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.

WAS Great, NOW NOT SO MUCH - I can't believe the headaches we have had with this recent update(s) over the past few months. Synching STOPS completely because of problems reported in the .temporary folder, and other hidden folders. Files On Demand feature won't turn on, etc. Have uninstalled, gotten rid of the system files for OneDrive, Reset via the instructions going into the Content Package, etc. I have finally been worn down to the point that I am willing to pay for Dropbox suscription again. My wife is the only one wanting to use Word so why pay for a whole Office 365 subscription? ~~~~~~~~~ Okay. Finally got OneDrive to sync after months of not using. Wanted to like OneDrive. Files sync'd fine, BUT....there were no overlay icons (checkmark, sync, sync problems etc) to tell you the sync status of the files. Spent hours searching for answers. Apparently, this is a very common problem a/w the icon library. After an hour in Chat Support, they couldn't fix the issue as well. Gave up AGAIN on OneDrive. I don't understand why Microsoft can't get this right.
Need Personal Vault access - Need personal Vault access on Mac.
School account issues - While syncing the data with the school account the OneDrive is frozen always.
Awful - The experience of using OneDrive is incredibly frustrating. Things are syncing fine, and then suddenly not syncing at all, which has caused huge issues when collaborating remotely with my team. Having to go from Google Docs to this has been a terrible transition.
Not a good replacment for DropBox to litle funtionality - The sync folder can only be on your hard drive, it will not let you sync to a external drive, not even a USBC SSD. The sync, upload and download of files is very slow, hours slower than a dropbox folder. When I changed my O365 password the client freaked out, made me unlink my computer and I had to create all of the syncs. Unstable, slow, lacks basic functionality. cannot be trusted for syncing work file that you need to be productive. Client constantly beach balls and hangs.
