  1. Duplicate files/photos ( duplicates )

    Like other suggestions I would like a way to not have duplicate files/photos, to save space.

    Can we have some specific way to:

    1) run a "duplicate" search that can automatically delete files/photos based on a name, size and date
    2) search for duplicates and then list them all in name order, showing name, size and date to then give option to review then delete
    3) a file compare search for similar looking files, then the option to delete one(s)

      • Share OneDrive space with family

        My OneDrive has 220GB. I want to share these space with my wife to let her upload photos for us. I have created a folder, shared to her and given her full access but when she tries to upload files to it it say her OneDrive is full.
        Apparently she has used up her free 5GB.
        Well that’s fine but I’m paying for over 200GB.
        Why can’t you allow me to share my space with my wife?
        I have talked to one of your representatives and I was told the only way to share space with someone is to buy…

                • Text files!

                  I have a text file in onedrive. I want to edit it. I can't either on my iPad or android phone. I googled and people have suggested this. How hard can this be. Please add support for simple text file editing directly in one drive so I can pin a link to the text file to my home screen in Android and iOS, click it, and read and edit my file (e.g., to do list, shopping list, ideas, notes following a meeting or conversation - I know what you're going to say: use OneNote, but that keep corrupting my files…

                  • Allow AD synced users to change language

                    Currently, users synchronized with company local AD via Azure AD are not able to change their language in OneDrive or any other places via settings. Users should be able to change that and override the AD language setting, which is usually not used in Active Diretories or is not accurate. More info: http://www.lieben.nu/liebensraum/2015/03/change-office-365-portal-language-for-synced-users/

                              • Provide more than 1TB storage...Douglas Pearce PLEASE!

                                Reducing space from Unlimited to 1TB was crazy. Please add some space e.g. 10TB was good enough for all the 4k content, photos and documents. Even Apple's iCloud drive has option to get 2TB of space. On oneDrive I would have to buy additional 50GB. Seriously? Douglas Pearce please consider adding more space.

                                • copy here

                                  The "Copy to" functionality permanently request the user to go through to the destination path. A quick enhancement of the function would be to add the option "here" and not only "active Library" => this is gain of time and UX.

                                    • Provide the ability to filter out certain files by name/type during synchronisation

                                      In the Home version of OneDrive I'm having a problem particularly with Sketchup where, if I use the autosave option in the program OneDrive synchronises the autosave file every time Sketchup creates it – currently every 10 minutes.

                                      • Simplify and clarify the difference between each service of OneDrive.

                                        ■Description(内容):
                                        OneDrive for Business について、個人用 OneDrive との違いや使い分けが大変わかりにくいため、サービスの簡易化と明確化を希望します。

                                        Now it is difficult to distinguish between the differences and usage of "OneDrive" and "OneDrive for Business" , therefore we are not sure which service to select in various situations. Therefore we would like to simplify the service and clarify the difference between each service.

                                        Thank you for your continued support.

                                        • Hidden folders or Archive

                                          Just like you can do in File Explorer, the ability to toggle hidden files/folders would be nice because it’s an easy way to clear the clutter without committing to deleting a file. Either that or a built in Archive feature would be equally as useful.
