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.
•Fixed sync reliability bugs.
•Improved application reliability.

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.

OneDrive for Mac - I’ve been using OneDrive for Mac for what seems like forever. I’ve used it since it was named skydrive. It has always been reliable and keeps me using a logical naming convention for my files and folders. I’ve seen nothing but improvements for the Mac version in that time. The latest improvements i’ve noticed have been the improved utilities in the menu system of the toolbar. It saves me from needing to open up the online version of my OneDrive folder by nearly 3/4th the time I used to have to open it. Thank you Microsoft for adding support to us Mac users that also like Microsoft products.
Good Drive support for Mac - This is a good cloud drive integration with MAC
Improved my life - OneDrive and OneDrive for Business are solid and flexible. My firm and I use them from a variety of platforms including the web, and nothing has ever broken. It’s predictable, well-designed, non-intrusive, and secure to a good or a greater degree—because the security of the consumer and business services are different. And while I know that reasonable minds can differ on this, I prefer the OneDrive UX to Google’s. | Edit: After posting this, I read other reviews here. Can’t understand the negative experiences at all; they differ from mine.
Works few times and needs to be reinstalled every 3 times a week - OneJoke, otherwise, the rest of the time, it works….
I like OneDrive - I wish it were still called SkyDrive…but such is life. I like the app and because of Microsoft’s co-opetition (that’s a word from the eighties when computer companies co-operated with each other while still competing with each other for the benefit of users.) with Apple, I can have my work OneDrive account and my Personal OneDrive account on the same Mac. I can use either account for Microsoft Office as well as using MS Teams. I have several Mac’s at home and my work machine is Windows 10, so I’m covered all the way around. The apps is fast does not use too much memory and allows me a lot of flexibility. Worth the Five Star rating.
