Good until it lasted

For a week now, the application won't work. Right after opening, the application crashes. However, it stays on the taskbar as an open program. It has been a week since I reported it. I would not recommend this application and neither the competition, Dropbox, because both are useless now--same level.

Needs some additional views

This app works well at showing me the files and folders associated with the various projects in which I'm assigned. Unfortunately those folders/files are presented in a File Explorer "Tile" view which means any file name that's longer than 15-16 characters (IOW, all of them) show up as ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOP...docx There's no way to change to a list view or details view to see the full file name. There's also no hover and see the file name is a tool tip. If additional views are offered this tool will be very useful. The workaround is to use a web browser or sync the files locally. The former works well but I don't have the SSD space for the latter.

Very Useful

Gives me a way to share important files on my site. Easy to use and pretty reliable.

Needs one feature

It drives me insane that I can't select and save more than one file at time to my device(SP3). If there is a way to do this I can't find it.

Was very good, now hopeless

Used this successfully for a few years but could never really work out my storage level and problem this year is much worse. Have 50GB in account but deleting files and clearing trash never reduced storage. Currently have deleted everything but still recorded as having 32.7GB three months later. Really, there are better packages on offer - not sure now that there are many worse!

Watch out for the sync trap

Would be great if I could trust the sync feature 100%. NEVER expect the document to just sync without saving it locally or you will lose your data. If the network fails or it takes forever to sync it may lose all of your changes.

feel disconnected

I cannot sync the documents with the apps only... so inconvenient, dropbox will do that for me automatically.... so does google drive, need to improve..

Simple & Very Useful!

This app saved my picture collection that I uploaded to it to test. Then my laptop died unexpectedly! I found out how important back up is in real life. (you'd think I knew, I have been computing since the early '90's) 10 GB is a lot for free!

Great Idea, needs work

The instructions are lacking and this app does not seem to be capable of making shared files available offline for read-only, like the android and IOS versions do. If this could be updated, this would be a great app for windows tablets like the Surface 3.
