  2. Request to upload

  3. Do not update to Win 10

    I use Win10 Pro and after a bunch of updates OneDrive has been disconnected on all the computers that I use. In addition, it does not upload my files to the server. Win 10 is a mess.

  4. Enable backing up the Personal Vault contents to an external hard drive, using Windows backup.

    I use the built-in Windows back up. The contents of my Personal Vault are not included in the backups.

  5. piece of junk

    Stupid onedrive has to sync every single file on the local drive before it lets you pick and chose which folder to syn and unsync.

    This is just a pathetic alternative to DropBox

  6. Add ability to ignore locked files from 3rd party applications

    Especially with AutoCAD DWG files there is a big problem. As soon as a DWG is opened, AutoCAD creates two lock files. These two files and also the opened DWG cannot be synchronized. If several DWGs are opened at the same time, OneDrive may not synchronize at all. It eats away at the opened files and no other synchronizations take place.
    It would make sense to ignore the opened files and instead process everything else that can still be synchronized.

  14. Make OneDrive actually useful and allow it to sync any folder/files on your local PC that you want

    Allow OneDrive to backup/sync any local file/folders from your local computer and make it obviously available on any other computer in your account, for example, if your main computer is properly synced and "dies" you can set up a new computer and assume those files and folders again. Essentially, provide a seemless and reasonable backup solution for key files and folders that aren't limited to the file/folder locations that MS deems important.

  15. Allow instant login to 'view online' from app

    When clicking on 'view online' in the OneDrive App allow it to login to OneDrive online without having to fill out the email and password again (which it already knows).

  16. Login automatically like steam would on windows startup.

    So basically, I hate having to fill in my email and password every time I turn on my PC, I want it to login straight away, this makes the process much quicker.

  18. Massive improvements to sync required

    Two devices, sync seems to fail often, create conflicts regularly and simply not be fit for purpose. Any more than about 100 files hosted and the service is pretty much unusable.

  20. Prioritization of File Upload/Download

    Please implement feature to prioritize which download/upload comes first. For example: You press a symbol (e.g. star) next to the file so that it uploads/downloads earlier or faster than the other files.
