  1. calculate file/folder name length the same way SharePoint online does

    i believe SPO calculates folder/file names using a space = 1 character. onedrive for business sync app however calculates based on space = %20 = 3 characters. this results in *valid* files/folders from preventing the sync of the entire OD4B folder to a pc, even though there is nothing invalid.
    additionally, if this isn't fixed, you should return a full list of the offending files and perhaps offer to convert the space characters to _ or something to automatically resolve the issue.

  2. Have a way to easily share/add/remove a subset of files from a folder without creating copies.

    Very often I share only a subset of files to my family, i end up creating a new folder and adding those files there and end up using space. Give an easy way to select multiple files (i think you do this) within a folder, then give ability to add or remove pics to that picture stream and share that to family.

  3. Allow Browsing and Fetching Files from ANY connected Device

    There used to be a feature called "Fetch my files" which disappeared with Windows 8.1

    Please bring it back by allowing me to select not only "One Drive" and "This PC" from the drop-down in the Modern app, but allow me to select any of my other connected PCs (connected via the same Microsoft ID). I should be able to grab a file from any of them, no matter where I am in the world, as long as the other device is on and available.

    You get a similar function from the "HomeGroup" node in File Explorer on Desktop, but…

  4. Fix the network access from a corporate environment

    Playing with OneDrive for Business now, and man is it clunky in a business environment!

    The URL list to get to Office 365 (and OneDrive for Business) is huge. And random: some .jp, some .uk, why? I have no resources in those countries (I'm in Australia).
    Worse, The URL list is the same as the consumer URL list. That's plain crazy!

    Many businesses (including ours) actively block those consumer URLS, as a way of blocking corporate staff from accessing private email and web resources. It's a data leakage and security thing. You know - as implemented in most Corporate environments.

  5. Modify OneDrive for Business to do Metadata Sync

    Allow OneDrive for Business to behave the same way as OneDrive: ie, download all metadata first and don't necessarily do a full sync on a new machine. That way you can be up and running more quickly on a new box.

  13. add folder to onedrive

    I would like to make a suggestion to make shared folder available locally on PC. Currently, the business user can only share a folder online, not able to make it locally available on the other person's PC (provided the other person is using Personal OneDrive). It would be great to see this possible.

  15. Dark Theme mobile

    A dark them for the mobile app possibly similar to the image below would be greatly appreciated. Honestly, i would only use it in this dark mode because it would look so much better.

  16. OneDrive

    Please ask Microsoft's Development to keep setting for "Files on Demand" in existing state (unchanged) when it launches future Windows updates. Reason is to avoid problem caused by Windows Update to Version 17.3.7301.0404 (4/5/2018). The Update switched on the "Files on Demand" feature in OneDrive. The switch was unexpected by users like me who had it switched off. Reason some users prefer keeping "off" is to keep files on their hard drive (in addition to online) – important when working without WiFi access and essential for using backup to external hard drive or cloud backup.
