    That's interesting! Have just been deciding which way to go for a collaborative teamwork in our company (be that: OneDrive, Google Docs or DropBox) . Because we use SKYPE I liked the neat integration of OneDrive with Skype messaging. However my main concern is training the staff to understand the difference between using Excel online or downloading for use on DeskTop Excel. I can see lots of issues here with staff getting confused about what they have clicked and finding themselves editing on desktop and not real-time online. Obviously the data protection and data security issues are a real concern too, particularly as they might end up by sharing sensitive information by accident with someone else. By email our Excel spreadsheets would normally be protected with a password. I am assuming here that if they download an Excel file from OneDrive that password protection is not an option. That currently makes email a securer option than OneDrive! Hope to hear more from Microsoft about the prevention of further sharing and downloading of files. In the meantime we will pilot OneDrive in a small way within our company.
