OneDrive vs. Share Point: File Storage Strategy
OneDrive and SharePoint are very similar when it comes to file storage. While SharePoint offers much more than just file storage today, we will be focusing on only the storage aspects of these two Office 365 applications.
OneDrive is an excellent application for storing personal files that rarely get shared with others. The only way to share files in OneDrive is to go through the process of enabling files to be shared. Because you need to go through a step-by-step process to share files in OneDrive, it makes it the better choice for storing personal files.
SharePoint, on the other hand, can be used to set up private sites that enable you to share files with a select group of people. Once you set up a SharePoint site, everyone in the selected group will have access to the files placed into it. Because of the ease of access, SharePoint is an excellent option for sharing files with different departments in your organization or projects with different clients.
