  1. Desktop Files

    Thanks for the app. It's been a great option for storing my files across multiple devices.

    Would love if the files on my desktop could display showing the first page of each file (eg, File A, a book, displays the cover of that book - as it used to be until several weeks ago), rather than displaying the bland red and white 'pdf'.

    Thanks.

  2. When OneDrive finds a file that needs to be renamed show the file. One drive fails to automatically rename, but does not display the file n

    When OneDrive finds a file name that needs to be renamed, show the file name and when I click on file name either open in in Explorer for me to rename or allow me to rename there.

    OneDrive is kicking on a file and when I click let OneDrive rename (something I should never have to do) it fails.

  3. Process priority into admx

    Could you please add process priority option into admx, setting onedrive process to low really help to make computer responsive again and stop crashing without increasing the sync time.

  8. Synchronize and backup automatic

    I hope OneDrive can backup other folders besides documents, for example the folder in Data: D also synchronizes automatically like Google Dr

  9. Provide a verbose mode for seeing what OneDrive is processing during a sync. It appears hung up, but I'm guessing it is actually working.

    Often we change things on our SharePoint which results in the OneDrive sync getting into a lot of activity on the desktop. In this cases, typically OneDrive just says "Processing changes" and provides no insight into what, if anything, is actually happening. This results in users rebooting their machines, which stops the services and actually could be creating more problems.
    Providing at least a verbose mode that could provide more insight into what's happening when needed could help get through these situations.

    Ik heb ondervonden sinds ik alles met elkaar liet synchroniseren alles en overal dubbel of meer op komen te staan!! Onder andere submap. Pff je word hier onnozel van dat ik het heb opgegeven. Ik ben alles van de cloud aan het halen en ik ga er een software laten doorgaan zodat ik alles in enkelvoud heb van men afbeeldingen en niet 10 dubbel van elk. Dan gaan ze terug online in een andere cloud waar ik levenslang 100gb cloud heb voor 39dollar betaald, tevens kan ik alle clouds die ik bezit waaronder deze onedrive in kan beheren en alles…

  18. Bad icon sincronized on folders with pending sincronization

    In one-drive client, if a paren folder have some file with pending sincronization or with some file stored locally, it shouldn't show the cloud icon. It should show the pending or green check.
