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)3,980 votes

Enable sync client (NGSC) to allow editable syncing of document libraries with secondary versions turned on
Comparable to the described problems in this post https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/17864110-enable-sync-client-to-allow-editable-synching-of-t the NGSC is not able to sync libraries (neither SharePoint nor O365-Groups), that have secondary versions turned on. The synced files are write protected and can’t be edited by library owners or other write-permitted users.
This really restricts the possibilities in scenarios where companies use the secondary-versioning and publishing-to-full-version-feature to secure the presentation of content in document libraries and keep content-producers productive.466 votes
As at 23rd Jan 2017 the newly relased One Drive for Business synch client enables synching of Team sites BUT if any libraries have mandatory meta data or require check out, the synched folder/library is read only. This cripples collaboration by teams on documents. This needs to be fixed230 votes
Thanks for the suggestion. This is something we’re aware of and thinking about.
Please add a policy Setting to configure how the Client would act when detecting a metered Connection. For example Limit the upload/download rate or disable the sync completely when connected to a metered connection.95 votes
So why can you scan multiple pages with office lens but not with the new scan feature in onedrive? And vise versa regarding renaming the file.115 votes
Even though the upload bandwidth throttling through GPO is already available, the download bandwidth throttling is even more important to guarantee that operational processes are not impacted.
Please implement this as well.191 votes

Enable the option to sync onedrive files from files shared cross o365 organizations when using the OneDrive next gen sync client.
Many customers wan't the option to collaborate with OneDrive cross o365 organization, and have the option to sync the shared files with OneDrive. Right now you are only able to sync files shared within your own o365 organization. Right now the only option is to browse to the shared link and access the files. Trying to use "sync" will result in an error in OneDrive (next gen sync client) as shown in attached file.52 votes
Currently, the OneDrive client in Windows 10 is a per user install. Updates are installed per user and require internet access at time of running.
It would be great if the OneDrive client could be installed on a per machine basis and be updated in a similar way or using Windows Update/WSUS/ConfigMgr.
OneDrive for Business is starting to become popular with Enterprise and making them manage this per user seems a little backwards.175 votes
Allow us to disable OneDrive automatically creating an album please. This annoys a lot of people, including me, and should be optional.1,640 votes
We’re working on this now.
I really hope the additional feature to be implemented that enable me to acquire One Drive for Business's item backup for a certain period of time.24 votes
Allow Password protection within OneDrive.com. If this is enabled enforce same protection for files synced locally to the local PC or device. Password protected folders cannot be synced unless specifically requested on the sync panel on a PC. Alternatively do not enforce password protection on the onedrive.com site, but allow files synced to local folders on a device to specify password protection required.55 votes
Please enable finger print unlock as pass code instead of standard pass code, just like drop box does. No offense! It's just my suggestion.165 votes
Thanks for the suggestion.
I've found the location to show the Office 365 within One Drive for Business's modern UI changed into the site viewing. I feel it inconvenient if I experience this behavior because I have a difficulty in accessing the current files shared among Office 365 groups. I am also confused by this sudden issue because I'm not informed in advance of this behavior change within Message Center.So, I hope the public information about this change to be open in advance.17 votes
I know lots of apps use the ellipsis/three dots (...) when the text reaches a character limit, but I think it's a little annoying when you have to go to the properties of the file/folder just to see it's full name. Just make a new type of view (detailed view?) or make it as an option in settings.216 votes
Thanks for the suggestion. We’ll take a look as part a future design update.
It is recommended by Microsoft to redirect "Known folders" to OneDrive for Business.
Desynchronizing a folder on OneDrive also removes it from the computer. This behavior generates side effects when desynchronizing "System/Known folders" (ex: Desktop)
Is there any plan for adding a GPO that could prevent users from desynchronizing some of their folders ?64 votes
For our company it's a Must-Have to be have the option to disable the sharing on ODfB entirely (also tenant internal).
This is to prevent users from setting up project or team workspaces in their own user drives.
A similar idea was posted here, but since it was not splitted up by the user, I posted this new one.
We have numerous application teams that want access to MS Message Center however they aren't admins. Why not provide rights to just this portion of the Admin Center (view\read only) based on role or group membership? Alternatively why not have a Message Center DL or RSS feed or a Message Center site associated with each tenant viewable to all?31 votes
I attempt to sync the folders with the next sync client within Windows 7 and its sync folder's name has been corrupted.
I request that the sync folders'characters should not be corrpted in case of sharing with [Shared with Me] of SharePoint document library and OneDrive for Business under the conditions below. I hope that I will be able to open the files properly.
