  1. Please add a File Explorer status icon for DLP blocked files

    To help users identify files that have been blocked by DLP rules, add an icon to the status column, or to a new column, to notify them that the file violates DLP policy.
    This icon is visible in OneDrive on the web.

  2. 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?

  3. As a User, I want to assign a higher upload priority to a file or folder so that I can move it to the cloud immediately.

    Quite often, I need to share some files with my colleagues while OneDrive is looking for changes and uploading new files to cloud storage.
    The process of looking for changes takes a while. Moreover, by default OneDrive itself determines what should be uploaded first.
    I want to be able to assign a top upload priority to the files that I need in the cloud ahead of anything else rather heavy and probably occupied by a running process, such as a Lightroom catalog backup.

  5. Restored files should have a date modified equal to the last modified date of version being restored

    Currently when a file is restored the modified date changes to the date it was restored. Instead, it should have the last modified date as found in the version history.

    The lion share of restorations that we do are to restore a file that should not have been updated. Having a modified date of when it was restored suggests that new information was added recently.

  7. Make it possible to prevent files/folders from syncing automatically based on word filters

    Many professional authoring tools every few minutes, sometimes 5 others 10, create autosaves of over 1GB sometimes 2 or 3GB, and even more, which do not need to be uploaded. It would be great if there was a blanket rule for uploads preventing files or/and with the word "autosave" or other depending on the software, to be synced only on demand. Since for some of them there is no particular folder that you could exclude,) or simply can't exclude for other reasons, (since excluding means removing entirely and some tools automatically regenerate them) a filter come very handy.

    Network bandwidth required for sync client updates


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business のネットワーク帯域幅は、現在同期に必要とされるネットワーク負荷についてのみ想定されている状況ですが、同期クライアント アプリの更新に伴うネットワーク負荷を下げるような機能については提供には至っていない状況です。

    利用環境によっては、ネットワークの逼迫を回避するために計画的な OneDrive 同期クライアント アプリのアップデートを実行しているが、重要な更新プログラムのリリースが必要とされる場合は 60 日間の猶予期間が省略されることがあるため、想定外のネットワークの逼迫が発生してしまい、広範囲での影響を及ぼします。
    そのため、ネットワーク帯域幅については同期利用時のみではなく、同期クライアントの更新に関してもネットワーク負荷を下げるような機能を早急に用意してほしいです。​

    The network bandwidth of OneDrive for Business is currently based only on the network load required for synchronization, but the feature to reduce the network load due to update of the sync client application has not yet been provided.

    According to the usage environment, we have been executing updates for the OneDrive sync client app in order to avoid an overstrained network, if an important update program needs to be released sometimes the grace period…

  10. Make behavior stable even when more than 30,000 items are being synchronised

    Make behavior stable even when more than 30,000 items are being synchronised


    公開情報でも、同期しているアイテムが 30 万以上ある場合は、パフォーマンスに影響する可能性があることを確認しています。
    業務上扱うデータ数が多く、同期するアイテムを減らすことが難しい状況です。
    そのため、同期しているアイテムが 30 万以上あった場合でも、安定して動作するように改善を希望します。

    ------- 抜粋 ------

    同期しているすべてのライブラリで 30 万アイテム以上がある場合は、パフォーマンスの問題が発生する可能性があります。

    Even from published information it is clear that having more than 30,000 synchronised items may affect performance.
    Out organization handles a lot of data, and therefore it is difficult to reduce the number of items being synced.
    Therefore, we would ask that improvements be made to allow stable operation even in excess of 30,000 synced items.

  11. Backup Important PC Folders - Additional Options

    "Backup Important PC Folders" should have additional options to include all the primary user profile folders - particularly Contacts, Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Favorites, Music, Pictures and Videos.

    The most important ones would be Favorites and Videos to add to the mix, but realistically it should even include the 3D Objects folder.

    This would not only make IT environments far easier to automatically back up, but also personal use of OneDrive would be far more beneficial to the average user.

  12. Monitoring device sync status

    OneDrive for Enterprise badly needs a method of centrally monitoring Sync status for users.

    With our team working from home we are relying more and more on OneDrive to keep their drives and sharepoint info in sync. But without some method central monitoring we are at the mercy of the users to tell us when sync is broken.

    So users frequently end up using files that are out of date

  14. OneDrive error 0x8004de40

    This "error" has existed since late 2018 or possibly much earlier. OneDrive is the only software reporting connectivity problems on my PC. What's keeping developers from finally getting off their lazy asses to fix it?

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. Enable uses to choose a folder that is not Documents, Desktop or Photos to sync

    Please, enable users to choose a folder that is not Documents, Desktop, or Photos to sync. In my case, Windows is installed in an SSD, but my files are in a different HD, so I can't sync any of them.

  20. Multiple Personal OneDrive Instances on the same PC

    The ability to have multiple instance of different personal OneDrive accounts on a single PC in the same Windows Account.

    In OneDrive for Business, you have the ability to sync with multiple organisations at a time. But in OneDrive Personal, only one personal account can be connected to at a time. The ability to connect to multiple personal accounts from the same Windows account would be of great use, especially where a user is part of a family subscription to Microsoft 365 where potentially, there could be 6 people in the subscription.
