  1. disbale personal vault.

    There is this new 'feature' but I cannot delete it or disable it in the client. I did not sign up for it and it certainly was not requested. Intrusive ... but impossible to remove from the client!!!

  2. Expand the existing option to choose which folders to sync

    Expand the existing option to choose which folders to sync with a configuration option to make any new folders off the root sync too. At the moment if you choose to not do a full sync (I do this so my _Backup directory is not synced) everytime I add a new root directory it is not automatically synced.

  6. Highlight text

    This 'idea' is really not unique to Onedrive but is pervasive throughout Microsoft. I submit that no screen should be rendered such that it is impossible to click/highlight text in order to copy/paste into a subsequent message, text, email, document, ...

    Over and over and over - I have the need to discuss what I am viewing on my screen. EXACTLY what I am viewing on my screen. The easy way to do that is to highlight it, copy it, and paste it into whatever discussion I am having. The hard way is to get a split screen (so I…

  8. Give us more control!

    I believe the one thing that makes me detest Windows more than anything is that the developers treat end users like little children. I logged in to my OneDrive online yesterday. Little did I know that OneDrive started up on my Desktop and began sending all of my files up to OneDrive! ASK ME IF THAT'S WHAT I WANT INSTEAD OF JUST DOING IT! I finally figured out how to turn off OneDrive on my Desktop. Then I had to go to OneDrive online and delete all my files it had sent up WITHOUT MY PERMISSION! I then tried to…

  9. More metadata for Files On Demand placeholders

    Files On-Demand doesn't sync a bunch of different metadata like tags and datetaken for photos. This means that if you needed to find all photos with no date taken metadata for example you have to download everything, do the search and then free up space.

    It would be great if we could sync more metadata for the placeholders. The best scenario would be to just sync all metadata so there's no difference in what we can search for and change with placeholders. If that's not possible either adding common tags for things like photos, music, and documents would be good.…

  10. OneDrive downloads the whole file when we try to check file properties

    This is a problem of OneDrive in Windows 10.

    So for example I have a 2GB file on my OneDrive storage that I want to check the properties of.
    I right-click and select properties. then OneDrive keeps me waiting because on the taskbar it shows that it's actually downloading the whole file, just to show me its properties. so OneDrive can't only get the metadata but it needs to acquire the whole file to show me its properties.

    This needs to change because it's just waste of Internet bandwidth and is bad for productivity.

    I have Office 365 Business premium…

  14. Allow moving shared folders

    After using the web interface to "Add to my OneDrive" a folder that was shared with me, I would like to move it to a non-root location within my OneDrive. The root directory becomes very cluttered otherwise. This should work in a similar way to the existing functionality in Dropbox.

  16. Solution for "You may be experiencing a temporary sync delay due to high service activity"

    Please provide information about what the user or IT team can do to address high service activity.

    The preference is to never have this block in our workflow. When it happens, it's not known how we can take action to mitigate it.

    You may be experiencing a temporary sync delay due to high service activity

  19. Make recent download/upload files draggable without opening containing folders

    Allow dragging or opening of files directly from the one drive download upload list without having to open or search the folder.

    I often upload pictures from my phone to add to emails on my desktop. It would be nice if we could simply drag and drop like normal files from the one drive download, upload list.

    A similar and more direct solution that solves the same problem is to add any one drive recently downloaded files to the Attach File > Recent Items list in Outlook.

  20. Allow OneNote access from Personal Vault

    Personal Vault is an excellent innovation. However, it's only really useful for images as Office etc files cannot be opened into their respective clients.

    Many of us keep large amounts of sensitive information in OneNote and there is a compelling need to be able to access a secure OneNote from within the Personal vault, especially on mobile devices.
