  1. Issue: Tray icon indicates errors on MS Office-generated filenames

    The error indicator in the tray icon should ignore system-generated files, including temporary Office files. I had a perpetual "2 items can't be synched" message, but after clicking through to the report, it indicated All files are up to date." It took running the repair tool to discover that the only 2 files with issues were temporary MS-Office files, which use invalid chars in their naming ("~$<filename>.<ext>"). Once the repair tool renamed the files and the system was restarted, the tray icon returned to normal. A case was opened with PSS, who recommended reporting to UserVoice although this is a…

  2. Upgrade to next gen client - just ship the new client !

    The process for upgrading onedrive 'classic' (groove.exe) to onedrive 'nextgen' is a complete mess. Why, oh why, can Microsoft not just sort it out at source by putting the new version into Office365 C2R media ??

    I'm currently working on a rollout of windows 10 (1803) deploying Office365 C2R. I'm deploying using the monthly channel - so currently deploying build 1803. For some mental reason Microsoft are deploying 'groove.exe' with Office365, and leaving IT staff faced with a stupid process of having to re-deploy the new next-gen client and force the take over. There's a whole mess of GPO settings…

  3. Compact option for tray meny suitable for screen resolutions less than Full HD

    Sir, I often use a screen size of 1024*768 for testing to ensure everything looks OK and one of the most annoying aspects of working in this resolution is the completely out of this world size of the OneDrive tray menu, which when activated fills up half of the screen with MEGA SIZED fonts and no meaningful use of all that space.

    Not everyone will have a 4K screen so a "compact" option may be a simple to implement and welcome idea for many.

  5. filter

    OneDrive needs to have filtering for photos. Meaning I should be able to see what photos are already in albums and which ones aren't for organization purposes.

  6. Bug in Bugs

    Hallo liebes OneDrive Team!
    Die OneDrive Software für Windows ist meine Meinung nicht gut genug.
    - Es gibt keine (schnell auffinbare) deutsche Support Seite.

    • Die OneDrive Aplikation hat viele Bugs. Einige davon: -- Die Synchronisierung wird nicht abgeschlossen. Der Ordner wird angezeit al waäre dieser nur auf dem Coputer verfügbar. Und nicht Immer Vefügbar. -- Die Position vom Icon menü im system tray ist störend und unschön. es wird nicht oberhalb von der Start Leiste angezeigt sondern höher.

    Es hat micht sehr entäuscht und verärgert diese Software zu nutzen.
    Bitte bessert die Bugs aus und testet eure Software vor der…

  7. When I delete roaming profile from windows it deleted all my files in skydive online. Simply unacceptable!

    User need to warn or sky drive shouldn't attempt to sync online when user profile removed.

  13. No user notification if OneDrive has been disabled by policy

    When OneDrive gets disabled via Group Policy with the "HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\OneDrive\DisableFileSyncNGSC" key, if anyone attempts to execute OneDrive.exe it simply closes without any message or log being recorded.

    I would like to see some user feedback if they attempt to run OneDrive.exe that it has been disabled by corporate policy. Otherwise it just appears as if OneDrive is broke.

  14. Accumulate and compress

    I noticed that the speed of OD is OK for large files but it gets extremely slow for small files (web, node, app, js projects etc where you have 30,0000 files in 20 or so MB). Wouldn't it be possible for the app to compress, transfer and decompress? I think other services do that, or at least something along those lines.

  15. Stop notifying me that I can save money by switching to yearly

    Please stop notifying me endless times that I can save money by switching to yearly, it's really, really annoying. It's annoying to a point that I will cancel OneDrive altogether if I can't make it go away.

  20. Peer to peer sync

    OneDrive needs the ability to sync directly between devices, especially for syncing with SharePoint libraries that would be synced for multiple users.

    This would mean a huge decrease in traffic for remote sites with limited data connections or even to help keep large number of devices in sync without the WAN overhead.
