  1. Better Display

    I would like to see two panels (like the old Norton Commender), with local files on the left & remote files on the right (or top/bottom). We (most of the people that I know, 90%) are confused about where files are. Also the full path needs to be displayed & copyable (in case it is too long). All those alias are confusing.

    I do not know what do anymore. I am strongly thinking about switching everything to Apple iOS or downgrade to Windows 8 or maybe even XP???

  2. filter

    OneDrive needs to have filtering for photos. Meaning I should be able to see what photos are already in albums and which ones aren't for organization purposes.

  6. Do not update to Win 10

    I use Win10 Pro and after a bunch of updates OneDrive has been disconnected on all the computers that I use. In addition, it does not upload my files to the server. Win 10 is a mess.

  7. Enable backing up the Personal Vault contents to an external hard drive, using Windows backup.

    I use the built-in Windows back up. The contents of my Personal Vault are not included in the backups.

  8. piece of junk

    Stupid onedrive has to sync every single file on the local drive before it lets you pick and chose which folder to syn and unsync.

    This is just a pathetic alternative to DropBox

  9. Add ability to ignore locked files from 3rd party applications

    Especially with AutoCAD DWG files there is a big problem. As soon as a DWG is opened, AutoCAD creates two lock files. These two files and also the opened DWG cannot be synchronized. If several DWGs are opened at the same time, OneDrive may not synchronize at all. It eats away at the opened files and no other synchronizations take place.
    It would make sense to ignore the opened files and instead process everything else that can still be synchronized.

  16. Print is too small

    The default print is too small. I would like the option to make the print bigger and easier to read. Many of you software developers are very insensitive to the needs of people with low vision. Either have a "bigger text" option in the app or make the app responsive to the font settings of the apple device.

  19. Make OneDrive actually useful and allow it to sync any folder/files on your local PC that you want

    Allow OneDrive to backup/sync any local file/folders from your local computer and make it obviously available on any other computer in your account, for example, if your main computer is properly synced and "dies" you can set up a new computer and assume those files and folders again. Essentially, provide a seemless and reasonable backup solution for key files and folders that aren't limited to the file/folder locations that MS deems important.

  20. Allow instant login to 'view online' from app

    When clicking on 'view online' in the OneDrive App allow it to login to OneDrive online without having to fill out the email and password again (which it already knows).
