Microsoft OneDrive is an online cloud storage service. It was previously available as two separate programs named SkyDrive and Windows Live Folders which formed a part of the Windows Live Essentials software suite. OneDrive for Business is specifically designed for companies to share files with employees.
This application works on a variety of devices. On Windows PCs, it creates a local folder on the C: drive where all your files are stored. Any change made in this directory will be reflected in the online storage. The synchronization takes place automatically without disturbing you. With the browser-based version of MS Office, called Office Online, you can create and edit MS Office documents wherever you are.
All these features make it a highly useful synchronization program for companies. Still, I miss the Live Folders application with which you could link an existing folder on your hard disk with that of a remote computer. I often used it to keep the documents on my laptop and desktop synced. Sadly, it was omitted in OneDrive.
