  1. Stop Sync

    There needs to be an option to stop a file from syncing for people that have slow internet and don't want a large file on their OneDrive. OneDrive started uploading Office 2019 and it said that I ran out of space, so I deleted it on the web app, but I can't stop it from the windows version, as pictured. It has to finish uploading before it can remove it... I ended up having to upgrade to fit it, but I will be downgrading as soon as this fiasco is over.

  3. Onedrive Sync notification pop-up or email for users

    users OneDrive are not getting sync they should get notified through emails or pop-up message that OneDrive is not getting sync we need this to be implemented in all users machine through GPO or through any other way.

    Basically sometime users won’t see there OneDrive and they are not aware of that OneDrive is not getting sync so is there a way to enable a notification for the users.

    We don’t want to fix the issue as this is a new implementation we are trying off.

  6. Bad icon sincronized on folders with pending sincronization

    In one-drive client, if a paren folder have some file with pending sincronization or with some file stored locally, it shouldn't show the cloud icon. It should show the pending or green check.

  7. Adjusted locking time in OneDrive.Com

    On using "Upload" command for large folders, especially on slow-uploading line connections, at any browser, the OneDrive locks, constantly. Please do consider the option to adjusted locking time even when OneDrive is used in browser This is extremely important in cases when one is locked out of MS account in the computer and needs to back up large user files in OneDrive and needs to enter two-step verification codes constantly after 20minutes.

  9. Признавайте Крым, не ебите мозга всему миру

    Был в Крыму в июле, а у меня onedrive пишет - что это Украина. Что за херня? Крым давно уже Россия, спросите у Владимира Владимировича!

  13. Provide a faster way to restore OneDrive files to a new computer.

    I restored to the new computer from my backup (63gb of data) and now sync has been running for 3 days and is only at 15gb. It is ridiculous to have to sync them all over again. I saved my personal settings in my Microsoft Account, why is the sync not saved?

  15. Add option to open file location from synch issues dialog

    I’d like an enhancement so that when the dialog displaying synch errors is open, an option is added that allows the user to click one of the files that’s having problems synching, and open it’s file location. Currently, the user must manually navigate in Windows Explorer to that file’s location.

  16. I'm only lamenting the loss of the old version

    It just sucks that everytime I have to send someone a file from my business (uni) account I have to share the file and I can't just send it.
    It also terribly sucks that I can't find the stuff I saved on One Drive without opening the app. The interaction with the rest of Windows just worked WAY BETTER before this latest update.
