  2. Make one drive disabled by default on windows

    Many people buy a new computer with windows pre-installed and not have the slightest clue what onedrive is and would not choose to use it even if they did. It can be very confusing and difficult to explain to sometime how to manage their files in their documents folder when they are unknowingly using a cloud service they didn't ask for. It's a good way to lose your data when it's not backed up. It's confusing when you have plenty of hard disk space and one drive says you are out of space and need to give Microsoft money. All…

  3. Extremely slow download speed at 10kb/s when other software still working fine

    Our company in VietNam bought Microsoft 365 for all employees, but we got a lot of complaints about slow upload/download speed in One driver app. Please working on it to solve the problem, I saw these kinds of post some year ago and still meet this issue now in Jan 2021.
    Thank you for your effort.

  5. VERIFICACION en 2 (dos) PASOS...

    La VERIFICACION en 2 (dos) PASOS es un METODO IMPORTANTE junto a la UBICACION SATELITAL del SISTEMA OPERATIVO WINDOWS, por ejemplo, para SABER de manera permanente la UBICACION del DISPOSITIVO...
    El METODO me lo mostro la empresa GOOGLE cuando lleve el GABINETE-HARDWARE al TALLER para su REPARACION, ya que el TECNICO quiso VULNERAR mi CUENTA y el AVISO fue en MI CELULAR...
    Pudo haber sido QUERIENDO o SIN QUERER (distraído)...
    Cuando uno quiere abrir el ALMACEN en OneDrive el SOFTWARE solicita dicha VERIFICACION...
    Estaría BUENO que estos IDENTIFICARAN de manera COSTANTE la UBICACION del DISPOSITIVO...
    Cada vez que REINICIO el…

  6. OneDrive auf einen Windows Server automatisch Sichern

    Ich möchte gerne OneDrive auf einen Windows Server installieren ohne Domäne. so das die Dateien automatisch gesichert werden.
    Muss aber als Lokaler Benutzer auf OneDrive zugreifen können.
    OneDrive hat keinen Sinn wenn man seine Dateien nicht automatisch Sichern kann.

  9. Återinföra taggar på fotos

    Tidigare kunde man använda taggar på sina fotos och på detta sättet snabbt hitta en grupp igen. För ett par år sedan togs tyvärr detta bort, var mycket användbart. Vet inte varför det togs bort. När man går in och ser på OneDrives video kring hur man sorterar fotos pratar man fortfarande om taggar men funktionen finns inte längre??? När kommer den tillbaka?

  10. Importing intelligence.......

    I just connected my phone to my PC via USB cable and the options displayed for what to do with this device that included Import photos and videos using Photos or OneDrive. I chose OneDrive to see what would happen......... 2 hours later, the dialog changed to Importing photos and videos with a progress bar!

    My suggestion is to provide more detail about the import process. The old import in Photo Gallery included a dialog for grouping photos by time period via a slider as well as an Options link to modify where they would be imported to, etc. I…

  12. Exluding folders/syncing selected folders.

    It would very handy you can select some local folders and make them a Onedrive folder whitout moving them to the Onedrive library. I have a "mother"computer were everyting is saved and orginised and it would be really handy to enter certain folders from my chromebook.
    a sort of sulution is the back up function, but in my opinion this is way to massive. you can only select the complete documents folder were there are a lot of folders and documents that i don't want to put in my onedrive.
    also some software linked folders are locked and onedrive gives…

  13. Prevent more than one user accessing the same file simultaneously.

    Allow files to be locked for editing (as in an on-site server) when using folders synced to a PC. This is to prevent multiple copies of a file appearing.

  15. I should be able to pick and choose any folder that I want to sync

    I should be able to pick and choose any folder on any drive on my pc to sync with one drive.
    I should not be "forced to move" all my folders to "onedrive - xyz" in order to back them up.

  17. Silent Login With Duo MFA

    Please support the ability to use OneDrive silent login with Duo MFA. MFA is now a given in many organizations, and without silent login, it does not scale well and makes it more difficult to set up OneDrive for larger organizations.
