  1. In your "View Sync Problems" panel, provide an "Open Containing Folder" option, or allow the file path to be copied.

    I get a list of files with sync problems. I want to be able to open the containing folder from the Sync Problem dialog window.

  2. make it possible to select 'Keep Server Version' for large groups of 'Sync Issue' files

    When I ran out of room on my hard drive and changed the folders to be synced with One Drive, I somehow ended up with '537 files that can't be synced with OneDrive'. And the "Resolution" is to "Open document in Office for more info." Sometimes when I the files just have to be resaved. But 2/3 can't be, and no options or instructions are forthcoming. So all I can do is close them and try again later. What a mess. This will take months to resolve at this rate...

  5. add a manual sync button that syncs immediately.

    This is needed so urgent. OneDrive just needs FAR to long to sync files. Waiting for an hour sometimes just to get couple of files uploaded. I want the OneDrive synced at once sometimes (everytime I shup my computer down actually!). I have a fiber connection - why do I have to wait? This is really a game breaker for me.

  7. "Windows security" window prompting for my user/password!?

    Sometimes I get a "Windows security" window prompting for my user/password...
    I Don't know what app that want's it or what account (private or bussines) so for security concerns I just X it out for security concerns. Looks like accont phising to me.

    Later I am surprised to see my OneDrive icons in the tray are grayed out, and I just can't find a way to log on again. Restart maybe.

    I understand that OneDrive is an itegrated part of Windows, but (for the love of God) I just logged in to my system with the same username and password. …

  13. OneDrive app for Windows 10

    OneDrive app for Windows 10 should be as functional as the desktop program. The app does not have a system icon or syncs as good as the program.

    Cannot take Screenshot when there is no Internet Connection. . Sometimes I wont be able to have Internet connection, so I hope Onedrive Software can still take Screenshots with or without Internet Connection.
