  4. The changes made to OneDrive integration in Windows 10 are horrible.

    This has really damaged my ability to use OneDrive. I now can only access my files through the terrible website, or I have to download and store numerous Gigabytes of data on my Surface that I did not have to store locally before. This is really, really bad, and may make me stop using OneDrive altogether in favor of some other cloud service. Not only is the File Explorer integration gone, the "Metro" app is gone too.

    I can't believe this was done, and I see from searching that it has been a subject of user outcry since Beta. Seriously,…

  6. formatting

    Allow for basic formatting in the Windows Phone app such as bullet points and numbered lists. The OneNote app has this, why can't other Office 365 apps like Word, etc.

  12. PC Upgrade / Re-Imaging Migration Path without Re-Syncing

    Whenever you reinstall OneDrive, re-image your PC or get a new one, OneDrive has to re-sync from scratch, even if I preserve my OneDrive folder. As OneDrive has grown in size (aka I have 600gb of files in OneDrive) it has become very painful to "re-download" everything every time I make a change.

    This is very inefficient. I should be able to point OneDrive at my old OneDrive folder at setup and it should be able to re-index the files on my PC and reconcile them with the Cloud versions without having to re-download them all from scratch. The current…

  14. Onedrive integration into file explorer

    Please integrate onedrive options into file explorer when I'm in onedrive folder. I can create links, shorten links, view permission etc. all within file explorer. You guys are idiots to remove onedrive metro app. It should be the universal app (it's on windows phone 10, android, etc. why it's not windows 10?

  15. Issue when by error you start to sync the OneDrive to your computer and it can't be stopped until fully sync

    Issue when we start to sync the OneDrive to your computer and it can't be stopped until fully synced. Once the process is started OneDrive doesn't allow changes to folders selected to sync.

  16. Detailed description of the Windows Phone backup

    Hi,

    It would be great to see how much space each app occupies in the Windows Phone backup. This might be beneficial for two reasons:


    1. The size of the backup copy can be disproportionately large. Say, according to Storage Sense, the apps on the phone occupy around 3 GB while the reserve copy occupies nearly 1 GB. People have the right to know where their traffic and OneDrive space go.


    2. It might be good to know which apps and games do backup their data and which ones don't, so that you could know what to expect when you reset your…

  19. Online Only save option for OneDrive

    OneDrive folder in File Explorer saves files to my hard drive. In windows 8.1 there was an option to have files and folders save Online Only. In OneDrive options under "Choose Folder" I can select which folders I'd like to be able to access my OneDrive folder from file explorer and have my files as "Online Only" so I can save space on my hard drive.

  20. Choose "Sort By" default in OneDrive

    Being able to change the default option for sorting folders by name, date, etc. yourself. Currently I have to go to each folder and choose how I want to sort the contents but would like to set a default (for example name ascending) and it will always show files within each folder in the same way
