  1. OneDrive Known Folder Move (KFM) suggestion to reduce amount of content in initial sync to Cloud

    We would like flexibility for “selective sync” when enabling Known Folder Move (KFM). (Like choosing selective folders to sync but the option to choose sync based on modified date)
    Need KFM allowed files to be synced to OneDrive based on “last modified date” with the ability to choose Sync to happen only for data that has been updated in the last 30/60/90 days?

  3. choose folder to backup

    Going to be blunt here, can you guys introduce option to select any folders user want to backup to OneDrive (instead of just 3 Documents, Desktop & Pictures folders) if not introduce "Backup entire PC" to OneDrive??? Like what Google is doing with its Backup and Sync app?

    I have 1TB for OneDrive however it lacks the option to backup my entire PC. My personal files are separate from the normal User folder as it is located in D: drive instead of C:\User\xxxx

  6. Option to manually define the synced folder name

    It would be great to have an option which enables end-users to manually define the synced folder name per document library. (similar like Shortcuts to websites)

    The reason is that, renamed SPO site titles are not replicated to the synced folder names, which confuses some users when they are talking about the same "sites"/"team" but with different names.
    If end-users are aware, that they have defined the Name for that folder themselves they know that the corresponding site must not correlate to their own name.

  8. Block the download of any file type (including folders)

    Block the download of any file type (including folders).

    It is possible to only block the download of certain file types. Also when sharing a folder it is not possible to block the download of the contents of that folder. This is problematic when trying to share a folder that contains multiple files. Make it possible to block the download of the contents of a folder and of any file type.

  9. 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

    または、スペースや半角を排除できるようにしてほしい。

    Syncing with the OneDrive client automatically creates folders shown as “OneDrive - <organization name>”.
    Since the presence of the space and hyphen between the “OneDrive” and the organization name makes it difficult to use batch files, we would like to be able to change these names freely.
    Alternatively, we would the space and hyphen to be removed.

    I'm using the file-on-demand feature to save space, but I often get messages saying "there is insufficient storage", even though the local storage has not been consumed. The functions somehow make it look like storage is being used up to the OS.

    Please fix this function so that there will be no discrepancy between the storage usage data on the OS and on the OneDrive synchronization client.

  14. OneDrive needs to be able to upload files with special characters such as parentheses

    Onedrive can't sync a file if its name contains any parentheses (), which is really problematic because some programs create temporary project files automatically containing these characters. I can't use OneDrive to backup my Ableton Live music projects because it won't upload these auto generated project files. Renaming them manually is a huge hassle because I'll have to go back to the program and relink them all, and there can be many.

    I know others using Ableton has switched from OneDrive to Dropbox over this issue.

  15. quickbooks Export

    When exporting reports from Quickbooks to existing Excel Workbooks that are synced with One Drive the operation fails over 75% of the time. Currently as a workaround we have to close the One Drive application then complete the exports from QB and then relaunch the One Drive app once the work from QB has been completed. This used to work with no problem and has only recently become an issue which sounds like an update occurred that broke the functionality.

  16. Add a Disconnect/Unmap verb to odopen://

    We use extensively the odopen:// protocol to automatically mount OneDrive libraries.
    Is it possible to have a similar command to "unmount" or unlink a library from a users' profile, ideally also to query linked libraries?

  17. Prevent download of shared file from OneDrive as video files (mp4), music files, folders..

    In the business edition of OneDrive it is possible to block download of Word, Excel, PowerPoint files - but NOT on any other file. This means that if I share a film (mp4), anybody can download the film to their computer. When I share music, anybody can download the music to their compute and so...

  19. Have the option of disabling ransomware detection for a specific (encrypted) folder

    While ransomware protection is a great thing to have, uploading a folder that only has encrypted folders/files inside it trips this ransomware detection. So far, after uploading that folder, I've already gotten 3 separate "suspected ransomware" notifications in regards to files from that folder.
    One way it to protect against it accidentally being turned off could be something similar to how an anti-virus is set up - when it detects something wrong, it prompts the user for an action, one of which is to ignore that file/folder and exclude it from further checks. That way, the option to disable ransomware…
