  2. Enable bitlocker to save a digital encryption key for USB media to OneDrive

    Bitlocker will not allow you to save a digital encryption key it creates for USB media to OneDrive. It gives a message to say it cannot be saved there because that drive in encrypted.

    My idea is that bitlocker should regcognise OneDrive as a viable paltform for the encryption key to be saved to.

    It is problematic because our C: drives are also encrypted by Bitlocker and that location cannot be used for an encryption key either. In essence, there is no location users can save a digital encryption key to.

  5. Partial Sync on Demand

    It will be useful having the following options mix (on demand with selected folder download)

    Having on demand for un-downloaded folder will be very beneficial and accessible to all the cloud when needed.

  10. Allow me an option to see OneDrive folder structure and filenames without having to sync the full content.

    I have limited hard disk available so many of my folders are not sync'd from OneDrive. I have yet to find an easy way to access the content of these without using the web onedrive.com client. I'd just like to see the folders and file names in these stored locally and for the files to be made accessible on-demand rather than all the time from within file explorer or applications like the O365 suite. So OneDrive would index the Cloud only folders and include these in the view I see when selecting File Open as if they were available locally.…

  12. Recently modified files would stay even after a reboot or shutdown

    It would be great if recently modified files would not disappear after a reboot or shutdown.
    So it would be easier to remember where you left off.

  14. Fix my bug please. I can't be then only one, weeks and weeks of pain.

    I cannot delete this file, or the folder it is in. This literally breaks my PC, and my ability to sync. I will not pay for this any more. Customer lost. Weeks and weeks of "Looking for changes" do you actually employ developers and QAs? It seems not.

  15. Let users tell OneDrive to skip some files

    I just got a notification of "No access to files", but I don't care about those files. I would like OneDrive to IGNORE those and not tell me all the time that it's a problem

  17. My thoughts on OneDrive

    1- Microsoft is huge with some of the best developers in the world on staff, but I'm wondering if there is anyone there that is concerned with the UI/UX of things. One drive is like a box that someone threw in the middle of a room and added a couple of dividers leading you to believe it was a much better developed program than it is. Sure take your time and separate your files into the folders but their search function. Is literally the equivalent of mixing all your files back together again to look for one specific file. It's…

  18. make all files available / always keep on this device confusion

    I don't understand why, after having chosen all folders to be available on my pc (Settings-Choose Folders-Folders That you choose will be available on this PC; and I chose all of them, and the option "make all files available" is ticked), I have to go to the Onedrive folder, right click on any particular file or folder, and then choose the item from contextual menu called "always keep on this device". I thought the former should do the job but apparently the files were not physically there till I did the latter. Seems too confusing to me.
