OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive) is the easiest way to access your OneDrive from your Mac. When you install OneDrive, a OneDrive folder is created on your computer. Everything you put in this folder is automatically kept in sync between your computers and OneDrive.com, so you can get to your latest files from virtually anywhere. Whenever you add, change, or delete files in one location, all the other locations will be updated.

Features:
  • Access your OneDrive right from the Finder - photos, documents, and all your other important files.

OneDrive would be a real challenger to Dropbox... if it were able to correctly sync iWork 2013 (package) files. Actually, I cannot understand why Apple revert, once again, to package file for iWork.

The OneDrive app doesn’t support a case-sensative formated drive. And, looking at Microsoft support pages, the team doesn’t intend to add this support. Well, I’m not inclined to reformat my case-sensative drive.

"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.”

To be fair, I really didn't need to format my drive to be case-sensitive. It's just that I don't wish to go back and reformat it to use this app. The above should have been a comment and not a review.

Like I explained for dropbox, 7 GB free... woaaa look at copy.com 15 GB and +5 GB/ref, mega.co.nz = 50 GB, adrive = 50 GB, Yunio 1TB, yes TERA free with synch, share, delay, number of downloads... and very fast.

And I have no link with any of those cloud provider.

SkyDrive easily organizes all our files and folders on cloud for accessibility from anyplace, anytime. All we have to do is drag and drop the files or folders to be saved on cloud into the skydrive folder. Excellent way to save up on some space. 7gb is good enough for saving pics from over the years.

Note: It works only on Lion.

I like how Finder works with my SkyDrive account but does anybody know how to connect to someone else's shared SkyDrive folder using Finder like you can with Windows Explorer? I found a link that seemed to describe the process for a Mac but I could not make it work. It seems that the method has changed since that solution came out but I don't know what it is now.

I tried to download and install the Skydrive app but it didnt work. I did an update to Mountain Lion on my pc and after that Skydrive app will not start anymore. I also questioned here http://forums.techarena.in/technology-internet/1472692.htm but none of the replies are worth it. Do you have any other suggestions on how to get skydrive working on Mountain Lion ? TYIA

We chose this over DropBox b/c we had several users that needed the ability to simultaneously edit the same Excel file which worked great until the Excel file was larger than 5MB which is the current limit of what the Web App can handle which stinks since even the most of spreadsheets can easily be larger than 5MB. Another problem we've seen with SD is sync issues--b/c it's a MS product it's a lot more finicky about using certain illegal characters in the file names and limits the full file pathnames to only 256 characters. My suggestion is if you have an existing file structure you're moving to SD then make sure you scrutinize file names and file path lengths. We used "A Better Finder Rename" to scrub illegal characters automatically. Still, even after all that there are sometimes sync issues--not sure why either as the error reporting is quite vague.

thank you for your review as it will probably save me ALOT of time trying to figure out sync issues. Also, thanks for the heads up regarding illegal characters, Im going to check out "A Better File Name" soon after this. I use MAC and the business I bought into uses ..other than Mac .

One of the few things Microsoft gets right. I also use Dropbox, and have used Google Drove and Box...but for those of us who need to still use Microsoft Office, this is a far better choice. More storage, it's faster, it's easier to use, the online user interface is cleaner...it's just better.

Isn't that strange: on November 18, 2012, I downloaded SkyDrive version 17.0. And today Microsoft offers as a new version ... 17.0. Is this really a new version or is it the same one I downloaded more than half a year ago?
Please MacUpdate, could you handle this? It occurs more and more that version numbers don't match with older ones.

The currently downloading version listed as "17.0" but inside the About box it is listed specifically as v17.0.2012.0705. The installer package creation date is July 23, 2013. The app itself has a creation date of July 5, 2013.

I don't know if this is a newly tweaked version. If it is, we can blame Microsoft for the confusion, not MacUpdate. If it's still an old 2012 version, apparently someone at Microsoft updated the creation dates. Again, not MacUpdate's problem.

I hope that's useful info imho.

@ Derekcurrie

Thanks for your reply. The about box of the yesterday installed version on my Mac says: version 17.0, without anything more. And the creation date is ... 24 July 2012 06:40.
Yes, we have to blame first Microsoft. But since it happens more and more that we encounter at MacUpdate confusing version numbers, I would like MacUpdate pressing the software developers to use more clear numbering and telling if it is really a new version.
I don't want to blame MacUpdate, but I hope they will help us to avoid such misunderstandings.

I downloaded the file again and made a new install. What do you think? Version 17.0. Date: 24 July 2012! How did you get a newer version???

In the About box of the app itself (I looked in the Information window) I see the same number as you mentioned. But I only see the date from 2012, not July 5, 2013. Where did you find that?

MacUpdate-Jess replied on 28 Jul 2013
Imho, first, let me say that we content editors at MacUpdate understand your confusion--and frequently share it. Sometimes we're presented dizzying arrays of numbers, only to try to guess which one best represents the information you should receive. Most of the time, we'll use the version info which gives you the most explicit information--if we can find it. Aside from that, we can only give you what we get.

As Derekcurrie points out (and thanks, Derekcurrie!), the version you should be getting when you download will show that it's version 17.0, but will have creation and modification dates of Friday 5 July 2013. If you'll use the 'Download' link above, you should get the version created on 5 July. (Once you've installed the application, highlight it in the Finder and open an information window [Cmd-I or File -> Get Info]. It should display the date I mentioned for both creation and modification dates.) If you still show an older version, try dragging your older version of the application to the trash and reinstalling.

And finally, regarding your suggestion that MacUpdate press developers to be more precise in their version strings,... Well, can you imagine the response if we should press Microsoft to do... anything? :-)

Thank you, MacUpdate Jess, for your extensive reply. I deleted the existing Skydrive from my Applications folder and re-installed with a new download. In the About window of the Skydrive preferences I see the version number: 17.0 (17.0.2012.0705). The window doesn't show any date.
In the Information window the version is only 17.0, the creation date is: Saturday 6 July, 2013 and the modification date is today.
It is clear that the dates are different from what you and Derekcurrie mentioned.
And about pressing Microsoft: I suppose Microsoft is interested in promoting Skydrive via your update listings. Couldn't MacUpdate avoid these misunderstandings by not accepting mentioning software if not is completely clear that the mentioned version is different from the last earlier mentioned version?
Thanks again for your reply.

Evidently Microsoft is in cahoots with Apple in its scheme to force Snow Leopard users to upgrade to the crappier, more consumerist-oriented 10.7+ Apple OS's.

In any case, there is at least one app, MacDropAny, that supports uploading to SkyDrive -- as well as many of the other usual suspects of cloud storage providers.

Didn't know this app existed until today - and now I am happy.

Not happy with the changes to the Skydrive website yesterday though!

Any ideas
