Allow installation on case-sensitive file systems, especially on Case-sensitive Journaled HFS+
It should be possible to use any valid MacOS drive to store OneDrive synchronization folder. I know, this may cause issues with distinguishing files and folders having equal names regardless chars' cases. But it may be solved by application settings (e.g., if a new file or folder having a name different in symbol cases is created, then it may be not synchronized and shown in special 'attention required' list; and then user can decide, whether he/she would like to merge these folders, delete or rename). Users may accept some compromises to make coming from Windows case-insensitive files system background, but these specific cases will not prevent them from using OneDrive at all. For now this issue makes me really disappointed and forces to look for another solutions, though I already have Office/OneDrive subscription.
Thanks for the suggestion. Just being transparent that we’re unlikely to get to this in the near future.
seriously ?! 2017 and no case sensitive files... you are full of sh...

One more reason to hate you microsoft stupid selfish I only look at my own navel guys. How can you NOT support this?????
Wow, I wish I had seen this before I wasted sooooo many days trying to fix it myself and then spending several hours with the incompetant folks on the ms chat lines (4 agents repeating the same process that each of them had already done) email ticket 'support' is a joke total buffoons. All they had to do is tell us the truth. I would be more respectful of MS if they had done this. Just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I will still subscribe with 365 as it is not necessarily a deal breaker and wait for them to come in to the 21st century. Just so disappointed. I left MS when they created the 'vista' horror show and honestly thought they had learned some lessons, Seems they are just as arrogant now as they were then...

Any news if anything planned about this or do we need to switch to some other cloud service?
Woeful to be given the advice of "you could just reformat your drive as a work around".
Worst customer service ever, and OneDrive is pretty bad as well.
Too bad. I was considering switching to Office365 for better integration with some tools. Not having Onedrive seems to be blocker. Can't switch and can't recommends my clients to d so as quite a few of them in the tech area work with Macs. :(
Just to understand, what are estimates for the far future? ETA
Cause as for the now one of the must-have application inside the o365 is unavailable for the more than 70% of the users in our company. Re-Installing all of them will be a total disaster for everyone.
Your product sucks if you are not able to deliver this... sorry for the equally 'transparent' reply

Let me guess... Windows has no support for Case Sensitive file systems?
That's the reason that Microsoft won't support something which almost all other operating systems support this native for decades?... Makes me have second thoughts about how they store data in the cloud and how "private" is all there...

Really annoying. I got a new computer, spent several days setting it up, and I cannot use OneDrive with Office 365? What a waste of money! I have a terabyte on my machine - you want me to reformat and reinstall? Really? Dropbox and Google have the problem solved. I probably won't renew my Office 365 subscription.te S
I am having the same issue.

+1. This is very short sighted.
Please, I can't use Onedrive on my macbook. :(
21th Century and still not supporting case sensitive FS... did I miss something?
