  1. Provide a verbose mode for seeing what OneDrive is processing during a sync. It appears hung up, but I'm guessing it is actually working.

    Often we change things on our SharePoint which results in the OneDrive sync getting into a lot of activity on the desktop. In this cases, typically OneDrive just says "Processing changes" and provides no insight into what, if anything, is actually happening. This results in users rebooting their machines, which stops the services and actually could be creating more problems.
    Providing at least a verbose mode that could provide more insight into what's happening when needed could help get through these situations.

  3. Stop forcing OneDrive on Windows 10 users.

    Stop forcing OneDrive on Windows 10 users. Its really agitating me. Especially since the location for pictures and documents on the 'This PC' window in File Explorer was changed to the OneDrive folder. Like Microsoft, Windows 10 is a significant improvement over the previous Windows versions. Stop ruining my user experience with attempting to force me into using OneDrive .

  4. How am I supposed to upload larger amounts of data? I have 600 GB to sync overall and I've only had 15 GB synced in 24 hours. This is insane

    How am I supposed to upload larger amounts of data? I have 600 GB to sync overall and I've only had 15 GB synced in 24 hours. I have a fast cable connection. This is insane, absolutely ridiculous.

  7. Sincronizar real sin Errores

    HOY EN DIA 15-FEB-2019 ONE DRIVE NO SABE NI PERMITE DISTINGUIR:

    Me gustaría que OneDrive Distinga Realmente que archivos son de que equipo y de que tamaño para poder Elegir que archivo se queda en caso de que Exista Duda por parte del programa, por ejemplo ¿ONEDRIVE NECESITA ELIJAS QUE ARCHIVO DEJAR": Opción 1: Archivo de EQUIPO DE ESCRITORIO "PC OFICINA" de nombre XXXxxXXx de tamaño 2.5MB ...... Opción 2: Archivo de EQUIPO PORTATIL "JOSE HP" de nombre XXXxxXXx de tamaño 4.0MB Opción 3: CONSERVAR AMBOS ARCHIVOS CON NOMBRE DE CADA EQUIPO.

    ES ODIOSO QUE SALGA EL SIGUIENTE MENSAJE: "X"…

  10. Please make right-clicking a file or folder in windows to "always keep" or "free up space" do what it's supposed to

    Currently if I right-click a file or folder in windows to "always keep" or "free up space" it will do the same for ALL FILES IN THE FOLDER!

    I am expected to select the file first before choosing the right-click option, which is unlike any other right-click option in Windows.

    Please make this either work as expected or provide a modal dialog "Do you really want to do this to all files in this folder?"

    This is really messing with me because I frequently forget.

    ALSO even though I stop this process as quickly as I can, it still resets…

  12. Play H264 / MP4 Files better, especially the Audio - Drop outs are a problem

    As of now, Google Drive & youTube play videos back the best! While Documents and photos are working fine on One Drive - MP4 file for video/audio play back are not - such a popular format for all videos is not fully supported on One Drive. I get audio drop outs especially in the music sections (consistently) no such problem with Google Apps or when i download the MP4 files from One Drive to my Windows 10 Desktop computer- it plays fine, without the dropouts.

  13. its too early to comment on this cloud storage, may be i need to familiarize myself with cloud and then explore this option,

    it should work fast (sync) and more importantly support team should use Microsoft team application in order to help the users, not just via phone which i firmly believe doesnt help the user to fix the issue over phone conversation. If support team DOESNT use "Microsoft team" whats the point to develop this application

  16. Show status of sync per file

    I would like to see the status of a sync or update, whether its in queue or in progress, and the timeline for the progress so I can see if there is a file holding up the progress of others, and I could choose to pause that or move it down in the queue.

  18. Easy quit/closing of the app

    I'd prefer not to have the prompt that I want to close OneDrive on my desktop if I ask to. At the moment, you right click on OneDrive in the tray and choose 'Close OneDrive' and then get asked 'are you sure?' Maybe the first time this message is useful for new users, but for regular users it's just a waste of time. Please remove it! Dropbox is much slicker than this and it could easily be mirrored.

  20. How about NO ONEDRIVE !!

    For anyone like me that doesn't want their privacy and freewill violated?? How about that for feedback? Even trying to give feedback YOU continue violating my privacy by demanding personal information from me to complete the posting.
