  2. Fix creating new folder

    Fix the fact that when you create a new directory on a pc ... getting a "new folder" it's practically impossible to rename it. One drive starts immediately syncing and whatever you type gets replaced, refreshed, select all happens... in any case impossible to use. The only way around is to create a folder on the pc locally, then rename it, and then only put it on onedrive.

  5. You should try again by completely rebuilding from scratch. OneDrive behaves like ransomware on my computer.

    Make a functional storage solution that doesn't hold files ******* or behave in odd and unpredictable ways when one has multiple microsoft accounts.

  6. Don't corrupt the filesystem during normal operation

    We use OneDrive on about 100 computers. It is constantly having problems with not syncing files which almost always turn out to be filesystem errors. A chkdsk /f and a reboot later they are gone and everything works again. It can't be a good sign that we have implemented file system checks in our regularly scheduled maintenance.

    Please consider fixing the bug that causes this issue.

    The error message in question is "Data in the reparse point buffer is invalid"
    chkdsk will report problems

    The chkdsk problems include lines similar to this:
    Deleting corrupt attribute record (C0, "") from file…

  8. Prevent .ink files from being synced

    I have my desktop mapped to a one drive folder. However I end up with a copy of each shortcut for every program installed on every device....

    So I get on computer A and it has the shortcuts for computer B as well as the ones for computer A. as the same programs are installed on both it ends up with duplicate shortcuts.

  9. Dictionary

    If it isn't already possible, I think the option to download different dictionaries (ie. Greek/Norse Mythology), would be swell.

  10. Automatic shutdown after finishing synchronizations

    Add a button to schedule the shutdown of the machine after finishing synchronization, and also after finishing only Downloads or Uploads, currently I make a forecast for the rest not synchronized with my connection speed to put a shutdown -t, a button that would trigger the shutdown on end of synchronization would be much more practical and accurate.

  11. Enable the possibilty to stop syncing a specific file

    In places of bad internet connection or some circumstances, synchronizing large files seem to block synchronizing of files added later to the queue. Here, it'd be nice to let the user stop syncing specific files.

  13. Pin the sync status window

    I'd like a little pin button that allows you to keep the sync window open when clicking away from it. It pops up when you click on the onedrive icon but then disappears when you click anywhere else

  15. File search and preview with files on demand

    Currently file search (inside the file) as well as file preview function in explorer are completely non functioning.
    This URL says otherwise: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/file-types-supported-for-previewing-files-in-onedrive-sharepoint-and-teams-e054cd0f-8ef2-4ccb-937e-26e37419c5e4
    Yet it still does not work. I have already discussed this with support and they were able to reproduce the problem.

  16. Go back to original Word and Excel

    Because when you type in Word and then print nothing ever lines up. Also trying to move files around is a nightmare and trying upload too! One drive is the worst invention.

  18. Nhờ bạn giúp! Tôi cảm ơn.

Giúp tôi trả dung lượng ổ đĩa C như cũ. 2/.Giúp tôi cách lưu trên máy tính mà dùng Onedrive, nhưng không làm tăng dung lượng máy tính. Tôi cảm ơn.

  19. Always processing changes issue

    OndDrive has been processing 11changes for days without noticing the 11 local files are corrupted. Onedrive should have a mechanism to identify files not accessible and summarize to users.
