    • Online-only support for Mac OS X

      Hello! I really like the online-only feature that OneDrive has for Windows, and I'm sad that the same feature isn't available for Mac. The files I have are eating up space on my hard drive, and using selective sync doesn't cut it (the large size of my OneDrive is due to images and .PSD documents which I open in bulk for image editing, and are a hassle to download from the website every time I simply want to use them.)

      I'd really appreciate it if this feature were implemented, since I'm running low on space! If not, I'm probably going…

                  • Fix OneDrive so it works with OSX High Sierra

                    Since the public release of OSX High Sierra, OneDrive is unable to sync up to an O365 SharePoint document library. Downloads are fine. A clean install to OSX Sierra resolved the issue.

                    • Better support for Sketch.app files

                      We still use Dropbox as OneDrive doesn't play nicely with the Sketch.app files on the Mac our user experience designers use. We'd love to move off of Dropbox entirely and only use OneDrive, but aren't able to until Sketch.app files are better supported.

                      • I'd like the Mac client to support file sync on demand the same as the Windows client currently does.

                        I'd like the Mac client to support file sync on demand the same as the Windows client currently does. We have clients who sync with many different Sharepoint sites and this way they could do so without using disk space until they actually need the file.

                        Thanks!

                          • Thought Satya Nadela's big thing was cloud. OneDrive on Mac sucks big time.

                            Syncing on Mac for OneDrive sucks real bad. It shows error for files which have no errors. Things get stuck for eons saying syncing files when just below it gives the message 10.8 GB of 10.8 GB synced. You guys can't get the basic feature right? I am quitting OneDrive and windows for good. I know one solitary complaint won't bother you but I am moving all my clients too. Enough is enough.

                              By default the link is created with Edit permissions to everyone who receives it.

                                • Make OneDrive MacOS FileName compatible

                                  Sync all your files anywhere, anytime across PC and Mac? Hardly!! OneDrive still has legacy Windows filename limitations and refuses to deal with files/file names that are fully legal names on the MacOS. This has been an issue for YEARS that Microsoft has continually ignored. Until Microsoft can be bothered to fix this, OneDrive will continue to be nothing but an "also ran", trailing far behind competing products/service what do not have such issues (which would be just about every other product/service out there). Until Microsoft can be bothered to fix this, I will have no other choice but to…

                                  • Enable storage to SD card as Mac users use Nifty minidrive as (semi)permanent expantion

                                    As the Mac has limited storagespace I have installed a SD card (SD-EVO) with a Nifty minidrive with an SD card of 128GB. It is removeble it sits actually permanent in the laptop.

                                    But it is not possible to select a removable drive.

                                    Request: Give a warning when selecting a removable station but please give the option to select is anyway!

                                      ​Safari にて OneDrive 管理センターの外部共有設定を行うバーの移動ができないため、Safari でも設定できるよう機能の改善を希望。

                                      Currently, we recognize that the users cannot move the bar which proceeds external sharing settings in OneDrive Admin Center via Safari. Therefore, I really hope the feature will be improved that enables activating the external sharing setting bar from OneDrive Admin Center via Safari browser as well.

                                      Thank you for your consideration.

                                        We would inform you the event occurs that the displays is not switching from the "Processing your change..." screen to the "Sync complete" state while synchronizing with OneDrive application via iOS (Mac devices).

                                        For this event, the users may confuse about this inappropriate behavior even though the synchronizing operation has been done successfully. We hope this event will be corrected as soon as possible.

                                        Thank you for your continued support.

                                        • Synce Documents, Desktop and Downloads folder on OneDrive on a Mac

                                          I would like to be able to map the Documents, Documents and Downloads folders to automatically sync with OneDrive similar to how it work on Windows 10.
