  1. Enable FLAC Music Streaming from OneDrive

    Many users today have FLAC music libraries. FLAC (free lossless audio codec) is a free, open-source, CD-quality file format which is in many ways superior to MP3. Unfortunately, you're currently unable to stream FLAC music from OneDrive through Groove Music.

    Personally speaking, all but a few of my songs stored in OneDrive are FLAC format. Unfortunately, Groove music doesn't recognize these songs unless they are saved to my device locally. Therefore my Groove music library on my Lumia 950XL is empty, aside from the few songs in OneDrive I have saved as MP3s. Even if you search for a song…

    We understand the request, but don’t have any plans to support FLAC file playback at this time. We have continued to invest in better video and audio playback experiences across the OneDrive apps for the most common media file types.

  2. Stop creating unwanted folders

    Every time I start up OneDrive for the first time a new folder named 'Documents' is created. A cloud service like OneDrive is supposed to sync the files and folders that I define on the server one-to-one without creating new, unwanted folders. Now I have to delete this folder three times a day and I'm fed up with it. The same goes for the camera roll functionality, which creates a new directory structure to back up the pictures, instead of letting the user define where to store the files. Think about usability please!

    Thanks for the suggestion. We are looking separately at camera roll from folders like Documents and Pictures. If you want to split this up, we’ll prioritize them separately.

  3. iOS Camera Roll Backup Bug

    Not all of my images/videos in my camera roll are successfully backed up in OneDrive for iOS even though I have the Camera Roll Backup feature turned on and the status says "up to date".

    I ended up having to copy all the images off my iPhone to a PC and do a folder diff with my OneDrive CameraRoll folder. What I found was occasional photos taken between Aug 2014 an Jan 2015 were not present in my OneDrive Camera Roll.

    Before manually finding the differences, I was able to visually spot some missing photos in the OneDrive app. I…

    Hi, folks. We know about this issue and are working on it. The best way for us to help you is to have you send feedback (and logs) directly from the app. You can shake your phone or send the bug report through Settings / Help & Feedback.
