  1. I have been using imcchris@hotmail.com since the Hotmail time, I have never had this wrong sign up the problem until these couple weeks. Eve

    I have been using imcchris@hotmail.com since the Hotmail time, I have never had this wrong sign up the problem until these couple weeks. Every time after I reset another password, and use this new password to sign in again, the reply must state that my password was wrong, and then I reset again for another password, the same thing happens again and again.
    I am not trying to fool anybody; I just don’t know why? I hope that you can investigate it for me. Honest to you, I don’t like Office 365. Because I don’t want to go back to…

  4. Duplicar archivos

    Me gustaria que mis archivos de OneDrive no se dupique si los uso en diferentes equipos en diferentes tiempo o momento, quiciera que actualizara el mismo archivo en ambos equipos, no que me cree uno por cada equipo donde lo he usado. No entiendo la finalidad eso es válido cuando el mismo archivo lo abren al mismo tiempo en diferentes equipos. Es un atraso está buscando cuál es la versión que se actualizo si hay dos archivo, cuando debería de haber solo uno.

  6. "Manage Backup" and the way it moves the Desktop and Documents folders is incredibly confusing and scary, and is poorly documented.

    You badly need to fix how "manage backup" works, especially since the default behavior changed in newer installations of Windows 10.

    I used OneDrive on older computers running Windows 10, manage backup was disabled, and OneDrive worked more or less intuitively.

    I just bought a new PC, and manage backups was enabled. I didn't realize the significance of this. The fact that my Desktop and Documents folders changed locations was extremely unintuitive.

    Also, the relationship between the "choose folders" and "manage backup" settings was confusing.

    Worst of all, when I disabled Manage Backups, I believe my visible desktop suddenly became…

  8. No way to stop backing up pictures

    I don't want to back up pictures via OneDrive but I want to continue backing up documents and desktop.

    I right-click on OneDrive, click on settings, go to the backup tab, click on Manage Backup, UNCLICK the checkmark on pictures (there is no checkmark, only a "Stop Backup" link for Desktop and Documents; there is no link "Stop Backup" for Pictures but only the checkmark which starts checked)... and then what? The message says that unselected folders won't be backed up but THERE IS NO WAY TO SAVE THE SETTING. If I click on the X in the upper-right corner…

  9. Sync behaviour of removing folders

    When enabled retention policy, in SharePoint itself you cannot remove folders with content. However when using OneDrive Sync, you can remove libraries and they are put in the retention preservation folder. This is terrible for shared folders/libraries.

  11. one drive must reach a limit to saving file with same name, gives error and requires new filename

    unlimited synching of filename reaches limit and requires a new file name to use if file is left open for hours/overnight

  12. Sync a shared folder from a Work or School account to a Personal account

    Anyone outside of the organization should be able to sync a shared folder with their personal account. We work with contractors and consultants daily that should not be required to sign up for a Work account or we should not have to add a guest account that they have to set up separately from their personal account. It is too complicated. Just allow shares to sync for any type of account.

  14. Onedrive Files on Demand Server 2019 Storage Sense GPO

    Unfortunately you cannot use the Windows 10 1903 GPO ADMX Storage Sense GPO with server 2019.
    We need the Storage Sense GPO on Server 2019 for a RDS/VDI environment.
    The storage sense feature is there on server 2019 but we cannot centrally manage it.

  16. Have a Property called 'Can not be Synched' of a OneDrive Folder, this will mean when you select 'Choose Folders' the folder will not appear

    Have a Property called 'Can not be Synched' on a OneDrive Folder, this is the online folder not the desktop folde,r. Have this set to true will mean this will mean when you select 'Choose Folders' the folder will not appear in the list of folders. If the folder property is changed after it is already syching then an error in the Desktop app appears with something like 'This Folder is no longer Sycnhing because the online folder property has been set 'do not synch' either change the Property to resume sycnhing or move the items from this folder somewhere…

  17. Have a pc version of ONEDRIVE as well as Android or IOS.

    With the IOS / Android version of Onedrive it is possible to annotate PDF documents directly from ONEDRIVE. It is possible to zoom or move a PDF document easily which is not the case with ONEDRIVE PC.

  20. Don't sync certain file extensions

    We have just started using OneDrive for backups as part of our Office 365 subscription. One issue that we've had is with automatically generated files (such as those created when compiling code with Visual Studio... obj, exp, pch, and many more). There can be 1000s of these files in our OneDrive folders and they change each time we do a build. We don't care about the files being backed up and would rather they were excluded. We managed to do this by blocking them through the Office 365 admin pages, but it results in a red cross and 1000s of…
