  2. Don't abandon Windows phone!

    This app is much better and more functional on the iPad than it is on my brand new Windows phone. That's just not right - support your most loyal customers first!

  3. Screenshot

    Implement in onedrive opportunity to reset the counter numbering of screenshots to be able to reset the counter to take a screenshot, or directly through the pre-installed applications in Windows 10 or through an account but that would be in both cases, the system windows 10 completely resets the counter to zero created screenshots

  4. Option to automatically upload screenshots

    Add an option to automatically upload screenshots (Power + Vol up) to OneDrive's screenshots folder[1].

    You could create a folder with my device's name inside the screenshots folder.

  9. Modify OneDrive Windows10 version logic

    I upload 700G photo to onedrive from my PC and dis-sync specific folder from Surface.
    but Surface will 'process syncing' when power on every time.
    is it coz process sync list every file ?
    We already choose don't sync specific folder which include 700g new photo , should don't effect program performance too much.
    if I am right , should move folder to 1st level check and break if match !
    please help , thanks.

  10. Ability to Suspend Uploads for a Period of Time to Assist with Poor Internet Speeds

    Here in Australia, we have horrible internet speeds. It would be great to be able to suspend uploads for an hour, a day or indefinitely because ADSL speeds just don't allow us to do many things at once.

  11. SYnc speed need to get improved. Doesn't make sense wait for days for syn 55GB

    I used to have Google drive, and because I bought a Surface Pro4 , I decide to keep all my files together in One Drive, but the syncing process is very slow. Gentlemen, I don't have to spend such time waiting for syncing. I am in the run every day and thing need to be where I need it.

  12. Some files are too big to upload

    I am using Windows 10 with the built-in Onedrive client, and I've just started encountering this warning:
    Some files are too big to upload
    Make sure files are 2.0 GB or less in size before you upload them.
    I have a paid Onedrive consumer account. I used to be able to upload files up to 10 GB in size. That was already too small, but 2 GB is unusable.

  16. Use symbolic links to syncronize folders

    To sync folders that are outside of OneDrive home folder should be nice to create a symbolic link/aliases for the desired folder.

    I used to upload all my camera photos to my One Drive Account for this reason, I need one extra password which was there in earlier version of One Drive app for Windows phone but after upgrading to Windows-10, this option is not there. Only It give the windows authentication password. Please add this extra feature in One Drive app for Windows-10 devices.
