  1. I would really like you to fix the Windows 7 CSISyncexec problem.

    A number of users on Windows 7 using Office 365 and the non-business version of Onedrive are experiencing massive slowdowns caused by multiple spawning of CSISyncexec processes. This has been going on for well over a year and has completely prevented me from using OneDrive for any practical purposes. I don't have a massive amount of daa on OneDrive and yet it is unusable. None of the suggestions from your techs on the Microsoft forum has worked.

  4. Eventual availability

    If a user is not sure whether a folder already exists, he should right-click on any other folder and search for a given name on the windows that shows up.

    A suggestion is to placing those folders not available offline in a red font, for instance (I know, Microsoft should have to re-write the Listview properties). By the way, the window that appears for choosing a given folder to make it offline is ridiculously small particularly if an user has dozen of folders with a small screen size, like me.

  8. Address the problems the user of the home version of the app where scrolling long file lists fails to include all files in the sectable list

    When a folder contains a large number of files the scrolling facility of the home user version frequently skips files that are on the store - as click in the scrollbar several times, and the process that selects files in the list frequently skips files.
    So - when trying to check if a folder contains all 20,000 of the files that should be there, the process of getting the app to store the names may take several hours as the user needs to wait for response after each "down" scroll click. and the bulk selection facility at the top of…

  9. Enable One Drive to eliminate doubles of photos .

    Enable one drive to eliminate any and all doubles in photos , this will help to keep one drive from being full at times since photos is usually the largest amount of files that fill up one drive in windows.

  12. Allow users to pick folders they want on their own machines to sync to OneDrive

    Space is the name of the game.
    As far as I can see, OneDrive is useful to keep files and folders online with all easy access it can give.
    But most users would be happier if we could save internal HD space could be a extraordinary feature.
    So, why you can't allow us to pick up folders we want to sync?
    'Cause if I have a 5 Gb folder and want to save space, how to do that if OneDrive demand a copy of that same files (and folder) to be able to deal with it?

  14. Don't abandon Windows phone!

    This app is much better and more functional on the iPad than it is on my brand new Windows phone. That's just not right - support your most loyal customers first!

  16. Sync Onedrive with a Dropbox share from soneone else, without having Dropbox account

    I don't have a dropbox account but I do have onedrive both personal and business on my desktop and laptop. All good.

    However clients often want to share a dropbox folder with me and I'd like not to have to install dropbox too.

    Is it possible that these shared with me folders can be sync'd into Onedrive so they and I can keep them updated?

  17. Change Settings Dialogue Box

    The dialog box shows "Unlink PC" when in fact, I am not linked. It also says "no account" but the terminology "account" and "linked PC" are not the ssame and are imprecise. This is confusing.

  20. Managing Security For Onedrive on different computer

    Dear One Drive Team,
    I find it is really convenience to have Onedrive installed on multiple computer. However, I would like to block access to my Onedrive on other computer. For example, I have one Laptop and a public Desktop. I would like to sync my datas on both computers. While the public computer keeps syncing, it is impossible for other to access it except myself. Do we have or develop some kind of function like this?

    Thank you,
    THINH
