    One Drive W10! Should You Use This Feature?

    Hi as promised, I'm starting a thread about the W10 One Drive. This is all new stuff for me. I have never used Cloud before.
    I've been playing around a little with it and could use some suggestions.
    If this has already been discussed here, sorry. Show me the link on the forum.
    Anyone here using this W10 feature?? Please comment. Looks like a cool feature. It wasn't on my W7.
    I used Google but I like to hear from first hand users.
    Thank You!

    How is this "One Drive W10" any different to the OneDrive I've been using since Feb of '09?

    I have no idea friend! It's all new to me. I have 15GB free. I have no idea what I'll do with it. That's why I started this thread, Thanks for your reply, but I have no idea how it's different. I like free! Cloud storage is all new to me. I save my good stuff on two external USB's. I'm just learning what's new in W10 and this is new to me!
    Thanks for your reply!

    I keep all of my important documents, and stuff on OneDrive. I have 130 GB for free. I feel save knowing that they are not on a drive attached to my computer which could die.

    I don't know what they are giving away now. I don't think they are giving away all the space on OneDrive anymore, but you can check them out here.

    There are a number of threads about OneDrive (it's standard in W10 but not new) and how it has changed over the past few years and how it continues to change. You may want to just search on OneDrive (one word) for more details. Be aware that last month MS announced they were reducing the free account to 5GB, you'll find quite a bit about that.

    It's a little early yet to see if the strategy is working for me or not, but I use Cryptsynch, a free App that uses 7 Zip to encrypt the target folder of a designated folder pair. The unencrypted files sit in my Library and the encrypted files in Onedrive. A change in either, automatically synchs the other. Since Onedrive is integrated into Win 10, that synchs itself as well. All seems pretty slick--so far.
