    For personal use OneDrive is great especially for backing up photographs from your phone or tablet. It works automatically in the background. My phone was broken one time on the drive home from a ski trip and all of the photos I took on the drive were actually in OneDrive even though the phone was toast. I did not lose a single thing because of OneDrive. For business use it totally sucks however. That's my gripe with it otherwise it's good for personal use and I put it on my relatives phones.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    I use this app all the time. Its Syncable across multiple devices when you log in using the same credentials. I am the owner of a home bakery so when its time to shop, I can type my shopping list on my pc then open the list in the store and check things off as I get them. I've also used this app when party planning and even taking notes for various reasons. Even quick "sticky notes". Its a great app to have when you have a lot to take care of.

    I use the basic functions of OneDrive to transfer files between my PC and mobile devices. It's not as stable as Google Drive and controlling the notifications in Android is an absolute pain, - it ignores any setting in the app or OS and bombards me with notifications every time I transfer files. It's about time this was fixed. Otherwise it's almost OK.

    Terrible program. Won't sync with gallery after update, every picture was redated to the day of update and now all my albums are missing and I can't open any pictures. Over 1000 pictures that were previously there are now gone. And I have to BUY more space now? I pretty much took up all the 5gb of space with the original transfer, so am I supposed to delete all the old memories to make way for the new ones? I guess my kid is 18 now, who needs the baby pictures anymore.

    I was pretty much forced to purchase this app due to Samsung deleting the gallery (which is completely idiotic imo). It's awful so far. I can't see any thumbnails of any photos, takes forever to load if I click on anything. Is someone going to offer some troubleshooting for this? I'm about to dump android and head to iOS. This is so stupid.

  • Manipulation Labelled as Convenience Feb 23, 2021

    By MC017 PKG
    One of the Worst apps to ever exist, Period. I have been Betrayed by this company, and Xbox, and Microsoft, and This is the crux. I have all my game captures from Xbox sitting on my hard drive... or so I Thought, because there was an update that made it Limited Space, and guess what happens if you Don’t use this app? THEY ARE DELETED AFTER 90 DAYS. I lost Thousands of pics, videos, content. Thousands. 4 years of captures of My Life Gone. It didn’t used to be this way. In fact, they stayed Forever before this, but Microsoft Whoopdie Doo Changes the Contract of the App use, and limited it down to a few gigs and Deleted Everything Without my knowledge. Oh Sure, Accept it. He accepted the new terms, so he agreed Oh Sure! Accept it, Or DONT USE IT AT ALL! CANNOT USE MY OWN HARD DRIVE TO SAVE MY OWN CONTENT ON MY MACHINE I PURCHASED WITH MY MONEY! ACCEPT IT, SLAVE! RUBE! LOSER! Accept it or Never use it again! I was Betrayed by this company of Thieves. Accept your New World Order, “people”, because This is what it’s about now. Pay us or Lose it! Accept! Obey! Give us Everything or you lose Everything! It’s such a joke. It’s all one big joke to them. And I was the punchline. I Don’t accept it, and I Won’t be supporting this company with money Ever. Accept that.

    This is one of the worst app ever! Never uploaded your pics, docs, etc etc etc , even if you choose Wi-Fi only or both options Wi-Fi and your network, all the times your upload will be on pause because you don't have network!!! , all the time show is not network connection and the uploading is paused, if you opted for uploading when charging only, same thing, no networking, uploading paused, I try all nothing works! I wish to give you only 1*!

  • 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.

    Great to have cloud storage which is available seamlessly, and a generous amount too. Automatic upload of photos is also good to have since it provides a measure of comfort that photos will not be lost. Just frustrating that phone has other cloud storage from manufacturer and the phone OS. Creates unnecessary duplication and effort to manage - oh for a competitive MS Phone OS which provides full MS integration a bit like MS Launcher does on the phone and Windows PC.

    To me OneDrive works great. So good I subscribed to a Microsoft 365 Business Basic to get 5TB of storage plus other services in the 365 ecosystem. I have no complaints. I also have a Microsoft 365 family plan with 1Tb of OneDrive per user and it it has some other features like the personal vault to store sensitive data. Syncing among all of my devices is seamless, I have my emulator saves on OneDrive so I can resume my games in any devices.

  • 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.

    I utilize the app mostly for photos backup and upload. The app does what it should do by uploading files and showing you memories from the same day . I have issues with uploading images to folders with an android phone as there are no setting for this. In all cases I feel Microsoft should build a separate app for Photos viewing which is focused on this specifically.

  • 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 have been using this app for years to upload just about everything from documents to my pictures. I like that I can keep the full quality of my pictures. I don't like that it seems that Samsung has partnered with OneDrive and only lets you upload your photos and pictures if they are located on the phone storage (No SD). I see no reason, even technical, that this has to be the option in order to use Samsung's gallery with Onedrive. I think more safety measure need to be put in place as well.

  • 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.

    1TB space for photos and other files - great thing, but app itself is really buggy. Some miniatures are cropped, some pictures in folder won't appear in "Pictures folder only" mode. Lack of ISO information and bars popping out during scrolling is annoying. Photos in albums sorted by modified (not created) date... Please, fix this!

  • Good but More Potential to Fill Capability Gaps Jan 21, 2021

    By Craig's iTunes Account
    A great start and is stable. A few items to note are that while it supports the Personal Vault storage, you cannot edit files stored there within their native apps like Excel etc. you have to move the files out of the vault to edit! It kind of defeats the purpose as it is then only useful to store legacy items vs. sensitive files you use routinely. If this can be enhanced to allow for editing of files in personal Vault it would be fantastic! The user interface is also a bit clunky. It does not allow you to default the view to more traditional list type views, instead it always opens to a screen with large folders that have the file names cut off. There is Lao no ability to sort by name, date etc. Small enhancements like this could make the app ideal but the Personal Vault item above is key, a. Great feature that is largely unusable for current files. Please consider this enhancement!

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Why are we being forced to pay for a photo app when the Samsung phones came equipped with gallery and access to the cloud? We are being ripped off. This app doesn't always show pictures, which makes me worry that they aren't all downloading. Once you lose the photos you can't get them back, because gallery is being discontinued. I'm not very happy, and I'll probably be switching to an iPhone asap.
