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.



  • Only if I have to

    By neybar76
    OneDrive is missing so many features compared to pretty much anyone else. I really dislike how messy it is with my file system. I can choose the root of my box drive, but I get no say on the actual name of the folder. Microsoft has decided on a folder naming scheme that probably prevents overlap, but makes the folder names long, and hard to find. I end up with junk like "Some Company/Some Jerky's - Super Awesome Folder Name". If you end up sharing multiple folders with the same person then they all start to look the same. It would be nice if I can choose my own folder name. At least let me put the important part of the folder name closer to the front, so I don't have to stretch out my Finder view so much.
  • Great primary functionality - needs more stability

    By Benyapollywog
    Coming from GoogleDrive, the primary features for onedrive made the transition relatively seemless. However, what is increasingly frustrating is that there always seems to be issues with the configuration on macs, especially when you have to upgrade your macOS. for example, the finder extension stopped working when I upgraded to Mojave. I always have to cross my fingers when upgrading or reinstalling because the experience has been so frustrating. Otherwise, the app and the way it integrates office in the work environment has been excellent.
  • Everyday Use is Great!

    By rachel_wo1f
    The best part of this app is having my files accessible with the desktop icon, as well as on any computer. It’s better than Google Drive in my opinion because of the ease of access of files on my home computer, and the online ‘drive’ works in the same way. I would not be able to function without OneDrive, seriously.
  • Seems to have Microsoft’s attention

    By berricks
    Update: We've continued to use the Mac version and appreciate the releases almost every Monday. This tool is much more reliable and business ready. I started testing OneDrive for the Mac last year when looking at Office365 for my company. It was very bad, would not sync reliably, would crash and not restart, would not open at startup, etc. It was bad! But I’ve seen quite a few releases from Microsoft and it really seems to have their attention on the development side. Because of the improvements I think this is a safe choice for file syncing at this point. I still don’t have finder integration and I’ve looked in the Office365 help docs a few times but can’t seem to find the setup. I now see from the screenshots how to set it up. It really needs to have sharing options directly from the finder. It’s still strange to me that they ship this through the app store and not as part of the Office365 download, that makes it somewhat difficult to get new company users set up. At least they should have it available both ways. I’d much rather have my users download the package of apps, enter their credentials and be ready to go. Overall, OneDrive is usable with this release and I’d recommend.
  • the Pesonal One Drive account works very well

    By MKB58
    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.
  • It doesn’t open

    By BellaMeigui
    Just installed and it is not opening at all. Please help I am on a Mac.
  • Easy to use and reliable

    By Pshipper
    Keeps getting better and better. It's now a nearly seamless experience for me from iPhone to MacBook to PC. On the phone, photo backup is huge for me, and the searchable albums function is much improved. On PC, I can search files faster in OneDrive than I can on the actual network drives at work. Results are better, too. I have a personal account, a work account, and a third accout with a national organization. Occasionally I hit a confusion point with the differening privileges/products made available in each, but the multiple account experience has been in general smooth and getting better over time. Very easy to "move between worlds." Highly recommend.
  • Great backup

    By SCH59
    I love OneDrive. Its my main cloud backup. After the intitial set up the synching is automatic.
  • Works okay, but often gets stuck "Syncing N files"

    By Bikrrr
    Usually a restart will fix it, if not uninstall, reinstall. Really annoying.
  • Horrible

    By Thomasmhall1
    Doesn’t work at all on Mac running Sierra. Get errors ranging from “Cannot install to this folder” which is anywhere on the computer” to “Already syncing this folder” upon first set up. Buggy and bad, avoid like the plague - get Box instead
