  2. Change on The System

    I have just set up onedrive in another device and, you know, I've chose to backup
    - desktop
    - document
    - pictures
    But some moments after that I realize this was not a good idea, and decided to STOP backing up this files. So I set them to NOT back up and deleted them from my onedrive.
    Can you guess? this thing deleted the files from my desktop locally and everything else(pictures and documents).
    What in did you eat, that makes you get confused between an ORIGINAL files and a BACKUP file?
    Who in
    gave you permission to delete MY…

  4. different icon for multiple accounts

    I have a personal and 2 Office 365 Accounts. I love the white icon for personal and blue icon for the School / Work Account, but I don't know which one is which until I've hovered over it.
    Is there any chance, like with the Office icons, you can add a little circle with the initials of the account in them, or a little picture? Just something to distinguish between the different accounts?

  7. Share one notification icon for all instances of OneDrive

    I have multiple personal and business/school OneDrive accounts. Each of them is represented by its own notification icon on the taskbar. I'd like a setting that collapses them all into a SINGLE icon for OneDrive.

  8. Allow extending the storage maximum beyond 1TB. It's too hard to access 1TB chunks in the other family accounts.

    Simplify the consolidation and use of the Microsoft Office family allocations of 6 x 1TB, and allow purchase of online storage beyond that.

  11. one drive setup auto-backup feature is deceptive and terrible

    setup procedure that automatically uploads documents from desktop, documents, and photo folders should require a positive user decision to turn it on after it has been described well what the user is signing up for. Turning on autosave for office products automatically is also terrible and could lead to upload of sensitive documents and photos that are not approved for cloud storage

  13. OneDrive adatok nem csak rendszer lemezen

    Úgy vélem ezzel problémával nem csak én szembesültem. Sokunknak lehet úgy, hogy a PC-jükben vagy notebookjukban két meghajtó van. Egy SSD a rendszernek és egy jóval nagyobb kapacitású HDD. Szerencsés lenne, ha ki lehetne választani, hogy a OneDrive melyik lemezen legyen. Ennek különösen akkor lenne nagy haszna, ha valaki biztonsági okok miatt minden fájl szeretne tárolni, nem csak a felhőben és mondjuk, egy 1T-s előfizetése van.

  14. 원드라이브 동기화를 일정시간 동안 중단시키는 기능이 있는데, 반대로 일정시간 동안만 동기화를 유지하고 그 시간이 지나면 동기화를 자동으로 멈추게 하는 기능이 있으면 좋을 것 같습니다.

    원드라이브 동기화를 일정시간 동안 중단시키는 기능이 있는데, 반대로 일정시간 동안만 동기화를 유지하고 그 시간이 지나면 동기화를 자동으로 멈추게 하는 기능이 있으면 좋을 것 같습니다.
    간단하게 말하자면 동기화 중지 예약 기능 같은 것입니다. 사용자가 원하는 시간에만 동기화 기능을 켜고 그 외의 시간에는 동기화 기능을 꺼놓음으로써 배터리를 절약할 수 있을 것 같습니다.

  15. Bestand streamen

    Het zou mooi zijn als je bijvoorbeeld een mxf bestand welke in de cloud staat kan staat kan streamen vanaf de desktop app. Nu moet hij eerst helemaal worden gedownload voordat vlc hem bijvoorbeeld kan openen.

  17. Shared onedrive folder name should remain the same when synchronised

    When I share a Onedrive folder with user B within my company and user B then chooses to synchronise this folder to his/her PC, my full account name is automatically added to the folder name as it appears in Windows Explorer. This creates unclarity, the folder name on user B's PC should remain exactly the same. Problem recreated in added screenshot.

  20. acces code to menu configuration in OneDrive (windows, mac)

    Dear colleagues of Onedrive,

    I want to propose the following feature for OneDrive version PC (windows, MAC). It is as simple as putting an access code to access the One Drive PC configuration menu (same as on the mobile platform).

    For example, I have my Outlook account on two computers, one is the home computer and the other is the computer at work. My OneDrive has synchronized information on my home computer and other information corresponding to work is synchronized on my work computer.

    The problem is that at work another employee can go and use my (the company) computer…
