We have a business with a mixture of Windows 7 and Windows 8 machines. We currently have people on the road and at the office who need access to the same files. We have a Windows Server with File Shares that both remote users (via VPN) and local users have access to. There is about 300GB worth of data in the shares.
We are interested in moving to remotely hosting our files and since we already have Office 365 we are looking into OneDrive for our cloud file solution. My understand is OneDrive is similar to DropBox.
Our questions are:
Will all the files sync to each machine, or would it work like a Windows Share where they are only stored on OneDrive?
Are there any speed restrictions? We are reading that many people are experiencing VERY long upload times.
What other issues should we be aware of.
Are we able to "Map" specific folders as drives so our users do not experience any change in the way they work?
Thank you, and we appreciate any advice or experiences you can give us.
