  1. Remove the limit (20,000) of files that can be stored in OneDrive for Business

    There is a hard limit of 20,000 files on top of the file size limit. Please remove the # of file limit.

    • Enable differential sync / only sync parts of the files that changed

      incremental sync is a must. If a large file is only slightly changed, currently the entire file needs to be re-uploaded. This is a very slow and inefficient process. If only the changes to the file needed to be uploaded, this would be a significant improvement and also be a competitive advantage for Microsoft compared to other cloud storage products. This would make syncing so much more efficient.

      • OneDrive Photos

        i know onedrive is posed as a storage only solution
        but it would be really cool to take google's and dropbox approach and make photos a priority

        by either a seperate app (that use's the same onedrive account) or an update to the exciting, features like auto face recognition, auto enhance, video transcoding (for mobile viewing), full tags support and most importantly a native way to browse through the faces/albums/tags/dates/locations/memories

        • Selective folder sync

          We should be able to select any folder for sync since not anyone keeps all files/folders in one Sync folder. Also, the possibility to select where we want to store each folder on OneDrive

          • Make One Drive for Business good.

            I hate to sound like a jerk, but seriously, this is by far the most terrible feature of Office 365.

            The office cache handler causes no end of sync issues for my staff, from cpu usage to files not uploading.

            The icon is ugly and pixelated on hidpi displays, the restrictions on file names, sizes, numbers, etc. Make it incredibly hard for a company with legacy systems to use.

            My company uses O365 but recently switched to DropBox for business, which actually works as you'd expect.

            I love you guys, and I love OneDrive personal, why is the business version…

            • Add a pause button to OneDrive Mac Sync client

              OneDrive needs a pause button! Dropbox, Google Drive, etc. all have a way to stop syncing temporarily, like when you're on a Hotel WiFi or transit WiFi and don't really want to have OneDrive using all your bandwidth. OneDrive sync client doesn't have a pause button, which means I have to quit the app, which always seems to cause problems.

              • OneDrive Capture Tool and Quick Share Features

                OneDrive Capture(Snipping) Tool
                - Similar to Snipping Tool, Snaggit, OneNote, Puush, Gyazo except automatically uploads image to a special folder on OneDrive similar to how phone pictures go to "Camera Roll", these pictures would go into a "Screenshots" folder.
                - Different keyboard shortcuts for full screen screenshot, focused window screenshot, select your area screenshot
                - Depending on the key combination, say if you hold shift during the key combination, it will determine whether a dialog will pop up asking what you want to do. For example Ctrl + 4 would give you a select-area screenshot and AUTOMATICALLY save the OneDrive…

                • Enable remote wipe of data from sync'd machines

                  Fairly self explanatory - Syncing company data to all of your personal machines is great but what happens when you leave the company or something needs to be retracted?
                  Having multiple copies of synchronized libraries on untrusted machines is a huge security risk, administrators should have the option to see which machines are synchronized to OneDrive for Business and SharePoint libraries and be able to stop synchronization and/or wipe information from these machines.

                  • Allow unlimited file size for syncing from a desktop app.

                    As much as I appreciate the hard work of the Onedrive team for removing the 2GB file size limit and pushing the limit to 10GB, I was really hoping for an unlimited file size when syncing from the desktop or other localized app. I might be an edge case, but I use a competitor to sync VHD's (Virtual Hard Drives) that I use for various purposes and those are far larger than 10GB.

                    • Folder selective sync with OneDrive for Business

                      I am using OneDrive for Business on Windows 8.1 PC and have 1TB plan. Once I upload files to OneDrive I don't want to download them all.

                      I want to be able select folders I want to sync so I don't need to download all files (1TB).

                        • Allow local accounts full use of desktop and modern apps

                          The desktop and modern apps on Windows 8.1 require you to log in to the computer with a Microsoft Account in order to access any functionality at all. This dramatically limits my ability to use OneDrive due to two distinct situations that affect me.

                          1) IT policy at my day-job company allows me to have personal content on my work machine within certain boundaries, but Group Policy prohibits logging into our machines with a Microsoft Account. This means that I can't access any consumer OneDrive content on such devices without going through the website.

                          2) I keep a separate Microsoft…

                              I keep a lot of documents on OneDrive and on Windows i can select what to sync and to keep available offline. I would like to be able to do the same on Windows Phone so the documents/folders i care about would be available offline. Simple thing, but i dont see it available right now. Seems to be core part of the functionality on Windows app?

                                      One App for OneDrive *and* OneDrive Business

                                      I recommend Microsoft develop one single unified app that connects to both OneDrive Personal and OneDrive Business services (vs. the existing two separate apps) as they recently did with the Android version.
