  3. To be able to define which folders in OneDrive that should be synced when installing the client on MAC or Windows.

    To be able to define which folders that should be synced automatically when installing the client on Windows or MAC, so you would have it predefined already when launching the installer.

  6. Auto save

    One drive should concentrate on the basics. It is possibly the worst cloud storage at those.
    Make sure my files are safe. Not from bin Laden, just from error. Errors which occur when a file is open and being worked on but something happens to the internet connection.
    OneDrive should save to the device physical storage first then back that up to the cloud. Too many times there are sync errors and a duplicate file is made.

    You end up spending hours pouring back through your lengthy documents just to try and remember what changes you made to which version…

  7. Allow synchronisation to be stopped in the current state. Whether files are offline, pinned or unpinned, allow all sync operations to stop.

    My work account is at 'processing change' and my personal account is 'looking for changes'. The work on WAS synced until I added a sync sharepoint folder, and now it's constantly looking for changes.

    My personal account varies between 10,000 and 140,000 file changes, but never syncs fully.

    It would be nice to have an option to say 'kill the sync' and just allow onedrive to accept the state of offline, pinned or unpinned files. I could then use the overay icons (or the O, P and U file attributes) to find folders that are not synced yet, and then…

  8. Vague dialog to restore deleted files

    Don't have a vague, unsolicited dialog box pop up weeks after work was done, that, if answered wrong, causes OneDrive to undo 8 hours worth of work. At the very least, when it happens, provide a way to re-fix the problem your bad software caused. ********-it you guys suck.

  9. 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.

  12. Transfer files and folders in a downward hierarchy instead of all the top folders, then horizontally down and down and down.

    Transfer files and folders in a downward hierarchy instead of all the top folders, then horizontally down and down and down.

    I have to wait for a folder tree until the the last horizontal folder of most folder hierarchy be moved until any folder is complete.

    When I had a terabyte on OneDeive, it all starts with the User folder, then down one level to, say Documents and Photos. Then 100 folders under each, then they kept going say 5 deep. Well, I had to wait through all the hundreds of top folders be done, then wait for each horizontal…

  14. Implement log file feature

    It would be very useful to have access to a log of the processing executed by OneDrive. Something like a list of events shown when clicking on the OneDrive icon i.e. filename, operation type, time, but with a longer history of changes viewable.

  15. Syn Client

    In may cases we have sharepoint online web sites that have many document libraries. For customers it has been somewhat painful having to sync each library individually so they can have back a persistent mapping on their windows laptop. We keep being asked why cant we have the old explorer view mapping that allowed viewing the whole web site and navigate between each document library in windows explorer. Could we consider an enhancement to the OneDrive Sync Client where it can provide an option of choosing multiple document libraries to sync from a SharePoint Online rather than having to do…

  16. Deberian añadir una opcion de exportar todos los links asi como en sharepoint para no estar enviando uno por uno.

    Deberian de agregar la opcion de exportar todos los links de los archivos de manera masiva, tal como lo hay para sharepoint, de esta forma podremos compartir varios archivos en lugar de uno por uno, no uso el sharepoint ya que los links solo se pueden compartir entre cuenta de la misma empresa si quiero compartirlo con un usuario externo debo de compartir el link uno por uno, a diferencia del onedrive si puedo compartir carpetas y archivos con usuarios externos a mi empresa pero no puedo exportar todos los links. contradiccion de la vida.

    On first logon OneDrive authenticates and respawns explorer.exe. This new shell does not enumerate all volatile environment variables. %USERNAME% is one.

  20. Unidad de disco duro para almacenar los archivos de OneDrive.

    Sería de mucha utilidad que se permitiera elegir la unidad (de disco duro) en la que se desea almacenar los archivos de OneDrive. Y no deberían ser visibles los archivos si OneDrive no está iniciado con las credenciales correspondientes.
