Show detailed synced status (speed, time, files...)
We ar efrustrated by endless processing changes and never know what is doing. Show us what OneDrive is doung:
- updating files xxx of xxxx
- time to coplete cca xx seconds/minutes
- uploading at xxkb/s
- files remaining
- files that is curently in sync
Thanks for the feedback. We recently began rolling out our new activity center which shows the files that are sync’ing, have recently sync’d, and more. There’s more to do so please create individual requests for features you’d like to see in upcoming releases.
Hopefully this is something seriously being looked at as in Windows 10 it is incredibly unhelpful not knowing if a sync is at 5% or 95%. Between this and the lack of placeholders my time with Windows 10 is at an end and I will be rolling back to Win 8.1. I appreciate the complexity of merging all the OneDrive backend setup but if these features are not added to OneDrive by years end I will begin looking at other cloud solutions.
When uploading large files via Windows it should be possible to show the actual progress. eg. 1,5 of 3 GB uploaded,
Yes and please remove "Processing changes"..... either tell me where and what's processing so I can know if I can do something about it or just... don't process my changes; I have a very large OneDrive and it takes about 2 days to "Process changes" EVERY TIME I boot my PC... And then any folder that I've worked on while "processing changes" gets a bunch of duplicate files with my PC's name (even though I only use OneDrive on this PC and nowhere else)
Dropbox doesn't have the same problem
Sync status to show which files are being Sync'd and % complete

I agree, I have also found that sync issues of a file completely stops syncing of other files, this is unacceptable and happens often whenver I use word or when I create a pdf from said word file. In order to fix this issue I often have to resave said word file or simply remove the pdf until syncing completes and then add it to the directory again. I have never had this issue with google drive or Dropbox

I came onto the feedback forum to say this, I am currently migrating from dropbox to Onedrive & at roughly 65GB of data I have no idea which one of the multitude of folders it is currently syncing, only that it has 26, 484 files to go!
An option to throttle the bandwidth used would be a big plus as well. I only have a 2Mbps upload on my line & without using gpedit to limit onedrive, the internet becomes unusable on anything else (my phone will not even sync emails). Having to amend the settings in the aforementioned gpedit & restart every morning & night gets tedious.
Dropbox manged this through the settings no problem,

I can only dedicate 3 votes to this? :( This needs to be done ASAP! It's been like this for years! For the moment, you can check the OneDrive metro app, it gives different details. Between the icon by the time / date and the metro app, you can see how many files are left, how much data (mb/gb) has been uploaded, and what files are being uploaded ATM. But please update it to show is this information! It's VERY useful!
This is similar to #6948209, but a bit more information made available to user. It would be good to know more details such as what the upload speed is, and the file that is currently syncing. At the moment it is possible to determine how much has been uploaded of the total amount remaining to be transferd, how many files are left, and how much times remains, but extra details such as upload speed would let me know there's problems, and it's good to know what file(s) are holding things up...
It'd be easier to give me the status of the whole folder instead of individual files.
OneDrive shows me lists of files uploading but I need to back up folders and files. Not just files. So instead of uploading things easily by selecting multiple folders and files it makes me pull out the files and throw them in one folder or makes me create them. Doesn't make things work efficiently or quickly as I'd like it to.
