  6. A little more flexibility in copying files, ("comparing files"), as in copying Windows File Explorer

    Until now I used Google Drive for backup, now I have moved to One Drive
    I used Microsoft 'mover' tool to transfer the backup of 'pictures' 'documents' and 'desktop' from Google Drive to One Drive
    Now that I have turned on One Drive sync and backup, One Drive recognizes that these are the exact same files, but does not allow you to overwrite the files that are in the cloud or alternatively choose to leave the existing copy in the cloud
    It only allows you to create a copy of all the files
    And as you know, duplicating files in…

  8. Prevent user to “Free Up Space“ before the sync is done

    It’d be great if OneDrive could stop me from freeing up space before the sync is done. I lost several files cause by this situation.

  11. ALLOW UNSELECTING AND BACKUP

    Could you allow OneDrive to start the backup without Desktop or Pictures selected as the software is now trying to backup 5Tb of pictures that I do not want on OneDrive

  12. Files On-Demand in reverse

    You already have files On-Deman, when files are downloaded when required, but what if I have a need for reverse? I want to keep majority of files on my PC, but there are some folders, that I would like to "offload" because I use them extremely rarely. I can, of course, turn on On-Demand and then mark everything except those files/folders as "Always download", but that's too much of a hassle and I will need to keep an eye on new files and folders, so that they also have "Always download" flag on them. Please, add an option to "offload"…

  15. MUST be able to remove sync from a file.

    I have a file that I no longer want synced to Onedrive. I want to use it on my laptop ONLY! But now that I have it up there, there is no way to stop it syncing. Every time I edit and save the file, it syncs. I DON'T WANT IT ON ONEDRIVE AT ALL. This is THE BIGGEST reason I do not use Onedrive, except to experiment with. (Non-Business account)

  18. Selectable files on demand per account/library for OneDrive and SharePoint libraries

    Our organization uses OneDrive and Sharepoint library synchronization. However Files on Demand is either on or off for both. Would be great to be able to setup OneDrive folder to not use Files on Demand so files in a users' OneDrive could all be accessible without an Internet connection, while being able to select any SharePoint libraries configured to Use Files On Demand so large SharePoint libraries don't take up hard drive space.

  19. Don't update the app while syncing.

    I noticed that the app updates shortly after start-up, while in the middle of synchronizing files. Although this is not really a problem - and with an SSD it will quickly resume - it would make sense to either update the app immediately (before synchronizing files) or finish the files first.

  20. OneDrive create a running log file of actions performed.

    I'd like to see OneDrive create a running log file of actions performed on files. Uploaded, downloaded, deleted, renamed, etc.. Currently, there is no recorded way to know what was done.
