  1. Folder sync

    Why not make the mobile version just like the Desktop app?

    You should be able to select a folder (or multiple folders) from your mobile device and OneDrive should upload all the files (not just photos or videos) in that folder automatically and every time you modify one of the files in that folder or add a new file, it should automatically sync it with the cloud.

    Unbelievably, OneDrive, nor Dropbox nor Google Drive currently offer such feature. You can only get this feature with a third party app like FolderSync (paid app - Android).

    This should be a native…

    • iOS 11 Files Integration

      Integration with iOS 11 Files is very poor. OneDrive appears as a rudimentary pop-up within Files instead of being integrated the way iCloud Drive is. Please make OneDrive behave exactly like iCloud Drive does within the Files app.

      • Support for .heic files

        Could you please add support for .heic as iOS 11 uses this format and when iOS 11 releases all apple phones will only use this format. As I am on an iOS 11 beta I have noticed my photos are starting to become unviewable in the photos tab and shown as blank .heic files in the files tab. This is a problem that will get more urgent as it gets nearer iOS 11 release as of now for anybody on the beta programme one drive photos is unusable. Please update! Thanks

        • Enable Directory Restores (Versions) - not just file restores

          In https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/6327142-enable-file-versioning-history-for-all-types-of

          you delivered file versioning for all file types. This gives good protection against ransomware and accidental modification.

          However to be usable it is necessary that I can restore a whole directory - I have thousands of files and a 1 by 1 approach will not work.

              • Permission user folders

                Good work!
                We are testing the synchronization between different dividends in SharePoint linked to user accounts.
                We have encountered an unnecessary problem.
                When a user has no permissions for a folder, it appears with a red cross and sync message appears.

                In the mobile app, the folders for which the user is not authorized does not appear, so it should be.
                When do you plan to fix this?

                • Ability for OneDrive Admins to Flag Folders as "Do Not Sync"

                  Ability for OneDrive Administrators to flag some folders in individual users cloud based OneDrive for Business libraries as “do not sync” so that the end-user cannot check them in the Next Gen Sync Client (NGSC) for synchronization to their local machine. The NGSC should honor that attribute and show the folder as “greyed out” – possibly with a hover over pop-up message stating that the folder cannot be synchronized locally because of IT policy.

                  Options should be available for bulk application to all users OneDrive folders by specifying a folder name (or folder name pattern) to be flagged as non-synchronizable,…

                  • shared by me

                    Could you add a menu "Shared by me" (similar as "Shared with me") in OneDrive web interface on the left side menu?

                    More about the user need: on OneDrive, files and folder are shared "only you" by default but you can share files/folders hidden in folders or sub-folders which stay unshared. Over time it becomes very hard to see what you shared, thus having this page view of all files/folders "shared by me" would be very convenient for users...

                      • Duplicate files/photos ( duplicates )

                        Like other suggestions I would like a way to not have duplicate files/photos, to save space.

                        Can we have some specific way to:

                        1) run a "duplicate" search that can automatically delete files/photos based on a name, size and date
                        2) search for duplicates and then list them all in name order, showing name, size and date to then give option to review then delete
                        3) a file compare search for similar looking files, then the option to delete one(s)

                            • Files on demand, automatic cleanup

                              When using files on demand over time, OneDrive will start to sync a lot of files which after some time will become inactive. Today the user would have to right-click the OneDrive-folder and select Clean up in order to stop the sync of these files and delete the local files stored on the user's device.

                              I propose a new optional feature. When files or folders have been inactive for a period of time (say 30 days) I would like OneDrive to automatically clean up, deleting the locally stored files and folders but still keeping them in the cloud.

                              It should…

                                We still use Dropbox as OneDrive doesn't play nicely with the Sketch.app files on the Mac our user experience designers use. We'd love to move off of Dropbox entirely and only use OneDrive, but aren't able to until Sketch.app files are better supported.

                                    • iOS 11 Files App Integration

                                      Like iCloud Drive, Google Drive and Dropbox, please integrate OneDrive into the Files app, introduced in iOS 11. This is most convenient for me as juggle different cloud services for personal, university and work purposes. Also, the UI is a lot more responsive and consistent.

                                      • Improve the feature of synchronizing more than 100,000 items on a stable basis for OneDrive.

However, I need to operate this process frequently so that I wish the feature will be improved enables sync more than 100,000 items on a stable basis as soon as possible.

                                        Although I have concerns about if the synchronization is going to be impossible to proceed unexpectly, but so as MS described as "We are working on optimization of OneDrive to improve processing of many Libraries." below the Reference information.
