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.
Just do it and enable your customers to consciously choose for themselves.. If they see it doesn't work the way they want to, they can go to a competitor. Now you're just obscuring the fact that OneDrive does not sync/syncs slowly/does not work/is not optimized correctly? Or let's just keep guessing further..
Had enough of this endless processing and no idea whta file is being updated or if in fact there is a problem and if there is a problem what it is. Moved all files to Google drive and paid the extra $2 per month. If you want my money then provide a useful serve

What is the big problem Microsoft. Thousands of users have told you how helpful and useful this feature would be. If you really care about improving your customer's experience, you would do it. Not a year from now...but now. Wake up.

This needs to happen. Google drive has it and it's *SO* useful.

****! I deleted my photos from my local drive believing that they've all been uploaded already but some were not.

In OneDrive for Windows (which I'm using in connection with my Office 365 Home on different machines) I see with a short look into the folder, which directory / files are in need of synchronization and which ones are already synched. I really like this highly transparent modus of working. On my Mac it's a total lack of the sync status of at least the directories / folders or of files requiring an update. Would be very nice if you could improve this asap. (Or did I miss a configuration option?)
A sync log will also be helpful to track which files are recently updated.

It could be a problem only for the first sync, but in the differential it goes so seamlessly that makes such information unnecessary. Even in the first sync, you just have to know that it will take hours; every minute information is not required.

It appears that Microsoft is processing changes about showing details on processing changes.
something something NSA something something Darkside.
do it !!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! .... onedrive just sits there and no one knows whats happening
Stop thinking about it and do it... Linux is looking better and better every day
I would like this feature too, or at least someone competent to help me from Microsoft analyzing the issues I am having with OneDrive and its syncing. Basic information like which file it is trying to sync at the least would be so very helpful.

Almost a year and a half later... and still thinking about it? "processing changes" doesn't tell me much. I'd like to see how long I have left to wait for "processing changes" to be completed and some summary of what changes are actually being processed. Is this too hard to do?
The Win 8.1 app was more verbose than the Win10 app. The Win10 app needs to give us as much info as possible. Uploads, downloads, Processing changes, files remaining, speed. Giving us this info also helps you with troubleshooting issues, so it's win-win.
I added one music file and now my laptop is uploading over 20K files? Which ones? Why? WTF? One drive was already synced. Not to mention the files that keep getting deleted then the recycle bin (one drive online) emptied itself. I can't scroll throu over 20K files in no particular order to see if what was deleted was resynced? And they are any files I deleted, One Drive did this on its own, no meta tag changes, nothing.

Great idea now 15 months old. Git er done!
Dropbox does something now.
Thanks Keith (May 06, 2016 11:58) for your suggestion. I'm going to try that for now.

So Microsoft any word on a status other than hovering the mouse constantly to see how many files are remaining?? This is just plain silly.... obviously a LOT of people want this feature/functionality!!
The kind of feature you just assume is there, and waste time looking for it, because no one would release it without some type of syncing status details. Should be part of the minimum viable product
