OneDrive is the one place for everything in your life. It gives you free online storage for all your personal files, so you can access them from your Mac and any other devices you use – iPhone, iPad, PC, Windows Phone or Android. With OneDrive for Business, you also get storage for your work files so you can share and collaborate on them with other people at your work or school/university. The OneDrive app for Mac makes it easy to work with your OneDrive files on your Mac:
•Access your OneDrive files directly from the Finder, including attachments that you’ve saved to OneDrive from Outlook.com, and documents and spreadsheets that you’ve created from Office Online.
•Work with your OneDrive files even when you’re offline. Your changes will sync automatically the next time you’re online.
•Choose the folders in your OneDrive that you want to sync on your Mac.
•Add several files or folders to OneDrive at a time by dragging them to the OneDrive folder. By putting your files in OneDrive, you can access them from anywhere and have a backup in case something happens to your computer.
•Easily open, edit and create docs and other files in OneDrive from applications such as Word or Excel.
Thank you for using OneDrive. We are always looking to update OneDrive to bring you the latest performance improvements and bug fixes for the best experience.
Ratings and Reviews

It has great potential and is being upgraded all the time. It did not work at all but this was possibly because of low speed internet. However Dropbox worked perfectly at the same speeds! It hangs and has to be restarted. My greatest problem is that you have to think about it at all. Such programs should not require your attention and the subsequent loss of productivity. They should just run. This is the critical link between your work and storage.
Everything about this product and the Microsoft website is too complex. It is writtenby people who do not need to use it for productive labour. Simplicity. Simplicity. Simplicity. That is why you use a Mac. If you wanted complexity I would use Windows. However it is what it is and they are always improving it. I works most of the time and a reboot fixes the other problems.
Integrates well with MacOS
I use a MacBook Pro and a Desktop PC, and sometimes it’s not always easy to get MacOS and Windows 10 talking to each other. OneDrive is one of the apps that makes having a foot in both worlds easier. There are minor cosmetic differences between the two, but on the whole it is the same experience.
It hasn’t always been so - a couple of years ago my review would have been 3 or 4 stars, but improvments are being made regularly and Microsoft are to be congratulated for embracing the fact that not everyone uses Windows, or at least not all of the time.
Really good (but could be better)
It’s broadly excellent - I got my 1Tb with an Office365 sub, and alongside the browser versions of the office apps, it’s reinvigorated my work on the road (and, actually, got me using my iPad for work again). A couple of niggles: because it doesn’t like non-alphanumeric characters in file names, I get sync problems with a BUNCH of files. Then I’ve had a couple of instances of syncing just not happening, and it’s not clear why. Hopefully those will be tidied up soon. Even with them, it’s been better for me than Dropbox thanks to the Office 365 integration.
