  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  6. Limit Concurrent Uploads

    The ability to set a limit on the number of concurrent uploads would make uploading larger files so much easier and so so so less painful. With your abysmally slow upload speeds (taken 4 hours to upload 1gb) and constant crashing of the app (Mac OSX keeps signing out/disconnecting from the server if left unattended and/or I try use my computer for other things while its uploading in the background) I have had so many hash fails which is a waste of bandwidth and time.

    Instead of having 6-7 files getting to 90% and then the app crashes, I could…

  7. On-Demand files: invalid ms-dos function

    Before on-demand files was synchronization ok.
    I have junction directory link in OneDrive folder to second hard-drive folder. The files are marked with syncing arrows, but they are not syncing. When I select file and choose "Always keep on this device", it shows "Invalid MS-DOS function" message.

  8. 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.

  10. More granular settings for Files On Demand

    I want to be able to disable files on demand for my personal OneDrive for Business folder, but enabled for all the SharePoints I'm syncing down. This is not possible as of 2018.06.13.

    I'd wish for more granular settings for Files On Demand, on a per SharePoint / OneDrive folder basis.

  11. 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 of…

  12. 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).

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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....

  17. Camera Upload- choose destination folder

    So I really appreciate the camera upload feature. Would it be possible to let users set a destination folder by choice? I like to organize all my photos and it's not easy when I end up with a few thousand in one folder after forgetting to go in for a few months. Right now they just seem to end up somewhere random and I'd like to be more deliberate.
    Thanks and keep up the hard work!

  18. Allow uploads greater than 15GB

    If the user has the capacity, uploads shouldn’t be limited to 15 GB. I can’t store a backup on OneDrive because it’s 20 GB. Google drive doesn’t have that problem; iCloud has a 50 GB limit.

  20. initial sync of large libraries extremely slow

    You need to seriously work on the performance when doing an initial sync of large libraries with many files. I have a photo library with approx. 250 GB worth of photos, and after trying to sync these libraries (<year>,<month>,<description>) for almost two weeks, I had to give up. Your sync engine is just not capable. Went back to DropBox, and no issues at all. Sure, it took some time to do, but no technical issues.

    After researching quite a bit, I can see that I am not the only one with this problem. This is a serious show stopper.

    Other…
