  2. Prevent downloading of shared folders

    Prevent viewers of a shared folder from being able to download the folder or it's contents. I want to be able to share the folder with meeting data with my colleagues without them being able to download the meeting material.

  3. I've been having problems with not knowing what the symbols are and general mis information. Can you add a small help button on One drive?

    I would like a easy to access help page to help out on me knowing all the information. Preferably near the top (in the circle) however a easy to access help page would be fine!

  4. OneDrive está mais de 5 minutos a procurar alterações, não permitindo o funcionamento do computador.

    É indescritível, o OneDrive estar constantemente a procurar alterações e, desse modo lesando o Utilizador do computador em relação ao iniciar qualquer tarefa.

  8. Stop mixing 'photos' and 'pictures form My files'

    I packed and uploaded thousands of pictures in folders as sketch references through 'My files'. But they are all displayed under the 'Photos' tab.
    It's so hard to find my own photos in this messed-up timeline. It's super annoying!
    The problem is happening on all Onedrive platforms.

  10. Increamental Download

    I would like a feature in Onedrive, which would allow me to download files after certain date, like file updated/uploaded in last week.

  11. Choose to exclude sync for some file types from certain folders

    Choose to exclude sync for some file types from certain folders.
    My music folder has uploaded all the album art to my photos section, effectively making photos unusable. If I could choose, for that folder, to sync only mp3 files and not jpg files that would help.

  12. Make metadata from sharepoint fully accessible in synced document libraries locally.

    Sharepoint makes it possible to sort and find files in a big document library without putting everything in 7 levels of subfolders. Instead you can just add metadata by using predefined or even custom columns. However this fruitful concept breaks when it comes to sync.

    Metadata from Sharepoint isn't even displayed in a synced document library let alone the possibility to filter accordingly or even edit it.

    Please, please add a functionality, I get nuts with alle the uncountable levels of folder hierarchy in big document libraries. The problems of folder hierarchies are manifold, one with a wrecking effect on…

  13. Why OneDrive's Recycle bin is not visible on PC?

    While I am on PC, when I delete a file from connected OneDrive's folder, additionally I need to go to web-version-of-OneDrive's Recycle bin in order to delete it completely.

    Or it would be good, if [Shift+Delete] on PC would delete the file completely without moving it to OneDrive's Recycle bin.

  14. OneDrive should backup the folders we chose different from the 3 folders you chose.

    It's a super system but why are you limiting it? only my documents, desktop and pictures are backed up. Why can't we back up the classers we have chosen? Need to buy another program that will yield more money?

  15. Make OneDrive use less memory

    OneDrive is actually really good, but one thing I have noticed is that it takes up alot of CPU and memory usage on my computer. I'm not sure if there is a way to fix this but it would be very good!

  16. I should be able to exclude folders on my computer from syncing with OneDrive

    Currently I can exclude folders from syncing from Onedrive to my computer, but not the other way round. I use several programs that use the documents folder, but create large files that I don't want to upload to OneDrive. The only option I have to stop this is to stop using OneDrive.

  17. Please add a File Explorer status icon for DLP blocked files

    To help users identify files that have been blocked by DLP rules, add an icon to the status column, or to a new column, to notify them that the file violates DLP policy.
    This icon is visible in OneDrive on the web.

  20. Add a Disconnect/Unmap verb to odopen://

    We use extensively the odopen:// protocol to automatically mount OneDrive libraries.
    Is it possible to have a similar command to "unmount" or unlink a library from a users' profile, ideally also to query linked libraries?
