  1. Seeing Recipients When Sharing

    In a recent update, the field for the recipients now scrolls to the left, which makes it difficult to review who you are sharing a file with. This field used to be larger and recipients would be added below each time. That made it easier to review recipients before sharing. The current view is difficult to see them. I recommend reverting to the prior view or expanding this field to make it easier to review on the screen.

  7. I do not want to sync every file because I have too many, I just want to sync some of them.

    It would be great if you give the option to sync only some of the files in the device, that way we can choose which files are going to be synced.

  8. Prevent OneDrive from syncing without permission / Restore option

    I hate the way OneDrive just goes ahead and syncs files on my computer without asking, or even letting me know it's doing it..!

    How about it actually asks permission before sending my files off to the cloud?
    If I want to move stuff there I'll do it myself thanks.. I need my data stored locally - especially for certain programs to work properly..!
    And a restore/revert option (to the original location) to undo the pig's ear that Windows 10 has made of my computer. Thanks a bunch Microsoft!!

  9. OneDrive Needs your Attention - Removed Files

    I've been cleaning old files that are no longer useful. Sometime later I get the "OneDrive needs your Attention" notice and I click it, to find that I have just deleted 900+ files. I know I just erased many files, but 900??? Did I ***** up and sent an entire folder to trash? Your gut clenches and you ponder about RESTORING EVERYTHING (and your cleanup work time goes down the drain) or finding up what happened, what got erased??? And we do not get this option.

    I hope we can get an option of having a "1-click" solution that takes…

  10. No use for this

    I really wish Microsoft would stop trying to push this stuff on me. I'm pretty sure I uninstalled OneDrive or at least disabled it after I installed windows but now I'm seeing a little cloud on the taskbar. I guess an update brought it back.

    Please stop trying to force this stuff on people. Not everyone wants it, in fact, I pretty sure almost no one wants it.

    It's wasting a small amount of my computers resources when it's running even though I've never had anything to do with it. Anyone who would use it would be wasting electricity by…

  12. Poderia ter uma forma de colocar um lembrete para as pessoas lembrarem de atualizar a planilha, algumas esquecem.

    Na hora de fazer o compartilhamento com uma determinada pessoa poderia ter como configurar um lembrete diário, onde se a pessoa não fizer a atualização diária, semanal ou mensal da forma que foi configurado ela fica recebendo notificações no Emil para fazer as atualizações das planilhas compartilhadas.

  14. Use System File Copy for locally synced files

    If you try to copy more than 300.00 files(from the documentation, the actual limit seems to be around 50.000 to 100.000) from the LOCAL OneDrive storage - e.g. from your local Documents folder that is backed up/synced with one drive - even though all files are synced, you cannot copy the folder.

    This is because one drive has a file copy limit and it will use its own copy instead of the System Copy. What makes this a lot worse is that there is not even an error message displayed, the file copy will just look like its running for…

  15. Having the ability to choose not to sync pictures and videos

    If you have a lot of files in the cloud and you want to sync only excel, PDFs, and so on. But you do not want to sync large videos and pictures. Having the option to NOT sync specific file types would have been great!

  16. Sense when files are open and being changed by an app and automatically pause synching those files

    OneDrive currently (Build 21.150....) wastes a lot of CPU time and network bandwidth by syncing files while they are being modified by desktop apps like Quicken.

    If there is a good reason I don't know about to sync open files, then OneDrive should give users the option to specify apps where the files they should not be synced until closed.

    This is different from the many suggestions that users have the option to move large files to the end of the sync queue while they are being synced. For example, this suggestion is that EVERY time an application (or at…

  17. “Sync As <Name>” Option

    This option would allow users to sync folders from OneDrive with a specific folder name. This would be comparable to git-clone, where by default the folder is synced with its original name (sync) and if a name is supplied that name will be the local name for the synced folder (sync as).

    This feature would benefit business users with deep folder structures and lengthy organization names that generate even longer synced folder names.

  18. Change how OneDrive works

    As it is now, OneDrive syncs everything in the folder "Documents" even the shortcuts on the desktop. There is a lot of files being saved on OneDrive, that cant be used anywhere els, than on that device. Like game saves, small downloads, and other stuff that are only eing used by a program on that computer. This takes up a lot of space, and network traffic.

    It should have been made differently from the beginning, where the user selects witch folder, and files should be backed up.
    As it is now, the user risks loosing files, due to a full…
