  3. Add Better Support for OneDrive in Internet Explorer 11 when using New List Experience

    Since Microsoft has standardized OneDrive to use the new list experience (SharePoint) when using a browser, it appears the Search field returns an error when searching for a file using Internet Explorer 11. Users now have to click the 'Return to Classic OneDrive' in order to search for a file. The OneDrive web interface works find with Chrome and Mozilla however.

  4. can't copy files unless logged in and syncing

    I don't have "on demand" checked, but I tried to copy a 200Gb folder to another windows folder for backup, and after 2 days, it still said "preparing to copy" ...and was still counting files ...and after reading some posts and how others said it never copied, I decided to start over...so I logged in, now it counted 200Gb in less than 5 min. Why is it, that it won't work like "just a regular folder" when I want it to, when I don't want it to sync. It's like if it's not connected, you can't do a **** thing…

  5. Option to turn off all onedrive use

    I try to save files to my desktop and they default to the onedrive desktop and then after 10 days if I need to recover an autosave file I have to log back in and go through the hoops on a microsoft account I never use. I reset the default save location but the "desktop" suggestion for save location is still onedrive desktop.

    I know there are solutions for this but Onedrive is so intrusive and confusing to troubleshoot that I want to switch to open office because of this, and I am an experienced user. There is also proprietary…

  6. 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.

  8. Allow multiple users on one PC to share local SharePoint library folder

    If multiple users logon to a single PC, and sync SharePoint libraries, they will create duplicate local copies of all the files in the library. A common location should be automatically chosen for SharePoint file sync and access to libraries/folders beneath it should match SharePoint permissions.

  9. 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 .

  10. 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.

  11. Make it easy to determine what folders or areas of 1 drive are using the most space.

    It's difficult to determine which folders or areas of 1 drive are taking up the most space. Idea: make this easy.

  16. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. 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
