  1. One Drive Space place

    Hi, i think 5GB for non premium user is to less. a company like microsoft should offer much more. As a long-time and a active user, this is what I wish for.

    Best regards adibelli@live.at

  2. To block download option for media files

    We want to be able to prevent external recipients of our sharepoint links from being able to download, and the file type is media. We want to be able to share files such as Teams video recordings with these external recipients but with only the permissions to view and access. However, we do not want them to be able to edit, change, delete, or download the media files.

  3. make unlinking OneDrive and pc more obvious in case the white cloud in the taskbar is gone.

    unlinking OneDrive from the PC for those who wish to do so should be made easier than the while clod in case that cloud is removed.
    Is there another way for the average user to do so without that cloud?

  4. Exclude folders from synching, and not by copying it elsewhere.

    In the era before Onedrive, our local Document folder was our own.

    Now. Onedrive forces us to sync it, even if we didn't specifically said to.

    I now have a game that puts its savegame in the document folder, and it's not the only game to do so. Save games takes spaces. And they are already synched to the game's cloud. I don't want them in onedrive.

    Please allow us to exclude folders we don't want to sync, and please give us a choice when unsynching, as deleting local files is not always a good idea.

  6. Let us exclude certain folder from syncing to OneDrive.

    Example:
    I tell OneDrive to sync my Documents folder. However, within my Documents are some large folder for say Games which take up a lot of space. It would be nice to allow us to select folder to exclude from syncing to OneDrive.

  7. Few Suggestions to make this app more usable & user friendly


    1. Show sync speed (ul/dl) for every individual file as it shows in any download manager app


    2. Add option to pause and resume every individual file for UL/DL to take the full control to prioritize while Ul/Dl a bulk amount of data synching


    3. One direct click button for Pause, & quiet, restart & settings in the lower portion of the OD client app


    4. Make the 64bit newly launched OD client more performance-oriented to take the full advantages & utilization of all the modern & greater HW resources (i.e. CPU & More RAM) to get the job (file sync) done more quickly…

  9. To be able to backup additional folders apart from Document, Pictures and Videos.

    Using OneDrive is a convenient backup for files on my Windows PC. However, M-Soft only allows 3 folders to be chosen - why not add the ability to do more folders (e.g. Videos and Music) without having to move those into one of the 3 current choices?

  15. Disable onedrive or maybe just make it have the option to not upload anything while still being active.

    There should be a way to either disable it entirely, or disable it during a specific time frame/app your on. Because some windows/UAC (User Account Control) files i've moved to desktop screen were now in drive and cannot be recovered. They weren't of any importance due to it revolving around a folder that was in a windows sub-sub-sub-sub-sub folder, what im basically saying, the main point of this? WINDOWS/UAC FILES SHOULDN'T BE ABLE TO UPLOAD TO ONEDRIVE. And since i couldn't recover them i just deleted the files from drive. What. A. Waste. Of. Time. However, this did allow me…

  16. Allow the user to limit the number of threads OneDrive spawns in large data migration operations

    When a user is connecting a new computer or changing the settings of an older computer - such that the new setting will store all files locally - and - in the cloud - OneDrive spawns way too many threads resulting in I/O blocking. Instead, either limit the copy operation to no more than n/2 threads where n is the number of cores in the computer - or - allow the user to manually set the maximum number of threads.

    The reason for this is I was copying everything to @local (roughly 240GB) and it took on a 1Gbit network…

  17. Indexar Onedrive cuenta empresas con cuentas personales OneDrive

    Se requiere con urgencia poder contar con la capacidad de poder unir cuentas empresas con cuentas personales, pues, en mi caso como en el de muchos, prestamos servicios a empresas de manera esporádica pero permanente en el tiempo y tenemos una cuenta OneDrive personal no pudiendo compartir archivos entre ambas nubes. Para las empresas no es una solución crear y pagar una nueva cuenta por cada colaborador que tengan, mucho menos si este no pertenece a sus organización. Me gustaría que tomaran esta sugerencia, que por lo que entiendo es de muchos usuarios en mi condición y en otras similares.

  18. Allow the user to select how many files are uploaded at once, instead of the current 10 that can't seem to be changed.

    Currently OneDrive automatically uploads 10 files simultaneously at any given time instead of finishing 1 file before going on to the next one. This seems pointless, and is causing a bug to occur. The bug is that the slower that large files are uploaded, the more likely OneDrive just stops uploading them in the middle at random moments, after having wasted time partially uploading them, and has to start again from the beginning when syncing is turned off and then on again. (That bug should of course be fixed also, but this change seems like an easier fix, and would…

  19. Make it more simple

    I'd be more satisfied if the interface was more simple. I need some archives to be only in cloud storage, but have not found out how until now. Make it more simple.
