  1. Screenshot

    OneDrive application for Windows 10 saves screenshots (PrntScrn) to a localized directory, even though I have chosen english as display language in Windows.
    In my case (Norwegian) it creates a folder "\Bilder\Skjermbilder" instead of my preffered "\Pictures\Screenshots".

  4. Make it get along better with git

    Currently if you git clone into a OneDrive directory the OneDrive Sync Client will usually crash. This isn't a big problem because it restarts.

    A worse problem is that while sending my PC (Windows 8.1) into Sleep, OneDrive frequently corrupts the last .git repo I was using, such that git loses the concept of the HEAD ref, and all files appear in git status as NEW.

    Have experienced this on multiple PCs. Surely some of your internal developers are experiencing similar problems with OneDrive + git? :)

  10. Onedrive currently has a bug where you are unable to sign in, or disconnect onedrive leaving you stuck without your files syncing.

    OneDrive Icon is grey, no way to disconnect as the "disconnect" button is grey, no way to sign in.

    Please allow us to Uninstall onedrive, mail, and all other first party apps so that we can reset them. I've had bugs like this with every single one.

    This happened after switching from a Microsoft account to a local account and then back again. This was done to fix the account bug in the Mail app introduced by the latest update.

    Tried multiple answers but nothing has worked.
    I tried deleting onedrive folder, restarting onedrive, resetting onedrive.
    Looks like the only…

  12. Unable to sign into OneDrive when using Fingerprint (Windows Hello) in Windows 10

    I just noticed an odd behavior in the OneDrive app. I am using Windows 10 Pro (Build 10240) and all my drivers are installed properly on my HP Laptop. Due to time restrains, I was not able to set up Windows Hello before to start using my fingerprints to log onto Windows instead of using a password or pin.
    Well, today I went through the process of setting up Windows Hello and it worked like a charm! except that I noticed that my OneDrive folder was not being updated. After taking a closer look I noticed I wasn't signed in.…

  13. I have multiple devices: the files are not synchronising properly

    Sometimes (with no reason) on some devices I need to log in / select OneDrive folder again and than it merges the files, i.e., the files I have deleted on one device will appear again in the folder(s). Very annoying! (Note: no time-zone differences and all clocks are fine!)

  15. Not to disturb the user with an unreal sync problem

    Almost every startup of OneDrive I get an error notification "One or more file needs your intervention" for nothing.

  16. OneDrive with Bitlocker

    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.

  18. Online recycle bin empty crashes browser

    On onedrive.live.com, if you empty a large recycle bin (10,000 items or more) the browser tries to select them all. Doing so crashed my browser the first time, and took 30mins the second time, before even actioning the delete.

  19. improve video streaming

    I have noticed for a while now that video streaming via my OneDrive is, to put it mildly, horrible. Not just my account but also the experience on other family accounts too. Videos I have recorded with my Windows Phone are uploaded and shared to family. Either via the web, the onedrive app on mobile devices and my Xbox One, there is constant buffering. This experience is the same on difference types of quality connections (100/15 residential & 50/12 commercial)

  20. Sort bugs post windows 10

    I've now removed all my data from onedrive (hopefully temporarily), as it doesn't sync.

    Started noticing issues post windows 10, so put it down to bugs in the new system. Now at work on 7Enterprise, and despite onedrive folder now only having a single of my folders in it, the onedrive running on my work PC is still syncing after 3 hours despite only needing to delete all the folders to echo the deletion I made online yesterday.

    I can't trust a system that never finished syncing, a slow system would irritate me. But this is beyond that.
