  1. Leave me be

    I appreciate letting me know that my one drive is almost full, i really, do, but telling me 30 times a day constantly popping up every time I open my laptop telling me to buy more storage is ridiculous. I can not figure out how to stop these pop ups but the fact of the matter is that it should not be happening in the first place. Let me enjoy my Windows laptop and not send all these pop ups my way just so you can try to make that extra dollar.

  2. SPEED PROFILE

    Often i set speed limit to 1kb for uploading download,because we usally like to save file immidately , so i set speed for 1 kb ,so that only latest file could get upload in case i change it again after opening, Now somtimes when things are browser related i need again immidate speed to upload download button , either it would be greet to have diffrent speed profile near pause sync button, or just a bbutton for no network limit until on

  3. poner nueva opcion en el menu

    no todos tienen una conexion de alta velocidad
    asi que sugiero poner en el menu la opcion de elegir el maximo numero de archivos que se suben de forma simultanea

    es necesario para liberar la tensión de la red y agilizar el proceso

    por ejemplo hoy puse en mi nube 10 vídeos y en lugar de subirlo uno por uno intento subir los 10 al mismo tiempo se paso toda la noche y no subió nada congestiono mi servicio de red

  4. 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!

  6. Bring back Video Thumbnails!!!

    Not only have you removed video thumbnails for files on demand, but even files that are kept on local drives no longer show thumbnails if they’re in the OneDrive folder. That’s ridiculous, and a huge productivity problem for video editors!! BRING BACK VIDEO THUMBNAILS.

  7. 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

  10. 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....

  11. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.
