  2. 作った写真アルバムをファイルに移動できるようにしてほしい

    携帯でワンドライブのアプリを入れたのだが、写真のアルバムを作り、パソコンのファイルに送ろうとしたのだが、容量が大きすぎで無理だった。
    一枚一枚は遅れるのだが、それはアルバムを作った意味がないし、とても非効率なので、まとめて写真や動画を送れるようにしてほしい

  7. 5 gig storage limit is useless.

    I have 5 pcs running win 10.

    Tying them together would seem the idea of one drive.
    But 5 gig limit used among 5 machines is not particularly helpful.

    What happened to cause such a low limit, when users data needs are only increasing.
    Not very forward thinking.

  8. Allow OneDrive sync folder to be located on a mapped drive

    We heavily use RDS at the moment, a user will have a homes drive mapped with all their MyDocs folder redirected to this. I want to migrate away from using RDS and legacy HW for the homes drive but to support this I need to locate their OneDrive folder on their homes drive and then configure auto migration. This ensures that the local drive (C:) of the RDS servers (we have over 150) are not filled up during the users migration. It also means that when the user is in RDS their files remain in sync until such a time…

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  17. Dictionary

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

  19. 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.
