  6. To be able to backup additional folders apart from Document, Pictures and Videos.

    Using OneDrive is a convenient backup for files on my Windows PC. However, M-Soft only allows 3 folders to be chosen - why not add the ability to do more folders (e.g. Videos and Music) without having to move those into one of the 3 current choices?

  7. Few Suggestions to make this app more usable & user friendly


    1. Show sync speed (ul/dl) for every individual file as it shows in any download manager app


    2. Add option to pause and resume every individual file for UL/DL to take the full control to prioritize while Ul/Dl a bulk amount of data synching


    3. One direct click button for Pause, & quiet, restart & settings in the lower portion of the OD client app


    4. Make the 64bit newly launched OD client more performance-oriented to take the full advantages & utilization of all the modern & greater HW resources (i.e. CPU & More RAM) to get the job (file sync) done more quickly…

  10. Let us exclude certain folder from syncing to OneDrive.

    Example:
    I tell OneDrive to sync my Documents folder. However, within my Documents are some large folder for say Games which take up a lot of space. It would be nice to allow us to select folder to exclude from syncing to OneDrive.

  12. We should be allowed to exclude certain folders from uploading.

    I like to keep my development source code on One drive so that they are backed up in real time.
    But when i build it creates a lot of cache & target which also get synced & I really want to exclude that.

    There should be a feature to choose folders whose contents should only stay on the PC & not sync to the cloud.

  13. Exclude folders from synching, and not by copying it elsewhere.

    In the era before Onedrive, our local Document folder was our own.

    Now. Onedrive forces us to sync it, even if we didn't specifically said to.

    I now have a game that puts its savegame in the document folder, and it's not the only game to do so. Save games takes spaces. And they are already synched to the game's cloud. I don't want them in onedrive.

    Please allow us to exclude folders we don't want to sync, and please give us a choice when unsynching, as deleting local files is not always a good idea.

  15. The Sync process should check before wiping files (it wiped 2 years of data)

    My experience of your product is as follows. When I first purchased my PC 2 years ago, it came with One Drive out of the box and when I copied my data across to My Documents it started syncing them to One Drive. At that point I didn't want that to happen so I stopped the process. I didn't realise that approximiately 10 folders from My Documents had already synced to One Drive. 2 years later I purchase a subscription to office 365 and decided that I would make use of the 1TB storage that comes with the subscription. When…

  16. make unlinking OneDrive and pc more obvious in case the white cloud in the taskbar is gone.

    unlinking OneDrive from the PC for those who wish to do so should be made easier than the while clod in case that cloud is removed.
    Is there another way for the average user to do so without that cloud?

  17. To block download option for media files

    We want to be able to prevent external recipients of our sharepoint links from being able to download, and the file type is media. We want to be able to share files such as Teams video recordings with these external recipients but with only the permissions to view and access. However, we do not want them to be able to edit, change, delete, or download the media files.

  18. One Drive Space place

    Hi, i think 5GB for non premium user is to less. a company like microsoft should offer much more. As a long-time and a active user, this is what I wish for.

  19. Signing in for the first time on a new device - syncs everything in the cloud to your devices is painful

    The default to sync all folders saved in the cloud to the device is painful as most user only want specific folders mirrored to their device and the rest stored in the cloud for random access.

    The default is all folders are selected in the cloud to download and then to stop this from happening and selecting specific folders caused conflicts - sync issues.

    The default should be NO folders and the user then selects which folders they want. If it is all it is the one tick but his is generally not the case..

    This causes bandwidth issues for…

  20. Additional file-on-demand option in the settings

    Please add also "save as file-on-demand" in the settings together with "free up space" and "always keep on this device" as a third option.
