Is OneDrive Right for you?
Unless you have tried it, you may not know for certain, but OneDrive falls a bit short of some other providers in some areas.
If you are a Gmail\GoogleDocs person and don’t use Microsoft Office, there is little reason to make the switch. Google offers about 15GB of free storage (shared amongst each service – Gmail, Drive, Docs and Photos). Just as Google doesn’t work flawlessly with Office documents, Google Docs don’t work flawlessly in Microsoft Office Apps.
If you are someone that needs more than the free amount of storage, there are other cheaper places to look. For example, if you need terabytes for backing up large media collections, take a look at Bitcasa’s “Infinite" plan, which is currently $99/month for unlimited storage. Even their 1TB plan is only $10/month. This makes Microsoft’s $50/year for 100GB look like robbery.
On the other hand, if you are a frequent user of Microsoft Office and want easy access to your documents from your computer, mobile device or any internet capable machine, OneDrive may be the perfect fit for you.
