  3. ccweems!gmail.com

    With the onset of longer passwords why not put a reveal button to allow you to confirm password on all boxes that require a password? I expect exploited passwords are very rarely due to someone looking over your shoulder. If anything make it a security option. I work by myself and I am willing to take the chance...

  6. OneDrive security - Prevent everyone to share a file when they are not the owner

    I created one file, in this case a OneNote NoteBook and shared it with friend A with "Required user to sign in before accesssing docuemnt" via OneNote for Desktop. When friend A received the invitation email from me, he clicked the link "View in OneDrive" then he still can view and edit my NoteBook immediately wihtout login in to his Live account first. Then he can just share the link he got from the invitation email and send it to everyone else and they all can view and edit my NoteBook without my permission.

    If he logs into his Live…

    Then I logoned the Web Client and found that those files are empty.

  10. a

    have a way to pause syncing. speed up upload and download. have a way to get rid of the 'upload error messages' when onedrive errors occur, haviubng the erroras stay in the Queue and visible even after I've seen them - and there's no action available for the errors anyway.

  12. Update OneDrive Windows client so the "provide feedback" link points to uservoice

    After the latest update I got a pop up message from OneDrive telling me that my files are synchronized (yeah!) and that I need to upgrade to Office 365 (I already am using O365). I decided to click on the help -> provide feedback link in that pop up. It brought me to https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/category/86087-windows and a message that the forum was closed and that I needed to go to onedrive.uservoice.com to pick a forum.

  13. In Onedrive Backup of Documents folder should not be restricted to all or nothing.

    At present the backup of computers covers all documents or nothing. I have recently availed of the backup facility in Onedrive, but immediately ran into a problem when I tried to use a software which automatically download stocks and mutual fund prices for updating My Microsoft Money program (which I have used since the 1990s and is the best money management software in the market) saved me a lot of labour each week has stopped functioning. This problem could be resolved if I had the ability to choose which documents to backup, thereby I could prevent all linked files being…

  15. OneDrive for Business bliver ved at søge ændringer.

    OneDrive for Business bliver ved at søge ændringer.

    Jeg har løst det ved at sætte flueben i "Spar plads og download filer, efterhånden som du bruger dem" og lidt senere fjerne det igen.

  16. Boa tarde

    Boa tarde, no meu trabalho, eu logo o computador com uma senha e um usuário, porém as vezes acabo me levantando do computador e não procedo com o bloqueio do mesmo. Meu Onedrive, fica junto com minhas pastas de rede, então acho que seria extremamente funcional a criação de um modo de colocar uma senha para que eu abra o One Drive (PASTA), aumentaria a segurança com certeza. Por vezes temos que fornecer nossa senha no emprego, devido a alta demanda ou em caso de falta por doença, em que outra pessoa precisa acessar o computador. Espero que seja útil…
