  3. One drive for windows 10 should LIST all files .

    when I installed windows 10 insider preview I noticed that One drive doesn't LIST all uploaded folder/files but only those which I selected for offline downloading.
    In comparison One drive for windows 8.1 was quite polished.

  4. Allow OneDrive on a disk with the ExFAT file system

    The restrictions on allowed file systems makes a Mac/PC dual boot virtually impossible.

    Windows forces the use of the NTFS file system, which doesn't play nicely with OS X. It's possible to redirect the Mac app to use the NTFS file system, but it never actually syncs.

    The only universally supported file system between both operating systems is ExFAT. Dropbox works wherever you place it. Please remove this restriction.

  5. Estaría bueno que en la misma aplicación se nos informe sobre la capacidad de nuestra cuenta, sin tener que acceder a la web.

    Hoy en día, para saber la capacidad total o restante de nuestra cuenta, hay que acceder desde la web, ya que el software no tiene un lugar donde nos informe.

  8. Allow One-Way files/folders in OneDrive, so I don't have to download on all machines

    I want to be able to upload folders / files without having to download them on all machines. For example, it would be nice to upload documents to Photos from clients but only sync them all down on my main box.

    I could also upload logs for problems to a "problems" folder and then delete them from a client box.

    I could find pictures for my parents and copy to a shared folder, but I don't need the duplicates on my local box, just on the cloud share for them.

    I used to solve this problem by just keeping the…

  9. Create prioritization for files/folders.

    Allow for users to set a prioritization of particular folders so to allow them to sync before everything else. Would be invaluable when using another device to have the files you set as high priority to download/upload before everything else.

  10. Add a setting that allows users to turn off the dialog box/prompt when you exit the OneDrive client in Windows 7

    I manually start/exit OneDrive as needed on my Windows 7 computers and so I would like your team to add a setting in the client that would allow users to turn off the message that appears when you exit the client. See the attached file for a copy of the message that Windows 7 users see when they exit OneDrive. By default, the client can have this warning message enabled and users can uncheck/disable it as they see fit.

    By the default, the client can ship with the setting enabled and users can disable the warning if See the attached…

  11. Please do not reset folders selected for synchronization after each update of OneDrive

    I suddenly recognized that there was a silent update of OneDrive. As a result, OneDrive forgot all folders selected for synchronization and started to synchronize the whole content from cloud to my PC. I did not expect to get everything but only I selected for synchronization.

    Please do your best to remember folders selected for synchronization and do not reset the list after each update of OneDrive

  13. OneDrive app for windows 8.1 error: "Sorry, There was a problem. Please try again later."

    When I try to lock my lock screen, and I want to browse a photo from my OneDrive, but it just show the error text said that "Sorry, There was a problem. Please try again later.". And also I try open the OneDrive app and Photo app, both app also showing exactly the same error...but I it still works fine for the desktop version. After tried all kind fixes, nothing changed.

  14. To enable folders from different hard drives.

    If you have more than one hard drive in your system. I'd like to option to add that folder to the sync process instead of coping it over to the OneDrive folder. That way, every added file to that folder on separate hard drive will be synced.

  16. Have OneDrive in Windows 10 work the way it does in WIndows 8.1!

    OneDrive as it exists in the Tech Preview of Windows 10 is a dramatic step backwards in terms of usability. No longer can I choose where OneDrive is located - in Windows 8.1, I can set OneDrive to be on an external drive, freeing up local hard drive space and allowing me to have more folders available offline. Now I am limited to my laptop's small hard drive, meaning I can only sync very little from my OneDrive.

    I also cannot understand why the ability to see all of OneDrive in File Explorer is gone. It is currently so easy…

  20. Please fix sync issues on Windows 8.1

    The OneDrive sync is very slow and not reliable on Winows 8.1. Sometimes it's going to "Checking for changes" and stuck in that position about 3-4 hours. Please fix it.
