  1. OneDrive Support for D750 NEF files

    There is now support for viewing RAW (NEF) files from Nikon D750 (NEF files from other Nikon DSLRs works fine).

    • Allow the user to set/select the languages for a sharing notification email when sending to the recipient by the setting.

      Currently, I am aware of the behavior that the sharing notification is sent to the user automatically in the language of recipient's settings. I hope the language of the sharing notification email can be selected freely by the user who shared documents or folders.

        • 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…

          • Implement a folder tree like Google Drive. It would make navigating and moving files around much easier.

            I'm surprised this isn't already a feature. Clicking through folder labels to get to where I want to go is irritating. It'd be much better to expand a folder tree and go right where I need to. We need a navigation pane for a more friendly UI experience.

            • 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.

              • Automatically shorten urls for publicly shared items from OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online

                Automatically shorten the urls for publicly shared items from SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business, similar to what is available in OneDrive.

                When the feature is complete the urls generated by Get a Link / Create Link should be shortened automatically (possibly using http://1dr.ms) and a similar feature should be introduced in Sharepoint Online document libraries.

                • Add support for authenticated proxies

                  The OneDrive desktop client currently doesn't work on networks with authenticated proxies. This makes OneDrive useless in these kinds of environments.

                  • 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.

                      • respect metered connections in Windows 10

                        In Windows 8.1, OneDrive would detect whether the internet connection was a metered (data-capped) connection or not and would automatically pause syncing until it was connected to a non-metered network. This functionality seems to have been removed in Windows 10. Please bring it back.

                        • Sort by file type

                          There should be an option to sort by file type so you can order things more quickly if you are looking for say a word document that you have deleted by accident.

                            Adds the ability to tag documents with metadata tags and to add another function to search in these metadata tags.

                            For users it will brings new opportunities how to organize their data. It's a different approach compared to storing files only in a directory structure.

                              Thanks for the feedback and suggestions. I see a number of the comments here are about photo tagging and search. We have a pretty big update starting to roll out today that we talked about here:

                                • 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)

                                  • Add support for RDS and Azure RemoteApp

                                    Please add support for RDS and Azure RemoteApp to the 'Next Gen' client. At least the following scenario's should be supported:

                                    - RDS Session based Desktops
                                    - RDS Sessoin based RemoteApps
                                    - RDS VDI
                                    - Azure RemoteApp

                                    Both the User Profile disk and Roaming Profiles should be supported as storage solution within RDS and Azure RemoteApp. Since more customers are migrating to Office 365 the support for this client in RDS became more and more critical.

                                      Thanks for the suggestion. We’re thinking about it, and our supported scenario available today is to use the Universal app or the website where users can access their data in OneDrive and Sharepoint without sync’ing all the files in advance. Don’t forget that Office natively supports opening and editing these files, too!

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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 the mac version to install OneDrive folder at removable disk

                                          A lot of macs have expensive and limited SSDs and it would be convenient to be able to put the OneDrive folder at a external drive.
