  1. Enable FLAC Music Streaming from OneDrive

    Many users today have FLAC music libraries. FLAC (free lossless audio codec) is a free, open-source, CD-quality file format which is in many ways superior to MP3. Unfortunately, you're currently unable to stream FLAC music from OneDrive through Groove Music.

    Personally speaking, all but a few of my songs stored in OneDrive are FLAC format. Unfortunately, Groove music doesn't recognize these songs unless they are saved to my device locally. Therefore my Groove music library on my Lumia 950XL is empty, aside from the few songs in OneDrive I have saved as MP3s. Even if you search for a song…

    • Make OneDrive 64 bit!

      Make Onedrive 64 bit! Simple as that! 32 bit Onedrive process on 64 bit OS in 2016 is simply unacceptable!

      • Slow upload

        One drive has terrible upload speed. I'm nowhere near my upload cap, and I have slow speeds to one drive on all networks. A Google search shows it's a very common problem. Please fix or I will be switching to another cloud provider. Thanks

        • More secure file sharing

          Today a shared folder or document ist just protected by the link to it. If someone captures the email containing the link, then he has access to all the shared files.
          To share more confidential files I would like to share with a specific microsoft account. Then the files are at least as secure as the microsoft account of the person i shared the files with.

          Marketing consideration:
          Why to pay for office 365 home for 5 family members when I can't share the 1 TB of OneDrive space securely with them?

          • Cryptowall and Ramsonware - Prevent OneDrive files to be encrypted

            We are seeing an increase in this cases of cryptowall and ramsonware, were users see their computers infected with this virus.

            The virus will encrypt all user files (jpg, pdf, xlsx,docx, etc.) except system files.

            It would be very helpful, to have the option to have OneDrive files restored to a previous date, even if that option was only available at a OneDrive Support level.

            If this option is not possible, due to server space to store all info in duplicated, it would be easier from the technical side to block .ccc, .micro, and other known file extensions in OneDrive.

            • Add ability to "mark" a specific folder anywhere in a PC to be connected to OneDrive.

              So that if something is added inside the folder, it automatically uploads to OneDrive.

              Reasons: Users may have multiple partitions and so, the "C" Drive may not have enough space to keep files.

                • create anonymous guest links on the folder just like files in OD4B

                  For files you can create anonymous guest links on the file and set it to be view/edit and require sign-in or not but you can't for a folder.

                  In the consumer version of OneDrive you can do this on folders. Please make this available in OD4B. This is a huge missing feature that may cause us to go back to Dropbox.

                  • New sync client must support team sites

                    Horrified to read this in the FAQ for the new sync client:

                    "Our focus right now is exclusively on OneDrive for Business cloud sync. We’re still looking at our broader sync strategy for Team Sites and On Prem. The existing sync client for OneDrive for Business will continue to support sync in these solutions."

                    Sync of team sites is *very important*. I know several businesses who only use the team site (because they want to share documents).

                    If you still have to run the old, broken sync client for team sites this is a massive disappointment and means users will…

                    • Allow a Guest Link for a video to play in the browser

                      When I share a video from OneDrive for Business using a guest link, I want viewers to be able to play the video in the browser.
                      Currently, they have to download the video before playing it.

                        • Make select folder offline too

                          Since OneDrive now support offline file in iOS, I hope OneDrive team can implement selecting folders for offline as well. I would be much easier to have this option instead of one my one selecting each files in the folder. Do hope OneDrive will implement this. Thank you

                            Could you update it to include improvements from the Next Generation Sync Client?

                              Allow an online sync only for OneDrive, like Windows 8.1 file explorer did.
                              Most of PC don't have enough storage to keep files on HDD.
                              That will really improve productivity !

                              • Fix special characters in company name bug on mac

                                This is stated as fixed in version 17.3.6378.0329 of the mac app store app, but the problem is still the same.

                                If you have a special character in your company name - for example / - the mac client is unable to use the folder you have chosen.

                                A/S is the primary company type in Denmark, and names should include this notation. Because of this, the problem is widespread in Denmark.

                                I guess there are more special characters that are not being handled on the mac as well.

                                Read about the problem here:

                                • Add options of wifi-only and pause (all) for uploading

                                  Sometimes, one needs to upload big but not urgent files so it's just not worth it to use too much cellular data, so then the wifi-only option would be great. And in the same circumstance of not urgent files uploading, pausing the upload temperarily for some urgent need of quick network usage is also convenient.

                                  • “only accessible over a selected Windows LiveID” (not all Live IDs)

                                    basically I really like the share function in OneDrive and OneNote. Unfortunately I’m not able to prevent unauthorized access to a share via link. Everyone who gets access to this link is also able to access my share (for example if I send this link to the wrong e-mail receiver).

                                    It would be a lot more secure if there is an option called “only accessible over a Windows LiveID” (not all Live IDs). Sadly at the moment, without any security option, this sharing feature is totally insecure.

                                    Note:
                                    Did anyone of you recognize, that there is no option to share…

                                    • Allow opening parent folder from within Office Online

                                      Allow users to open the parent folder by right-clicking the parent folder at the top of any Word, PowerPoint, or Excel online file in OneDrive. Currently, there is no right-click option: if you select it, you are redirected from the file you are working on to its parent folder. This is not helpful at all. Allow us to right-click if we choose too: otherwise, I have to be using the Chrome browser, duplicate the tab, and then click on the link to the parent folder and sometimes then I'll see notifications that I'm editing my own file after I leave.…

                                      • Create a copy of shared file to own Onedrive for Business

                                        It should be easy to create a copy of a shared file to own OneDrive for Business.

                                        For example: teacher creates a Word file and shares it to students. At the moment it is difficult for students to copy the Word file to own OneDrive for Business

                                        • Pin files/folders to Windows 10 Mobile startscreen

                                          Re-enable the option to pin files or folders to the startscreen. First files was removed and in the latest version it became impossible to pin Folders to the Windows 10 Mobile startscreen. This was possible. Pinning is THE distinguishing and superhandy feature of Windows Phone/10 Mobile. Why is this gone????!!!!!!
