  1. Managing Security For Onedrive on different computer

    Dear One Drive Team,
    I find it is really convenience to have Onedrive installed on multiple computer. However, I would like to block access to my Onedrive on other computer. For example, I have one Laptop and a public Desktop. I would like to sync my datas on both computers. While the public computer keeps syncing, it is impossible for other to access it except myself. Do we have or develop some kind of function like this?

    Thank you,
    THINH

  3. under settings allow me to determine which folders are cloud vs local.

    Open the onedrive app, settings, choose folders. Instead of only downloading the folder allow the ability to cloud sync only in addition to download.

  4. Sugestão

    Olá. O OneDrive para Windows deveria permitir a escolha das pastas que quero sincronizar. Teria que ter uma opção para eu navegar no computdor, navegar nas pastas e subpastas para eu conseguir ir selecionando as pastas que quero sincronizar. Além de permitir que eu escolha uma pasta compartilhada na rede como \\192.168.0.1\compartilhamento. Dou esta sugestão porque o Google Drive para computador oferece este recurso e eu acho super interessante.

  6. A BACKUP ONLY

    A BACKUP ONLY feature so it does not mess up all MS Office file links and keeps files on my computer that I am working on. I have followed all the manage directions and it messes of the file links in MS Access, MS Word, MS Excel, EveryDay jigsaw and everything else. I have spent hours trying to find what links it has destroyed.

  7. There is a sync issue in OneDrive

    When there is a sync issue, I see the message "There is a sync issue in OneDrive"
    Below this it says "Click here to learn more about the issue and how to resolve it". When I "click here", I get a list of the problem files but only rarely is there any information on what the issue is or how to resolve it.

  9. Do not start OwnCloud

    Do not start Owncloud when I simply told it not to start on startup. This is a sign that I do not want to use it. So do not try to force me to use it.

  12. Deleting Folders with "Rights" problem on own PC

    Yesterday (17th October) while trying to solve why my "PC version" of One Drive showed 3 Files that I could not "Delete" because I had insufficient "Rights" as an Administrative "User", I considered the advice I had obtained from Vijay Verma on the "One Drive" support team, to refer the matter to Windows Technical team, and it struck me that the problem was in fact due to the way that Microsoft had configured the access to One Drive.
    I thus decided, that as I had a copy of the installation downloaded for One Drive still in my "downloads folder", that…

  13. Renaming SharePoint Site, Library & Folder does not reflect either on one drive or network folder

    Hi,

    We are using SharePoint online for all our users in our firm and we have noticed that after renaming our site, library or a folder sometime after creating it does not reflect either on OneDrive nor on mapped drives.

    File sync works fine but the name change does not appear everywhere.
    Also, the URL appears with the old name only.

  14. Programming notes - unable to display code on phone

    I have programming notes in the form of html files. On a PC I can "open with" and choose an editor. Or I can view source code from within the browser. On the Windows phone I am landlocked. I can't view the code. Its only path is to the browser and on the windows phone browser version I cannot "view source code." Sure I can rename the code .txt but then I will need a duplicate for each file, an html file for the browser and txt for the phone. Is it possible to view the code from onedrive and…

  15. Default to protected not open edit access on files

    I learned the hard way that others could edit documents that I had saved. When I emailed they edited them and I was never able to retrieve the original. I was flabbergasted that open edit was the default!

  16. Allow Connected Services in Outlook to be disabled.

    We have found intermittent contact search issues, using the 'Search People' section under in the To-Do pane in Outlook. This is due to the Connected Services under Office Account, e.g. SharePoint/OneDrive. Sometimes a search will display the local Outlook contact. Sometimes it will show a contact from SharePoint (with limited information). The flexibility to disable Connected Services in Outlook, or prioritise local Outlook contacts, would be appreciated by some users.

  17. support editing xlsx and xlsm files with partialy protected cells

    currently it is not possible to edit and safe excel files with protected cells while the file is in ondrive.
    current workaround is : copy file to desktop, change , safe, copy back.

    it would be nice to apply the change directly while the file is in onedrive

  20. Facility for locking the OneDrive folded shall be provided through mobile authenticator app.

    Facility for locking and unlocking the OneDrive folded shall be provided through mobile authenticator app.
    Some times it required to give access to my window PC to my friends and for this I required this facility so that no one can access my files in OneDrive folder.
