keep pictures or videos in order Sep 20, 2018

    I’m using a iPhone 6. I would always use this app to double backup my photos and other items I needed. Back then it use to be all in order. Didn’t need to scramble around to look for the picture or video. It would be in corespondent to the iPhones photo album. Now it’s just all over the place. I can have some pictures in order but some will be just not in the right spot. Making me scratch my head saying; did I really take it this date? Even as a OneDrive Premium customer, this has been going on for about 2-3 months now. I would hope that they bring this back. It works as it’s supposed to. Don’t get me wrong, but actually finding what I’m looking for at the time it’s supposed to be there. Not diving into a old box of photos figuring out when I took the picture. I miss that feature.

  • Unreliable Mar 31, 2019

    By MDBoyz
    If there’s anything you’d want most in a cloud storage/backup/sync service, it would be reliability. On that score, OneDrive fails in ways I’ve never experienced with Google Drive, Box or Dropbox (I use all 4). First, the iOS app constantly crashes. You open a directory to browse and it either crashes or fails to load. The bugs don’t stop there. Sort by date and for the most part it works, but there will be random files at the top (newest) that don’t belong, often more than a year old. Second, the app doesn’t sync in the background. You might think that you could use OneDrive instead of paying for iCloud to sync your photos. But with iCloud your photos always sync; no need to worry. With OneDrive you have to open the app to the photos tab before they sync. So all those great photos you took on vacation you thought were automatically syncing weren’t. Finally, the Windows PC version suffers from the same unreliability. Random files don’t sync, especially Microsoft Visio files. The app will pause itself without warning, something you’ll only find out days later when an important file is out of date. You’ll put the icon in your always-visible taskbar icons to make sure you’re warned of issues, and on the next upgrade it reverts to hiding in the extra icons pulldown. Most of the time OneDrive works. But when it doesn’t, it won’t be expected, it won’t warn you, and you’ll be as frustrated as I am.

  • Double dipping on storage May 30, 2018

    By __Richi__
    I had downloaded offline content, about 7GB, not much. Turns out that after the last few updates, The OneDrive app doesn’t see the content and has to re-download the content again. This can be check my going to General-> iPhone/iPad Storage and looking for the OneDrive app. Clicking on each of the items previously downloaded brings up the circular bar that it’s downloading it. The purpose of offline content was so it could be available offline. This doesn’t help. At least if the info that was previously there is not going to be used, let the user know and wipe it out, that way we are aware and can download it in a place where WiFi is good, so when there’s the need to use it (in a Cell location where the signal is bad) at least we can have it available. Not sure if this is replacing the same content or just placing it as an addition download, in which case it’s double-dipping.

  • Photos Jun 15, 2019

    So if you basically store photos here, wait for a few months and I guarantee some of your photos have been deleted without them notifying you your items have been deleted. I don’t just delete pictures without storing the pictures here in OneDrive. I had a family member that passed recently and I had pictures of us stored in one drive and going back to it, I could not find my pictures. Not in the recycling or in other folders. NO WHERE. And my sister had the same issues. She had pictures of my baby sister when she was younger and we were trying to make a collage for her in school for her project and we could not find the pictures. I know they were on OneDrive because we would go back and relive the memory on here and now our images are gone and we have no way of getting them back. I’m very upset because the pictures mean something to my family and OneDrive just deletes it like nothing.

  • 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.

I had no idea i was deleting the only copy of the pictures I would ever have.
