  1. Backup and sync-between-machines are not the same thing!

    Office 365 materials describe OneDriveBackup as backing up your content. But that's not what it does, if you have multiple machines. Instead, it merges all of them into one synchronized set of folders, which is not at all the same thing.

    I want to back up my laptop, and I want to back up my desktop. That doesn't mean that I want to merge their content.

    Having a merged Desktop/Documents/et cetera is a great option, but let me keep the different machines separate if I want to.

  6. Pin OneDrive sync status

    Have an option to pin the sync status bar as a pop-out window. Currently I can only see the sync status by clicking the OneDrive icon but when I click another app or window the sync status disappears. When I'm managing a large number of file changes, I'd like to have the sync status available maybe as a docked window or pinned somehow so that it stays visible until I choose to close it.

  7. Personal vault, add option to keep open until computer is shutdown/rebooted

    When the vault closes down, it leaves open excel and word files in a non-saveable state (bug) even after i've reopened the vault. I have reported this as a bug seperately.

    Please ADD AN OPTION TO KEEP THE VAULT OPEN UNTIL THE COMPUTER IS POWER CYCLED (i.e. restarted/shutdown).

    All the warning I get that causes me to potential lose hours of work is an easily missed notification.

  8. Exclude a subfolder of My Documents from syncing to the cloud.

    I see there is an option to cherry-pick directories in OneDrive that will sync, but unselecting a subfolder leaves the directory on the cloud and deletes the local copy. I want to be able to do the opposite: Say I have a directory under My Documents that I don't want uploaded to the cloud, I want to be able to exclude it.

  10. delete duplicate files

    Don't let one drive duplicate photos over and over. Begging for someone to pay them for extra space. Don't hide the delete duplicates behind faq pages with solutions that never work. Eliminate one drive.

  12. OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online sync issues

    Background
    We have had several incorrect disconnections on OneDrive that are SYNCED to Project & Bid SharePoint Online (SPO) subsite document libraries. This has resulted in countless folders and files being deleted. Fortunately, they are going into the site Recycle Bin however this has led to a significant amount of work to restore these files. This causes disruption to the ongoing use of the site until resolved. We can have up to 200 users on a project unable access the deleted files until restored. This will impact significantly on our productivity.
    Users will initially SYNC a whole or part of…

  13. Fix Authentication Issues

    Create some updates that can fix an authentication issue within the suite. I have had an issue where OneDrive says I am not logged in, but my account is still somehow active.

  14. Setting to prevent Onedrive from deleting newly synced files when I want to delete them off my Onedrive sync folder on pc/laptop.

    Wouldn't it be great if there's an option to keep the files on Onedrive when I choose to delete them off my sync folder on my pc/laptop after finished uploading them ? This'd make the whole process of managing large amount of files/folders being uploaded by syncing them way easier and increase Sync feature's efficiency

  16. Be able to Move files from one folder to another without downloading

    When a file is moved from one folder to another within local one drive, the file seems to be reuploaded instead of being just moved at server (the behavior that offers the web interface)

    Also, if file was set to be stored at could only, if we move that file to another place, it's downloaded, then moved and reuploaded and it takes too long for big files or slow connections

  17. Erro de mesclagem após longo período de inatividade

    Olá, eu percebi que o OneDrive após um longo periodo de inatividade, ele duplica os arquivos criando uma extensão similar ao nome do computador.

    Digamos que se o seu computador é o nome TESTE-PC.
    Digamos agora que você tem um arquivo no OneDrive, esse arquivo se chama USERVOICE.txt.

    Agora se você fechar o OneDrive e passar muito tempo sem iniciar, ele não vai conseguir mesclar com a nuvem todos os arquivos.

    Então ele vai passar a criar uma cópia dos seus arquivos que estão no PC, então o arquivo passará a se chamar: USERVOICE TESTE-PC.txt. e vai te routro arquivo…

  19. Keep on this device

    There will be times i am pulling data from multiple Excel files, importing data into excel. I dont want to keep them in this device. but i do want to have them on the device all before i start the program to import them so it does the downloading all at once not one file at a time. so it goes faster on the processing

  20. Allow user control over what files/folder created locally get uploaded to OneDriv

    By default OneDrive seems to assume that anything created on the local hard drive is placed in the cloud automatically as its new primary location. We don't what this to happen and would prefer to manually copy or move files & folders to OneDrive from local storage via File Explorer. There should be an easy way for users to control this. We have lost a lot of data because of this confusion as to where a file is actually stored. We want the local system to be the primary file storage source and OneDrive seems to have this preference/assumption reversed.…
