  1. Stop One Drive using disk memory by adding a CAHCE FOLDER!!!

    When I sync my files (30GB) that are saved in my One Drive folder on my PC, One Drive creates a separate cache file (of 30GB!!!) meaning anything I save in the One Drive folder is also saved in a cache folder.

    If I had 100GB of documents, I'd need 200GB of memory ... this is a CRAZY stupid waste of memory - making One Drive useless for me.

    • using new API to do resumable upload with conflict handle

      I post this problem in stackoverflow:
      http://stackoverflow.com/questions/28805408/onedrive-new-api-for-upload-conflict?noredirect=1#comment45914046_28805408

      the problem is:
      follow the steps in the api doc could not override(replace) the existing file.

      Is this a bug ?

        Yes, I can give you advise on Security issues and storage issues. I am using Ahsay software for data storage.  Ahsay software have unmatched security solutions. The data saved in Ahsay software is secured as comparable to other IT solutions. Ahsay software  encrypts your file names and your data is only stored. This feature can save your data from leakage and other breakdowns.

        • Office products on iPad/Android do not handle logging out well. Many users for one device

          There are several customers that I have worked with that have introduced tablets into the workflow but each user does not have their own device. The device is passed along as needed.

          This was happened in the medical and school environment,

          Users will open Word and create a document. Then store files in OneDrive for Business but then cannot log out of their Office 365 account.

          Many issues between Android and iOS to list here. This needs attention to keep user files confidential.

          • bad file check

            Hi:
            I post one question a while ago (http://goo.gl/QFCpdO).
            I didnt figure it out, and dont plan to spend more time on it.

            But then, I found one of your competitor having this tool called bad file check (https://www.dropbox.com/bad_files_check). I think that is a good idea, and if MS also develop one, users can then use this tool to do the self check.

            Cheers

            • Add support for authenticated proxies

              The OneDrive desktop client currently doesn't work on networks with authenticated proxies. This makes OneDrive useless in these kinds of environments.

              • Allow automatic upload of photos and video from mobile clients to OneDrive for Business

                Would like to see complete feature parity between OneDrive and OneDrive for Business - well except that the latter would have everything that OneDrive personal had plus some.

                Automatic upload of photos and video is one of the OneDrive Personal features that should be added to OneDrive for Business. I realize the technologies are very different on the backend, but it needs to be done.

                • backup

                  I use CloudBacko (http://free.cloudbacko.com?r=1d) as an automatic backup solution, then I do some manual backup once a month on a local hard drive. But I'd like to skip that manual thing and get instead a second automatic solution.

                                  • Fix the following security issue on OneDrive

                                    The file download links in the browser download history works after the user signs out of their Microsoft account. It looks like...the file download does not require user authentication.

                                    Consider this situation.....
                                    I am using a public PC. I login, download a personal file. Read it, delete the file permanently from the hard drive, logout and leave.

                                    Now some anonymous person uses the same PC. He can go to browser file download history. Of course the file is not in the PC Hard Drive any more. But if he clicks on the link in the download history, the file downloads.
