  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.

            • Duplicate files/photos ( duplicates )

              Like other suggestions I would like a way to not have duplicate files/photos, to save space.

              Can we have some specific way to:

              1) run a "duplicate" search that can automatically delete files/photos based on a name, size and date
              2) search for duplicates and then list them all in name order, showing name, size and date to then give option to review then delete
              3) a file compare search for similar looking files, then the option to delete one(s)

                  • 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.

                      • ChromeOS is continuing to grow.....why does it still not have OneDrive access? I hate Google Drive....

                        It will not allow the app to mount to my devices file management system. Sucks that we get penalized for purchasing a non windows device when it’s counterparts (Android) get access to OneDrive. Please allow support to ChromeOS. I do not wish to switch to Google Drive.

                        • Third

                          This is a simple request surely?!

                          View options should be like this:
                          ************************************
                          L i s t (Text view)

                          T i l e (grey folder files)

                          P h o t o (displaying images)

                          OneDrive team need to add a third View option to have photo mode so displays the photos not these only grey folders.

                          Fix the wasted spacing / gaps between each file.

                          Onedrive desktop browser version has the third view option which i use daily.
                          Mobile iphone App version should have same options in right corner! Photos displayed compact & responsive.

                          • Improve OneDrive setup

                            When we set up OneDrive it looks like Desktop, Pictures and Documents automatically synch with OneDrive but in order to get Music, Downloads and other folders to sync you have to either move the root folder location (folder properties Location tab) into OneDrive or every time you download something, it has to be manually copied into a OneDrive folder. It would be nice if when we set up OneDrive we could choose all folders that should be moved to the OneDrive folder as the default save location. Make this more automatic and simple all in one place in OneDrive settings.…

                                Please allow people to move a shared onedrive folder out of the root directory of OneDrive. It's pretty annoying people aren't able to move these folders or files.

                                  Cannot backup multiple drives or multiple computers on OneDrive. Google drive has this capability, which is extremely convenient. When do you expect to have it on OneDrive?

                                        I am a long-time PC user with better-than-average, although not expert, knowledge of how to operate a computer. I operate a Dell desktop for personal use. I also operate a Dell Inspiron 17” laptop for my consulting business. My operating system on both computers is Windows 10 obtained by subscribing to Windows 365 Home. Integrated in Windows 10 is a “cloud storage solution” app called OneDrive. It is “set up when I log into my Microsoft Account with storage available in File Explorer” as described by Microsoft.

                                        Sounds great so far. I am very interested in “cloud storage” to back…
