  1. Verrrrrrrrry Slow

    OneDrive is pathetically slow with uploads. For at least the last two weeks, it's been closer to dial up speeds. It can take hours to upload 500 meg. Historically, I haven't seen uploads faster than very low broadband speeds. I have a decent broadband connection - can stream HD movies and do other things simultaneously. I'm truly sick of it. What's more amazing...I'M A PAYING CUSTOMER. I'm not just using the free version. I would expect slower speeds if I were only using the free version. But to pay money and get this, pitiful.

    • Right clik sync now

      It will be cool if you can force update of the file if there are a lot of thing to sync. Just right click on this file and push the button Sync now, for fast update of certain files, that you need right now.

      • Add a setting to select Music and Videos to be saved to OneDrive by default.

        Similar to how one can choose for Documents and Photos to be saved to OneDrive instead of "This PC"

        • Ability to install a specific version of OneDrive

          It would be nice to have the ability to install a specific version of OneDrive just like they have for Office 365 Click to Run. This would help when we troubleshoot issues. That way we can identify when the issue actually started and give exact information to Microsoft.

          • Bring back "Right click pause Sync"

            Bring back "Right click pause Sync"
            This feature only needed 2 clicks before. Now we need 3 clicks. It is a step back in user experience!

            • Allow subfolder exclusion without changing the default behavior of its parent folder

              I use my OneDrive storage as my Documents library on multiple PCs, because this lets me sync data between apps that don't offer their own cloud storage solution. However, I need to exclude some files (like the graphics configuration files for several games, for example) as their content is specific to the machine I'm accessing them from. The issue is, if I manually exclude the directories where these files are, OneDrive treats the entire Documents folder as 'only sync manually selected folders' and any new folders I create by default are not synced. Please allow users to exclude certain files…

              • Progress info for on-demand sync

                It would be more user-friendly to show current progress of on-demand folders sync. Currently it's only shown as "Processing changes" and popping up new files in the OneDrive pane. User doesn't know how fast is it going, how much files are left, when it will end. Having similar info as for classic sync would be nice.

                • Game Mode

                  If you are playing a game - OneDrive should cease updates, focus, and bandwidth allocation.

                  • OneDrive indexing for WIndows Search

                    I am not sure I am at the right place to post this, but since some Microsoft engineer said here would be a more appropriate place for my post in Microsoft Community, here it goes (don't shoot me if this is considered cross posting):

                    Prior to installing the Fall Creators Update on my Windows 10 machine last week, all my files stored in any of my OneDrive subfolders were indexed and fully searchable through Windows Search. For example, entering ‘content:management‘ in the upper right search box would return all the documents (PDF, Word, etc.) that contained the word ‘management’.

                    Right…

                    • Fix the "All files up to date" when they're not status report

                      When OneDrive opens it initially reports all files up to date before it has checked. Consequently this status is often wrong. The status is important. That's why OneDrive reports it. So it should be correct. The initial status should be "checking"

                      • OneDrive CSP for MDM management

                        With SilentConfig coming (https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/OneDrive-Blog/Previews-for-Silent-Sync-Account-Configuration-and-Bandwidth/bc-p/120993#M252) we need the ability to configure clients through MDM (Intune). A OneDrive CSP would help us achieve this.

                        • OneDrive Syncronization Detailed Status

                          We need a detailed status pane to show the status of the file synchronization along with approximate metrics of how long it will take.

                          When viewing the proposed sync status page the system should also warn the user if their power settings will interrupt the sync, and suggest or provide easy fixes to resolve the issue.

                          Perhaps a dynamic power profile that goes into a high availability mode only when necessary and then reverts back to a normal power saving mode when sync is no longer needed.

                                  • Synchronize order - files to use vs downloading in background

                                    I want to open a 100kb file from onedrive, but the file is in the cloud. This 100kb file will not open for a long time, because a synchronisation of 1GB of photo's from my cell phone is busy (that folder has the setting: "always keep on this device" ). Files I want to access should be downloaded first, then the whole bunch of new files..
