  1. 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)

      • 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.

        • Share OneDrive space with family

          My OneDrive has 220GB. I want to share these space with my wife to let her upload photos for us. I have created a folder, shared to her and given her full access but when she tries to upload files to it it say her OneDrive is full.
          Apparently she has used up her free 5GB.
          Well that’s fine but I’m paying for over 200GB.
          Why can’t you allow me to share my space with my wife?
          I have talked to one of your representatives and I was told the only way to share space with someone is to buy…

          • OneDrive background colour should be black as it was before!

            There is many messages about same thing.
            Why don't you do something about it?
            You just can't look pictures on white background :(
            I'm going to find new cloudservice!

              Visio Online で編集できるかを判断することがファイルを見ただけでは判別が出来ないため、 Visio Online で編集が可能なファイルであるかどうかを調べる方法や、公開資料を用意してほしい。​

              Currently, we are not able to get know whether the file can be edited or not by just looking the file in Visio Online.

              Since we have a difficulty in finding the editable file, we hope the system will provide us the ability to confirm whether it is an editable file or not. Additionally, it would be great if the public information will be informed of the details for Visio Online feature very soon.

              Thank you for your…

                • Backup multiple drives and computers

                  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?

                        One drive is creating albums for me wish Spanish title/dates. Unfortunately i am nowhere near being Hispanic although my last name is Spanish based. How about giving us a language option somewhere or a button to stop one drive from making me these albums???

                          Sometimes I want to be able to have a group of people share their photos of e.g. a common trip, so I share a link of a folder with them and enable them to change the content of the folder, BUT they cannot upload their pictures unless they authenticate with a Microsoft Account (a number of people don't have one and don't want to create one just for this) - so in this scenario I have to use GDrive ...

                                I will open my suggestion with a story of what happened today.

                                I wanted to make sure some files I had were properly backed up. I knew I had OneDrive through my University, so it seemed like a good place to start.

                                I get the OneDrive folder all set up on my laptop. I drag the folder with everything I needed backed up to OneDrive. A second later it occurs to me that I'm a fool for moving it and not copy-pasting, but ctrl-z wasn't doing anything so I copy it from the OneDrive folder (after checking all the files…

                                • WTH is MS doing right now?

                                  When you upload multiple files to a folder of which some files are already in that folder the error comes like you would expect. Your options are "replace all" or "keep all", but nothing like "skip those files"...
                                  It's not a big issue, but there are many more of those "not big issues" when using Microsoft products... At the moment it seems like Microsoft tries it best to be the worst. Just everything they do is so terribly wrong in so many ways...

                                  • Encryption at rest for personal onedrive

                                    Please please enable encryption at rest for personal onedrive accounts too. This is the only thing missing here. I will be forced to move to Dropbox if encryption at rest is not available for onedrive personal

                                      • Allow AD synced users to change language

                                        Currently, users synchronized with company local AD via Azure AD are not able to change their language in OneDrive or any other places via settings. Users should be able to change that and override the AD language setting, which is usually not used in Active Diretories or is not accurate. More info: http://www.lieben.nu/liebensraum/2015/03/change-office-365-portal-language-for-synced-users/
