  1. Add a [Close] at the pop-up "We have an app for this"

    The other day I shared a video from my OneDrive to a somewhat less experienced user. Later she told me she did not play the video, because she had to install something. I wondered what she had to install, but let it rest and shared the video through (unlisted) Youtube. That went fine. I heard something similar from someone else as well, so I gave it a try and shared a video with my wife (she is using Gmail). When I opened the video, indeed there was this pop-up "We have an app for this" offering to download it. Now…

  2. A tool that only upload files to cloud, not store or change local folders on PC.

    Imagine you have a folder structure to edit all your projects, Photos and videos, Premiere and lightroom Catalogs sorted by "YEAR, EVENT, etc", if you want to backup it through OneDrive,
    You need to move all folders Under "OneDrive's" folder, and so the chaos is installed... The softwares you use don't locate the original folder now...
    A tool to only upload it would be awesome, through the browser is awful...
    Include a way to see how many GB each folder have it's crucial as well.

  3. Download now in context menu

    Please bring the option to download now in context menu, since sometimes the file is just online, but I want to use it in two days offline, without wanting it offline forever. I want to download it know so it stays for the time I configured in windows with smart storage, without keeping it forever

  4. Do NOT automatically transfer files

    After already disabling backup of Desktop, Documents, and Pictures OneDrive re-enabled them on startup again. This moved what represents hundreds of hours of saved games from their original directory into OneDrive effectively detaching them from their respective games. Disregarding whether or not OneDrive does or does not clean these now not-backed up files from itself, this should not have happened automatically. Inform users when any files are moved, regardless of what is assumed to be their importance.

  6. For the pause function, please have an option to pause indefinitely.

    When I right click on one drive and go to settings, options to pause are 2 hours, 8 hours and 24 hours. Please add "until I turn it back on" or some similar option to it. It is annoying that I get notifications that my one drive is full and I don't want it to keep syncing to every file I have.

  7. Prevent shared folders from being download. Its hard to go through 100 files to prevent one by one.

    When a folder is shared with lot of files the need of preventing download on a folder and any document, picture, video or what so ever its contents to be unable to download.

  13. WOAH - STOP, SLOW DOWN!

    You should NEVER* (unless given consent explicitly) set OneDrive as the default location of Documents, Pictures, and Desktop file locations. Many of my documents were auto-syncing without expressed consent or a setup and filled my OneDrive account in a single moment. I'm all for selecting or options, but forcing a product's use is sketchy.

    I'll go through and customize which folders will sync. Not everything is valuable.

  17. Indexação de arquivos no ONEDRIVE

    Preciso que a indexação de arquivos pelo browser seja igual a indexação feita pelo "explorador de arquivos/gerenciador de arquivos/ file explorer" do Windows 10.
    Problema: Indexador de arquivos pelo browser assume indexação binária Ex: sequências de 1, 2, 3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,100,1000 e o correto seria igual ao do gerenciador de arquivos, numérico sequencial : 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,...

    Essa solução já existe no gerenciador de arquivos do Windows 10 bastava reproduzir na consulta via browser

  18. Upload file directly to OneDrive.

    When uploading file to OneDrive it first creates another copy of the file on my drive before sending it to OneDrive and allowing me to make it available online only. Not only it takes more time to upload but also requires from me to have extra space and gives my ssd another unnecessary write which shortens it's life.

  20. Unabhängiges sichern von Ordnern in onedrive

    Ich würde gerne schnell (mit rechtsklick) im dropdown menü einstellen können, ob eine Datei oder ein ordner in (z.B in Dokumente) in onedrive hochgeladen werden soll.
    Manche Programme legen automatisch ordner an, die dann den onedrive speicher belegen und auf allen Geräten angezeigt werden.
    Ich will auch für diese einstellung nicht extra im Browser nochmal mein Passwort eingeben müssen
