  1. 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.

    • Why can't you let ME connect to Onedrive WHEN I WANT TO?

      I am so sick of this. EVERY time there is an update, that cloud icon is in my systray, and I have to right click it to quit onedrive.

      I KNOW how to connect to onedrive WHEN-I-WANT to upload or download something
      I do NOT want to risk some virus I may inadvertently get or click on getting to the few things I have in 'the cloud'.
      I don't TRUST you Micro$oft, so let ME DECIDE when to connect, stop making folders and albums of photos for me.
      I have three devices; two desktops and a laptop, all Win 10 …

        • OneDrive should have a feature to allow files to download at maximum connection speed.

          For example, when downloading large amounts of data, it'd be useful if I could download at 200 Mbps, rather than the 20 Mbps OneDrive is seemingly limiting me to.

          • Drag and Drop Feature should be "Copy and Drop"

            When I drag and drop, files are removed from my primary data folders and are "moved" to the OneDrive Folder. This makes my OneDrive Folder the primary repository for my data which I do not want. The feature works well but it should be "copy and drop" then the original files stay where they should be and the copied files act as a backups. The perfect solution would be to change OneDrive's structure where my active data folders could be marked and identified as "OneDrive Folders". Once identified, all files in that folder would become OneDrive Active and the need…

            • For SP library sync: Use the SharePoint icon in the tray

              EIther use the organisation icon used by Win10 on the quick launch, or use the SP icon m.. but the tray icon should not all be just different coloured clouds :)

                  • At initial setup STOP if file conflict present

                    Add a feature to ASK THE USER WHAT TO DO before implementing default rules for handling file conflicts.
                    I'm syncing a particular network folder to two machines.
                    Before asking me, onedrive created tons of duplicate files.
                    Now after stopping sync (to tame this disaster) I'm not able to change the settings because the first sync did not finish.
                    So now I literally have no way to prevent a mass data corruption.
                    Seriously guys, what were you thinking? (or smoking?)

                      • I'm using OneDrive with Directory Junctions and Links which is working smoothly except one small issue...

                        I'm using OneDrive with Directory Junctions and Links for a very long time. It is working very nice and this is the reason OneDrive is my primary cloud service. The issue I'm experiencing is happening when the space on the hard drive where the OneDrive folder is located is less than the actual OneDrive size (this is happening because the links does not take space on the hard drive, but the content itself is uploaded to OneDrive). When I want to choose which folders to sync in the app, it does not let me (remove or add folders) because it…

                            Whenever we edited in a document saved on onedrive, after saving the document on onedrive, it should be automatically updated on the same file on the pc wich has sync setup with onedriver. Currently it is not working.

                                • OneDrive and Office 2016

                                  The OneDrive application stays in a state of "processing changes" while I'm working on a word document. If I turn auto-save off, then it stops. And I can hit save and it'll process each time. But if auto-save is on, as soon as I make once change it turns to "processing changes" and stays there. And I can only assume that is part of why my battery doesn't make it as far as it used to (before this started happening)--I'm losing a minimum of an hour of battery time out of the whole day (estimated because I only noticed what's…

                                    • Folders with "Always keep on this device" set do not update!

                                      I check "Files on demand".

                                      For the data folder of my clipboard manager, I check "Always keep on this device"

                                      As soon as files in this folder are modified by a remote PC, this PC displays a message saying that my clipboard manager is downloading files. It offers me the option to block the download but not to allow it!

                                      Both my clipboard manager and Onedrive then hang up!

                                      Why don't folders with "Always keep on this device" just work like folders on machines that don't have "Files on demand" selected?

                                        • why did auto-syncing just turn on randomly?

                                          bit sketch considering how sensitive people are over data.
