  1. OneDrive actions from Windows File Explorer

    As noted here (https://blog.onedrive.com/onedrive-now-supports-10-gb-files/) File Explorer should have more context actions for file. But it doesn't seem to be the case for Windows 8.1

    Please add OneDrive actions directly to File Explorer. Like "Get link", "Share" and privacy options. Always the need to go to the website is a pain.

  2. Move local OneDrive files vs. downloading all again

    OneDrive created itself in my Users folder by design. I decided to move it to another partition. I unlinked it and then reconnected, choosing the partition and folder I preferred. Rather than just moving my data files from the previous location to the new one on my disk, it downloaded all the files again from the cloud, which took hours. Then I realized that was not the best location and moved them again, requiring more hours and hogging up bandwidth. This is inefficient. I am still learning where the best place is for my files, and now I am reluctant…

  4. Allow OneDrive for Business folder to be renamed

    The main OneDrive for Business folder cannot be renamed, apparently because the path for syncing would break.

    This is limiting and becomes very confusing for employees when sharing files with colleagues, as SharePoint creates folders with the same name in the computers. People don't remember which is theirs and which is shared.

  6. Provide API to access Windows Settings stored in OneDrive

    I would like to have REST API to things like Favorites, passwords, etc.
    Obviously some API already exists and is used by Windows but it's not documented anywhere.

  8. Need security & features in one drive app for desktop/mobile version

    Hi Team,

    Presently the one drive app for desktop doesnt have any security feature. All pics can be viewed by anyone who has access to the desktop/laptop.

    Please put some lock/hide for desktop/laptop version of one drive app as its there in mobile or any option to lock a particular folder will be great.

    Also provide the option to sort by(date/name) in desktop/laptop version as its there in the mobile version.

    Option to allow the app to delete pics once they are uploaded to one drive which will help us.(i.e. a checkbox to delete pics after upload)

    It would be

  11. win10 TP Build 10159. i now have the one drive up and running. However, i can not move the one drive path nor do i have the off line option.

    I am running windows 10 TP Build 10159. I now have the one drive up and running. However, I can not move the one drive path nor do I have the off line option. the surface model does not have a large Hard drive so this off line only option is the best of both worlds. I can still have it as just a back up and sync just the files I need at the time.

  17. Customize the ICON folders (and keep it after sync)

    In Windows, we have the possibility to customize the icon of a folder. But if we do it in a OneDrive folder the sync resets the default icon..

  18. Let me prevent auto startup

    I wish to have the ability to prevent onedrive from running at startup and/or still be able to manually start or stop onedrive entirely including the sync processes from the desktop.

    I use a laptop for a dedicated software system setup that when onsite does not have internet access by design but the constant attempting to sync and starting up without internet present seems to cause a drain on system resources and interferes with my dedicated software from maintaining a constant output control system.

  19. I'm done with OneDrive.

    Too many bugs, too slow. OneDrive continues to tell me it can't merge changes to a document THAT HASN'T BEEN EDITED. OneDrive then creates duplicate files appended with the name of the computer I'm working on. THIS IS INSANE AND HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR A MONTH. The problem is on the OneDrive side and needs to be fixed. Microsoft - fix this!!! Until this is acknowledged and fixed my Microsoft, and until the Shared documents sync properly with the desktop client, I'm done with OneDrive. Dropbox has never let me down like this poor imitation from Microsoft.
