  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)

      • 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.

        • Enable sync client to allow editable synching of team sites with mandatory metadata columns

          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 fixed

              • 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.

                • metered connection policy as administrative setting

                  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.

                  • password protect onedrive folders

                    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.

                    • provide me with the authorization while creating a "Share with everyone" folder.

                      When I start to use the One Drive for Business within Power Shell, I enable the cmdlet in which the "Share with everyone" folder generates automatically and the authorization is given.

                      The reference that I checked:
                      https://support.office.com/en-us/article/6bb02c91-fd0b-42ba-9457-3921cb6dc5b2

                      Although at this point, I am able to finish completing the creation of folder, I hope the behavior to be improved that enables to give authorization properly to me because I have no authorization that I am supposed to be given.

                      • Sync of SPO Doc Libraries from IE browser doesn't work with NGSC, Chrome does

                        I have tested the new NGSC for months now and there are a few major issues causing us problems.

                        1. Even with now supporting sync of SharePoint Online Document libraries, the experience is not working within Internet Explorer. When you click the "Sync" button from either classic or Modern UX you are prompted to "Sign In" the experience takes you to a page telling you to "connect your onedrive" which is already done as I have my actual OneDrive for Business files syncing (selectively). Google Chrome works perfect with Document Libraries from SharePoint Online (and allows selective sync) as well…

                          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.

                            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.

                              • Online Viewer Support for Autocad Files *.dwg

                                Please add support for Autocad files.

                                As a global production company we use a fair amount of 2D layouts in our projects. We have recently started using SharePoint Online and Onedrive for manageing and standardising Projects. While our office workers love working with supported documents in SharePoint, our engineers hates it. It's a very cumbersome task, to always download - upload every 2D layout in order to work with them.

                                If we just could get a viewer it would be a good start enabling Autocad support and a great help to us.

                                  • Improve OneDrive setup / deploy / update experience for Enterprise

                                    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.

                                    • Automatically creating an album

                                      Allow us to disable OneDrive automatically creating an album please. This annoys a lot of people, including me, and should be optional.

                                      • improve the unhiding in One Drive for Business's [Shared With Me].

                                        I am aware that in case I delete the item along with the[Remove from Shared list]within[Shared With Me], I need to perform a sharing setting again for unhiding the item after re-uploading it in a[Shared by]. However, I hope that I will be able to display the item again only by sharing.

                                        • provide us with the bulk setting of a second language.

                                          I hope the feature to be available that could allow the bulk setting of a second language.
