  1. Improve sync/upload/download speeds using the desktop client

    I don't know what's the reason, but the integrated onedrive syncing in Windows 8.1 is terribly slow for me. For both uploading and downloading files, on multiples devices and on many different networks.

    It feels like it's an issue with the desktop syncing, because through the web app I get way higher speeds.

    Yesterday we announced increased Sync client performance https://blog.onedrive.com/onedrive-now-supports-10-gb-files/

    “As part of our push to continue improving the OneDrive desktop experience, we’ve increased the number of files that can be downloaded or uploaded at a given time on PCs and Macs. In internal tests, this parallel syncing netted an approximately threefold increase in syncing speed. Our performance enhancements have begun rolling out and will be available worldwide in the coming weeks.”

    I’ll flag this as completed but performance updates (similar to security are never really completed, they are always being worked on. Let me know if yo uwant this reopened.

    Please give the ability to see all shared folders on Windows explorer (like Dropbox: shared folders have another icon to differentiate between them and your own folders)
    Or make an extra folder named "shared" where you can find every shared file (like in the OneDrive app)

  3. Fix Skydrive.exe perpetual crash/restart Windows 8.1 issue

    Pick a link, any link: http://www.bing.com/search?q=skydrive.exe+crashing+%22windows+8.1%22&src=IE-SearchBox&FORM=IE11SR

    I'm seeing this issue on multiple Win 8.1 boxes. No idea what's causing it or how to fix it. I ran the troubleshooter today and it's still running after nearly an hour. Leaving it overnight.

    We need more details on this one, once can get in touch with us we can take it from there. This could be more than one issue.

  4. One Drive Sync from an external drive without PC

    I am using Microsoft surface Pro 3, but due to limited storage on the Tablet, I use an external drive (external hard disk) to store all my files and as daily hard disk.

    Right now there is no way to do a sync OneDrive with an External Drive. It would very helpful, if I can sync my external Hard Disk with One Drive, without going though my Surface Pro 3.

  5. Fix OneDrive sync "processing changes" problem with Windows 10

    Installed Windows 10. Since then, I've had non-stop problems with OneDrive. I rely on OneDrive to a great extent. I've spent the past five days troubleshooting and almost fixed it by right clicking on the OneDrive folder, Properties, Security, Advanced, then checking "Replace all child object permission entries with inheritable permission entries from this object" and clicking OK. However, whenever I reboot, I lose Permissions again and OneDrive stops syncing. Ex. After rebooting, if I click on a folder inside my OneDrive folder, I'll get a pop up saying "You don't currently have permission to access this folder. Click Continue…

  6. Make it so my one drive is actually protected!

    I recently lost 3 years of work docs. I use my one drive for everything. and recently my laptop got ransomware. within minutes every file on my one drive had been encrypted. As a result ever device I have synced with it lost those files. My suggestion is to create a protection that would recognize when every file is being encrypted and stop it. or at least warn the party before it allows it to sync on other devices. You advertise that my files are protected, It seems thought that protecting them from this sort of situation would be most…

  7. i do not use one drive because i do not want anyone to have access to my files

    I dislike the idea of my files being help by a third party it just leaves them open to being hacked as we can all see this happening all the time to data bases for stores that we use

  8. If not "One Product" ... at least One Way...

    Here is my problem! Long text here.

    Q: What is this "One" all of us discuss? And what is behind it?
    Is it "One = Single" Product? or any "single" independent thing?
    I struggle to understand this "ONE"...
    A: There is no "one". :) Yet. But maybe it could be "One way" ...

    Windows is not just a kernel - it's a service too. It should provide necessary help to do your job - Like Cortana - when accessing some API's.
    But what Cortana can do if there is no API to use?

    So here is my problem: Let's take…
