  1. clearly indicate difference between one drive and one drive for business

    This got better for a while, I have OneDrive personal with a MS account and OneDrive for business with an Office365 account.
    When one of my passwords get lost or changes (power fail this morning) I get an anonymous prompt and I have no idea which OneDrive I am putting he password for.

  2. Onedrive for W10 unreliable

    Windows 10 OneDrive is not reliable and sync messages not useful. Since OD is integrated with W10, there's no way to restart the service or to even know if the service is running reliably or not. One things for sure, my iPad, MacBook, 2 Adroid phones (4.2.2 and 6.0,1) can upload and donwload reliably. Windows 10 version -- it's the worst!!! Doesn't upload, troubleshooting message not informative -- "this file needs your attention" and "open the document in office for more info"... after i open the doc... then what?

    other files cannot sync up or down reliably -- "processing changes"

  3. why doesnt OneDrive for business have the autosave screenshots and photos?

    OneDrive for Personal use has the facility to automatically save screenshots and photos which has proved extremely valuable .

    I was astonished to find that the version for businsess on my works laptop did NOT!
    I thought initially that Admin had disabled this feature but then discovered it is missing by default.

    Please consider adding this feature to the business version !

  5. Online files should show up in OneDrive folder to save space on small drives but still be available quickly

    Online files should show up in OneDrive folder to save space on small drives but still be available quickly. In my case I have big Desktop with a couple of TB disc space put together. But my Zenoook only has a 120GB SSD. Right now, I have to let it take up space on my laptop because I can't see my files, if they aren't available off line. I know I can get them from the website, but that doesn't exactly improve productivity

  9. Prevent OneDrive from opening randomly.

    I am incredibly sick of OD opening randomly on my computer even after I have EXITED the program. I can't find a place to uninstall it and even if it is installed at random it will open a window and urge me to sync or sign in or something else. For the love of all things holy STOP THIS STUPID SPAMMING! It is insane, stupid, and if I close the program I want it closed, I don't want it to open again in five minutes.

  14. I suggest that information about how space I have used/total space of my plan be showed on the app when I single click app icon on systray.

    I suggest that information about how space I have used/total space of my plan be showed on the app when I single click app icon on systray, like we have on the photos app.

  18. Its better to finish one file uploading at a time and then move to next. Uploading multiple files at a time is flawed design.

    My System hangs when there are multiple files being uploaded at the same time. Please change the design to upload one file at a time, finish that and then upload the next file.

  19. Google Home notification when sync has finished.

    "Your OneDrive folder is up to date", said my Google home mini. Just a tick box in the menu to switch this on and off, or "OK Google, tell me when my OneDrive has finished syncing."
    It's all about taking control of your time. Waiting for OneDrive is not a good use of time. Things to do, places to visit, clients to call, etc, etc.
