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, 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.



  • Too Flawed to be Useful

    By RayNTosca
    Fatal Flaws: • Does not follow aliases — Uploads them as a file • Does not follow symbolic links — Totally ignores them • Only Backs-up files/folder physically in the “One Drive” root folder — complicated by first two flaws • Cannot handle macOS file names — Trying to upload your typical macOS folders will produce hundreds to thousnads of errors The only thing that saves the program from literally being 100% useless is that it’s needed to share OneNote files — OneNote is the by far the best Microsoft App out there.
  • Very Good

    By JanquiD
    I really want One Drive in all platforms, including Linux Distributions… because I have my microsoft account since in 2001… and can’t use this software very well on Linux.
  • Works… sometimes….

    By Necrackolytez
    I have to quit an restart it atleast once a day as it does not seem to survive laptop going to sleep, it will just say updating forever. 10 updates later and its the same problem, what are they even fixing?
  • Does not work with personal accounts

    By Artakamoose
    I’ve used this app with an enterprise account, and it works well. However, it doesn’t work at all with personal accounts. It’s an absolutely ludicrous restriction, especially since Dropbox and iCloud Drive both offer apps that don’t have any such restrictions.
  • 100% Processor Utilization while Idle?

    By Seeeeeeeeeeeeeeeean!
    The app is fine for the most part but lately, (since the last update?) it will creep up to 100% processor utilization and cause my macbook to get molten and the fans to just be at full force. If I quit the sync app then it’s back to normal pretty quickly.
  • Don’t bother until they fix it - uses too much CPU

    By sandy3boyz
    This application was using over 100% of my CPU when I looked in Activity Monitor. I was wondering why my Mac was getting so hot and the battery kept dying so quickly! It wasn’t even syncing and it was still using this percentage, and I’m only using 2GB of storage on it. It’s worthless until it’s fixed. I would rather use Google Drive or Box because it isn’t worth it’s slowing down my computer, killing the battery, and heating it up to beyond hot. I tested it, too. The only thing I had running was OneDrive and it was still doing it. Just don’t bother.
  • Works like a charm

    By GlennHarris
    There are pleanty of tools out that to store files on the cloud and they all work well. What I like about OneDrive (and I’m a Mac user and despise PC’s and Windows) is that it just works. No messing around with settings or dragging files here and there. I have access to all my documents on my Mac, iPad and iPhone. Couldn’t ask for more.
  • Depletes battery, but otherwise OK

    By swancakes
    I do love the value of an Office365 license, especially the included 1TB OneDrive storage. However, of all 3 cloud storage accounts that I use (i.e., OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox), it is always the OneDrive client using the most memory at all times. When it is running in the background, if I put my Macbook to sleep it depeletes the battery within hours. There must be some memory leak or managment issue. Other than its heavy drag on system resources, I like it and use it. Although, I do prefer Google Drive’s Drive Stream since it keeps files in the cloud until you need them, which frees up gigabytes of valuable laptop hard drive space.
  • no more flash drives

    in the era of cloud data , one drive takes top position in my data storage and sharing , due it accessibility & no down time
  • Every update breaks this product

    By Matters.Little
    Every time this software updates, it will forget your OneDrive directory on restart. You can tell it which folder to use, but it will reject it, every single time. Then, you’ll say “Okay, I’ll just make a new folder for OneDrive. Then, it “syncs” your computer’s OneDrive directory with your online storage, and since your local directory is empty, “syncing” means erasing everything on your online drive. The good thing is that you can undo this through the web application, but it shouldn’t even be possible to get this bad. Before erasing everything on your remote directory, it should probably say something like “This action will delete 20,000 items, and when you turn on another computer that’s connected to your OneDrive account, it will also delete the local copies on that machine, creating an almost perfect destructive tsunami that nobody would ever deliberately initiate."
