  1. Change Wording of "Always keep on this device" to "Keep on this device" (Remove 'always')

    Change Wording of "Always keep on this device" to "Keep on this device" (Remove 'always')

    The phrase "Always Keep On This Device" is confusing and misleading. The functionality of on-demand files means that you have the option of downloading and offloading files at a time of your choosing.

    When I see the phrase "Always keep on this device", it sounds like OneDrive intends for my device to be the primary and only storage location for these files. "Always" indicates permanent, ongoing.

    I think "always" should be removed so that it doesn't imply that choosing this option is a permanent action.

  2. Again I my files are messed up and I get a message saying I can't save the file because it's open on another computer. THIS ISN'T TRUE.

    because it's open in another computer. THIS ISN'T TRUE. IT ISN'T OPEN ANYWHERE ELSE. PHOOEY. IF YOU CAN'T FIX THESE PROBLEMS, THEY WHY DON'T YOU TELL ME SO I CAN FIND ANOTHER WAY TO SYNC MY FILES. PHOOEY

  5. control data synch accross multiple devices using onedrive to manage data usage on a metered network connection. Had PC's and IOS devices

    control data synch across multiple devices using onedrive to manage data usage on a metered network connection. Had multiple PC's and IOS devices connected to my onedrive account and this caused my daily usage to increase 15 to 20 times normal.

  6. Frequent failure in uploading huge files

    I am trying to upload a file of size 2.7GB. Onedrive for business is syncing it daily and one day it could upload 900MB. But when I had to shutdown my laptop and start next day it again trys to upload from begining. Why cant onedrive for desktop start upload from where it stopped? it is not a good for a tool to take more than a fortnight to try uploading a huge file.

  9. Why is sharepoint not working with the next gen client? I've uninstalled everything. I click sync and nothing. Can't add library manually.

    This seriously sucks, I'm on training out of town, and I can't access any of my sharepoint files offline. The next gen client used to work. Why can't we just get the new client that actually works to install with the office 365 version?

  11. I subscribe to Office 365 Home. I have the 6TB storage with 1TB per user. This plan do not work for one user need more TB.

    I subscribe to Office 365 Home. I have the 6TB storage with 1TB per user. This plan do not work for one user need more TB. My idea is that Microsoft need to offer a plan with more TB for one user. A plan like this for one user able use the 6TB would be great. Even a plan with more than 6TB for one user would be GREAT as well.

  12. POOR onedrive document auto-save

    One drive document did not update automatically as i worked on it. Sudden restart of computer due to windows update occured. Restarted and autorecovered my document which i have WORKED ON FOR 3 HOURS. I clicked SAVED, and the OLDER VERSION REPLACED ALL MY 3 HOURS WORK.

    What is happening!? Why saving your autorecovered work REPLACE it ALLL with the PREVIOUS WORK???? JUST WHY?? i am going to kill myself now. Blood is on your hands.

  16. make it easy to use

    Look at how it worked in 8.1! Easy to turn on and off. The new, "improved" version is a nightmare. USELESS.

  17. Disable Shared Folder

    I cannot get over the convoluted interface of the Web Client. It's just an exercise in frustration. Even trying to find a previously posted idea on this subject in your 'suggest a feature or idea' option, how do I even sort through the myriad of suggestions that are present to get to one that is 'most like' the one I have here?

    My SIMPLE request is when selecting a file or folder in the Web Client, I have a SHARE link. I click on that, and sure enough, I get a SHARE link to send to someone. Now, how do…

  18. Let me actually turn this **** off.

    When I uncheck start when windows starts. I shouldn't have one drive start itself when I boot my computer.
