  1. Fix incorrect calculation of remaining free space when using Symbolic Links

    Creating a SymLink in the local OneDrive folder to another drive may incorrectly disable the "OK" button in the selective folder sync dialog. Reason: the calculated remaining free space on the local drive (used for the OneDrive folder) is incorrect.

    Example:
    Drive C (size 200 GB, 150 GB free) contains the OneDrive folder which contains a Symbolic Link to D:\syncme
    Drive D (size 1000 GB) contains 300 GB content in D:\syncme
    => The remaining free space on C is being calculated as -150 GB (or less), i.e. the OK button cannot be selected, even though there is still free space…

  2. Rollback NTFS only change. Allow ReFS.

    Onedrive client stopped supporting other filesystems (incl ReFS) except NTFS and HFS+ (mac client). This was done without notifying end users.

    An UserVoice was already created for this (Allow OneDrive folder to be on a Storage Space (ReFS File System)), but a Microsoft employee simply rejected it without justifying the sudden change.

    @Douglas Pearce: Dont reject this uservoice without giving justification. The link you provided in the previous uservoice doesnt explain why Onedrive for Mac works in HFS+ or that Onedrive for business (but same client) can still be synced to ReFS.

  3. Remove function that open in office applications when offline as it is not possible. (iOS)

    One way to work with office files like excel, word etc on iOS is to choose open in another app and then save it locally for editing. Another option is to open the file in the application before you loose the connection, but that just introduces a whole lot of other problems when the office application crashes and you risk loosing your work.

    When selecting an offline-available office-file while offline, it opens the appropriate office application. The office application then tells me that I have to be online to open it, even just to view. This is confusing and causes…

  7. Download shared folder from OneDrive without logging in?!

    Based on my topic right here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficeonedrivefb-msowinother/download-media-folder-from-onedrive-without/3658c926-f9ae-4bb7-a7dc-1da68f26b2fb?auth=1

    Why can I download 1 folder without logging-in and 1 requires me to log-in? Why do you even have to login if someone shared something and you simply want to download it? Why make it so complicated??

  9. File name location details

    I have collection of more than 10 thousands files. Often times I forget their location. I can search for a keyword and often find the file. But I don't know which folder it resides. To find this, I click the file details, it has "file name", "modified", "size" and "location". The "location" value is different from the "file name" value, however, location is neither show the full path not it is a link to the folder where the file resides. Location is obviously is just the "folder name", not the full path. Please make it useful.

  10. Allow Japanese characters to be synced..!

    It is essential that you allow Japanese characters to be synced with OneDrive.
    I have some programs which save their data to my documents folder, which I keep synced with OneDrive.
    But OneDrive cannot sync those folders because they contain Japanese characters, and I simply get a message, telling me to rename those folders (which is of course impossible, as they are working folders for programs).
    I have waited patiently for a long time, for this serious bug to be fixed, but as it has not, I am now posting this bug report.
    I have tried to make copies of…

  15. Share links dangerously default to view and edit

    File sharing currently defaults to creating a link with both view AND edit permissions. This link is retained, without any indication to the user, even when the user deselects the allow edit permissions box.

    This is a VERY dangerous security flaw because some search engines are capable of discovering these links by brute force. I had one of my excel files completely nuked by an anonymous rando that had found the view+edit link that I never knew had been created (even though I only ever explicitly shared a view-only link for the file). They nuked the file by reverting it…

  17. Add Support for Commas (,) in File & Folder Names (Currently replaced with Carets (^J))

    Currently, file & folder names containing commas (,) are auto-replaced with carets (^ or ^J) despite the fact commas are not listed as unsupported special characters.

    Please add support for commas in file & folder names.

  18. Photos taken in Burst Mode - iOS Camera Upload Bug

    Hi there!

    I have problem with uploading photos that I took in Burst Mode (continuous mode) on my iPhone 5s. Despite the fact, that automatic camera upload mode is ON, OneDrive iOS app uploads only some of them.

    For example: I take 10 photos in Burst Mode. OneDrive app uploads only one of them.

    How to fix the app to upload all of them ?

  19. Bitlocker and OneDrive

    OneDrive should be able to recognize that the OneDrive-folder is on a directory which is protected by Bitlocker. If you start the computer and OneDrive can't open the folder because it is still locked, OneDrive should ask to unlock this drive first before ask you to reallocate the folder.

  20. New Version - more maturity

    This software needs some urgent updates since the installation pack Office 365 Business didn't install OneDrive on Mac and the credentials used on Word, Excel, PPTm Outlook are not valid into OneDrive. The user must find tech docs spending hours and proceed some techs steeps in order to get logged in. It spends too much time and energy and must be fixed due there is no reason to have the same credentials integrated into all Office 365 apps. Also, I don't understand the reason to keep OneDrive out of 1.3G pack downloaded during installation on Mac. Also, the credential issue…
