    • Invalidate the deletion of the "Notebook" folder created automatically or to hide from the screen.

      *English follows Japanese

      ■Title(件名): ノートブック フォルダーについて

      Invalidate the deletion of the "Notebook" folder created automatically or to hide from the screen.
      ***************
      ■Description(内容):
      OneDrive for Business 上に、​OneNote Online の保存先としてノートブックというフォルダーが自動で作成されるが、自分で作成したものではないためユーザーが削除してしまい、ファイルが失われる事例もあると思う。そのため、このようなフォルダーは削除できない、または非表示にするような動作にしてほしい。

      Now, a folder named "Notebook" is automatically created on OneDrive for Business when saving OneNote Online files. However, since it is not a folder that the owners created by itself, they may accidentally delete them. Which means there is concern that OneNote files will be deleted unintentionally.

      Therefore, I hope the feature to be improved that enables to invalidate the deletion of the "Notebook" folder or to hide from the screen.

                  • .onedriveignore, an ignore file like git

                    gitignore for OneDrive

                    Add a .onedriveignore file to the OneDrive folder (global) in which you can specify files/folder to ignore.

                    Do the same for subfolders.

                    This would allow easy syncing of Visual Studio projects for example, as currently the application just syncs non stop if you open a solution file that has it's data stored with OneDrive.

                                We are considering to save the storage capacity of the local PC as much as possible.
                                However, now it takes time and effort to perform "Right clicking"> "For more storage space" operation after each editing with the File on Demand feature at present.

                                Therefore, we hope you to add an option that enables [For more storage space] automatically after file editing.

                                  I have the same problem others have. I have multiple people using my PC at work and at home, and I have no privacy with my OneDrive files. Anyone using my PC can look at my private files on OneDrive. What if you had the option to turn on Two Factor Authentication on OneDrive? This way if you wanted to turn it on, whoever tries to access your OneDrive files, would need your phone... or access to your Microsoft Authenticator app. This would solve the problem with password protected file requests that I see many people asking for. It would…
