  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…

    • Managing deleted One Drive (Sharepoint Document) files

      We have multiple users connected one SharePoint site and we use this sites to share documents. Due to our operational requirements we need to keep our files in the desktop PC. Therefore all the users in the organization we keep our files in the PC using OneDrive client.

      The issue is when a file get deleted from one end its effecting all other users in the network by moving all the deleted files to their desktop recycle bin. Which creates huge space of deleted files and make all the users to clean their recycle bin quite often. (For us avg…

      • Allow substituting a drive letter for the OneDrive for business folder(s).

        We have a database that uses drive letters for folders. Using the "subst" command will do just that, substitute a drive letter for the long OneDrive path. However, this creates the folder "System Volume Information" - a hidden, read-only system folder that crashes OneDrive every time! Make OneDrive ignore system files! Allow a drive letter substitution for the long OneDrive path!

        • 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...

              • 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!

                  • 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,…

                    • Enable Site level Sync

                      We want sync button to be enabled at Site level rather than doclib level and the onedrive wizard can help us choose document libraries or folders specific to a site we want to sync with PC. For organizations like us where we have few 100's of sites created per division and department it would be tedious to choose each document library related to user and click on sync button . It would really serve us well if we have ability to sync at site level and can automatically sync 100's of sites per needs of each department.

                              • 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?

                                  Currently, I am concerned that the users have a difficulty in changing the language settings due to they cannot understand other than their native languages in which set by tenant unit. So that, I hope the feature will be improved that allows the admin to individually select the language setting of OneDrive for Business in case of adding users.

                                  In addition to this,…

                                        Currently, we know that you can check which item you are setting notification settings from the user you set as the notification destination. After this, we plan to set a destination of notification more than 100 users, so that searching for notification items from users takes a huge amount of effort.

                                        Therefore, I hope you to implement a function that can search users for notification destination from items.

                                        Thank you for your continued support.

                                          In addition, not all users use Office 2016, so they are not able to edit the files at the same time.
