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 sped up the sharing experience so that you can now assign work to your friends and colleagues even faster.
• New context menu icons have been added

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.

Use it for my small business! - I like a lot of the aspects of OneDrive, the 1 terabyte of storage is very nice when you sign up for microsfot office. Also the syncing of files is pretty fast, on a good internet connection. I used this on both a powerful PC and a Macbook Pro, as well as my iPhone and an andriod phone. I have used it for about 3 years now. The one complaint I have is that when you share a a file with somebody, they can not dowload it to their computer, the link will send them to OneDrive online. They would not have the ability to sync. We do not have an office, so we work remotely anywhere. Starbucks, DD, libraries, etc for a 1 million dollar gross sales small business of 3 employees. We need to be able to access files at any time, including during spotty internet connections.
OneDrive - I’m a Apple only guy for hardware and didn’t expect to be impressed with anything Microsoft until I started using OneDrive for my cloud storage. I used several other cloud storage apps and OneDrive is the best one I’ve used so far. It works great with my iMac, Macbook Air and iPhone. Fast and easy to use when saving email attachments and photos and as a complete backup for my office iMac.
Contextual Menus Sharing Link? - Still no menu to grab a link to share an item directly from the Desktop. I do not want to go to the website to share a document via a link.
OneDrive Sharing Shortcomings - The 2 near-fatal flaws of OneDrive for Mac are the inability to share files with others from the app & the inability to see files shared by others from the app. I can do both online, of course, but that substantial obstacle means I use it only when necessary. I understand my co-workers with Windows machines do not have these limitations.
Reliable, mostly good. - I’ve been using the Mac OneDrive client since it was first launched, and it’s been reliably decent all around. Being able to sync with multiple accounts is really helpful, as I have both work and personal accounts with dramatically different storage caps. I’m not a fan of the non-mac-native dropdown menu. - It visually stands out in all the wrong ways. - On my Mac, it takes more than a second to open the menu, if I haven’t recently clicked on it. That’s pretty ridiculous. - For some reason if you click again to close it, it does not return the focus to the previous window. Super irritating to have to click back into textboxes after grabbing a share link. It added a nice feature or two, but I don’t think the kludgy feeling is worth it. Dropbox did the same thing, but at least they let you option-click to use the native menu.
