OneDrivefor Mac



Sync those Words

There are many different file synchronization tools, but Microsoft OneDrive is meant to be used with Office 365; it comes as part of the bundle. It provides a well-integrated platform for sharing and working together, especially as a business, while also effectively saving all of your documents.

Sync across devices

OneDrive is a cloud storage platform from Microsoft. While it boasts plenty of storage space and ease of use, it has a few issues that prevent it from supplanting Google Drive.

When you’re using the Office 365 suite, OneDrive is a must-have. It offers a fair amount of storage space. However, it falls in comparison to its main competitor, Google Drive.

It’s perfect for collaboration across all Microsoft products, namely Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. You can also decide which files sync to which devices; this is very useful for devices with limited storage space.

There are connection issues when using OneDrive. You’ll find yourself having to re-login multiple times on your computer or on the cloud to make sure everything is working and that your files are properly syncing.

Where can you run this program?

You can run OneDrive on macOS 10.12 with a 64-bit processor.

Is there a better alternative?

Yes. Google Drive is compatible with more file types. It also has a cheaper subscription option compared to OneDrive, in addition to its free option. SyncDrive is better than both with its syncing; however, it is significantly more expensive.

Our take

While OneDrive is a good option when you primarily use Microsoft, it fails when it comes to total compatibility. It’s decent at what it does and has a lot of available options, but it has a complicated setup process.

Should you download it?

No. There are other, better applications. This likely won’t be useful for you unless your company or school uses Microsoft Office.
