An update done to OneDrive takes care of your data’s safety there, as it can let you know whether is working there and when.

The update that monitors somehow wheether one of the files that you’ve shared through the OneDrive is being processed by a third party member, can notify you either on your mobile or with a message to your email. Following the same lolgic, OneDrive gives you the ability to search not only your local files but all the data that belongs to you and have been shared with other OneDrive users as well.

That way, it is not required to remember whehter you were the ones who put a file to the cloud first, so that you’ll need to search for it locally on the computer. Furthermore, with this OneDrive update is is estimated that the distant cooperation between multiple users, will be boosted.

Between their applications at work and in the home, it’s clear that services like OneDrive are only going to become more and more ubiquitous over the next few years. Microsoft is wise enough to continue developing its product to corner that market, and it certainly seems that these improvements will further solidify its status as one of the best cloud storage options available.

On paper, the final update sounds the most mundane, but it may be the most useful of all: the ability to search within documents has been expanded to files shared with you as well as your own. As Jason Moore, group program manager of OneDrive puts it: “We extended these features to shared items because while users often remember the filename and location of items they’ve created themselves, they frequently remember shared files by their contents.”

Overall, the syncronization of shared files on your desktop, the knowledge of when someone proceses a file on a shared file on OneDrive and the better searching options, of files that have already been shared, are the most basic changes that this new update brings to the users of cloud. Gradually the cloud is expected to be available to all OneDrive users.
