  1. Allow the syncing status displayed when clicking the system tray icon to be popped out into a window.

    I use onedrive primarily as a synchronised backup tool between a laptop and my desktop. I also use mouse without borders.

    If I have the sync status pop up open on one machine and I switch to my other machine, the status pop up collapses on the first machine. I then have to click again on the system tray icon to get the current sataus. It would be useful if the sync status pop up could be popped out to a window so the status remains on screen whilst using other windows / PC's.

  4. Helytakarékosság

    Hasznos lenne számomra, ha mappánként be lehetne állítani, hogy mindig legyen elérhető a PC-n, vagy csak akkor töltse le ha használni akarom.

  5. faster sync

    Faster upload to online folders. Currently it seems to save to the computer, look for any changes, queue some files, then sync once all changes have been found. The save process should automatically queue and upload the current saved file even while it's looking for other changes by initiating the upload with each save. Also, it seems to pause any upload if something changes anywhere on the computer and stays that way until it can find all changes. This can make syncing take minutes or hours which is not very efficient.

  6. Let people select specific files to unsync!

    Let people manually say "I want files x,y,z to not be on my drive" since they eat up space and I don't mind losing them in a crisis.

  7. Big changes needed for onedrive for business

    1) improve the feedback of what onedrive is currently doing. At the moment you can see its processing files but what file or folder? I have thousands and it keeps counting up to 8000 and then starts over again, no errors no problem reported just doesn't tell you whats going on.
    2) I think the whole syncing sharepoint document libraries to onedrive for business is a huge joke right now. This whole situation has wreaked me in front of a client which needs to access files online but it wont upload.

  8. How about making the OneDrive icon on the Taskbar being more prominent? Right now it is gray instead of being prominent like iCloud.

    I kept overlooking it sitting right next to the battery, wifi icons. As a new user with a new computer, I need all the help I can get with these gadgets that will be part of our lives for the foreseeable future.

  9. Allow our microsoft reward points to be used to upgrade storage of onedrive.

    I can safely say i will not use my points on xbox or even starbuck rewards so why not be able to use them on something i would use,then they would at least feel like a reward.Even if you only allowed it to go towards the feature clipped version it would still seem like enough of a perk?

  10. Persönlicher Tresor sollte bei der Synchronisation bevorzugt werden

    Das der persönliche Tresor nur für die eingestellte Zeit geöffnet ist sollte der Persönlicher Tresor bei der Synchronisation bevorzugt werden, damit die Datein innerhalb der Öffnungszeit synchronisiert werden, bevor der Tresor wieder schließt, auch wenn eine Vielzahl von Dateien in der Warteschlange stehen.

  17. Specify device for priority syncing

    OneDrive should have a priority folder, probably giving the user the option to set on a specific device to which every other device will sync. This may eliminate the problem where you are syncing between two or more devices and you delete a file on one device but where the file exist on one another device which is not connected at the time it does not get deleted. When it does get connected, it is seen as a new file and uploads and suns to the other device and appears as the file you specifically deleted.

    At least that is…
