  1. Make OneDrive actually useful and allow it to sync any folder/files on your local PC that you want

    Allow OneDrive to backup/sync any local file/folders from your local computer and make it obviously available on any other computer in your account, for example, if your main computer is properly synced and "dies" you can set up a new computer and assume those files and folders again. Essentially, provide a seemless and reasonable backup solution for key files and folders that aren't limited to the file/folder locations that MS deems important.

  2. Standard windows folder view for shared files

    If you share a folder or file to another user the other user will only be able to have a share point view of the shared file or folder which has a different view and user feel which confused some basic skilled users.

    If the shared folder could appear in the other users onedrive file location in their desktop and keep the standard windows file view this would help basic skilled users.
    Maybe have a shared with me folder in the onedrive folder location.

  3. Allow instant login to 'view online' from app

    When clicking on 'view online' in the OneDrive App allow it to login to OneDrive online without having to fill out the email and password again (which it already knows).

  4. Login automatically like steam would on windows startup.

    So basically, I hate having to fill in my email and password every time I turn on my PC, I want it to login straight away, this makes the process much quicker.

  7. Massive improvements to sync required

    Two devices, sync seems to fail often, create conflicts regularly and simply not be fit for purpose. Any more than about 100 files hosted and the service is pretty much unusable.

  9. Summary Page in Local Client

    Provide a summary page of what has been updated or changed in Windows clients, just like the online version. So when the team is cllaborating, they can easily find the updates as online.

  16. Fix the sync problem: “Sorry, OneDrive can’t add your folder right now.”

    When i try to sync files I get an error message with very low information:
    “Sorry, OneDrive can’t add your folder right now.”

    It is very hard to figure out why. Even google can't help me. The best hit is this.
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/sorry-onedrive-cant-add-your-folder-right-now/354e224a-b911-4901-a893-1fc409742602

    Can you please make a better error message, so that it is possible to know why it can't sync, and perhaps a suggestion for what to do about it?

  19. Синхронизация файлов

    Нужно чтобы синхронизация облака не зависела от локальных файлов на компьютере при удалении файлов на компьютере они удаляются с облака. Это не удобно сейчас можно только самому отключать синхронизацию для сохранения файлов в самому

  20. Link Address to Upload

    I'm working with large files on my PC and the convenient way to Backup these files is through OneDrive on Windows. I have problem with this, I have to copy the whole content to OneDrive Folder, which again consume storage. What I only need is to work just like on the other platform wherein I just choose a file or select the whole folder and upload the whole content without copying anymore.
