  2. Automatice Backups

    OneDrive does not allow automatic backups of my data on drive D, nor does it permit me to select which files I want backed up. My drive C cannot accommodate all my data, so paying Microsoft for 1 TB of cloud backup is useless to me. You should allow your clients to choose what files will be automatically synced, regardless of which drive or folders they are in. I am really annoyed that I am paying for this services which does nothing for me. Incidentally, I cannot read the terms below that you require me to agree to in order…

  3. Desktop icons Shortcut symbol

    Shortcuts on the PC (local) desktop should be clearly displayed as such (with the usual 'bent arrow' symbol) ABOVE the OneDrive status symbol to better differentiate between shortcuts, folders or applications.

  6. Dictionary

    If it isn't already possible, I think the option to download different dictionaries (ie. Greek/Norse Mythology), would be swell.

  8. Delete content from this member's devices the next time they come online

    Delete content from this member's devices the next time they come online.

    This is a feature your competitors have had for a while. The ability to remove my company's content from any device the next time it sync's with SharePoint.

  11. Easy backup and restore of the synced sharepoint folders

    It would be great to have a setting export and import option in OneDrive. Why? The uninstall of a beta version of OneDrive deleted the synced folders so I needed to resync all sharepoint folders again after the installation of the official version. I’m not sure if it is sufficient to store the files of folder %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\OneDrive and registry keys of HKCU\Software\Microsoft\OneDrive as setting export…
    This would be also helpful when you get a new laptop in a company (every 3 to 5 years) to be ready to work again on the new machine with the needed sharepoint folders.

  17. really need warning to send files to one drive

    really a mess that one drive uploads files automatically without warning, it should ask user if they want to upload files to one drive. everything uploads to one drive on new computer, personal files that should not be on internet, online storage don't have security, really a pain to get rid of files pictures on one drive, should be able to select all, delete all pics etc., really a pain to retrieve file put back on laptop, really a disaster why i don't want to use online storage, no control what is put there automatic from laptop phone etc.

  20. For the System Tray Applet, have a visibile "Tips" button, or have "Tips" in the "..." aka "More" menu instead of showing intrusive "Tips"

    Add "Tips" to the "..." aka "More" menu instead of spamming users with "Tips" "Commercials" on how to use the System Tray Applet.

    It may also be acceptable to have a "Tips" section in the Settings and a checkbox to "Turn off Tips".
