  1. Two computers/One Account

    I have a personal laptop and a business one. They do not share files. The problem is that standard Windows folders such as Documents, Pictures, Desktop, etc. on the two laptops can't be saved separately, unless I rename those folders one one of the laptops. I haven't tried that, but I'll bet the operating system would have problems with that.

  3. Lock the developers of Personal Vault into it and lose the key


    1. Question: if the vault provides security - are you saying that the rest of OneDrive stored info in insecure?


    2. Nobody asked if I wanted it or needed it. What I did need was security of my family's personal files stored on my OneDrive in the folder (obviously inappropriately) called Personal. Said folder has now disappeared taking all data stored with it. But I do have the Personal Vault now. With nothing in it. Fantastic. Many thanks. Much appreciated.

  4. Global Tags and Color labelling of files and folders

    It's a huge leap of faith, but I think it's high time Microsoft sets again some universal standards. Given the diversity of devices and platforms, OneDrive could appeal to a wider audience by reflecting on techniques used by other cloud providers when processing tags and labels from other OS. Until now, there has been a trade-off when implementing solutions for displaying own and other's features. But competition not always benefits the consumers. Sooner or later, one system will pravail over others. MS could straighaway bridge the differences between xattrs and altstream and so on, and by doing so, simplify the…

  5. If I can view my pictures on OneDrive in a slideshow, why can't I play my music files stored on OneDrive the same way?

    I've stored all of my music files on OneDrive but I can't play them continuously. I want a "slideshow"-style ability for my music. Now, I have to select Next if I want to play the next song.

  10. Maybe this isn't new, but I want a physical OneDrive that is a security key, a Mesh Broadcast, a power source and also a light.

    Maybe this isn't new, but I want a physical OneDrive that is a security key, a Mesh Broadcast, a power source and also a light. Basically a pocket knife that does everything. There could even be various versions that have a camera feature or a projection feature. Or a document server feature. There could be lots of specialized versions. But I think it would be so cool to have a physical version of the OneDrive.

    The new app ser up folder by default even if I don't want them. I can not Cancel the uploading process once start and I can not change the setting so I can choose the folder I really want to upload. New app is suck.

  13. ondersteuning netwerkverbinding

    ik heb een netwerkverbinding gemaakt met mijn persoonlijke Onedrive map via command prompt: "NET USE Y: \d.docs.live.net\XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX". Via verkenner kan ik alle bestanden van drive Y openen, bewerken en opslaan BEHALVE de office-bestanden (Word, Excel, …). Voor deze bestanden krijg ik telkens de vraag contact op te nemen met de beheerder. Hoe kan dit verholpen worden?

  14. speed

    If you want upload speed, use Dropbox. Unfortunally I need 3 Gb for my files and One Drive offers that free but with painstakingly slow upload speeds. On purpos?

  15. Issue when by error you start to sync the OneDrive to your computer and it can't be stopped until fully sync

    Issue when we start to sync the OneDrive to your computer and it can't be stopped until fully synced. Once the process is started OneDrive doesn't allow changes to folders selected to sync.

  16. OneDrive uses 10%+ CPU when trying to sync an open file

    Example: When a Word file is being edited - OneDrive keeps examining if it can sync that file. Today, OneDrive.exe takes approx 10%+ CPU (on a SurfaceBook 2) to do this. Right when I close Word, the file is synced and OneDrive goes to 0% CPU. OneDrive needs to be updated to back-off on open files but still sync other closed files (do this in parallel).

  17. Synced files should prioritize computer over server

    When you are working with PowerPoint, linking Charts/Tables from Excel that are in your computer, but sync, and you hit refresh, it prioritizes the server address, what is pretty annoying. Server should be seen more as a backup type of thing than source or truth

  18. Bei allen Microsoft-Produkten kann man das Komma (,) bei den Dateinamen anwenden. Bei einem Wechsel auf onedrive gibt es Hiroglyphen.

    Bei einem Wechsel auf onedrive fallen bei allen Dateinamen die Kommas (,) als Hiroglyphen raus.
    Dies wäre sicher eine kleine Programmänderung.
