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.
I agree. I having a similar problem too with OneDrive personal. OneDrive keeps on saying 'Uploading .. x files remaining' but there is no way to identify which files to see these are. Where bandwidth and time are limited, this can make it impossible to identify/stop the upload of a big file that may have inadvertently got added to the OneDrive sync space.
I have exactly the same problem. Just showing that 2 files are being uploaded, although nothing has changed. Already 9 GB of data and it is ongoing. The amount of data to be uploaded is also counting up, so no idea how much data will be uploaded. This happened just after I've installed an update (Macbook). Very frustrated with the whole process.
I'd really like this too. I use both OneDrive & Dropbox and this is something that makes the Dropbox experience much more transparent about what's going on. It's a key difference in the everyday experience & one reason I hold back switching everything to OneDrive.

I like the idea since most of the times I don t know what onedrive is doing and what is uploading.

Please do asap for the Mac client. I've just learned there is a max file size for upload, so it would be useful to be able to see where things are getting held up. Or IF they are getting held up. Eg, has upload stalled, or is it just a large file that is taking a long time?
I'm moving from Dropbox to One Drive. With about 250Mb of data, I need a better idea of how things are going. Or should I have stayed with Dropbox?

Agreed. It would also be very helpful to have the processing arrow icons like on dropbox. Otherwise, you don't know which folders are not up-to-date.

Please do this on the Mac client as well. My OneDrive is currently syncing 9.1GB of files but yet nothing has changed in the local folder to cause that much of a change. Bandwidth isn't always free.
And this should be available for both OneDrive and also OneDrive for Business.

This progress monitoring also includes the addition of 'green ticks' for the Mac client...see Mac threads.

A sync status icon for each file and folder is a must have and is another negative for Onedrive against its direct competitors. It's impossible to know which files are synced and up to date.
i see the most basic upload % by hovering over the onedrive icon in the system tray (win 10). that's basically all i want to know for now, but more details would be nice. and more control. i'd like the metro app back
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
Kyle Williams commented
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.
