  1. Make sure the time and date of the original files, copied to OneDrive is kept... For documents and photos this is really important....

    For me this is a really drawback to make OneDrive my main sync platform. I cannot trust the files are not modified from their time-line...

  2. fix the Files on-demand as it is a nightmare.

    Please fix the Files on-demand as it is a nightmare.
    The user never knows what is the reason why the files do not upload to the network and OneDrive conflicts with Office Upload Center.

    You know, testing the software and testing the integration of the software will give you good results if done right ;-)

    And yeah, sorry, I am not giving my ideas for free to Microsoft. nice trick ;-)

    How about making the basic connection tech run smoothly. We have several devises, the newest less than 4 months, using all kinds of cloud services and VPNs. The only service constantly needing special care and attention is onedrive. Which is why it is not really used for important stuff. Which again makes me some agitated because I pay for through the office 365 fee.
    Now that I'm letting out steam I would also point out that the service 'Your phone' is a complete F-up. But the answer to this would ring like "we are sorry to inform you that this…

    Windows 10 is a product of high quality. However, I'd like to help with my suggestions.

    I don't speak a word of English, I'm Spanish Castilla and the Castilians bothers us having to learn English (do not take it wrong, please). The case is for example:

    With OneDrive, you have a serious problem with the translation to the Spanish. The product is very good, however to not be fully translated into the Spanish of Spain, you are wasting large market posed by persons aged 45 years or more, these people are not willing to learn English. I have sensed that…

  7. Bug Report: Upload/Sync/Error icons do not correlate with actual file status

    As requested by OneDrive advisor who was unable to solve issue, I am reporting issue here: Red error icons appear on my folders in windows explorer despite all files being synced. The syncing icon also appears on folders when all files within such folder are synced. This seems to be a display issue only as all files available online and on hardrive. Unlinking and relinking or uninstalling and reinstalling does not solve the issue.

  9. Permissions needs work

    OneDrive needs to be made much more like Dropbox, which is hands-down the ONLY file syncing app I like using and actually trust with my files. The problem with OneDrive now when saving files to Windows is by the way OneDrive changes permissions on all files. This makes me really scared that my files are going to become locked and I will lose them for good. This has already almost happened on my PCs when I have tried saving all files to the computer.... OneDrive updates permissions to some weird funky permissions setting that if you disconnect your OneDrive account…

  13. Bring Back The OneDrive Windows Store App From Windows 8

    It was much more informative than the desktop app. I like to be able to see the files in the queue and other activities going on.

  14. win10 TP Build 10159. i now have the one drive up and running. However, i can not move the one drive path nor do i have the off line option.

    I am running windows 10 TP Build 10159. I now have the one drive up and running. However, I can not move the one drive path nor do I have the off line option. the surface model does not have a large Hard drive so this off line only option is the best of both worlds. I can still have it as just a back up and sync just the files I need at the time.

  15. Videos no longer play in OneDrive within site

    Recently my videos no longer play within the OneDrive website or IOS.
    They always played, I received a email from MS some codecs are no longer supported. Some videos that’s still play use the same Mov or MP4 format. On top of it Microsoft still charges me for a service that recently stopped working

  17. Open instead of download

    One of the things I like the least about One Drive is that I have to download what I've open rather than just a right click to 'open with' or simply double click to have it open to its default file type.

  19. Helytakarékosság

    Hasznos lenne számomra, ha mappánként be lehetne állítani, hogy mindig legyen elérhető a PC-n, vagy csak akkor töltse le ha használni akarom.
