  1. 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.

  2. 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....

  3. 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…

  5. Allow AD synced users to change language

    Currently, users synchronized with company local AD via Azure AD are not able to change their language in OneDrive or any other places via settings. Users should be able to change that and override the AD language setting, which is usually not used in Active Diretories or is not accurate. More info: http://www.lieben.nu/liebensraum/2015/03/change-office-365-portal-language-for-synced-users/

  8. Add the equivalent of .gitignore

    This request keeps coming up and keeps getting closed so we can no longer vote on it, this is ridiculously counter-productive. Even if the feature is unlikely the entire point of this site is to gauge support for feature requests, by all means respond but don't just close it.

    In short, add the ability to ignore certain files or folders from sync using something like a .onedrive file. I don't want my node modules syncing with ondrive and bogging sync down.

  12. Create 'Dropspace' to request files from none OneDrive User

    The ability to send a link to a none OneDrive user to 'Request' files. We would create an empty file and then send the link to a non OneDrive user to upload to.

  18. Manual "Sync Now" Button

    Add a button on local OneDrive devices (Windows, Mac, Android, etc.) that allows users to force-sync OneDrive immediately instead of waiting for the cloud to auto-sync hours later.

  19. Onedrive is a total piece of garbage programmed by total morons, I'd love to list the countless reasons but I only have so much space to typ

    You arbitrarily change the amount of space people can use, you create duplicate files for no reason other then to waste the limited free space you deal out so people who don't know or look will just think they need to buy more space, not realizing that there are three or more of every single picture in the onedrive. I suggest you either A) totally shut down and stop pretending you know what you're doing, or B) code your s*%t properly, add checks and confirmations for duplicate creation, if the file is a picture and youre confused about which one…

  20. OneDrive app for HP printers.

    It would be good to have a app on HP printers to scan to and print from OneDrive like Google Drive has. This way you can access or add documents directly from the printer.
