  1. Autosave encrypted files and files in Personal Vault

    Enable autosave of encrypted files and files in Personal Vault. This would improve workflows of secure files.

  2. Why don't you make Automatically Save Screenshots available in OneDrive Business?

    Why don't you make Automatically Save Screenshots available in OneDrive Business? It will be easy for those who want to use it, just check it. For those who do not want to use it, uncheck it. Right now, we hove to open a file in word, excel, powerpoint, etc and paste it. You would save us a ton of steps and time.
    Thank you

  4. Files Stored Online should save a pic of each document on the computer drive for preview

    Accessing previews of files saved online in one drive and not on the PC is very time consuming ... why can't the file be stored online to save disk space but a preview of the first page of the file be located locally so that the delay in previewing or mistaken opening of the file when trying to preview as it pulls down from the cloud does not occur and the user is able to quickly preview a sample of the file without access to the cloud... ???

  5. OneDrive sucks

    I hate this program its so obnoxious. Fills up with things I don't want it to and then antagonizes me with these red x's and error notifications when it fills up the measly 5Gb. Im not spending more money to get rid of something I didn't ask for

  6. delete shared libraries from listing

    If a user's rights are revoked or the Sharepoint site is deleted, remove the Sharepoint name from their OneDrive > Shared Libraries list. Currently, once a user has rights to a Sharepoint site, that name is added to the list and never removed - even if the user's rights are removed or the site is deleted. And, you can't manually remove it. (3rd level Microsoft tech verified this).

    I have a number of business customers who are using O365 instead of a server and are complaining because old sites are still appearing on their employees OneDrive sites which are causing…

  7. About the problem of synchronous version storage

    I'm using OneDrive's synchronization function, but every time I save a file (when I'm writing a document), it saves a version of it in the cloud. This has caused my cloud to take up too much storage space. I only want to save 2~3 versions in the cloud. Is it possible?

  9. Disable synchronization for specific items

    It would be great if there was a way to exclude specific files from synchronization, just like how you right click and there is an option to "Always keep on this device".

  10. this app is driving me mad!

    I'd like to turn off automatic uploading and actually choose what I want to save, as I'm deleting stuff to make space the page keeps jumping and refreshing as its adding more stuff that I didn't want to save. very frustrating. should be simple!

  11. share link quickly with right click

    Right click on file > copy OneDrive link
    (a quick option without having to go to the share window that pops up, and with a default to "view only" not "can edit")

  13. Hello! I think that it would be better if onedrive locked any file that is currently in use rather than creating a second one. I lose files

    Hello! I think that it would be better if onedrive locked any file that is currently in use rather than creating a second one. I lose files because of this although my files are relatively small in size,
    thanks!

  17. Make OneDrive UI into a window

    OneDrive UI is okay, but it doesn't have a dedicated window/form. I personally would like to be able to keep my OneDrive GUI screen to open/visible when I want to do multiple actions. It doesn't even have to be much, just a pin icon that makes it act like any other application.

  18. Don't move files to OneDrive directory

    Context:
    When you adopt OneDrive, it moves your Desktop/Documents/etc folders from C:\Users\<username>\ to C:\Users\<username>\OneDrive - <groupname>. Which messes up symlinks, (poorly programmed) software, and user training. While some aspects of this can be mitigated by the deployer by providing a long lead time; this runs contrary to the idea that "easy to use" and amount of training that's needed for people to have to adopt.

    Current workaround:
    You can hardlink a directory from your existing directories to the OneDrive directory. This has the effect of having the same folder in two places. The drawback is that OneDrive seems to…

  19. Maintain file creation and modification dates when uploading files to OneDrive for Business

    When files are uploaded to OneDrive for Business the file creation and modification dates are changed to the time of the upload. If you do a batch upload there is no way to sort the files by date or time. It would be extremely helpful if you had the option of maintaining these file designations when uploading or syncing to OneDrive.
