  1. When a file is deleted and then uploaded and renamed with the same name, it should appear in the cronology.

    Some application such as CATIA V5 drawing, when is saved it is saved on the CATIA cache and then renamed with the correct name. This has mean that when it is synched the OneDrive app delete the actual version on the cloud and replace it with the new copy. This causes the lost of the version of the file in the cloud.

  2. Add a pause button to quickly suspend the sync.

    Please add a pause butto to suspend the sync. Pausing sync should be easy as the actual resume button.

  3. Group Policy settings are completely ignored by newer versions of OneDrive.

    Newer versions of OneDrive completely ignore Group Policy settings, and Domain Joined computers prompt the user to backup their folders to OneDrive. We must have the ability to reliably control this in a Corporate environment. For corporate governance and compliance reasons, we cannot permit this. Please return these controls to the Domain Administrators - these cannot be user choices.

  4. OPen file explorer instead of Online Shareponit

    When sharing documents from desktop, the link opens up the online sharepoint folder. We would like the option to open the link to file or folder in file explorer on desktop instead

  5. Pri synchronizácii počítača s One Drive nie je možné synchronizáciu zrušiť, iba pozastaviť! To je absolútne neprijateľná alternatíva!!!

  6. Better error notification when stopping the application

    When having problems with the hard drive, file check/ parse points, OneDrive quits without notice. It is just not present any longer. Because of not having the OneDrive folder other programs are not working. It takes time to figure out why the other programs stopt working, it there is no error notification

  7. Allow us to set the priorities used by the sync client

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    同期クライアントの同期の優先順位を設定できるようにして欲しい
    Allow us to set the priorities used by the sync client


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の同期クライアントは、同期の優先順位を変更できないため、前後にサイズの大きいファイルがあると優先的にアップロードしたいファイルのアップロードが遅れてしまう。
    サイズや拡張子など、同期をするファイルの優先順位を設定できるよう、機能の拡張を希望します。

    Currently, there is no way to adjust the priorities of the sync client, so if there is a large file to be synced, a file you want to upload now will be delayed.
    Please add settings to specify priorities to use for syncing, such as file size, extension, etc.

    Behavior of the OneDrive sync client

    OneDrive の同期クライアントは、更新のタイミングが指定できないため、他の作業を実施している時に更新を始めると PC に負荷がかかり、作業に支障が出る。
    そのため、更新のスケジュールを設定する機能を追加して欲しい。

    It is not possible to specify the timing with which the OneDrive sync client updates, and if the update happens while other work is being carried out, it places a load on the PC and gets in the way.
    Please allow us to schedule these updates.

  10. Syncing every time all the files

    Why always drive syncing all the files on change of only one file. Drive should sync only the changed files, if syncing all the file every time its taking so much of internet data and make the system slow.

    About changing the name of the sync folder displayed in Explorer when syncing a folder shared with the OneDrive sync app

    ■Description(内容):
    現在の OneDrive 同期アプリでは、共有されたフォルダーを同期した場合に、同期フォルダーの名前を変更できない。

    The current OneDrive sync app doesn't allow you to rename a sync folder when syncing a shared folder.
    Therefore, expand [Building icon-Organization name] on the left side of the Explorer screen, and change the folder name including the "-" part from the folder name in the "Shared user account name-Folder name" format created by default. We want you to provide…

  13. Simple. Do not let ONEDRIVE take over my computer!

    Do not let ONEDRIVE take over my computer! UPLOADING when it wants then ultimately MOVING MY FILES replacing it with a link AND NOW I CANNOT restore my computer back how it WAS!

  14. If I accidentally delete a local file, I want OneDrive to not delete it. My company uses OneDrive as a backup solution.

    To save money, the company I work for canceled our laptop backup solution and started using OneDrive. Now that file versioning is supported, that's pretty decent and I can get back old versions of files. But now, what if I delete a file locally, can I make sure OneDrive will ignore the local delete and retain the backup copy on OneDrive? I'm not the administrator, and I would prefer that this be user-configurable if possible. Or, if the right move is to make that an admin setting, that's good too, but preventing accidental deletes is something I think we should…

  17. OneDrive colors, themes and folder views

    OneDrive needs themes and color options to change the look of the top OneDrive blue bar and application background options. More folder views are needed for OneDrive, as well as folder colors as well.

  19. Multiple icons with parent folder display improvement of child folder's status.

    When a file or folder is syncing under a parent child (1) its either displaying the could icon or something else. (2) It would be better to display the sync icon marking that upload is happening UNDER that folder. (3)

    There could be multiple icons next to eachother. The icon that represents the folder itself, and the status of files under that folder. This would only apply to folders obviously.

  20. I hope Microsoft add the option "Sync Immediately" into OneDrive Desktop.

    I hope Microsoft add the option "Sync Immediately" into OneDrive Desktop like OneNote. This help us sync the files more quickly and it's especially convenient for the users who sign in the same account on several computers.
