What's This?

Business accounts always get more importance over individuals. And when there are services that are business-oriented, it becomes almost a compulsion for companies to keep them improving, may it be in the form of new features or reduced prices. OneDrive for business is one such service from Microsoft that always tries to deliver its best to the customers.


Microsoft has now announced new features and improvements on OneDrive for Business. On the office blog, Microsoft in an announcement wrote, “OneDrive for Business has made significant progress in the last 6 months, and was recently named a Leader by Forrester Research in “The Forrester Wave: Enterprise File Sync and Share Platforms, Cloud Solutions, Q1 2016.” Jeff Teper, corporate Vice President for SharePoint and OneDrive further wrote, “It’s an honor to get industry recognition like this, but we know there’s always more for us to do to improve the service. Today, we’re announcing important improvements and new capabilities in our sync, browser, and mobile experiences, as well as new IT controls for administrators.” Here are the improvements that Microsoft is bringing to OneDrive for business:

  1. You can now view files online: Click on any document in Windows Explorer and click on “View Online.” It will direct you to the OneDrive for business folder or file present in the browser.
  2. Setup has been improved: Users now do not need registry keys on Windows or Terminal window on Mac to install the “new OneDrive sync client”
  3. New OneDrive sync client: Sync reliability and performance has been improved
  4. Windows 8.1 support has been added
  5. No need to resync: With an update for seamless client migration, users who are using the old sync client (groove.exe) do not require a resync
  6. Pause sync: With this feature, users will be able to suspend the process for a period of time
  7. Other improvements: Small files have got a “upload and download speed” boost
