  1. Enable Directory Restores (Versions) - not just file restores

    In https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/6327142-enable-file-versioning-history-for-all-types-of

    you delivered file versioning for all file types. This gives good protection against ransomware and accidental modification.

    However to be usable it is necessary that I can restore a whole directory - I have thousands of files and a 1 by 1 approach will not work.

      • OneDrive integration with iOS 11 Files App

        When will OneDrive integrate with iOS 11 Files App. Both Google Drive, Dropbox support integration with Files App and the ability to drag files into other apps, like Apple email app. Apple iCloud also provides the functionality.

        • More (than 1TB) OneDrive Space to Buy

          Please give us this option. People dealing with videos and photos professionally eat up 1TB very easily (even if they use whole inconvenient "family pack" 5TB workaround).

          Thank you MS,

              • ipad not syncing

                I use OneDrive everyday on my Samsung and PC, and online - no issues

                Yet the iPad doesn't sync. How do I fix this. It always shows old files (especially spreadsheets)

                I have a subscription

                No one seems to be able to help

                I try sync manually but doesn't seem to work - am I missing something? What are the steps to sync manually on iPad (latest version updated for OneDrive and iOS)

                Do Microsoft and Apple hate each other that much. If I delete my account it comes back but then wont sync???

                Any help?

                  • KINDLE:can't find any setting options to filter which folders are synced/accessible in my Kindle One Drive? We need this in kindle also!

                    We need option to select folders on kindle onedrive app? It is NOT there! It does exist for Android and PC but not kindle???? This is a deal breaker for me as I have over 25 gbs in my onedrive! Way too much to sync to a little mobile device! Also some of it is private business and must not be accessed! Please please advise or/and correct. Thank you One Drive team!

                      • Avoid using Onedrive for Online Office?

                        Can we just directly open files from our computers instead of uploading it to our Onedrive and then open it?

                        (Chinese Government successfully shut down the use of Onedrive, but we could still access office online, which is pretty handy but annoying just because we could not upload any files to Onedrive.)

                        Thanks! We really enjoy using office online so far until we could not access Onedrive a month ago.

                        • Allow AutoSave to be disabled for all Office Apps

                          I hate your new AutoSave feature for Microsoft Office. I do not want to save my files every few seconds when I am experimenting with formatting, formulas, etc. I want to be able to try stuff and then close the file, not save it and reopen the file to be back where I was before the experiment.

                          • Online only option storage

                            On my PC there was an option to make files in my one drive folder online only. I could right click them and they would be available online only freeing up storage on the device, while leaving a file link or thumbnail that would trigger the file to download when opening. How do I make that same thing on my MacBook Pro. The same could be said for chromebooks or other non windows devices

                              Background now is white on photos.

                              Please change it back to black, or give users the option to select it.

                              For photographers this is important. My wife now is all upset about this.

                                The online OneDrive text editor used to support word wrap. Now it doesn't, which makes it useless for me since I use it for writing, not coding. Please restore word wrap.

                                  • Hide folder structure when sharing folders with others

                                    Despite it's stated here as "solved" this issue remains. When workind for a customer, I store all the data on OneDrive, sorted by project, date, version and so on. When I want to show something to my customer or deliver the final files, I usually share an export folder within my project folder. To my horror I just realised, every customer can see my whole folder structure up to the root folder. This is absolutely not acceptable for I consider my file structure and my namings as private property and in worst case as confidential. Please fix this or give…

                                      • File request feature

                                        I am looking for file request feature like dropbox. where even unregistered users can upload their files. Basically i want that feature so that my clients can upload their files which range from 2gb to 6gb at times. Where anyone having link can upload their files. I am thinking of buying outlook for business. But there is no meaning of buying it if i cannot do that.
