OneDrive is the one place for everything in your life. It gives you free online storage for all your personal files, so you can access them from your Mac and any other devices you use – iPhone, iPad, PC, Windows Phone or Android. With OneDrive for Business, you also get storage for your work files so you can share and collaborate on them with other people at your work or school/university. The OneDrive app for Mac makes it easy to work with your OneDrive files on your Mac:
•Access your OneDrive files directly from the Finder, including attachments that you’ve saved to OneDrive from Outlook.com, and documents and spreadsheets that you’ve created from Office Online.
•Work with your OneDrive files even when you’re offline. Your changes will sync automatically the next time you’re online.
•Choose the folders in your OneDrive that you want to sync on your Mac.
•Add several files or folders to OneDrive at a time by dragging them to the OneDrive folder. By putting your files in OneDrive, you can access them from anywhere and have a backup in case something happens to your computer.
•Easily open, edit and create docs and other files in OneDrive from applications such as Word or Excel.
• We've added context menus for OneDrive! Just right-click on your file or folder to see the new options. To turn on the context menu, enable OneDrive Finder Extensions and restart macOS or Finder after the update.
• Speaking of another feature you've all been asking for, you can now share a file or folder from the context menu. It works for both personal and work or education accounts!
• The activity center has been updated to provide more detailed information, such as where the file was downloaded from or uploaded to.
• We've also increased the maximum file path limit for your work or education OneDrive.
• We've made more improvements to sync reliability – hooray!

Good Job Microsoft - Now there is a single drive to create MS Office Documents on my Windows 8.1 Machine and have desktop access to those files on my MacBook Pro. Seamless workflow. Kudos goes to Microsoft and Apple for creating a truly cross compatible workflow for storage. I’ve never used Dropbpx and I have no plans to start using that application. Between Google Drive, Box, iCloud, Lacie Waulu, and now One Drive i have no worries about having my files off of my computer in the event my computer fails for whatever reason and I need to recover important documents.
Causes Mac Keyboard to Lock Up - I have been using OneDrive since it was called SkyDrive to sync personal files. With this version, I am also syncing files with OneDrive for Business, and would like to rely on it for work files. However, this version is very unreliable, because it locks up from time to time unpredictably. The clear sign that OneDrive has hung is that, if you move the cursor over the OneDrive icon on the right side of the menu bar, the cursor turns to the rainbow beachball. When OneDrive hangs, the keyboard no longer responds in any application (or the Finder). I can still use the mouse/trackpad and click, but I can’t type anything. It took me a long time to figure out that it was OneDrive that does this, but it is confirmed on a Microsoft support form as an open issue in Office 365. Their suggested work around is to: (1) kill OneDrive in Activity Monitor and (2) remove OneDrive from System Preferences -> Users & Groups -> Login Items. In other words, OneDrive is currently completely useless for automatic file sync. Worse, it will make your system unusable. And Microsoft suggests that you disable it. I hope they fix this soon because if/when it works, OneDrive for Business is very useful. Unitl then? Do not install.
