  1. Sync Broken

    Opened Excel file stored on my hard drive's OneDrive folder and noticed it was not the latest version. Opened a backup of same file on my network drive, did my work on it, saved it. Then tried to copy over the latest network drive version of Excel file to OneDrive folder. It won't copy (replace) over the OneDrive file! Had to delete the OneDrive file, then copy over to it! OneDrive is not working correctly!!!

  6. Provide the ability of add an existing online OndDrive folder to be added to the PC's OneDrive folder in Windows 10

    I need a simple mechanism to add one or more folders which exist in my online OneDrive account to be added to the list of folders which are synched under the OneDrive folder on my laptop which is running Windows 10. The content in each added folder would, of course, be synchronized over all devices.

  8. Issue: Tray icon indicates errors on MS Office-generated filenames

    The error indicator in the tray icon should ignore system-generated files, including temporary Office files. I had a perpetual "2 items can't be synched" message, but after clicking through to the report, it indicated All files are up to date." It took running the repair tool to discover that the only 2 files with issues were temporary MS-Office files, which use invalid chars in their naming ("~$<filename>.<ext>"). Once the repair tool renamed the files and the system was restarted, the tray icon returned to normal. A case was opened with PSS, who recommended reporting to UserVoice although this is a…

  9. Better Display

    I would like to see two panels (like the old Norton Commender), with local files on the left & remote files on the right (or top/bottom). We (most of the people that I know, 90%) are confused about where files are. Also the full path needs to be displayed & copyable (in case it is too long). All those alias are confusing.

    I do not know what do anymore. I am strongly thinking about switching everything to Apple iOS or downgrade to Windows 8 or maybe even XP???

  10. filter

    OneDrive needs to have filtering for photos. Meaning I should be able to see what photos are already in albums and which ones aren't for organization purposes.

  12. Request to upload

    This feature allows sending a link to anyone requesting them to upload any file. something like PayPal when you send requesting for money to be paid.

  13. Do not update to Win 10

    I use Win10 Pro and after a bunch of updates OneDrive has been disconnected on all the computers that I use. In addition, it does not upload my files to the server. Win 10 is a mess.

  14. Enable backing up the Personal Vault contents to an external hard drive, using Windows backup.

    I use the built-in Windows back up. The contents of my Personal Vault are not included in the backups.

  15. piece of junk

    Stupid onedrive has to sync every single file on the local drive before it lets you pick and chose which folder to syn and unsync.

    This is just a pathetic alternative to DropBox

  16. Add ability to ignore locked files from 3rd party applications

    Especially with AutoCAD DWG files there is a big problem. As soon as a DWG is opened, AutoCAD creates two lock files. These two files and also the opened DWG cannot be synchronized. If several DWGs are opened at the same time, OneDrive may not synchronize at all. It eats away at the opened files and no other synchronizations take place.
    It would make sense to ignore the opened files and instead process everything else that can still be synchronized.
