OneDrive is coming soon! Tell us your use cases!


We have been working on a long requested feature, OneDrive support!

Would love to hear how you will use Insync with OneDrive support in your workflow. Is it for multi-cloud syncing? Is it for a universal interface to both clouds? Please share. It allows us to better understand how to make Insync work better for you.

Thanks :wink:

OneDrive Support

My use case is primarily educational - I get a free OneDrive account through my school with 25Gb of space.

I also like having Word and Excel documents auto-save, and typically this is only achievable through OneDrive. I haven’t (yet) installed Word and Excel on WINE, and for such things I typically revert to Windows when I have to, but if you could figure out a way to get Word and Excel files to auto-save on Linux with Insync that would be amazing! (Spoiler alert: my Insync use case is as a client for Linux. On Windows I stick to the official clients made by each cloud service provider.)


Sometimes i need to access my company onedrive for business account from my private LINUX PC


Syncing to both in case something goes wrong.


i changed from Google Drive (with insync) to Onedrive. It is my primary cloudstorage and i would love to use insync with it.

When will “soon” be ?


Using gdrive for private stuff.
Using ondrive due to work restrictions.
Having the ability to dual sync some folders would be great.
Thanks. :smiley:


Hey @peter_mcc. Mirror copy? Do you have any workarounds for this now?


For now I only sync with one OneDrive account so I just use their app. For me the advantage of Insync is the ability to sync to two Google Drive accounts (otherwise I’d probably use their app).


Support for Box Drive (which I assume uses the same/similar API to OneDrive) would also be great.


I would use OneDrive to sync work documents mostly since we have standardized on OneDrive.

Another use case is Syncing from Linux up to OneDrive and then back down to a Windows System for document editing in Office365 and then back the other way. The One drive support also gives me the ability to then open the document inside of onedrive and use the office365 online tools for presenting or editing.
