Junk. Doesn’t upload pictures in the background
by SpineDoc777 on 2020/05/31 13:11
Even though I have the settings enabled to upload pictures in the background and I’m on a good WiFi network OneDrive still won’t do it. I have to open OneDrive and keep it open on the upload page for it to work. What’s worse is you can’t select which files to upload first so if I need one picture I’m stuck with Microsoft’s extremely slow uploads for all the pictures and videos before it.

Issues with using document feature filters
by MichelleRobynn on 2020/05/30 15:01
I love the product. However the most useful feature is quickly turning pictures into documents and saving them. After getting the right photo and applying a b/w filter - I found the filtered photo does not save - just the non filtered photo. Plus if I try to edit the photo after saving - I’m unable to use the filter afterwards.

Going from 30GB to 5GB
by faviles on 2020/05/29 03:16
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 you than a good amount of free storage for your customers.

I use my OneDrive every day! I access it from my phone, PC and tablet! It is so wonderful to be able to save & find a file from my different devices. In fact the other day didn't have any of my devices with me but needed to access a file. I was able to login to my OneDrive from another computer and get the file needed for the meeting!

And I logout my pc account, but it remains show me some files updated by yesterday! And reinstalled it can't update desktop floder to last changed new one. If above all are would acceptable, but why can't I fully delete Onedrive from the phone, it can auto login after reinstalled! Who is evils?

First off I love this app I use it everyday but the one issue I have with it is when you Automatically upload photos it sorts them first to last that’s fine but I just want to after the photos upload be able to rearrange them like if I uploaded a photo first then later I want it to be the last one other than that I think it’s perfect thanks for your time.

Mobile Users Abandoned
by VovBrat on 2020/05/22 12:11
UPDATE 5/22/2020: Literally zero issues that have been raised and acknowledged on the UserVoice page have been addressed. In eight months, not a single core improvement has been delivered. Not one. Microsoft has abandoned the OD mobile user community. UPDATE 9/24/2019: OD photo management is *still* a dumpster fire, and it appears that the MS product owners have abandoned the user forum. There are literally zero useful updates and no roadmap specificity anywhere on the user engagement site. This is a terrible signal, especially as every other major cloud storage solution surpasses OD. My sense is that MS has decided that it doesn’t have to care about direct customers because the broad adoption of O365 across enterprises is the real gravy train. When popular requests go unimplemented for 2, 3 and 4 years, it suggests they see OD as little more than a bundled afterthought to the Office suite. OLD REVIEW: OneDrive mobile apps make no distinction between image files in your camera roll, and image files anywhere else in your cloud storage. This means your photo view will contain it all. Sync some of your design tool settings, and every texture file - every one - will dump into your OneDrive photo view like so much digital diarrhea. There is no way to disable this behavior on either iOS or Android. Users have asked for this oversight to be brought to feature parity with the web and W10 interface for years and still zero acknowledgement from MS.

Newest update removes features
by Tjlis2004 on 2020/05/21 21:48
So Microsoft ones again drops the ball. I used to be able to upload photos to one drive for uploading to emails. Now the only way it works if I let one drive back up all of my photos. I don’t need their backup service as I already use iCloud for that and that actually syncs my backed up photos. One drive does not allow you to do that. All I want to do is upload a photo to my one drive but no they had to change how it works.
This is a rip-off

Impossible to use to review files
by rus_sel on 2020/05/14 20:16
When trying to use this to review documents they will randomly jump back to the beginning and you lose your spot. Preview a word doc, get to page 73 and while reading it will jump back to page 1. This happens over and over. Worthless.
It would be fine if I had a room

Unreliable backup
by Dinzdale on 2020/05/13 14:27
I’ve used OneDrive for a few years, mainly as an auto backup. I’ve now had two instances separated by about a year where OneDrive randomly threw thousands of files in the recycle bin. I did get a notice saying “are you sure you want to delete all these files?” So I was able to restore them before they were lost. But this is a huge failure of reliability. What if it was a couple files, too few to trigger a message? I did in fact lose one folder of less than a hundred files, but fortunately had them on an old physical drive - had to resurrect an old tower. I thought the first instance was a one-off glitch but now it happened again in May 2020. I think the function of OneDrive letting you work on the same doc across devices is still very useful, but don’t consider this a back up tool for anything you really need.
Video/mov files very slow and get stuck
by no vasoline on 2020/05/13 03:22

by Petere39 on 2020/05/11 07:16
But during uploads I have to stare at the upload progress bar or it will stop the upload. And strangely the same problem with iCloud. In other words I have to watch the progress until it reaches 100%. Anyone else ??

Missing Key Feature- Renaming from Share Sheet
by Keith701a on 2020/05/10 17:41
The app is great, and I’m a huge fan of a file vault system. The app is lacking a key feature that makes productive lacking: renaming from the share sheet. Oftentimes I will download bank or credit card statements from iOS, and then share (save) to one drive. As it stands, you cannot rename the file before it is saved, so websites and PDFs will often have generic names. To rename them, you must open the onedrive app, find the file, and rename it from there. This adds numerous steps to what should be a basic workflow (renaming files at save has existing since the beginning of GUI OS’s). Many have requested this on the onedrive user voice page, but it is nowhere near the 500 votes required for Microsoft to look at it. This should not need 500 votes: this is a basic feature.
Buggy when annotating pdfs!
by Manuel.Merino on 2020/05/09 19:36
Having the ability to annotate pdfs directly from the app is great, the bad thing is that sometimes it fails to save and you lose all your edits. It should, at least give you an option to retry or save with a different name. Please, could you fix this issue? Thanks!
OneDrive
by dreamgirl66 on 2020/05/09 12:26
I am not enjoying the Microsoft OneDrive app as it is no longer functioning properly. I can’t save documents, it takes two to three tries to save documents. I’m spending time turning off my device in order to save, or make corrections. Documents with error messages can’t be deleted. I tried to get the issue resolved with Microsoft, but to no avail. Very disappointed...
Barely useable.
by FrustratedInMo on 2020/05/09 11:45
The IOS version of OneDrive is a subpar app. Simple things like forcing a refresh or setting defaults like sorting files alphabetically instead of by date are not there. Microsoft has had plenty time to make this a content rich production app. They have failed.

Perfect App
by AK-DC on 2020/05/07 19:59
I have been using OneDrive for sometime now, and everything is perfect. Only lately I have been facing a difficulty saving files from email directly on the drive. They end up lining up in a queue but not saving eventually.
Great until it logs your out
by neal_fan on 2020/05/07 03:12
Very useful until the app logs out, often right in the middle of accessing or copying a very important document. My #1 frustration with OneDrive and ALL the 365 apps is that I will be in a hurry, start to edit a document, and find that even though it shows my email address the app doesn’t think I have a valid subscription! A persistent issue, very irritating!
Storage Nightmare
by Selzhanik on 2020/05/06 21:51
Be warned. Anything put into OneDrive is physically copied to your phone storage. Once deleted, the physical copy on the phone remains, moved to the “Recycle Bin.” One is not permitted to “Empty” said recycle bin in a single action. Instead, one must open the recycle bin, and then for each individual file, one at a time, then select a file menu, select Delete, and then respond yes to a slightly delayed Are you sure? pop up window. There is no “Select All” or “Empty Recycle Bin” button. Microsoft’s support website confirms this. I made the mistake of copying hundreds of photos and videos to OneDrive. I deleted them, but in order to actually free the 13 GB of space they took in the local recycle bin, I eventually decided to delete the app, as opposed to hours of tapping.
Just great

Needs better integration with Files app (why do I have to go through 3 layers every time to get to my files). Needs column view. Needs files to be more persistent—why do they seem to disappear after I make changes and then reappear minutes (or hours) later? Makes it very frustrating to get work done.
Personal vault

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.

Microsoft Corporation is Retarded
by M:E/M)O(R\Y on 2020/04/30 22:15
I don’t care what this is, the app. All I care about is hating on Microsoft. Maybe they don’t make things, but when something is made, they infect it with Microsoft and then make it crappy and stupid. I once had Minecraft on my PC. Always have owned it, until I wanted to play it. Then it told me to buy it, AGAIN, for 30 more dollars. Then I redone loaded the new Modern Warfare, it originally costed 100$ or 60$ or something like that. To me, that’s a lot of money, same with 30$. I’m only - what? Thirteen. I got onto the new Modern Warfare after having to reinstall it 3 times because I thought it was glitched, then it said I could only play the stupid game mode - Warzone. So if you want to kill Microsoft with me before it makes you re-buy all of your games, then join me, we must eliminate and terminate Microsoft. For the better.
One Drive

I would not use any other drive!
Great app for productivity
by TJ Mercer on 2019/04/06 20:35
I still remember when I first discovered one drive five years ago. Somethings have changed toward a negative affect but many others have gone toward a positive affect. The negative affect is that one drive has lowered its free space limit from 15 GB to 5 GB. The good news is that if you’re a college student you can get access to office 365 for no charge as part of your tuition package. I love being able to use this app to navigate my files in one drive, especially being able to connect it to my schools one drive account. It’s wonderful to be able to enjoy all the benefits of office right from my smart phone without even having to pay for a subscription at least for right now. Of course once I graduate college that will probably change, but the fact that this app makes it so easy to navigate will make it even easier for me to decide whether or not I will continue to use office 365 on my PC. There’s only one fault I have with the app, and that is when you switch from one office account to another, you have to go into the recycle bin or the recent file list or some other dialogue and then tap on the back button in order for it to go back to your file list. It would be nice if they could allow you to get out of that dialogue without you having to open another dialogue first.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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??
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.
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.
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.
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!
Fanominal App and Service
by Bryan Keeenum on 2019/10/04 03:00
Highly recommend Office 365 and specifically OneDrive. I’d rather saw off my foot with a butter knife than give Google any of my data-that being said, Microsoft has done a great job rebranding their apps and services and are constantly deploying new features and bug fixes. The vault is a nice addition as well. However, the thing that really stood out to me was the outstanding pricing comparison. Office 365 for home use is roughly $100 a year and comes with 1TB of storage. I also have the option of adding additional storage if needed on top of that for a small amount extra each month. It’s a no-brainer. Great photo backup option, and keeps files in sync across all your platforms. Great job Microsoft!
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!!
They don't care
by BrownSugarBritches on 2017/10/23 14:50
I uploaded nearly 2k pictures. All were easily accessible and available for viewing. One random day 1,600 pics became unavailable. Not able to see them in the app, on the website, the desktop or the laptop. Not able to download and view. Every email I sent was returned with "we think you uploaded them incorrectly", followed by "you're using the old version of the app, you need to update it". Not true. Then it was "log off and log on". For what? And twice they've "escalated" the ticket. NOW, they're just ignoring me. They "escalated" my ticket on July 02, 2017, (for the second time) and they haven't said a word to me or responded to my emails since then. I'm angry but they obviously don't care that I trusted them with my pictures and they lost them. After asking them repeatedly THEY FINALLY RESPONDED LAST WEEK. They said “sorry, seems the files are corrupt, kindly upload them again”. WHATs THE POINT OF LOADING ANYTHING INTO THE CLOUD???
Missing Key Feature- Renaming from Share Sheet
by Keith701a on 2020/05/10 17:41
The app is great, and I’m a huge fan of a file vault system. The app is lacking a key feature that makes productive lacking: renaming from the share sheet. Oftentimes I will download bank or credit card statements from iOS, and then share (save) to one drive. As it stands, you cannot rename the file before it is saved, so websites and PDFs will often have generic names. To rename them, you must open the onedrive app, find the file, and rename it from there. This adds numerous steps to what should be a basic workflow (renaming files at save has existing since the beginning of GUI OS’s). Many have requested this on the onedrive user voice page, but it is nowhere near the 500 votes required for Microsoft to look at it. This should not need 500 votes: this is a basic feature.
Love this mail app for work-issue report
by Sickntiredofthis on 2018/02/26 11:15
Have been using this app for accessing work email (exchange server) since last fall. Just like sitting in the office using Outlook on the network. Starting early February, the app began not logging into our mail server successfully even though the correct login info was being provided. We use MDM on our phones for encryption. I could attempt the login numerous times without locking out my network account indicating that Outlook wasn’t actually “knocking” at the n/w door. I had a week or two window of time when the app worked perfectly, then last week, the issue repeated intermittently. Currently it’s working. I’ve also placed a review for MDM. Our IT staff confirms all is and has been good with our exchange server.
Upgrade Request
by Txchilipepper on 2019/12/19 14:32
For the most part, OneDrive is just as good as Dropbox, Box, or Google Drive. The biggest downside to OneDrive is its file sharing capability. If you are the owner/creator of the shared file, there is no issue. The shared file appears in the desktop version of OneDrive. The problem arises when you are a collaborator with permissions to a shared folder. The only way to access that folder is via the online portal. You cannot access those folders through the desktop app. This makes attaching files to an email cumbersome because you have to download the file and save it to your desktop — added steps which decrease efficiency and productivity. This is where all the other cloud-based storage services out perform OneDrive. Please upgrade the desktop app to include ALL shared folders/files.
Good app, but...
by conwayhd on 2018/10/28 14:26
For my intents and purposes, the OneDrive app is great for storage and accessibility and I love the amount of space that’s available to me, which is the key reason I prefer it over Dropbox. With that said, it can certainly use some Dropbox-style improvements to enhance navigation and organization, and there’s a bizarre and on-going frustration that is once again plaguing me after I installed the app’s latest updates: my GIF files all appear upside down. I encountered this problem earlier this year; after logging off and re-installing the app to no avail, the issue was corrected with a subsequent update. To have this problem happen again is irritating to say the least.
Still feels like a pretty buggy app
by Privatestock on 2017/09/27 14:33
Onedrive is useful when it is working but it still feels like a pretty buggy app and is frustrating. Customer service is asking for screenshots I guess because they don’t believe my report. Screenshots sent this morning. Specifically, 1) sometimes Onedrive doesn’t even show as an option for transferring files 2) sometimes it only transfers some of a group of files but there is no notice and you don’t know which got sent 3) after starting a transfer, instead of a progress indication it says “waiting”. “Waiting” never proceeds. It is programmer-speak for “failed, you have to start all over.” If the progress ever says “waiting” save yourself time and just cancel and start over. As it stands, Onedrive is too unreliable for inclusion in any workflow.
Lost all my content on files
by guest721356829101 on 2019/04/30 23:52
I could hardly make OneDrive work with all of my devices. When it finally worked it synced old files with my new ones and therefore all the new content got lost. I’m now missing so much of my work done over several weeks, which has a huge impact on my business. OneDrive does only email tech support. All I got were generic replies that didn’t feel like anyone read my email replies. It also fed the idea that I was an uneducated person, who didn’t already try many things to resolve the issue before contacting tech support. I’m super disappointed in Microsoft and OneDrive and will do my utmost to avoid using any of these products in the future. The issue was never solved. It’s also disappointing and unprofessional to know I never got phone tech support, but only email, which took longer and was useless. An overall bad experience. Don’t get it and risk loosing your files!
Unreliable backup
by Dinzdale on 2020/05/13 14:27
I’ve used OneDrive for a few years, mainly as an auto backup. I’ve now had two instances separated by about a year where OneDrive randomly threw thousands of files in the recycle bin. I did get a notice saying “are you sure you want to delete all these files?” So I was able to restore them before they were lost. But this is a huge failure of reliability. What if it was a couple files, too few to trigger a message? I did in fact lose one folder of less than a hundred files, but fortunately had them on an old physical drive - had to resurrect an old tower. I thought the first instance was a one-off glitch but now it happened again in May 2020. I think the function of OneDrive letting you work on the same doc across devices is still very useful, but don’t consider this a back up tool for anything you really need.
New update ruined this app!!
by Hrcleeeeeeeeees on 2019/01/18 15:41
The old version would have gotten a solid 4.5 stars. They had great inserts for pdf. documents utilizing text box, notes, and smooth writing ability of iPad. Now the new update has ruined the utility of this app on iPad. There is no more text box capability, the drawing and writing ability looks like it came from the 2000’s. To top it off the notes no longer are discrete and accessible when other edits have been made, and they take take up the entire page, which makes it hard to see additional notes and edits. This new update has ruined the utility and cleanliness of the application. They need to change it back to the old version or update it to something more 2018 status.
Started off frustrated, but now I love it.
by livingwithluca on 2019/07/03 18:31
I downloaded the app as a way to store my (nearly 20k) pictures and videos of my son and had a heck of a time getting it to download all of my pics and videos. Usually I just chalk that up to a loss but I wanted this app to work so I started giving them feedback and tell them my issues and they'd respond usually that same day within a few hours and there would be an update the next day it seemed. It took some trial and error but I finally got everything on the app and I couldn't be happier! I do wish they had some kind of "on this day from previous years" feature but maybe in the future!
Files Disappeared
by DabbleinApple on 2019/04/26 06:30
There have been a lot of improvements, so I am liking this app a lot more. Still, there are a couple annoying things encountered when trying to save files from other apps. First, there are usually two choices: “OneDrive” and “Copy to OneDrive”. Why two choices and what the difference is has been left to our imagination and we must learn from trial and error...if you have time and patience for that. The other annoyance is that when you save a file from another app, you’re not given the opportunity to give the file a name. Instead, you have to open the OneDrive app, locate the file, and then rename it. A bit tedious and aggravating when you have a substantial file tree.

by truncatedtomich on 2020/02/03 07:52
I’ve been using OD since the SkyDrive days, and I still don’t know how the hell to use it properly, apparently. I’ve been paying since the cut in storage and I’m wondering why OD has not been saving MS Office app creations by default all along. Last year both my computer and external hard drive were stolen, and although I pay for OD and iCloud (and have been for years) neither has helped me retrieve any work product that was not specifically saved there. Although I treasure my photos, I also treasured 10 years worth of legal templates and 1000’s of briefs and memoranda. Also, I believe it is OD that is truncating my files in my C drive, creating unnecessary folders and taking up valuable space. But who knows? Obviously I’ve learned nothing about using MS office in the past 20 years of using it.

by Team Field on 2018/08/21 04:29
With the fully integrated Microsoft Word and Excel with the OneDrive storage I love it! Easy to share, easy to access all files from any device, anywhere! I subscribed about 9 months ago and I no longer backup my files with external hard drives, or flash drives. Makes it so easy. Love having access to all of my files in my pocket, readily available. Game Changer! Stress reduced. I am amazed how fast everything is. Almost instant updates as others share files and edit documents. Ok, now to state what to improve next. Crop and rotate pictures! Also rotate videos. That should be the very next update. Come on Microsoft, that would earn you 6 out of 5 stars!
Used to love
by jcizsikk on 2018/11/08 14:58
I used the editing feature with the Apple Pencil all the time it was very useful with all the different tools, the line/shape tool for example. Unfortunately the new updates decreased the tools available significantly. Including removing the line/shape tools, the weight of the free hand draw tool for the Apple Pencil and more. Not to mention it made writing with the Apple Pencil very unstable and shaky. Which was never an issue before. The latest update fixed this some what but no completely. I would like the old tool bar style back with all the old tools. I would recommend for storage of documents and other things. But would not current recommend for editing documents or adding signatures to documents until they resolve these issues.
Ultimate Cloud storage
by Shahab Ab on 2018/05/28 19:11
I can see huge improvements since I last wrote my last reviews.. There are many refinements.. Offline feature is also supported but not so much convenient to use. It would be much better if you provide a feature that lets all file and folders be available offline once they've opened. This is so called smart-sync. We don't need another tab for offline files then. Each one can be indicated with a marked icon. Otherwise it's a decent cloud app across all of my devices. I would also like to see a photos app from Microsoft in the app store or a way to access my OneDrive photos inside iPhone Photos app.

Junk. Doesn’t upload pictures in the background
by SpineDoc777 on 2020/05/31 13:11
Even though I have the settings enabled to upload pictures in the background and I’m on a good WiFi network OneDrive still won’t do it. I have to open OneDrive and keep it open on the upload page for it to work. What’s worse is you can’t select which files to upload first so if I need one picture I’m stuck with Microsoft’s extremely slow uploads for all the pictures and videos before it.

Issues with using document feature filters
by MichelleRobynn on 2020/05/30 15:01
I love the product. However the most useful feature is quickly turning pictures into documents and saving them. After getting the right photo and applying a b/w filter - I found the filtered photo does not save - just the non filtered photo. Plus if I try to edit the photo after saving - I’m unable to use the filter afterwards.

Going from 30GB to 5GB
by faviles on 2020/05/29 03:16
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 you than a good amount of free storage for your customers.

Mobile Users Abandoned
by VovBrat on 2020/05/22 12:11
UPDATE 5/22/2020: Literally zero issues that have been raised and acknowledged on the UserVoice page have been addressed. In eight months, not a single core improvement has been delivered. Not one. Microsoft has abandoned the OD mobile user community. UPDATE 9/24/2019: OD photo management is *still* a dumpster fire, and it appears that the MS product owners have abandoned the user forum. There are literally zero useful updates and no roadmap specificity anywhere on the user engagement site. This is a terrible signal, especially as every other major cloud storage solution surpasses OD. My sense is that MS has decided that it doesn’t have to care about direct customers because the broad adoption of O365 across enterprises is the real gravy train. When popular requests go unimplemented for 2, 3 and 4 years, it suggests they see OD as little more than a bundled afterthought to the Office suite. OLD REVIEW: OneDrive mobile apps make no distinction between image files in your camera roll, and image files anywhere else in your cloud storage. This means your photo view will contain it all. Sync some of your design tool settings, and every texture file - every one - will dump into your OneDrive photo view like so much digital diarrhea. There is no way to disable this behavior on either iOS or Android. Users have asked for this oversight to be brought to feature parity with the web and W10 interface for years and still zero acknowledgement from MS.

Newest update removes features
by Tjlis2004 on 2020/05/21 21:48
So Microsoft ones again drops the ball. I used to be able to upload photos to one drive for uploading to emails. Now the only way it works if I let one drive back up all of my photos. I don’t need their backup service as I already use iCloud for that and that actually syncs my backed up photos. One drive does not allow you to do that. All I want to do is upload a photo to my one drive but no they had to change how it works.

Great app that could be better!!

Option to exclude foldes from the photos tab would be great. I'm tired of seeing work related images mixed with my personal photos.
Photo upload just doesn’t work
by swschmidt on 2020/05/18 12:30
The photo upload rarely works. I have to manually open the app to get photos to upload and even then it is spotty. Google Photos has this figured out and works flawlessly in the background. Step it up Microsoft.

The mother of all apps
by SueLuSan on 2020/05/17 14:09
This is the most utilitarian and user ergonomic app ever... indispensable to anyone doing any important thinking or organizational activity... love it.... One of its most amazing powers is its ability to share files across all platforms of computing ... mobile phones to tablets to laptops to desktops and on all OS systems.... wonderful feature.
I want it totally removed
by Trick ya on 2020/05/16 01:41
Microsoft keeps telling me how to remove it, but it never goes away
Upload
by AwesomelyAwesomePawz on 2020/05/15 11:56
A while back One Drive would upload automatically even when you close the app. Now the only time is when you open app. I liked it better when it upload all/any time.
Synchronization

OneDrive is very good at synchronizing. It is really fantastic. 😍
Impossible to use to review files
by rus_sel on 2020/05/14 20:16
When trying to use this to review documents they will randomly jump back to the beginning and you lose your spot. Preview a word doc, get to page 73 and while reading it will jump back to page 1. This happens over and over. Worthless.
It would be fine if I had a room
by lex hehe on 2020/05/14 17:20
Only only have one file and I won’t let me add anything else. Also if I want more room I would have to pay! I need somewhere to put this stuff.
Awesome

Unreliable backup
by Dinzdale on 2020/05/13 14:27
I’ve used OneDrive for a few years, mainly as an auto backup. I’ve now had two instances separated by about a year where OneDrive randomly threw thousands of files in the recycle bin. I did get a notice saying “are you sure you want to delete all these files?” So I was able to restore them before they were lost. But this is a huge failure of reliability. What if it was a couple files, too few to trigger a message? I did in fact lose one folder of less than a hundred files, but fortunately had them on an old physical drive - had to resurrect an old tower. I thought the first instance was a one-off glitch but now it happened again in May 2020. I think the function of OneDrive letting you work on the same doc across devices is still very useful, but don’t consider this a back up tool for anything you really need.
Video/mov files very slow and get stuck
by no vasoline on 2020/05/13 03:22
Video/mov files very slow and get stuck. Never can tell if or when they will ever upload. And nobody from Microsoft cares. Options and directions are vague and confusing.
Fluent Design?

There needs to be an undo for updating an app. It seems like the OneDrive app is flaky. It seems to work for a while and the. There is an update and works no more!
Great App
by nmadanier on 2020/05/11 19:25
The app is great on the iPad Pro. Easy to used and excellent sync with Microsoft word and other Microsoft apps. So far, I’m having no problems with the app. Once I do I will update the review. Until then keep up the go work.
Outstanding
by Petere39 on 2020/05/11 07:16
But during uploads I have to stare at the upload progress bar or it will stop the upload. And strangely the same problem with iCloud. In other words I have to watch the progress until it reaches 100%. Anyone else ??

Missing Key Feature- Renaming from Share Sheet
by Keith701a on 2020/05/10 17:41
The app is great, and I’m a huge fan of a file vault system. The app is lacking a key feature that makes productive lacking: renaming from the share sheet. Oftentimes I will download bank or credit card statements from iOS, and then share (save) to one drive. As it stands, you cannot rename the file before it is saved, so websites and PDFs will often have generic names. To rename them, you must open the onedrive app, find the file, and rename it from there. This adds numerous steps to what should be a basic workflow (renaming files at save has existing since the beginning of GUI OS’s). Many have requested this on the onedrive user voice page, but it is nowhere near the 500 votes required for Microsoft to look at it. This should not need 500 votes: this is a basic feature.
Buggy when annotating pdfs!
by Manuel.Merino on 2020/05/09 19:36
Having the ability to annotate pdfs directly from the app is great, the bad thing is that sometimes it fails to save and you lose all your edits. It should, at least give you an option to retry or save with a different name. Please, could you fix this issue? Thanks!
OneDrive
by dreamgirl66 on 2020/05/09 12:26
I am not enjoying the Microsoft OneDrive app as it is no longer functioning properly. I can’t save documents, it takes two to three tries to save documents. I’m spending time turning off my device in order to save, or make corrections. Documents with error messages can’t be deleted. I tried to get the issue resolved with Microsoft, but to no avail. Very disappointed...
Barely useable.
by FrustratedInMo on 2020/05/09 11:45
The IOS version of OneDrive is a subpar app. Simple things like forcing a refresh or setting defaults like sorting files alphabetically instead of by date are not there. Microsoft has had plenty time to make this a content rich production app. They have failed.

by Tumalo Doug on 2020/05/08 13:14

Bad update
by Radyous on 2020/05/07 21:18
I have been a One drive user for many years and this is the worst update. Do not upload photos to the cloud. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it and it doesn't work. Before the update you worked very well. I have ios 13. Please fix it.
Perfect App
by AK-DC on 2020/05/07 19:59
I have been using OneDrive for sometime now, and everything is perfect. Only lately I have been facing a difficulty saving files from email directly on the drive. They end up lining up in a queue but not saving eventually.
Great until it logs your out
by neal_fan on 2020/05/07 03:12
Very useful until the app logs out, often right in the middle of accessing or copying a very important document. My #1 frustration with OneDrive and ALL the 365 apps is that I will be in a hurry, start to edit a document, and find that even though it shows my email address the app doesn’t think I have a valid subscription! A persistent issue, very irritating!
Storage Nightmare
by Selzhanik on 2020/05/06 21:51
Be warned. Anything put into OneDrive is physically copied to your phone storage. Once deleted, the physical copy on the phone remains, moved to the “Recycle Bin.” One is not permitted to “Empty” said recycle bin in a single action. Instead, one must open the recycle bin, and then for each individual file, one at a time, then select a file menu, select Delete, and then respond yes to a slightly delayed Are you sure? pop up window. There is no “Select All” or “Empty Recycle Bin” button. Microsoft’s support website confirms this. I made the mistake of copying hundreds of photos and videos to OneDrive. I deleted them, but in order to actually free the 13 GB of space they took in the local recycle bin, I eventually decided to delete the app, as opposed to hours of tapping.
Just great

by Somanynivknamestaken on 2020/05/04 16:34
Needs better integration with Files app (why do I have to go through 3 layers every time to get to my files). Needs column view. Needs files to be more persistent—why do they seem to disappear after I make changes and then reappear minutes (or hours) later? Makes it very frustrating to get work done.
Personal vault
by M.Shahnazari on 2020/05/04 07:10
This personal vault thing is still buggy. Many times does not log in and gets stuck on the logo. Txt file editing is still not possible. Is it really a big deal for you to put it there? I practically dont use OneDrive app due to its shortages and prefer to connect it to other managing apps.

I had Google Drive, a Windows computer, an ipad, an Iphone, and using Google for everything I did. It was not working well enough, I am ditching Google and going to Microsoft 365 suite subscription. With free phone support as I navigate through this , I feel free I made a good choice for a mediocre 63 yr old user. I have gaps in my skill set , the phone support has given me a nudge when I needed it .

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.

Microsoft Corporation is Retarded
by M:E/M)O(R\Y on 2020/04/30 22:15
I don’t care what this is, the app. All I care about is hating on Microsoft. Maybe they don’t make things, but when something is made, they infect it with Microsoft and then make it crappy and stupid. I once had Minecraft on my PC. Always have owned it, until I wanted to play it. Then it told me to buy it, AGAIN, for 30 more dollars. Then I redone loaded the new Modern Warfare, it originally costed 100$ or 60$ or something like that. To me, that’s a lot of money, same with 30$. I’m only - what? Thirteen. I got onto the new Modern Warfare after having to reinstall it 3 times because I thought it was glitched, then it said I could only play the stupid game mode - Warzone. So if you want to kill Microsoft with me before it makes you re-buy all of your games, then join me, we must eliminate and terminate Microsoft. For the better.
One Drive

Great app for productivity
by TJ Mercer on 2019/04/06 20:35
I still remember when I first discovered one drive five years ago. Somethings have changed toward a negative affect but many others have gone toward a positive affect. The negative affect is that one drive has lowered its free space limit from 15 GB to 5 GB. The good news is that if you’re a college student you can get access to office 365 for no charge as part of your tuition package. I love being able to use this app to navigate my files in one drive, especially being able to connect it to my schools one drive account. It’s wonderful to be able to enjoy all the benefits of office right from my smart phone without even having to pay for a subscription at least for right now. Of course once I graduate college that will probably change, but the fact that this app makes it so easy to navigate will make it even easier for me to decide whether or not I will continue to use office 365 on my PC. There’s only one fault I have with the app, and that is when you switch from one office account to another, you have to go into the recycle bin or the recent file list or some other dialogue and then tap on the back button in order for it to go back to your file list. It would be nice if they could allow you to get out of that dialogue without you having to open another dialogue first.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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??
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.
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.
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.
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!
Fanominal App and Service
by Bryan Keeenum on 2019/10/04 03:00
Highly recommend Office 365 and specifically OneDrive. I’d rather saw off my foot with a butter knife than give Google any of my data-that being said, Microsoft has done a great job rebranding their apps and services and are constantly deploying new features and bug fixes. The vault is a nice addition as well. However, the thing that really stood out to me was the outstanding pricing comparison. Office 365 for home use is roughly $100 a year and comes with 1TB of storage. I also have the option of adding additional storage if needed on top of that for a small amount extra each month. It’s a no-brainer. Great photo backup option, and keeps files in sync across all your platforms. Great job Microsoft!
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!!
They don't care
by BrownSugarBritches on 2017/10/23 14:50
I uploaded nearly 2k pictures. All were easily accessible and available for viewing. One random day 1,600 pics became unavailable. Not able to see them in the app, on the website, the desktop or the laptop. Not able to download and view. Every email I sent was returned with "we think you uploaded them incorrectly", followed by "you're using the old version of the app, you need to update it". Not true. Then it was "log off and log on". For what? And twice they've "escalated" the ticket. NOW, they're just ignoring me. They "escalated" my ticket on July 02, 2017, (for the second time) and they haven't said a word to me or responded to my emails since then. I'm angry but they obviously don't care that I trusted them with my pictures and they lost them. After asking them repeatedly THEY FINALLY RESPONDED LAST WEEK. They said “sorry, seems the files are corrupt, kindly upload them again”. WHATs THE POINT OF LOADING ANYTHING INTO THE CLOUD???
Missing Key Feature- Renaming from Share Sheet
by Keith701a on 2020/05/10 17:41
The app is great, and I’m a huge fan of a file vault system. The app is lacking a key feature that makes productive lacking: renaming from the share sheet. Oftentimes I will download bank or credit card statements from iOS, and then share (save) to one drive. As it stands, you cannot rename the file before it is saved, so websites and PDFs will often have generic names. To rename them, you must open the onedrive app, find the file, and rename it from there. This adds numerous steps to what should be a basic workflow (renaming files at save has existing since the beginning of GUI OS’s). Many have requested this on the onedrive user voice page, but it is nowhere near the 500 votes required for Microsoft to look at it. This should not need 500 votes: this is a basic feature.
Love this mail app for work-issue report
by Sickntiredofthis on 2018/02/26 11:15
Have been using this app for accessing work email (exchange server) since last fall. Just like sitting in the office using Outlook on the network. Starting early February, the app began not logging into our mail server successfully even though the correct login info was being provided. We use MDM on our phones for encryption. I could attempt the login numerous times without locking out my network account indicating that Outlook wasn’t actually “knocking” at the n/w door. I had a week or two window of time when the app worked perfectly, then last week, the issue repeated intermittently. Currently it’s working. I’ve also placed a review for MDM. Our IT staff confirms all is and has been good with our exchange server.
Upgrade Request
by Txchilipepper on 2019/12/19 14:32
For the most part, OneDrive is just as good as Dropbox, Box, or Google Drive. The biggest downside to OneDrive is its file sharing capability. If you are the owner/creator of the shared file, there is no issue. The shared file appears in the desktop version of OneDrive. The problem arises when you are a collaborator with permissions to a shared folder. The only way to access that folder is via the online portal. You cannot access those folders through the desktop app. This makes attaching files to an email cumbersome because you have to download the file and save it to your desktop — added steps which decrease efficiency and productivity. This is where all the other cloud-based storage services out perform OneDrive. Please upgrade the desktop app to include ALL shared folders/files.
Good app, but...
by conwayhd on 2018/10/28 14:26
For my intents and purposes, the OneDrive app is great for storage and accessibility and I love the amount of space that’s available to me, which is the key reason I prefer it over Dropbox. With that said, it can certainly use some Dropbox-style improvements to enhance navigation and organization, and there’s a bizarre and on-going frustration that is once again plaguing me after I installed the app’s latest updates: my GIF files all appear upside down. I encountered this problem earlier this year; after logging off and re-installing the app to no avail, the issue was corrected with a subsequent update. To have this problem happen again is irritating to say the least.
Still feels like a pretty buggy app
by Privatestock on 2017/09/27 14:33
Onedrive is useful when it is working but it still feels like a pretty buggy app and is frustrating. Customer service is asking for screenshots I guess because they don’t believe my report. Screenshots sent this morning. Specifically, 1) sometimes Onedrive doesn’t even show as an option for transferring files 2) sometimes it only transfers some of a group of files but there is no notice and you don’t know which got sent 3) after starting a transfer, instead of a progress indication it says “waiting”. “Waiting” never proceeds. It is programmer-speak for “failed, you have to start all over.” If the progress ever says “waiting” save yourself time and just cancel and start over. As it stands, Onedrive is too unreliable for inclusion in any workflow.
Lost all my content on files
by guest721356829101 on 2019/04/30 23:52
I could hardly make OneDrive work with all of my devices. When it finally worked it synced old files with my new ones and therefore all the new content got lost. I’m now missing so much of my work done over several weeks, which has a huge impact on my business. OneDrive does only email tech support. All I got were generic replies that didn’t feel like anyone read my email replies. It also fed the idea that I was an uneducated person, who didn’t already try many things to resolve the issue before contacting tech support. I’m super disappointed in Microsoft and OneDrive and will do my utmost to avoid using any of these products in the future. The issue was never solved. It’s also disappointing and unprofessional to know I never got phone tech support, but only email, which took longer and was useless. An overall bad experience. Don’t get it and risk loosing your files!
Unreliable backup
by Dinzdale on 2020/05/13 14:27
I’ve used OneDrive for a few years, mainly as an auto backup. I’ve now had two instances separated by about a year where OneDrive randomly threw thousands of files in the recycle bin. I did get a notice saying “are you sure you want to delete all these files?” So I was able to restore them before they were lost. But this is a huge failure of reliability. What if it was a couple files, too few to trigger a message? I did in fact lose one folder of less than a hundred files, but fortunately had them on an old physical drive - had to resurrect an old tower. I thought the first instance was a one-off glitch but now it happened again in May 2020. I think the function of OneDrive letting you work on the same doc across devices is still very useful, but don’t consider this a back up tool for anything you really need.
New update ruined this app!!
by Hrcleeeeeeeeees on 2019/01/18 15:41
The old version would have gotten a solid 4.5 stars. They had great inserts for pdf. documents utilizing text box, notes, and smooth writing ability of iPad. Now the new update has ruined the utility of this app on iPad. There is no more text box capability, the drawing and writing ability looks like it came from the 2000’s. To top it off the notes no longer are discrete and accessible when other edits have been made, and they take take up the entire page, which makes it hard to see additional notes and edits. This new update has ruined the utility and cleanliness of the application. They need to change it back to the old version or update it to something more 2018 status.
Started off frustrated, but now I love it.
by livingwithluca on 2019/07/03 18:31
I downloaded the app as a way to store my (nearly 20k) pictures and videos of my son and had a heck of a time getting it to download all of my pics and videos. Usually I just chalk that up to a loss but I wanted this app to work so I started giving them feedback and tell them my issues and they'd respond usually that same day within a few hours and there would be an update the next day it seemed. It took some trial and error but I finally got everything on the app and I couldn't be happier! I do wish they had some kind of "on this day from previous years" feature but maybe in the future!
Files Disappeared
by DabbleinApple on 2019/04/26 06:30
There have been a lot of improvements, so I am liking this app a lot more. Still, there are a couple annoying things encountered when trying to save files from other apps. First, there are usually two choices: “OneDrive” and “Copy to OneDrive”. Why two choices and what the difference is has been left to our imagination and we must learn from trial and error...if you have time and patience for that. The other annoyance is that when you save a file from another app, you’re not given the opportunity to give the file a name. Instead, you have to open the OneDrive app, locate the file, and then rename it. A bit tedious and aggravating when you have a substantial file tree.
?
by truncatedtomich on 2020/02/03 07:52
I’ve been using OD since the SkyDrive days, and I still don’t know how the hell to use it properly, apparently. I’ve been paying since the cut in storage and I’m wondering why OD has not been saving MS Office app creations by default all along. Last year both my computer and external hard drive were stolen, and although I pay for OD and iCloud (and have been for years) neither has helped me retrieve any work product that was not specifically saved there. Although I treasure my photos, I also treasured 10 years worth of legal templates and 1000’s of briefs and memoranda. Also, I believe it is OD that is truncating my files in my C drive, creating unnecessary folders and taking up valuable space. But who knows? Obviously I’ve learned nothing about using MS office in the past 20 years of using it.
Sold
by Team Field on 2018/08/21 04:29
With the fully integrated Microsoft Word and Excel with the OneDrive storage I love it! Easy to share, easy to access all files from any device, anywhere! I subscribed about 9 months ago and I no longer backup my files with external hard drives, or flash drives. Makes it so easy. Love having access to all of my files in my pocket, readily available. Game Changer! Stress reduced. I am amazed how fast everything is. Almost instant updates as others share files and edit documents. Ok, now to state what to improve next. Crop and rotate pictures! Also rotate videos. That should be the very next update. Come on Microsoft, that would earn you 6 out of 5 stars!
Used to love
by jcizsikk on 2018/11/08 14:58
I used the editing feature with the Apple Pencil all the time it was very useful with all the different tools, the line/shape tool for example. Unfortunately the new updates decreased the tools available significantly. Including removing the line/shape tools, the weight of the free hand draw tool for the Apple Pencil and more. Not to mention it made writing with the Apple Pencil very unstable and shaky. Which was never an issue before. The latest update fixed this some what but no completely. I would like the old tool bar style back with all the old tools. I would recommend for storage of documents and other things. But would not current recommend for editing documents or adding signatures to documents until they resolve these issues.
Ultimate Cloud storage
by Shahab Ab on 2018/05/28 19:11
I can see huge improvements since I last wrote my last reviews.. There are many refinements.. Offline feature is also supported but not so much convenient to use. It would be much better if you provide a feature that lets all file and folders be available offline once they've opened. This is so called smart-sync. We don't need another tab for offline files then. Each one can be indicated with a marked icon. Otherwise it's a decent cloud app across all of my devices. I would also like to see a photos app from Microsoft in the app store or a way to access my OneDrive photos inside iPhone Photos app.
