  2. Onedrive Windows 10 app is duplicating files and appending "-copy" to the end of file. There should be an option to not create duplicates.

    Do not allow or have option to deny duplicate files. This is especially important when multiple computers share one account.

  3. 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.

  4. Provide the ability of add an existing online OndDrive folder to be added to the PC's OneDrive folder in Windows 10

    I need a simple mechanism to add one or more folders which exist in my online OneDrive account to be added to the list of folders which are synched under the OneDrive folder on my laptop which is running Windows 10. The content in each added folder would, of course, be synchronized over all devices.

  6. Issue: Tray icon indicates errors on MS Office-generated filenames

    The error indicator in the tray icon should ignore system-generated files, including temporary Office files. I had a perpetual "2 items can't be synched" message, but after clicking through to the report, it indicated All files are up to date." It took running the repair tool to discover that the only 2 files with issues were temporary MS-Office files, which use invalid chars in their naming ("~$<filename>.<ext>"). Once the repair tool renamed the files and the system was restarted, the tray icon returned to normal. A case was opened with PSS, who recommended reporting to UserVoice although this is a…

  7. Better Display

    I would like to see two panels (like the old Norton Commender), with local files on the left & remote files on the right (or top/bottom). We (most of the people that I know, 90%) are confused about where files are. Also the full path needs to be displayed & copyable (in case it is too long). All those alias are confusing.

    I do not know what do anymore. I am strongly thinking about switching everything to Apple iOS or downgrade to Windows 8 or maybe even XP???

  8. filter

    OneDrive needs to have filtering for photos. Meaning I should be able to see what photos are already in albums and which ones aren't for organization purposes.

  9. Request to upload

    This feature allows sending a link to anyone requesting them to upload any file. something like PayPal when you send requesting for money to be paid.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. One Drive options

    There should be an option available to change user account or there should be an option for creating multiple accounts in same computer with different accounts.

  17. Selective Sync: Right-Click, Sync This file/folder, Done

    Just set OneDrive to not sync everything it can access by default, and allow users to instead right-click files and folders of their choosing to be synced to OneDrive.

    The current system of everything being synced regardless of user input, and the lack of an intuitive user interface is stressful and makes physical backups a necessity for everything.

    So far as I have seen with my Windows 10 OneDrive, there's no way to set my PC as the only place I want my files saved, and no way for OneDrive to cooperate with users wanting to save specific things. Instead,…
