  3. Make OneDrive sharing more like dropbox

    Would be nice if when you share a folder with a internal user that the user would be able to add that folder directly to there one drive. Right now it goes to a company sharepoint folder which is very confusing. Take a lesson from Google drive or Dropbox as there folder sharing system is seamless and easy to use.

    To add to the complexity the user must log into the web portal to accomplish this. Would be nice to perform all sharing one drive tasks right in the desktop app

  4. Improve the use of Desktop, Documents and Pictures back up on a new computer

    Improve the way of using Manage Back up by enabling the synchronization back to the same folders on a new computer in order to take advantage of the copy of data already present in the Cloud (today it's needed to cut/paste back the folders, stop synchronization, wait until everything is deleted and then activate the Manage back up again !!)

  5. Can't access One Drive

    Hi, I have a problem to access One Drive. It said that "Your sign-in was successful but does not meet the criteria to access this resource.
    You should specific to user that which are the criteria, why let user guess by themselves for what happened? It waste time to try to access it to do my urgent task. It should provide better suggestion to support user.
    Thanks.
    Thanks.

  6. Stop stopping on poor network

    OneDrive sync (and similar in Office apps) works great when I have a fast network connection, and I can work fine one synced files when offline. But when I have a poor connection (e.g. on a train, which happens a lot) the Office app often waits a long time to get file info from the cloud, or to sync changes.

    As I have my whole OneDrive synced to my hard disk, precisely because I'm on the road a lot, it would be better to use the local version; and then sync when available. This should be done in background, not…

  8. I hope we can choose if we need lock the personal vault

    Hi, I'm a Chinese user. Today, I uploaded many files into my personal vault in Onedrive. But sync made me crazy. I had to stay before my laptop, so that I could unlock the personal vault as soon as it locked. I like to download all files in my disk, but when the personal vault is locked, all files will stop sync.

    I want to know if I can choose to close auto-locking the personal vault . Or, can you give me a choose, auto-lock it after 1 hours, 2 hours......

    really thanks.

  10. Autolock

    Asking that's all. How automatic and clever is this Personal Vault?

    I've finished my work, go to lock PV but can't as the note says we're still processing changes. Is there a trigger to follow this up and lock after finished its process? As I'm walking away now to go eat.

    But would be nice it was finished, locked and secure when I return....

  11. Allow renaming of Synced Folders (not root, tho agree should do too)

    I work in a company on multiple projects, with a standard folder structure for each project, and need to sync the same folders from multiple projects to produce cost roll up reports. This causes an issue in OneDrive as the synced folders all have the same name, and so are indistinguishable.

    E.g.
    CompanyTenant/Projects/Project01/Commerical/AfP/
    CompanyTenant/Projects/Project02/Commerical/AfP/
    CompanyTenant/Projects/Project03/Commerical/AfP/

    Syncs to:
    CompanyTenant-AfP
    CompanyTenant-AfP(1)
    CompanyTenant-AfP(2)

    I would like to rename the local folder to something meaningful and keep the sync working, but unable to due to OneDrive restrictions.

    Please note: This is different to the renaming of the root folder issue, which I also agree…

  12. Support IPv6

    The current implementation seems to only support IPv4. My local Internet Connection is divided - IPv4 runs over a very slow Connection, IPv6 over another quick Connection. When I sync, OneDrive does it only via the slow ipv4-connection.

  14. add guest users in the people picker

    When I share a document or a folder from my PC I cannot find the guest users in the people picker, but I see only inside the organization user
    Insetead I believe that it should be usefull that I can share easly to users not in the organization without that I need to open the folder online in the browser and then share it by using sharepoint online.
    thanks a lot

  15. Show a notification when syncing stops (e.g. due to sign-in)

    The OneDrive desktop app on Windows does not notify the user if syncing stops. It should show a notification prompting the user to resolve the issue, e.g. by signing in again.

  17. one-click removal of ONEDrive

    I was subbed without my knowing - uninformed consent - and when I went to uninstall it I was told I I did not have the IT administrator's permission. this computer is mine, and mine alone. Already, I am under the control of Microsoft with no options after falling for their trickery. It needs to be easier to get out of this! I am forced to accept the terms of service in order to get this poster. Not my idea! What's a person supposed to do?

  18. OneDrive Needs to Be Able to Access two drives on the same computer.

    I have, as many do, two 512 GB SSD drives on my laptop. I have a one TB OneDrive account. It can access only one of the two drives. It should be able to sync with folders on both drives.

  19. Personal Vault is a good idea but...

    Not an idea, more of a moan! OneDrive is updating into my PV but this isn't integrated to my Notifications so at the same time I keep getting prompted to close my PV.

    Please sort this quickly or it will be a good idea that goes sour.
