  1. Extra Warnings from Accidental Deletions of Sync-ed Files, when I'm not the Owner/Creator

    When Syncing locally a folder created by another user within the organization. If the person deletes some or all of the folder's contents within Windows, the deletes should not get reflected remotely without various warnings and 'Are you sure?' asked by the one drive app when performing the sync, especially since I am not the same person that created the files in the first place.

  3. Thumbnails for Office files not displayed

    In January or February 2021, some issues with thumbnails in the OneDrive folder in Windows Explorer have been fixed, and it is now displaying thumbnails for most file types. However, it is still not displaying thumbnails for Microsoft Office files (Word, PowerPoint, etc.), whether the files are available offline or online-only.

    This only happens in the personal OneDrive folder. The thumbnails are displayed correctly in the OneDrive for Business folder, as well as the synced SharePoint folders (again, both files which are available offline and online-only files).

  4. Make Sync Status Indicators (checks/cloud) optional

    The addition of green check marks to every single desktop icon and as a new column that cannot be turned off is obtrusive, distracting, and unnecessary.

    This indicator status should be something that is either off by default and seen in the Onedrive App, or easily toggled on/off in Windows Explorer.

    The column name should be changed from "Status" to "Onedrive" or "Sync Status". "Status" is meaningless and leads to people searching or creating a Helpdesk ticket about "why are there suddenly green check marks on all my icons?"

  5. Sync large folder when computer is inactive

    It would be great to be able to posticipate large sync only when the pc is inactive.
    In this way the synchronization could be focused on working folder.
    For instance I am working on a folder and I need to have synced quickly but Onedrive is also syncing a big folder I don't need to be synced now.
    I have to manually upload the most urgent files manually.

  6. Renaming in Window explorer with OneDrive re-selects files messing everything up!

    Renaming in Window explorer with OneDrive re-selects files messing everything up! It is AWFULLY frustrating to be halfway through renaming my file, have it get reselected, and lose all my changes, then end up with a totally bad file name. I'd like to extend the file refresh/sync delay to prevent this, probably just up to 20-60 seconds.

    I think this is an important security feature as it exists in JAVA environments for example ...

  13. Prevent downloading of shared folders

    Prevent viewers of a shared folder from being able to download the folder or it's contents. I want to be able to share the folder with meeting data with my colleagues without them being able to download the meeting material.

  14. I've been having problems with not knowing what the symbols are and general mis information. Can you add a small help button on One drive?

    I would like a easy to access help page to help out on me knowing all the information. Preferably near the top (in the circle) however a easy to access help page would be fine!

  20. Stop mixing 'photos' and 'pictures form My files'

    I packed and uploaded thousands of pictures in folders as sketch references through 'My files'. But they are all displayed under the 'Photos' tab.
    It's so hard to find my own photos in this messed-up timeline. It's super annoying!
    The problem is happening on all Onedrive platforms.
