  2. Improve Backup Help

    I don't use OneDrive's Backup, because Backup seems to duplicate the basic functionality of OneDrive. It's unclear how "Backup" is DIFFERENT from OneDrive. It's unclear if Backup offers ADDITIONAL 5GB, over and above OneDrive 5GB, or if it's the SAME 5GB.

    Your Backup forum linked from Help Doc is shutdown. Why? That make this problem worse.

  6. I have been trying for months to get onedrive to upload files on my PC with no succes

    I have read troubleshooting tips and have tried many things, but only 76GB of my 1000GB allowance will upload. Sync just doesn't work. and hasn't. I have had no problem with other apps, but am frustrated that OneNote is such a pain. It's like I can't use it and can't get rid of it.

    Backing up to the cloud should never be the default behaviour as it amounts to sharing information with strangers that is potentially personal, private or sensitive. GDPR regs should be observed to avoid hefty fines.

  11. I would like to be able to turn off the Onedrive function. I don't like that it's always on in the background. Will this be possible in the

    I think that Onedrive should be optional. Not everyone uses their personal computers for business or school purposes.

  12. I have no idea what Onedrive is and why it is on my computer.

    Blow Onedrive out of your *** and send it to see Nancy Pelosi.

  13. Allow editing of word documents on line so the entire page can be scene.

    Having to switch to Reading Mode to see what the document actually looks like is cumbersome. If it is not possible to do this at least allow saving to one drive and PC.

  17. prioritize document to open from OneDrive to MS Office app during OneDrive synchronization

    I having issues opening documents(docx,xlsx,pptx) from OneDrive storage to Office desktop app while the OneDrive itself is very busy doing synchronization. That is it takes more time to download the document even it is a smaller files. I would suggest to pause synchronization while the Office app is trying to open the prioritize documents then resume synchronization when the documents were successfully open in Office app
