  4. Provide a means to see which folders take up space

    I sync a huge sharepoint library which I sync, and there are a bunch of folders I need to keep available locally. This takes up a lot of space and our main disks are low volume SSDs nowadays (300GB here). Managing short available space has become a challenge. I don't have an easy way to find which folders are taking up most space because the size displayed is the size on the server, not the size of the locally kept files. The actual used space isn't properly picked up by disk usage analysers either. Some sor of disk usage analysis…

  5. Add all library folders to redirection policy

    The policy named "Silently move Windows known folders to OneDrive has redirection options only for "Desktop", "Documents" and "Pictures". Please add the rest of the folders as options in this policy:
    3D Objects, Downloads, Music, Videos.
    We are building manual processes to redirect these folders, since they are not present in the policy.

  7. Delete OneDrive Trash Software

    Love how you l can log into OneDrive and it proceeds to start moving and deleting all my files without permission. On my work laptop. I'm amazed this is software made by a real human being.

  8. Make OneDrive 64-bit for Business 365.

    There are so many sync/lag issues for the 32 bit version..especially now in this remote work environment, we are demanding files faster, but the onedrive seems to be giving sync issues sometimes, need to pause and unpause it to recognize the file, it's just slow in the sync process. Takes more than a few mins for it to be seen on another computer. Constant arrows twirling. The arrows of doom.

  9. OneDrive - view only (no download or edit) share link should be for all file types (not just MS files)

    Right now, view only (no download or edit) share link is available for microsoft files only like word or excel. That is very limited and really dysfunctional. This same feature should be available for any file type you upload ot one drive.

  11. Allow multiple users on one PC to share local SharePoint library folder

    If multiple users logon to a single PC, and sync SharePoint libraries, they will create duplicate local copies of all the files in the library. A common location should be automatically chosen for SharePoint file sync and access to libraries/folders beneath it should match SharePoint permissions.

  14. Tags for photos, and retaining of metadata when importing from other platforms

    Hi there, I'm in the process of migrating all my photos to OneDrive but have come across two snags. They are:


    1. the ability to tag seems to not be available

    2. I recently imported files from my Google Drive using Google Takeout - all the files creation date have been changed to the date I uploaded them to OneDrive. This is a nightmare as my photos go back years and now are all stored in onedrive under the same date. Is there a fix for this?

    I have other platforms from which I was going to import photos, but am now…

  15. It will be great if OneDrive can allow its users to configure the location i.e. which Drive to save a copy of the OneDrive files.

    It will be great if OneDrive can allow its users to configure the location i.e. which Drive to save a copy of the OneDrive files. i.e. allow OneDrive to create duplicates on external drives.

  18. Shared Document Editting - Show Changes

    When shared documents are edited by somebody, there should be an option to show what changes have been made. It would be extremely helpful to see what has been changed.

  20. Don't increment versions for Favorites URLs that aren't changed

    Some favorites get incremented versions automatically even though the URL is not changed, causing them to generate a synch error. Stop this behaviour so real synch errors are not masked.
