  1. Files on demand, automatic cleanup

    When using files on demand over time, OneDrive will start to sync a lot of files which after some time will become inactive. Today the user would have to right-click the OneDrive-folder and select Clean up in order to stop the sync of these files and delete the local files stored on the user's device.

    I propose a new optional feature. When files or folders have been inactive for a period of time (say 30 days) I would like OneDrive to automatically clean up, deleting the locally stored files and folders but still keeping them in the cloud.

    It should…

    • shared by me

      Could you add a menu "Shared by me" (similar as "Shared with me") in OneDrive web interface on the left side menu?

      More about the user need: on OneDrive, files and folder are shared "only you" by default but you can share files/folders hidden in folders or sub-folders which stay unshared. Over time it becomes very hard to see what you shared, thus having this page view of all files/folders "shared by me" would be very convenient for users...

      • SYNC SHARED FOLDERS Without Duplicate Files!!

        Right now, syncing shared folders is a NIGHTMARE because of the duplicate files it creates. This is unfortunate because it creates more work than it's worth. I understand this is currently a design limitation, but if it could be fully supported and implemented to support syncing shared folders, I feel businesses everywhere that use OneDrive would benefit GREATLY!!
        This would allow users to access the files from the shared folder as they do now, as well as access the files from OneDrive cloud - and the changes would sync from either direction, thus allowing users in office and out of…

        • Ability for OneDrive Admins to Flag Folders as "Do Not Sync"

          Ability for OneDrive Administrators to flag some folders in individual users cloud based OneDrive for Business libraries as “do not sync” so that the end-user cannot check them in the Next Gen Sync Client (NGSC) for synchronization to their local machine. The NGSC should honor that attribute and show the folder as “greyed out” – possibly with a hover over pop-up message stating that the folder cannot be synchronized locally because of IT policy.

          Options should be available for bulk application to all users OneDrive folders by specifying a folder name (or folder name pattern) to be flagged as non-synchronizable,…

          • Permission user folders

            Good work!
            We are testing the synchronization between different dividends in SharePoint linked to user accounts.
            We have encountered an unnecessary problem.
            When a user has no permissions for a folder, it appears with a red cross and sync message appears.

            In the mobile app, the folders for which the user is not authorized does not appear, so it should be.
            When do you plan to fix this?

                  • increase the file upload limit

                    Please increase the file upload limit from 15GB! With ever increasing file sizes from the media workflow, especially with 4K content, the 15GB limit can be quite a bummer at times!

                        • Local Disk Storage Limits

                          Save our users from themselves.

                          We desperately need a solution to limit how much data is synced to the local disk by the OneDrive Sync Client. In an Enterprise scenario, where it's beneficial to allow large amounts of storage in the cloud, there is often not enough local storage to accommodate a user's full data store. Selective sync doesn't satisfy organizational concerns about using up local disk space. Even files-on-demand is leaving a lot of trepidation at the management level. Users will typically just choose to sync everything without thinking of the consequences.

                          I propose an enforceable policy (GPO or…

                          • Improve the feature of synchronizing more than 100,000 items on a stable basis for OneDrive.

                            I am aware of the behavior the restriction mentioned that the sync performance will possibly deteriorate when the stored items in the library exceed 100,000 items more. However, I need to operate this process frequently so that I wish the feature will be improved enables sync more than 100,000 items on a stable basis as soon as possible.

                            Although I have concerns about if the synchronization is going to be impossible to proceed unexpectly, but so as MS described as "We are working on optimization of OneDrive to improve processing of many Libraries." below the Reference information.

                                When I set the synchronization into OneDrive for Business, the folder of [OneDrive - "tenant name"] is created. Although I am aware that this folder name can be changed by the admin's changing the tenant name, I hope that I will be able to set freely the name into the sync folder.

                                  ■Description(内容):
                                  現在、ライセンスに SharePoint Online が含まれない、または含まれていても有効にしていない状態で OneDrive for Business を利用する際、[サイトの設定] にアクセスすることができなくなっている。設定内の機能には直接 URL を入力してアクセス可能だが、不便なので OneDrive for Business の画面のどこかにリンクを設置するなど、アクセスをし易くしてほしい。

                                  We would inform you that we cannot access to the "Site Settings" without the license or permission of SharePoint Online when using OneDrive for Business. Although we can access the Settings by entering the URL directly, however, it does take a while to doing this process each time.

                                  Please improve the accessibility by setting up a link somewhere on the screen of OneDrive for Business.

                                  Thank…

                                  • Specifiy folder Language per user

                                    As the default Language of a OneDrive Site is set by location of your tenant, all our OneDrive Sites have English as default language. That means that all Folders, which are created by default (like Attachments, Notebooks, etc.) are also displayed in English. Please make it possible to specifiy the OneDrive Defauld language or the language for those Folders for individual users, because not everyone in our company is capable of speaking English.

                                    • Renable inheritance when removing limited users (remove users access from all files)

                                      In OneDrive, on a Document Library, you can go to library permissions, show limited users and remove a limited user. This appears to recursively remove the user access on all child objects in the library. This is definitely useful in the scenario e.g., I want to completely remove Bob's access to all files. The downside though is that currently, even if the remove on child object effectively leaves the object without unique permissions inheritance is not re-enabled. It would be beneficial to add a check during this removal to renable inheritance where appropriate (i.e., file and nearest parent with unique…

                                          記憶域メトリックスや言語設定、地域設定について URL を直接入力する必要がある。また、ライブラリの設定についてもこれまでは [サイトの設定] からアクセスしていたので、[従来の OneDrive に戻す] などの UI 変更を行う必要が発生した。
                                          これらは大変使い勝手が悪く、また、予告なくこのような大きな設定変更を実施する開発部門には不信感を持っている。
