  1. OneDrive Virus

    It would be greatly appreciated if this virus “OneDrive” was only included in windows on request, it is along with so many other useless frustrating features a stressful pain in the neck!

  3. MAKE THE SIGN IN EXPIRATION FOR ONE DRIVE MORE OBVIOUS

    Currently OneDrive sign in expires with NO notice, NO visible icons, nothing. I need to check if the AutoSave button has turned on OFF to make sure it is signed in.
    Just prompt a sign-in request automatically as soon as the old one expires, like you do for Outlook

  5. Stop spamming about OneDrive for a phone in Windows Explorer

    Multiple times I have opened Windows Explorer it has had a banner telling me that I can use OneDrive on a phone.

    I have acknowledge the banner clicking on its X. I have attempted the selection of the other buttons to see if that will stop.

    I did not find any settings in OneDrive application to disable. I am not sure if Windows Settings has an option to control this banner.

    I actually do use OneDrive on my phone....

  6. Reset the sync due to weak connection

    Sometimes OneDrive freezes the sync due to a weak Internet connection (for instance 0.2 Mbit/s) and can't restart the sync again. Will be good if the software can detect that the sync stopped and restart the connection automatically after each 5-10 min. Right now, I am doing this manually: each 15-20 min the software stop the sync and I have to make Pause and Resume.

  10. Change the icon when Onedrive tries to connect

    When OneDrive tries to connect, the icon appears white with a loading sign on the side. But usually a white cloud means that Onedrive is connected. So you would have to put a grey cloud with a loading icon when Onedrive tries to connect. It would be more understandable.

  12. STOP F****ING STEALING FOCUS WHEN I TAKE SCREENSHOTS IN VIDEOGAMES

    I'm playing a game. I want to continue playing the game. I take a screenshot. OneDrive (and now Dropbox) "helpfully" steal the focus to show some stupid dialog asking if I want to save it. Well, when you ask that way... NO, NEVER.

  14. Certain File Sync

    As of today, OneDrive syncs every file on your computer to OneDrive. It would be nice if you can make certain files NOT sync to OneDrive to not fill up all the space on OneDrive. I think this would be an awesome feature, so please add this!

  15. Two computers/One Account

    I have a personal laptop and a business one. They do not share files. The problem is that standard Windows folders such as Documents, Pictures, Desktop, etc. on the two laptops can't be saved separately, unless I rename those folders one one of the laptops. I haven't tried that, but I'll bet the operating system would have problems with that.

  17. Lock the developers of Personal Vault into it and lose the key


    1. Question: if the vault provides security - are you saying that the rest of OneDrive stored info in insecure?


    2. Nobody asked if I wanted it or needed it. What I did need was security of my family's personal files stored on my OneDrive in the folder (obviously inappropriately) called Personal. Said folder has now disappeared taking all data stored with it. But I do have the Personal Vault now. With nothing in it. Fantastic. Many thanks. Much appreciated.

  18. Global Tags and Color labelling of files and folders

    It's a huge leap of faith, but I think it's high time Microsoft sets again some universal standards. Given the diversity of devices and platforms, OneDrive could appeal to a wider audience by reflecting on techniques used by other cloud providers when processing tags and labels from other OS. Until now, there has been a trade-off when implementing solutions for displaying own and other's features. But competition not always benefits the consumers. Sooner or later, one system will pravail over others. MS could straighaway bridge the differences between xattrs and altstream and so on, and by doing so, simplify the…

  19. If I can view my pictures on OneDrive in a slideshow, why can't I play my music files stored on OneDrive the same way?

    I've stored all of my music files on OneDrive but I can't play them continuously. I want a "slideshow"-style ability for my music. Now, I have to select Next if I want to play the next song.
