  4. "executable" file flag?

    I have data mixed with scripts and each time I download them back, I have to adjust the executable flag (I tried it with files stemming from an NTFS and EXT4 source, respectively).
    Can you fix it?

  6. We need to be able to download files from OneDrive with their time and date modified not their date downloaded

    To be much use as a backup, it is essential that OD is able to download files from the cloud to our computers with the time and date they had when uploaded. The current system updates to the download time and date, making OD almost useless as an off-site backup solution. Please at least give us the option to do this. At the moment it is only of value as a backup for files created in the last day or two, meaning that another off-site back up is required (eg, an external hard-drive). In hope - despite OD's problems, I…

    When trying to play any video files (.mp4, .wmv) on the onedrive.live.com website, an error message shows up stating "Sorry, there was a problem loading the video.", even though these videos can be played without any issues in the desktop and mobile OneDrive apps.

  10. Changing a user account's name doesn't update the 2 year deletion email alerts

    I had a user that got married. Her primary UPN changed because we use first initial, last name. She has had full access to OneDrive since we made the change nearly two years ago and uses it semi-frequently. Even the User Profile in SharePoint reflects the new name. I left her old user UPN as a secondary Alias in her account so that she will still receive email to her form name/email address. Everything works well. However, she just got an email to her former name/email address from Microsoft stating that her OneDrive account will be delete due to inactivity.…

  11. Don't change my album cover photo after I add new photos

    Sometimes, the cover photo I chose for my album is changed to a random one when I add new photos to the album. I think this is a bug. Please fix it. Thanks.

  12. Action multiple selected items

    When searching for files, the system allows selection of multiple items, but the top menu bar disappears, which means you can select multiple items but cannot action them.

    This is a bug that needs to be fixed.

  14. Bugs onedrive webviewer for videos and powerpoint documents

    1) Onedrive: if a person open a shared link of a video (.mp4) with white background, the webviewer shows the play, pause or stop button in the middle of the video in white color, so it's not possible to see these buttons. White buttons with a black border will be the solution!

    2) Onedrive: if a person open a shared link of a powerpoint document the webviewer don't show the recorded laserpointer.

    3) Onedrive: if a person open a shared link of a powerpoint document the webviewer shows time recorded animations always at beginning of the page and not in…

  15. Videos no longer play in browsers

    Videos uploaded from an Android phone no longer open in browsers (Edge, IE11, Chrome). All my videos play fine using a desktop video player, but when uploaded to OneDrive there's just an error 'sorry, there was a problem loading the video.'

    This might have something to do with video formats, because it only affects videos taken with the Nokia 8 Android phone, where videos I've uploaded previously that worked no longer open in browsers, but videos taken with an old Windows phone (Nokia Lumia 925) still work fine. Both are mp4 though.
    There's a workaround in Chrome, by enabling 'load…

  16. 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.

  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.
