  4. Create prioritization for files/folders.

    Allow for users to set a prioritization of particular folders so to allow them to sync before everything else. Would be invaluable when using another device to have the files you set as high priority to download/upload before everything else.

  5. Add a setting that allows users to turn off the dialog box/prompt when you exit the OneDrive client in Windows 7

    I manually start/exit OneDrive as needed on my Windows 7 computers and so I would like your team to add a setting in the client that would allow users to turn off the message that appears when you exit the client. See the attached file for a copy of the message that Windows 7 users see when they exit OneDrive. By default, the client can have this warning message enabled and users can uncheck/disable it as they see fit.

    By the default, the client can ship with the setting enabled and users can disable the warning if See the attached…

  6. Please do not reset folders selected for synchronization after each update of OneDrive

    I suddenly recognized that there was a silent update of OneDrive. As a result, OneDrive forgot all folders selected for synchronization and started to synchronize the whole content from cloud to my PC. I did not expect to get everything but only I selected for synchronization.

    Please do your best to remember folders selected for synchronization and do not reset the list after each update of OneDrive

  9. To enable folders from different hard drives.

    If you have more than one hard drive in your system. I'd like to option to add that folder to the sync process instead of coping it over to the OneDrive folder. That way, every added file to that folder on separate hard drive will be synced.

  11. Have OneDrive in Windows 10 work the way it does in WIndows 8.1!

    OneDrive as it exists in the Tech Preview of Windows 10 is a dramatic step backwards in terms of usability. No longer can I choose where OneDrive is located - in Windows 8.1, I can set OneDrive to be on an external drive, freeing up local hard drive space and allowing me to have more folders available offline. Now I am limited to my laptop's small hard drive, meaning I can only sync very little from my OneDrive.

    I also cannot understand why the ability to see all of OneDrive in File Explorer is gone. It is currently so easy…

  13. Change Folder Name

    I would like to be able to change the name of the OneDrive folder, so it isn't forced to be "OneDrive".

  18. Please fix sync issues on Windows 8.1

    The OneDrive sync is very slow and not reliable on Winows 8.1. Sometimes it's going to "Checking for changes" and stuck in that position about 3-4 hours. Please fix it.

  20. bring the hamburger menu down!

    i use a nokia 1320 which is a giant phone. i think for phones of this size the UI should be modified a bit for one hand use. The most important change that microsft has to make here is the hamburger menu which is way on top and not at all convinient. i would suggest that for all windows 10 apps please bring down the hamburger menu.
