  1. under settings allow me to determine which folders are cloud vs local.

    Open the onedrive app, settings, choose folders. Instead of only downloading the folder allow the ability to cloud sync only in addition to download.

  4. Do not start OwnCloud

    Do not start Owncloud when I simply told it not to start on startup. This is a sign that I do not want to use it. So do not try to force me to use it.

  6. Deleting Folders with "Rights" problem on own PC

    Yesterday (17th October) while trying to solve why my "PC version" of One Drive showed 3 Files that I could not "Delete" because I had insufficient "Rights" as an Administrative "User", I considered the advice I had obtained from Vijay Verma on the "One Drive" support team, to refer the matter to Windows Technical team, and it struck me that the problem was in fact due to the way that Microsoft had configured the access to One Drive.
    I thus decided, that as I had a copy of the installation downloaded for One Drive still in my "downloads folder", that…

  7. Programming notes - unable to display code on phone

    I have programming notes in the form of html files. On a PC I can "open with" and choose an editor. Or I can view source code from within the browser. On the Windows phone I am landlocked. I can't view the code. Its only path is to the browser and on the windows phone browser version I cannot "view source code." Sure I can rename the code .txt but then I will need a duplicate for each file, an html file for the browser and txt for the phone. Is it possible to view the code from onedrive and…

  8. Default to protected not open edit access on files

    I learned the hard way that others could edit documents that I had saved. When I emailed they edited them and I was never able to retrieve the original. I was flabbergasted that open edit was the default!

  9. Allow Connected Services in Outlook to be disabled.

    We have found intermittent contact search issues, using the 'Search People' section under in the To-Do pane in Outlook. This is due to the Connected Services under Office Account, e.g. SharePoint/OneDrive. Sometimes a search will display the local Outlook contact. Sometimes it will show a contact from SharePoint (with limited information). The flexibility to disable Connected Services in Outlook, or prioritise local Outlook contacts, would be appreciated by some users.

  10. support editing xlsx and xlsm files with partialy protected cells

    currently it is not possible to edit and safe excel files with protected cells while the file is in ondrive.
    current workaround is : copy file to desktop, change , safe, copy back.

    it would be nice to apply the change directly while the file is in onedrive

    It will be good if we can pause files so small size file uploaded first. It would be great if we can pause and sync multiple doc according to our need . Currently if we pause it paused all files .

  13. OneDrive keeps syncing

    OneDrive keeps telling updating 15 files. Downloading 117 MB of 117 MB.
    I can't see which files it are. Can I let it stop.
    Shutting down and start the computer again didn't had any effect.
    I hope there is an idea.
    Thanks,

    John

  14. Error Code 0x80070652 in Windows 10

    The error code 0x80070652 is among the Windows mistake you will meet during Installing program upgrades in Windows 7/8/10, and it may also happens to give the Microsoft support Procedure for installing any software like Visual Studio.

  15. smart files

    Please bring back Smart Files placeholders for Win10!

    Yes, you can deselct folders in the OneDrive settings after the initial synch. However, it means that to see anything that is "cloud only" you MUST go to the web portal FIRST. The shortcuts made it SO easy because you could just open the physical folder and see it all. If you need something it would just download. You could also switch this feature on and off per folder or file with a simple right click. It was awesomeness!

    I read the article that said being rid of it was something about…

  18. Enable manual sync for Windows 10. It takes forever for my Win 10 PC to see changes to files that I created/updated from another location.

    In Windows 8, I was able to right-click on the onedrive icon and click 'sync', and it immediately pulled down any updates that I had made from other devices. Since upgrading to Windows 10, sometimes I have to wait hours or restart my PC to open files that I created or updated from another device, even though they are accessible when I log into office.com. I have even tried exiting and restarting onedrive, it says that it has synced, but it usually has not.

  19. Please remove the personal limitation on domain connected computers.

    Folder protection doesn't work on domain-connected computers when using a personal OneDrive account. I'm sure there are revenue reasons behind this. I have several children sharing a couple of computers and have them on a domain so that it doesn't matter which one they use. I wish they could still protect their own files with their own OneDrive account.
