    When we activate "files on demand", the thumbnails of audio and video files simply disappear, showing only the icons. Even leaving on both sides: local and cloud. Which is quite strange.
    As a OneDrive subscriber I end up losing this function that is very important to save disk. Something needs to be fixed on OneDrive.
    Disabling "files on demand", thumbnails appear perfectly.
    In theory: it needs urgent correction.

  2. SharePoint Sync Environment Variable

    Similar to %OneDrive% and %OneDriveCommercial%, there should be an environment variable to the Org's SharePoint Folder Sync location.

    Goal would be to create local shortcuts that refer to local sync'd locations.

    My use case would be on my multiple Win10 desktops because each device has the same sync'd SP locations.

    Currently I have to use "%userprofile%\OrgName"

  3. Stop false positive virus detection

    OneDrive is notorious for false positive virus detections. There is no appeal. No way to submit a file for review. No way to get around the FALSE detection. Support has been totally unhelpful throughout two years of opened cases as an E3 Enterprise 365 customer. At this point we want OneDrive to provide the ability to 1) disable the false virus detection; 2) provide like EVERY OTHER virus vendor the ability to submit a file for false positive review, and 3) the ability to disable scanning all together.

  8. Account verification when setting 'choose folders' option

    I'm working on multiple PCs with different types of work, but my work PC is using the'choose folders' option so I don't want to expose the files on my personal PC.

    I'd like to proceed with account verification when I 'choose folders (available on this pc option)' to prevent others from changing options to activate hidden folders.

    Thanks!

  9. Include "PowerRename" functionality as part of OneDrive install

    I think it might be useful to include Microsoft PowerToys' PowerRename as part of the OneDrive install, or it's functionality.

    Why?
    - a space takes 3 characters (&20) in SharePoint storage. These extra characters add up across the entire file path and could cause sync issues for the end-user.
    - end-users may have many existing files that may require 'clean up' or conversion to more efficient file naming convention. PowerRename tool permits renaming single or multiple file's space character to a dash (or other acceptable character).

    OneDrive could even have a program setting option to:
    - continue using spaces in…

  14. stop certain folders on my computer from syncing to OneDrive and remain only locally on my computer.

    I need to stop certain folders on my computer from syncing to OneDrive and remain only locally on my computer.
    The Problem: OneDrive automatically syncs all files/folders saved in "My Documents," which has been working fine for me so far on the "Free" (5 GB Max) version because I only save word documents/excel sheets for work in "My Documents" and save larger files in folders on my computer that are not tied to OneDrive. However, some applications default to saving their enormous program folders in "My Documents" and I've recently run into this issue. Now OneDrive is completely full trying…

  16. Jump to front of queue

    As a heavy OneDrive user, I often run into situations where I'm needing a file to sync up, but the file I need hasn't even started because of tiles ahead of it in the queue. It would be nice if I could navigate to a file in FileExplorer and the context menu give me an option to jump a file to the front of the line for uploading.
