  1. Their should be a feature designed as an add-on to the OneDrive log-in that monitors what users are logged-in/off.Users ID can be seen.

    I believe in coding structure of Windows 10 product can be enhanced for the customer of Home and Business OneDrive. Right now you do not know who is taking advantage of your sharing. Quite Access only let you know what was taken not who took it and when. Well, OneDrive has a blind side too and some people know this. If you add a feature embeded in the coding of OneDrive with a feature designed to reveal to the customer (User) who is in OneDrive that is online list a flip out list to a drop down menu on OneDrive…

  2. Ignore Error - File too Large

    If a file is too large to upload and you get an error, you should be able to "acknowledge" and then ignore error so that it doesn't task bar icon does not show it has not synced... i.e., it is in a correct state even though that file cant sync due to its size which as the user we have affirmatively acknowledged.

  3. List of the files to synchronise

    Add a list of the files not already synchronise (sometimes there is files not synchronised or take a long time to synchronise - it should be intersting to have a list)

  4. Update the OneDrive for Business Client Network Bandwidth Calculator based on how the Next Generation Sync client works

    The OneDrive for Business Client Network Bandwidth Calculator developed by Zach Rosenfield was a great tool for anticipating bandwidth requirements on each site.
    Could you update it to include improvements from the Next Generation Sync Client?

  7. More Robust Synching

    OneDrive's synching functionality is such that synching only happens when content is changed in the OneDrive "drive," not when content is changed in a local drive. For example, when content is changed in the OneDrive "drive," this change is synched with the local drive the next time the computer restarts. However, the converse is not true, i.e., when content is changed in a local drive, this change is not synched with the OneDrive "drive," the next time the computer restarts. I would appreciate it if the latter part of the foregoing synching functionality is implemented in OneDrive.

  8. windows explorer search

    Windows explorer search is unusable and scary

    In the year 2016 - after being Windows user since Windows 95, I am still unable to understand how Search actually works on windows. Before you could actually know if it is searching content or names, or both, nowdays, you have no clue whatsoever, and it never finds anything that it is actually there.

    It never behaves as expected and I am actually avoiding its use at all costs(that is why I say it is scary)

    Because I am a developer I currently use this amazing free tool that behaves so much better,…

  10. velocidad de descarga

    Almacené un archivo.iso de 951Mb en mi OneDrive, dicho iso lo descargué anteriormente del servidor Mega, ahora que lo necesitaba intenté descargarlo desde mi OneDrive, la velocidad de descarga disminuía considerablemente oscilando entre 100Kb a 250Kb, y sin concluir la descarga en dos ocasiones me marcó error de red, sin opción de dar continuidad a el avance de la descarga, teniendo que reiniciar nuevamente, dicha situación en me obligó a recurrir a el link que anteriormente me habían proporcionado de Mega, afortunadamente todavía se encontraba activo, y como referencia les comento la descarga desde el servidor Mega se mantiene constante…

  14. Sync customized folder such as game data and app settings.

    Allow syncing single folders. Sometimes we need to sync our software settings or the game data, but they are not stored in the OneDrive folder. Hope OneDrive can allow syncing among other single folders other than the OneDrive folder.

  18. do not assume everyone wants Skype. Please stop auto-loading/preloading it. Make it optional for people to choose if they want it or not.

    I do not want a Skype account at all. And the fact that I'm forced to have a Skype account is infuriating. Since all Windows products have Skype autoload with it, I'm stuck with a useless program/app (that is now pretty much mandatory) that has no function other then taking up space because there's no way (that I know of) to uninstall or remove it.

  19. let me keep my 15gb! Today was the first I've heard about this and I'm most definitely ******. I will leave all MS services if this changes.

    I just found out about this today and I have been a loyal user since the service began. I am really ****** off and you will absolutely lose me if this changes.
