  2. Files can't be synced with OneDrive and Resolution: "Open the document in Office for more information".

    Tired with OneDrive. Why the application always shows the error such as Files can't be synced with OneDrive and Resolution: "Open the document in Office for more information".

    These documents in OneDrive before, and recent days, it said this error. With ".doc", I must convert all of them to .docx. But there are issues with docx file. Reopen and save docx files with docx but some cases still problems.

    How is the stupid program.

  3. New Icon colour for OneDrive suggestion

    With the new Light Mode on the Taskbar the OneDrive Icon almost goes invisible, I'm suggesting a different colour for Light Mode or allowing us to pick our own colour.

  4. Stop making onedrive ******* pop up every 5 minutes. It's annoying as ****

    Just make it ******* stop. I've disabled the startup, and I exit it down, but it keeps popping up. I don't want it.

  5. Windows Phone (Lumia 920) no longer supports auto upload of photos.

    Have never changed my setting to auto upload. Deleted all my files on OneDrive due to lower storage limit, and still I don;t see any photos uploading to OneDrive. Another reason I chose to abandon OneDrive for storage of anything.

  9. Why is there no XPS viewer when accessing .xps files on OneDrive

    Why is there no XPS viewer when accessing .xps files on OneDrive?? Xps is far superior, smaller, higher quality and faster than PDF.

  12. In your "View Sync Problems" panel, provide an "Open Containing Folder" option, or allow the file path to be copied.

    I get a list of files with sync problems. I want to be able to open the containing folder from the Sync Problem dialog window.

  13. Have OneDrive Let You Choose The XLSX File You Want After Sync Problem

    I had a sync error for an excel file. Lord only knows why, the file wasn't open on ANY device.

    I was given two options:


    1. OneDrive would Download the file and save it under a new name so I would have both versions --OR--

    2. I could click the link and excel would open and let me merge the two files or choose the one I want to keep.

    The feature I would add is actually have onedrive do what it offered instead of opening the older file and saving it upon exit, syncing and overwriting the correct file WITHOUT…

  14. resume sync files

    It would be better if you can see which files are being uploaded to your OneDrive folder, the only message you are available to see is Uploading xx GB of xx GB at *** KB/s, xx Files remaining. I would like to see which are those remaining files. Thx

  16. Allow people to go to the cloud, work on and save files on cloud only...forget about syncing...too complicated.

    For me, MS seems to place too much emphasis on syncing with Onedrive as if there are tons of people who use their laptops offline. I personally cannot imagine using my laptop offline. I wish MS would just acknowledge that many people never use their devices offline; they are mainly interested in having a secure and easy place to put files in case their device crashes. What I would really like is to go to the cloud, work on my files and just leave them there safely until I need to work on them or see them again. Why can't…

  17. no way to easily remove this from our systems is very suspicious! I will never use it period !

    each windows update reinstalls onecloud which I think is borderline NSA back door **** ! this is not needed on any of my systems and Its this kind of over reach that lead me to using Macs 10 years ago. FIX this and allow us to permanently delete it off our systems !

  18. Edit verbiage

    This screen is usually displayed when users are not connected via VPN to a trusted network - it would be a good idea to be able to edit the verbiage to state to the end user to connect to VPN and retry.

  19. A simple recently accessed/used file selector in OneDrive (desktop)

    Windows used to have an extremely useful recently used/accessed file/folder picker in explorer. The newer quick access is much much less useful since it does not register recently copied/accessed folders. One Drive could and should have something equivalent and better to allow users to much more simply access current/recently used files (and folders) synced across PCs - i.e. those currently being worked on across PCs. Having to constantly hunt through complex file structures for different files is pretty irritating in this modern world.
