  1. speed

    If you want upload speed, use Dropbox. Unfortunally I need 3 Gb for my files and One Drive offers that free but with painstakingly slow upload speeds. On purpos?

  2. Issue when by error you start to sync the OneDrive to your computer and it can't be stopped until fully sync

    Issue when we start to sync the OneDrive to your computer and it can't be stopped until fully synced. Once the process is started OneDrive doesn't allow changes to folders selected to sync.

  4. OneDrive uses 10%+ CPU when trying to sync an open file

    Example: When a Word file is being edited - OneDrive keeps examining if it can sync that file. Today, OneDrive.exe takes approx 10%+ CPU (on a SurfaceBook 2) to do this. Right when I close Word, the file is synced and OneDrive goes to 0% CPU. OneDrive needs to be updated to back-off on open files but still sync other closed files (do this in parallel).

  5. Synced files should prioritize computer over server

    When you are working with PowerPoint, linking Charts/Tables from Excel that are in your computer, but sync, and you hit refresh, it prioritizes the server address, what is pretty annoying. Server should be seen more as a backup type of thing than source or truth

  6. Bei allen Microsoft-Produkten kann man das Komma (,) bei den Dateinamen anwenden. Bei einem Wechsel auf onedrive gibt es Hiroglyphen.

    Bei einem Wechsel auf onedrive fallen bei allen Dateinamen die Kommas (,) als Hiroglyphen raus.
    Dies wäre sicher eine kleine Programmänderung.

  10. Fatal Windows 10 Problem - SD card disability

    I've upgraded to windows 10 from 8.1.

    I think the newer version is good. But the fatal thing is that OneDrive does not let SD card as the storing folder. In windows 8.1 environment, that won't be a problem, but newer one.. it's fatal to me since I'm using mini stick PC.

    I want an update to make it fixed!

  11. Why do you need 500 votes in order to respond?

    I hope that you respond to all useful ideas. Setting 500 votes seems a bit ridiculous. It appears that the only way someone will vote for the excellent ideas I have posted today is if they search for something similar and see my ideas. I would hope that you (the OD managers) review all ideas and classify them as potentially useful or useless. I agree that ideas you class useless only need a response when they reach a certain number of votes.

  13. Make it possible to upload large folders (first time upload) without requiring addl local disk space

    Today's laptops often have 256 GB SSD space only. There is insufficient room for the local OneDrive folder - hence the need for Cloud space. But your app is hopeless because it requires space for the initial upload. Using the Online Upload function also is not workable because Uploads often don't resume once interrupted. Interruptions can occur because of error messages from the Upload process or Windows 10 issues.

    I recommend that you look at the services offered by 2BrightSparks (SyncBackPro) and pCloud - they have solved these problem beautifully.

  14. SEMPLICITA'

    Buon giorno, non capisco per quale motivo non si possa con onedrive bussines condividere un collegamento direttamente dal menu a tendina come si fa per one drive. Tante volte ho la necessità di mandare un link veloce ad utenti i quali devono poter scaricare semplicemente i file senza bisogno di GROSSE COMPLICAZIONI

  15. prevent mass deletion

    I've experienced that accidentally it can happen that big amounts of files are deleted. I would propose to add a feature to the setup, which allows you to set a warning message if more than a certain number of files are going to be deleted. This number should be configurable. Some users might wish to get notices at any deletion some might only to be notified if more than 999 files are going to be deleted.

  19. PLEASE GET RID OF THE AWFUL SHARE SCREENSHOT SIDEBAR THAT WONT STOP POPPING UP

    Just get rid of it. Or make an easy way to disable it. It's a ridiculous hassle that has no point. And every forum I've looked at has no solution to the problem.

  20. Always keep on this device GPO/Prevention

    Add a GPO to prevent or remove "always keep on this device".

    This way we can prevent user from performing incredibly big syncs and letting the on-demand system handle what files are kept offline.

    As there are big limitations in number of files (last I heard the recommendation was 100.000 maximum files before you run into issues).
