  1. Trash everything about OneDrive including user reqs, UI design, tech specs, code base, etc. Hire new people (age 30+). Start over clean.

    As far as I can tell, none of MS's "help" docs and annoying videos tell you WHAT OneDrive actually is, only about how wonderful it will be and all the cool benefits it delivers. Setting it up is painful (I've worked in IT for 20+ years all the way from DOS days so I know a little about it). User guides are nearly useless. Get it wrong and it overwrites your latest version on your local PC with whatever it thinks is better on OneDrive. If you don't have infinite bandwidth, it's a huge resource hog (we rustics out here…

  3. Better Syncing Control & Flexability

    I am a developer, I get SOOOO many Windows Alerts and 'You need permission' or 'Can't access' messages because some folders are in a perpetual 'sync pending' status. Specifically bin/ folders or lib/ folders like in node_modules that prevent ANYTHING FROM HAPPENING. It's aggrevating. It's 2020, we pay for this service and don't have options that support our respective needs. Just please give us options to exclude subfolders all together from being indexed/synced to the cloud, or let us use patterns of file types or folders with specific properties. I love OneDrive, it's ALMOST perfect, but it's really frustrating to…

  4. IHAVE NO ITEM TO SYNC ONE DRIVE TO. IT SAYS IHAVE 3 ITEMS NOT SYNCED. I HAVE HAD NOTHING SYNCED AT SINCE I HAVE OWNED THIS LAPTOP. IF A

    EXPLAIN TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOTHING TO SYNC TO WHAT IS MEANT BY SYNCING. ONE DRIVE SAYS I HAVE (ONLY) 3 ITEMS THAT ARE NOT SYNCED. I HAVE HAD THIS LAPTOP FOR A FEW YEARS + I DON'T THINK ANYTHING HAS BEEN SYNCED. THE 3 ITEMS ARE GAMES I PLAY ON BIG FISH. I HAVE MANY GAMES ON BIG FISH BUT I DON'T REMEMBER 1 DRIVE EVER TELLING ME THEY WEREN'T SYNCED. I SUGGEST YOU EXPLAIN -CLEARLY- WHAT YOU MEAN BY SYNCING IN THIS CASE.

  11. Get rid of the stupid "OneDrive - Back up files" warning (and this whole feature)

    OneDrive is NOT a backup service. I don't want (and can't, by policy) backup my data to your servers. And I don't want your stupid "OneDrive - Back up files" warning sign & reminder in the Settings app.

    Quit implementing such **** half-baked "features", and focus on making OneDrive useful and bug-free.

  12. Add option to sync/combine "Desktop" folders

    I'm not sure if this is a bug or feature with the current version of OneDrive, but the two versions can get out of sync. You end up with a multitude of extra links that go to empty folders... empty except for that linked file that only takes you to the OneDrive instance of that folder. If you are not using OneDrive on that machine, for whatever reason, the links do nothing. But you are still left with multiple instances/versions of that folder, in different locations.

    Have a single option in OneDrive settings to merge these separate folders back with…

  15. OneDrive使用优化建议

    建议在中国建立数据库,因为OneDrive使用太费劲了,最好在中国建立一个数据可,中国的市场不是应该更大的吗?另外也可以与天翼云盘进行合作,他的同步功能还不是错的,至于腾讯微云太费劲了,还不如OneDrive呢!
