  1. At least offer to skip if path is too long.

    Moving a folder from dropbox to onedrive that contains a bunch of pluralsight(development examples) has turned into a nightmare

  2. Sync the Cloud Recycle Bin with my Windows Recycle Bin for file recovery

    I lost some files because my files were deleted into the Cloud Recycle Bin. But after having found these files (searching for hours) I couldn't recover them because of errors.
    That gave me the idea that deleted files from the Onedrive folders should be visible in the Windows recycle bin, somehow, because deleting files from the onedrive folder on Windows does not put these files into the Windows Recycle bin.
    But why not?

  3. want Sync icon back in OneDrive after Dropbox installed!

    When installing Dropbox, OneDrive "looses" the sync icons.
    There is a massive trail (aka many users face this) on answers.ms.com, but the solution of support is to uninstall Dropbox.
    As this is a forum where (hopefully) MS developers also read, may be this helps? As not knowing what is synced and what not is annoying...
    Guess you folks can do better than Dropbox;-)

  4. Bug: OneDrive for Business scrollbar not visible when Help panel is open

    The default view for a first time login has the Help panel displayed, which masks the scroll bar. Not a good first time user experience

  5. Option to synchronize screenshots on Windows Mobile (Phone) 10

    This option exists on desktop, please add it to mobile. It would be especially helpful for writing documentation / email / etc. on the pc about apps and other experiences on the phone.

  9. Please, please provide someway of pausing or slowing down the OneDrive sync. It's completely clogging our broadband.

  17. Return Windows 10 File Explorer OneDrive to Windows 8.1 Functionality

    Users really need to be able to see all folders and files on their OneDrive using File Explorer in Windows 10, not just those that are resident on the users' hard drives. Please, Microsoft, give us back the Windows 8 functionality of File Explorer access to all OneDrive files.

  20. Text in "files can't be synced with OneDrive" dialog is clipped

    I started getting a "2 files can't be synced with OneDrive" dialog several builds back, which is a regression. Now, the dialog itself has regressed, and the text "2 files can't be synced with OneDrive" is now clipped. The bottom half of the characters in that line are missing. Other text in the dialog is correct. I have a screenshot, attached.

    My screen is set to 100% scaling, and repros on both monitors (built-in LCD and external monitor over VGA cable) on my laptop.
