  3. More Android-like design and more iconography, not less.

    Let's see who'll back me on this, I love iconography, and think that the ''image centric'' design was way more superior, and iconographic designs tend to be more feature-centric, plus it resebles the U.I. of ''Big Windows'' more.

  4. Suppress the warning in Setting that says "back up important files to OneDrive" in Win10 2004

    There is a very annoying warning in the homepage of the Setting app that goes away only when I allow OneDrive to backup my Document/Picture/Desktop folder. The problem is I don't want these folders to sync across all my computers.

  5. More WARNINGS of bas side effects

    I have 4 home computers I use for work, personal and extensive gaming. I got prompted to auto-protect my desktop, pictures, and document folders. I clicked yes on 2 of my computers and it scrambled gaming profiles and more, making all games on both computers unplayable. When I stopped the auto-protect all the files got erased from my computers leaving only the scrambled ones on OneDrive. Better choices and WARNINGS are needed before sending these kind of pop-up requests to users who may not understand the consequences of an auto-backup of primary folders on multiple computers.

  7. Increase # of characters in file folders 3-5 layers deep

    Jpg files in folders 3-5 layers deep are restricted to 8 to 9 characters. As an Entomologist inspect jpg files are set up by genius and species and Scientific names are always greater than 8-9 characters. Must expand folder and file characters 3-5 layers deep greater than 8-9 characters. Recommend 50.

  8. Make OneDrive an opt-in feature of Windows, not the default

    Discovered the presence of OneDrive after I bought a new PC from Dell. I didn't understand what it was doing at first, nor its purpose. After I figured it out, I wanted to remove it, as I do not use a smartphone, and even if I did, would never use it to edit documents or manage photos. Even with the help of a service technician, It took me a couple hours to figure out how to get rid of it. After first uninstalling, had to re-install, upload and re-sync everything, then unlink, delete all the files from OneDrive, and finally,…

  10. Consider testing your software before you ship it.

    The synch task just fails multiple times a day with no errors or warnings. Sometimes my data is there, other times it's not.

    I remember when Microsoft used to take other people's ideas and made them more usable; Onedrive has taken the dropbox concept and made a right hash of it. Awful.

  14. When uninstalling OneDrive it should also remove the Icon (link, pin) from Explorer

    This would prevent an ugly error message, when the user decides to delete the onedrive folder after he uninstalled the program.
