  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 folders temporary

      Sometimes you want to share some files or photos temporary with someone so that he/she can download. If you can select in the menu a date until when the folder is accessible the process is automated. I do not need to go back to the folder and remove the access rights manually. Also it makes sure that I do not forget to remove the access rights.

      • When deleting and O365 Buisness user, make it easy to move the files/folders to another user.

        When an employee that uses OneDrive for Business leaves the organization there should be an option to move their files to another employee (superior, replacement, temporary, etc.).

        Instead of having to download and then reupload the files to another user, it should be an option during the user deletion to move the files.

        • Request that someone sends a file to me

          I (and my users) often need to request large files from a contact outside my organization, but Office 365 and OneDrive do not provide this functionality in a simple way. Microsoft support tells me to “either create a shared Sharepoint site or ask the other party to upload files to their own OneDrive and share the file”. Both of these “solutions” require the other party to have a Microsoft ID and force me into the awkward position of being a Microsoft evangelist (as I tell them how to get a Microsoft ID, upload the file, and then share it with…

            Great suggestion and it’s definitely a scenario we want to address. Right now it’s not high on our backlog compared to other priorities but we’ll keep you informed as we firm up our plans.

          • prevent shared files from being downloaded

            I think it would be great if there was some setting to turn download's of a shared file or folder ON\OFF... what I mean is suppose I want to share a File\Folder with someone, I would only want them to be able to view\edit it online and not be able to download it onto their computer.. to take this idea further, it could also be helpful if you could prevent copying content from shared files... the download permission could probably be visible once a user decides to share a particular file with someone

            • preview html files inside onedrive

              Provide an option to view a basic HTML file preview, right inside the www.OneDrive.com .

              Currently when I click a .html inside the onedrive, it gives me the code to edit. Instead of just code, provide an option to preview the basic HTML without any JS or CSS

              • Separate folders for each device backing up to the camera roll

                If you have multiple devices that would take advantage of the camera roll there should be an option to put them in separate folders. IE if you have an android phone, ipad, etc each device should be given the opportunity to use a subfolder (Camera roll\ipad and Camera roll\android)

                  • Allow shared folders to be stored within sub folders

                    The new feature that allows shared folders to be synced on the desktop is awesome.
                    however, shared folders are added to the root of the OneDrive folder and cannot be nested into the file structure. That is an issue : the root folder will soon be full of random shared folder. Allow us to store them where they belong ! Think of project-related stuff, pictures that you want to store in your "summer 2015" folder,...
                    Google Drive implementation is fine : you get an overview of all shared folders on the website ("shared with me" tab) and you can nest…

                    • Enable differential sync (only sync parts of the files that changed)

                      Today OneDrive implements differential sync only for Office files (that is, syncing only the changes made to the file, instead of the entire file). It would be a significant improvement for this capability to work against any files in OneDrive - so smaller changes to a file would result in less data needing to be transmitted, meaning less time to sync changes back and forth, and more efficient use of network bandwidth.

                        • Show full file/folder name

                          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.

                              • Support for RAW/NEF/DNG photos (especially thumbnails)

                                Onedrive.com supports RAW photo files, but the Onedrive for Business photo gallery doesn't.

                                (the consumer product supports professional photo formats and the professional product only support consumer formats. Disappointing...)

                                • Syncing over LAN

                                  This would allow multiple PCs / Devices with the same OneDrive account to sync over the local LAN network. This makes a huge difference when setting a new PC (or restoring one) as you can transfer 100's of gigs over the LAN much faster and without impacting your Internet bandwidth cap.

                                  • Allow integrated file sharing from OneDrive folder on Mac (like Dropbox)

                                    When on Dropbox folder, right click allows direct link share. It would be nice if OneDrive could do the same. So far, OneDrive as very limited functionalities. Thanks!

                                    • Allow files of any size to be uploaded and synced

                                      As much as I appreciate the hard work of the Onedrive team for removing the 2GB file size limit and pushing the limit to 10GB, I was really hoping for an unlimited file size when syncing from the desktop or other localized app. I might be an edge case, but I use a competitor to sync VHD's (Virtual Hard Drives) that I use for various purposes and those are far larger than 10GB.

                                      • Live Photos

                                        With the new iPhone 6s and iOS 9, are there plans to automatically upload the mov file that is created as part of the "live photo". It would be nice to make it an option, similar to how uploading videos is an option. Thanks.

                                        • Allow OneDrive sync to removable media on Android

                                          The android app cannot see the sd card on android phones. I keep music, photos, etc on the sd card which OneDrive can't access. This makes OneDrive unusable. As a note, dropbox supports sd.
