  1. Remove the premium diamond

    As the premium diamond is associated with the awful freemium business models to earn money, OneDrive (which should be considered a professional tool) gets a bad association attached to it.

    Solution: Use text only or a something more business related icon.

  2. Anyone using my PC will be able to access all my files thru Settings/ Choose folders. Better if the app prompt password for "Choose Folder".

  3. Disable screenshot notification only

    The "Automatically save screenshots I capture to OneDrive".
    It will be good to disable this notification on Windows as we always know that we save screenshots to OneDrive.

    This is to minimize notification clutter for users who takes lots of screenshots.

  6. Exclude specific folders from

    I would really, really like to see the option to exclude specific sub-folders from Onedrive.

    For example, my AntiVirus Password Vault folder is automatically placed in the Windows Documents folder (cannot be changed), and every time I add a new password to the Password Vault, the content of that folder changes obviously.

    Onedrive then tries to sync the changes but throws a sync error because the Password Vault folder is in use.

    I then have to shut down my AntiVirus and only then the Onedrive sync errors disappears and syncing continues as normal.

    I have seen so many forum posts…

  7. Reduce battery drain when trying to sync open files

    When a file (e.g. Word) is kept open, OneDrive gives an error message that the file cannot by synced. It will retry to resync it every minute strarting a full sync cycle. A sync cycle on my OneDrive takes about 15 seconds with full CPU usage on one core (30 K small files on the drive). So having 1 file open effectively means my laptop keeps running at full CPU on one core fore a quarter of the time.
    .
    Solution: Please do not do a full sync when files are open, but check them separately. Checking every minute should…

  8. Ask before adding .tif files to my photos stream

    I have thousands of data files downloaded from NASA which are data and not pictures. Onedrive thinks they are photos so when I try and scroll through my photos on my phone I have to go through thousands of data files.

  15. Allow use of the OneDrive for Business sync client with Windows Storage Server

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Windows Storage Server で、OneDrive for Business の同期クライアントを使用できるようにして欲しい
    Allow use of the OneDrive for Business sync client with Windows Storage Server


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、OneDrive for Business の同期クライアントのシステム要件では、要件を満たすオペレーティング システムに Windows Storage Server が、含まれていません。Windows Storage Server にて利用可能となることで、ユーザーの利便性はさらに向上するため、Windows Storage Server で OneDrive for Business の同期クライアントを使用可能となることを希望します。

    At present, the Windows Storage Server does not meet the listed system requirements as an operating system for the OneDrive for Business sync client. It would improve usability if people could use OneDrive for Business with Windows Storage Server, so please make changes to allow its use.

  16. OneDrive check for EndPoint Encryption

    Our organization has been considering going to OneDrive, but Security is a concern. It would be great to have OneDrive check for client encryption before allowing OneDrive file syncs. This will be a huge benefit for our organization to move to OneDrive.

  17. There is a sync issue in OneDrive

    When there is a sync issue, I see the message "There is a sync issue in OneDrive"
    Below this it says "Click here to learn more about the issue and how to resolve it". When I "click here", I get a list of the problem files but only rarely is there any information on what the issue is or how to resolve it.

  18. Bypass Problem Files

    I have programs that lock files while they are open. When OneDrive encounters one of these files, it stops syncing. I can sometimes fix this by pausing and restarting syncing, but sometimes that doesn't work. It would be much better if problem files would not stop syncing.
