  1. Fix shared folder syncing for OneDrive Desktop on Windows 10

    I am experiencing issues trying to sync a shared folder (shared with me) to my OneDrive desktop application.

    I called the Microsoft Helpdesk, and I was told this is a known issue in the latest version of OneDrive.

    When is the fix for this issue expected to be put into production?

    Version: OneDrive for Windows - 19.222.1110.0006 (January 6, 2020)

  2. Syn Client

    In may cases we have sharepoint online web sites that have many document libraries. For customers it has been somewhat painful having to sync each library individually so they can have back a persistent mapping on their windows laptop. We keep being asked why cant we have the old explorer view mapping that allowed viewing the whole web site and navigate between each document library in windows explorer. Could we consider an enhancement to the OneDrive Sync Client where it can provide an option of choosing multiple document libraries to sync from a SharePoint Online rather than having to do…

  3. Implement log file feature

    It would be very useful to have access to a log of the processing executed by OneDrive. Something like a list of events shown when clicking on the OneDrive icon i.e. filename, operation type, time, but with a longer history of changes viewable.

  5. OneDrive almost full notification covers up options in taskbar menu app

    when your at 80% full on your free one drive the app page from the taskbar is to small to properly use all the featuresin the app. yet the app page extending from the taskbar could be extended so the notification of how full the OneDrive is will still be shown with the option for upgrading. however the functions of the app wont be affected by said notification. thus a better user friendly taskbar app.

  7. Transfer files and folders in a downward hierarchy instead of all the top folders, then horizontally down and down and down.

    Transfer files and folders in a downward hierarchy instead of all the top folders, then horizontally down and down and down.

    I have to wait for a folder tree until the the last horizontal folder of most folder hierarchy be moved until any folder is complete.

    When I had a terabyte on OneDeive, it all starts with the User folder, then down one level to, say Documents and Photos. Then 100 folders under each, then they kept going say 5 deep. Well, I had to wait through all the hundreds of top folders be done, then wait for each horizontal…

  9. Add Sync Setting for One Drive (don't sync on login; set sync for later).

    Hello,
    Please add the ability to set the sync schedule for One Drive. The syncing ties up my computer on each login... I have to go into the settings on every login, and manual change the settings to "Delay for Two Hours" .... **** PLEASE add the ability for me to set the schedule (e.g. "Sync at Midnight" or at a specific time)... at least add the ability to save the choice "Delay for Two Hours" (so I don't have to reset it each login) .... Thanks

  11. Delete local files when access to cloud storage is removed

    When access to a SharePoint site is removed for a user, sync just breaks and all locally synced files become "orphans". Owners of Microsoft Teams, with files stored on SharePoint, that remove a user from the team do not expect that user to have a copy of all files still on the laptop. The expectation is that any local sync is removed when access for that user in the cloud is removed.

  13. Renaming UPN in e.g. Azure AD is not seen as same account by OneDrive.

    When changing the logon UPN of an account in Azure AD. The account should be the same as the previous account. But OneDrive considers these as different accounts.

    e.g. renaming bla@contoso.com to blabla@contoso.com the account is technically the same account, identified by the AD object id.

    When can this situation arise? E.g. a divorce where the last name is changed back to the maiden name for instance.

  14. Vague dialog to restore deleted files

    Don't have a vague, unsolicited dialog box pop up weeks after work was done, that, if answered wrong, causes OneDrive to undo 8 hours worth of work. At the very least, when it happens, provide a way to re-fix the problem your bad software caused. ********-it you guys suck.

  15. Allow synchronisation to be stopped in the current state. Whether files are offline, pinned or unpinned, allow all sync operations to stop.

    My work account is at 'processing change' and my personal account is 'looking for changes'. The work on WAS synced until I added a sync sharepoint folder, and now it's constantly looking for changes.

    My personal account varies between 10,000 and 140,000 file changes, but never syncs fully.

    It would be nice to have an option to say 'kill the sync' and just allow onedrive to accept the state of offline, pinned or unpinned files. I could then use the overay icons (or the O, P and U file attributes) to find folders that are not synced yet, and then…

  16. Allow external non-Office 365 Business users to sync OneDrive Shares

    Please allow external users who don't have a OneDrive for Business account (i.e., users with a personal OneDrive account only) to sync shared folders to their local computers. We can already grant edit access to external, personal users, which works fine through a web browser. Also, external users with O365 business accounts can sync our shares. But the combination is not possible: external personal users can't sync. This is FORCING us to drop OneDrive and go back to DropBox, which supports this seamlessly even in their free service.

    While better not to constrain the size/amount of syncable files based on…

  17. Auto save

    One drive should concentrate on the basics. It is possibly the worst cloud storage at those.
    Make sure my files are safe. Not from bin Laden, just from error. Errors which occur when a file is open and being worked on but something happens to the internet connection.
    OneDrive should save to the device physical storage first then back that up to the cloud. Too many times there are sync errors and a duplicate file is made.

    You end up spending hours pouring back through your lengthy documents just to try and remember what changes you made to which version…

  20. Informação ao contrário

    Há informação ao contrário na sincronização do Cofre Pessoal do OneDrive no Windows 10. Quando ele está disponível, aberto, com status em cor azul, aparece a inscrição "O Cofre Pessoal está bloqueado" e no contrário, em vermelho, também há informação estranha ao contrário.
