  1. Pricing and Sharing

    Recently, I had to purchase extra storage on Google Drive. I would have liked to use Onedrive, but there was no adequate sharing options. With Google Drive, I can share a folder and the person I share it with can actually download the folder onto their computer. With OneDrive they must access the folder via web. That's very restrictive, especially with photos. Also, Google Drive offers 100 gb of storage for $1.99, while OneDrive only offers 50.

  2. This is a trouble program, I suggest any program should be open if I I needed.

    Programs should be open by the need of the user. Having programs, open all the time, and the user is closing and spending time on this is no sense.

  3. Not "Up to date"

    OneDrive says "Up to date" when it is not (i.e. when I have moved files/folders on a second synced laptop). Is my only option to exit and restart? Why isn't there one button to do this (exit & restart) instead of me having to right click, exit; Are you sure? yes; go to windows, all programs, one drive; additional popup. Ugh.

    Even though this only happens infrequently, it seems like such a simple fix.

  4. give me the ability to disable screen capture on OneDrive

    I prefer using Greenshot as my screen capture program as it allows me more flexibility on what I want to do with my screen captures. As of now, whenever I launch Greenshot, Windows tells me another program already has the "Shift + Prtsc" key, since OneDrive automatically launches on startup.

    Appreciate your consideration of my idea.

  7. Windows 10 mobile: Option to backup photos only while charging

    On Android in the settings in Google photos, there is an option to only backup photos when the device is charging (additional to the option to only backup over wifi).

    I would love to have this option in the OneDrive app on WINDOWS 10 MOBILE, because I don't want to waste battery life backing up photos.

  9. clearly indicate difference between one drive and one drive for business

    This got better for a while, I have OneDrive personal with a MS account and OneDrive for business with an Office365 account.
    When one of my passwords get lost or changes (power fail this morning) I get an anonymous prompt and I have no idea which OneDrive I am putting he password for.

  12. add sync exception for folders

    add sync exception for folders so some subfolders of a synced folder will not be synced to the cloud. for example I need to sync the 'my documents' folder, but qq and wechat forcefully store their programd data in this folder so as long as I have these I'm apps open I have to always sync tons of useless data.

  15. Have OneDrive stay collapsed.

    As it stands now when one opens File Explorer in Windows 10, the new ODB client expands down so if you have dozens of folders in your ODB sync folder you can only see ODB and no other folders or resources on the PC. I click arrow to collapse it but the very next time I open File Explorer it's expanded out again. It's quite arrogant for MS to assume we want to work nowhere bu tin ODB folders.

  16. Allow upload throttling

    Ever since the default option of batch uploading to "increase speed" was introduced, myself along with thousands of other users have suffered with OneDrive bringing home internet services to a stop.
    This was easily resolved by unticking the box for batch uploads
    Since the newer builds have been released, this is now no longer an option and every time I wish to upload data, my internet stops

    Please fix this as it is completely unacceptable. Dropbox and Google drive don't cause issues like this!

  20. Why keep limiting the file size?

    Many users have to keep disks images which are larger than that. Neighter my VM with ridiculous 10GB are possible to sync. Why do that? This could be a limitation for free account users, but not paid accounts.
