    Microsoft OneDrive for AVP

    Anyone know if MS is working on bringing OneDrive to the AVP? Having the Office apps is great, but kinda useless if I can’t access my files.

    Does anyone run their office file server on a Mac and have it integrated with OneDrive or My Drive (Google)?

    If you do, I would like to chat with you. I run a small office (no more than two users at a time), and per requirement out of my control, I need to have all of my files backed up locally even if I already have everything backed up via cloud even if I have two cloud storages synced together. I...

    macOS pops up with window every now and then

    I'm on macOS Monterrey 12.6.8. Every now and then for a second or two I see a Finder window pop up, I think related to the security settings, mentioning that it is checking I have Microsoft Office 365 installed but I don't personally use the OneDrive app (I very occasionally use...

    iCloud iCloud or Microsoft 365

    I am really struggling to choose between ecosystems. I know a lot of people say that there is no need to choose and you can use whatever you want (right tool for the problem), but as I like to keep my stuff organized – I really need to choose. 😊 Now I am using iCloud+ with custom domain (also...

    Mac M1 running Cloud Storage - which is the best IYHO

    I am a web/software dev and I have always been in the habit of keeping everything in the cloud for the ease of having everything accessible on any device (phone, laptop, desktop and tablet) and for backup purposes (and sometimes reverting to an older version). I have used Dropbox in the past but...

    OneDrive killing battery life on 2018 MBP 15"

    As the title says, my 2018 MacBook Pro 15" seems to have a bit of a problem with OneDrive syncing, with it being a massive battery hog. It doesn't seem to be slowing down the Mac at all. Initially, I thought it was just due to the fact it was syncing the files from the OneDrive server, but I've...

    The OneDrive macOS / OS X sync client has been a bit of a mess for a long time. For example, an amusing bug report from 2016 triggered this statement from MS tech support "Unfortunately the sync errors reported by the OneDrive client are due to filenames which are illegal on the OneDrive sync...
