  4. Coffre fort Onedrive synchronisable sur certaines machines choisies seulement

    il est inadmissible que le coffre fort descende par défaut sur une machine. le choix des dossiers à synchroniser doit être effectué avant toute installation et à la demande uniquement après une authentification forte systématique, sinon votre coffre fort ne sert à rien !!!

  6. Make OneDrive user removable and return the right to choose back to the user.

    I do not like OneDrive, nor do I like the ethos behind it. The application in its present form threatens the security of my information as once a file leaves my computer I lose control of its security which is a contradiction of Microsoft's frequent warnings about us, the user, protecting our computers. Microsoft has often said that we should be more security focused but OneDrive contradicts that because it takes the security of my data out of my hands and puts it with Microsoft or one of its partner organisations of which I, as a user, have little influence,…

  7. Zugriffsprobleme automatisch bearbeiten

    Neuerdings gibt es immer wieder einmal Probleme mit Zugriffsberechtigungen (weißes x in rotem Kreis auf dem Wolkensymbol) Fehlermeldung x Dateien konnten nicht synchronisiert werden, anscheinend haben Sie keine Zugriffsberechtigung.
    Wie ich inzwischen gelernt habe lässt sich dieses Problem durch Schließen von OneDrive und anschließendes Wieder-Öffnen beheben. Daher schlage ich vor, eine Routine zu programmieren, die im Fall eines Fehlers mit Zugriffsproblemen zunächst das Programm schließt und neu startet, erst nach zwei erfolglosen Reparaturversuchen sollte die Fehlermeldung ausgegeben werden.

  8. I feel there is overreach in one drive taking over the sync of my desktop without explanation

    the one drive desktop sync is "out of the blue" for those of us who simply use one drive for cloud storage.

    One drive is like a bull in a china shop.

    There should be an Introduction tutorial if a process is going to eliminate our data in a way that we do not expect.

    Microsoft is great in many ways but too much is assumed by those who are designing new features.

    There should be a whole department organized to serve as a liaison for explaining to neophytes unexpected consequences of a new application's function.

    This page is an…

  9. Bug in Bugs

    Hallo liebes OneDrive Team!
    Die OneDrive Software für Windows ist meine Meinung nicht gut genug.
    - Es gibt keine (schnell auffinbare) deutsche Support Seite.


    • Die OneDrive Aplikation hat viele Bugs. Einige davon:
      -- Die Synchronisierung wird nicht abgeschlossen. Der Ordner wird angezeit al waäre dieser nur auf dem Coputer verfügbar. Und nicht Immer Vefügbar.
      -- Die Position vom Icon menü im system tray ist störend und unschön. es wird nicht oberhalb von der Start Leiste angezeigt sondern höher.

    Es hat micht sehr entäuscht und verärgert diese Software zu nutzen.
    Bitte bessert die Bugs aus und testet eure Software vor der…

  10. Bring back copied link share in My Documents folder

    When I am in My Documents folder on my PC, up until recently if I right clicked on a file under the OneDrive folder I would have the option to "Share OneDrive Link" and it would automatically copy the link to my clipboard.

    Starting today, when I right click it only gives me the "share" option and when I select that it doesn't give the option to copy a link to share. Instead, it gives me a pop up window with different options on how to share to a specific email address. I want instead a link automatically copied to…

  11. Please, please provide someway of pausing or slowing down the OneDrive sync. It's completely clogging our broadband.

  15. OneDrive must able to match same files in different PCs

    Suppose I have uploaded 200 GB data on cloud from one of my computer. If I just install onedrive on another computer, all 200 GB download will take time and broadband data. There must be an option to just copy 200 GB data from pen drive from one computer to another and onedrive matches the content of both onedrive folders and does not download 200 GB data, just copies files/folders which are different.

  18. File Deduplication

    I'd like an easy way to check my files for duplicates. Ultimately, I still want to decide which file to use, but it would be nice if you had a feature where I could press a button, and it would scan my folder and find all the duplicates so I can clear some space.
