  1. Please fix MIcrosoft update bug...

    OneDrive creates a temp file called aria-debugger. It's huge...40 g bytes, and keeps growing, grabbing all the free space on the hard drive.

    • Fix file copying for all sizes

      While we can successfully move "small" files with the Move To option in the website, Copy To *always* fails for "bigger" files. I haven't looked for an exact minimum size that can't be copied, but I know that a file of 24MB cannot be copied.

      At the very least any restrictions should be documented.

      • Fix OneDrive

        The last two weeks or so the free space on my hard drive shrinks by about 4g bytes a day. I found files in the temp folder called aria-debugger that are around 40 g bytes each, and they keep getting bigger. I can't uninstall OneDrive, and disabling it doesn't stop the problem. As the files are constantly growing, they can't be erased, and even if they are erased, new ones are created. I understand that the last update had the bug in OneDrive. Please fix and advise.

        • Cannot Download Single Item From Search Results

          When doing a search in a browser it won't let me download a single file from the results. I have to select 2 files and then the download option appears.

          • UPN change

            Changing of UPN in AD/AzureAD causes separation and sync issues with OneDrive for Business. No other Office 365 application appears affected. Currently no way to force a UPN change on the OneDrive side and we are being told that re-syncing the library is the only way to fix the issue.

            • Sync often incorrectly deletes files when OneDrive is synced with multiple PCs

              I sync my OneDrive with multiple devices. Recently, I updated the ID3v2 tags in my MP3 files in the \Music folder, and I had to resync ~70GB of music from my main PC to OneDrive. While this was happening, I disabled OneDrive on all the other devices. Once the sync was complete from the main device, I copied the updated files directly to all the other local devices that sync with OneDrive. (because it would have been stupid to have OneDrive on those PCs re-download 70GB for each device)

              After that copy, when I re-enabled OneDrive on those devices, it…

              • Clean up file accesss bugs

                "The file is missing or you don't have permission" - again and again, when trying to send file (as a file) via messenger app or email, or trying to open a pdf file (sometimes other files as well). One needs to open file in Word and then send it from there. Can't you fix that already?

                  • iOS app unreliably uploads selected pictures to OneDrive

                    When in the iOS Photos app, selecting 8 (or less) photos to upload to OneDrive, the process will not reliably upload all 8, even though OneDrive will say upload complete. It would appear to be random. Sometimes all 8 upload, sometimes less than eight. Same goes for 7, 6, 5 or 4 photos.

                      • Cannot download multiple files correctly on Mac

                        When you select multiple files and try to download them on Safari on Mac, the downloaded zip cannot be open unless you type 'unzip' command in terminal. (When you try to open zip file in normal Finder, the zip file is zipped again.) In addition, the folder opened in that way contains files whose names are broken.

                            When I share files/folders to people, they tell me that it didn't open properly on their device or laptop. It is almost like OneDrive is only focused on giving me extra storage, not on offering a good sharing experience.

                              • Windows 7 - Processing Changes - Extremely long, Sync Status is Green, While Folders are Empty

                                Noticed a discrepancy with Sync Status Icon and Folder Content with large library sizes in Windows 7.
                                1. When syncing a library 70+GB in file size the "Processing Changes" status is stuck in same status for extremely long period. (1-2 days)
                                2. When status is at "Processing Changes" the Sync Status of the folder icons was "Green" while the Folders showed empty. The actual sync status when "processing changes" is occurring should be blue circle "syncing" icon, not the green "synced" icon. This was misleading to user thinking data was missing and something was wrong with folder content.
                                3. After…

                                • Sharepoint locations' sync connection breaks repeatedly

                                  My company experiences regular occurrences of synced location disconnection from our Microsoft hosted SharePoint libraries (and also individual's OneDrive filestores).
                                  What's worse is that there is no acknowledgement by OneDrive that anything is amiss and users continue to work with the cached version of files without realizing updates aren't being uploaded which results in some pretty horrible version confusion on documents being collaborated on. When sync is reestablished with those locations, outdated versions of files can somehow get synced up to SharePoint

                                  This problem has occurred multiple times on many different computers in our organization and it's getting to the…

                                    Whenever the application is updated or occasionally asks the user again about the username and password (to reintroduce it, a strange security excess) of the educational account office 365 (it's which I use but I think it happened in all services), all downloaded offline files are lost and needed to be selected and downloaded again... is a big issue especially in my case that are hundreds of very heavy documents.

                                    • Focus on stability issues where Office intermediately locks up when saving to Onedrive

                                      For years now, Office gets into a not responding state when saving to OneDrive (for business) locations. It's exacerbated now that you have Autosave. Killing and restarting Office is a huge pain. Please focus on stability.

                                      • caption makes picture date change / editing caption is annoying as it disappear

                                        - When you add a caption to a picture, it changes the date/time!!!
                                        This is not good as it changes the flow of pictures history...
                                        - when you type a caption in the browser, it disappear if you take more than 5-6 seconds to type it (ajax refresh?). It is really annoying!!

                                        • Rollback NTFS only change. Allow ReFS.

                                          Onedrive client stopped supporting other filesystems (incl ReFS) except NTFS and HFS+ (mac client). This was done without notifying end users.

                                          An UserVoice was already created for this (Allow OneDrive folder to be on a Storage Space (ReFS File System)), but a Microsoft employee simply rejected it without justifying the sudden change.

                                          @Douglas Pearce: Dont reject this uservoice without giving justification. The link you provided in the previous uservoice doesnt explain why Onedrive for Mac works in HFS+ or that Onedrive for business (but same client) can still be synced to ReFS.
