  1. Exclude files from AntiVirus

    We should be able to exclude files from the antivirus scan. Onedrive flags in house programs that are virus free as infected.

  4. Conflits de synchronisation

    Dans la section "Conflits de synchronisation", ajouter une option "Conserver la version sur cet ordinateur" car dans le cas où on sélectionne "Toujours conserver sur cet ordinateur", la bonne version est sur le PC non pas dans "OneDrive" (OneDrive n'ayant pas pu se synchronisé avec le PC). Cela nous oblige à retrouver tous les fichiers locaux modifiés, enlever les versions téléchargées et renommer les fichiers au nom d'origine.

  5. Carpetas o archivos que se encuentran en "Documentos" y que no deseo que se suban a OneDrive pero que sí permanezcan en mi computadora

    ¿Cómo hago para que una carpeta o archivo (que está dentro de otra carpeta sincronizada) quede en mi computadora y no se suba a OneDrive?

    Esta duda surge porque hay programas que crean carpetas dentro de "Documentos" y no quiero que esas carpetas ocupen espacio en mi OneDrive, ni que se sincronicen con mis otros dispositivos, pero obviamente sí quiero que queden en la computadora donde se instaló el programa original que creó esas carpetas.

  8. Stop OneDrive from Syncing Certain Local Folders

    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 to sync these program files that I do not need on any computer except this one, while my actual work…

  9. Add Personal Vault to OneDrive for Business

    The Personal Vault in personal OneDrive is very useful and adds more security for personal files. Can this feature be added to OneDrive for Business?

  10. expand and add further folders selections to manage Backups I.

    Dear OneDrive, First of all you have a Great Product! Are there any plans to expand and add further folders selections to manage Backups I.e Music for example ? Is it acceptable to right click and in the properties of a folder select “location “ and alter its path to /users/<username >/OneDrive/Folder name ? Thanks for your help regards Kevin

  14. Sync alternate data streams

    Could OneDrive add the ability to sync alternate data streams? Perhaps there could be designated alternate data streams that third-party applications could use to keep their data in sync on OneDrive. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

  15. 请提供让OneDrive通过代理传输的选项

    上载速度很不错,能跑满我的50M上行带宽,可是下载速度慢得令人发指,只有200KB/s,即使在快的时候也只有600KB/s。我知道这可能需要在中国建造新的服务器,那么可否让OneDrive使用我的代理(Shadowsocks)?现在我无论是否使用代理,下载速度都差不多,因为网络流量没有通过代理!代理软件的日志没有显示OneDrive的网络传输!

  17. My idea may seem novel, but how about giving users the CHOICE to NOT use OneDrive?!!!!

    I have never liked OneDrive ever since it made it's first appearance. It would be nice to be able to choose how my Excel docs and my photos get saved. Why force people to use it? If there is a way to stop it, then it has been obscured really well...that just sends a message that we have less control than ever.

  19. OneDrive uses 10%+ CPU when trying to sync an open file

    Example: When a Word file is being edited - OneDrive keeps examining if it can sync that file. Today, OneDrive.exe takes approx 10%+ CPU (on a SurfaceBook 2) to do this. Right when I close Word, the file is synced and OneDrive goes to 0% CPU. OneDrive needs to be updated to back-off on open files but still sync other closed files (do this in parallel).

  20. Enable shared folders to be placed within your personal folder

    Currently shared folders and personal folders are in 2 separate overarching folders. It would be much more convenient to be able to move shared folders freely within your own personal folders (or subfolders) so that all files are organized as you would like.
