  1. enable adding a photo to another album from the "Albums" view

    When I'm browsing the photos in album A, and see one that would also be good for album B, I'd like to add it to B. However, there is no "Add to album" button. There is one if I'm using the "Files" view, and there is one if I'm using the "All Photos" view, but not while I'm using the "Albums" view. This is frustrating because in order to add the photo to album B, I have to back out of the "Albums" view and go into either the "Files" view or the "All Photos" view, navigate to that one…

  2. OneDrive Files On-Demand bug

    I've noticed a bug on multiple instances in our environment. Syncing with a SharePoint site, using OneDrive build 18.091.0506.0007 and running on Windows 10 Enterprise b1709 and b1802.

    With Files On-Demand enabled, and when navigating to any folder in the site, it automatically downloads the files in that folder even though none were set to 'Always Keep on this Device'. Also, when right clicking these files and clicking 'Free Up Space', it switches back to the cloud (online only) and one second later, re-downloads them.

    Tested on a newly imaged machine with no other software on it. Windows Defender isn't…

    The onedrive app is draining too much battery on my S8+. it needs to cool out, it keeps ringing up with notifications: "Doing backup of your photos" even if I haven't taken any pictures.

  9. Newly create files in OneDrive folders out of reach when on metered connection

    When I am on a metered connection, OneDrive pauses syncing, which is great in principle. One consequence of this, however, is that I can no longer new folders and files created by office applications in OneDrive folder. For example, if I create a new file or folder in Word or Excel, I cannot even find it with the File Explorer! The only way I can access it, for example to attach it to an e-mail, is through the office application concerned and by saving it in another spot, say, the desktop.
    This is a very annoying bug that makes OneDrive…

  10. OneDrive For Business does not sync files larger than 1 GB

    Problem-1 is as follow:
    1. OneDrive does not sync files larger than 3 GB
    2. OneDrive does not always sync files between 1.5 and 3 GB. 10-20% goes through and 80-90% goes in circle. Circle means it sync the file until the end, and then it start all over again and it sync the same file again and again and again…..
    3. OneDrive does not sync always files between 1 and 1.5 GB. 50% goes through and 50% goes in circle. Circle means it sync the file until the end, and then it start all over again and it sync…

  11. Too much drain on pc.

    During Sync my laptop is virtually unusable due to the amount of resources required by OneDrive to do it's job. I am unable to open new tabs or watch videos while sync is happening.
    It would be great if it could actually run while I work.

  12. Annoying bugs in Microsoft products

    At the outset I regret to inform that the recent Microsoft products , let it be Windows OS, Office 365 , Skype and many other tools which I use for my daily work is full of BUGS. MS software has pathetic quality now a days. I will have to write a book instead of this post to list the MS bugs which I notice in my day to day work.

    The latest one being synchronisation bugs in the much hyped OneDrive. My taskbar status icon tells me that "All files are in sync". However, when I open the sync folder…

  14. Onedrive client: one of the worst pieces of software form microsoft i have ever seen

    Th onedrive client is like a formula 1 (server side) with the tyres of a bike.
    I have the client costantly crash 5/10 times a day.
    Cannot examine log files. Are not in plain text. Why did you choose to use a so unuseful way to log activities ?
    The client always crash when i add a lot of files to a synced folder.
    i had to upload a subdirectory to onedrive server via webdav because the client could not accomplish this result.
    Please restart this crayy software form scratch and build something useful for your users.
    Btw i have…

  15. Onedrive is making problem with AutoCAD Xref system when the files cannot sync up to cloud

    I use Onedrive with my team for "AutoCAD Xref system" and many time Onedrive stuck with sync problem.
    it always shows "looking for change" or "processing change".

    what I can do is only "unlink this PC and relink it again"

    After that the files are flooded to every people pc with the suffix like "-pc name" which cause the problem with AutoCAD Xref because we have to check in every single file "which file from which PC" is the most current one that we have to remove suffix "-pc name" and replace it back to our Xref system.

    It takes…

  17. Pause Sync Bug

    If you have a large number of files to sync, but want to pause it, it gets stuck on looking for changes.

    I have to click settings to make the app crash and then wait for it to login then pause syncing again.

  18. Photo previews not working when disabling "Files On-Demand" option

    Recently after a large update, Onedrive apparently enabled a new feature "Files On-Demand". After I disabled this option, photo previews were not loading anymore in Windows 10 file explorer (either as thumbnails or in the preview pane). Clearing the thumbnail cache with disk cleanup did not solve the problem. Enabling the File On-Demand option again solved the preview problem.
    However, I really want to have all my file stored locally, so this is not a solution for me.
