  3. Use symbolic links to syncronize folders

    To sync folders that are outside of OneDrive home folder should be nice to create a symbolic link/aliases for the desired folder.

  5. Notify when two or more users are working in the same document at the same time

    Need to be advised when I'm working on a document that is in a shared folder and it's being used by another user at the same time.

  9. Pricing and Sharing

    Recently, I had to purchase extra storage on Google Drive. I would have liked to use Onedrive, but there was no adequate sharing options. With Google Drive, I can share a folder and the person I share it with can actually download the folder onto their computer. With OneDrive they must access the folder via web. That's very restrictive, especially with photos. Also, Google Drive offers 100 gb of storage for $1.99, while OneDrive only offers 50.

  10. This is a trouble program, I suggest any program should be open if I I needed.

    Programs should be open by the need of the user. Having programs, open all the time, and the user is closing and spending time on this is no sense.

  11. Not "Up to date"

    OneDrive says "Up to date" when it is not (i.e. when I have moved files/folders on a second synced laptop). Is my only option to exit and restart? Why isn't there one button to do this (exit & restart) instead of me having to right click, exit; Are you sure? yes; go to windows, all programs, one drive; additional popup. Ugh.

    Even though this only happens infrequently, it seems like such a simple fix.

  12. give me the ability to disable screen capture on OneDrive

    I prefer using Greenshot as my screen capture program as it allows me more flexibility on what I want to do with my screen captures. As of now, whenever I launch Greenshot, Windows tells me another program already has the "Shift + Prtsc" key, since OneDrive automatically launches on startup.

    Appreciate your consideration of my idea.

  16. clearly indicate difference between one drive and one drive for business

    This got better for a while, I have OneDrive personal with a MS account and OneDrive for business with an Office365 account.
    When one of my passwords get lost or changes (power fail this morning) I get an anonymous prompt and I have no idea which OneDrive I am putting he password for.

  19. add sync exception for folders

    add sync exception for folders so some subfolders of a synced folder will not be synced to the cloud. for example I need to sync the 'my documents' folder, but qq and wechat forcefully store their programd data in this folder so as long as I have these I'm apps open I have to always sync tons of useless data.
