      Desperately need a "force sync" capability on all platforms. I verified my file uploaded to the cloud from my Android but have been waiting for the last hour for it to appear on my PC.

      • Option to disable the popup when clicking on the system tray.

        I really hate the popup that shows up when I try to open onedrive on my desktop by double clicking the OneDrive system tray icon.

        It is supposed to only open when you single click, but it has no delay, so it opens instantly, even if you double click. It is really annoying and it needs an option to disable it.

        It constantly glitches out as well, it would be really nice if I could just turn it off.

        Thanks for listening.

        • Choose to Sync any folder from any location on my PC

          Instead of forcing me to move files/folders into a master OneDrive folder, I should be able to choose to sync any folder from any location on my PC's storage.

          • Roll out enterprise management (GPO etc) with OneDrive Files On Demand

            With the new OneDrive Files On Demand feature (placeholder replacement) would it be possible (if it isn't already planned) to incorporate some enterprise controls- for example via Group Policy.

            When deploying OneDrive to our environment I'd like to be able to set the defaults on a per-computer and possibly per-user basis. Being able to use item-level targeting would be ideal.

            Examples of how these preferences could be used include the ability to set the default behaviour to "Online Only" files for most users (particularly useful for student computer labs in education environments), or turn on "Always Available" on personal computers…

                            Improve the upload speed and sync of this service. This product is slower than any I have and indeed I have ALL the major Cloud Storage Services. Drop Box, Google Drive and One Drive. I have O365 Home with 1 Tb for each of my computers. The cloud storage is largely unusable. Example I uploaded from the Windows Client using Drop Box 2.27 gb it took less than 5 minutes. Contrast I have been running an upload /sync of 258 GB that has been running for 20 hours and synced a total of 43 GB. At this rate if will…

                                • Toggle the ability to synchronize locally only selected files and folders, but view the whole collection int he Explorer interface

                                  I currently have 100gb of data in Onedrive, and a storage limit of 5tb.

                                  My local device however has a 256gb disk, so obviously i can not synchronize my entire library once it gets larger.

                                  I would however like to select the folders that are cached locally, but still have ALL content visible through the Windows Explorer interface, however instead of having the green tick, they could just have the blue cloud icon?

                                  Having to navigate the Web interface is horrendous, and detracts from the benefits of cloud storage.

                                  It could look like the attached documents.

                                  • I really wish you'd fix your one drive to allow user control!

                                    I wanted to have access to the music on one drive without it syncing to my music player. I keep setting it up to only play music from my local device but your stupid one drive keeps adding it to the music player. As a result, I have duplicates listed. It will not follow my setting and keeps resetting itself. Why must you think everybody is too stupid to decide what they want. I wanted to music available as an easy way to back it up in the event of a hard drive failure. Thanks for ruining it.

                                    • Files on demand - Online only

                                      Make an option so that Files on Demand doesn't download anything to the hard drive as over time, files will begin to download and space will run out.

                                      Windows 8.1 had it good.
