    • Please fix MIcrosoft update bug...

      OneDrive creates a temp file called aria-debugger. It's huge...40 g bytes, and keeps growing, grabbing all the free space on the hard drive.

        Enable selecting the destination freely when saving attachment files from Outlook 2016.

        ■Description(内容):
         Outlook 2016 から添付ファイルを OneDrive に保存する際に、現在は保存先のフォルダーを指定する項目がなく、自動的に OneDrive for Business の上位の階層へ保存される。

        I am concerned that the attachment file is automatically saved in the top hierarchy of OneDrive for Business when saving any attachment files from Outlook 2016, because there is no function available to specify the folder or the save destination at present.

        In order to manage files more easily, please implement a function that allows the users to select the destination freely when…

          • 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.

              • Searching within OneDrive for Business allow for direct download - Already functions like this within free OneDrive

                Searching within OneDrive for Business allow for direct download - Already functions like this within free OneDrive.

                Searching within OneDrive (free) allows you to rightclick or tick a file to initiate direct download or other interactions without needing to open the file itself.
                This feature is not present in OneDrive for Business. The context menu is missing unless you navigate through the file structure manually.
                Please replicate the same functionality to OneDrive for Business.

                      現在、ライセンスに SharePoint Online が含まれない、または含まれていても有効にしていない状態で OneDrive for Business を利用する際、[サイトの設定] にアクセスすることができなくなっている。設定内の機能には直接 URL を入力してアクセス可能だが、不便なので OneDrive for Business の画面のどこかにリンクを設置するなど、アクセスをし易くしてほしい。

                      We would inform you that we cannot access to the "Site Settings" without the license or permission of SharePoint Online when using OneDrive for Business. Although we can access the Settings by entering the URL directly, however, it does take a while to doing this process each time.

                      Please improve the accessibility by setting up a link somewhere on the screen of OneDrive for Business.

                          Lately, I am considering to use a Command prompt to indicate users about downloading items in OneDrive for Business.

                          In order to deploy this scenario, the URL of the item on OneDrive for Business needs to be [http] instead of [https]. Therefore, I hope the feature will be improved to issue [http] as URL of items as well.

                            • Local Disk Storage Limits

                              Save our users from themselves.

                              We desperately need a solution to limit how much data is synced to the local disk by the OneDrive Sync Client. In an Enterprise scenario, where it's beneficial to allow large amounts of storage in the cloud, there is often not enough local storage to accommodate a user's full data store. Selective sync doesn't satisfy organizational concerns about using up local disk space. Even files-on-demand is leaving a lot of trepidation at the management level. Users will typically just choose to sync everything without thinking of the consequences.

                              I propose an enforceable policy (GPO or…

                                  • Third View options on the iphone ios app!!?

                                    In the desktop version there is a Third View option which allows me to choose Photos view.

                                    I choose this and want this for number of reasons.

                                    I am dyslexic and prefer to see the image being displayed preview on the folder. Like it used to be.

                                    Hugely motivated by fact i use onedrive daily and have the images displayed on my iphone Plus.
                                    I need the 3rd option to view files as photos.
                                    I expect responsive comfortable images displayed.. like before.. now the wider gaps look awful.

                                    Lastly like many i pay to use Onedrive and requesting another View…

                                      Now we are using the Collaborative Editing function in the Excel Client, however, an error message "Unable to save work due to errors" is frequently displayed. What are we concerned about is the occurrence of this events requires the users to redo the same work because due to the updated contents are discarded. Since the collaborative editing function is still unstable to use, it affects our business operation by now.

                                      • Fix the "All files up to date" when they're not status report

                                        When OneDrive opens it initially reports all files up to date before it has checked. Consequently this status is often wrong. The status is important. That's why OneDrive reports it. So it should be correct. The initial status should be "checking"

                                        • Search from iOS Files app

                                          With the iOS Files app integration in version 10.1, documents stored in OneDrive can be browsed or opened from other apps. But either in the Files app itself or in other apps with the open-file dialog, searching does not return any results from OneDrive and users have to manually navigate through the folders to find the files and this is extremely cumbersome. Other major cloud storage providers like Google drive and Dropbox all support the search feature in Files app.
