  5. I can not see the status of synchronization. At Dropbox, you allways see how far the sync is.

  8. Enable any folder to be synced

    From the context file menu in explorer (I think thats what you call it) I'd like to see an option "Sync [file/folder] with OneDrive" when you right click a file or folder.

  9. Do not start OwnCloud

    Do not start Owncloud when I simply told it not to start on startup. This is a sign that I do not want to use it. So do not try to force me to use it.

  10. Add bandwidth controls to onedrive

    I have no way to set the cap on upload speed. It would max out the upload and I couldn't do anything on the internet when onedrive was uploading.

  13. OneDrive: avoir la possibilitée de mettre en pause et de reprendre la synchronisation.

    La synchronisation limite le débit de le bande passante pour l'accès a internet ou bien la mise a jour de divers logiciel. Pouvoir interrompre un moment la synchronisation serait un plus.
    Pouvoir également programmer des horaires de synchronisation pendant de heures où l'on sait que l'on utilise pas notre ordinateur serait aussi une option très utile.

  14. Sync newest files first

    On slow connections a sync sometimes take some time. I like to haven an option to sync from newsest to oldes file. If I leafe my workstation an add a document I have to wait until all other stuff is synct before I can access this document online. Quick sharing of a file is not possible while bigger syncs are running.

  15. to add "manual sync"

    the onedrive failed to sync automatically every single time I booted up my win 10 PCs from hibernation. Well, or you may improve your auto-sync either. Otherwise it could cause total loss of my files due to repeated upload in different PCs for the same file. Look forward to seeing improvement on this issue. Thanks.

  16. Change sync rules, allow a machine to take a "master" role

    I do MCU / IoT development/test/debugging on a powerful desktop.In the build process many temporary files get created.

    I like to use OneDrive to review/browse source files from my Surface Pro 4

    I would like to be able to limit/filter what is synced from the OneDrive location on the dev PC to the cloud, to minimise the wasted ADSL uplink bandwidth and speed the sync process up.

  18. "Your IT department made a change that prevents you from syncing this folder. To find out more please contact your IT department"

    "Your IT department made a change that prevents you from syncing this folder. To find out more please contact your IT department" message when doing the initial sync of the NGSC.

    The issue occurs inside and outside the network.

  19. Un-sync OneDrive folders should not need to go to Recycle Bin

    In Windows 10, when deselecting folders (of course, I would like the file-by-file option back, as suggested countless times in this section), the now unsync'ed folder(s) should not need to be placed in the Recycle Bin but fully deleted. (I would presume that all its contents have been already placed and updated in the cloud first!)
    I often need to unsync to clear up storage space, and moving to the Recycle Bin of course will not clear up needed drive storage.
