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.
What's New in Version 17.3.6967
•Fixed sync reliability bugs.
•Improved application reliability.
I used DropBox and Apple’s iCloud before ultimately switching to OneDrive. Why? DropBox works well but didnt need it since OneDrive came with my Office subscription so decision made on cost basis. Apple iCloud just seemed buggy in syncing and made accessing the files and directory a pain - especially on iOS devices. Ultimately, OneDrive ended up was best in keeping the promise of current information across several devices. Support team roll out continued upgrades and solicit feedback from users. My only gripe is that it complains about files with punctuation in the titles which stops sync and forces renaming of offending files. I wish it were more tolerant or allowed users to automatically authorize character substitutions to address file naming issues. Apart from that…very well done. From a long time Microsoft skeptic, I’m impressed.
I like OneDrive
I wish it were still called SkyDrive…but such is life.
I like the app and because of Microsoft’s co-opetition (that’s a word from the eighties when computer companies co-operated with each other while still competing with each other for the benefit of users.) with Apple, I can have my work OneDrive account and my Personal OneDrive account on the same Mac. I can use either account for Microsoft Office as well as using MS Teams. I have several Mac’s at home and my work machine is Windows 10, so I’m covered all the way around.
The apps is fast does not use too much memory and allows me a lot of flexibility. Worth the Five Star rating.
OneDrive for Mac
I’ve been using OneDrive for Mac for what seems like forever. I’ve used it since it was named skydrive. It has always been reliable and keeps me using a logical naming convention for my files and folders. I’ve seen nothing but improvements for the Mac version in that time. The latest improvements i’ve noticed have been the improved utilities in the menu system of the toolbar. It saves me from needing to open up the online version of my OneDrive folder by nearly 3/4th the time I used to have to open it.
Thank you Microsoft for adding support to us Mac users that also like Microsoft products.
