  1. Support IPv6

    The current implementation seems to only support IPv4. My local Internet Connection is divided - IPv4 runs over a very slow Connection, IPv6 over another quick Connection. When I sync, OneDrive does it only via the slow ipv4-connection.

  2. a

    have a way to pause syncing. speed up upload and download. have a way to get rid of the 'upload error messages' when onedrive errors occur, haviubng the erroras stay in the Queue and visible even after I've seen them - and there's no action available for the errors anyway.

  5. Update OneDrive Windows client so the "provide feedback" link points to uservoice

    After the latest update I got a pop up message from OneDrive telling me that my files are synchronized (yeah!) and that I need to upgrade to Office 365 (I already am using O365). I decided to click on the help -> provide feedback link in that pop up. It brought me to https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/category/86087-windows and a message that the forum was closed and that I needed to go to onedrive.uservoice.com to pick a forum.

  6. Needs more flexibility to select file and folders for syncing , like whole desktop not drag and drop each time. ....etc.

    i hope it will be similar function as like a mega drive, it's has lot of flexibility to select folders for syncing , like whole desktop or doc and other folders, once you synced, any file and folder automatically will be sync regardless drag and drop data to one drive folder each time.

  7. OneDrive keeps reverting the Files On-Demand setting after application update.

    Each time Microsoft OneDrive Windows Client is updated, the Setting "Files On-Demand: Save space" is enabled even though it was previously disabled. This causes that recent files in OneDrive to be stored as an empty file in the Synched folder of the Windows computer.

    The upgrade should verify the setting before starting and make sure the setting is maintained throughout the upgrade to make sure any new files added to OneDrive during the upgrade are downloaded as expected.

  8. In Onedrive Backup of Documents folder should not be restricted to all or nothing.

    At present the backup of computers covers all documents or nothing. I have recently availed of the backup facility in Onedrive, but immediately ran into a problem when I tried to use a software which automatically download stocks and mutual fund prices for updating My Microsoft Money program (which I have used since the 1990s and is the best money management software in the market) saved me a lot of labour each week has stopped functioning. This problem could be resolved if I had the ability to choose which documents to backup, thereby I could prevent all linked files being…

  10. OneDrive for Business bliver ved at søge ændringer.

    OneDrive for Business bliver ved at søge ændringer.

    Jeg har løst det ved at sætte flueben i "Spar plads og download filer, efterhånden som du bruger dem" og lidt senere fjerne det igen.

  11. Boa tarde

    Boa tarde, no meu trabalho, eu logo o computador com uma senha e um usuário, porém as vezes acabo me levantando do computador e não procedo com o bloqueio do mesmo. Meu Onedrive, fica junto com minhas pastas de rede, então acho que seria extremamente funcional a criação de um modo de colocar uma senha para que eu abra o One Drive (PASTA), aumentaria a segurança com certeza. Por vezes temos que fornecer nossa senha no emprego, devido a alta demanda ou em caso de falta por doença, em que outra pessoa precisa acessar o computador. Espero que seja útil…

  13. Allow synchronisation to be stopped in the current state. Whether files are offline, pinned or unpinned, allow all sync operations to stop.

    My work account is at 'processing change' and my personal account is 'looking for changes'. The work on WAS synced until I added a sync sharepoint folder, and now it's constantly looking for changes.

    My personal account varies between 10,000 and 140,000 file changes, but never syncs fully.

    It would be nice to have an option to say 'kill the sync' and just allow onedrive to accept the state of offline, pinned or unpinned files. I could then use the overay icons (or the O, P and U file attributes) to find folders that are not synced yet, and then…

  16. sequential file upload mode on slow/4G/LTE connections

    I have some very large files uploading over a relatively slow mobile data connection. All files try to upload together which then takes longer than the working day and the upload gets reset overnight and starts again the next day. If there was an option to use sequential file upload (instead of simultaneous) then the files would be able to finish. A nice additional feature would be 'priority upload' flag set in the right click menu of a particular file jumping it to the top of the queue.

  18. One Drive is horrible

    One Drive is Horrible!!! Takes over all the Office applications even if you don't want it to and also many sync issues all the with or without good internet connections. Never had such issues with DropBox. I would expect money back from such a bad product

  19. I do not want one drive to start when I start my computer

    Allow me to turn off Onedrive so it doesn't start when I start my computer. I will never use the cloud to save any type of data. There is no guarantee that my data will completely secure and there most likely will never be.
