    Please can an option be added to OneDrive so that when I make a change to a file, everyone who it is shared with is notified that a change has been made?

  6. Add a Disconnect/Unmap verb to odopen://

    We use extensively the odopen:// protocol to automatically mount OneDrive libraries.
    Is it possible to have a similar command to "unmount" or unlink a library from a users' profile, ideally also to query linked libraries?

  7. Missing Data on OneDrive Personal

    I subscribe to Office365 family premium and have lost all my pictures between 2013 and 2019 from my OneDrive mysteriously and there is no way to contact Microsoft. All my daughter's birth pictures and videos are all gone.... I am really frustrated and there is no way of contacting Microsoft. What do I do?

  9. Prevent download of shared file from OneDrive as video files (mp4), music files, folders..

    In the business edition of OneDrive it is possible to block download of Word, Excel, PowerPoint files - but NOT on any other file. This means that if I share a film (mp4), anybody can download the film to their computer. When I share music, anybody can download the music to their compute and so...

  10. Still not possible to sort images in an album. Onedrive is sorting for you

    It is still not possible to sort images in an album the way the user wants it. I don't understand why this has not been fixed. Sorting is done by onedrive and appears random or based by date.

  11. Stop moving my files from desktop, documents, and pictures and making it almost impossible to get them back in their original location.

    Stop moving my files from desktop, documents, and pictures and making it almost impossible to get them back in their original location. This product will never get off the ground or gain wide acceptance when it is so fatally flawed.

    I don't know what you are thinking. You call it backing up but you move the files to another location. WHY?

    Backing up means making a copy for safe storage and potential recovery.

    A COPY!

    Instead, you move the files and we can't get them back.

    I'm really tired of trying to pick up the pieces of the mess that…

  12. bug: file details are removed after uploading to OneDrive

    All file details (notes, labels, tags, etc.) are removed when a file is saved only on OneDrive. This should be fixed.

  14. Unsync and Remove

    Add an option to unsync and remove the local repository. Or add a remove local repository dialogue when unsync is selected. Right now it's a two step process and requires knowledge of where the repository is. End users don't know where the files are stored, and they like to try unsyncing by deleting the folder in file explorer.

  16. Make an Option to Restore The Default Folders

    OneDrive should provide the option to restore the default folders and files if they were mistakenly deleted, similar to Personal Vault, which cannot be removed, so that the user's important PC folders and files are not mixed up with other manually stored files.
