  1. Improve Yer Product!

    Ok, so my resistance has been reduced to the point where I decided to explore the idea of placing data on OneDrive with links to my now rather complex and indispensable OneNote notebook system. Wow Microsoft. I really cannot believe what a sadly poor product OneDrive is - it is pathetic! I uploaded data folders to OneDrive and found that the folder structure was created but the data contents was left behind leaving me to access every subfolder to upload the contents. To make matters even more difficult the folder/file interface of OneDrive is the worst piece of junk interface…

  2. 保存到云端

    每次保存OFFICE文档的时候,你们都先保存到云端,再从云端下载下来,这不是SB么?直接保存到本地在上传到云端不行??非要每次浪费一分钟时间??

  3. Give users the option to totally disable this option.

    As per the title. I am fed up with this constantly asking me to set up the drive when I have no intention of using it.

  4. Menu selection to list all file names with sync issues

    OneDrive sometimes get stuck updating files for various reasons (including not finding thumbnails for photos or other files!) Rather than searching the entire onedrive folder for the double arrow icon showing the problematic files that are still updating/synchronizing, it would be nice to have a menu selection that shows all these files at once. Perhaps a menu item like "Files Still Requiring Synchronization" or something like that.

    Where this would be helpful: onedrive gets stuck and shows the same number of XX files are updating for a long period of time (hours, days, even weeks). Clicking this menu item would…

  6. Auto rename files that are not compatible

    At the moment when you sync new folders with big amount of files and it finds files that do not have compatible names, it is just saying that go and rename. It doesn't say what is wrong and you also should go and change one-by-one. This is frustrating.
    Please add the autorename that would replace symbols that are not compatible.

  9. Reminders re syncing.

    Periodically, I manually save .pst files to OneDrive because I know they don't automatically sync. I don't need a reminder from my PC every morning telling me these files haven't synced. It's a useless piece of information that I don't need.

  10. I want control over whether a deletion then deletes from other devices via one drive. Otherwise OneDrive is useless.

    I go yo delete an image ofc,PC or OneDrive or other connected device and grt the messahe thae the image will be deleted off all my devices. This renders OneDrive USELESS. I want control. And tjis also means OneDrive is useless as a spacesaver on devices via cloud storage. I SANT CONTROL over what syncs

  13. Allow us to mark folders as "local-only" so that they do not sync with OneDrive

    As a user, I want to be able to right-click on a folder and mark it as "local only" so that the contents of that folder are not synced with OneDrive online.

    Many programs and games create folders in the Documents library, and cannot be moved to another location or said program/game will not be able to find the folder. These folders have things in them that I do not need available online, such as game saves or config file. As a user, I don't want them taking up my OneDrive storage space. Because they cannot be easily moved elsewhere,…

  14. Sync progress summarizing status

    To many days I can't finish sync (download files from cloud to PC).
    I have no idea what part of folders and files downloaded and how many files and folders should be synced. I need to know is syncing working correctly or there some problems. And it will be very useful if we could know the history of syncing for some periods.

  17. Option to sync a particular folder on priority.

    The OneDrive app (in windows) automatically syncs the folders in the background.
    If we can prioritize a particular folder and its contents to be synced on top priority, it will great.

    Thanks

  18. OneDrive should backup the folders we chose different from the 3 folders you chose.

    It's a super system but why are you limiting it? only my documents, desktop and pictures are backed up. Why can't we back up the classers we have chosen? Need to buy another program that will yield more money?
