  3. onedrive says a file is in use when it is not if a symlink to the file was opened then closed.

    after I run a program which updates then closes a file in onedrive via a symlinc from a non-onedrive folder, onedrive never detects that the file is closed so gives the "unable to sync" message. file is a ".db" not an office file. have to reboot to clear the error.

  6. Get the Personal user GUI Reliability and Useability matching the Business users

    As a personal Onedrive user on the home machine I would like to have confidence that a drag'n drop upload will run - including empty files and folders ( where the name is a placeholder ), and that failures can be dealt with - as in I can see the filenames in a list rather than having them as a sidebar in the no-longer updating browser panel.
    May not matter so much if I could see a list of files that are on the Onedrive folders - rather than just those the browser noticed as I paged down.
    Basically that…

  7. Corrupted File in OneDrive (PowerPoint)

    One of my PowerPoint files located in my OneDrive became corrupted after my computer had the BSOD error. After restarting the computer, I tried to access the file and I received an error. When clicking on the Repair button, I received another error saying that the file couldn't be opened. I need help recovering that file, as I am still unable to access it. This has happened before, where I am working on a file and the computer goes BSOD and then the file becomes corrupted and cannot be opened. I need this fixed please.

  8. An error occurred in the data store????

    Ive just tried to share my first folder (im trying one-drive after being a google drive user for many years)

    No matter how many times I've tried it, and from either source PC or logging onto the web view area on a different pc when I try and create a link to share (or share via email) I get something went wrong - an error occurred on the data store.

    everything is synced up okay (it did take forever though and Ive got a tasty Cable service (400mb)

    any ideas?

  9. A simple recently accessed/used file selector in OneDrive (desktop)

    Windows used to have an extremely useful recently used/accessed file/folder picker in explorer. The newer quick access is much much less useful since it does not register recently copied/accessed folders. One Drive could and should have something equivalent and better to allow users to much more simply access current/recently used files (and folders) synced across PCs - i.e. those currently being worked on across PCs. Having to constantly hunt through complex file structures for different files is pretty irritating in this modern world.

    it's a terrible idea.

  12. OneDrive sync issues

    OneDrive just doesn't do the job. I have OneDrive from work and I also have a personal account. These two should just work seamlessly. Well they don’t. I have thousands of files waiting to be synced causing other files that I have recently added in OneDrive and which I want them synced on a priority and there’s no way to force this. There isn’t even a way to tell OneDrive to just ignore the problematic files or to manage them efficiently for whatever changes needs to be done to them to eventually sync. In the end when things get ugly,…

  13. How to remove OneDrive COMPLETELY, & have "This PC" actually point to THIS PC, not to OneDrive? I don't want to share ANYTHING on the cloud!

    I have disabled OneDrive, primarily because I don't want files to be written to it automatically, I don't want to share my files on the "cloud", and I want to easily save my documents and files on my local disk. "This PC"n should point to "THIS PC", NOT to OneDrive", since "OneDrive" is NOT THIS PC! Instead, Windows makes it much harder to find and store items on a local disk drive (THIS PC!), because "This PC" does not actually point to the local disk, but to the Cloud. That is inaccurate, deceptive, and wrong.

    SO, you've made it so…

  15. some GB lifetime for only personal use.

    I just need some GBs like between 40 to 100 GB for personal use.

    I checked some other cloud services with lifetime space and I found some good offers but I can't trust them as I trust onedrive. and I'm also familiar with it and I like it a lot.

    the problem is that I can't afford the monthly or annually payment. and also I don't need all that much of storage.

    so I was hoping you can add limited GB for a lifetime for only personal use. between 40 to 100 GB.

    you can consider it for students.

    regards.

  18. Make this software opt in, and not just handed out.

    This software should require you to opt in and say yes I'd like this garbage on my pc. Now after never wanting this product and removing it after getting moths of storage full notifications I can no longer locate my copy of the files that were on my pc and not stored in the "cloud". The fact that you automatically include this and not make it opt in even if its free make me never want to buy another Microsoft product. Thank you for *** up a project that to date has consumed a month of my life.
