Although Microsoft can produce some well functioning products, there are times that they miss the mark completely. As technology moves onward, online storage space has become a necessity. Instead of just relying on local storage, users can access important information and documents virtually anywhere. The only requirements are a high speed internet connection, an online storage account, and a device to access it. Considering the popularity of online storage, Microsoft has tried to enter this realm as well.
Office Live Workspace is more of a personalized version of online storage. It allows you to share important documents, share calendars, and create discussions. Although working with Office Live Workspace was a pleasure at times, there were also too many bugs to make it completely enjoyable. In its beta stage, I wouldn’t feel secure enough to place all of my vital documents into this online storage.
One of the largest disappointments is the lack of editing once a document is uploaded. If you need to add something or make other changes when accessing from another computer, you must do so before uploading. I’ve worked with other free online storage systems that give me this capability without any issues. I would much prefer working with an online storage system that offers flexibility on my level.
Some of the best benefits of working with Office Live Workspace is the clean interface free from unwanted advertisements. Finding controls are not a problem because they are conveniently placed in easy to reach locations. Hopefully in the future, this program will have a more stable platform and added features for complete customization.
