  1. Allow purchase of more than 50gb of space

    Please allow more plans than just 50gb. I use onedrive for my family pictures and videos and 50gb is just not enough. I would be willing to pay 3/month if I could upgrade to 100gb.

  3. Know who accessed your files and how many times downloaded

    When we share a file, the following features should be shown:
    - Who accessed the file, how many times and when (date stamp)
    - If a file is downloaded, then the count of how many times it has been downloaded and by which user.

    Thank you.

  4. 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?

  6. bring back SMART FILES in OneDrive.

    Smart files were great. The explanation that it was confusing for ppl is a poor explanation - if so, then selective syncs would be so too. Bring back smart fils, make full sync the default, then make the smart files sync an option for those of use who know how to use the right click mouse button.

    Please bring this back. It was a defining feature of OneDrive that made it stand out from the others services. I could go on and on on why cloud store is better than local for 98% of files. Why smart files was smart,…

  7. View (and possibly change/update) photo comments on mobile

    Showing the photo comments would especially give greater value when sharing photos/folders.

  8. Offload large libraries to another drive

    Laptops don't always have the same amount of space as OneDrive offers. Would be great if you can allow certain libraries/directories to be offloaded to another disk such as a USB disk. This would mean that when selecting which folders to sync, you can also say WHERE they sync to instead of the default onedrive location. The folders "living" on another drive should appear in the one drive folder as normal however will reside on the other disk.

    Currently I can do this using a the command "mklink /J" to create a link. The problem however is that if you…

  9. Changing Computer

    When you change your computer I don't want to resync manually all my SharePoint libraries. This should be stored somewhere in the OneDrive profile on the cloud of the individual

  10. Submaps for every extra map you add

    Wouldn't it be a great idea when your (received) pictures gets a folder by it's own? For example: I have a lot of friends who sends tons of pictures every day. Everything will be in the same folder with your own made pictures, screenshots, etc. So my idea is as followed: Every folder (on your phone) you permitted to be uploaded to OneDrive gets it's own folder in the Camera folder. I currently have to search for a long time, until I've found my picture. Now, with this idea, you can grab them immediately without searching for ages! Look at…

  13. Allow account switching in OneDrive desktop app

    This feature was available in PRE-Windows 8 SkyDrive desktop application.

    I have two accounts: windows and windows phone. And there's absolutely no way for me to browse my phone camera pictures on my desktop right now by using OneDrive. I'm forced to use DropBox instead.

  14. Create 'Dropspace' to request files from none OneDrive User

    The ability to send a link to a none OneDrive user to 'Request' files. We would create an empty file and then send the link to a non OneDrive user to upload to.

  16. Make OneDrive FAST as Dropbox

    Make onedrive FAST as Dropbox is. a TXT file is synced in split second in DB while OneDrive needs 25 seconds to do the same (same PC; same SSD, same internet). While updating change in few kb Excel file OneDrive take 15-30 seconds to save and close. Endless "processing changes..."

  17. Onedrive is a total piece of garbage programmed by total morons, I'd love to list the countless reasons but I only have so much space to typ

    You arbitrarily change the amount of space people can use, you create duplicate files for no reason other then to waste the limited free space you deal out so people who don't know or look will just think they need to buy more space, not realizing that there are three or more of every single picture in the onedrive. I suggest you either A) totally shut down and stop pretending you know what you're doing, or B) code your s*%t properly, add checks and confirmations for duplicate creation, if the file is a picture and youre confused about which one…

  18. Photo Browsing

    Scanning through photos on OneDrive on any platform or the web is a nightmare. Especially in my cameraroll. It takes forever to preview the images and find the ones I'm looking for. Theres no "jump to date" or anything so right now I can barely go back and look for anything.
