What does the OneDrive folder do?

When you install the OneDrive app for Mac, a copy of your OneDrive is downloaded to your Mac and put in the OneDrive folder. This folder is kept in sync with OneDrive. If you add, change, or delete a file or folder on the OneDrive website, the file or folder is added, changed, or deleted in your OneDrive folder and vice versa.

To upload files to OneDrive automatically, just copy or move the files to your OneDrive folder using the Finder, or save them in your OneDrive folder from an app. Files you upload this way can be up to 10 GB in size. If you installed the OneDrive app on other computers, the files will automatically be added to the OneDrive folders on them, too.

You can also use the Finder to rename and delete files, create new folders, and move files around in your OneDrive folder. The changes will automatically be made in OneDrive and your other computers that have the OneDrive app installed.

Why do I have to confirm my OneDrive folder on my Mac?

OneDrive is following recommendations from Apple that Mac OS X apps have sandboxing. With sandboxing, the OneDrive app will access only the files it needs on your Mac. This means we need to ask you to confirm the location of your OneDrive folder. If you select any folder other than your current OneDrive folder, you'll have to go back through setup and re-download the contents of your OneDrive. To learn more about app sandboxing, search the Apple website.

How do I show or hide the OneDrive app icon in the Dock?

The OneDrive app icon is hidden by default. To show it in the Dock, click to deselect the Hide Dock iconcheckbox in Preferences.

Can I choose folders in my OneDrive that I don't want to sync on my Mac?

Mac

Yes. When you first set up OneDrive, click Choose folders to sync. If you didn't do this when you set up OneDrive, you can do it in Preferences:

  1. Click the OneDrive icon in the menu bar.

  2. Click Preferences, click the Choose Folders tab, and then click Choose Folders.

For each folder, you can choose to sync everything in the folder, individual folders within the folder, and files that aren't in any subfolders within the folder. If you choose to sync only some items, new items you add to the OneDrive folder on your Mac will sync to OneDrive, but items you add to OneDrive from the website or other devices won't be synced to your Mac unless they're in the folders you chose to sync. If you choose to stop syncing folders on your Mac, they'll be deleted from the OneDrive folder on that computer, but they'll remain in OneDrive.

NOTE: You can't choose individual files you want to sync, and you can't choose to sync files or folders shared with you.

Can I recover files or folders I deleted?

How do I uninstall the OneDrive app?

Just drag the OneDrive app to the Trash.

I try to use multiple services. Google Drive, DropBox, Skydrive (now OneDrive) – the personal version – OneDrive for Business, Evernote, Wunderlist, Exchange Tasks, OneNote, etc etc. Why? Well to compare and contrast. What is good, what is bad, what is missing, what is – ubiquitous.

A few months ago I was use Evernote heavy (again). It is pretty ubiquitous. Every device, platform, web, etc. But, I really do like Microsoft OneNote. There are pros and cons to both apps, and I really do like how Evernote does tags, but that is a different blog post. OneNote was almost everywhere. iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Windows, Web.. but missing a native Mac OS X app. That changed today. FINALLY a native Mac app for OneNote. There are third party apps that kind of work, but nothing like the real deal. Integrates with OneDrive (personal) via a Microsoft account.

I think even bigger news is the OneNote API – allowing for apps and services to integrate with OneNote, very big news indeed.

But what is missing? One glaring omission to complete the story, in my opinion, is the lack of any kind of client or integration on Mac OS for OneDrive for Business. There are OneDrive for Business apps for Windows and iOS, and Office Mobile apps which let you access your OneDrive for Business content for iOS, Android and Windows Phone. But glaringly omitted is any kind of Mac OS X app. Now, I was secretly hoping with the release of OneNote for Mac, that it would have integration with Office 365 or On-premises SharePoint out of the box, which would solve part of the problem, but I don’t see that integration, or I can’t find it.

Why do we need OneDrive for Business for Mac? Because, most organizations have a mix of client operating systems. These orgs want to use things like SharePoint, or Office 365 – OneDrive for Business – to let users save and share documents – internally and externally – replacing consumer (and faux business) apps like Dropbox and Google Drive, even OneDrive personal edition. But without a Mac client, it is VERY hard to get complete buy in to use the OneDrive tools. Yes, Mac users can use the web, but – they don’t like being treated like 2nd class citizens, and I don’t blame them. I use both Windows and Mac, and it would be awesome to be able to go between and use the same tools and services. Hopefully, someday.
