  2. 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.

  4. 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…

  6. Email alerts for OneDrive Sync health

    The OneDrive sync health centre is quite cool but currently, there doesn't seem to be a way to get an email notification if a device has a OneDrive error so requires the status page to be checked manually.

    Would be great if we can get an email notification if a device has sync errors.

  10. When I click on a file in OneDrive file explorer, allow streaming of it instead of having to download the file before opening it.

    For example, a large video would take minutes to download just to watch it on my file explorer. If I go to the OneDrive website or open it on my phone, I can stream it immediately. You should have this streaming capability built into windows natively. It's a no-brainer. Allow for storage offline obviously. But also stream stuff that's in the cloud.

    Tree view display in OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams クライアントにて OneDrive for Business を利用しています。

  13. Provide feature of delayed syncing

    During the Work from home scenario, when directly working on the Network drive(via VPN) is slow. People often copy files to C drive. After checking files, they delete unwanted files. During this process, as soon as people copy files to the local drive, syncing starts and it does affect the performance of the Laptop. Also, if I am deleting a file or Moving it to a folder then get an error sync in progress. It would be great if a feature of delayed syncing can be introduced. Like newly added file get synced after 1 hour. By that time, people…

  14. Submit translation corrections/suggestions

    Please provide a method to easily submit translation fixes/suggestions. These are minor, mostly cosmetic changes, which is less likely to get voted on. Will it be possible to provide a simple form or streamlined feedback mechanism, outside features and issue reporting? This would save time for both the developers and users.

  15. Afrikaans translation

    Afrikaans translation.
    "Pause synchronization" has been translated as "Pouseer sinchronisasie", this phrase does not exist in Afrikaans.
    Correct would be "Laat staan sinkronisasie", "Stel sinkronisasie uit", "Wag met sinkronisasie" or even "Halt sinkronisasie" - which is not 100% (more correct for "Stop synchronization")

  16. Admins should be able to restore OneDrive recycle bin data to an alternate location.

    Admins should be able to restore OneDrive recycle bin data to an alternate location. This would, as an example, allow admins to restore deleted data outside of the OneDrive sync location in order to review this data and determine if it should or should not have been deleted and whether or not it should be integrated back to production locations.

  20. 關於onedrive資料夾名稱設定

    使用商業版的onedrive在資料夾內他會自己設定成: onedrive - 公司中文名稱,其中在onedrive與公司中文名稱中間的"-"前後都有空格,不知其空格是否可以拿掉?

    因為下XCOPY或ROBOCOPY指令時會產生錯誤,敬請協助調整。謝謝!
