  1. Recuperar datos de OneDrive de cuenta profesional o educativa sin licencia ≡ OneDrive

    Buenos días.

    Antes de nada explicar que microsoft comunity me manda aqui para explicar mi problema, si necesito hacer algo mas o estoy haciendo algo mal por favor comuniquenmelo cuanto antes, pues esta consulta debe ser respondida antes de un mes. Una vez explicado muestro mi problema:

    La cuenta con la que estoy escribiendo este post (@.onmicrosoft.com) la obtuve hace unos meses en un anuncio de ebay que proporcionaba licencias (en mi caso una cuenta con licencia) de office 365 a precios bajos. Cual es mi sorpresa, que ayer, metiendome en onedrive ocurrio un error, revisando la cuenta…

  2. 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

  5. Let one drive fetch files from this PC - doesn't work on all PCs

    I have ticked the option as instructed on both my PC and my Surface Pro expecting to see both devices on my OneDrive Brower, but I only see my Surface not my PC.

  7. Please, please, please: Allow me to hide date and size under folder names

    This is for the web version and the iOS version. I put my photos in folders. I label each folder by year. I might have created the "1995" folder in 2011. Why do I need to see the date I created the folder when I have a better, more accurate name for the folder? I don't care about the file size. All I want is the folder name. Some people may find this useful. How about making this configurable?

  8. Back Up Defaults

    It would be very beneficial to allow for more control over what gets backed up to onedrive and what does not. I use my PC at home for work and home stuff - especially during this pandemic, , yet I cannot easily control what gets backed up to one drive and what does not. I cannot have sensitive work things on another drive outside my work network, yet I cannot easily click something to stop auto syncing. I have all over the place now that I will need to fix. Having said that, I am going back to google stuff...

  12. configure the maximum amount of the processor that the program can use.

    configure the maximum amount of the processor that the program can use. I currently have more than 250G that are synchronized in one unit. The problem is that the program has reached 73% of the processor. the computer slows down, so I have to pause the synchronizatio

  13. 15gb file limit - autotranscoding

    onedrive 15gb file size limit affects mainly old video files, MOV etc

    if onedrive detects a file larger than 15gb it should look to convert the file(s) to a more modern standard, in this case MP4

    the permissions to convert files on the fly would be given by the user/default

  14. Problem with OneDrive and PowerPoint

    I upgraded to Office 365 and started using OneDrive about two months ago and since that time I am having a problem creating videos in PowerPoint. If I start creating a video in PowerPoint and open another PowerPoint file at the same time, the original PowerPoint file "forgets" where it was storing the video to and prompts me to re-enter the storage location. This problem has only happened since I started using OneDrive. I'm not sure if this is a OneDrive problem or a PowerPoint problem.

    Here are the steps to reproduce the problem:

    In Microsoft PowerPoint initiate an export…

  16. Sync Broken

    Opened Excel file stored on my hard drive's OneDrive folder and noticed it was not the latest version. Opened a backup of same file on my network drive, did my work on it, saved it. Then tried to copy over the latest network drive version of Excel file to OneDrive folder. It won't copy (replace) over the OneDrive file! Had to delete the OneDrive file, then copy over to it! OneDrive is not working correctly!!!

  19. incorporate the option to turn off the computer when you are done updating onedrive files

    Just as you do when there are pending software updates, it would be great to incorporate the option to turn off the computer when you are done updating onedrive and sharepoint files.

  20. 5GB in today's world is unrealistic. Burned through it in no time. GDrive will be my go to now w/15GB

    Since my OneDrive has dropped to 5 GB, it is virtually unusable. Backing up my pics to my new laptop and it started blowing warnings at me left and right. Annoying. No clear way to specify a folder to NOT sync...ever. just a time frame. Useless. I will be going to Google Drive as they offer 15GB. 5GB is virtually nothing in this day and age.
