  1. Request files from Outlook plugin

    I appreciate the "request files" option exists within OneDrive when logged into 365 online portal, however, it would save a lot of time if this feature were an option to either the Onedrive Desktop app or as a plugin to Desktop Outlook. Like many others I rarely use 365 via my web online portal and therefore use the desktop apps, so a feature like this would be very helpful as well as keep up with the competition who seem to have all these plugin options to their cloud services.

  2. Option to prevent sub-directories within the OneDrive folder from Syncing

    Add an option similar to "Always keep on this device" that would prevent OneDrive from Syncing/Uploading the selected File/Folder.

    Something akin to "Do not Sync to OneDrive"

  4. Prioritize uploading files in large syncs.

    When you sync a large number of files, OneDrive should prioritize uploading small files before large ones. This would make it possible to back up as many files as possible in the event of a failure. OneDrive gets stuck with large files.

  6. OneDrive Known Folder Move (Duplicate Shortcuts when roaming computers)

    When roaming computers, shortcuts on the desktop are duplicated. This happens when known folder redirection is enabled.

    This is incredibly annoying and we are currently working with a school who depends on OneDrive, and every day we get calls from users telling us that they have 10 copies of the Teams Shortcut.

  8. 当从 OneDrive 文件历史记录恢复文件时,希望被恢复文件的修改时间能恢复到对应历史文件的修改时间。而不是当前时间或那时的上传时间。

    每个文件历史记录的文件保留每个历史文件的所有修改时间属性。
    这样每次恢复时对应时间点文件的修改时间也会恢复。
    (这里说的是文件的修改时间属性,而非上传时间,也请不要把上传时间单纯的应用到修改时间。)

  9. Allow OneDrive to sync correctly on a dualboot device (MacOS / Win10)

    I use a dualboot MacMini 2020 (MacOS and Win10). Onedrive was first synchronized and running succesfully on MacOS. When I installed Windows 10 via bootcamp and synchronized my OneDrive on Win10, the OneDrive app on MacOS didn’t work correctly anymore. It keeped syncing, OneDrive folder could not be found, I had to login every time, ... Please make it possible to synchronize OneDrive on a dualboot device...

  10. Files On-Demand Exclusions

    Offer the ability to exclude files or folders from Files On-Demand. When using Windows AutoPilot and trying to use UE-v with OneDrive, if you have Files on Demand turned on it breaks the UE-v templates being applied to a machine. Once you download the file it works but that is of no use for that particular method.

    Win32 App settings to roam is still very much a part of Enterprise deployments and using OneDrive and UE-v is a nice combination but Files on Demand does break this.

  19. Resume file sync.

    When I have uploaded file, 90% uploading done, but unfortunately system went to hibernate mode. I login PC with in few sec, file start sync from 0% (from initial). So waste of time and internet data. It will be better if the sync start where it get end.

  20. Save the synced files in a partition directly

    The OneDrive program creates a folder and name it "OneDrive - account title" then it puts the synced files inside it. Even if I selected the partition directly save the synced files in it, OneDrive also creates that folder then put the files inside it.
    I want to know a way to when assign the partition or any place to put the synced files directly without needing to create that folder.
