  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!

      • Implement a warning message or hard stop when character limitation is met on OneDrive folder structure

        User Experience:

        Users create detailed folder structure to ensure organizational needs and the risk that the combination of the folder name length in combination with the file name can exceed the character limitations listed above. The system allows the user to create the path and file name with no warning that the limitation is exceeded. Once the file is saved synchronization between OneDrive online and the hard drive will not occur. Additionally, users have experienced file lose.

        Change Request:

        Implement a warning message or hard stop to the end user when the limitation is near or met on character length…

        • "Sync online only" for OneDrive

          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 !

          • 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…

            • 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

              • 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.

                  We request whatever iOS has for windows phone 10 with most priority.
                  It's absolutely not fair to decide the feature/function for user according to the votes number. The whole world know that windows phone user is much less than of iOS and android, and this is Microsoft's fault. Most import, these who insist to use windows phone is your most faithful user. If you treat your most faithful user like this continuously, I really suggest you, Microsoft company, give up its windows phone system and mobile device,because you will lose your last key users forever.

                    • 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????!!!!!!

                      • “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 syncing of Groups

                          The file-sharing and collaboration aspect of OneDrive has to be priority #1.
                          Without the ability to sync TeamSites the product is pretty much useless to most customers (I don't count ODfB cause it'
                          s broken).

                          It seems we will have to wait for that functionality for quite some time.
                          So how about allowing us to sync Groups?

                          I am willing to migrate all my current document libraries to groups if you provide the functionality to sync them with the new OneDrive client.

                            • Sorting photos

                              When sorting photos by date, the app seems to sort by date modified as opposed to the date when the photo was taken. When looking at pictures, it is more helpful to sort by the date the picture was taken. It would be helpful if the app could read the meta-data of when the picture was taken and sort that way instead of by when the file was created or modified.

                              • 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.

                                  • Allow shared folders to be stored within sub folders

                                    The new feature that allows shared folders to be synced on the desktop is awesome.
                                    however, shared folders are added to the root of the OneDrive folder and cannot be nested into the file structure. That is an issue : the root folder will soon be full of random shared folder. Allow us to store them where they belong ! Think of project-related stuff, pictures that you want to store in your "summer 2015" folder,...
                                    Google Drive implementation is fine : you get an overview of all shared folders on the website ("shared with me" tab) and you can nest…

                                    • Disable sharing

                                      Prevent Sharing

                                      We would like to be able to prevent sharing entirely (Both externally and Internally) on One Drive for Business.

                                      As a company we use SharePoint TeamSites and other collaboration tools for sharing both internally and externally. For a number of reasons it is important that users use the central document/project space for sharing.

                                      We would like to see a feature added where we could disable sharing completely on users one drives

                                      • Share and Sync functionality for folders with Office 365 to PC and Mac

                                        Teams using Office 365 Business Premium should be able to share and sync OneDrive for Business folders over all OS platforms. It should possible to share folders between the users of groups and have these folders synced automatically to Windows 10 PC's and Macs.
                                        This functionality is available for the personal OneDrive version, but Office 365 Business users will want to use their 1TB space which comes with OneDrive for Business.

                                          When you install two ODB accounts in your computer, in file explorer appears OneDrive-Companyname and OneDrive-Companyname (1) making difficult to identify which account you are saving the file. Please allow change the name view, to make easy recognize them
