  2. Managing deleted One Drive (Sharepoint Document) files

    We have multiple users connected one SharePoint site and we use this sites to share documents. Due to our operational requirements we need to keep our files in the desktop PC. Therefore all the users in the organization we keep our files in the PC using OneDrive client.

    The issue is when a file get deleted from one end its effecting all other users in the network by moving all the deleted files to their desktop recycle bin. Which creates huge space of deleted files and make all the users to clean their recycle bin quite often. (For us avg…

  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!

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

  7. Real time file synchronization failure

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    同期フォルダーの更新の反映について

    Real time file synchronization failure
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    同期フォルダーの更新の反映がなかなかされず、1つ前のバージョンのファイルが開けてしまい、閉じると最新のバージョンに更新されることが頻繁に起きます。
    共同で編集する際に混乱を招くため、同期フォルダーの更新は即時され、かつ更新前のデータを開けない動作になるよう希望いたします。

    Often times, because real time synchronization fails, even after the updates are made to the files, older version file would open up, and it gets updated only once older version is closed.

    As this is something causing users confusion as they are working on collaborative editing, it is nice to see precise real time synchronization and prevent older version of the files gets opened up as well.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  8. 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!!

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. Allow a folder to be deleted with files inside of it

    It is exhausting trying to delete large folders within OneDrive. Since there are multiple folders within folders within folders, I have spent hours trying to delete one large folder from my OneDrive account. Due to the feature that does not allow me to delete a folder until that folder is empty, I have to manually go through and delete everything within every folder within every folder within every folder before I can delete my entire folder. This is a huge waste of time. I would like there to be the option like there is on other applications - desktop files,…

  13. Make it possible to check for the virus infection during file uploading.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):ファイルのアップロード完了前にウイルス感染がないかを確認する動作にしてほしい

    Make it possible to check for the virus infection during file uploading.

    ■Description(内容):
    EICAR ファイルによる検証の結果、ウイルスに感染したファイルをアップロードしようとすると、OneDrive for Business を含む SharePoint Online 上へのアップロードが完了し、その後、ファイルがスキャンされて、ウイルスを含むと判定されるとダウンロードや共有ができなくなる動作であると考えられることを確認した。
    ウイルスがクラウド上にアップロード可能ということについて問題があると考えており、アップロード後、スキャンされてウイルスと判定されるまでのわずかな間でも同期やダウンロードなどができる可能性があることはセキュリティ上のリスクである。
    このため、ファイルのアップロード時にファイルをスキャンし、ウイルスに感染している場合にはアップロード自体をブロックする動作としてほしい。

    As a result of EICAR file verification, once uploading to OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online is completed tentatively in case if you try to upload a virus-infected file. Then the files are scanning and when the file is defective, you cannot download and share the files eventually.

    However, I believe there is the problem that the infected files can be uploaded to the cloud once. It is a security risk concerns…

  14. 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).

  15. OneDrive Delay Logoff During Sync

    In Educational Labs and VDI, it would be beneficial to be able to hold/hang the logoff process while OneDrive finishes syncing.

    In both scenarios, users can logon with their employee/student account, and we can make OneDrive available to them via GPO. However, if a user generates a large amount of files/data and then logs off, the sync stops. This could be problematic for several reasons:

    1) It would be detrimental because in many Lab/VDI environments, the user profile is volatile and data would be lost.

    2) Even in a less volatile environments, the user might want to save the files…

    Currently, I am concerned that the users have a difficulty in changing the language settings due to they cannot understand other than their native languages in which set by tenant unit. So that, I hope the feature will be improved that allows the admin to individually select the language setting of OneDrive for Business in case of adding users.

  17. Local Disk Storage Limits

    Save our users from themselves.

    We desperately need a solution to limit how much data is synced to the local disk by the OneDrive Sync Client. In an Enterprise scenario, where it's beneficial to allow large amounts of storage in the cloud, there is often not enough local storage to accommodate a user's full data store. Selective sync doesn't satisfy organizational concerns about using up local disk space. Even files-on-demand is leaving a lot of trepidation at the management level. Users will typically just choose to sync everything without thinking of the consequences.

    I propose an enforceable policy (GPO or…

  18. Implement the function/option to hide the [+] icon which displayed on the left side screen of OneDrive for Business.

    I am aware that each user can create an Office 365 group by clicking the [+] icon which appears on the left side screen of OneDrive for Business. To prevent this, I carried out cmdlets to control from the Microsoft Planner, therefore Microsoft Teams also became unusable at the same time.

    Then I have been changing the settings to activate Teams, however, each user is still able to create Office 365 groups from their own OneDrive for Business screen.
    For the ease of management, I hope the feature will be implemented enables controlling to hide the [+] icon (to create…

  19. To be able to schedule syncing time.

    To be able to schedule syncing time.
    Currently, I can stop syncing for few hours. But, I have to do it daily.
    There must be an option where I can schedule “stop sync”.
    Example: Do not Sync from 6PM to 10AM daily.
    I don’t want my home wifi to consume bandwidth.
