Desktop View only option
I like to know where are my files, and are they still on same location..
When you stuck with onedrive desktop app, like "checking for changes" and take for few days to sync.. and you don't know how to stop it, what is changed etc.. because in moste case you did something simple (like moving folder to another location) and it take for few days to "check for chages" - for this, at last let us know the progress of checking... or enable it to do something manually to help this app with problem.
Or any other problem when you don't know "what is happening" and you don't know "are you going to lose your data", or "does this problem will ever finish, and what if don't".
So, my idea is enable "View Only" option. It would mean that you can only view files in specific folder, like excel, word, but you cant open that excel/word file, because it's "view only".
In this way, onedrive desktop app will know that it doesn't need to check sync status or what is happening to folder and all files in it!
And me, as user, will know that my files are safe on onedrive and I will not change it by mistake - ideal for archiving files, when you know you will not use it in near future.
The other benefit:
- onedrive app when stuck, never finish with sync and you don't know what to do, at last ou know that some of your data are safe!.
