  2. Make it simpler to choose folders for OneDrive local files.

    I'm most often coming to the taskbar OneDrive button when I need to add or remove a folder from my local files (especially on my laptop). It would be easier for users (at least I assume there are others like me!) to do that if the "choose folders" option were more prominent and not buried in a subset of settings. May I suggest moving that up to its own button? (Or am I really the only one who has to go fish for it?) Thanks for considering.

  7. allow users to disable autosave

    Firstly, I would like to point out that people come here to make suggestions for changes to products usually out of sheer frustration. This is one of those things.

    I hate that files opened from OneDrive and SharePoint have Autosave enabled. All too often I have discovered this after mistakenly believing I was working in a not yet saved file, only to discover that the original that I opened has now been over written.

    I hate autosave. It does more harm than good. Please give users the ability to disable it for all files not just individually.

  8. Suggestion: user can choose the folders under "Documents" that can be uploaded to cloud.

    This suggestion comes after a problem involving Outlook 2016 and OneDrive. I use a business e-mail account on Outlook 2016 and, as I been told, OneDrive doesn't upload pst files (saved on the folder "Outlook Files" on the folder "Documents"). So, I tried to stop OneDrive from uploading this specif folder, but as I was told as well, it's not possible: the user cannot choose which folders go to the cloud.

    So, the suggestion is not only solve this problem involving pst files, but also let the user choose the folders them want to upload.

    Thank you very much.

  9. OneDrive exclude folder pattern

    We should be able to ignore certain folders with grok pattern or regex, for example /**/node_modules
    /**/.gradle/

  14. OneDrive Backups should include Start Menu, and user-Programs folders

    Products that install "per user" likely place their application into the user's Programs folder or Start Menu. The Desktop is being backed up by OneDrive, but not the actual item it refers to.

  15. Deleting a synced location folder from Windows Explorer should delete the sync, NOT the content

    With current functionality, if you navigate to a parent location sync folder in Windows Explorer (e.g. a Teams channel Files location you selected to sync), right-click and delete it, it deletes all of the content in the cloud location too. Deleting this folder should prompt the user if they want to remove the location from syncing, NOT delete all of the content.

  16. Ridiculous

    This is the most ridiculous, most sinister idea that you guys have come up with. I hate it, and I want to get rid of "files on demand" - i simply want my computer to store what I have, and not you, so that when I need it they are not there. And, to add insult to injury, I cannot post anything until I agree. Just brilliant.

  17. Select folders that need to be synchronized before installation

    Can users be allowed to select folders that need to be synchronized before installation instead of synchronizing all by default?
    Because I often need to install OneDrive, on different computers, it takes a lot of unnecessary time to synchronize all folders. At the same time, the folder being synchronized has no way to cancel the synchronization operation, which brings me a lot of trouble.

  18. OneDrive Sharing Between Personal and Business Accounts

    I have an active Microsoft 365 Family Annual Subscription, not a business subscription. I want to share my OneDrive folders with my CPA who has a Business OneDrive account. Microsoft does not support this sharing. A support people gave a weak explanation that Business OneDrive accounts cannot access personal OneDrive folders / files due to the higher security require of the business accounts. How is sharing my personal OneDrive Folders / Files with my CPA who has a business OneDrive account riskier than sharing with a personal OneDrive account?

    My work around for now is to create a shared link…

    Ao realizar login para acesso ao one drive da empresa, inseri o e-mail pessoal por engano no acesso pelo meu notebook pessoal . Ao tentar mudar o e-mail, não há opção de mudança do e-mail. A sugestão e que se crie esta opão.

  20. Cancel syncing files while paused.

    I should be able to decide what files are synced to onedrive from my pc while syncing is paused. I do not want to have to wait 30 minutes and sync 2gb of files at 1mb/s just to tell onedrive not to sync those files anymore right after.
