  2. Add a sync parameter to ignore files larger than a specific size

    I do not want to put my large files in a specifiq folder.
    But I would like to sync only files that are less than 20Mo.

  3. OneDrive Backups should include Start Menu, and user-Programs folders

    Products that install "per user" likely place their application into the user's Programs folder or Start Menu. The Desktop is being backed up by OneDrive, but not the actual item it refers to.

  4. Deleting a synced location folder from Windows Explorer should delete the sync, NOT the content

    With current functionality, if you navigate to a parent location sync folder in Windows Explorer (e.g. a Teams channel Files location you selected to sync), right-click and delete it, it deletes all of the content in the cloud location too. Deleting this folder should prompt the user if they want to remove the location from syncing, NOT delete all of the content.

  5. Ridiculous

    This is the most ridiculous, most sinister idea that you guys have come up with. I hate it, and I want to get rid of "files on demand" - i simply want my computer to store what I have, and not you, so that when I need it they are not there. And, to add insult to injury, I cannot post anything until I agree. Just brilliant.

  6. Select folders that need to be synchronized before installation

    Can users be allowed to select folders that need to be synchronized before installation instead of synchronizing all by default?
    Because I often need to install OneDrive, on different computers, it takes a lot of unnecessary time to synchronize all folders. At the same time, the folder being synchronized has no way to cancel the synchronization operation, which brings me a lot of trouble.

  7. OneDrive Sharing Between Personal and Business Accounts

    I have an active Microsoft 365 Family Annual Subscription, not a business subscription. I want to share my OneDrive folders with my CPA who has a Business OneDrive account. Microsoft does not support this sharing. A support people gave a weak explanation that Business OneDrive accounts cannot access personal OneDrive folders / files due to the higher security require of the business accounts. How is sharing my personal OneDrive Folders / Files with my CPA who has a business OneDrive account riskier than sharing with a personal OneDrive account?

    My work around for now is to create a shared link…

  8. Opção de mudança no e-mail de acesso ao one drive

    Ao realizar login para acesso ao one drive da empresa, inseri o e-mail pessoal por engano no acesso pelo meu notebook pessoal . Ao tentar mudar o e-mail, não há opção de mudança do e-mail. A sugestão e que se crie esta opão.

  9. Cancel syncing files while paused.

    I should be able to decide what files are synced to onedrive from my pc while syncing is paused. I do not want to have to wait 30 minutes and sync 2gb of files at 1mb/s just to tell onedrive not to sync those files anymore right after.

  11. OneDrive should produce an error or warning message if it fails to (or chooses not to) send an invitation email

    When sharing a folder with somebody on OneDrive for Windows Desktop, if OneDrive does not send the email to the intended recipient, it should warn the user.

    Sometimes OneDrive tries to send an email but fails (you have to check in your Outlook outbox to see if the email was sent). If this happens, the user is not informed.

    Sometimes OneDrive chooses not to send an email. For example, if OneDrive thinks the folder has already been shared with the recipient, it doesn't send the email because it thinks it has already been sent. This is not ideal. If an…

  12. bug: file details are removed after uploading to OneDrive

    All file details (notes, labels, tags, etc.) are removed when a file is saved only on OneDrive. This should be fixed.

  14. Renaming and moving shortcuts to different folders

    Having shortcuts is great in my OneDrive instead of syncing folders but the usability is limited since I can't rename (multiple name conflicts, lack of clarity , General etc) and can't organize (such as customer name, business unit, function of the share).

  16. Add option to select either "move" or "copy" files as a default from OneDrive to local computer.

    Add a setting to set the default behaviour (ie, copt or move) when copying files from OneDrive to local computer (eg; Desktop). Currently the computer moves files unless I hold down Ctrl. Forgetting to do has sometimes caused me to delete my local file thinking I had a copy in OneDrive.

  18. I have a problem using my one-drive files. I can't access anything. Please tell me how to do to fix it. It's urgent.

    my other accounts don't have a problem. Only t33984@365info.site account has a problem. unfortunately I use only that account and all my important files are on that account. I cannot access anything. It's urgent. Please tell me what to do.

  19. Make OneDrive stop messing up my desktop and moving all my files.

    You could make it copy them to a folder but not move them. It could also have an option for the pause syncing to have it pause permanently instead of having to uninstall it when you want it gone.
