  2. Unabhängiges sichern von Ordnern in onedrive

    Ich würde gerne schnell (mit rechtsklick) im dropdown menü einstellen können, ob eine Datei oder ein ordner in (z.B in Dokumente) in onedrive hochgeladen werden soll.
    Manche Programme legen automatisch ordner an, die dann den onedrive speicher belegen und auf allen Geräten angezeigt werden.
    Ich will auch für diese einstellung nicht extra im Browser nochmal mein Passwort eingeben müssen

  3. Give the option to download a cloud folder without make it always on device

    Often I want to download all files in a folder that are only in the cloud, but without necessary keep it forever. So I mark to "always keep on this device", wait for download (sometimes for a ling time) just to mark off this option later to convert it on-demand.

  4. Inactive hours. Set it and forget it.

    It would be nice if we can set One Drive to only sign on and look for changes during the inactive hours we set (i.e. 1am to 7am). At present if we have a lot of files and One Drive is looking for changes, the computer response slows down dramatically. If One Drive only ran while I'm sleeping, etc., the files could be synced during that time, then pause at the start of Active hours.

  5. Make it to where you can choose single files to stop syncing.

    I wish you could make it to where you could single files not to sync to one drive. Everytime I try and import an excel document into a program on my computer it says its being occupied by another program. Its so annoying as I have to pause one drive and save it as some other file name to get it to import.

  7. Upload file directly to OneDrive.

    When uploading file to OneDrive it first creates another copy of the file on my drive before sending it to OneDrive and allowing me to make it available online only. Not only it takes more time to upload but also requires from me to have extra space and gives my ssd another unnecessary write which shortens it's life.

  9. Allow users to FTP or SFTP files to OneDrive location

    When working with large companies or automated jobs, it would be beneficial to allow users to be able to send files directly to a location in OneDrive without having the client or logging into a web interface. Use a local FTP client or website to send directly to one drive.

  10. Indexação de arquivos no ONEDRIVE

    Preciso que a indexação de arquivos pelo browser seja igual a indexação feita pelo "explorador de arquivos/gerenciador de arquivos/ file explorer" do Windows 10.
    Problema: Indexador de arquivos pelo browser assume indexação binária Ex: sequências de 1, 2, 3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,100,1000 e o correto seria igual ao do gerenciador de arquivos, numérico sequencial : 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,...

    Essa solução já existe no gerenciador de arquivos do Windows 10 bastava reproduzir na consulta via browser

  12. Stop duplicating my files PLEASE!

    Every single file manager software out there knows to ask if you want to replace a file when it finds a duplicate, except OneDrive. Why is it that we don't have at least the option to configure it so it will ask what do I want to do on such occasions?

    OneDrive asks for Office files, but just creates duplicates for all the rest, and this brings chaos to my workflow. On countless times I needed to check both files to see which was the latest, and it is even worse with the ones I have linked to my desktop,…

  16. Windows back up in a separate folder.

    At the moment OneDrive saves windows backup straight to similar folders in the root directory. Please can you at least get OneDrive to Put them in Folders like OneDrive/<computer name backup>/…
    Instead of just in the main folder. Is so annoying. I prefer it to be organised.

  17. About the path of items in OneDrive for Business when pinning with the Office app

    ■Title(件名):

    About the path of items in OneDrive for Business when pinning with the Office app

    ■Description(内容):
    現在、Office アプリにてアイテムをピン留め行う際、OneDrive 同期フォルダー内のアイテムを指定すると "https://~&quot; とクラウド上の URL のパスが指定されてしまう。
    Office アプリ内でのピン留めについて、ローカルのパスとクラウドのパスでどちらか指定できるように機能を拡張してほしい。

    Currently, when pinning an item in the Office app, if you specify an item in the OneDrive sync folder, "https: // ~" and the URL path on the cloud will be specified.
    Please extend the functionality so that you can specify either the local path or the cloud path when pinning within the Office app.

  18. WOAH - STOP, SLOW DOWN!

    You should NEVER* (unless given consent explicitly) set OneDrive as the default location of Documents, Pictures, and Desktop file locations. Many of my documents were auto-syncing without expressed consent or a setup and filled my OneDrive account in a single moment. I'm all for selecting or options, but forcing a product's use is sketchy.

    I'll go through and customize which folders will sync. Not everything is valuable.
