  1. Add Back .txt Text Editor Option

    On OneDrive.com, add back the option to edit text files. Starting around 12/20/17, the option to Open and edit a text file by right clicking disappeared.

    However, it's possible to get back to the editor by using part of the link below.

    https://onedrive.live.com/?v=TextFileEditor

    Please fix this bug as this is a key functionality to edit simple text files.

    • Office files OneDrive sync issues since latest update of Windows

      Since the last Windows update, I have seen inconsistent OneDrive behavior with Office files:
      - Even though "Use Office 2016 to sync office files" is turned off, Office still tries to directly upload files to OneDrive when closing a file
      - Much frequent occurrences of the "You now have two copies of a file" when saving office files, which force to waste time in cleaning up the duplicated files.

      For the first issue, I temporarily changed the "Use Office 2016 to sync office files" to on, then back to off. That seemed to have stopped the upload to OneDrive while…

      • Please fix MIcrosoft update bug...

        OneDrive creates a temp file called aria-debugger. It's huge...40 g bytes, and keeps growing, grabbing all the free space on the hard drive.

        • onedrive web always stalls after uploading few files - hangs on "uploading *** items" for ever (win 10 chrome and Edge)

          i am trying to upload my photos to onedrive via the web. I dont do it via the windows sync app as I dont want this folder synced as its too big.

          I know all the fragile problems with onedrive, and can confirm that:

          all my file names are < 8 chars + ".jpg"
          None of the filenames nor folders have any chars other than ascii
          There is only one level deapth (a directory with files in it)
          I have 300GB of space left in my 1TB (so its not a space issue).
          Files are all < 10MB, so its…

          • Video shows black screen on Android OneDrive app

            When I play videos one the Android OneDrive app it just shows a black screen. The sound works fine. Everything is up to date and the video is a mp4 (This problem extends to all videos in various formats).
            I'm using a OnePlus 3T (Oreo), but it seems that there are many people with different phones with this problem according to a quick search.

            • Fix OneDrive

              The last two weeks or so the free space on my hard drive shrinks by about 4g bytes a day. I found files in the temp folder called aria-debugger that are around 40 g bytes each, and they keep getting bigger. I can't uninstall OneDrive, and disabling it doesn't stop the problem. As the files are constantly growing, they can't be erased, and even if they are erased, new ones are created. I understand that the last update had the bug in OneDrive. Please fix and advise.

              • Fix continuously restarting on Windows 10

                On my two Windows 10 Pro computers, the OneDrive application continually terminates and then restarts. Each time it restarts, it puts a ghost image in the taskbar area. When I come back to my computer after a while, I have a whole row of these images in the taskbar.

                Can we get this fixed? I am not the only one, based on the forum.

                One of these computers is a fresh, clean install of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update that I did 2 weeks ago, and the other computer is my Surface Pro 4 that was upgraded in place…

                • Show photos or play videos without log in to OneDrive

                  It is possible to give free files or directories at One Drive to share this.
                  If I send this link to my friend, he can't see the whole screen at mobile without blue line on the top.
                  Why he shall log in to see the full screen?
                  This is pure nonsens.

                  • UPN change

                    Changing of UPN in AD/AzureAD causes separation and sync issues with OneDrive for Business. No other Office 365 application appears affected. Currently no way to force a UPN change on the OneDrive side and we are being told that re-syncing the library is the only way to fix the issue.

                    • Blocked

                      Hi there,

                      I have not used OneDrive in a very long time. Just thought I will download it as I have recently purchased a xbox one.

                      My account seems to be blocked due to this issue. How can I resolve this?

                        • Fix date taken on videos uploaded from mobile or pc

                          Date taken for videos is being interpreted incorrectly when displayed on ONE Drive. Modified date is usually correct. When the video is downloaded to my PC in the synched one drive folder, Windows Photo Gallery displays the date correctly. See the text file attached which is a copy of a forum post that describes the issue.

                            • SVN issues with on demand sync

                              With the new client on fall creators update (the one with on demand sync) basically no SVN clients I've tried can see that a svn versioned folder is actually versioned.

                              VS can, but them it has it own share of problems not opening some files inside a onedrive folder (when on demand is active).

                              Even if I chose to make the folder always synced it makes no difference. The only think I tried that solved the problem was deactivating on demand syncing from the client altogether.

                              For now I've had problems with Visual Studio and SVN clients opening files from…

                              • One Drive takes over of all computers resources

                                The One Drive seems to me is a little bit disaster, since the time I started using it the computers became practically unusable as you can see from the screenshot it takes over of all computers resources.

                                I specifically bought a laptop to use Microsoft services, one of which is One Drive, but instead of convenience, I got one headache. I already added the memory and as it turns out I need to update the hard drive, which is not only expensive but and the little bit complicated. My computers have become the endless consumers of nerves and money.

                                You…

                                      При запуске onedrive выходит сообщение, что возникла проблема с файлами приложения. Скачайте приложение на компьютер и попробуйте ещё раз. Но после удаления программы и установки onedrive на следующий день всё повторяется.

                                      • How to return these items to their original folders

                                        I loaded them to transfer them, but didn't work so want to unload them from the drive.
