  1. Fix files disappearing from OneDrive.

    The title says it all. Random files just keep getting dumped in the Recycle Bin.

  3. Remove the anonymous link sharing expiration limit with internal users

    Please remove the anonymous link sharing expiration limit with internal users for OneDrive and SharePoint. The expiration limit should only be applied to people outside the organization as the settings suggest.

  4. sharing

    In some cases when I share files by sending a link to a specific e-mail address, the receipent is asked to sign in, even though I always use "Receipents don't need a Micr. account" option.

    (while in web interface:) I right-click a file, then Share and then enter receipents mail address in the "Invite People" tab (not Get a link).
    The problem doesn't happen if use Get a link option from the second tab.

  5. Unable to play videos on the onedrive.live.com website

    When trying to play any video files (.mp4, .wmv) on the onedrive.live.com website, an error message shows up stating "Sorry, there was a problem loading the video.", even though these videos can be played without any issues in the desktop and mobile OneDrive apps.

    Link to a video on my OneDrive where you can see this: https://1drv.ms/v/s!AvSN6tDNHWpYkJMF4JZdo-ey04GqEg

  6. PDF annotations

    Is anyone experiencing the problems within the newest version of OneDrive for Business iPad application. I use it for reading and annotating PDF files with iPad. Since I updated the app version all my existing files with annotations started experiencing this issue - All old text annotations became duplicated and now seem to be permanent on my files. If I go to delete an old text note or a duplicate of it it keeps reappearing and multiplied. I find few layers of same old note in same position on my file. My pasted from camera roll pictures became stamps and…

  7. Allow restoring my OneDrive folders/files from history after virus encryption attack

    Malware such as Zepto are destroying data in Onedrive by encrypting them and requesting a ransom for their recovery. I have been a victim & so have many One Drive users as per increasing discussions online. It will be very helpful if we could restore previous version of stored files, after cleaning the computer from the virus. Currently I might lose thousands of files and hard work...

  8. fix video streaming issues

    Since the most recent update last week I am unable to watch any videos on my phone on the OneDrive app. I cannot use any feedback feature on the app simply because there isn't one. Shaking it doesn't work. There's no option in the menu for it to be activated either. Honestly, with the amount of issues I'm having with the OneDrive app, I am heavily considering cancelling my subscription and moving my business use somewhere else. What good is the app if it doesn't work and lots of features go to the personal customers and business customers (who are…

  9. Ability to switch between update rings (Production to Enterprise or Enterprise to Production).

    Microsoft says that you can define the Rings in Group Policy. Sadly this is NOT completely accurate. Here is what you can do:
    • If you are in the Production ring (18.06x) and you want to go to the Enterprise ring (18.025.x).
    • You add the registry setting as they say here:
    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/use-group-policy-to-control-onedrive-sync-client-settings-0ecb2cf5-8882-42b3-a6e9-be6bda30899c?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US#enableenterpriseupdate
    Section: “Delay updating OneDrive.exe until the second release wave”.
    • You will not be able to change your version until the Enterprise ring gets a version higher then the one you already have. Which means you will have to wait around 60 days…

    Please add the ability…

  11. OneDrive web actually moves no more than 100-200 files

    This is a bug that has been staying for 4+ years and it really grinds my gears.

    When I select more than 100 photos and videos in "Camera Roll" folder and move them to another folder, OneDrive moves actually no more than 100-200 files, then tells wrong that it has moved all the files I selected in upper right corner.

    This bug doesn't rely on browser and subscription (I'm currently on Office 365 for Students and tried in Chrome, Opera, Firefox, Edge), but probably it's specific to my account.

  12. support for RW2 files. I won't renew my 365 subscription (in october) if you don't have this support.

    Support for RAW files is basic for any drive in the cloud. I can't believe Microsoft has no support.
    I won't renew my subscription if this bug is not fixed.

  13. Not everyone lives in the United States. Please provide dd/mm/yyyy date format.

    Support have confirmed that this feature is not available. Strange from an organisation that is supposed to be international.

  14. File name location details

    I have collection of more than 10 thousands files. Often times I forget their location. I can search for a keyword and often find the file. But I don't know which folder it resides. To find this, I click the file details, it has "file name", "modified", "size" and "location". The "location" value is different from the "file name" value, however, location is neither show the full path not it is a link to the folder where the file resides. Location is obviously is just the "folder name", not the full path. Please make it useful.

  16. Rollback NTFS only change. Allow ReFS.

    Onedrive client stopped supporting other filesystems (incl ReFS) except NTFS and HFS+ (mac client). This was done without notifying end users.

    An UserVoice was already created for this (Allow OneDrive folder to be on a Storage Space (ReFS File System)), but a Microsoft employee simply rejected it without justifying the sudden change.

    @Douglas Pearce: Dont reject this uservoice without giving justification. The link you provided in the previous uservoice doesnt explain why Onedrive for Mac works in HFS+ or that Onedrive for business (but same client) can still be synced to ReFS.

  19. Onedrive currently has a bug where you are unable to sign in, or disconnect onedrive leaving you stuck without your files syncing.

    OneDrive Icon is grey, no way to disconnect as the "disconnect" button is grey, no way to sign in.

    Please allow us to Uninstall onedrive, mail, and all other first party apps so that we can reset them. I've had bugs like this with every single one.

    This happened after switching from a Microsoft account to a local account and then back again. This was done to fix the account bug in the Mail app introduced by the latest update.

    Tried multiple answers but nothing has worked.
    I tried deleting onedrive folder, restarting onedrive, resetting onedrive.
    Looks like the only…
