  4. Clearing of the backup history

    As per my knowledge you should add a feature that enables the user to clear the history of his/her backup data so that it can prevent the leaking of the data if anyone uses the user's computer apart from the owner of the computer.

  5. User friendlyness

    Ya'll are wanting to make money? I have to ask because it isn't apparent. I suggest you ask for volunteers over 50 to see if they can use your apps. I have been using Google One but I AGAIN am going to try & enjoy my laptop & bought Office 365 & set out to use OneDrive & I can't find "back up my computer, I don't want to go to folders & choose. I had a secretary because I am no good with files & such. How do I move my saved or stored "stuff" to OneDrive? I don't…

  6. Make it stop downloading everything when I want to look at one item. I can't use it too confusing

    The software is not at all intuitive. It starts downloading multiple items when you view an image you can't see instantly what's backed up and what isn't. If I update a file I don't know if it's going to update the download or the one drive version. Useless i have to keep external drives as well as I have no confidence that if I delete from PC it won't delete the back up on one drive.

  9. Change name of sync client

    The desktop sync client have the same name as an individual user's private file storage is causing so much confusion. Its a huge unlock to be able to sync one's sharepoint libraries but no one "gets it" because they think the onedrive sync client IS onedrive. SUPER CONFUSING.

  10. OneDrive Usage and simplified use of storage

    There are three of us using my Microsoft Family account. However, I need the remaining OneDrive Storage added to my account rather than adding additional emails.

  13. When we disable oneDrive make it so it does not auto start again in the task bar.

    When I disable OneDrive it restarts at some point in the task bar and slows my computer down. I do not use it at all. Everything I save, is saved to an external hard drive so I do not need OneDrive nor do I even want it on my computer. Let us remove it and make it so we do not have to have it.

  14. Allow us to upload new files while keeping the same shared link

    Whenever I make changes to an image or file and upload the new file to One Drive, I have to get a new shared link. Other file sharing services (Box, Google Drive, etc.) allow me to manage versions so I can keep the same shared link. I would really like a way to do this in One Drive so those who have the old shared link don't get messed up. Thanks!

  15. Please don't reset my Save settings with Updates

    Updated Windows this week, and now my Office files AutoSave on open, destroying the info of their prior save date needed to find proper files. Needed to go to OneDrive settings and turn off "sync Office files on Open option under Office tab. Took two hours and chat with two MS Support staffers to fix this. Like being caught in a drive-by shooting.

  18. how about you unistal 1 drives from everyones computer. That way I won't have to disable it on every new computer.

    1 Drive program is trashy. It's really annoying. And doesn't need to be installed with windows. Ever.

  19. Right click menu integration

    I want OneDrive to be integrated into folder right click menu so that i can choose to upload and use the file online directly without having to copy the file to Onedrive folder and choose to have it available online, it's a waste of time. Thanks.
