  2. Let one drive fetch files from this PC - doesn't work on all PCs

    I have ticked the option as instructed on both my PC and my Surface Pro expecting to see both devices on my OneDrive Brower, but I only see my Surface not my PC.

  4. option to retry failed uploads

    When an upload fails give the option to "retry" rather than just telling us to try again in a few minutes.

  6. Toolbar options and actions for OneDrive

    1) Include the names of the files that are being synced (upload/download/updating changes), not only the total size of the files remain up to completion.
    2) Allow to pause and resume sync.
    3) Make the OneDrive show recent files that were synced and shared through the cloud when pressing the OneDrive icon in the toolbar.
    3) Another thought, please create a OneDrive app for the Windows Store! I thing it'll be somewhat more convenient to manage files as it's done in-browser, or like in the mobile app.

  7. Needs to have a comparrison tool so is does not create dupicates

    Needs to basically have the ability to realize the copies in OneDrive are the exact same thing as the ones already in the folder. By comparing the names and then the data. AKA images can be compared. if it can't compare the file (unknown .ext.) then ask the user. Otherwise this create copies of everything is ******** when the user has a folder of 100+ items. In any case is Should ask the user when more then 5 copies are to be made. ASK. Same hey are these the same thing? (Y/N)

  8. At least offer to skip if path is too long.

    Moving a folder from dropbox to onedrive that contains a bunch of pluralsight(development examples) has turned into a nightmare

  10. Option to synchronize screenshots on Windows Mobile (Phone) 10

    This option exists on desktop, please add it to mobile. It would be especially helpful for writing documentation / email / etc. on the pc about apps and other experiences on the phone.

  15. Re-work the OneDrive mechanism in Windows 10 to allow files to be made online only

    My Dell Inspiron 5537 originally ran Windows 8.0. As with many other Windows power users, I am far more satisfied with Windows 10. But one feature I miss in Windows 8.1 is that I used to be able to open documents, pictures, videos, etc. directly in my OneDrive folder via the File Explorer over an internet connection without those files taking up space on my laptop's hard drive. My laptop's hard drive can hold 1 TB of data (917 GB, actually), and now that I am in the practice of ordering DVD sets from Amazon with every episode of TV…

  16. Throw away the "current" OneDrive for Business and add the "New Generation OneDrive for Business" as a Standard

    The "current" doesn't work. Had to use 2 hours of Support time to download, install and setup the "New Generation". This is cost ineffective for you and annoying for us.
