I think it's slightly limited - probably as much functionality as Google Docs/Sheets offers. If you're a Word or Excel power user, the web version may not cut it.

The best part of the MS Home license is the 1TB One Drive per account. I would not put personal files on business One Drive, plus you will lose access should you lose/leave your job with no recourse to get back in (files are owner by the business, not by you!). I highly recommending keeping Personal and Business files separate.

Yes, but heavily discussed on other threads that One drive has a limit to the individual file size you can download. And if files paths are long one drive doesn't warn and you end up having files not synced to the drive

What happened to those sketchy Office keys you could buy on eBay for $6? They used to sell by the thousands.

Lol not sure if you're the OneDrive boogie man or what. Keep in mind OneDrive is the OFFICIAL solution deployed by Microsoft specifically for Windows. Whatever issues you're having are very likely user error or you're using it outside of it's intended use.

I've been using Microsoft 365 Family, specifically for OneDrive storage for over a year now. Works out to be something like $1.50 /month per person. Unbeatable value, Google charges $2 /month for a paltry 100 gb

Even g2a doesn't have them anymore. Haven't checked myself but I've heard allkeyshop & aliexpress still have them.

Ok then Let us say I use a SLR and have a 4k video 300gb in size. Can you enlighten us and confirm the complete file can be uploaded to one drive? If yes, i will be buying a subscription rightaway. If no, don't call the issues user error. There are similar issues with file path, but that would be windows (Google and u will know what I'm saying)

Past few weeks searched on Ebay but only found super sketchy listings that make you go to some 3rd party site. Hell no. Couple yrs ago bought 2 keys for office 2016, both legit and worked non stop.

Today only on Amazon did I find legit keys like (Off 2019 Pro +). Cost has risen though $15.99 instead of 4 bucks..
The activation a bit weird you need to do phone activation... so far so good.

Search on Amazon for seller kidseden. The guy (s) has + reviews so bit the bullet. time will tell if it stay like office 2016..

I've come across the long path issue more than once, so it's not user error. However, I don't do syncing, but upload via the web interface, so it does say when a file fails to upload.

Google Workspace (formerly GSuite) gives you unlimited storage for $15 a month, though it's not advertised as such but it is unlimited, they don't enforce any limit. It's also only one user for that price but if all you really care about is storage you simply create a directory or entire shared drive for each of your family members. People have been using it like this for years, putting many many terabytes on there, storing media for Plex or other kinds of streaming servers, misc backups, whatever.

I've personally uploaded files over 900GB, over 800GB, to my Google Drive.

Depending on the situation, I will upload/download using the web interface, or sometimes FileZilla Pro which has Google Drive support, or sometimes rclone on Linux, though it can be installed on Windows too. I've never tried any of the official sync software.

Not trying to come in here like Google fanboy but since you were discussing storage specifically, $15/month for unlimited, that's probably the best storage deal out there right?

Well first of all, you would have to run your camera for a full 60 minutes to get that much footage in a SINGLE 4K file. Most camera batteries wouldn't even last that long unless they're fairly new. Further, you'd need an SD card with 512gb of storage as 256gb wouldn't cut it and 300gb / 400gb cards are pretty rare. Further still, almost any modern camera splits up video files for easy importing and editing in Adobe Premiere.

But I'll indulge you and say NO, OneDrive does not support a SINGLE 300gb file. It does support up to 250gb per SINGLE file. And if you're uploading 250gb files, you get a WHOPPING FOUR files worth.

So again, you're clearly using it well outside it's intended use, which sounds like a commercial application in your example anyway. Anyone who's not a complete muppet would be able set their camera to split video files or split files through something like 7zip if absolutely necessary.

I'd suggest you check out reddit.com/r/datahoarder. Google DOES enforce limits and there are well established datapoints on the subject posted within that subreddit. 900gb is peanuts compared to the data users on that subreddit have.

lol The hidden high cost of free. Winking Face You're certainly paying for Office 365 each time you're paying your tuition. Then again, that's the least Microsoft could do to reward you for partaking in higher education for its diminishing value and rising cost these days.

Not poo-pooing higher education, but it's a highway robbery for what you get in return (a life of indentured slavery to pay off your student loans). I'm a college graduate myself (many moons ago). Fun fact: did you know student loans are not wiped from your personal debts even if you declared bankruptcy? The education system now owns you. Neutral Face
Why settle for full retail price when you can wait and get it at a lower price for better value (even better if there's a bundled freebies deal)? 😉
