  1. Allow Individual Users (not Admins) To Exclude Specific Files and Folders

    Currently, users cannot exclude files or folders from OneDrive. For example, I like the reminder that says that "Files you delete [can be restored] from your OneDrive recycle bin within the next 93 days." However, I don't need that reminder every time I save a file, when my editor replaces the .bak file. And those .bak files shouldn't be stored in OneDrive anyway. So we need a way, as individual users (not administrators) to exclude specific files, files based on wildcards, files in specific folders, or files in specific subfolders of a hierarchy in the file system (ex: "\users\mark\projects**\node_modules", from…

  2. Restore the ability to sign in to the OneDrive Windows store app with a work or school account

    The ability to sign in with a work account seems to not be available any more. When selecting the option a screen saying "Oops, somethign went wrong" is displayed with only the options to relaunch or sign out. Neither option allows you to get in to the application with a work account. Worked with Microsoft support on this and we were unable to achieve a sign in on:
    - Original laptop that was able to sign in before
    - Fresh Windows 10 Enterprise environment 20H2 not connected to a domain or Azure AD joined.
    - The support engineer's Windows 10…

  3. Let OneDrive show .dwg file thumbnails with Files-On-Demand

    When Files-On-Demand is enabled, .dwg files don't have a thumbnail, as opposed to OneDrive on the Web or the OneDrive app.
    This feature helps architects to sort plans as file names are way less descriptive than an image.

  4. differential sync

    When files in the cloud, such as SharePoint and OneDrive, are updated, synced OneDrive Desktop users will have a full download of the updated data. I want you to improve this so that it becomes a differential download.

  5. 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?

  7. 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

  8. enable multisession support on onedrive with fslogix

    Onedrive is limited to one single session as per https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/fslogix/configure-concurrent-multiple-connections-ht using Fslogix.
    Many customers are using Citrix or RemoteApp to deliver published apps to users and having multisession on the same OneDrive container, will be very beneficial.

  9. Adapt new design of Windows 11

    As Windows 11 was just announced and still under development, I think this would be time to start working on the new design for the pop-up panel of OneDrive to match the new design of Windows 11.
    Something like transparency effect, rounded corner, fly-out animations and new icons just like how the Action Center (Quick Settings) currently is on Windows 11.
    Hope this makes sense.

  10. LEAVE OUR SETTINGS ALONE! YOU REPLACED MY PICS SETTINGS FOR YOUR LAME ONES

    One Drive is not my idea of something good at all. it's just a set up to take our money and now destroy our time and work. I don't use your CHEAP "photos" programs! I don't WANT TO either!!! I have work that I have to do and you are a hindrance, not help! I am forced by others to use OneDrive some, but I work to avoid it. All your great features fade away anyway in a few years and then that disables people more who worked to set their stuff up. I do NOT want to use your…

  11. Enable multiple simultaneous connections / multiple concurrent connections to OneDrive

    By design OneDrive doesn't support multiple simultaneous connections / multiple concurrent connections. When using Citrix Virtual Apps with OneDrive folder redirection enabled on RDSH hosts this is a must.

  13. Full Support for OneDrive as a Remote App in Azure WVD

    The lack of any support for OneDrive as a Remote App without users in a full desktop environment is something that is hampering our full adoption of WVD.

    I have spent the last 2-3 months working on trying to get OneDrive in a workable state only to eventually receive the bad news that "OneDrive as a Remote App is not supported".

    This represents a true challenge for us as many of our LOB applications rely on the ability of users to attach documents to these applications. It is no exaggeration to suggest that having them navigate the folder structure of…

  15. 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.

  19. Enable USB Drive synchronisation with OneDrive account!

    USB Drive synchronisation would make OneDrive even more popular.

    This feature would not only save us from a lot of headaches in case of a drive loss or corruption but would also be helpful when the drive is left at home but the files could be accessed at a workplace computer.

    Please consider this feature at the next Windows 10/Office 365 update.

  20. 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.
