  4. OneDrive keeps syncing

    OneDrive keeps telling updating 15 files. Downloading 117 MB of 117 MB.
    I can't see which files it are. Can I let it stop.
    Shutting down and start the computer again didn't had any effect.
    I hope there is an idea.
    Thanks,

    John

  5. smart files

    Please bring back Smart Files placeholders for Win10!

    Yes, you can deselct folders in the OneDrive settings after the initial synch. However, it means that to see anything that is "cloud only" you MUST go to the web portal FIRST. The shortcuts made it SO easy because you could just open the physical folder and see it all. If you need something it would just download. You could also switch this feature on and off per folder or file with a simple right click. It was awesomeness!

    I read the article that said being rid of it was something about…

  7. Enable manual sync for Windows 10. It takes forever for my Win 10 PC to see changes to files that I created/updated from another location.

    In Windows 8, I was able to right-click on the onedrive icon and click 'sync', and it immediately pulled down any updates that I had made from other devices. Since upgrading to Windows 10, sometimes I have to wait hours or restart my PC to open files that I created or updated from another device, even though they are accessible when I log into office.com. I have even tried exiting and restarting onedrive, it says that it has synced, but it usually has not.

  8. Please remove the personal limitation on domain connected computers.

    Folder protection doesn't work on domain-connected computers when using a personal OneDrive account. I'm sure there are revenue reasons behind this. I have several children sharing a couple of computers and have them on a domain so that it doesn't matter which one they use. I wish they could still protect their own files with their own OneDrive account.

  12. Let me turn off notifications about not syncing because of a metered connection. I appreciate it...but you don't have to tell me every time.

    Also: when I clicked Feedback in my app, it took me to https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/category/86087-windows , which is an archived forum.

    I would report my version number, but I can't find any "about" or the version number anywhere. I suspect I'm up to date. (Up to date Windows and Office.)

  15. Please add “creation date” to the fields a user can easily display for a file.

    To see when a file was originally created you currently must right click and look at its properties. The properties tell you when your document was created. However you can't pull this date out onto a main display enabling you to sort or find based on its creation date. You can only see it through "properties". Many suggestions are similar to this idea but no action is being taken to help us. We need creation date, and modified date, in addition to the date it was recently downloaded from OneDrive.

  16. Updating onedrive is very very slow from the PC. Would be helpful to have a "Flush" icon that forces immediate update in the cloud.

    Updating onedrive is very very slow from the PC. Would be helpful to have a "Flush" icon that forces immediate update to the cloud. eg: I uploaded a 14mb folder and then attempted to share a link. As the file has not been fully uploaded I cannot send the link, have been waiting 20 minutes....

  17. Improve the speed on 1st login when using the sync client

    On 1st login the sync client takes about 5 minutes to startup and login to OneDrive for Business. When using shared devices not 1:1 this is not as good as mapped network drives. Please can you provide a way to speed up the process.

  20. Why do some MS apps go around OneDrive client?

    Some WIN10 apps like Fotos, Groove, OfficeLens and others have their 'own' logic to access / sync OneDrive. Why the **** do NOT ALL apps simply use data access through the OneDrive client? Is there no management in MS to coordinate development?
