  1. Duplicate/Mirror Folders

    Can you add an option where we can make any windows folder sync with OneDrive? Something like automatic backup. Where an existing windows folder will be always backed up to SkyDrive.

    I this feature enters OneDrive then it will be the top leading online drive services.

    Thank you,

  4. File syncing needs to be more transparent

    I don't want to sync every folder I have with OneDrive, since I'm using a small SSD for Windows. In 8.1 it was much easier to tell OneDrive "Make all my folders online-only". There needs to be this option in 10. By default when Win 110 loads, everything syncs over, unless you uncheck each box. Then you get an ugly icon with a giant red X. This is such a bad experience for SSD users with limited space

  5. Option for turn on/off transparent tile.

    Some of us want transparent tile, but some prefer blue tile, including me. There should be an option to turn transparent tile on/off.

  7. Integrate folder redirection... don't require users to "save-as"

    I've tried using OS folder redirection with the OneDrive sync folder, but it carries its own set of issues and don't think its manageable as-is.

    If the folder redirection was somehow integrated into the app as opposed to the OS, it may work a lot smoother.

    Ideally I'd like a way to allow users to save data to the local locations they are comfortable with but still sync that data to OneDrive. That would make our vision complete for decoupling the user's data from a particular machine. User gets new PC, all data syncs properly and user has all they…

  10. Add "Unshare" or "Remove link" for Windows 8.1 App version

    Using the OneDrive App for Windows 8.1, I can easily share my files and folders, but unlike the web version (OneDrive.live.com), I can't find the option to unshare or remove the link of my shared files and folders.

    Please add this feature.

  12. Allow HTML file editing on Windows Phone

    This is currently allowed on onedrive.com, don't see why it can't be done in Windows Phone

  13. Move hamburger button from the top left

    The Hamburger menu may be part of your new design approach, but it can certainly be improved. Consider locating it somewhere that is accessible if you are holding the phone with one hand (i.e. bottom). Thanks!

  14. I'd like the ability to change the thumbnail on videos that I have uploaded to OneDrive instead of OneDrive using a random image from the vi

    When viewing videos in Xbox video app on Windows 8 the thumbnail that is shown is a random thumbnail from the video and not the thumbnail that has been defined in the metadata.

  15. business and personal onedrive accounts on same pc

    I access files on my work Office 365 / onedrive account plus have my own onedrive account for personal files. I find that when I access the work one, I have to log in over and over again (with 2 step verification this is tedious).

    Is there a fix for this?

  16. Add download/upload queue

    Add a download/upload queue features. I am using OneDrive for Windows Phone. I usually have a lot of documents on the OneDrive... But I am usually mobile when I am working, thus having limit Internet connectivity.

    When I have the Internet connectivity, I would like to download my document one by one, which will be faster than download all at once.

    Please consider add this feature to Windows Phone and Windows version.

  19. add ability to print a doc or picture

    It should be easier to print from a Windows phone than it currently is, OneDrive or just office. Currently I share to my email and email the doc to my printer. I have a few printer apps and as far as I can tell sharing to the printer via email is currently the most convenient for me. This is Windows, there should be a better solution.
