Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
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 17.3.6517.0809
• We changed an algorithm, and downloads became faster. Who would've thought it!
• [Rolling out] Limited connection at home? You can control the bandwidth that OneDrive uses.
• Fixed an issue where files or folders with accented characters would show the syncing overlay, forever.
• Fixed a couple of issues related to sign-in and setup.
• Fixed a few miscellaneous crashes and bugs.
• The Choose folders dialogue is a little friendlier. Now you can see how big each folder is before you sync it.
Works Great for Me / Not Sure Why So Many Haters
I’ve used OneDrive alongside Google Drive for years. I use Google drive to share a folder with one person, everything else I store in OneDrive. Not sure why so many haters. Works flawlessly for me. Syncs well, speeds are good. Not great, but good. The only annoyance is it will fail to sync files with unusual characters in the name. Not a make or break, but something that annoys from time to time. I also like that I can select not to keep certain folders local. I have an archive folder for older stuff that doesn’t need to be saved locally to save space. The companion iOS app is great and I love that I can protect it with Touch ID.
Lost connection with the folder in the first 5min of use
I really don’t understand why Microsoft products are not tested with real users. Most errors are clear just by watching how people use the apps. I downloaded this app, set it up, tried to change the folder’s name, was able to do it and the app lost connection with the One Drive folder. If you’re thinking “You shoulnd’t have change the name of the folder” you’re missing the point. Hint: “Don’t make me think”. Microsoft products are full of misshaps like this and it makes for a terrible UX.
I went back and set the whole thing up again, but the folder sits right below my Dropbox folder that behaves flawlessly. I’m only using One Drive because is the standard for the organization I work for. If it were a better product I’d definetely would use it more.
Wish you could easily unselect all folders on selective sync
Just recently installed this app and switched from Google Drive. The one annoying part I found during the installation was when I selected the selective sync option, so I could select only certain folders there didn’t seem to be an intutive way to mass unselect all and then manually select the few folders I wanted. I ended up having to manually unselect about 40 folders, which was somewhat annoying. Other than the it seems to do what I need it to do on my Macbook.
