  3. Please let me permanently delete the folder called saved pictures!

    I use OneDrive on my laptop and my main computer. I don't know how many times I've deleted the saved pictures folder but it keeps coming back.

  5. Peer to peer sync

    OneDrive needs the ability to sync directly between devices, especially for syncing with SharePoint libraries that would be synced for multiple users.

    This would mean a huge decrease in traffic for remote sites with limited data connections or even to help keep large number of devices in sync without the WAN overhead.

  7. Automatically "Save Space" if files are not accessed

    The ability to save space is awesome. However, you can innovate this idea further by allowing users to configure a time-period (1 week, 1 month) etc. in which OneDrive will automatically remove files locally and store them online only.

  8. Add email associated to process name in Task Manager

    If you add 2 email: @live and @company to onedrive, task manager shows 2 process with same name. it would be nice to display which process is associated to each email address in case they are stuck and we need to collect a memory dump

  9. Gerber and HPGL file viewers for OneDrive

    I'd like to see Gerber and HPGL viewers added to the 'New File Viewers for OneDrive, SharePoint and Teams'

    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-OneDrive-Blog/New-File-Viewers-for-OneDrive-SharePoint-and-Teams/bc-p/217169#M829

    Gerber is the industry-standard file format used in the production of printed circuit boards and HPGL is a legacy plotter language still in use and valuable as a way to import images from CAD/PCB programs into CorelDRAW, etc.

  10. Bring OneDrive UWP and OneDrive Desktop closer together

    There are still a lot of differences between OneDrive UWP and OneDrive Desktop that need to grow closer together.


    • UWP allows multiple OneDrive accounts, Desktop only 1 or 1 Personal and One Business

    • UWP offline/sync has nothing to do with Desktop Sync but should be one system

    • Browsing files with Explorer on OneDrive works very nice with Online/Offline files, but with UWP app this is only an interface into Online OneDrive files

    • UWP OneDrive could evolve to UWP File Explorer somehow

  11. I want you all to go **** yourselves. That is my idea for you. Hey you have been loyal to MS for 10 years. But now we want $100 a year *****

    Please take a moment to accept that I have never been more angry with you than I am now. I'd love for you despite having purchase 365 for 5 years and then a discount Office 2016, you took away 995 GB of storage with out telling us.

    I'd like to advise you to kiss me somewhere but, I don't think you'll comprehend the ire you are about to receive. I will be upgrading to 500 GB on google. Goodbye.

  12. One Drive App Paswword

    We have Multi-Factor Authentication and use it extensively across Windows 10 and Android devices. The App Password works well for emails however it would be useful to allow this for OneDrive on Android and Windows 10 PC. We have a secure "workspace" folder on the devices so security in this sense is not compromised.
    Please can we have App Passwords across all platforms and apps. Thank you

    How am I supposed to upload larger amounts of data? I have 600 GB to sync overall and I've only had 15 GB synced in 24 hours. I have a fast cable connection. This is insane, absolutely ridiculous.

  14. Improve the Modern UI Sorting\Viewing for Images

    My wife has a Surface 2, and we recently moved all our kids photos from PhotoBucket....

    Problem that needs addressing: It's sorting by name or something, and new files are at the end of like a few thousand photos. So if you want to see new pictures it's 5 minutes of scrolling right to get to the end....then the wait for the thumbs to catch up. I would like SORTING to be an option, like by last modified\added or something.

    Also, bug here...if we change our Pictures\Video folder to an SD card location OneDrive doesn't auto-backup the cameraroll anymore.

  16. Please don't create situation which forces us to go for office365. Raise the 5 GB mark. That's it. Thanks

    Don't force one into accepting Office365. Raise the 5 GB mark. Windows is already lagging behind Google Drive in all respects.

  17. File Conflicts dialog does not show timestamps

    When file conflicts are detected, say you have 20 conflicts.. you must "click to resolve" each one, it is then expected that you will open each file and review it OR make a duplicate of each file.

    The dialog should display both files with timestamps next to them so you can easily choose which one to keep

    Sometimes when you open a file to review conflicts there is nothing different inside it either!

    Make the delete circle bigger/larger and don't have all of the previously checked boxes go away if you accidently touch the wrong portion of the picture. Ask if we wanted to perform this action or something of that nature.

    I have a business OneDrive account and synchronize files with my desk top at work and with my lap top at home so I can work on them when I'm not in the office.

    I have noticed that OneDrive assigns wrong dates to my files on one drive.

    Today is Sunday 15 July. I just opened a file on my laptop that I had been working on yesterday (Saturday 14 July). But all yesterday's changes are gone. As if OneDrive has replaced the newer version on my laptop with the older online version. When I look at the modified date…

  20. OneDrive security - Prevent everyone to share a file when they are not the owner

    I created one file, in this case a OneNote NoteBook and shared it with friend A with "Required user to sign in before accesssing docuemnt" via OneNote for Desktop. When friend A received the invitation email from me, he clicked the link "View in OneDrive" then he still can view and edit my NoteBook immediately wihtout login in to his Live account first. Then he can just share the link he got from the invitation email and send it to everyone else and they all can view and edit my NoteBook without my permission.

    If he logs into his Live…
