  1. Please, please, please: Allow me to hide date and size under folder names

    This is for the web version and the iOS version. I put my photos in folders. I label each folder by year. I might have created the "1995" folder in 2011. Why do I need to see the date I created the folder when I have a better, more accurate name for the folder? I don't care about the file size. All I want is the folder name. Some people may find this useful. How about making this configurable?

  6. configure the maximum amount of the processor that the program can use.

    configure the maximum amount of the processor that the program can use. I currently have more than 250G that are synchronized in one unit. The problem is that the program has reached 73% of the processor. the computer slows down, so I have to pause the synchronizatio

  7. 15gb file limit - autotranscoding

    onedrive 15gb file size limit affects mainly old video files, MOV etc

    if onedrive detects a file larger than 15gb it should look to convert the file(s) to a more modern standard, in this case MP4

    the permissions to convert files on the fly would be given by the user/default

  8. Problem with OneDrive and PowerPoint

    I upgraded to Office 365 and started using OneDrive about two months ago and since that time I am having a problem creating videos in PowerPoint. If I start creating a video in PowerPoint and open another PowerPoint file at the same time, the original PowerPoint file "forgets" where it was storing the video to and prompts me to re-enter the storage location. This problem has only happened since I started using OneDrive. I'm not sure if this is a OneDrive problem or a PowerPoint problem.

    Here are the steps to reproduce the problem:

    In Microsoft PowerPoint initiate an export…

  10. Sync Broken

    Opened Excel file stored on my hard drive's OneDrive folder and noticed it was not the latest version. Opened a backup of same file on my network drive, did my work on it, saved it. Then tried to copy over the latest network drive version of Excel file to OneDrive folder. It won't copy (replace) over the OneDrive file! Had to delete the OneDrive file, then copy over to it! OneDrive is not working correctly!!!

  13. incorporate the option to turn off the computer when you are done updating onedrive files

    Just as you do when there are pending software updates, it would be great to incorporate the option to turn off the computer when you are done updating onedrive and sharepoint files.

  14. 5GB in today's world is unrealistic. Burned through it in no time. GDrive will be my go to now w/15GB

    Since my OneDrive has dropped to 5 GB, it is virtually unusable. Backing up my pics to my new laptop and it started blowing warnings at me left and right. Annoying. No clear way to specify a folder to NOT sync...ever. just a time frame. Useless. I will be going to Google Drive as they offer 15GB. 5GB is virtually nothing in this day and age.

  17. Onedrive Windows 10 app is duplicating files and appending "-copy" to the end of file. There should be an option to not create duplicates.

    Do not allow or have option to deny duplicate files. This is especially important when multiple computers share one account.

  19. Corrupted File in OneDrive (PowerPoint)

    One of my PowerPoint files located in my OneDrive became corrupted after my computer had the BSOD error. After restarting the computer, I tried to access the file and I received an error. When clicking on the Repair button, I received another error saying that the file couldn't be opened. I need help recovering that file, as I am still unable to access it. This has happened before, where I am working on a file and the computer goes BSOD and then the file becomes corrupted and cannot be opened. I need this fixed please.

  20. Provide the ability of add an existing online OndDrive folder to be added to the PC's OneDrive folder in Windows 10

    I need a simple mechanism to add one or more folders which exist in my online OneDrive account to be added to the list of folders which are synched under the OneDrive folder on my laptop which is running Windows 10. The content in each added folder would, of course, be synchronized over all devices.
