  1. Ability to pin the OneDrive status window

    Currently, the OneDrive client disappears as soon as you click off of it. It would be nice to have the ability to pin it so it stays open. There are times I prefer to watch which files, if any, are being synced.

  3. Observe read-only folders when there is a clash

    Are we supposed to report bugs here? Anyway, here goes...

    I share a folder from own OneDrive with every user in the organisation. It contains some useful PowerShell scripts and shortcuts (lnk files) that everyone needs access to.

    The folder is shared read-only....

    There is a sub-folder in there called "Shortcuts" - it contains LNK files. One day this month something happened whereby all the computers with a sync'd copy of this folder attempted to write to this folder. Of course, they aren't allowed to but they still created a clash folder called "Shortcuts-LAPTOPxxx".

    This got OneDrive in a very…

  4. 원 드라이브 내에 있는 엑셀 파일과 파워포인트 파일이 열리지 않네요

    2일 전부터 원드라이브 내에 있는 엑셀 파일과 파워포인트 파일을 더블 클릭으로 열려고 하니 그대로 프로그램들이 죽습니다. 다른 위치는 문제가 없는데 원드라이브 내 파일만 그러네요.

  8. 제발

    동기화가 제대로 되긴 하는건지 모르겠어요 파일 삭제를 한 뒤 동기화가 진행되면 클라우드 파일도 삭제되야 맞는것 아니예요? 도대체 삭제를 몇번해도 같은파일이 계속 살아나고 쓸데없이 삭제한파일 살리는데에 리소스를 잡아먹으니 도대체 클라우드라고 만든건지 고물을 만든건지 모르겟어요. 제발 동기화 제대로 처리되게 해주세요. 파일정리좀 합시다 제발.

  9. doc to docx conversion

    Conversion of .doc files with folders with .docx files. We have clients that we did work on their files from a few years ago so the compatibility issues of keeping these files in the same folders and trying to have one drive sync has created issues such as "read only" or "cannot save"...

  10. GPO to manage 'start onedrive automatically when i sign into windows' setting

    Can we please get a GPO to manage the option of:
    'start onedrive automatically when i sign into windows' and prevent users from being able to untick this option.
    Having OneDrive silently sign in is useless if the app does not auto start when a user logs into Windows.

  11. Allow any version of OneDrive to start up in corporate environment.

    Seeing an issue if you deploy the latest OneDrive production version through SCCM in your environment, but have the GPO set to delay updating until the second release wave, your users will not be able to launch OneDrive to sign in and configure the application. The users will get an error of 0x8004de22. In the OneDrive setup logs you'll see something like "10/17/2018 03:45:23.260 UpdateDownloader: !WARNING! (0x00000000) Downloaded an update which is either a downgrade or the same version! [18.172.0826.0010] to [18.172.0826.0010]"

    If you remove the Group Policy around delaying until second release wave, your users will be able to…

  13. Can Windows perhaps invent a HELP system that doesn't require waiting 24 hours for someone to email you back. - Called TALKING!

    How about a system - like Apple have - when you can get to talk to a real person when you have exhausted the 'on line' solutions that you get told don't apply to your particular type of account - which is one you pay real money for each month

  14. seria interessante que permitisse criar senha para onedrive no computador para proteger os arquivos, quando o computador e usado por outros

    seria interessante que permitisse criar senha para onedrive no computador para proteger os arquivos, quando o computador e usado por mais de uma pessoa, sendo que so permite essa função no celular.

  15. Fix creating new folder

    Fix the fact that when you create a new directory on a pc ... getting a "new folder" it's practically impossible to rename it. One drive starts immediately syncing and whatever you type gets replaced, refreshed, select all happens... in any case impossible to use. The only way around is to create a folder on the pc locally, then rename it, and then only put it on onedrive.

  16. Subida de datos

    Subida de datos: en mi caso, tengo 3988 archivos subiendo. Noto que, el sistema, sube simultáneamente varios archivos. Mi sugerencia es que; primero, suba de uno en uno (es mejor un dato completo que varios incompletos) segundo; que el usuario pueda escoger que la subida sea por peso, por fecha por tipo de archivo. tercero, que se pueda pausar archivos en específico.

  17. Comment se fait-il que, sans me demander mon avis, onedrive ait vidé mon ordinateur de ses fichiers pour les transférer sur le drive?

    Comment se fait-il que, sans me demander mon avis, onedrive ait vidé mon ordinateur de ses fichiers pour les transférer sur le drive?
    Je suis d'accord pour avoir une COPIE de mes fichiers sur le drive. Mais je veux que TOUS mes fichiers soient disponibles hors connection.
    Comment se fait-il qu'on ne m'ait pas demandé prealablement si je preferais COPIER ou TRANSFERER ces fichiers ?
    Comment se fait-il qu'il ait fallu que je passe 1h avant d'avoir la réponse, qu'il fallait cocher "toujours conserver sur cet appareil" Pourquoi cette fonction n'est-elle pas cochée par défaut ?
    Vraiment je suis très…

  19. Enable sync to a separate share as a backup

    My team has a projects share that everyone backs their work to so that everyone has access to work done on previous projects. It would be great if OneDrive could sync my work to this sort of separate server so I'm not constantly having to manually backup my work.
