      OneDrive for Business の同期を行っている際、ファイル オンデマンド機能が無効の場合には、PDF のサムネイルが正しく表示されるが、ファイル オンデマンド機能を有効にすると、有効にしたタイミングで、サムネイル画像がクロップ(サムネイル画像の半分より上のみ表示) される。
      すべての端末で確認しており、本件については正しくサムネイルが表示されるように修正をお願いします。

      While synching OneDrive for Business, the PDF thumbnails are displayed correctly when the Files On-Demand feature is turned off.
      However, there is a problem that the PDF thumbnails will be cropped (which means it displays only upper half of thumbnails) if the Files On-Demand was turned on. This behavior is confirmed on all devices.

      Therefore, we hope this behavior will be corrected to display…

      • On-Demand files: invalid ms-dos function

        Before on-demand files was synchronization ok.
        I have junction directory link in OneDrive folder to second hard-drive folder. The files are marked with syncing arrows, but they are not syncing. When I select file and choose "Always keep on this device", it shows "Invalid MS-DOS function" message.

          • Group Your Individual Work OneDrive Folder with your Corporate/Sites OneDrive on the Desktop Client

            Currently I have to navigate to two separate places. It would be nice if all my work related company files whether they be more individual or shared be grouped in one folder/drive.

            I think Google Drive File Stream's structure where one has "My Drive" and "Team Drives" is easier to understand and these are both contained in the the same folder/drive.

            In short it would be nice if OneDrive lived up to it's name and all work related files were stored in OneDrive on my computer. I'm on a Mac, but believe the same structure exists in Windows as well.

            • 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:

              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…

                        • enable encryption at rest of files in personal onedrive

                          Hi, I would appreciate if Microsoft could implement encryption at rest for personal Onedrive files. To be honest, I am a fan of Onedrive and I could see how it has become much better over the years. The only thing that is holding it back for many personal consumers is the lack of encryption at rest. It makes Onedrive look very dated in the light of its competitors who are rapidly growing market share.

                          I understand that similar requests have been raised over the years, but still no action yet. At least give users an explanation please.

                            • CPU usage is very high with 10.14 Mojave beta

                              OneDrive app 18.091.0506.0007 with MacOS 10.14 beta 18A326g on MacBook Pro ... I have noticed that the OneDrive app when started on boot pulls significant CPU time as well as associated energy usage (fan runs continuously). This draw continues after OneDrive completes initial sync. If I quite the app and then restart app, CPU and energy usage drops to a couple of percent which is what I observe with macOS 10.3.5 on my iMac.

                                PowerShell のスクリプトにて監査ログを取得した際に、取得したログ情報を OneDrive for Business の UI 上に出力する機能を提供してほしい。
                                ローカル PC 上にエクスポートするのではなく、Web 上に保存できるようにしてほしい。

                                We hope you to provide the feature to export the log information to OneDrive for Business UI when we acquire the audit log by running PowerShell script.

                                Saving the log information on the web is preferable to exporting it on the local PC.

                                Thank you for your consideration.

                                • Sorting of photos in my own albums

                                  It's not possible to sort and rearrange photos in onedrive albums. They can be sorted in files but when creating an album of your own the photos are mixed again. While using traditional photoalbums everyone wants to clue the the photos in a certain order. Do you agree?? Is is impossible to put into practice in onedrive albums, too???

                                    We would like to inform you about the unstable performance of Restore feature in OneDrive for Business.

                                    Even though we specified the date when restoring items, the data of items was not completely restored to the state of specified date. We had to redo the restoring processes again and it took hours to be completed.

                                    For proper management of items, I hope you to improve the performance of the Restore…

                                      With newly announced "Restore to OneDrive" feature in 2018, we can restore whole OneDrive for Business to specified date and time within the past 30 days. However, current settings does not allow users to restore specific items in a folder, so for improvement of usability and manageability, it is nice if the feature is implemented to restore older or deleted…

                                      • More granular settings for Files On Demand

                                        I want to be able to disable files on demand for my personal OneDrive for Business folder, but enabled for all the SharePoints I'm syncing down. This is not possible as of 2018.06.13.

                                        I'd wish for more granular settings for Files On Demand, on a per SharePoint / OneDrive folder basis.

                                        • Stop restoring long deleted files

                                          OneDrive has a horrible habit of restoring long deleted files and I know the cause. I commission one of my clients laptops manually and therefore logon as my account to install software. OneDrive is synchronised on this computer. I then typically don't logon for months but when I do, OneDrive assumes that the files found locally are new and re-synchronises them back even though they were deleted afterwards on another computer. This might not seem like a big problem except today is restored an old script with a similar name which had been deleted. I didn't spot this and ran…
