Add possibility to add and sync files and folders outsider the OneDrive folder
It's just ridiculous that it's not possible to specify files and folders outside the OneDrive folder in the client. Everything needs to be copied in the OneDrive folder in order to upload and sync to OneDrive. I don't want to put all my files and folders on my hard drive in the OneDrive folder. Specify locations and paths in the client would be so much easier and more comfortable and the files would sync immediatly.
I do not understand why you say that you depper integrate OneDrive in Windows 10 when you still force users to use the OneDrive folder in order to sync files. I never put my files in the folder und thus do not use OneDrive if i cannot use my whole hard drive to sync files and folders...
I was going to sign up for a £5.99 a month account but without this feature at the very least for photos, it's pretty useless to me. Surprised there isn't more hate going on for the lack of this feature. Perhaps there is, it is hard to find out because this UserVoice account sucks. The search is rubbish and you have far too many suggestions to make it remotely usable.
This is a basic necessity. Ther eis no point offering us 1TB cloud storage if everything needs to be on one disck in one folder. It is a very bad idea and inconsistent witht eh way that most people work.
I am trying to work out how to use OneDrive and/or Sharepoint to add value to thte way I work and failing because both tell me how I should organise my data.

oh my god that is the most important issue blocking me from opting out if obsolete sugarsync service. they are the only one that let you sync ANY folder. and just imagine how handy it is if you can sync your desktop among multiple PC's. that's what I'm doing, with sugarsync, and I hate it! super slow. I wish a major company starts adding this feature. other folders I wish NOT to move around and keep synced are a couple of folder for some VERY OLD softwares that were litterally written before the whole cloud era! those could use this type of flexibility.
I am so glad you posted this "for me". I am testing OneDrive and Word 2016 on Mac because I find Google docs or Word Online too slow. I am so disappointed and astonished that Microsoft didn't add such a functionality already. Now that Cloud storage and sync has become so popular, who wants to split its folder organization in two or to play with alias, etc. ?
