  1. make one drive useable

    I sent feedback via Office 365 as well since I have added storage through my Office 365 subscription. This is an issue I ran into while collaborating with a consultant.

    Fix OneDrive to make it useable in real life, not in a world with DOS file names!

    Basically, a terabyte of storage is unusable to me, because it will not sync reliably. Files with filenames that are too long and files with certain characters in their name (%, &, _, | ) have to be renamed to eliminate characters that ICloud, Dropbox, Box, and Amazon can all manage! This is…

  2. Look into stability issues

    Or perhaps the blackberry keyone specifically. The app crashes/freezes almost every time I use it, particularly when multi-tasking / switching between apps

  5. File name is entire path when saving as in Onedrive folder

    In some applications like powershell and acrobat, when you click save as and it's looking in onedrive by default, it will write the filename as the entire path.

    It will still save in powershell but acrobat gives an error that the file name is too long. I'm not sure what other applications are affected

  8. Can't get onedrive to reverse sync.

    Have shared a onedrive 'Clients' folder with a colleague. This colleague makes changes in the folder, and I can't see any changes on my end. His end is saving it fine. I was the original creator of the folder and the one to 'share' the folder. Anyone know how to fix?

  10. search function bug...

    Appears to be a "search" function bug for pc (WIN 10 - Chrome, Firefox & Internet Explorer)

    Within OneDrive, we all know there is currently a "search everything" option.

    - As the Admin: I type in the details of my desired search and press "enter". The optional files containing the contents of my search in the files/file names are populated. When I click on one of the files, a new tab opens stating "This item might not exist or is no longer available". Obviously a bug, because the file does in fact exist. How do we know the file exists?…

  11. Ability to transfer audio/music from disc to Chromecast audio

    OneDrive allows you to transfer images (photos and videos and music) to a Chromecast (TV plug). Google also has a Chromecast Audio (a plug for speakers). Please add support for transferring audio/music from my drive to Chromecast audio (on my speakers). This way, from the cloud I can play on a system that plays music, podcasts, or audiobooks. Thank you.

  12. Make photo upload and management better than Google photo

    OneDrive photo upload simply does not work. It is not auto as I have to click to get it to start. Once I switch apps too work on other things, upload stops. It takes a long time to upload, won't play photos well on Chromecast, just too much problems with it.

    To make it worse, I tried to make a photo book with Shutterfly, it won't upload photos from OneDrive.

  16. Multiple Xbox Game Clips Only Partially Transfer

    So I talked to a few reps earlier today & they advised that I was contacting "Microsoft Office" support rather than OneDrive support but the website said it was OneDrive support, I then told them that I had issues with transferring clips from Xbox to OneDrive & there was no error code or visible glitch. I told Doug & Kim & whoever else I talked to that I know for a fact that because of the "proof" & the visual evidence that I witnessed is that the Upload Queue clearly transferred the clips, but when I checked them on the…

  17. When I unlinked and relinked a PC that was having sync issues, colleagues say I mass deleted items that were "available when online" to me

    My PC was failing to sync new changes in OneDrive for Business. I would save changes to a file locally, then the file's status icon would show "sync pending" but in the OneDrive tray icon it would just say "processing changes..." but didn't list any actual files. When this continued for over an hour, I searched for a resolution and found the suggestion of unlinking and relinking the PC with the problem, so I tried that. When I re-linked it, I chose to use the existing local folder location hoping it wouldn't need to re-download 45GB of files. It seemed…

  18. Fix bug in 17.005.0107.0008 that causes it to fail on multiple file renames

    If I perform multiple file renames with the onedrive client closed, when I open the client it fails to sync successfully - it processes indefininately, and sometimes shows "up to date" for a few seconds, then resumes processing -- but never achieves sync.

    If I remove the files which were renamed the sync stabilizies.

    If I then place the renamed files back into the onedrive folder it syncs and stabilizes -- but of course at this point it is no longer a series of renames but instead is a bunch of regular saves following a bunch of corresponding deletes.

    I…

  19. Respect the protected areas on iPhone X

    You app doesn’t respect the protected areas on the iPhone X layout. The “Upload” option is behind the iPhone X “swipe up” area on the bottom of the screen. Similarly, the upload status is behind the time to the left of the iPhone X notch.

  20. Fix continuously restarting on Windows 10

    On my two Windows 10 Pro computers, the OneDrive application continually terminates and then restarts. Each time it restarts, it puts a ghost image in the taskbar area. When I come back to my computer after a while, I have a whole row of these images in the taskbar.

    Can we get this fixed? I am not the only one, based on the forum.

    One of these computers is a fresh, clean install of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update that I did 2 weeks ago, and the other computer is my Surface Pro 4 that was upgraded in place…
