  1. Select More Types of Default Folders When Using The Manage Backup Feature

    Its great that we have a backup feature provided to us. Apparently, there are other default folders that we want to backup and manage as well.

    Additionally, we should be able to select as to what file/folder should be backedup. In that way we can manage the size of the OneDrive storage as well.

    Its about time to have these types of features implemented as this is implemented by other Cloud Storage provider like Google.

  2. Allow users to change the OneDrive folder directory (long company name issue)

    The default folder for OneDrive (by design) creates a problem that it conflicts with the maximum 255 character path length issue.

    For a persons business OneDrive area
    C:\user\FirstnameLastname\OneDrive - LongCompanyName

    For a Company Group/Team site
    C:|users\FirstnameLastname\LongCompanyName\LongCompanyName - LibraryName

    It means that you are massively restricted on how you can use OneDrive to avoid reaching the 255 character path length limit.

    I contacted support and i am told this is "by design", it isn't really fit for the purpose, other cloud storage providers dont have this issue and allow you to change it, it is such a simple feature.

  3. How to turn off notification that one drive is full or near full

    include how to turn off notifications that one drive is almost full or full when the notification is sent. That way I don't have to keep getting a notification I don't want.

  4. Why do you need 500 votes in order to respond?

    I hope that you respond to all useful ideas. Setting 500 votes seems a bit ridiculous. It appears that the only way someone will vote for the excellent ideas I have posted today is if they search for something similar and see my ideas. I would hope that you (the OD managers) review all ideas and classify them as potentially useful or useless. I agree that ideas you class useless only need a response when they reach a certain number of votes.

  5. Please allow us to define a time each day for OneDrive to upload to the cloud

    I use OD mainly to backup my data (and other) drives. I cannot now link my data drive directly to OD cloud since files that I work with may change many times each day. So what I have to do is to have a copy of my data drive in the OneDrive partition on my computer and synchronize the two drives at the end of each day. PLEASE OneDrive, give us an option to set the time each day when OD checks for changes in files, so it could for example do it at 5:00 PM.

    While you are (hopefully)…

  6. Please change OneDrive so that it sends files to my computer with their modified date, not their download date

    When I download files from OneDrive cloud, it stores the downloaded date on my computer not the file modified data, although the latter is stored on OD cloud. PLEASE get OD to transmit the file to my computer with its modified date. The current system makes OD TOTALLY USELESS for general file backup as I must (i) know when files were created or modified, and (ii) be able to sort files in a folder by date.

  7. Zugriffsprobleme automatisch bearbeiten

    Neuerdings gibt es immer wieder einmal Probleme mit Zugriffsberechtigungen (weißes x in rotem Kreis auf dem Wolkensymbol) Fehlermeldung x Dateien konnten nicht synchronisiert werden, anscheinend haben Sie keine Zugriffsberechtigung.
    Wie ich inzwischen gelernt habe lässt sich dieses Problem durch Schließen von OneDrive und anschließendes Wieder-Öffnen beheben. Daher schlage ich vor, eine Routine zu programmieren, die im Fall eines Fehlers mit Zugriffsproblemen zunächst das Programm schließt und neu startet, erst nach zwei erfolglosen Reparaturversuchen sollte die Fehlermeldung ausgegeben werden.

  8. Auto Save for Office - only works with OneDrive - why?

    Auto Save for Office - only works with OneDrive - why? I keep local copies of my documents (because OneDrive is full of BUGS) so why can't I use AutoSave in Word? Can't MS developers make this happen. I know I could code this!

  9. stop the insanity

    stop the insanity - stop going by votes to decide how to improve OneDrive (or ANY product). First, provide support - by PHONE, EMAIL, and ALL AVAILABLE MEANS. Next, fix all known bugs. then worry about extras. stop the insanity.

  12. Fix delete issue using limited connection

    When I turn on the limited connection mode and when the OneDrive sync is on pause, I cannot delete items that are synchronized in OneDrive anymore.
    It would be good to be able to delete items even when OneDrive is on pause.

  13. Neue Schaltfläche

    Wenn man eine Datei hat, die sich nicht hochladen lässt, wird dies ja in einer Liste dargestellt was es für eine ist. Nur ich habe das Problem, dass ich sehr viele Ordner habe und die betreffende Datei meist nicht auf Anhieb finden kann. So währe es sinnvoll, einen Schalter neben jeder Fehlerhaften Datei einzubauen, die einem direkt in das Verzeichnis bringt von wo man diese Datei umbenennen oder löschen kann. So braucht man nicht lange zu suchen.

  14. New icon doesn't work with white background

    OneDrive icons has been update recently and it doesn't work with Windows 7. If i have OneDrive icon hidden in the notification tray, it is just invisible as icon is white and doesn't have an outline, so it disappears on a white background.

  15. Make a function that allows you to back up all your files at a certain time of your choosing

    This function would allow for people with slower computers to sync any files all at once while they are away from their computer meaning they don't have to have it running non stop slowing their computer. Instead all at once the files will be backed up.

  18. How Can I Get My Diploma When My School Dismissed Me?

    Studying abroad is not easy. I think it is the consensus that most overseas students have. In a strange country and strange environment, students have to adapt to the unfamiliar language and environment. It is not easy for students overseas. Studying abroad is bitter, but paying tuition fees is more bitter. But the most bitter thing is to fail to get the diploma when they graduate.So studying abroad bitter, but it is nothing compared with failing to get the diploma.
