  1. HAD TO FIX 75 PC'S + BECAUSE OF ONE DRIVE STEALING FILES, MOST PEOPLE DON"T KNOW WHAT THIS APP IS OR WORK WITH IT

    PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW WHERE THEIR FILES HAVE GONE WHEN ONE DRIVE STEALS THEM. MAKE IT AN APP THAT HAS TO BE OPENED FROM THE PROGRAMS MENU AND CONFIGURED WHEN PEOPLE WANT IT PLEASE. FOR ME TO FIX THIS PEOPLE HAVE TO PAY. THESE ARE BRAND NEW MACHINES AND IT IS A VERY BAD STRIKE AGAINST MICROSOFT, THEY ARE REALLY ****** BECAUSE OF THIS, AND IF THEY COULD TALK TO YOU THEY WOULD HAVE SOME VERY FANCY WORDS. I HEAR THEM ALL THE TIME.

  2. File-OnDemand loses icon when doing a large Sharepoint library (4000+ files) sync

    OneDrive Support Case # 746928
    Tested with OneDrive support, new client with file-on demand feature would lose the status icons when doing sharepoint library sync with 4000+ items. Applied registry fix to disable File-OnDemand appears to fix the issue. Please let me know if your dev team wants a demo of this issue.

  3. Disable 'open in Explorer' and the ability to Map to Map Drive

    When mapping a drive via Explorer, the drive disconnects after some time for SharePoint users. Why wouldn't you create some solution that keeps the user always logged in?

    I deployed that option and it was a nightmare. The drive would keep giving errors after reboots or not have stable connection.

  4. Klasörü OneDrive'a ekle özelliği

    Yandex drive uygulamasının bu özelliğini çok sevdim. Elbette kısayol ile bir klasörü OneDrive'a ekleyebiliyoruz ama Yandex bunu daha kullanışlı hale getirmiş. Resimde gösterdiğim gibi hernangi bir klasörü OneDrive'a ekle bağlantısı istiyoruz.

  6. Be more like Git

    OneDown = Git Fetch
    OneUp = Git Push
    OneSync = Get Merge

  8. Make it able to be removed from the PC on Windows 10

    Not one person likes not be able to control which programs they can and can't have on the computer. Yes, you can turn off notifications but it still pops up. Microsoft should not push programs on users that we may or may not want or utilize. It takes up valuable resources and can become quite annoying. I recommend that Microsoft makes it to where any file or program can be removed if this user no longer wants, not just OneDrive.

  9. Don't sync auto on local C drive when you install windows

    Usually OneDrive it's not in the main drive because it takes a lot of disk space

    Warning: If you delete any files that sync to the Samsung Gallery, they will be moved to the Recycle Bin and deleted from all your synced devices.

    Why Is this something we should put up with?
    One Drive had become a disaster, bloating and bloating, while getting harder to control what is uploaded to the cloud while protecting it locally.
    Fix this disaster and get your hands off our local files.
    We need it to be easier to delete from cloud but leave local files!

  12. Resizable dynamic menu, and icons in the popup menu.

    I have a small screen, and would be nice option to have dynamic menu that is not using oversized icons, and in overall can be smaller then now. I think would be nice option also, to show only the currently sync'ed and the remaining items....

  13. One drive folder as possible default

    I would like to know if there is a way (and if there isn't, to suggest the creation of) of you defining the Onedrive folder as the default "destiny" to all files downloaded on the internet, emails different fron outlook, etc... This measure combined with "files on demand" would make things way more automatic and easy for me and for people who would like to conserve memory space in their notebooks. I always have to delete the file from the "Download" folder (even though it's sync. with Onedrive) whenever i download something from an internet website or email (that isn't…

  14. Why can't move the folder location

    For example: the picture folder can change the location,but the OneDrive folder can not.

  15. Renaming UPN in e.g. Azure AD is not seen as same account by OneDrive.

    When changing the logon UPN of an account in Azure AD. The account should be the same as the previous account. But OneDrive considers these as different accounts.

    e.g. renaming bla@contoso.com to blabla@contoso.com the account is technically the same account, identified by the AD object id.

    When can this situation arise? E.g. a divorce where the last name is changed back to the maiden name for instance.

  16. Provide a selection that disengages One Drive from Synching, saving anything to One Drive and allow saving documents to an external drive.

    Many users need to keep sensitive documents off of someone else's controlled Cloud storage. There needds to be a option to turn One Drive OFF. I do not want my documents stored anywhere other than my own external hard drive. I don't require synching, Cloud storage or "back up copies" for 60 days in the cloud. I have used external HD's for 40 years which allow me total control of my materials, eliminates virus issues and allows positive back up not requiring internet connections. Plus I can create and work on documents off-line as well as access programs without being…
