  2. It does not show the path/properties of the deleted/uploading files!

    OneDrive just shows a list of deleted files without the paths and other properties of the deleted/added/uploading/downloading files and folders. (Just name of the files are listed; thus, you don't know the files are belong to which nested folders during uploading/downloading)

    You will find these kinds of information/statistics more efficient when you have multiple nested folders, working in a team, and especially a huge number of files.

    At least it should provide a useful and clear report about processed files when it syncs the local folder with the cloud.

  3. Change Name of renamed Teamsites in Onedrive-Client automatically

    The local folder has still the old name of a renamed teamsite.

    The synchronisation runs, but for getting the new name for the local folder, you must stop the synchronisation, delete the local folder, and synchronize new the renamed teamsite.

    It will be great, if the onedrive-client recognize the new name of the teamsite and change the local folder automatically at next start.

  4. Extra Warnings from Accidental Deletions of Sync-ed Files, when I'm not the Owner/Creator

    When Syncing locally a folder created by another user within the organization. If the person deletes some or all of the folder's contents within Windows, the deletes should not get reflected remotely without various warnings and 'Are you sure?' asked by the one drive app when performing the sync, especially since I am not the same person that created the files in the first place.

  7. OneDrive está mais de 5 minutos a procurar alterações, não permitindo o funcionamento do computador.

    É indescritível, o OneDrive estar constantemente a procurar alterações e, desse modo lesando o Utilizador do computador em relação ao iniciar qualquer tarefa.

  8. Exluding folders/syncing selected folders.

    It would very handy you can select some local folders and make them a Onedrive folder whitout moving them to the Onedrive library. I have a "mother"computer were everyting is saved and orginised and it would be really handy to enter certain folders from my chromebook.
    a sort of sulution is the back up function, but in my opinion this is way to massive. you can only select the complete documents folder were there are a lot of folders and documents that i don't want to put in my onedrive.
    also some software linked folders are locked and onedrive gives…

  9. Selecting backups when starting to sync with OneDrive

    ■Title(件名):

    Selecting backups when starting to sync with OneDrive


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive 同期クライアントにて、同期初回設定時に "フォルダーをバックアップ" 画面が表示され、デスクトップ・ドキュメント・写真フォルダーを同期するか選択するような動作に変更された。
    データロスト防止の観点から、誤って同期しないようにしたいので、以前のような動作に変更する機能を追加してほしい。

    When carrying out the initial syncing settings on the OneDrive client, the “Backup folders” screen is now displayed, and you can select whether or not to sync the Desktop, Documents or Photos folders.
    From the standpoint of aiming to prevent data loss, we would like to prevent users from accidentally failing to sync these, so please add a way to set the client to work as it did previously.

  13. Request to implement a function to control other users from accessing the OneDrive for Business sync folder on shared devices

    ■Title(件名):
    共有端末において、 他のユーザーが OneDrive for Business の同期フォルダーへアクセスさせないよう制御する機能の実装要望

    Request to implement a function to control other users from accessing the OneDrive for Business sync folder on shared devices

    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business を同期すると既定で C ドライブに同期フォルダーが作成され、認証なしでアクセスできてしまう。
    共有端末のため、他のユーザーが認証なしで同期フォルダーへアクセスできないよう、機能の拡充を希望いたします。

    When you sync OneDrive for Business, a sync folder is created on the C drive by default, and you can access it without authentication.
    Since it is a shared terminal, we would like to expand the functions so that other users cannot access the sync folder without authentication.

  14. extend the list of recently synced files

    On desktop, when left-clicking the OneDrive icon in the task tray a list of the recently synced files appears. This list is limited to show only the last 100 synced files.

    I suggest to give users the possibility to change that limit to a custom number, or with some options like the following:
    - show only the files synced in the last 24 hours
    - show only the last X synced files (where X is any whole number given by the user)
    - show all synced files since startup

    I would personally find very useful be to be able to…

  16. Allow update when shutting down & Pause while in use.

    OneDrive causes problems to some programs by constantly trying to update. I would like OneDrive to pause on Restart and ask to resume as a shutdown function. This way, when work is completed, Shutdown-Yes I want to update OneDrive-Computer will shutdown when up to date-Next Boot will Pause OneDrive.

  18. Sincronizar otras unidades de almacenamiento

    No entiendo por que aun no se incorpora la opción de sincronizar otras unidades de discos que no seas la C. Ojala que sea tomada en cuenta mi sugerencia que muchos la estamos pidiendo.

  19. Show thumbnails when using "Files on demand"

    As mentioned we need thumbnails to show when using files on demand. In my case looking for thumbnails for solidworks and autocad which do show when not suing files on demand.

  20. Sync OneNote notebook file to desktop, rather than shortcut

    This would allow OneNote (Store App) users to back up notebooks in a straightforward way.
