  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  11. 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…

  15. Permission to Upload to cloud

    Please allow Users to have a list of files that they can then proceed to authorize to be sent to the OneDrive, as is my Desktop if full of trash, I don't need all the trash in the cloud, I want the cloud to contain the things that are valuable enough to have stored in the cloud. Instead of making folders be instantly saved in the cloud, allow users to opt-in to having certain locations saved into the OneDrive or to opt into saving the entire computer on the OneDrive.

  17. Enable syncing from not just the C Drive, but external hard drives.

    My title says it all. Syncing from external hard drives to OneDrive should be no monumental feat.

  18. Make it easier to unsync multiple sharepoint sites

    I am a consultant and we use onedrive to sync project files located on SharePoint sites. Personally, at any given time I may have 40-50 sharepoint sites synced to my onedrive. Some of my projects start and end in a matter of a week or two so I am routinely syncing new sharepoint folders and often have to unsync them to declutter my folders. This is where the frustration is, right now, I have to go to settings and it opens up all th elocations that are syncing and I have to click "stop sync". Then the box dissappears and…

  19. Configurable option to delete files from disk when folders are nolonger synced

    Particularly when syncing sharepoint libraries, when a folder is unsynced, their should be an configurable option, with admin override/enforcement to ensure that those files are also deleted from disk.

    Firstly, this is because the user may no longer be allowed to access that data.

    Secondly, as it stands now, if a folder is unsynced, and then synced again in the future, then any files that were deleted from the server in the interim, but which are still on the client, get re-uploaded as new files!
