Painful to use every single time
by venkatprabakar on 2021/04/18 00:25
With all due respect, I’m willing to use the app for all my mobile storage needs but the experience has been painful to say the least. Tried submitting few issues, no luck. Listing few of my pain points below 1. Opening links from outlook app results in infinite loop between app and browser. 2. Indicates/shows no content while browsing the app during crucial moments. 3. App doesn’t even inform even when there are network/bandwidth issues, instead it assumes that there are no content to show.

Not an apple product for sure
by Rob Nikon on 2021/04/17 13:41
This software is classic Microsoft. Bugs. Issues. Massive pains in your rear when doing something as simple as changing the name of a notebook for onenote. Like so many other companies, my employer uses Microsoft products. If it wasn’t for that I would use something apple based. Like them or love them... apples does connectivity right. Microsoft can barely get out of its own way. In general the app will do what it is meant to. Not great... but it does the basics.
Missing basic features
by evanston, illinois on 2021/04/17 12:28
Copy to When I’m moving files it kicks me to main menu every time In move to it uses big folders and they aren’t in order
Microsoft is doing a great effort to make this mediocre
by only one nickname allowed on 2021/04/17 02:43
The editing tools for editing a pdf used to be good. Then one day MS decided they needed ruin a perfectly good product. And so they changed the tool bar. But it wasn’t bad enough. So they went back to the drawing board and asked themselves “how can we make this worse?” And so they kept changing the editing tools. They took away tools and, merged some options and decided for what small handful of colors we could chose to annotate our documents..... AND THEY ACHIEVED SUCCESS. I now refuse to use it on my iPad. GOOD JOB PEOPLE!! Now good back several versions and return the editing tool bar. Thanks.
Needs to be fixed! ASAP!
by I got this again on 2021/04/17 01:27
2021.04.15 The editing toolbar and options change constantly. And not for the better. A while back there was a tool bar that allowed many options - now the option have significantly decreased. Why? Not very happy with the options. Doesn’t fulfill my needs on the iPad. 2019.04.13 Seriously, one can’t copy a file without going through some tortuous routing. Microsoft - you have so much room for improvement. 2019.01.16 Update I can still not get PDFs to annotate. Renders this app useless to me. Please fix. 2018.12.18 update Although this update is supposed to improve the PDF annotation I am still not getting the toolbar to perform annotations. What gives MS? Still can't improve my rating. 2018.11.18 update So no ability to edit as in previous versions. Multiple comments made but no response. I even went through the app and received a glib "thank you fro brining this to our attention." response. Now how about fixing the problem?!?! 2018.11.10 update Continuing to get worse. I used to be able to edit PDFs in this app. This new down date has destroyed this app. I am not the only person who has commented on this. HORRIBLE!!! Useless!!! Needs to be fixed. July 27 MICROSOFT YOU NEED TO FIX THIS NOW. I have many files in my one drive including folders with PowerPoint, VTS, etc. It is not allowing me to click on the folder and download all the files but rather is making me select each file independently and sequentially (it will only download one file at a time) to down load the files to my hard drive. I spend way too much time in areas with poor streaming capabilities to not have hard copies on my iPad. In addition some files don't have a download option. One must select the "open in another app" to have it down load. A huge waste of time and a huge FAIL ( yes, a four letter word that begins with "F"). MICROSOFT YOU NEED TO FIX THIS. NOW.
Current changes
by Madelexi on 2021/04/16 22:54
I use to love the app. I use to download pics of my baby girl. But now the app is super annoying and crap after the current changes you have made to it. Before these new changes, I could just download the pictures from other apps like LINE that my wife takes of her straight to the photo part of the app. Now I have to download the pictures and videos onto my phone ( that’s if they will download) and then put them onto the OneDrive app manually. Sometimes it takes like an hour for them to show up if they show up at all, which use to do instantly. Yes, I am looking for a different place to put these pics now.. that’s how much I hate these new changes.
Very frustrating.
by L.K.A.T. on 2021/04/16 17:35
I’ve used this for college for a year now. It’s great to have my files synced across devices, but only if the files actually save. I’m on an iPad, and under the impression that the files sync on their own. But I have lost 4 files, 2 last semester and 2 this semester, right before important deadlines. I have not had the same problem with other platforms, like Word or Google Docs. It’s infuriating.
Going from 30GB to 5GB
by faviles on 2021/04/16 04:07
I'm one of those loyal customers that Microsoft punished by lowering the storage capacity from 30GB to 5GB without a valid reason. This is ridiculous in modern times (2017+) so I’ll give you a one star rating until my last breath. Two years later (2019) It appears that Dark MODE is more important for Microsoft than a good amount of free storage for your customers.
No file extensions; no refresh
by LAX20531 on 2021/04/15 21:43
Deleted files aren’t removed from display. Why must I close and open the app just so deleted files are removed from view?! This basic operational stuff is something Box, Dropbox, and G Drive have had for ages. Why can’t it display file extensions? This is a security risk and it’s important since files of different types may use the same name. Why isn’t there a default view option? I never want to see the tiles except on the photos tab. Not related to the app, but Windows changes the dates all the time. Show us the FULL PATH to the file. The last sub file isn’t sufficient when I have an Expenses folder under folders for every year. Boolean search! Search is a disaster. Not only is there no documentation, it is unreliable. The same file path issue exists fails with search since only the last folder is listed. Business users don’t need photo upload. Split the app if you must, but prioritize development on those who generate your revenue. I’m stuck with OneDrive because of its interdependency with O365/Sharepoint. But get back to the basics and stop adding useless features that few people want or need.
Can’t Synch
by SDJ999 on 2021/04/15 16:10
OneDrive frequently can’t synch files and can’t merge changes to shared files. Offers to save a copy instead.
Simply amazing
by Elvis the Water Master on 2021/04/14 23:16
For safe data storage this software and system is unparalleled. I especially appreciate the security and ease. Simply awesome.
Terrible integration

Terrible integration with anything not-Microsoft
Files don’t refresh and load properly within folder views
by YodaChewyStarz on 2021/04/14 15:25
I have updated this app to the latest and I continue to have problems with files not appearing in the folder structures. The app just sits there and spins. I have to close it and re-open it over and over again to even get it to load sub-folder data. Terrible experience in comparison to Google Drive or Apple iCloud which both work seamlessly. This product is absolutely terrible. I even run this on an iPad Pro so the iPad is not the limiting factor here.
Two things.
by DannyGarcia2 on 2021/04/13 22:50
1. Let us turn off the “look back at...” photo preview. I hate to enter the app and see unnecessary pictures on the main page. 2. Bring back a music player similar to Groove. It was one of the best thing that Microsoft have developed.

One Drive
by ❤️🔥🧡 Cee on 2021/04/10 17:15
I can’t delete photos and it cannot download. My one drive has been trying to download 38 photos for three weeks. Not very user-friendly
Lost all my photos. Have to download them AGAIN
by Jcfffff on 2021/04/10 08:34
I purchased this app because of the large space and use of Microsoft documents. But there’s a MAJOR problem with downloading my pictures. I hadn’t backed up my photos for about two months, so I had about a few hundred to update. However, somehow, ALL my photos are now gone!! That’s 6000 photos that need to be downloaded again. And the process to reinstall everything is slower than a turtle walking in syrup. There has to be a way to sync everything without having to keep the app open all the time. So frustrating!! Please fix, because I want to continue using the app without going to a new platform.

No longer usable
by K1zzzz on 2021/04/09 20:22
The claim the last update allows writing from the iOS again is false. It’s time to find mother cloud provider as this issue has been going on for too long.
Signature Issue
by ThunderTorch on 2021/04/09 10:26
When signing a PDF document the resulting PDF has the signature as an added object that can be moved, copied and deleted. This needs to be fixed as it could lead to potential misuse of the shared resulted document no matter the shared method.
Worst app I have ever seen.
by Explorer 259 on 2021/04/09 09:18
OneDrive takes many hours (from 2 to 16 hours) to upload 1 to 5 photos taken with my iPhone XS. But the worst feature is that it uploads multiple copies of the same photo. Some photos have 70 duplicates. Some have over 100. One photo has 150 copies in the uploaded files. This, of course, consumes a hugely unnecessary amount of storage. My free basic 5 GB of OneDrive storage has 3.71 GB used up already, most of which consists of the unnecessary duplicates. It is possible to delete the files, but that’s a very time consuming chore, since each file must be selected individually. Three separated buttons must be pressed to send it to the recycling bin. The first button is to select the unwanted file, then you must select “recycling bin,” then you must select “yes” to answer the question of whether you are sure you want to delete that file. This process must be repeated for the many hundreds of duplicate files. Their tech support was no help. First they had me go to my iPhone settings and press “clear cache” for the OneDrive app. That did not work. Then they had me delete the app, power off and reset my phone, then reload the app. None of it helped. When the app was reloaded, all of the unwanted copies came right back in the files page. What an onerous and inconvenient app to use!!!

Latest update breaks integration with Files App
by danieltyu on 2021/04/08 01:35
It used to be that I can save to my Onedrive account through the Files App integration with Onedrive. With the latest update this integration is broken. I only have read only access through Files App. I can save through the Onedrive App though. However the user experience of doing that is worse, as I am unable to name my files before saving. I have to go back in through Onedrive to rename my file. It seems the latest update was a huge regression!
Question
by RetroCollector on 2021/04/07 19:28
Why is it that you reduced the free storage when renaming from SkyDrive to OneDrive? I want to know why. You never provided a reason for the reduction.
Read Only
by Eng, J on 2021/04/07 12:12
It would be great if it were not read only. How long is it going to stay like this? I don’t want to pay if it’s staying as read only for a long while.
Remove functional limitation
by Aj Gu on 2021/04/06 03:56
The app is a great utility for consolidating documents on cloud, difficult to live without. Currently it is read-only on iOS since last couple of weeks. Please make it functional earliest.
Love One Drive
by gxf52 on 2021/04/05 00:13

Good App/OneSimpleProblem
by Prince_The_OG on 2021/04/04 23:38
I gives this a 4 star because if one simple problem. I can’t save my videos. I can save my photos but not my videos. And I can’t edit my videos when I can’t save them. This app is really good for storage. You get extra free storage which can be pretty useful if you don’t have any storage on your pc or no more storage in your photos for phone. And when your saving something it downloads it in a instance. When your transferring data, it only takes a minute or 2. It’s basically icloud but better and you can create albums to organize your photos and videos so you don’t have e to go through them all. This app has saved me multiple times in terms of finding my card number when I needed it since I put everything into a album. You should download this app but please fix the not being able to save videos to your photos

30 days free. ( Scam)
by tonyfromtheBronx on 2021/04/03 18:46
So, March 28, 2021. I was told I was out of space, and if I don’t upgrade I will lose my pictures and documents by April 2, 2021 @ 2am. So with all being said I upgraded to window 360 with 1tb and 30 days free trial. I got billed for $6.95 the minute I upgraded to Microsofft 360 personal Vault. So, I called billing several times and they gave some lame excuse and would not refund my $6.95 totally false advertising just to get your money........Don’t fall for free month.
Stopped Accepting File Uploads
by Mightyherc on 2021/04/03 18:42

My dad is as a computer genius I remember being the first person to have a home computer I didn’t realize how big that was then because I was little. I don’t have many memories of him but I know he was supposed to work for Microsoft so this has always been a happy memory of my dad. Unfortunately he passed away in 2015 in Kings county WA. His computer was stolen before my sister could get out there. I don’t have much information about him. But I remember how amazing he was with computers.
Uploading is super slow
by Tuesdays Green on 2021/04/02 18:33
It’s bad enough that I have to keep this app open for it to sync but in addition uploads take forever! I had this app on Android and I don’t believe it was this bad which makes me think the problem is specific to the app itself.
Good for backing data up to the cloud but lacking at photo management
by Zbyniu on 2021/04/02 15:53
If this app is considered as data backup app then it does what it should to do - five stars. But as photo management app it is very lacking, especially when compared to established apps like Google Photos. Obvious features are still missing and I saw discussions in various forums about adding these features (such as sorting photos or changing display order of photos within albums) in threads that are a couple of years old and this still has not been added. Clueless Microsoft. So as photo management app - one star only.

garbage on ipados
by Songfire on 2021/04/01 18:57
Any app that says it supports other cloud sync tools via the Files app is lying. I've lost work because OneDrive refuses to recognize the changes made to its files from code apps like GoCoEdit, Texpad, and TexEditPlus (which simply freezes upon opening any OneDrive file).
PDF conversion
by W-mouse on 2021/04/01 17:48
The app is fantastic. A great tool for my business. However, it doesn’t have a way to convert pics (jpeg) into pdf files. I have to use other apps (like Genius Scan) to do so. I hope your can update this tool. Good job guys!
Please Fix iOS Files Integration, please.
by jir0 on 2021/04/01 07:25
3 stars because it works, but -2 because of being read-only in the iOS/iPad OS Files system. I hope Microsoft and Apple resolves this soon.
Absolute trash
by cmal92 on 2021/03/31 19:47

Discontinued
by spero194 on 2021/03/31 18:48
I’m fighting to like this app and service and I’m not sure why. Oh, it’s because I just paid for a 15 month subscription for a discontinued service that removes files from the encrypted “personal vault” that was advertised as the most secure cloud storage available. Why is this service removing files from the “personal vault”, and making copies of folders with my device name and leaving them exposed outside this “secure cloud storage”? I’m going back to Google after I demand a refund. File storage shouldn’t be this difficult. A simple Bing search for troubleshooting this will reveal how long this issue has been around.

by simonh000 on 2021/03/31 00:57
Great app I use it everyday. On problem. Why would anyone even want to shake the phone to give Microsoft feedback? I know you can disable it. But in what world would you think this is a good default setting? There is absolutely nothing in my life that I shake to give feedback.
Still broken! READ ONLY.
by any1but me on 2021/03/30 15:38
Obviously Microsoft is not interested is fixing the app so that IOS or iPadOS users can save to OneDrive unless using their other apps (Office or OneNote) to do so. Going on six weeks now with no solution. It certainly encourages one to look elsewhere for an online storage solution. Not sure how much longer I’m willing to put up with the issue.
Read only?
by justmelara on 2021/03/30 00:08
Almost one month now with this read-only nonsense. Why is this app even available on Files? If it’s just to taunt people, mission accomplished. Please fix this.

Transfer files from phone to PC
by ETHREAL1 on 2021/03/29 21:32
This used to be my go to way to transfer files quickly between my phone to my PC, but as of late for no particular reason the integration with the files app is broken and you can no longer save things to OneDrive from the files app.... other services still work so I know it’s something with OneDrive. Thankfully I have a NAS I can use instead. It is dumb that for some reason MS has decided to not allow this anymore.
Invasive uncontrollable & useless
by Chrispatsox on 2021/03/29 17:14
I've never seen a file sharing app literally force its way into all aspects of my life. What Microsoft continuously tries to convince everyone is a feature, is really uncontrollable Invasive Spyware. Am done, I've given one drive years to become a an online Photo video back back up, thats it. I don't want nor need Microsoft Spyware Sharing service, just a back up. Apple and Google are just as guilty as Microsoft. Amazon is better at hiding their nefarious activities, akin to Facebook, Both offer unlimited, photo storage , steal and share my stuff like Microsoft, difference is, They're not taking up a ton of Hard Drive space and forcing its self on every internet connected device, I own like Apple MS and Google, do. Amazon photo video back a lot less intrusion cheaper easier to use alternative

I can’t upload anything from my iPhone. It just hangs. Can’t upload photos from my camera, and can’t upload pdf “scanned documents” from note all. Just says “waiting”. Can upload to google drive though no problem. Bad Microsoft. I have to look into new cloud to transfer probably iCloud I guess.
Can’t upload videos
by Shepvols on 2021/03/26 20:09
Every time there is an upload, OneDrive keeps getting stuck on videos. Then it just sits there and won’t upload for weeks! The last update helped but it’s doing the same thing again. Been paying for extra storage for a couple of years but OneDrive is just not up to par. Maybe it’s because I have an IPhone but other apps have no problem! Part of Windows 10 I hate!!!!
So Little Control
by Emerald_Griffin on 2021/03/26 19:13
Here is a story rant about how frustrating this is. I first downloaded this app to transfer and access files through my phone and computer, as well as generally store files. My icloud storage was months past full. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of selecting camera upload (when you have it off, there is a constant message nagging you to enable it) The upload lasted hours, and I couldn't turn it off until it was complete. My phone became laggy. Then, at the last three huge files, some videos, the camera upload got stuck. Every minute or so, one of those files would finish uploading, then OneDrive would say its storage was full; it would delete that file and try again to upload it. I couldn't turn this off. To get it working, I deleted a bunch of files from my phone and their pairs on onedrive. Finally, the three videos uploaded, and OneDrive was pleased to announce "Your storage is full. Please click to upgrade" or something like that. Soon after, I discovered that Adobe Creative Cloud (which I have) allows 100 GB. I moved all of my photos and videos from my phone, computer, and google storage, to Lightroom. But now, for some reason, I CANNOT DELETE MY PHOTOS FROM ICLOUD. Whether on my phone or computer, files will magically reappear after being deleted. I may have successfully deleted some, but I cannot tell. Yes, I have camera upload turned off. Also, I have to constantly tell it to please not upload the photos on my computer. On my computer, I contantly get the "Your OneDrive is full. Please pay us." message. Also, it's difficult to access non-photo files from the phone app. So, yeah. I hate this service.

All of my hand held devices are Apple but I still prefer to use a PC over Mac. I’ve been trying to use iCloud as my cloud storage on all devices. After 1 year I give up! Despite how well Apple products work iCloud syncing to Windows is a miserable failure! Decided to switch to OneDrive and it is flawless across all my devices. Well done Microsoft.
Won’t upload photos...app crashes
by SC Cy on 2021/03/24 17:21
Photos/videos won’t upload and the app crashes.
Could be amazing, but it’s not
by ;0)DAC on 2021/03/24 16:41
After much deliberation I went with One Drive for file storage and sharing. It’s been a mixed bag, but mostly disappointing. I use my iPad Pro for business - taking client notes, sending clients notes/forms, storing client data, etc. It takes multiple attempts to open One Drive before I can access any data. I open One Drive, nothing appears, I wait. Then I close the app, wait, and try again. This time I can usually see some files, but am unable to open them. So, I close the app again, wait - again, then reopen. Sometimes on the third try it works, other times it takes 4 or more attempts. When I use One Drive on my MacBook it usually works fine. I was searching for a data solution that would allow me the option of working from any device, most often my iPad Pro, accessing data seamlessly and efficiently. That has not been my experience.
Does not work
by please dont get this app on 2021/03/24 14:56
When I open my shared folders, there are missing folders and in each shared folder it says there are no files. It has been this way since installing the app months ago. I am disappointed.
Apps doesn’t talk to Sharepoint
by 2KLK2 on 2021/03/24 00:47
The shared libraries which should connect to Sharepoint doesn’t. Microsoft is horrible at getting things in their own company to work. Probably the two worst apps I have on my devices.

whats the trick to select multiple files
by Kanbalhi on 2021/03/23 12:22
There seems to be a trick in selecting multiple files. but the UI seems so poorly designed the combination dosent work most of the time. Either the screen scrolls or it tries to drag the selected file to another folder. developers should make it easier to use selection multiple files with gesture swipe much easier.
Now worthless
by PileofCrap on 2021/03/23 11:32
Microsoft has intentionally put the app in read only mode. It’s now useless when you try to save files in any iOS app. Don’t bother downloading.

Excellent Cloud Storage For A Budget
by Digimon_3D on 2021/03/20 23:08
For $6.99 a month. It’s been a perfect storage solution for all my needs. Wish I could store everything in the cloud. They only allow up to 1TB of offsite storage per user. Family share has 5TB of storage, But it’s still 1TB per user no matter what. I just wish I can store more like google drive without paying an arm and a leg for storage. I like ICloud for 2TB for $19.99 a month. It’s is inconvenient for pulling in and out data as needed. OneDrive has a easy interface plus comes with Microsoft Office as a bonus. No complaints when it comes to OneDrive otherwise.

Read only access

This app used to work great but now I can only read files, not write
It’s no google for sure
by meh meh meeeehh on 2021/03/19 23:26
Google drive has been flawless. I would like to transfer all my files to one drive, considering I pay for office and have a 1tb drive on one drive. But it sometimes works, sometimes not. Some of my computers I can not even open one drive. And if you search for help, there is a whole laundry list of the commands to type in, or clear cache or other stuff. It became more trouble than it is worth for sure.
multi billion dollar corporation that can't fix native file integration in a timely manner.
by reaganlu on 2021/03/17 16:23
I share files through Onedrive between my iPad, my windows desktop, and my iPhone. These files are essential to: my dissertation, my position as a TA for research courses, and my only source of income (amateur graphic design that I work on on both my iPad and my desktop). My desktop is currently rendering a video and I'm not about to attempt to overwhelm the CPU as I organize and download ~20 files for 3 different assignments. With my iCloud drive full and the limitations of Dropbox creating an avenue where I can only use Onedrive to share files between computers, I am left unable to be productive (i.e. downloading the needed files to the cloud) for these 40 minutes of rendering a lecture video for my students. Both Apple and Microsoft have created an environment of low cooperation between themselves and the result is not "healthy competition in a free market," but is instead "throttling the accessibility of programs to users who have decided to invest in both companies rather than just one." These companies are putting their profit margins above basic software operations (writing to files). These corporations with a healthy amount of capital end up making us (the consumers) pay for their profit-driven lack of support for software interactions essential to millions. Get your sh*t together, Microsoft. You have the resources to not spend 3+ weeks fixing a problem created by your greed driven placement of unnecessary barriers between competitors.
Removed save function?! Then remove from App Store!
by aap997 on 2021/03/17 06:03
Why have you intentionally turned off the ability to save files from your device to OneDrive? Just remove it from the App Store until you figure it out because it’s totally useless. And thanks for the heads up that you turned off saving files, I’ve been wasting time thinking the problem was on my end. Zero Stars Until Functionality Returns!

Beware of Update!
by 15quamina on 2021/03/16 10:35
Beware of updating the app! The promise that “ You’ll still be able to open One Drive files in the iOS files app” is FALSE. You will loose access to all of your One Drive files if you access via iOS files app. Attempting to access your files gives you following error message; “CONTENT UNAVAILABLE This folder content could not be displayed because of an unknown error”. Microsoft have minimize what they have done by saying “We know this is not ideal” What an understatement! This is extremely disruptive if you primarily use the iOS mail app! You are effectively denied access to your One Drive files. I’ve been debating for years weather I just get a Mac. This is the “straw that broke the camel back”. I’m getting a Mac and moving all my files to iCloud.
New update messed up OneDrive and apple files connection.
by MMolch on 2021/03/16 02:54
I can no longer access my OneDrive files on my files app
Expansive functionality minus one
by Hypermatt on 2021/03/15 23:03
I truly appreciate the app features; app pin option, navigation format, and loading speed. One feature I dearly miss is an option to stop one, or range of photos from auto upload. Once auto-upload targets a subject, I have to wait for it to upload no matter how long it takes, or if unwanted, then delete it after it uploads. This doesn't sound smart. The selection tool should work for targeted items as well, and provide option to pause or skip from upload.
One Drive
by Reasonable guy 1000 on 2021/03/15 21:20
They say that they care about your privacy but that is only until they want to have access for their purposes. If they really cared the files would be ‘end to end’ encrypted. Also, the app update that they are working on the app and that the files are ‘temporarily’ set to read only. So, which of my files are being set to read only and when will I be able to have full control again?
Useful but one thing needs improvement
by 3399tiff on 2021/03/15 19:24
I really like using OneDrive to store my files - able to access from phone or laptop very useful. One thing I’ve noticed that needs improvement - when saving a file to OneDrive on my iPhone, I can’t change the file name while saving it. I can pick which folder is goes to, but it saves with whatever the default file name is...so I have to go open the OneDrive app, find the file and rename is correctly. Really should be able to click on the file name and change it before saving, like other apps do.
Good but needs rotate button
by cdavis134 on 2021/03/15 16:14
Great app but need the ability to rotate pages in pdf files. Would give it a higher rating if it had that functionality.
Where are my files?
by Jesswolfe50 on 2021/03/15 08:02
I use this for most of my cloud storage because I have more space. And I’m often accessing files on my iPad. It works great till it stops. Now I can’t write or edit files on my iPad. I can’t save PDFs, which I literally do daily. Because you decided that files should be read only while you get your act together. This is incredibly bad UI (I don’t know how long it took me to figure out this was your issue, not mine). And I’m sure you don’t care. Lovely customer experience.

Amazing Application
by elenagevene on 2020/10/06 02:59
I researched multiple applications to back up all my devices ie phones, lap tops, and desktops. I took the time to compare each detail between all the options available. Given the amount of storage needed and price I chose to go with OneDrive and it was the best decision. I was able to back up information on all my devices and coincidently a few weeks after my Mac book of 12+ years gave me the black screen of death. What would have been a devastating moment of photos and documents that would have been lost turned into a humorous moment knowing nothing was lost aside from the 12+ year old laptop. I was so grateful I had backed up everything to OneDrive because I didn’t loose anything nor did I have to go through the trouble of paying someone to retrieve the data I would have lost. It was all already saved to OneDrive which I can access from anywhere on any device. Do yourself a favor and bite the bullet and get OneDrive! You can thank me later.
The Best For Online Storage and Sync Files
by Kedna78 on 2019/09/18 17:12
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
by JP Mears on 2020/04/23 22:28
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
by NicksOtherName on 2020/08/28 12:15
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.
Manipulation Labelled as Convenience
by MC017 PKG on 2021/02/23 02:03
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.
Great App for Saving Everything!
by Reazorsharp on 2019/07/04 13:04
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.
Wonderful to use & frustrating to understand
by LeetahCammy on 2019/03/16 17:53
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.
Not the best imo
by _kayysea on 2020/01/07 05:22
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
by DeTate on 2020/01/02 09:49
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.
Great for groups working together
by SProwett on 2019/08/07 17:04
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.
Power Users, this app isn’t for you.
by tonygaglio on 2020/04/06 00:28
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.
Overall good but...
by Keith in Tucson on 2021/01/27 11:46
As a user who uses Windows desktop computers and Microsoft office, but also has an iPad and an iPhone, this has been a godsend, however in the update process critical features frequently become broken. Password-protected Microsoft office files can not be opened on OneDrive in iOS, but can on Windows platforms. Unfortunately, when OneDrive is installed, it prohibits launching of a file via the browser based app A workaround to the problem of password-protected documents is using the iOS version of the Microsoft Office app on the iPhone, however iPad users cannot use it unless they have an active subscription to Office 365 because there is a screen size limit for the free version prohibiting use on the iPad. Hoping they fix the broken inability to decrypt/open password-protected file via the iOS OneDrive app. Has been broken for a while now 🙁 UPDATE January 27, 2021: since iOS was updated to version 14.4, this problem is resolved.
Can’t use it to judge — stuck on advertisement!
by jcbroadbent_1961 on 2020/06/09 22:31
I’m trying not to give Microsoft OneDrive a bad review, but I can’t use it to know if it’s worthwhile. Logging on, then scrolling through the pages quickly brings me to an advertisement for Premium OneDrive services, including a 7 day free trial to Microsoft Office 365. There is a little X in the upper right corner to cluck on and close the advertisement, but it doesn’t function! I can’t go backwards and I can’t go forward — unless I want to read the Terms of Service or Sign up for a monthly subscription! Finally, I gave up trying to delete the page which was preventing me from moving forward and actually using the app. I signed up for the Premium Service making a mental note to cancel my subscription before my 7 day trial expired and they started debuting me for $6.99 every month. The next time I opened the app I was confronted with same same advertisement, even though I had already signed up for it. BOTTOM LINE: Attention Microsoft! Either fix your ad so I can click out of it, or delete it from the OneDrive app!!! This doesn’t help me want to use Microsoft products!!!
Accessibility
by Wuest2 on 2020/07/31 17:26
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.
Solid update with the recent version
by JB_Seattle on 2018/01/31 05:44
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.
Needs more capabilities for multitasking (iPadOS 14)
by Ahmed Kh. Goran on 2020/10/14 08:20
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.
Unreliable
by MDBoyz on 2019/03/31 16:51
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.
Better Cloud Choice
by Merchantshipper on 2017/10/31 03:48
I use two cloud services. I use the Apple iCloud for work (200GB), and the Microsoft One Drive for personal (1TB). I tried both in order to compare them to see which is better, and I think MSOD is the better of the two. What I especially like is the ease of uploading folders; however, I am surprised you can’t upload folders using Microsoft Internet Explorer. Strangely enough, you must use chrome. The MSOD is better syncing capabilities. I especially like how the MSOD app can be protected With biometric password access. iCloud does not have that, so my files on the iCloud service are more vulnerable. One advantage of the iCloud service is that you can buy smaller memory like 200 GB for $2.99/m, whereas MS sells 1 TB for $69/y, which is high, but it comes with Office 365. Both services should offer 500GB.
Good but More Potential to Fill Capability Gaps
by Craig's iTunes Account on 2021/01/21 12:26
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!

I gives this a 4 star because if one simple problem. I can’t save my videos. I can save my photos but not my videos. And I can’t edit my videos when I can’t save them. This app is really good for storage. You get extra free storage which can be pretty useful if you don’t have any storage on your pc or no more storage in your photos for phone. And when your saving something it downloads it in a instance. When your transferring data, it only takes a minute or 2. It’s basically icloud but better and you can create albums to organize your photos and videos so you don’t have e to go through them all. This app has saved me multiple times in terms of finding my card number when I needed it since I put everything into a album. You should download this app but please fix the not being able to save videos to your photos
Only Organizes New Uploads
by zhugedai12 on 2018/09/23 16:02
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.
Intuitive Digital Document Storage Drive
by stellar parallax on 2019/06/06 06:53
Very easy to learn, visually offers 3 different screen view of your files - my favorite is the one where you see folder icons (although I wonder if there a way to add color options for each folder, and then maybe digital sticky notes to mark important documents of different sizes and various color palettes) appeals to a different type of person, I love the file folder icon layout very grateful! Taught several realtor benefit of using OneDrive and they caught on quickly, so thank you very much. Also can you please add a system that alerts each agent of important deadlines? And finally could we make it so you can take certain files out of a folder and add the removed to broader group? Y’all have created wonderful software!
Corruption to promote Office
by The Way Climax on 2019/09/27 13:21
A while ago, OneDrive could open any Office documents directly from the app for the general purpose of viewing. During an update, they removed that feature and made you download Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to view it to promote these Office apps. This is seriously corrupt and I want OneDrive to be able to view documents without having to download other apps. I would still be fine with Office if they work nicely and smoothly. Office apps are buggy, glitchy and they have multiple errors that I hate, like automatically editing a Read Only word doc. I think Microsoft knows this and has the ability to fix it perfectly, but they are just toning down the app on iOS to make it feel worse than on Windows. Onedrive and the Office suite used to be pretty good and not buggy at all, but recent efforts have made them near unusable, with new interface and crappy scrolling. If Microsoft does not fix this ASAP, I will stop using Office and OneDrive on my iPhone and tell everyone of your dirty practices.
Useful but Why Does it Need Location Services Continuously
by KevinPurcell on 2019/11/30 12:08
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.
App use to be better overall but there’s new changes that I don’t like
by Jlrodjr on 2021/02/19 05:05
Biggest issue now is that the tags feature is no longer available and any tags that were on the files you manually put and onedrive automatically put are gone so can’t even search through tags that already existed on the files before the change. Also a major change that make this once very good cloud app very convenient when searching other than tags was the ability to search by specific words through your document files and on photos and screen shots themselves which was a great feature but no longer works. I have been a 365 subscriber for several years but with those 2 features i just listed has made me start looking in to a different cloud service and app to store and backup my stuff. Hoping before I find a different cloud I like better that microsoft brings back those features so I won’t need to change to a different providers cloud that does have those features.
Used to be good
by Vanbushi on 2017/12/27 09:16
I have been using Onedrive for a few months now (1TB). Everything used to work really nice. It was nice to have everything from my Xbox One, PC, and phone all synced up. FIXED -*Since I have upgraded my phone from an iPhone 6S to and iPhone X, I have been having crashing issues. I’ll start the app and it will load just fine. After a moment or two the app will freeze up and crash. I went to the MS troubleshooting page. It says to delete the app, restart the phone, and then redownload the app. I did all the steps. Still having the same issues. I’ll give the developer a week or so to come up with a solution, if there isn’t one in a timely manner, I will be canceling my subscription, and move onto another cloud service. If the app is fixed, I will review and edit my rating. Until then it’s a 1 Star. - FIXED Pros: Nice syncing for all of your devices. Pricing is not bad for the amount of storage you get. Cons: You can’t have more than one personal account synced. I’d like to be able to have my wife back up her phone to my storage, so that I wouldn’t need to purchase an entire cloud service for her. App is currently not usable, crashes upon start up.
One Drive Not Ready for Prime Time
by Frustrated Customer 1000000000 on 2020/10/03 16:40
I use OneDrive at work , home for personal files and on my iPhone. Can’t really recommend it to people. My iphone OneDrive is constantly out of date showing me old files from weeks ago that were updated recently. At work, the sync feature constantly gets stuck on some file with no help to fix or resolve it. I also can’t trust OneDrive as it has lost, destroyed or caused important personnel files to disappear forever. No backups or way to restore. I pay for a second service to backup my home files encrypted to another storage location. OneDrive has some good features and is better than iCloud, which isn’t saying much. Not interested in Google Drive as they have their nose in too much of my business as it is. OneDrive could be good if programmers would look at it like a User, instead of trying to impress their bosses with useless or incomplete features and design.
After the biggest update, it doesn’t keep pictures or videos in order
by Toxy24 on 2018/09/20 15:25
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.
very disappointed Especially when working with pictures
by SamS_GTUSA on 2018/08/22 13:07
I have purchased 365 Licenses for me and my family With which Microsoft offers one terabyte a onedrive, and I primarily use one drive to back up our pictures. I don’t usually write reviews but because I got very annoyed with one drive and it’s slow performance and many errors while managing pictures, I got fed up with it. Yes we have lot of pictures and duplicates, so I have been trying to consolidate them, but every time I try to do so, I get frustrated by onedrive’s perforamce. I try to select multiple file and delete. Not only it take a long time to refresh, and no my download upload internet speed is not slow , I have highest offered by bright House fiber optics. Too many times onedrive will freeze, that is she using a desktop, other it shuts down if I am using the app on my IPhone. Bottom line, I am disappointed the most because my expectations of a paid for MICROSOFT product to be close to perfect and this is exactly the opposite.
Double dipping on storage
by __Richi__ on 2018/05/30 17:15
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.
Improvements required
by Mikey T Ward on 2020/07/04 00:19
Love what you have done in the past with this app but needs more work. Needs to have a way to show which folders or files I am sharing and have it show with who and a way to adjust acess levels or remove them from the shared folders or files. Also need the opetion to share files and folders like what I would do on you website but needs to be done in the app as well so we can be more predictive and can do more on each devise. Also can you also list all storage upgrade options so that if I need to buy more storage I can see all options and not just the next step up from what I have. Also make a videos tab so I can have all folder files listed in its own category so it would be easer and faster to acess those files in the app and do this to the website as well. Also need to add support of adding more than 1 personal onedrive account to the app as some of us need to separate personal filEs from ones belonging to a boys scout troop.
If this isn’t hell, then I do not know what is.
by ThrowOutTheApp on 2019/11/09 22:08
I can count on one hand the number of times that this app has worked smoothly and without errors. It is so unfortunate that it somehow weaseled its way into being a mainstay at my academic institution. Googling issues I have with the app shows me that I am not the only one, but also provides me with no help. I find myself having to do the most bass-ackwards things to even bring a LOW level of functionality to this and I would throw the whole thing in the trash if I didn’t have to use it to share information with my peers. Honestly, it seems like I fix one thing, and then something else goes wrong, and after fixing the second problem the first problem starts again or there is a new problem. THROW THIS ENTIRE APP IN THE GARBAGE. Again, I can not stress how terrible the support and functionality are for this, to the extent that I’m taking time to write this extremely negative review instead of working on projects that I need to be completing.
Office-wide use! Love it! If only...
by U2Nighthawk on 2019/08/22 22:48
I’ve got 60 people in my office using this app to upload and track vehicle receipts with the camera phone taking out the Lens app step. It’s worked terrifically and made the whole process a LOT easier! Love that!!! but... I wish there was a way to change the default file save name for those images from “scan from...” to a a personalized name like the tag number for the vehicle so it wouldn’t have to be renamed each time after the fact. It would also be really helpful to be able to more easily save an image to some holding account where it would sit when there isn’t a cell tower available to upload to the OneDrive once we’re back in range of a cell tower! Those two improvements would make this app a complete rockstar for business use in my opinion!
Photos
by Jakyyxe on 2019/06/15 06:01
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.
Happy until now
by Mingmong36 on 2020/02/26 18:58
Have had a great experience with OD when I got a windows phone 6 or 7 years ago. I’ve since moved to an iPhone and was not impressed by iCloud so I stuck with trusty OD until the latest update on the iOS app. Total brain fart by whoever launched this without Beta-Testing. I was in a DO NOT DISTURB meeting when my phone began sounding off in my pocket. Strange because I have notifications completely turned off on all apps. What could have happened you ask? Well this morning I allowed my phone to update the 7 updates that showed up on the App Store, not sure why my notifications would reset in an update but they clearly did and now I have an extremely upset client and a boss with a scowl that would sour milk at 50 paces. Bad form MS, bad form!
Great... but drives me nuts
by rcmustain on 2020/08/16 11:00
I love that OneDrive let’s me access all my files and I can essentially pass off or work on documents anywhere. This isn’t especially noteworthy in the age of Dropbox and GoogleDrive, but not having to drag and drop is nice. The trade off is that I always seem to have a little red notification circle or whatever it is on the app. This drives me absolutely crazy. I went so far as to open every document and move all my pictures out... still can’t make this stupid red circle with a “1” on it disappear from the app icon. I have opened every menu option in the app, uninstalled it, reinstalled it... that stupid little circle just comes back right away. If this doesn’t bother you, then the app is no worse than any other cloud app, just slightly better than Dropbox (which I barely used, so take that with a grain of salt) and GoogleDrive because all your stuff saves automatically and unlike GoogleDrive it doesn’t try to default to crap google productivity freeware. It is loads better than iCloud Drive because your files are viewable instantly. With iCloud Drive I would save a new file into the drive and it would often take hours before I could see it on my phone app unless I restarted my phone.
Great app. But one thing with update.
by Lopezjy on 2018/02/19 17:10
Love this app. It is my favorite and I use almost all. The only thing with this new update is that it does not allow me to make minor changes to a file name. When I save my file and name them sometimes auto correct isn’t correct (as I do this through mobile dispositions mainly), and sometimes I don’t realize I may have missed a letter in the name. However, when I go and try to fix the name in my mobile devices I have to rewrite the entire name. I can’t just add or change where I need to. This is extremely annoying, before these updates I was able to make minor changes to tiles as necessary which makes it easier than having to completely type in an entire name again.
Love Love Love MSOD app ! ! !
by Jennie*o1 on 2018/10/14 18:02
What on earth would I possibly due without my MSOD app? I WOULD be lost! I use it all the time! I own my own business so when i am sending files it makes it easy to convert files to pdf, word, etc.. and is easy to open the document in another app (like PDFfiller if I want to fax the document or something like that.) convenient and easy to use. They offer a ton of support if you need it. I have only two (smallish) complaints: 1.) when i am working on a document that i had uploaded to MSOD, & if i exit and then come back to it later to continue editing, the FONT will change from what i previously picked before-to-HELVITICA font. Then, i have to RE-EDIT the formatting for ALL the different sections that i had put any text in my document. Which is really odd & very annoying! 2.) when i am working on my document it will often just close out & any editing i had done will NOT saved, so if i was writing something and it just closed out, then everything that i had just done, would be LOST! It could be something in my settings for issue #1? But idk. Also my app is up to date. I use a iPad 5th Gen.
Could be amazing, but it’s not
by ;0)DAC on 2021/03/24 16:41
After much deliberation I went with One Drive for file storage and sharing. It’s been a mixed bag, but mostly disappointing. I use my iPad Pro for business - taking client notes, sending clients notes/forms, storing client data, etc. It takes multiple attempts to open One Drive before I can access any data. I open One Drive, nothing appears, I wait. Then I close the app, wait, and try again. This time I can usually see some files, but am unable to open them. So, I close the app again, wait - again, then reopen. Sometimes on the third try it works, other times it takes 4 or more attempts. When I use One Drive on my MacBook it usually works fine. I was searching for a data solution that would allow me the option of working from any device, most often my iPad Pro, accessing data seamlessly and efficiently. That has not been my experience.
powerful in anyway in bring your customer back !
by Tomshz on 2019/05/23 04:47
I have hard times in using One Driver or Microsoft new products . Everyone older enough can relate to what i am referring . Bad customers services , with virus in scary and just name a few . But , Microsoft is willing to make changes and bring innovative products into the integration with Mobile devices , even I am so unwilling to use its products , it has powers to make me change my minds. Its Office mobile products like excel and one note app, Excel mobile App has more personalized features that make works enjoyable , more convenience, and colorful .Microsoft is still and continue to be powerful in bring more innovative products for the great good of humanity. I just wish Microsoft will make products in a way toward more simple , secure yet personalized products .
Great For YouTubers Who Edit On A Different Device!
by PotoesForLife! on 2020/03/11 17:14
Okay, let’s start off with the story. I’m a Roblox youtuber, and recently I had downloaded Roblox on my computer and realized how easy it was to control and film. So now I film on my computer. But it’s hard for me to edit on computer. So I needed to transport my videos onto my iPad, which I’m more comfortable editing on. OneDrive is super simple and easy to use! All I have to do (after the video is recorded and saved) is go to files, and then drag the video into OneDrive! Then after some time, it downloads and shows it on my iPad! It’s super simple to download to your camera roll too, all you have to do is press the three dots and then download! Thank you OneDrive!!
Behind the times. By a lot.
by cajunh2o on 2019/06/02 23:33
Absolutely loved one drive at first. Now? That I decided to try and cut costs I realized how much of a mistake it was. Over 2k pictures of my kids in OneDrive. Can’t move them. A big ward why don’t you have this is a select all feature. Every other major app has it and people in forums have been asking for it for over 3 years now. Still nothing. So spent over an hour swerving each picture individually to try to download back to phone. As soon as I hit download. App crashes. Start over. Suddenly getting errors that I can’t download certain files with no explanation and app crashes again. So now my pictures are being held hostage. I can’t cut the cost because of this. Just want my pictures moved. But Microsoft and their customer service has been zero help. If I could give less than one star I would. (No computer so that’s not an option. App should accommodate any features needed for users regardless of platform)
Cancel Not Responding During Delayed Video Upload Attempt
by Healthy BP on 2020/05/02 16:03
I have very good experience with using the app. Two days ago using my iPhone 6 I tried to upload a video that may have been too long but it’s not letting me cancel the request. Have not been able to upload pictures or videos to the one drive for two days now. May 2, 2020 - additional comments I have had to delete and reload the app several times in order to upload photos from my iPhone 6. Now it is getting to the point that doesn’t work. I use the cloud storage for other reasons but copying over the photos is an important one and I am disappointed it’s not working as well since the software update to Microsoft 365 as compared to how this functioned with the label of Office 365.
Great App but doesn’t work on the IPad Pro
by MarmieMcD on 2018/07/14 02:28
I have an Ipad Pro recently issued new from my employer. I have a Microsoft 365 account through my employer and I’ve had a personal account for years. I’ve used the one drive app as well for years. However now with the 365 account I started to use the One Note app for both personal and business use. I use it across my iPhone, my iPad and my PC. The features of the App work great on my phone and my PC and even my older iPad2 but not my new iPad Pro. I cannot insert a file from OneNote as it doesn’t even show up as a location when I browse?? I’ve used the CHAT HELP on line and they switched over to an expert but then got a message that the business hours were over and I had to call back during business hours but it was 4:30 EST? This would be a great App if it worked with the insert file feature so that I could make up notes and photos and whatever??
Helpful Storage
by JennieCake on 2020/07/02 00:40
Great storage. I can access all my files and references from my iPad. I love how the pictures are displayed and I can easily view each one with a quick look. I have a bunch of folders though. I wish there was a a way to tag a folder, hidden in a bunch of folders , as a shortcut. Especially since I use some of them a lot. And I have a bunch of files organized to see a certain category of notes and pictures. Then I have a even more specific category of things in those folders. I also can’t bring myself to delete the ones I don’t normally use, but may need in the future. It’d be more efficient if I could access my regularly used folders faster.
Ok, but lacks responsiveness
by r3dsky on 2019/06/18 08:52
I like the way the team behind Onedrive is responding to feedback and there’s definitely a lot of improvement over the years. I really want to love OneDrive with all my heart. I really do! The main reason why I still prefer a very well know competitor product, is the overall responsivness and usability of the app - even more so on desktop. In direct comparison, everything is much more sluggish on desktop, from app opening to sync etc. and sync conflicts happen more often - on Windows!! On a Mac it’s even worse. I use my cloud storage to sync documents on a variety of systems: iOS, MacOs, Windows. As an end user of cloud storage, it doesn’t matter if the iOS app works great, but there are usability issues on other OSes: a unified experience matters. At least make it the best possible experience on your own OS. Pretty please.
Auto camera upload
by Waffles was taken on 2017/11/13 19:23
You apparently can not auto upload pics from the camera roll to onedrive for business. This is stupid. Part of what I do at work is take pictures of random stuff that I need keep in onedrive for Business for things like evidence, etc. Microsoft seems to want me to put these evidence pics into a personal onedrive account...I’d get fired for doing that. Microsoft apparently wants me to get fired for evidence chain of custody/ethics/etc violations. Microsoft, this is not incentive for people to use your products. Microsoft, why do you care if ppl upload their camera roll to onedrive for business? So, I’m supposed to get my boss to give me the approval to pay for Dropbox Business subs for my whole team because it would allow us to work on a platform that would not violate various company policies because it would be done at the department level. Microsoft, this is crazy easy to fix, just allow people to auto upload the camera roll.
Almost perfect
by RobbieGB on 2019/10/05 21:53
There’s a lots to love about this. Yes, more things sync through Dropbox than OneDrive and Apple makes everything Apple go though iCloud easier. But I love Office 365. It’s perfect for my family of 5. We get all the Office apps on all our devices AND each get 1TB of storage. You can have up to 6 family members too. Dropbox is WAY more expensive and you don’t get the apps. I also like OneNote A LOT which you can store on OneDrive. So I’m a Mac user but I’m also a dedicated OneDrive/365 user and will be for as long as Microsoft continues to make good Office apps and OneDrive for a reasonable price. I use OneDrive on my MacBook Pro, iPhone and iPad. The rear of the family also uses it on their computers and iPhones. OneDrive has replaced Dropbox for me!
Fine for photo and file storage, but uploading video clips is infernal
by Random NPC 143 on 2020/11/03 17:17
I have an iPhone XR with iOS 14. I have OneDrive for the specific purpose of being able to easily transfer files between my iPhone and my Lenovo PC. It works fine for photos, pdfs and word processor files, but when it comes to uploading even 5 minute recordings, it’s infernal. I’ve been waiting two days for a few short clips I made to upload, and since then it’s uploaded 1 of 18. I have not closed the app the entire time, except once to refresh it in an attempt to speed it up. By contrast, it took Google Drive less than 3 hours to upload them all. I’d prefer to use OneDrive over Google Drive, as it is easier to access on my PC, but the fact that uploading small 2-5 min recordings takes so long is absolutely aggravating.

Painful to use every single time
by venkatprabakar on 2021/04/18 00:25
With all due respect, I’m willing to use the app for all my mobile storage needs but the experience has been painful to say the least. Tried submitting few issues, no luck. Listing few of my pain points below 1. Opening links from outlook app results in infinite loop between app and browser. 2. Indicates/shows no content while browsing the app during crucial moments. 3. App doesn’t even inform even when there are network/bandwidth issues, instead it assumes that there are no content to show.

Not an apple product for sure
by Rob Nikon on 2021/04/17 13:41
This software is classic Microsoft. Bugs. Issues. Massive pains in your rear when doing something as simple as changing the name of a notebook for onenote. Like so many other companies, my employer uses Microsoft products. If it wasn’t for that I would use something apple based. Like them or love them... apples does connectivity right. Microsoft can barely get out of its own way. In general the app will do what it is meant to. Not great... but it does the basics.
Missing basic features

Microsoft is doing a great effort to make this mediocre
by only one nickname allowed on 2021/04/17 02:43
The editing tools for editing a pdf used to be good. Then one day MS decided they needed ruin a perfectly good product. And so they changed the tool bar. But it wasn’t bad enough. So they went back to the drawing board and asked themselves “how can we make this worse?” And so they kept changing the editing tools. They took away tools and, merged some options and decided for what small handful of colors we could chose to annotate our documents..... AND THEY ACHIEVED SUCCESS. I now refuse to use it on my iPad. GOOD JOB PEOPLE!! Now good back several versions and return the editing tool bar. Thanks.
Needs to be fixed! ASAP!
by I got this again on 2021/04/17 01:27
2021.04.15 The editing toolbar and options change constantly. And not for the better. A while back there was a tool bar that allowed many options - now the option have significantly decreased. Why? Not very happy with the options. Doesn’t fulfill my needs on the iPad. 2019.04.13 Seriously, one can’t copy a file without going through some tortuous routing. Microsoft - you have so much room for improvement. 2019.01.16 Update I can still not get PDFs to annotate. Renders this app useless to me. Please fix. 2018.12.18 update Although this update is supposed to improve the PDF annotation I am still not getting the toolbar to perform annotations. What gives MS? Still can't improve my rating. 2018.11.18 update So no ability to edit as in previous versions. Multiple comments made but no response. I even went through the app and received a glib "thank you fro brining this to our attention." response. Now how about fixing the problem?!?! 2018.11.10 update Continuing to get worse. I used to be able to edit PDFs in this app. This new down date has destroyed this app. I am not the only person who has commented on this. HORRIBLE!!! Useless!!! Needs to be fixed. July 27 MICROSOFT YOU NEED TO FIX THIS NOW. I have many files in my one drive including folders with PowerPoint, VTS, etc. It is not allowing me to click on the folder and download all the files but rather is making me select each file independently and sequentially (it will only download one file at a time) to down load the files to my hard drive. I spend way too much time in areas with poor streaming capabilities to not have hard copies on my iPad. In addition some files don't have a download option. One must select the "open in another app" to have it down load. A huge waste of time and a huge FAIL ( yes, a four letter word that begins with "F"). MICROSOFT YOU NEED TO FIX THIS. NOW.
Current changes
by Madelexi on 2021/04/16 22:54
I use to love the app. I use to download pics of my baby girl. But now the app is super annoying and crap after the current changes you have made to it. Before these new changes, I could just download the pictures from other apps like LINE that my wife takes of her straight to the photo part of the app. Now I have to download the pictures and videos onto my phone ( that’s if they will download) and then put them onto the OneDrive app manually. Sometimes it takes like an hour for them to show up if they show up at all, which use to do instantly. Yes, I am looking for a different place to put these pics now.. that’s how much I hate these new changes.
Very frustrating.
by L.K.A.T. on 2021/04/16 17:35
I’ve used this for college for a year now. It’s great to have my files synced across devices, but only if the files actually save. I’m on an iPad, and under the impression that the files sync on their own. But I have lost 4 files, 2 last semester and 2 this semester, right before important deadlines. I have not had the same problem with other platforms, like Word or Google Docs. It’s infuriating.
Going from 30GB to 5GB
by faviles on 2021/04/16 04:07
I'm one of those loyal customers that Microsoft punished by lowering the storage capacity from 30GB to 5GB without a valid reason. This is ridiculous in modern times (2017+) so I’ll give you a one star rating until my last breath. Two years later (2019) It appears that Dark MODE is more important for Microsoft than a good amount of free storage for your customers.
No file extensions; no refresh
by LAX20531 on 2021/04/15 21:43
Deleted files aren’t removed from display. Why must I close and open the app just so deleted files are removed from view?! This basic operational stuff is something Box, Dropbox, and G Drive have had for ages. Why can’t it display file extensions? This is a security risk and it’s important since files of different types may use the same name. Why isn’t there a default view option? I never want to see the tiles except on the photos tab. Not related to the app, but Windows changes the dates all the time. Show us the FULL PATH to the file. The last sub file isn’t sufficient when I have an Expenses folder under folders for every year. Boolean search! Search is a disaster. Not only is there no documentation, it is unreliable. The same file path issue exists fails with search since only the last folder is listed. Business users don’t need photo upload. Split the app if you must, but prioritize development on those who generate your revenue. I’m stuck with OneDrive because of its interdependency with O365/Sharepoint. But get back to the basics and stop adding useless features that few people want or need.
Can’t Synch
by SDJ999 on 2021/04/15 16:10
OneDrive frequently can’t synch files and can’t merge changes to shared files. Offers to save a copy instead.
Simply amazing

Terrible integration

Files don’t refresh and load properly within folder views
by YodaChewyStarz on 2021/04/14 15:25
I have updated this app to the latest and I continue to have problems with files not appearing in the folder structures. The app just sits there and spins. I have to close it and re-open it over and over again to even get it to load sub-folder data. Terrible experience in comparison to Google Drive or Apple iCloud which both work seamlessly. This product is absolutely terrible. I even run this on an iPad Pro so the iPad is not the limiting factor here.
Two things.
by DannyGarcia2 on 2021/04/13 22:50
1. Let us turn off the “look back at...” photo preview. I hate to enter the app and see unnecessary pictures on the main page. 2. Bring back a music player similar to Groove. It was one of the best thing that Microsoft have developed.

I can’t delete photos and it cannot download. My one drive has been trying to download 38 photos for three weeks. Not very user-friendly
Lost all my photos. Have to download them AGAIN
by Jcfffff on 2021/04/10 08:34
I purchased this app because of the large space and use of Microsoft documents. But there’s a MAJOR problem with downloading my pictures. I hadn’t backed up my photos for about two months, so I had about a few hundred to update. However, somehow, ALL my photos are now gone!! That’s 6000 photos that need to be downloaded again. And the process to reinstall everything is slower than a turtle walking in syrup. There has to be a way to sync everything without having to keep the app open all the time. So frustrating!! Please fix, because I want to continue using the app without going to a new platform.

Signature Issue
by ThunderTorch on 2021/04/09 10:26
When signing a PDF document the resulting PDF has the signature as an added object that can be moved, copied and deleted. This needs to be fixed as it could lead to potential misuse of the shared resulted document no matter the shared method.
Worst app I have ever seen.
by Explorer 259 on 2021/04/09 09:18
OneDrive takes many hours (from 2 to 16 hours) to upload 1 to 5 photos taken with my iPhone XS. But the worst feature is that it uploads multiple copies of the same photo. Some photos have 70 duplicates. Some have over 100. One photo has 150 copies in the uploaded files. This, of course, consumes a hugely unnecessary amount of storage. My free basic 5 GB of OneDrive storage has 3.71 GB used up already, most of which consists of the unnecessary duplicates. It is possible to delete the files, but that’s a very time consuming chore, since each file must be selected individually. Three separated buttons must be pressed to send it to the recycling bin. The first button is to select the unwanted file, then you must select “recycling bin,” then you must select “yes” to answer the question of whether you are sure you want to delete that file. This process must be repeated for the many hundreds of duplicate files. Their tech support was no help. First they had me go to my iPhone settings and press “clear cache” for the OneDrive app. That did not work. Then they had me delete the app, power off and reset my phone, then reload the app. None of it helped. When the app was reloaded, all of the unwanted copies came right back in the files page. What an onerous and inconvenient app to use!!!

Latest update breaks integration with Files App
by danieltyu on 2021/04/08 01:35
It used to be that I can save to my Onedrive account through the Files App integration with Onedrive. With the latest update this integration is broken. I only have read only access through Files App. I can save through the Onedrive App though. However the user experience of doing that is worse, as I am unable to name my files before saving. I have to go back in through Onedrive to rename my file. It seems the latest update was a huge regression!
Question
by RetroCollector on 2021/04/07 19:28
Why is it that you reduced the free storage when renaming from SkyDrive to OneDrive? I want to know why. You never provided a reason for the reduction.
Read Only
by Eng, J on 2021/04/07 12:12
It would be great if it were not read only. How long is it going to stay like this? I don’t want to pay if it’s staying as read only for a long while.
Remove functional limitation
by Aj Gu on 2021/04/06 03:56
The app is a great utility for consolidating documents on cloud, difficult to live without. Currently it is read-only on iOS since last couple of weeks. Please make it functional earliest.

Good App/OneSimpleProblem
by Prince_The_OG on 2021/04/04 23:38
I gives this a 4 star because if one simple problem. I can’t save my videos. I can save my photos but not my videos. And I can’t edit my videos when I can’t save them. This app is really good for storage. You get extra free storage which can be pretty useful if you don’t have any storage on your pc or no more storage in your photos for phone. And when your saving something it downloads it in a instance. When your transferring data, it only takes a minute or 2. It’s basically icloud but better and you can create albums to organize your photos and videos so you don’t have e to go through them all. This app has saved me multiple times in terms of finding my card number when I needed it since I put everything into a album. You should download this app but please fix the not being able to save videos to your photos

30 days free. ( Scam)
by tonyfromtheBronx on 2021/04/03 18:46
So, March 28, 2021. I was told I was out of space, and if I don’t upgrade I will lose my pictures and documents by April 2, 2021 @ 2am. So with all being said I upgraded to window 360 with 1tb and 30 days free trial. I got billed for $6.95 the minute I upgraded to Microsofft 360 personal Vault. So, I called billing several times and they gave some lame excuse and would not refund my $6.95 totally false advertising just to get your money........Don’t fall for free month.
Stopped Accepting File Uploads
by Mightyherc on 2021/04/03 18:42

My dad is as a computer genius I remember being the first person to have a home computer I didn’t realize how big that was then because I was little. I don’t have many memories of him but I know he was supposed to work for Microsoft so this has always been a happy memory of my dad. Unfortunately he passed away in 2015 in Kings county WA. His computer was stolen before my sister could get out there. I don’t have much information about him. But I remember how amazing he was with computers.
Uploading is super slow
by Tuesdays Green on 2021/04/02 18:33
It’s bad enough that I have to keep this app open for it to sync but in addition uploads take forever! I had this app on Android and I don’t believe it was this bad which makes me think the problem is specific to the app itself.
Good for backing data up to the cloud but lacking at photo management
by Zbyniu on 2021/04/02 15:53
If this app is considered as data backup app then it does what it should to do - five stars. But as photo management app it is very lacking, especially when compared to established apps like Google Photos. Obvious features are still missing and I saw discussions in various forums about adding these features (such as sorting photos or changing display order of photos within albums) in threads that are a couple of years old and this still has not been added. Clueless Microsoft. So as photo management app - one star only.

garbage on ipados
by Songfire on 2021/04/01 18:57
Any app that says it supports other cloud sync tools via the Files app is lying. I've lost work because OneDrive refuses to recognize the changes made to its files from code apps like GoCoEdit, Texpad, and TexEditPlus (which simply freezes upon opening any OneDrive file).
PDF conversion
by W-mouse on 2021/04/01 17:48
The app is fantastic. A great tool for my business. However, it doesn’t have a way to convert pics (jpeg) into pdf files. I have to use other apps (like Genius Scan) to do so. I hope your can update this tool. Good job guys!
Please Fix iOS Files Integration, please.
by jir0 on 2021/04/01 07:25
3 stars because it works, but -2 because of being read-only in the iOS/iPad OS Files system. I hope Microsoft and Apple resolves this soon.
Absolute trash
by cmal92 on 2021/03/31 19:47

Discontinued
by spero194 on 2021/03/31 18:48
I’m fighting to like this app and service and I’m not sure why. Oh, it’s because I just paid for a 15 month subscription for a discontinued service that removes files from the encrypted “personal vault” that was advertised as the most secure cloud storage available. Why is this service removing files from the “personal vault”, and making copies of folders with my device name and leaving them exposed outside this “secure cloud storage”? I’m going back to Google after I demand a refund. File storage shouldn’t be this difficult. A simple Bing search for troubleshooting this will reveal how long this issue has been around.

by simonh000 on 2021/03/31 00:57
Great app I use it everyday. On problem. Why would anyone even want to shake the phone to give Microsoft feedback? I know you can disable it. But in what world would you think this is a good default setting? There is absolutely nothing in my life that I shake to give feedback.
Still broken! READ ONLY.
by any1but me on 2021/03/30 15:38
Obviously Microsoft is not interested is fixing the app so that IOS or iPadOS users can save to OneDrive unless using their other apps (Office or OneNote) to do so. Going on six weeks now with no solution. It certainly encourages one to look elsewhere for an online storage solution. Not sure how much longer I’m willing to put up with the issue.
Read only?
by justmelara on 2021/03/30 00:08
Almost one month now with this read-only nonsense. Why is this app even available on Files? If it’s just to taunt people, mission accomplished. Please fix this.

Transfer files from phone to PC
by ETHREAL1 on 2021/03/29 21:32
This used to be my go to way to transfer files quickly between my phone to my PC, but as of late for no particular reason the integration with the files app is broken and you can no longer save things to OneDrive from the files app.... other services still work so I know it’s something with OneDrive. Thankfully I have a NAS I can use instead. It is dumb that for some reason MS has decided to not allow this anymore.
Invasive uncontrollable & useless
by Chrispatsox on 2021/03/29 17:14
I've never seen a file sharing app literally force its way into all aspects of my life. What Microsoft continuously tries to convince everyone is a feature, is really uncontrollable Invasive Spyware. Am done, I've given one drive years to become a an online Photo video back back up, thats it. I don't want nor need Microsoft Spyware Sharing service, just a back up. Apple and Google are just as guilty as Microsoft. Amazon is better at hiding their nefarious activities, akin to Facebook, Both offer unlimited, photo storage , steal and share my stuff like Microsoft, difference is, They're not taking up a ton of Hard Drive space and forcing its self on every internet connected device, I own like Apple MS and Google, do. Amazon photo video back a lot less intrusion cheaper easier to use alternative

I can’t upload anything from my iPhone. It just hangs. Can’t upload photos from my camera, and can’t upload pdf “scanned documents” from note all. Just says “waiting”. Can upload to google drive though no problem. Bad Microsoft. I have to look into new cloud to transfer probably iCloud I guess.
Can’t upload videos
by Shepvols on 2021/03/26 20:09
Every time there is an upload, OneDrive keeps getting stuck on videos. Then it just sits there and won’t upload for weeks! The last update helped but it’s doing the same thing again. Been paying for extra storage for a couple of years but OneDrive is just not up to par. Maybe it’s because I have an IPhone but other apps have no problem! Part of Windows 10 I hate!!!!
So Little Control
by Emerald_Griffin on 2021/03/26 19:13
Here is a story rant about how frustrating this is. I first downloaded this app to transfer and access files through my phone and computer, as well as generally store files. My icloud storage was months past full. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of selecting camera upload (when you have it off, there is a constant message nagging you to enable it) The upload lasted hours, and I couldn't turn it off until it was complete. My phone became laggy. Then, at the last three huge files, some videos, the camera upload got stuck. Every minute or so, one of those files would finish uploading, then OneDrive would say its storage was full; it would delete that file and try again to upload it. I couldn't turn this off. To get it working, I deleted a bunch of files from my phone and their pairs on onedrive. Finally, the three videos uploaded, and OneDrive was pleased to announce "Your storage is full. Please click to upgrade" or something like that. Soon after, I discovered that Adobe Creative Cloud (which I have) allows 100 GB. I moved all of my photos and videos from my phone, computer, and google storage, to Lightroom. But now, for some reason, I CANNOT DELETE MY PHOTOS FROM ICLOUD. Whether on my phone or computer, files will magically reappear after being deleted. I may have successfully deleted some, but I cannot tell. Yes, I have camera upload turned off. Also, I have to constantly tell it to please not upload the photos on my computer. On my computer, I contantly get the "Your OneDrive is full. Please pay us." message. Also, it's difficult to access non-photo files from the phone app. So, yeah. I hate this service.

Could be amazing, but it’s not
by ;0)DAC on 2021/03/24 16:41
After much deliberation I went with One Drive for file storage and sharing. It’s been a mixed bag, but mostly disappointing. I use my iPad Pro for business - taking client notes, sending clients notes/forms, storing client data, etc. It takes multiple attempts to open One Drive before I can access any data. I open One Drive, nothing appears, I wait. Then I close the app, wait, and try again. This time I can usually see some files, but am unable to open them. So, I close the app again, wait - again, then reopen. Sometimes on the third try it works, other times it takes 4 or more attempts. When I use One Drive on my MacBook it usually works fine. I was searching for a data solution that would allow me the option of working from any device, most often my iPad Pro, accessing data seamlessly and efficiently. That has not been my experience.
Does not work
by please dont get this app on 2021/03/24 14:56
When I open my shared folders, there are missing folders and in each shared folder it says there are no files. It has been this way since installing the app months ago. I am disappointed.
Apps doesn’t talk to Sharepoint

whats the trick to select multiple files
by Kanbalhi on 2021/03/23 12:22
There seems to be a trick in selecting multiple files. but the UI seems so poorly designed the combination dosent work most of the time. Either the screen scrolls or it tries to drag the selected file to another folder. developers should make it easier to use selection multiple files with gesture swipe much easier.
Now worthless
by PileofCrap on 2021/03/23 11:32
Microsoft has intentionally put the app in read only mode. It’s now useless when you try to save files in any iOS app. Don’t bother downloading.

Ever since the update the app is extremely slow and my folders won’t load making it unusable
Can’t access my account
by GG-Ace on 2021/03/21 14:17
Any reason why I can’t logon using my gmail email address? All of a sudden can’t access my account. This app WAS useful now it’s garbage.
Isn’t this app supposed to upload photos in the background
by murat ersan on 2021/03/21 05:03
Even when the app is open it takes hours to upload photos. And I have to be on the upload page.
Excellent Cloud Storage For A Budget
by Digimon_3D on 2021/03/20 23:08
For $6.99 a month. It’s been a perfect storage solution for all my needs. Wish I could store everything in the cloud. They only allow up to 1TB of offsite storage per user. Family share has 5TB of storage, But it’s still 1TB per user no matter what. I just wish I can store more like google drive without paying an arm and a leg for storage. I like ICloud for 2TB for $19.99 a month. It’s is inconvenient for pulling in and out data as needed. OneDrive has a easy interface plus comes with Microsoft Office as a bonus. No complaints when it comes to OneDrive otherwise.

Read only access
by ChrisPepin on 2021/03/20 01:43
This app used to work great but now I can only read files, not write
It’s no google for sure
by meh meh meeeehh on 2021/03/19 23:26
Google drive has been flawless. I would like to transfer all my files to one drive, considering I pay for office and have a 1tb drive on one drive. But it sometimes works, sometimes not. Some of my computers I can not even open one drive. And if you search for help, there is a whole laundry list of the commands to type in, or clear cache or other stuff. It became more trouble than it is worth for sure.
multi billion dollar corporation that can't fix native file integration in a timely manner.
by reaganlu on 2021/03/17 16:23
I share files through Onedrive between my iPad, my windows desktop, and my iPhone. These files are essential to: my dissertation, my position as a TA for research courses, and my only source of income (amateur graphic design that I work on on both my iPad and my desktop). My desktop is currently rendering a video and I'm not about to attempt to overwhelm the CPU as I organize and download ~20 files for 3 different assignments. With my iCloud drive full and the limitations of Dropbox creating an avenue where I can only use Onedrive to share files between computers, I am left unable to be productive (i.e. downloading the needed files to the cloud) for these 40 minutes of rendering a lecture video for my students. Both Apple and Microsoft have created an environment of low cooperation between themselves and the result is not "healthy competition in a free market," but is instead "throttling the accessibility of programs to users who have decided to invest in both companies rather than just one." These companies are putting their profit margins above basic software operations (writing to files). These corporations with a healthy amount of capital end up making us (the consumers) pay for their profit-driven lack of support for software interactions essential to millions. Get your sh*t together, Microsoft. You have the resources to not spend 3+ weeks fixing a problem created by your greed driven placement of unnecessary barriers between competitors.
Removed save function?! Then remove from App Store!
by aap997 on 2021/03/17 06:03
Why have you intentionally turned off the ability to save files from your device to OneDrive? Just remove it from the App Store until you figure it out because it’s totally useless. And thanks for the heads up that you turned off saving files, I’ve been wasting time thinking the problem was on my end. Zero Stars Until Functionality Returns!
One Drive is garbage

Files read only
by Sam49726 on 2021/03/16 23:50
Files have been read only for a month now. I haven’t been able to save business receipts, files, or anything from my phone to my drive for 4 weeks. Long time customer actively looking to switch to a better and more reliable provider.
Will not stay loaded !
by Jknapp78 on 2021/03/16 22:24
Ok so now it’s really getting me upset that this app won’t stay loaded it keeps crashing , I gave it over a year of frustrating trying reloading throwing the app out I give up I hate it
It works....

Beware of Update!
by 15quamina on 2021/03/16 10:35
Beware of updating the app! The promise that “ You’ll still be able to open One Drive files in the iOS files app” is FALSE. You will loose access to all of your One Drive files if you access via iOS files app. Attempting to access your files gives you following error message; “CONTENT UNAVAILABLE This folder content could not be displayed because of an unknown error”. Microsoft have minimize what they have done by saying “We know this is not ideal” What an understatement! This is extremely disruptive if you primarily use the iOS mail app! You are effectively denied access to your One Drive files. I’ve been debating for years weather I just get a Mac. This is the “straw that broke the camel back”. I’m getting a Mac and moving all my files to iCloud.
New update messed up OneDrive and apple files connection.
by MMolch on 2021/03/16 02:54
I can no longer access my OneDrive files on my files app
Expansive functionality minus one
by Hypermatt on 2021/03/15 23:03
I truly appreciate the app features; app pin option, navigation format, and loading speed. One feature I dearly miss is an option to stop one, or range of photos from auto upload. Once auto-upload targets a subject, I have to wait for it to upload no matter how long it takes, or if unwanted, then delete it after it uploads. This doesn't sound smart. The selection tool should work for targeted items as well, and provide option to pause or skip from upload.
One Drive
by Reasonable guy 1000 on 2021/03/15 21:20
They say that they care about your privacy but that is only until they want to have access for their purposes. If they really cared the files would be ‘end to end’ encrypted. Also, the app update that they are working on the app and that the files are ‘temporarily’ set to read only. So, which of my files are being set to read only and when will I be able to have full control again?
Useful but one thing needs improvement
by 3399tiff on 2021/03/15 19:24
I really like using OneDrive to store my files - able to access from phone or laptop very useful. One thing I’ve noticed that needs improvement - when saving a file to OneDrive on my iPhone, I can’t change the file name while saving it. I can pick which folder is goes to, but it saves with whatever the default file name is...so I have to go open the OneDrive app, find the file and rename is correctly. Really should be able to click on the file name and change it before saving, like other apps do.
Good but needs rotate button
by cdavis134 on 2021/03/15 16:14
Great app but need the ability to rotate pages in pdf files. Would give it a higher rating if it had that functionality.
Where are my files?
by Jesswolfe50 on 2021/03/15 08:02
I use this for most of my cloud storage because I have more space. And I’m often accessing files on my iPad. It works great till it stops. Now I can’t write or edit files on my iPad. I can’t save PDFs, which I literally do daily. Because you decided that files should be read only while you get your act together. This is incredibly bad UI (I don’t know how long it took me to figure out this was your issue, not mine). And I’m sure you don’t care. Lovely customer experience.
Files read mode only
by Hjoestrick9 on 2021/03/14 23:18
The issue that I cannot saves files from my iPhone to my OneDrive is so frustrating and waste of time. Can’t you get this fixed?
Please fix
by Rm123477 on 2021/03/14 07:22
Stuck in 28 of 168 photos uploaded. My internet doesn’t have issues Doesn’t keep uploading unless you’re in the app and have your phone turned on...
Amazing Application
by elenagevene on 2020/10/06 02:59
I researched multiple applications to back up all my devices ie phones, lap tops, and desktops. I took the time to compare each detail between all the options available. Given the amount of storage needed and price I chose to go with OneDrive and it was the best decision. I was able to back up information on all my devices and coincidently a few weeks after my Mac book of 12+ years gave me the black screen of death. What would have been a devastating moment of photos and documents that would have been lost turned into a humorous moment knowing nothing was lost aside from the 12+ year old laptop. I was so grateful I had backed up everything to OneDrive because I didn’t loose anything nor did I have to go through the trouble of paying someone to retrieve the data I would have lost. It was all already saved to OneDrive which I can access from anywhere on any device. Do yourself a favor and bite the bullet and get OneDrive! You can thank me later.
The Best For Online Storage and Sync Files
by Kedna78 on 2019/09/18 17:12
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
by JP Mears on 2020/04/23 22:28
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
by NicksOtherName on 2020/08/28 12:15
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.
Manipulation Labelled as Convenience
by MC017 PKG on 2021/02/23 02:03
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.
Great App for Saving Everything!
by Reazorsharp on 2019/07/04 13:04
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.
Wonderful to use & frustrating to understand
by LeetahCammy on 2019/03/16 17:53
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.
Not the best imo
by _kayysea on 2020/01/07 05:22
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
by DeTate on 2020/01/02 09:49
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.
Great for groups working together
by SProwett on 2019/08/07 17:04
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.
Power Users, this app isn’t for you.
by tonygaglio on 2020/04/06 00:28
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.
Overall good but...
by Keith in Tucson on 2021/01/27 11:46
As a user who uses Windows desktop computers and Microsoft office, but also has an iPad and an iPhone, this has been a godsend, however in the update process critical features frequently become broken. Password-protected Microsoft office files can not be opened on OneDrive in iOS, but can on Windows platforms. Unfortunately, when OneDrive is installed, it prohibits launching of a file via the browser based app A workaround to the problem of password-protected documents is using the iOS version of the Microsoft Office app on the iPhone, however iPad users cannot use it unless they have an active subscription to Office 365 because there is a screen size limit for the free version prohibiting use on the iPad. Hoping they fix the broken inability to decrypt/open password-protected file via the iOS OneDrive app. Has been broken for a while now 🙁 UPDATE January 27, 2021: since iOS was updated to version 14.4, this problem is resolved.
Can’t use it to judge — stuck on advertisement!
by jcbroadbent_1961 on 2020/06/09 22:31
I’m trying not to give Microsoft OneDrive a bad review, but I can’t use it to know if it’s worthwhile. Logging on, then scrolling through the pages quickly brings me to an advertisement for Premium OneDrive services, including a 7 day free trial to Microsoft Office 365. There is a little X in the upper right corner to cluck on and close the advertisement, but it doesn’t function! I can’t go backwards and I can’t go forward — unless I want to read the Terms of Service or Sign up for a monthly subscription! Finally, I gave up trying to delete the page which was preventing me from moving forward and actually using the app. I signed up for the Premium Service making a mental note to cancel my subscription before my 7 day trial expired and they started debuting me for $6.99 every month. The next time I opened the app I was confronted with same same advertisement, even though I had already signed up for it. BOTTOM LINE: Attention Microsoft! Either fix your ad so I can click out of it, or delete it from the OneDrive app!!! This doesn’t help me want to use Microsoft products!!!
Accessibility
by Wuest2 on 2020/07/31 17:26
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.
Solid update with the recent version
by JB_Seattle on 2018/01/31 05:44
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.
Needs more capabilities for multitasking (iPadOS 14)
by Ahmed Kh. Goran on 2020/10/14 08:20
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.
Unreliable
by MDBoyz on 2019/03/31 16:51
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.
Better Cloud Choice
by Merchantshipper on 2017/10/31 03:48
I use two cloud services. I use the Apple iCloud for work (200GB), and the Microsoft One Drive for personal (1TB). I tried both in order to compare them to see which is better, and I think MSOD is the better of the two. What I especially like is the ease of uploading folders; however, I am surprised you can’t upload folders using Microsoft Internet Explorer. Strangely enough, you must use chrome. The MSOD is better syncing capabilities. I especially like how the MSOD app can be protected With biometric password access. iCloud does not have that, so my files on the iCloud service are more vulnerable. One advantage of the iCloud service is that you can buy smaller memory like 200 GB for $2.99/m, whereas MS sells 1 TB for $69/y, which is high, but it comes with Office 365. Both services should offer 500GB.
Good but More Potential to Fill Capability Gaps
by Craig's iTunes Account on 2021/01/21 12:26
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!
Good App/OneSimpleProblem
by Prince_The_OG on 2021/04/04 23:38
I gives this a 4 star because if one simple problem. I can’t save my videos. I can save my photos but not my videos. And I can’t edit my videos when I can’t save them. This app is really good for storage. You get extra free storage which can be pretty useful if you don’t have any storage on your pc or no more storage in your photos for phone. And when your saving something it downloads it in a instance. When your transferring data, it only takes a minute or 2. It’s basically icloud but better and you can create albums to organize your photos and videos so you don’t have e to go through them all. This app has saved me multiple times in terms of finding my card number when I needed it since I put everything into a album. You should download this app but please fix the not being able to save videos to your photos
Only Organizes New Uploads
by zhugedai12 on 2018/09/23 16:02
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.
Intuitive Digital Document Storage Drive
by stellar parallax on 2019/06/06 06:53
Very easy to learn, visually offers 3 different screen view of your files - my favorite is the one where you see folder icons (although I wonder if there a way to add color options for each folder, and then maybe digital sticky notes to mark important documents of different sizes and various color palettes) appeals to a different type of person, I love the file folder icon layout very grateful! Taught several realtor benefit of using OneDrive and they caught on quickly, so thank you very much. Also can you please add a system that alerts each agent of important deadlines? And finally could we make it so you can take certain files out of a folder and add the removed to broader group? Y’all have created wonderful software!
Corruption to promote Office
by The Way Climax on 2019/09/27 13:21
A while ago, OneDrive could open any Office documents directly from the app for the general purpose of viewing. During an update, they removed that feature and made you download Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to view it to promote these Office apps. This is seriously corrupt and I want OneDrive to be able to view documents without having to download other apps. I would still be fine with Office if they work nicely and smoothly. Office apps are buggy, glitchy and they have multiple errors that I hate, like automatically editing a Read Only word doc. I think Microsoft knows this and has the ability to fix it perfectly, but they are just toning down the app on iOS to make it feel worse than on Windows. Onedrive and the Office suite used to be pretty good and not buggy at all, but recent efforts have made them near unusable, with new interface and crappy scrolling. If Microsoft does not fix this ASAP, I will stop using Office and OneDrive on my iPhone and tell everyone of your dirty practices.
Useful but Why Does it Need Location Services Continuously
by KevinPurcell on 2019/11/30 12:08
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.
App use to be better overall but there’s new changes that I don’t like
by Jlrodjr on 2021/02/19 05:05
Biggest issue now is that the tags feature is no longer available and any tags that were on the files you manually put and onedrive automatically put are gone so can’t even search through tags that already existed on the files before the change. Also a major change that make this once very good cloud app very convenient when searching other than tags was the ability to search by specific words through your document files and on photos and screen shots themselves which was a great feature but no longer works. I have been a 365 subscriber for several years but with those 2 features i just listed has made me start looking in to a different cloud service and app to store and backup my stuff. Hoping before I find a different cloud I like better that microsoft brings back those features so I won’t need to change to a different providers cloud that does have those features.
Used to be good
by Vanbushi on 2017/12/27 09:16
I have been using Onedrive for a few months now (1TB). Everything used to work really nice. It was nice to have everything from my Xbox One, PC, and phone all synced up. FIXED -*Since I have upgraded my phone from an iPhone 6S to and iPhone X, I have been having crashing issues. I’ll start the app and it will load just fine. After a moment or two the app will freeze up and crash. I went to the MS troubleshooting page. It says to delete the app, restart the phone, and then redownload the app. I did all the steps. Still having the same issues. I’ll give the developer a week or so to come up with a solution, if there isn’t one in a timely manner, I will be canceling my subscription, and move onto another cloud service. If the app is fixed, I will review and edit my rating. Until then it’s a 1 Star. - FIXED Pros: Nice syncing for all of your devices. Pricing is not bad for the amount of storage you get. Cons: You can’t have more than one personal account synced. I’d like to be able to have my wife back up her phone to my storage, so that I wouldn’t need to purchase an entire cloud service for her. App is currently not usable, crashes upon start up.
One Drive Not Ready for Prime Time
by Frustrated Customer 1000000000 on 2020/10/03 16:40
I use OneDrive at work , home for personal files and on my iPhone. Can’t really recommend it to people. My iphone OneDrive is constantly out of date showing me old files from weeks ago that were updated recently. At work, the sync feature constantly gets stuck on some file with no help to fix or resolve it. I also can’t trust OneDrive as it has lost, destroyed or caused important personnel files to disappear forever. No backups or way to restore. I pay for a second service to backup my home files encrypted to another storage location. OneDrive has some good features and is better than iCloud, which isn’t saying much. Not interested in Google Drive as they have their nose in too much of my business as it is. OneDrive could be good if programmers would look at it like a User, instead of trying to impress their bosses with useless or incomplete features and design.
After the biggest update, it doesn’t keep pictures or videos in order
by Toxy24 on 2018/09/20 15:25
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.
very disappointed Especially when working with pictures
by SamS_GTUSA on 2018/08/22 13:07
I have purchased 365 Licenses for me and my family With which Microsoft offers one terabyte a onedrive, and I primarily use one drive to back up our pictures. I don’t usually write reviews but because I got very annoyed with one drive and it’s slow performance and many errors while managing pictures, I got fed up with it. Yes we have lot of pictures and duplicates, so I have been trying to consolidate them, but every time I try to do so, I get frustrated by onedrive’s perforamce. I try to select multiple file and delete. Not only it take a long time to refresh, and no my download upload internet speed is not slow , I have highest offered by bright House fiber optics. Too many times onedrive will freeze, that is she using a desktop, other it shuts down if I am using the app on my IPhone. Bottom line, I am disappointed the most because my expectations of a paid for MICROSOFT product to be close to perfect and this is exactly the opposite.
Double dipping on storage
by __Richi__ on 2018/05/30 17:15
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.
Improvements required
by Mikey T Ward on 2020/07/04 00:19
Love what you have done in the past with this app but needs more work. Needs to have a way to show which folders or files I am sharing and have it show with who and a way to adjust acess levels or remove them from the shared folders or files. Also need the opetion to share files and folders like what I would do on you website but needs to be done in the app as well so we can be more predictive and can do more on each devise. Also can you also list all storage upgrade options so that if I need to buy more storage I can see all options and not just the next step up from what I have. Also make a videos tab so I can have all folder files listed in its own category so it would be easer and faster to acess those files in the app and do this to the website as well. Also need to add support of adding more than 1 personal onedrive account to the app as some of us need to separate personal filEs from ones belonging to a boys scout troop.
If this isn’t hell, then I do not know what is.
by ThrowOutTheApp on 2019/11/09 22:08
I can count on one hand the number of times that this app has worked smoothly and without errors. It is so unfortunate that it somehow weaseled its way into being a mainstay at my academic institution. Googling issues I have with the app shows me that I am not the only one, but also provides me with no help. I find myself having to do the most bass-ackwards things to even bring a LOW level of functionality to this and I would throw the whole thing in the trash if I didn’t have to use it to share information with my peers. Honestly, it seems like I fix one thing, and then something else goes wrong, and after fixing the second problem the first problem starts again or there is a new problem. THROW THIS ENTIRE APP IN THE GARBAGE. Again, I can not stress how terrible the support and functionality are for this, to the extent that I’m taking time to write this extremely negative review instead of working on projects that I need to be completing.
Office-wide use! Love it! If only...
by U2Nighthawk on 2019/08/22 22:48
I’ve got 60 people in my office using this app to upload and track vehicle receipts with the camera phone taking out the Lens app step. It’s worked terrifically and made the whole process a LOT easier! Love that!!! but... I wish there was a way to change the default file save name for those images from “scan from...” to a a personalized name like the tag number for the vehicle so it wouldn’t have to be renamed each time after the fact. It would also be really helpful to be able to more easily save an image to some holding account where it would sit when there isn’t a cell tower available to upload to the OneDrive once we’re back in range of a cell tower! Those two improvements would make this app a complete rockstar for business use in my opinion!
Photos
by Jakyyxe on 2019/06/15 06:01
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.
Happy until now
by Mingmong36 on 2020/02/26 18:58
Have had a great experience with OD when I got a windows phone 6 or 7 years ago. I’ve since moved to an iPhone and was not impressed by iCloud so I stuck with trusty OD until the latest update on the iOS app. Total brain fart by whoever launched this without Beta-Testing. I was in a DO NOT DISTURB meeting when my phone began sounding off in my pocket. Strange because I have notifications completely turned off on all apps. What could have happened you ask? Well this morning I allowed my phone to update the 7 updates that showed up on the App Store, not sure why my notifications would reset in an update but they clearly did and now I have an extremely upset client and a boss with a scowl that would sour milk at 50 paces. Bad form MS, bad form!
Great... but drives me nuts
by rcmustain on 2020/08/16 11:00
I love that OneDrive let’s me access all my files and I can essentially pass off or work on documents anywhere. This isn’t especially noteworthy in the age of Dropbox and GoogleDrive, but not having to drag and drop is nice. The trade off is that I always seem to have a little red notification circle or whatever it is on the app. This drives me absolutely crazy. I went so far as to open every document and move all my pictures out... still can’t make this stupid red circle with a “1” on it disappear from the app icon. I have opened every menu option in the app, uninstalled it, reinstalled it... that stupid little circle just comes back right away. If this doesn’t bother you, then the app is no worse than any other cloud app, just slightly better than Dropbox (which I barely used, so take that with a grain of salt) and GoogleDrive because all your stuff saves automatically and unlike GoogleDrive it doesn’t try to default to crap google productivity freeware. It is loads better than iCloud Drive because your files are viewable instantly. With iCloud Drive I would save a new file into the drive and it would often take hours before I could see it on my phone app unless I restarted my phone.
Great app. But one thing with update.
by Lopezjy on 2018/02/19 17:10
Love this app. It is my favorite and I use almost all. The only thing with this new update is that it does not allow me to make minor changes to a file name. When I save my file and name them sometimes auto correct isn’t correct (as I do this through mobile dispositions mainly), and sometimes I don’t realize I may have missed a letter in the name. However, when I go and try to fix the name in my mobile devices I have to rewrite the entire name. I can’t just add or change where I need to. This is extremely annoying, before these updates I was able to make minor changes to tiles as necessary which makes it easier than having to completely type in an entire name again.
Love Love Love MSOD app ! ! !
by Jennie*o1 on 2018/10/14 18:02
What on earth would I possibly due without my MSOD app? I WOULD be lost! I use it all the time! I own my own business so when i am sending files it makes it easy to convert files to pdf, word, etc.. and is easy to open the document in another app (like PDFfiller if I want to fax the document or something like that.) convenient and easy to use. They offer a ton of support if you need it. I have only two (smallish) complaints: 1.) when i am working on a document that i had uploaded to MSOD, & if i exit and then come back to it later to continue editing, the FONT will change from what i previously picked before-to-HELVITICA font. Then, i have to RE-EDIT the formatting for ALL the different sections that i had put any text in my document. Which is really odd & very annoying! 2.) when i am working on my document it will often just close out & any editing i had done will NOT saved, so if i was writing something and it just closed out, then everything that i had just done, would be LOST! It could be something in my settings for issue #1? But idk. Also my app is up to date. I use a iPad 5th Gen.
Could be amazing, but it’s not
by ;0)DAC on 2021/03/24 16:41
After much deliberation I went with One Drive for file storage and sharing. It’s been a mixed bag, but mostly disappointing. I use my iPad Pro for business - taking client notes, sending clients notes/forms, storing client data, etc. It takes multiple attempts to open One Drive before I can access any data. I open One Drive, nothing appears, I wait. Then I close the app, wait, and try again. This time I can usually see some files, but am unable to open them. So, I close the app again, wait - again, then reopen. Sometimes on the third try it works, other times it takes 4 or more attempts. When I use One Drive on my MacBook it usually works fine. I was searching for a data solution that would allow me the option of working from any device, most often my iPad Pro, accessing data seamlessly and efficiently. That has not been my experience.
powerful in anyway in bring your customer back !
by Tomshz on 2019/05/23 04:47
I have hard times in using One Driver or Microsoft new products . Everyone older enough can relate to what i am referring . Bad customers services , with virus in scary and just name a few . But , Microsoft is willing to make changes and bring innovative products into the integration with Mobile devices , even I am so unwilling to use its products , it has powers to make me change my minds. Its Office mobile products like excel and one note app, Excel mobile App has more personalized features that make works enjoyable , more convenience, and colorful .Microsoft is still and continue to be powerful in bring more innovative products for the great good of humanity. I just wish Microsoft will make products in a way toward more simple , secure yet personalized products .
Great For YouTubers Who Edit On A Different Device!
by PotoesForLife! on 2020/03/11 17:14
Okay, let’s start off with the story. I’m a Roblox youtuber, and recently I had downloaded Roblox on my computer and realized how easy it was to control and film. So now I film on my computer. But it’s hard for me to edit on computer. So I needed to transport my videos onto my iPad, which I’m more comfortable editing on. OneDrive is super simple and easy to use! All I have to do (after the video is recorded and saved) is go to files, and then drag the video into OneDrive! Then after some time, it downloads and shows it on my iPad! It’s super simple to download to your camera roll too, all you have to do is press the three dots and then download! Thank you OneDrive!!
Behind the times. By a lot.
by cajunh2o on 2019/06/02 23:33
Absolutely loved one drive at first. Now? That I decided to try and cut costs I realized how much of a mistake it was. Over 2k pictures of my kids in OneDrive. Can’t move them. A big ward why don’t you have this is a select all feature. Every other major app has it and people in forums have been asking for it for over 3 years now. Still nothing. So spent over an hour swerving each picture individually to try to download back to phone. As soon as I hit download. App crashes. Start over. Suddenly getting errors that I can’t download certain files with no explanation and app crashes again. So now my pictures are being held hostage. I can’t cut the cost because of this. Just want my pictures moved. But Microsoft and their customer service has been zero help. If I could give less than one star I would. (No computer so that’s not an option. App should accommodate any features needed for users regardless of platform)
Cancel Not Responding During Delayed Video Upload Attempt
by Healthy BP on 2020/05/02 16:03
I have very good experience with using the app. Two days ago using my iPhone 6 I tried to upload a video that may have been too long but it’s not letting me cancel the request. Have not been able to upload pictures or videos to the one drive for two days now. May 2, 2020 - additional comments I have had to delete and reload the app several times in order to upload photos from my iPhone 6. Now it is getting to the point that doesn’t work. I use the cloud storage for other reasons but copying over the photos is an important one and I am disappointed it’s not working as well since the software update to Microsoft 365 as compared to how this functioned with the label of Office 365.
Great App but doesn’t work on the IPad Pro
by MarmieMcD on 2018/07/14 02:28
I have an Ipad Pro recently issued new from my employer. I have a Microsoft 365 account through my employer and I’ve had a personal account for years. I’ve used the one drive app as well for years. However now with the 365 account I started to use the One Note app for both personal and business use. I use it across my iPhone, my iPad and my PC. The features of the App work great on my phone and my PC and even my older iPad2 but not my new iPad Pro. I cannot insert a file from OneNote as it doesn’t even show up as a location when I browse?? I’ve used the CHAT HELP on line and they switched over to an expert but then got a message that the business hours were over and I had to call back during business hours but it was 4:30 EST? This would be a great App if it worked with the insert file feature so that I could make up notes and photos and whatever??
Helpful Storage
by JennieCake on 2020/07/02 00:40
Great storage. I can access all my files and references from my iPad. I love how the pictures are displayed and I can easily view each one with a quick look. I have a bunch of folders though. I wish there was a a way to tag a folder, hidden in a bunch of folders , as a shortcut. Especially since I use some of them a lot. And I have a bunch of files organized to see a certain category of notes and pictures. Then I have a even more specific category of things in those folders. I also can’t bring myself to delete the ones I don’t normally use, but may need in the future. It’d be more efficient if I could access my regularly used folders faster.
Ok, but lacks responsiveness
by r3dsky on 2019/06/18 08:52
I like the way the team behind Onedrive is responding to feedback and there’s definitely a lot of improvement over the years. I really want to love OneDrive with all my heart. I really do! The main reason why I still prefer a very well know competitor product, is the overall responsivness and usability of the app - even more so on desktop. In direct comparison, everything is much more sluggish on desktop, from app opening to sync etc. and sync conflicts happen more often - on Windows!! On a Mac it’s even worse. I use my cloud storage to sync documents on a variety of systems: iOS, MacOs, Windows. As an end user of cloud storage, it doesn’t matter if the iOS app works great, but there are usability issues on other OSes: a unified experience matters. At least make it the best possible experience on your own OS. Pretty please.
Auto camera upload
by Waffles was taken on 2017/11/13 19:23
You apparently can not auto upload pics from the camera roll to onedrive for business. This is stupid. Part of what I do at work is take pictures of random stuff that I need keep in onedrive for Business for things like evidence, etc. Microsoft seems to want me to put these evidence pics into a personal onedrive account...I’d get fired for doing that. Microsoft apparently wants me to get fired for evidence chain of custody/ethics/etc violations. Microsoft, this is not incentive for people to use your products. Microsoft, why do you care if ppl upload their camera roll to onedrive for business? So, I’m supposed to get my boss to give me the approval to pay for Dropbox Business subs for my whole team because it would allow us to work on a platform that would not violate various company policies because it would be done at the department level. Microsoft, this is crazy easy to fix, just allow people to auto upload the camera roll.
Almost perfect
by RobbieGB on 2019/10/05 21:53
There’s a lots to love about this. Yes, more things sync through Dropbox than OneDrive and Apple makes everything Apple go though iCloud easier. But I love Office 365. It’s perfect for my family of 5. We get all the Office apps on all our devices AND each get 1TB of storage. You can have up to 6 family members too. Dropbox is WAY more expensive and you don’t get the apps. I also like OneNote A LOT which you can store on OneDrive. So I’m a Mac user but I’m also a dedicated OneDrive/365 user and will be for as long as Microsoft continues to make good Office apps and OneDrive for a reasonable price. I use OneDrive on my MacBook Pro, iPhone and iPad. The rear of the family also uses it on their computers and iPhones. OneDrive has replaced Dropbox for me!
Fine for photo and file storage, but uploading video clips is infernal
by Random NPC 143 on 2020/11/03 17:17
I have an iPhone XR with iOS 14. I have OneDrive for the specific purpose of being able to easily transfer files between my iPhone and my Lenovo PC. It works fine for photos, pdfs and word processor files, but when it comes to uploading even 5 minute recordings, it’s infernal. I’ve been waiting two days for a few short clips I made to upload, and since then it’s uploaded 1 of 18. I have not closed the app the entire time, except once to refresh it in an attempt to speed it up. By contrast, it took Google Drive less than 3 hours to upload them all. I’d prefer to use OneDrive over Google Drive, as it is easier to access on my PC, but the fact that uploading small 2-5 min recordings takes so long is absolutely aggravating.
