  1. Please stop automatically creating folders (like attachments, pictures, documents) in my OneDrive.

    It is so annoying, every time i delete the folders, it pops up again. If i need a folder, i will make it myself. This is the only thing that keeps me from making OneDrive my top cloud storage solution.

    • OneDrive application should ask to select folders to sync during account sign in setup before syncing begins

      When signing in to OneDrive desktop application for the first time please give option of what folders you would like to sync instead of without asking just syncing everything to my PC. This is very frustrating as I have to quickly stop syncing all folders and delete all the folders I do not want to see on my PC. It would be so much cleaner if you would just simply ask first during the app sign in process. Also when an account is unlinked and linked again OneDrive should ask what folders you want to see on your PC before…

        ​OneDrive for Business のファイル オンデマンドなど、新しい機能やサービスについて、事前通知もなく突然動作が切り替わると、ユーザーは何か問題が発生したのではないかと思ってしまう。新しい機能については事前に通知をして、有効にするかどうかはユーザーに選択をさせてほしい。

        Currently, we are concerned that the feature or service will be enabled automatically when a new function is available such as "Files On-Demand" in ​OneDrive for Business.

        In order to prevent the unexpected impact or confusion, please provide the ability for the administrator to get a notification and set enable/disable the new feature in advance.

        Thank you for your consideration.

        • Bring back the 15GB free online storage in OneDrive

          Google Drive offers 15GB while MEGA offers 50 frickin' gigabytes for free users! 5GB is laughable especially for a cloud company like Microsoft.

          • OneDrive on Kindle Fire HD 8

            I use OneDrive a lot especially through my Apple devices and recently I got a new Kindle Fire HD 8 only to learn they don't support OneDrive or any Word programs linked to OneDrive. I'm a writer and it's important to me that I can write as much as I read on my Kindle so if there could be a way to provide those apps for the Kindle Fire that would be great.

            • Add .adoc file type to the "text and code" file viewers in OneDrive to support AsciiDoc file format

              I'd like to be able to store and view AsciiDoc files in OneDrive, using the .adoc file type. Ideally these would be added to the "text and code" category so they could be previewed and edited as per a .txt file.

              • fix broken links to moved or renamed files in a graceful manner

                I am looking for a more useful way to handle broken links - links to files that have been moved or renamed. If a file is moved or renamed, and someone else with access clicks on the old link, it fails badly with no useful information. Either there needs to be a way to link ahead to the new file location (a breadcrumb) or give a useful way to view other files from the same location or the same person.

                • OneDrive should work like any external backup. Automatically backup C-drive w/o duplicating itself on File Explorer adding to storage space.

                  OneDrive should work like any external backup. Automatically backup C-drive w/o duplicating itself on File Explorer adding to storage space. If OneDrive does this already, the setting for this is not very intuitive.

                  • Simplify and harmonize the name of uploaded photos/video/screenshot through phones apps

                    When using OneDrive to upload photos from Android phone there are automatically renamed IMG_YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS while using a IOS phone there are renamed YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS_IOS.

                    The problem is that if you want to share photos/videos with someone that do not use the same OS than you, then there will not be sorted in a fashion way. Dropbox, by example, simply rename photos/videos/screenshot YYYMMDD - HHMMSS independently the app you are using and this is much more user friendly.

                    Can you simplify this feature, harmonise the naming or just let the user choose?

                                    Currently, I am concerned that you cannot see the image when opening the Image library in the site from the SharePoint App because of an error occurs after the OneDrive Apps will be automatically launched. Therefore, I hope the feature will be improved that enables viewing the Image library properly without the OneDrive Apps.

                                    Thank you for your continued support.

                                        • Prevent garbled filenames when previewing zip folders even it is double-byte characters.

                                          ■Title(件名):OneDrive for Business や SharePoint Online の zip フォルダーのプレビュー表示について

                                          Prevent garbled filenames when previewing zip folders even double-byte characters.
                                          ***************
                                          ■Description(内容):
                                          ​OneDrive for Business や SharePoint Onlineで zip フォルダーをプレビュー表示した際、zip フォルダー内のファイル名の文字コードが "Shift-JIS" の場合に、文字化けしないよう改善してほしい。​

                                          When previewing the zip folder in OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online, I recognized that the garbled characters in the file name have been seen (the character code is "Shift-JIS") in the zip folder. Therefore, please improve this behavior so as not to garbled even the file name contains double-byte characters.

                                          Thank you for your consideration.
