  4. Enable Sync with USB

    When we connect a mobile device with USB, one drive could detect automatically this device and suggest to free up space (images, videos) direclty to PC.

  5. Give us the ability to NOT SYNC THINGS

    Make it easier to just NOT sync items. I can't even get these annoying 'ticks' off of my desktop icons now.

    I'm forced to buy space to upload 42GB of videogame data JUST so I can STOP THE SYNC because I can't stop it half way? What the **** is that about?

    And the error message on my start-up is frustrating as ****. I have a 1TB hard-drive, and OneDrive allows 15GB of space. Why won't it just let me remove things!? I don't want 1TB of videogames stored online anyway!!!

  8. content in the columns in the folder/file viws to be scrollable horizontally so that all of the filenames can be seen.

    I find that folder uploads frequently contain groups of files where the file names only differs towards the ends of the names and thus to see which file is which, they in turn need to be selected as if renaming them in order to determine which file is actually selected.
    It would be a great feature if the user could set individual remembered (in cookies? or account details at login) with those column widths dynamically alterable and scrollable so that users can see the ends of the filenames.
    This would also be useful in the activity/actions/problems pane.

  11. upload and sync. selected by user

    As in previous versions onedrive only uploads camera roll and some document. But in latest it uploads all images. And there is no option to stop a particular folder to stop. So make it user specific so that one can decide what to upload.also a feature should be included that user can download all pictures or a folder or multiple files by single click. Also text msg and call log sync. Option should be included and integrated with skype,cortana,and one drive.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
