Software Reviews and Criticism


  • By Dah doob

    Blown away.

    [Update 30MAY2018] Usually works amazinly. But when it decides to stop syncing, there is nothing I can do to get it to sync agian. I’ve tried killing the process and restarting it and nothing. All I can do is reboot the PC. =/ Works flawlessly on iOS, Windows and the browser though [First Review] I work from both a Windows and a windows desktop. I also work from a computer given to me by work that I can’t download apps on. I find it amazing that I can sync all my files accross a web browser, my phone and computers. That’s just mind blowing. I keep all my files in the cloud and they’re with me everywhere I go. I also get 1TB of storage. WHAT with all of Microsoft Office Suite for 10 bucks a month. That’s chump change for the value you’re getting. I work a lot with excel and word and having those applications on all my stations is a blessing. Thank you OneDrive team for listening to your audience and continuing to change your image for the better.

    "Works" but compared to other solutions it's a very poor experience.

    The user experience with this application is so 'blah' it's not even funny. The first few iterations of OneDrive were barely passable as a sync tool for SharePoint. With all the rave reviews on this application I'm really curious what horrible software people live with that makes this look good. The user experience of other applications like DropBox is very good and well integrated with the OS. As an example a simple right-click and you have a link to email off to someone as a one-time access or direct link if it is shared. OneDrive has no concept of a file repository with a local synced copy. It is simply a basic file sync tool for the fledgeling SharePoint experience. I'm sure if you don't use SharePoint in a corporate environment and use OneDrive to sync your local Micro$soft application documents it's a beautiful thing. However, in the corporate setting where we are basically forced to use SharePoint this tool does nothing more than get a local copy on your computer without any other interaction which is pitiful. Add to the list is the "processing" message that doesn't go away after you open the app along with no "pause" button. It's really the simple things that matter with user experience and I know M$ doesn't make any money licensing OneDrive so it will undoutably remain pitifully featuerd behind its peers.

    Updates are locking me out

    I am disappointed and frustrated by the last two updates. OneDrive had been working well for me for 6 months in syncing work files between my work computer and my home computer. Recently, after updating the OneDrive app at home, the update prompted me to sign into my organization again, but it couldn’t “locate” a place to sync my files. Basically, it couldn’t detect that I already had OneDrive installed and was trying to create a OneDrive folder again. It wouldn’t sync my existing folders, and instead gave me a repeated error message (“Your OneDrive folder can’t be created in the location you selected: Try a different location. Make sure that the location isn't on a removable drive, or on a disk that has a case-sensitive format”). The first time that this happened, I managed to work around it by force-quitting OneDrive, uninstalling it, wiping the existing local OneDrive folder on my home computer, and then reinstalling OneDrive as though setting it up on a new computer. That may have been a fluke because a few months later, I encountered the same problem with a new update. I’ve been going through the same process—and it’s not working. In short, I’m unable to use OneDrive on my home Windows. It’s currently useless to me, and my only recourse now is to migrate content to another cloud service. I reported this to Support the first time. I’m going to report it again. One star.

    Mediocre and unnecessarily complex

    The second star is for the massive amount of storage I get from my organization's 365 subscription. If you're a MS shop, you get a lot of storage, it seems. You are able to sync, to keep some folders unsynced, and that's good. I frequently get messages telling me that the app can't find my local folder, usually after updates. Initially, if you have folders already set up at the server (say if you're working with an org), it will not ask you for preferences first and simply download everything - after which it froze on me. Then, when I resumed with some folders set to remain on the server, it gave me errors about the unsynced folders having the same name as the ones on the server. Then, when I renamed the folders, it went ahead and synced these new folders, so I had to trash them twice. Frequent sync errors are the norm here (beware any file that has symbols) and frankly it's really a lot more annoying than iCloud and Dropbox. But it's what my work uses, and I am happy to have so much space to send work files. I just spend *so much* time managing and correcting the sync process compared to other programs.

    the Pesonal One Drive account works very well

    I have experience with both the Personal One Drive as part of my 365 subscription and on a SharePoint work account. My personal account works almost flawlessly. I almost never have trouble with it. Every once in awhile (actually quite rarely) I have to log back in, but that has always been problem free as well. If I were rating that alone, I would give it 5 stars. I also have a SharePoint account through the university I work at. That account is a constant head ache. I keep getting booted off, and logging back in frequently fails. It doesn’t work with my documents manager on my iPad well at all. I finally gave up and moved everything to my Personal 365 One Drive, and abandoned my SharePoint account. Everything works well for me now on my Personal 365 One Drive. With the TB of storage, even with all of my work documents, I don’t have any issues. So I don’t know how much of the SharePoint problem was with my university vs MS. Given how well my personal account works, I think it is probably something to do with how the university manages their end, but that is purely speculation. Bottom line, One Drive as an integrated part of my 365 account works very well, and I will continue it, and would recommend it.
