What’s the point of OneDrive? Why can’t it be a flexible as DropBox? I really want to take advantage of the 1Tb upgrade that’s coming. With drop box I down load an app in windows, iOS, OS whatever and I get a folder that is common to all machines. I upload or change and all users with permissions get notification. I do the same with OneDrive and all it does is put a shortcut on my machine to folded created on my local HHD. Whats the point in that, it’s supposed to be a remote cloud drive, isn’t it? OneDrive, I now discover, requires be to fart around with all the above. The browser access to OneDrive shows my PCs but thats not a backup it’s a network. as soon as the PC closes or looses connection it disappears. I just don’t get it? I posted this as a comment on a MS Tech Support page some time ago and received no answer, so hello MS Forum. I created my own reply which will appear next.
