  1. Include "PowerRename" functionality as part of OneDrive install

    I think it might be useful to include Microsoft PowerToys' PowerRename as part of the OneDrive install, or it's functionality.

    Why?
    - a space takes 3 characters (&20) in SharePoint storage. These extra characters add up across the entire file path and could cause sync issues for the end-user.
    - end-users may have many existing files that may require 'clean up' or conversion to more efficient file naming convention. PowerRename tool permits renaming single or multiple file's space character to a dash (or other acceptable character).

    OneDrive could even have a program setting option to:
    - continue using spaces in…

    When we activate "files on demand", the thumbnails of audio and video files simply disappear, showing only the icons. Even leaving on both sides: local and cloud. Which is quite strange.
    As a OneDrive subscriber I end up losing this function that is very important to save disk. Something needs to be fixed on OneDrive.
    Disabling "files on demand", thumbnails appear perfectly.
    In theory: it needs urgent correction.

  5. Stop flickering error bar on PowerPoint in OneDrive folder when network unstable

    Stop flickering error bar when network unstable.

  6. UNINISTALL

    It's simple....UNINSTALL! This has been a nightmare as every time I unlink this and clear down my files as I don't want them online it just relinks and fills it back up again, filling up by 5gb so I can't work or save any documents. I wish I'd never bought this computer with this on it.

  8. Can we have SKIP option along with REPLACE while Uploading files to Cloud Web Folder

    Can we have SKIP option of already synced file along with REPLACE option when manually syncing large size files when sync fails due to slow internet or high file sizes & to avoid same file being uploaded multi times. When any changes made on another system the same file can be replaced with the available options. Also can we have option for keeping both files instead of just replace only where the same file renames the uploaded file as a copy or with _#.

  10. I shouldn't need to catch OneDrive not syncing to make changes to settings

    It's so hard to catch OneDrive not syncing, so it's difficult to uncheck syncing folders. Queue it up at least.

  11. Allow scheduling of when the sync should start.

    It would be very convenient if we could schedule when the files should start syncing. This way we could schedule the sync to happen during non-active hours.

  13. Fix OneDrive uninstall so it restores default folders and do not force a move of files.


    1. Fix the OneDrive uninstallation issues.

    2. OneDrive MOVES documents/pictures/videos into new folders under username\onedrive and then PERMANENTLY changes the default locations.

    3. Uninstalling OneDrive does NOT restore documents/pictures/video folders back to their default locations

    4. After OneDrive has been installed THE ONLY WAY TO RESTORE DEFAULT FOLDERS IS TO MANUALLY EDIT THE REGISTRY!!!


    5. Allow OneDrive to 'backup folders from their existing locations. (aka: Don't move them!)


    OneDrive looks like a virus, acts like a virus, and is not possible to uninstall without editing the registry .... conclusion: OneDrive IS A VIRUS!

  16. farms1004

    I use OneDrive using my school account on MS 365.
    But we don't get 1TB of capacity, so we're using the 100GB promotion.
    Please provide a solution as soon as possible.

  19. Flexible OneDrive Storage Option

    The current onedrive plans available are 100GB, 1TB and 6TB.
    Please consider more flexible options like 2, 300GB or 500GB (with or without the office apps). 100GB to the next tier, 1TB is a huge jump, in terms of pricing as well.

  20. Fix Personal Vault.ink error on One Drive personal

    My idea would be for the coding monkeys at MS to fix the code causing the personal Vault.ink error on one drive. This product is a complete fail ...... get it fixed and patch the **** thing.
