  2. Shortcut

    It’s a bit of a hassle to open the Explorer and open the Onedrive folder every day. Can you set a shortcut, such as the F12 button, to open it if needed?

  3. its too early to comment on this cloud storage, may be i need to familiarize myself with cloud and then explore this option,

    it should work fast (sync) and more importantly support team should use Microsoft team application in order to help the users, not just via phone which i firmly believe doesnt help the user to fix the issue over phone conversation. If support team DOESNT use "Microsoft team" whats the point to develop this application

    削除済みユーザーの OneDrive for Business のデータを取り出すためにユーザーを復元すると、当該ユーザーのメールボックスも同時に復元が行われてしまう。

    If a deleted user gets recovered due to the need to retrieve that users’ OneDrive for Business data, the users’ mailbox will get recovered as well. Thus I hope for a feature that allows for just the recovery of OneDrive for Business.

  5. make timeout adjustable or make it so timeout doesn't occur during file transfers

    make timeout adjustable or make it so timeout works with file or data transfer so it doesn't time out in the middle of moving a large file or many files

  8. Stop asking for phone verification. Not all people have or want phones. Or they don't want you to know their number.

  9. Bring back sync to local laptop ! (please !!)

    OneDrive has changed to put all files in the cloud. Sync is gone. The user can download a file to a laptop to work offline, but then would need to upload it again to keep OneDrive updated. Opening a file, Excel for ex, uses the web/online version of Excel. The online version is not as robust as the Office365 desktop version. M$ assumes I will always have internet access - not true!

  11. Sync Issues on Windows 10 for One drive

    One drive should automatically sync new contents or items on Windows 10 in One drive folder created on desktop or laptop. As of now, we need to rename folders, sync and then rename it.Multiple times have to go online to One drive and sync and rename it.

  14. Automate the "Free Up Space" feature

    After clicking on several files/folders during the week, add a feature to automatically apply the "FREE UP SPACE" feature on all local files and folders.
    [Maybe a checkbox to select this option when OneDrive is closed]

    This would be good for designers who have SSDs and need all the HD Space.

  15. 使用OneDrive同步共享库太占系统内存,个人版不会,比如修改一个doc文件的时候不要进行文件更新同步当前doc文件产生的隐藏缓存文件,文档修改关闭后再同步即可

  17. Love to sync One note on my pc with my android phone directly.

    Are One drive and One cloud the same thing? I just (have to) use One drive/cloud to sync OneNote from pc to Android phone. Would love to do this directly without an extra cloud memory location if that's what's happening.

  18. Coffre fort Onedrive synchronisable sur certaines machines choisies seulement

    il est inadmissible que le coffre fort descende par défaut sur une machine. le choix des dossiers à synchroniser doit être effectué avant toute installation et à la demande uniquement après une authentification forte systématique, sinon votre coffre fort ne sert à rien !!!

  19. Personal Vault results in Search

    Personal Vault files do not show up in search results. I couldn't remember where I stored a file, looked everywhere, and then finally remember it MIGHT have been in the Personal Vault. Opened the vault manually and found it there. Frustrating! The very existence of these files isn't a security concern, just their contents.
