  3. I don't like one drive it is worst than a virus. The way you want me to add or buy more storage is a joke.

    I don't like one drive it is worst than a virus. The way you want me to add or buy more storage is a joke. To force me to have it on my computer is wrong. I have three computers on it beside this one and it didn't add any more storage. To me it is a rip off

  4. Make files On Demand on new machine without downloading them

    Hello, I have bought a new laptop, and I would like to make available all my onedrive folder on it, but I don't want to download them. So, in reality I want use the "on demand" option of onedrive.

    The problem is, to do that, I first have to download all the 92GB I have on drive, and then remove most of it from my PC by selecting the "free up space" option.

    It would be very useful to add a feature to Sync folders by making them on demand immediately, without having to download them first.

    Regards,

  5. Fix One Drive back to what it was before Windows 10

    Ever since upgrading from Win 7 to 10, every other day, and even sometimes more than once a day, I get told, while I am working on homework, essays and spreadsheets that "I don't have permission to save to this location" (One Drive). I am the only user, and of course the administrator.
    I usually end up saving my file to the desktop (if I'm lucky) and then I have to open One Drives folder and change the permissions to allow the home users full access (this changes back periodically) or I have to set the attributes of the files/folders…

  6. Back up as opposed SYNC

    At present the user has no flexibility to back up folders from pc to one drive without ALSO sync files from online to pc. The user needs to option to BACK UP files and NOT SYNC files both ways. The system as designed is very rigid and inflexible.

  7. faster info on available space on SkyDriver or OneDrive

    I don't use the OneDrive much because I can not click properties as I do on a storage drive and get available space. I have had too many notes telling me I have so many gigs added because of something I've done. Windows 10 is so slow that by the time I can figure out if there is space, I have gotten out a thumb drive or plugged in an external. I have been trying for an hour to find a straight answer to the question that updates to something started and now once again my computer is useless. The…

  10. I wish the Onedrive Software Can still take Screenshot even if there is no Internet Connection.

    Cannot take Screenshot when there is no Internet Connection. . Sometimes I wont be able to have Internet connection, so I hope Onedrive Software can still take Screenshots with or without Internet Connection.

    Thank you and more power!

  13. ใช้ยาก ไม่ประทับใจ

    เป็น app ที่ใช้งานยาก และไม่ค่อยสะดวก ทำให้ผู้ใช้สับสนระหว่างไฟล์ที่จะเก็บลงเครื่องกับไฟล์ที่เซฟไว้บน online สุดท้ายมักจะต้องโหลดไฟล์ทั้งหมดลงเครื่องใหม่ประจำ เสียเวลา ใช้มาหลายเดือนแล้วไม่ประทับใจเลย

  14. Option to have a delay on syncing files that were updated many times

    When applications are frequently updating and releasing the same set of files, OneDrive struggles to keep up. I suggest having an adjustable option for setting a buffer for these types of things. For example, if OneDrive tries to update the same file multiple times within a minute, allow a buffer of say 5 minutes to prevent OneDrive from trying to sync every change made to that file. This would prevent high CPU usage and battery drain while frequently changing the same files.

    Thank you for your time and consideration! :)

    JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE: (not more explanation)

    Using Intellij, OneDrive goes…

  17. Make warning about a locked file more prominent

    It happens too often with a few files i work with throughout the whole day (Excel, Word). I save this files hundreds of times during the dat. At the end of the day i close them and turn off my PC and then on another PC i find a morning only version. So whole day of work is not synced for some reason. Because OneDrive for some reason was not able to access the file. If i open OneDrive action center it shows a red warning there. But i vert rarely look into action center. I would love for it…

  20. It would be really helpful if, when updating, or anything really, if it would say where it is getting the files FROM

    It can be very confusing if you don't know where the update is coming from, as partway through, the source folder disappears from the original place, to be put into the OneDrive folder
