    Increase OneDrive for Business file size beyond the current cap of 15 GB/file.

    OneDrive for Business needs to stay competitive.

  2. Please stop automatically creating folders (like attachments, pictures, documents) in my OneDrive.

    It is so annoying, every time i delete the folders, it pops up again. If i need a folder, i will make it myself. This is the only thing that keeps me from making OneDrive my top cloud storage solution.

  3. Allow substituting a drive letter for the OneDrive for business folder(s).

    We have a database that uses drive letters for folders. Using the "subst" command will do just that, substitute a drive letter for the long OneDrive path. However, this creates the folder "System Volume Information" - a hidden, read-only system folder that crashes OneDrive every time! Make OneDrive ignore system files! Allow a drive letter substitution for the long OneDrive path!

  4. Thumbnails not generated in OneDrive folders anymore

    OneDrive on Windows 10 no longer generates file thumbnails in picture folders. I've tried a dozen fixes, so it is directly related to the OneDrive App and Windows 10. Windows 7 is actually working fine with the same files and OneDrive folders. So there is a recent Windows 10 Update that has disabled the ability for Windows 10 to build a successful thumbnail cache. This is happening on multiple machines but only Windows 10 and not Windows 7.

  5. Files On-Demand status icons not working correctly

    The Files On-Demand syncing seems to be working correctly, but the status icons displayed are often inaccurate.

    Most often it will show 'Sync pending' when OneDrive in the notification area says it's 'Up to date', even when every file/folder inside that folder is showing the same status.

    Another instance is the status will show as 'Available on this device', but right-clicking the folder will correctly show a check mark next to 'Always keep on this device' on the right-click menu.

    Lastly, I'm not sure if this is intended, but I set one folder as 'Always keep on this device' and…

  6. CPU usage is very high with 10.14 Mojave beta

    OneDrive app 18.091.0506.0007 with MacOS 10.14 beta 18A326g on MacBook Pro ... I have noticed that the OneDrive app when started on boot pulls significant CPU time as well as associated energy usage (fan runs continuously). This draw continues after OneDrive completes initial sync. If I quite the app and then restart app, CPU and energy usage drops to a couple of percent which is what I observe with macOS 10.3.5 on my iMac.

  7. KFM (Known Folder Move) needs more customer customization.

    I would like to add Favorites, Music, Videos to KFM and also have the option to put Documents in the root of OneDrive versus in a "Documents" folder in OneDrive.

  9. Add Back .txt Text Editor Option

    On OneDrive.com, add back the option to edit text files. Starting around 12/20/17, the option to Open and edit a text file by right clicking disappeared.

    However, it's possible to get back to the editor by using part of the link below.

    https://onedrive.live.com/?v=TextFileEditor

    Please fix this bug as this is a key functionality to edit simple text files.

  11. Group Policy to Add SharePoint Sites

    SilentConfig is all very good, but I'd also like to be able to add SharePoint Online Libraries to appear automatically alongside the user's OneDrive for Business. A policy item that contains a list of URLs to SharePoint Libraries would do the trick. As SharePoint Libraries might be particularly large, it would make sense if such libraries defaulted to "Files on Demand"

    Of course, this should also be added to the OneDrive CSP that everyone is screaming out for!!

  12. Please fix MIcrosoft update bug...

    OneDrive creates a temp file called aria-debugger. It's huge...40 g bytes, and keeps growing, grabbing all the free space on the hard drive.

  14. Sync client / Files On-Demand support for Windows 10 virtual desktops (VDI)

    In 2018 we will begin a 12 month deployment of Windows 10 + Office 365. 45,000 physical devices will be replaced and 15,000 devices will be turned into kiosks accessing virtual desktops. Would like to incorporate OneDrive into the personal data namespace, but you explicitly state there is no support for the sync client (and thus Files On-Demand) for virtual desktops (VDI), and that eliminates OneDrive usage for all since the user experience has to be identical across physical and virtual. If I can't do it for virtual then I can't do it for physical.

    Request explicit statement of support…

  15. implement the feature enabling to restrict internal file share.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■件名 : 内部ユーザー同士の共有を制限したい
    ■内容: OneDrive for Business において、テナント内のユーザー間のファイルの共有を制限したい。社内のユーザー間であっても、安易に共有が行われてしまうことによって漏洩のリスクが高まります。管理者によってい制御ができるよう、テナント内のユーザー同士のファイル共有を制限する機能を要望します。
    -----
    I am thinking of sharing the files among the users of OneDrive for Business's tenant. At this moment, there is a possibility that the data leak might be caused by a simple share even within company user, and therefore I hope the feature to be available that could enable to make a limit on the file share among the users of a tenant so that an admin could execute the restriction for shared files.

  16. Integrate Microsoft's SyncToy with OneDrive

    Microsofts's SyncToy has been a staple app for me in syncing files on my laptop hard drive to an external hard drive. It seems this software could be integrated into OneDrive so that those of us who want 100% certainty that our files saved to OneDrive (in the cloud) are also accessible when we are working offline (from our Laptop\PCs native hard drive).

  17. Duplicates created when opening documents (iOS)

    Offine-avaliable files opened while online and causes the iOS app do display a duplicate file that can not be deleted, opened or changed.

    This happens every time an offline-available document is opened, edited and closed. These files can not be deleted, marked or edited in any way. Only way to remove these duplicates is to reinstall the OneDrive app, it is not solved with deleting cache.

    The original can still be edited but new duplicates are created upon closing/uploading the changes. These duplicates only exist on the device (does not appear in sharepoint or other devices) and i suspect these…

  18. Replace with DropBox

    Purchase Dropbox. Fire everyone involved with OneDrive. Replace OneDrive with DropBox.

    OneDrive is a total disaster. I spend 3 hours a week reloading OneDrive on the 40 computers I manage. I do just about nothing else except look at each computer to see if OneDrive is running. WE TRUSTED our company to Microsoft. We are screwed.

    We lost data with OneDrive. We lost time with OneDrive....

  20. Allow family members to add files to a shared family folder structure

    The notion of a Family doesn't properly exist. Each family member (having their own OneDrive account) should be able to add files and folders to a common shared family folder structure. So you have family pictures, family documents, etc. Now, as main account holder, I share the family pictures, but my wife can't add the pictures she made during our holiday into the shared folder. If she does that, they are only visible to her and not to me / the rest of the family.

    Creating and supporting a true Family concept would enable huge marketing options as well as…
