  1. onedrive web always stalls after uploading few files - hangs on "uploading *** items" for ever (win 10 chrome and Edge)

    i am trying to upload my photos to onedrive via the web. I dont do it via the windows sync app as I dont want this folder synced as its too big.

    I know all the fragile problems with onedrive, and can confirm that:

    all my file names are < 8 chars + ".jpg"
    None of the filenames nor folders have any chars other than ascii
    There is only one level deapth (a directory with files in it)
    I have 300GB of space left in my 1TB (so its not a space issue).
    Files are all < 10MB, so its…

    • Support for .heic files

      Could you please add support for .heic as iOS 11 uses this format and when iOS 11 releases all apple phones will only use this format. As I am on an iOS 11 beta I have noticed my photos are starting to become unviewable in the photos tab and shown as blank .heic files in the files tab. This is a problem that will get more urgent as it gets nearer iOS 11 release as of now for anybody on the beta programme one drive photos is unusable. Please update! Thanks

          Hi, folks. We’re sorry this is taking a while. We’re working with the Outlook team on this now.

        • Fast scroll on photos page for quicker navigation

          Very dificult to scroll to older pictures in OneDrive without a fast way to move through the timeline.

          • Make API for Shared folders a lot better

            You are able to Access the shared folders by you and others with "https://api.onedrive.com/v1.0/drive/shared&quot; and access each of the elements by /drive/items/{id}

            What I miss:
            - Possibility to upload to folders shared by others that I have write access to.
            - Possiblity to list the permissions for each item (OneDrive.com uses /API/2/GetPermissions)
            - Possibility to Add/delete permissions as well

              We haven’t documented the /shared API because we’re still working on making it work better. We’re working on expanding support for more sharing concepts including those you have listed.

            • Add custom properties to files in OneDrive (personal/live)

              For the OneDrive consumer version it is currently not availlabe to add customer file data (other than tags and comments). For a new app we would like to store some additional metadata for the files that are uploaded.
              We would recommend the same approach as https://developers.google.com/drive/v2/reference/properties/insert
