Microsoft’s OneDrive, formerly known as SkyDrive is their cloud storage solution for both personal and business users. Allowing you to keep all your files and photos in OneDrive, and access them across all your devices. Being integrated with Microsoft platforms, it handles office files very well such as Outlook, PowerPoint presentations, Excel spreadsheets, and so on. It does not mean that Apple OS users would not benefit from using OneDrive, but it’s going to obviously attract Windows users first and foremost.

OneDrive is essentially a central service for backing up all your data and keeps it at that. It doesn’t try to be any other service other than housing your data for you to access across windows, mac, android or iOS. Their service provides plans for both business and home based uses. When you sign up you get a free 15 GB of data to store any sorts of files so as long as they meet the size requirements.

One of the great thing about the service they provide is the fact that they offer options so that you can earn extra free storage. You can earn an extra 15 GB of data storage when you backup your camera roll. Added to this when you refer a friend to OneDrive you can earn yourself an extra 500 MB of data, this is coupled with the fact that if you refer up to ten friends you can earn yourself an extra 5 GB of data.

Business users can take advantage for automatic file synchronizing for peace of mind backups with multiple user accounts each having 1TB of storage. Search functions allow for easy file sharing and finding across the office or remotely thanks to being on the cloud.
