  2. Hello! I think that it would be better if onedrive locked any file that is currently in use rather than creating a second one. I lose files

    Hello! I think that it would be better if onedrive locked any file that is currently in use rather than creating a second one. I lose files because of this although my files are relatively small in size,
    thanks!

  4. this app is driving me mad!

    I'd like to turn off automatic uploading and actually choose what I want to save, as I'm deleting stuff to make space the page keeps jumping and refreshing as its adding more stuff that I didn't want to save. very frustrating. should be simple!

  5. Disable synchronization for specific items

    It would be great if there was a way to exclude specific files from synchronization, just like how you right click and there is an option to "Always keep on this device".

  6. About the problem of synchronous version storage

    I'm using OneDrive's synchronization function, but every time I save a file (when I'm writing a document), it saves a version of it in the cloud. This has caused my cloud to take up too much storage space. I only want to save 2~3 versions in the cloud. Is it possible?

  8. Files Stored Online should save a pic of each document on the computer drive for preview

    Accessing previews of files saved online in one drive and not on the PC is very time consuming ... why can't the file be stored online to save disk space but a preview of the first page of the file be located locally so that the delay in previewing or mistaken opening of the file when trying to preview as it pulls down from the cloud does not occur and the user is able to quickly preview a sample of the file without access to the cloud... ???

  10. Make OneDrive more Flexible

    I cannot exclude my desktop from sync. This makes a mess of my desktop every time as it syncs with a computer that has other applications on its desktop. I'd rather like a OneDrive that lets me deside what is synced and what not. Now it looks like an Apple app ( paternalistic so we deside whats good for you ;-(
    It also should work the other way round. Files are kept on my pc and what ever i sync is in the cloud. If I exclude folders from OneDrive they are cone from my pc but they are still…

  11. Default Share Permissions

    Please allow us to set the default share permissions in the app. I always want to share with the permissions set to NOT allow editing by default so records can not be modified. Thanks for the consideration.

  15. KISS (please explain this concept to your devs)

    One drive is not very user friendly. I don't use it because the UI is clunky and difficult to manage. Management is very complicated and I don't have time to search through docs to find out how to stop syncing EVERYTHING! I decided to try One Drive to store some repo files so I may access them from another machine. When I went to retrieve them, I found my storage full because OneDrive tried to sync my entire machine. After spend 15mins looking for sync options (which I never located), I disconnected One Drive, deleted the files in the cloud,…

  16. all the folders in the ondrive must be

    A user should be able to include or exclude any folder based on what he wants to sync. It must not be compulsory.

    I was very annoyed because most of the games and tools use documents folder to save their configurations. Its very annoying to make changes in all of them.
    And in some cases its not even impossible.

    rather its simple to just uninstall onedrive. I preferred the later one.

    - A setting to allow sync Upload to continue after the Vault has been locked (preferred)

  19. Correção

    Aplicativo está carregando o mesmo arquivo mais de uma vez - Carrega, depois de concluir, começa a carregar o mesmo arquivo de novo.
    Quando seleciono pastas para liberar espaço no disco, ele começa a liberar espaço do que solicitei mas simultaneamente começa a baixar outros arquivos para o computador. Arquivo que não foram solicitados em momento algum.
