  1. Color Folders Please

    It would be great to be able to have colorized folders - much easier to see and recognize "the color of important content."

        • Fix it so it works on Amazon Fire tablets!

          The App tells me there's no wifi when trying to use it on an Amazon Fire tablet. Nothing I have tried fixes the problem. The App is useless.

            • To add 1TB und 5TB to the options for increasing onedrive size without office.

              I own a Office 2016 Pro Plus license via the HUP and extending the storage to 1TB using the actual offers would result in downgrading my office licenses. Please add 1TB and 5 TB to the plans offered for onedrive w/o office licenses.

                • Clean Deletion of User Profiles

                  When deleting a user profile via System Properties, it will fail because the OneDrive - BusinessName folder can't be deleted. You then must manually delete the user profile folder. Update the logic behind the native profile deletion via Advance System Properties to compensate for the OneDrive - BusinessName folder and insure a clean profile deletion.

                        I moved to Onedrive to have all my photos available from any device. I also have Chromecast all over my house. However Apple devices do not have the abilty to Chromecast from Onedrive. This feature should definitely be added.

                        • 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.

                          • Photos section in OneDrive for Android should default to only crawling and showing pictures in the Pictures folder not all folders

                            Photos currently crawls every single picture format found in my entire OneDrive account. For those of us that are syncing all User folders such as Desktop, Documents, Music and Pictures, this Photos section on OneDrive for Android is useless. It crowds up and lists every single "picture" including web design graphics, backgrounds, icons, album art, etc. into the Photos section of the app. Have the photos section only display pictures found in the Pictures folder of OneDrive.

                                  ​運用として多くの外部ユーザーとアイテムを共有する際に使用している。
                                  匿名ユーザーにて誤ってファイルをアップロードしてしまった際でも、匿名アクセス リンクではファイルを削除することができないため不便に感じます。

                                  ユーザビリティの向上のため、匿名アクセス リンクであってもアイテムの削除をできるようにして欲しい。​​

                                  Currently, we are frequently using Anonymous access Links to share items with many External users. However, it is very inconvenient because the user who accesses from Anonymous access links cannot delete the file if the Anonymous user accidentally uploaded the file by mishaps.

                                  In order to improve the usability, please provide the ability that makes an external user possible to delete items even when accessing from Anonymous access links.

                                  Thank you…

                                  • Ability to install a specific version of OneDrive

                                    It would be nice to have the ability to install a specific version of OneDrive just like they have for Office 365 Click to Run. This would help when we troubleshoot issues. That way we can identify when the issue actually started and give exact information to Microsoft.

                                      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。
                                      このため、ファイルのアップロード時にファイルをスキャンし、ウイルスに感染している場合にはアップロード自体をブロックする動作としてほしい。

                                      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…

                                        If you are playing a game - OneDrive should cease updates, focus, and bandwidth allocation.
