  1. 能够自由选择默认Onedrive文件夹存储位置,而不是默认C盘下的用户文件夹,这样重装系统后Onedrive文件依旧在电脑上,无需再次从服务器下载

  2. Allow filters to select/exclude what should be synced

    It would be great if I could set filters like files/folders with this pattern name or this extension should not be uploaded. Hand-picking what should and what shouldn't be sync is a pain.

  3. Enable users to change the folders being synced while syncing is in progress.

    Too often, especially after a sync reset, it becomes necessary to change the folders being synced while a sync is in progress. But I always get an error message indicating that it is unable to change the folders (choose folders) syncing while a sync is in progress. Invariably, I might download 150Gb just so I can turn off syncing for that folder and delete the 150Gb from the local computer.

  4. Prioritize new files or open cloud files for sync

  5. Expand free tier storage to atleast 15gb to compete with Google

    5gb does not cut it in terms of storage for free tier users. It's a new decade up your storage tiers

  6. Focused OneDrive Folder.....

    Wouldn't it be nice to have your current content 'promoted' . OneDrive doesn't seem to care about what I am working on and all my other folders. It would be nice if 'active' files and folders are easy to find and have higher performance.

  9. Files not deleted from the PC when OneDrive is running as a Windows Service

    We make AlwaysUp -- a utility that can run the OneDrive desktop client 24x7 as a Windows Service. Details here:

    https://www.coretechnologies.com/products/AlwaysUp/Apps/RunOneDriveAsAService.html

    Recent versions of OneDrive (including 19.232.X) exhibit a strange problem. When you delete a file in the cloud, the file is not removed from the local PC. All other synchronization works though. And the problem does not occur when you run OneDrive normally on the desktop.

    We experimented with the various settings but none made deletes work. We did notice that, with FilesOnDemand on, the files were removed when they were not yet downloaded (i.e. had the cloud icon…

  10. Allow option to prioritize syncing folders/files through right click in windows explorer

    Allow option to prioritize syncing folders/files through right click in windows explorer. We have such massive files sometimes and need a way to "force sync" a file or move it up the priority tree.

  12. The new manage access section has recently changed and not in a good way

    The Manage access section has recently changed (last week or so) and now you can’t edit user rights individually. You can only remove the user from a sharing rights group (like view only) and then you have to add them back if you want to elevate their rights to edit.

    This is a horrible design change. If you have multiple users in a sharing category (like “people you specify can view”) that you want to elevate or downgrade several from edit to view, removing & re-adding one at a time is cumbersome at best. There needs to be, as there…

  13. Funcitonality similar to .gitignore for onedrive

    Onedrive gives the functionality of selecting which folders to sync. Generally, it is very time consuming to select all folders and when new folders are added, people will forget to add them. It would be good to have a functionality like .gitignore like a file or to exclude folders to sync from the UI, because there are always big folders with junk data which does not require syncing but because they are part of an important subdirectory, they get synced.

  14. Size difference on File Explorer and Copying dialog

    Size difference on File Explorer and Copying dialog. From the picture you can see the filename Dashboard15-21Dec2019.rar 32397 KB and in the copying dialog is 43.3MB. This cannot be right.
    This is a bug than idea.

  16. Filenames with a dot [.] symbol prefix

    Without this syncing the following is impossible:


    • git repos

    • git bash config files

    • WSL config files

    Consider enabling OneDrive to accept files beginning with a dot/period "." many applications create config files with leading dots, particularly cross-platform or ports of unix tools.

    When trying to upload them OneDrive says “OneDrive file names can't start or end with '.' (dot) symbol”. It does however, accept folders that begin with a dot symbol [?] Windows Explorer has handled both quite happily ever since the old file naming conventions were relaxed..

    (This is a repost of this archived suggestion: https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive-archive/suggestions/9155857-filenames-with-a-dot-symbol-prefix)

  17. Make resolving sync errors easier

    The resolution context box that appears when I attempt to resolve sync errors is unclear and often does not work. It would be good add options for sync-resolution that are easy to understand & easy to perform.

  19. "Sync to OneDrive" option

    "Sync to OneDrive" option: Allow users to sync/backup any local folder or file from C drive or other partitions. Add a quick option in the right-click context menu to enable "Sync to OneDrive" for any folder or file.

    Proposed behavior:
    - select any folder or file from C drive or any other partition
    - right-click and select "Sync to OneDrive" - this will mark the folder as "Linked to OneDrive"
    - a pop-up window will ask to browse for the location on OneDrive where to sync/backup the folder / file

    Current workaround:
    The only workaround I found is to manually…
