  1. Fix One Drive back to what it was before Windows 10

    Ever since upgrading from Win 7 to 10, every other day, and even sometimes more than once a day, I get told, while I am working on homework, essays and spreadsheets that "I don't have permission to save to this location" (One Drive). I am the only user, and of course the administrator.

    I usually end up saving my file to the desktop (if I'm lucky) and then I have to open One Drives folder and change the permissions to allow the home users full access (this changes back periodically) or I have to set the attributes of the files/folders…

  3. Online files should show up in OneDrive folder to save space on small drives but still be available quickly

    Online files should show up in OneDrive folder to save space on small drives but still be available quickly. In my case I have big Desktop with a couple of TB disc space put together. But my Zenoook only has a 120GB SSD. Right now, I have to let it take up space on my laptop because I can't see my files, if they aren't available off line. I know I can get them from the website, but that doesn't exactly improve productivity

  4. Massive improvements to sync required

    Two devices, sync seems to fail often, create conflicts regularly and simply not be fit for purpose. Any more than about 100 files hosted and the service is pretty much unusable.

  6. Fatal Windows 10 Problem - SD card disability

    I've upgraded to windows 10 from 8.1.

    I think the newer version is good. But the fatal thing is that OneDrive does not let SD card as the storing folder. In windows 8.1 environment, that won't be a problem, but newer one.. it's fatal to me since I'm using mini stick PC.

    I want an update to make it fixed!

  7. looking into the status icon

    Even though all files have been synced for weeks now, the icon indicating that it's still "processing changes" never goes away.

  10. Settable Delay time to Sync

    It is annoying when Onedrive tries to sync files as soon as they are downloaded from e-mails. Can we have few minutes of delay? Instant sync makes cursor move around and makes PC little slow.

  11. Bandwitdh Management for Upload/Download speeds

    To have upload and download speed management for OneDrive. Right now it uses all my upload speed (which is not a lot) and nobody else in the house can connect to the internet when I'm uploading something.

  16. Give up, you guys suck at this, enable uninstall for one drive, mine won't even work anymore, cant use the original folder or make a new 1

    Give up, you guys suck at this, enable uninstall for one drive, mine won't even work anymore, cant use the original folder or make a new one, can't delete the old one to start over. Google drive, dropbox has you beat, can't believe I can't delete folders on my own pc, I should go back to 7, I'd use ME if I thought you guys were getting more controlling over MY pc.

  17. Sincronización

    Debería permitir no sincronizar una carpeta de local, aunque aún no se haya subido a la red, en vez de obligar a esperar que haya una copia en la red. Puede que yo no quiera que esa carpeta suba a la red.

  18. Choose files as well as folders to sync offline

    It would be good to be able to sync specific files in a folder to sync offline and not just the entire folder. Have a "choose files" option added to the "Choose folders" tab. Do this and replace the "Files in xxxx" option.

  19. stop looking at files/folders online that i wont want to sync to my PC

    i sync my pictures folder only to my PC so why do i get a message about "shorten the filename of path of..." unrelated folder? it makes it makes ondrive useless from a PC perspective and only works via phone or the web site. the app may as well not exist for all the good it does. p.s bring back "sync online only" for gods sakes. i',m not renaming my folders in onedrive and my local PC and my laptop to work around this. i just have to upload via my phone or sync new stuff to a blank onedrive…

  20. Actually make the thing work in Windows 10!

    Broke Broke Broke. You have a permissions problem my friends. My windows account doesn't have access to my folders so one drive can't seem to copy any content into them. If I give my windows account "me@outlook.com" to the folder bam one drive can copy in. Otherwise, it cant and when the PC restarts one drive resets the permissions back.

    SUCK!

    Fix it.
