  2. OneDrive application should ask to select folders to sync during account sign in setup before syncing begins

    When signing in to OneDrive desktop application for the first time please give option of what folders you would like to sync instead of without asking just syncing everything to my PC. This is very frustrating as I have to quickly stop syncing all folders and delete all the folders I do not want to see on my PC. It would be so much cleaner if you would just simply ask first during the app sign in process. Also when an account is unlinked and linked again OneDrive should ask what folders you want to see on your PC before…

  4. Make offline/sync folder settings accessible in onedrive.com or other places (besides the desktop icon)

    For numerous reasons (including mine of having to disconnect OneDrive on my PC due to space constraints), there should be a way to check the offline/sync folders in addition to the desktop icon. To have only one option for changing those settings is highly problematic. Please consider adding this option in onedrive.com or in File Explorer or somewhere.
    Thank you.

  5. Allow Settings to be accessed when syncing is paused

    Make Settings available not only when syncing is happening. I am trying to save space on my computer and uncheck folders, but I have to have the files getting synced while I change that. Inane!

  6. Add color options to SysTray icons or one with a menu of accounts

    When you have multiple accounts, it is very hard to know which one is which. It would be very nice to have the SysTray icons' color selectable. I have four accounts, so four icons. If you reorder them they don't "stick". So it is hard to use the icons for shortcuts.

    An alternative would be to have only one icon and a menu that lists each account. If you click the account it opens the local folder. Something to make it easier for those of us with multiple corporate accounts, personal accounts, etc.

  7. storage

    Soy usuario desde note3 de samsung galaxy.

    No respetaron el tamaño del almacenamiento cuando cambie a note 8. Y estoy por perderlo.

    Si la vigencia de la oferta fue de 2 años terminarla por mejorar equipo no se me hace justo.

    Debieron respetarlo. Máxime que se compró en la máquina de escritorio Office 2016 profesional que no tiene almacenamiento en nube.

  8. OneDrive on Kindle Fire HD 8

    I use OneDrive a lot especially through my Apple devices and recently I got a new Kindle Fire HD 8 only to learn they don't support OneDrive or any Word programs linked to OneDrive. I'm a writer and it's important to me that I can write as much as I read on my Kindle so if there could be a way to provide those apps for the Kindle Fire that would be great.

  9. Please no filesize limits anymore

    Please get rid of the 20GB filesize limit for consumer customers if there is no technical reason for that.
    We are now at 1TB of free storage for Office365 customers, why we still have a filesize limit?
    (reason: I want to backup my virtual machine images, VMware)

  12. Copying file from a network shared folder into my OneDrive folder causes file to be directly uploaded on OneDrive (extremely slowly).

    Hello,

    When I copy a file from a computer in my network to my OneDrive folder (located on 'E:\OneDrive\', it ages ages to copy the file, because the file is directly uploaded to the internet instead of copying it locally first and then syncing it in the background.

    This has become quite annoying causing me to copy files into another folder first, and then into my OneDrive folder.

    Please look into a solution for this Microsoft Devs.

  13. Create a two Factor Authentication for your OneDrive. This way, someone using your computer would need your phone to access your OneDrive.

    I have the same problem others have. I have multiple people using my PC at work and at home, and I have no privacy with my OneDrive files. Anyone using my PC can look at my private files on OneDrive. What if you had the option to turn on Two Factor Authentication on OneDrive? This way if you wanted to turn it on, whoever tries to access your OneDrive files, would need your phone... or access to your Microsoft Authenticator app. This would solve the problem with password protected file requests that I see many people asking for. It would…

  14. Why can't you tell what kind of file you're looking at on Onedrive.

    So when you look at a file in Windows Explorer, It contains the icon representing what kind of file you're looking at. If all the files have the same icon, you do not have a visual as to what kind of file you're looking at. For example, is it a word file, an excel file, a PDF file, etc. I noticed when looking at onedrive in Windows Explorer or File Explorer, that all the files look the same. Not to mention, Why can't you change the folder Icon to an Icon you would like to use, Similiar as you can…

  18. Allow OneDrive to sync files of any size.

    Syncing a file, as long as uploading it keeps within the personal OneDrive size limit, should, in my point of view, certainly be possible.

    Currently I am stuck with a image of a virtual machine of around 25gb, which I wanted to share between my PC an laptop using OneDrive. Sadly this is thus not possible.

  19. Bring back the 15GB free online storage in OneDrive

    Google Drive offers 15GB while MEGA offers 50 frickin' gigabytes for free users! 5GB is laughable especially for a cloud company like Microsoft.
