  1. Allow substituting a drive letter for the OneDrive for business folder(s).

    We have a database that uses drive letters for folders. Using the "subst" command will do just that, substitute a drive letter for the long OneDrive path. However, this creates the folder "System Volume Information" - a hidden, read-only system folder that crashes OneDrive every time! Make OneDrive ignore system files! Allow a drive letter substitution for the long OneDrive path!

      • shared by me

        Could you add a menu "Shared by me" (similar as "Shared with me") in OneDrive web interface on the left side menu?

        More about the user need: on OneDrive, files and folder are shared "only you" by default but you can share files/folders hidden in folders or sub-folders which stay unshared. Over time it becomes very hard to see what you shared, thus having this page view of all files/folders "shared by me" would be very convenient for users...

          ■Description(内容):
          EICAR ファイルによる検証の結果、ウイルスに感染したファイルをアップロードしようとすると、OneDrive for Business を含む SharePoint Online 上へのアップロードが完了し、その後、ファイルがスキャンされて、ウイルスを含むと判定されるとダウンロードや共有ができなくなる動作であると考えられることを確認した。
          ウイルスがクラウド上にアップロード可能ということについて問題があると考えており、アップロード後、スキャンされてウイルスと判定されるまでのわずかな間でも同期やダウンロードなどができる可能性があることはセキュリティ上のリスクである。

          As a result of EICAR file verification, once uploading to OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online is completed tentatively in case if you try to upload a virus-infected file. Then the files are scanning and when the file is defective, you cannot download and share the files eventually.

          However, I believe there is the problem that the infected files can be uploaded to the cloud once. It is a security risk concerns…

            • increase the file upload limit

              Please increase the file upload limit from 15GB! With ever increasing file sizes from the media workflow, especially with 4K content, the 15GB limit can be quite a bummer at times!

                • Face Recognition & Share Face Collections

                  Face recognition and tagging would be incredibly useful! Because whenever I take a photo of a friend or a family member, it will be able to recognize them and puts their photos in their own face collection which then I will be able to share their face collection with them.

                  This way, all my friends and family members will instantly get notification from OneDrive whenever I take a photo of them. and they can see it in their OneDrive or Photos App on Windows without me having to create an Album for each event, put their photo in that album…

                    • Please stop automatically creating folders (like attachments, pictures, documents) in my OneDrive.

                      It is so annoying, every time i delete the folders, it pops up again. If i need a folder, i will make it myself. This is the only thing that keeps me from making OneDrive my top cloud storage solution.

                        • Ability for OneDrive Admins to Flag Folders as "Do Not Sync"

                          Ability for OneDrive Administrators to flag some folders in individual users cloud based OneDrive for Business libraries as “do not sync” so that the end-user cannot check them in the Next Gen Sync Client (NGSC) for synchronization to their local machine. The NGSC should honor that attribute and show the folder as “greyed out” – possibly with a hover over pop-up message stating that the folder cannot be synchronized locally because of IT policy.

                          Options should be available for bulk application to all users OneDrive folders by specifying a folder name (or folder name pattern) to be flagged as non-synchronizable,…

                          • Have the capability to scan directly to a shared folder on the phone app.

                            Being able to quickly scan a document to one of your "owned" OneDrive folders is a great feature (While you are in the folder all you do is press "+" then the scan symbol.) You even have the option to name it. However, this feature within "shared" folders is not available. it would be even more powerful if you could grant others permission to use this productive scan feature in a folder you "shared" with them.

                            • Enable Site level Sync

                              We want sync button to be enabled at Site level rather than doclib level and the onedrive wizard can help us choose document libraries or folders specific to a site we want to sync with PC. For organizations like us where we have few 100's of sites created per division and department it would be tedious to choose each document library related to user and click on sync button . It would really serve us well if we have ability to sync at site level and can automatically sync 100's of sites per needs of each department.

                                  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.

                                    ​OneDrive for Business のファイル オンデマンドなど、新しい機能やサービスについて、事前通知もなく突然動作が切り替わると、ユーザーは何か問題が発生したのではないかと思ってしまう。新しい機能については事前に通知をして、有効にするかどうかはユーザーに選択をさせてほしい。

                                    Currently, we are concerned that the feature or service will be enabled automatically when a new function is available such as "Files On-Demand" in ​OneDrive for Business.

                                    In order to prevent the unexpected impact or confusion, please provide the ability for the administrator to get a notification and set enable/disable the new feature in advance.

                                    Thank you for your consideration.

                                        OneDrive for Business 上に、​OneNote Online の保存先としてノートブックというフォルダーが自動で作成されるが、自分で作成したものではないためユーザーが削除してしまい、ファイルが失われる事例もあると思う。そのため、このようなフォルダーは削除できない、または非表示にするような動作にしてほしい。

                                        Now, a folder named "Notebook" is automatically created on OneDrive for Business when saving OneNote Online files. However, since it is not a folder that the owners created by itself, they may accidentally delete them. Which means there is concern that OneNote files will be deleted unintentionally.

                                        Therefore, I hope the feature to be improved that enables to invalidate the deletion of the "Notebook" folder or to hide from the screen.
