  1. Please allow us to Sync folders outside of the main OneDrive folder

    There needs to be a feature that lets us sync folders outside of the main OneDrive folder.
    I'm sure most users have files on more than one external hard drive and would like to have them all synced with OneDrive as a backup/access method but there is simply no way of doing this without moving such large sums of data around

    The workaround with the symbolic links isn't an acceptable way to do it and cloud services should provide such features out of the box especially when they offer 1-2 Terabytes of space, such crazy amounts of data aren't easy…

  12. Make it simpler to choose folders for OneDrive local files.

    I'm most often coming to the taskbar OneDrive button when I need to add or remove a folder from my local files (especially on my laptop). It would be easier for users (at least I assume there are others like me!) to do that if the "choose folders" option were more prominent and not buried in a subset of settings. May I suggest moving that up to its own button? (Or am I really the only one who has to go fish for it?) Thanks for considering.

  16. allow users to disable autosave

    Firstly, I would like to point out that people come here to make suggestions for changes to products usually out of sheer frustration. This is one of those things.

    I hate that files opened from OneDrive and SharePoint have Autosave enabled. All too often I have discovered this after mistakenly believing I was working in a not yet saved file, only to discover that the original that I opened has now been over written.

    I hate autosave. It does more harm than good. Please give users the ability to disable it for all files not just individually.

  17. Suggestion: user can choose the folders under "Documents" that can be uploaded to cloud.

    This suggestion comes after a problem involving Outlook 2016 and OneDrive. I use a business e-mail account on Outlook 2016 and, as I been told, OneDrive doesn't upload pst files (saved on the folder "Outlook Files" on the folder "Documents"). So, I tried to stop OneDrive from uploading this specif folder, but as I was told as well, it's not possible: the user cannot choose which folders go to the cloud.

    So, the suggestion is not only solve this problem involving pst files, but also let the user choose the folders them want to upload.

    Thank you very much.
