  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  7. 2 problems with OneDrive

    I ran into 2 problems with latest version of OneDrive.


    1. When OneDrive logins to sync, it immediately pauses and I have to click on Resume syncing to get it to complete. Very annoying.


    2. The OneDrive updater stopped working. When I run OneDrive, the updater checks the server and runs into a problem that I am unable to figure out. Here is the log:


    04/09/2018 19:19:34.559 UpdateDownloader: Initialize()

  8. Re-Color “Upload to OneDrive”

    Love the new update! However, one small oversight I’ve noticed so far. When I open an attachment and want to save it to OneDrive, the document pulls up in OneDrive. The option “Upload to OneDrive” is still in white and is barely visible. Just switching that back to blue would be perfect - thanks!

  11. Improve folder upload in web browser

    Folder upload using browser is great but when there is large amount of files folder upload hangs and you cannot see where it stopped so you can continue.


    1. Either fix this issue, because same folder upload works fine in Google drive (we've tested it), because at this moment we would have to upload smaller portions at time

    2. Provide ability to "merge files" like upload only files that have not been uploaded, so if my uploaded process within folder "example" stopped at file "sample1.txt" when I select to upload folder "example" it should allow me to upload only files that are…

  12. OneDrive Sync Client for Document Libraries - Allow editing when Checkout is Required

    When syncing Document Libraries that have "checkout required" with the OneDrive.exe client, it doesn't allow you to edit the documents in Windows Explorer, according to the below link it's on the product groups backlog. This option was available when using the Groove.exe. We would like our users to just use the OneDrive Sync client and not have to worry about having 2 sync clients.

  13. I hope you have suggestions. Never seen anything like this Google fiasco

    Yes that would be great. I've noticed some stuff it's doing on the phone itself that's contributing.also

  14. Only upload new items in a folder already uploaded

    Can't drag a whole folder and have it upload any new content not already in the folder. It just cancels the whole upload, pretty pointless, i bet msdos could have handled that.

  15. Video shows black screen on Android OneDrive app

    When I play videos one the Android OneDrive app it just shows a black screen. The sound works fine. Everything is up to date and the video is a mp4 (This problem extends to all videos in various formats).
    I'm using a OnePlus 3T (Oreo), but it seems that there are many people with different phones with this problem according to a quick search.

  16. The files don’t automatically get uploaded

    I think there should be an option to let the photos and videos be uploaded each time they are taken. Right now, I should open the OneDrive app and click on the photo to start the upload.

  17. I'm not notified about session expired unless I refresh the page

    I was trying to download a document from OneDrive, but I clicked multiple times but nothing happened. So I refreshed my page and found out my session expired. As a user, I would expect when I click download, it tells me the failure reason rather than failing silently.

  18. Ctrl+P should print the document, not the HTML page!!!

    When I have my document open in OneDrive, I would expect the shortcut Ctrl+P should print the document, just like clicking print button does, not the HTML page that opens the document! I will never want to print the HTML page.

  19. Android file picker "read only"

    When selecting a file from the file picker (screenshot attached) it will be "read only"

    This is not an issue when opening the file directly from the OneDrive Android app and this is also not an issue with other cloud storage that uses the file picker.

  20. onedrive files on demand problems

    some buggy apps cause files on demand to download all files on onedrive to the local drive and there is no way to stop it within the onedrive app. the only solution is to find the buggy app and end task it.
