  1. Move shared folders

    Please allow people to move a shared onedrive folder out of the root directory of OneDrive. It's pretty annoying people aren't able to move these folders or files.

    I am a long-time PC user with better-than-average, although not expert, knowledge of how to operate a computer. I operate a Dell desktop for personal use. I also operate a Dell Inspiron 17” laptop for my consulting business. My operating system on both computers is Windows 10 obtained by subscribing to Windows 365 Home. Integrated in Windows 10 is a “cloud storage solution” app called OneDrive. It is “set up when I log into my Microsoft Account with storage available in File Explorer” as described by Microsoft.

    Sounds great so far. I am very interested in “cloud storage” to back…

  7. Lento y caro el servicio premiun

    No me animo a comprar el servicio ya que el gratuito es lento y mas alla de ser carisimo es poco intuitivo en el uso.

  8. Include hours:minutes:seconds in timestamp display

    Please include hours:minutes:seconds in timestamps displayed in the web browser. This is only available in the "classic" version if I click the details link for a folder/file, not available in the latest version even as a Settings option.

    A timezone setting would also be very helpful, for comparing timestamps on my computer to those on the server.

  10. Provide the ability for the admin to set whether to apply the new feature or not advancely.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名): 新しい機能やサービスについて

    Provide the ability for the admin to set whether to apply the new feature or not advancely.
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    ​OneDrive for Business のファイル オンデマンドなど、新しい機能やサービスについて、事前通知もなく突然動作が切り替わると、ユーザーは何か問題が発生したのではないかと思ってしまう。新しい機能については事前に通知をして、有効にするかどうかはユーザーに選択をさせてほしい。

    Currently, we are concerned that the feature or service will be enabled automatically when a new function is available such as "Files On-Demand" in ​OneDrive for Business.

    In order to prevent the unexpected impact or confusion, please provide the ability for the administrator to get a notification and set enable/disable the new feature in advance.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  11. OneDrive should work like any external backup. Automatically backup C-drive w/o duplicating itself on File Explorer adding to storage space.

    OneDrive should work like any external backup. Automatically backup C-drive w/o duplicating itself on File Explorer adding to storage space. If OneDrive does this already, the setting for this is not very intuitive.

  14. Enable sync of system files with special characters in file name

    Enable sync of system files as do Google Sync, Dropbox and others. If OneDrive is to be considered premier league, you must be able to offer a solution whereby we can sync system files without changing file names with special characters or long file names. Actually, this is a deal breaker if it doesn't get fixed.

    Why when I delete a file in One drive it is deleted in my computer. I can not pay, so I need to create spaces in One drive. Actually I do not like how I do to uninstall it? With Google I do not have to worry about these things.

  20. Install an option to set app controls for left-handedness

    This should apply to all apps in general, but since Microsoft is so prominant in the IT world, my idea is targeted towards them. Many of the app controls, particularly settings, and frequently used controls are set up by default on the right side of the app. There should be a feature in the settings, or even while you are setting the app up initially after installing it, which allows you to switch the app's controls to make it easier for lefties to use. There may be only ten percent of us in the world, but we will continue to…
