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.

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.

fatal flaw: can’t deal with long titles - I was hoping to switch from Dropbox to Onedrive, since I’m already paying for Office 365. But the transfer was stymied because Onedrive has much more rigid limits on file names (or maybe paths?) than Dropbox. I was notified that file after file had a name that was too long—after about two dozen notifications, I gave up. The options seem to be to rename the files manually (but how to keep track of which ones were too long? write them down? ) or to not sync those files, or even to lose them while copying from Dropbox to Onedrive. Maybe if you were starting syncing files from scratch this would be fine?
Non useful and deleted my information - We use this for Office365 for our company. I used this to sync a folder on my compnay OneDrive but when I created an alias to a PowerPoint I was creating and going to use about the benefits of OneDrive and it totally screwed up my PowerPoint. It deleted the pictures and content within the PowerPoint and now I'm back to square 1 with the PowerPoint and will be talking with our company about using something else because with a company of our size we can NOT afford to have files modified or deleted.
Good and Bad - My favorite part about OneDrive is I am able to use it to sync shell scripts across Macs. Some other providers like Google Drive have had issues with maintaining the executable permissions on them across machines. My least favorite part is that I used to have 15GB but that was cut down to 5GB in a bizarre backwards shift. I didn't opt into the offer to keep what I had soon enough, so now I am on the 100GB offer but it is only good for one year.
Changed my life! - This app gives me access to all my files on all of my devices! I looked for a long time for a tool that would let me do schoolwork on my phone and tablet without having to email files back and forth to myself to keep all of my devices up to date. This app is easy to set up and easy to use and I have no complaints!
Works fairly well - The app works fairly well. The only thing that I don’t like is that it needs to be prompted to update. When I add files on my work computer and come home to my Mac, I need to open the on drive app and prompt it to update. It would be nice if it happened automatically. Other than that it works well. I’ve been using it regularly for over a year now.
