  1. Microsoft should bring in a archival tool to archive the versions stored for files on demand on one drive. this would help to resolve issue

    Running the archival tool would help manual deletion of versions for folks who work completely from one drive. As and when you open old files, a new version is created and I had versions upto 300 numbers for same file. Archival tool is like clearing cache so small program can be written to fix this issue.

      • Label

        As a OneDrive sync client user, I want to be able to use Labels instead of having to go to the online view document detail.

        Unified labelling management in the Security & Compliance Center is available to configure Labels to support regulation like GDPR and start designing protection of information. Assuming you published Labels and configured DLP rules the missing feature to provide a great user experience is to have the OneDrive sync client exposing this labels on the sync client UI or as an explorer new menu.

        • Fix my bug please. I can't be then only one, weeks and weeks of pain.

          I cannot delete this file, or the folder it is in. This literally breaks my PC, and my ability to sync. I will not pay for this any more. Customer lost. Weeks and weeks of "Looking for changes" do you actually employ developers and QAs? It seems not.

          • re-write OneDrive until it functions like a robust Cloud backup and storage utility

            OneDrive is absolute pants. It's extremely slow and can't be relied upon to function consistently. I need to rely upon ODrive to utilise my OneDrive storage quota to get required speed and functionality. It's a real blot on Microsoft's cloud storage offering - it's dreadful.

            • Reminders re syncing.

              Periodically, I manually save .pst files to OneDrive because I know they don't automatically sync. I don't need a reminder from my PC every morning telling me these files haven't synced. It's a useless piece of information that I don't need.

                        • OneDrive is unusable, subscription going to be cancelled

                          Days and days of "Looking for changes" or "Sync Pending", and no syncing. Ridiculously slow. Causes issues over and over with files I can't delete. "Clashes" all the time with the EXACT SAME FILE. No way to schedule sync, so when it does actually sync it destroys my internet connection.

                          Not other cloud sync software has had even *one* of these problems for me, ever

                          This software is barely Alpha, and if you expect business people to use this for critical functions, you are kidding yourself.

                                Like a lot of other people, I’ve had a recurring issue with OneDrive saying it was syncing files but never finishes syncing. Since OneDrive doesn’t have a way to show you what it’s trying to sync, I used the Windows Sysinternals app ‘Process Monitor’ to see exactly what OneDrive was doing.

                                After launching Process Monitor, I searched for OneDrive, right-clicked the entry and selected “Include ‘OneDrive.exe’” from the drop-down. This filtered the list so only the OneDrive process entries were shown.

                                I found a lot of repeated references to telemetryCache and SyncEngine files, which I ignored, but the only file…

                                • I feel there is overreach in one drive taking over the sync of my desktop without explanation

                                  the one drive desktop sync is "out of the blue" for those of us who simply use one drive for cloud storage.

                                  One drive is like a bull in a china shop.

                                  There should be an Introduction tutorial if a process is going to eliminate our data in a way that we do not expect.

                                  Microsoft is great in many ways but too much is assumed by those who are designing new features.

                                  There should be a whole department organized to serve as a liaison for explaining to neophytes unexpected consequences of a new application's function.

                                        • Don't set the program to $&^$$#ing dump the files when someone is trying to get a folder to no longer sync. Just because you think X files s

                                          Make the option to not sync a lot more user friendly. Like not deleting the files on my ******* computer because I try to stop synching. The files are synched TO the cloud service not from it. If I stop a synch that should not delete the files from the computer. especially the one it came from. 50gigs of photos from over a decade that have survived some severe corrupts and crashes and Microsoft's heavy handed 'knowing what is good for you' nearly wipes it all away in one badly set up format. My suggestion, make this ****** program removable.
