  1. Option for manual deleting

    I may want to delete things from one device to save space on THAT device, whilst storing it in the cloud. OneDrive then says what I delete from there, it will delete from all devices RENDERING IT USELESS TO ME. I had to uninstall it from my computer. Computer still trying to save to OneDrive. I wish I had never heard of it.

    Hi there, i am working with OneDrive for a long time now. Mostly happy. But, if I link an account to a OneDrive Client, it starts immediately synching after signing in and defining the Onedrive location. THIS IS A TERRIBLE BEHAVIOUR, since I first want to select the folders to be synched. THEN I WANT TO START THE PROCESS. Pls change this. Regards, André

  5. Allow file permissions in a sync folder with Can Edit

    I'd like to be able to create a forms or base docs folder to share, but while allowing permissions, I'd like to prevent anyone from saving over or deleting the file. That way I can allow someone to access the folder and see my updates to the files, but not risk them deleting them.

    If the view only permission is set, then they cannot open or edit the files located in that folder without downloading it from the shared cloud drive each time. I'd like them to be able to add the folder to their desktop so they have access…

  7. include an option to delete a screenshot from toast or open in the default editor from toast

    I'm used to creating screenshots via Alt + Print Screen and then pasting them into an e-mail or Paint. I like the feature to create a file from a screen shot. So two thoughts here. One is to let me open the file created with the screen shot from the toast with whatever is the default picture editor. The other is an option to delete the file created from the toast to clean things up.

  8. Make notifications when live services are used by other devices

    Basically notify me when live mail or onedrive is being used by other devices. It would be nice to know if someone else is using my account.

  9. group by type

    On my computer, file explorer is always sat in 'group by type', but when I access to oneDrive directory, items are not in group and sorted.

  10. Please allow OneDrive to sync on mapped samba server

    As homes are setting up samba file servers to centralize their data for better management, users would like to sync their contents over storage mapped as windows drive.

    I have succeeded in syncing this way however failed to launch the Files-on-demand feature as OneDrive client prompted "can't connect to Windows" things (I''m not using Windows 10 in English).

  13. Opção de Seleçionar Arquivos para Download/Upload

    Boa tarde,

    Gostaria de sugerir um recurso para o onedrive onde poderíamos selecionar quantos arquivos o onedrive poderia fazer download/upload.

    Hoje não sei quantos ao mesmo tempo ele esta fazendo upload ou download.
