  2. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. When file-on-demand is enabled on OneDrive sync client, a disparity exists between storage actually consumed and that displayed

    When file-on-demand is enabled on OneDrive sync client, a disparity exists between storage actually consumed and that displayed


    ■Description(内容):
    容量の節約を行うためにファイルオンデマンドの機能を利用しているが、実際にローカルのストレージを消費していないにも関わらず、OS 上は実際にストレージを消費しているとして、ストレージが不足している旨のメッセージが表示される。
    OS と OneDrive 同期クライアントのストレージの使用量のデータに齟齬が出ないよう機能の拡充を希望する。

    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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

    OneDrive for Business のネットワーク帯域幅は、現在同期に必要とされるネットワーク負荷についてのみ想定されている状況ですが、同期クライアント アプリの更新に伴うネットワーク負荷を下げるような機能については提供には至っていない状況です。

    利用環境によっては、ネットワークの逼迫を回避するために計画的な OneDrive 同期クライアント アプリのアップデートを実行しているが、重要な更新プログラムのリリースが必要とされる場合は 60 日間の猶予期間が省略されることがあるため、想定外のネットワークの逼迫が発生してしまい、広範囲での影響を及ぼします。
    そのため、ネットワーク帯域幅については同期利用時のみではなく、同期クライアントの更新に関してもネットワーク負荷を下げるような機能を早急に用意してほしいです。​

    The network bandwidth of OneDrive for Business is currently based only on the network load required for synchronization, but the feature to reduce the network load due to update of the sync client application has not yet been provided.

    According to the usage environment, we have been executing updates for the OneDrive sync client app in order to avoid an overstrained network, if an important update program needs to be released sometimes the grace period…

  13. 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…

  14. Backup Important PC Folders - Additional Options

    "Backup Important PC Folders" should have additional options to include all the primary user profile folders - particularly Contacts, Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Favorites, Music, Pictures and Videos.

    The most important ones would be Favorites and Videos to add to the mix, but realistically it should even include the 3D Objects folder.

    This would not only make IT environments far easier to automatically back up, but also personal use of OneDrive would be far more beneficial to the average user.

  16. Customize email to managers of terminated employees

    Please make it possible for admins to customize the email to managers. The out of the box email contains spelling errors and is very spammy/phishy feeling.

    I can't believe this isn't an option in this world of cyber attacks!

    I want the ability to brand the email so it matches (at least as closely as possible) our corporate standards.

    I want to be able to format the text so it is easily readable, conforms to our style standards and basically looks professional.

  19. Allow external non-Office 365 Business users to sync OneDrive Shares

    Please allow external users who don't have a OneDrive for Business account (i.e., users with a personal OneDrive account only) to sync shared folders to their local computers. We can already grant edit access to external, personal users, which works fine through a web browser. Also, external users with O365 business accounts can sync our shares. But the combination is not possible: external personal users can't sync. This is FORCING us to drop OneDrive and go back to DropBox, which supports this seamlessly even in their free service.
