  1. Make files On Demand on new machine without downloading them

    Hello, I have bought a new laptop, and I would like to make available all my onedrive folder on it, but I don't want to download them. So, in reality I want use the "on demand" option of onedrive.

    The problem is, to do that, I first have to download all the 92GB I have on drive, and then remove most of it from my PC by selecting the "free up space" option.

    It would be very useful to add a feature to Sync folders by making them on demand immediately, without having to download them first.

    Regards,

  3. Fix One Drive back to what it was before Windows 10

    Ever since upgrading from Win 7 to 10, every other day, and even sometimes more than once a day, I get told, while I am working on homework, essays and spreadsheets that "I don't have permission to save to this location" (One Drive). I am the only user, and of course the administrator.

    I usually end up saving my file to the desktop (if I'm lucky) and then I have to open One Drives folder and change the permissions to allow the home users full access (this changes back periodically) or I have to set the attributes of the files/folders…

  4. Back up as opposed SYNC

    At present the user has no flexibility to back up folders from pc to one drive without ALSO sync files from online to pc. The user needs to option to BACK UP files and NOT SYNC files both ways. The system as designed is very rigid and inflexible.

  6. faster info on available space on SkyDriver or OneDrive

    I don't use the OneDrive much because I can not click properties as I do on a storage drive and get available space. I have had too many notes telling me I have so many gigs added because of something I've done. Windows 10 is so slow that by the time I can figure out if there is space, I have gotten out a thumb drive or plugged in an external. I have been trying for an hour to find a straight answer to the question that updates to something started and now once again my computer is useless. The…

  7. Allow to sync shorcuts or not

    Simply just allow to right click and toggle sync shortcut or not, while seems very simple we must add this feature just the sake of broken icons in other computers.
    For myself I find this very annoying.

  9. Can't access One Drive

    Hi, I have a problem to access One Drive. It said that "Your sign-in was successful but does not meet the criteria to access this resource.
    You should specific to user that which are the criteria, why let user guess by themselves for what happened? It waste time to try to access it to do my urgent task. It should provide better suggestion to support user.
    Thanks.
    Thanks.

  16. Option to have a delay on syncing files that were updated many times

    When applications are frequently updating and releasing the same set of files, OneDrive struggles to keep up. I suggest having an adjustable option for setting a buffer for these types of things. For example, if OneDrive tries to update the same file multiple times within a minute, allow a buffer of say 5 minutes to prevent OneDrive from trying to sync every change made to that file. This would prevent high CPU usage and battery drain while frequently changing the same files.

    Thank you for your time and consideration! :)

    JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE: (not more explanation)

    Using Intellij, OneDrive goes…

  18. Onedrive .webm thumbnails

    When using Files On-Demand, the windows explorer wont generate thumbnails for .webm files (the rest works fine). Is there a chance we could see this added/fixed?
