Microsoft OneDrive 2013 Build 17.3.1229.0918

An application that runs as an interface between you and the OneDrive storage system, enabling you to keep important files with you anywhere
If you’re looking for an easy and fast way to share files across multiple devices such as PCs, tablets and mobile phones, then you might want to consider Microsoft OneDrive.

Once installed on your PC, this application enables you to upload files of all formats and sizes to the cloud system. They remain there and become accessible from any device that allows you to connect to your SkyDrive account.

The application creates a “SkyDrive” folder on the computer which you can access just like any other folder. To add files you can use simple drag and drop actions or the classic copy paste approach.

Any files that are dropped into the SkyDrive folder are automatically uploaded to your cloud storage account and synchronized across all your devices that have Microsoft OneDrive installed. The application even displays a small “check” on the files that are successfully transferred.

Depending on the file size and your Internet connection, the duration of an upload can vary, as you would expect. Once the content is in the cloud, you can access it from virtually anywhere and share it with anyone via email or direct link.

Of course, the devices you wish to access your files from need to have SkyDrive installed but since the installation itself takes a matter of seconds, you could definitely consider Microsoft OneDrive as an on the fly solution. Instead of carrying a USB or external storage drive with you, why not use something that is virtually impossible to lose or damage.

Microsoft OneDrive runs hidden in the system tray and with a simple right-click you can open your SkyDrive folder, manage your online storage and access its settings.

The concept of Microsoft OneDrive is simplicity and efficiency. You can notice this by accessing the settings section of the app. Apart from the options to choose the folders you want to sync, run the application at Windows startup and let Microsoft OneDrive fetch any files from the currently used PC, there aren’t many other.

In closing, Microsoft OneDrive is a reliable and easy to use application that can definitely help you work more efficient and safe.
