  1. Add 1 tb storage option to OneDrive In addition to office 365

    There should be an option to purchase additional storage on onedrive. I have a office 365 account and would like the option to purchase 500gb or 1tb for a fee per month, just like on onedrive for business

    Thank you for the suggestion, Louis! We are happy to let you know that Office 365 (starting at $6.95 per month in the US) will soon feature unlimited storage.

    You can read the announcement here:

    And if you are on Office 365 subscriber, you can sign up to be among the first to get an increase in storage space here:

    Let us know if you have any more questions. Thanks.

  2. Bring parity to OneDrive and OneDrive for Business Clients

    Create -one- client that can handle multiple accounts for both OneDrive and OneDrive for Business. Instead of having two clients that can only handle one account for OneDrive and one for OneDrive for Business build one client for all your accounts with feature parity (selective sync, sync shared, etc. etc.) I have one consumer OneDrive and several Office365 OneDrive for Business Accounts but there is no option to connect all accounts and sync locally.

    This one slipped through the cracks – but we delivered a converged sync client last December! While we don’t have 100% feature parity, many of the most critically asked for features are available – including the ability to do Selective Sync, support removable media, sync files up to 10 GB in size (up from 2 GB), use less disk space and do it all more reliably and quickly than before. Feel free to create new suggestions (or upvote existing ones) for the next set of features you’d like to see.

  3. Get a sharing link from Windows Explorer without visiting website

    Dropbox doesn't force you to go to a website to get an link to share. It doesn't even require you to wait for the file to finish uploading before allowing you to copy a link. Please provide this functionality in the desktop context menu.

  4. Allow the REAL OneDrive team to take over this feedback portal.

    This UserVoice portal was started by a concerned fan of OneDrive who wants OneDrive to be the best it can, but there were no feedback outlets to be found. Please upvote this idea so that the OneDrive team takes notice and starts to hear the feedback of it's fans and users.

  6. Return OneDrive to the way that it was pre Windows 8.1

    The following problems were documented on Microsoft's community page here: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/files/i-am-having-multiple-problems-with-skydrive-in/3194a7ee-bef6-4c41-b199-0bb1a4da6e2e

    I never received a solution:

    I can't wrap my head around SkyDrive in Windows 8.1. These are the problems that I am having:
    1.I select a folder, and then select online only. The Available Offline disappears. I come back 5 minutes later, and the folder once again says "Available Offline."

    2.When you select online only, after a folder was available offline, you should see some status as to what is happening. i.e. these 650 files are being deleted.

    3.The SkyDrive App says "Downloading 6 items..." in the upper right…

  7. Tag / keyword search on mobile

    for the time beeing it's not possible to search for files ( keywords, metatags ) via mobile onedrive apps ( Iphone / Ipad )
    That means my thousands of pictures in onedrive are like in a messy shoebox. Only on my PC i can search in Onedrive

  8. Virtual folders for photo albums

    Lots of photo organisation programs and photo sharing websites conceptualise albums as sort of virtual folders whereby the same photo in your library can appear in multiple albums (virtual folders) without duplication of the photo. I find this very useful.

    Photo organisation in OneDrive is limited to regular folders, and therefore you have to duplicate photos if you want them to appear in multiple albums (album in this sense being just a regular folder with photo viewing options).

    Please enable us to create virtual folder type albums.

  9. Improve speed of syncing files

    On both Mac OSX Mavericks and Windows 7, OneDrive syncs so impossibly slow that it is a joke. It takes hours for megabytes to move up, and quite often OneDrive just crashes over and over, preventing syncing even more. On OSX, OneDrive constantly "resets", asking me to log in and pick the directory again, and on Windows 7, the service keeps restarting over and over, with little progress.

    boom! it's done  ·  Angus Logan responded

    Hi, we are aware of a small number of customers who are having issues uploading photos from Windows Phone. The work around is to sideload your photos to your OneDrive through your PC or manually upload them through the app. This is not a widespread issue and we are working on resolving it.

    thanks Angus

  11. Fix Skydrive.exe perpetual crash/restart Windows 8.1 issue

    Pick a link, any link: http://www.bing.com/search?q=skydrive.exe+crashing+%22windows+8.1%22&src=IE-SearchBox&FORM=IE11SR

    I'm seeing this issue on multiple Win 8.1 boxes. No idea what's causing it or how to fix it. I ran the troubleshooter today and it's still running after nearly an hour. Leaving it overnight.

    We need more details on this one, once can get in touch with us we can take it from there. This could be more than one issue.

  12. improve performance to watch videos uploaded to onedrive. Features like buffering need to be performed at onedrive ASAP

    I love the automatic sync of my videos from Windows Phone to onedrive, but when I try to watch those videos from onedrive.com or via onedrive windows 8 app, the performance to watch video is terrible. There is no buffering for video. It is almost unusable this functionality nowadays.
