  1. enable a setting to let user set when OneDrive to start/stop syncup

    when onedrive is working, the PC is slow, need to have setting to let it enable/disable syncup.
    for example, from 20:00PM to start sync and at 8:00AM to stop sync. then the PC performance will not be impacted in working time.

  5. Make one drive work for Windows 8 again. I spent a month dealing with customer service to get no where.

    Make one drive work for Windows 8. I'll be cancelling my service because it doesn't work. I spent a month dealing with customer service and got no where. I don't have the time to sit by my computer, on a phone for hours on end, for weeks. I freelance and run a business, I don't have time for that. My entire team runs Windows 8 for their travel workstations, as do I. We can't share our updated work with each other because your system doesn't work. You removed it from the windows store which windows 8 uses for one drive.…

  6. How Can I Get My Diploma When My School Dismissed Me?

    Studying abroad is not easy. I think it is the consensus that most overseas students have. In a strange country and strange environment, students have to adapt to the unfamiliar language and environment. It is not easy for students overseas. Studying abroad is bitter, but paying tuition fees is more bitter. But the most bitter thing is to fail to get the diploma when they graduate.So studying abroad bitter, but it is nothing compared with failing to get the diploma.

  9. Stop Sharing Link through System rather than Web Browser

    Files/Folders on system can be shared via OneDrive software on the PC by creating a shareable link. This option is available on my system via a right-click.
    However, when we have to stop sharing the link, we need to access OneDrive via Web Browser. 
    It would be great if we can add the option for stop sharing/deleting the shared link directly from the system without going to the Browser.
    I am aware of setting an expiration date on shareable links. However, this would help in the links which are already shared without expiration dates but are no longer required to…

  10. Allow link sharing for files that needs users to ask for permissions

    We should be able to generate link for a file that we can share with public but anyone trying to access that link will need to send mail to onwer for permission. They will be required to login through onedrive or get a customized link. This will allow me to share private datasets with intended recipients when doing job searches. I can publish to world that I have shared something just like any email host page. Anyone can access home page of outlook.com but they will need to provide user id and password to go further. Same way, link is…

  11. Get the Personal user GUI Reliability and Useability matching the Business users

    As a personal Onedrive user on the home machine I would like to have confidence that a drag'n drop upload will run - including empty files and folders ( where the name is a placeholder ), and that failures can be dealt with - as in I can see the filenames in a list rather than having them as a sidebar in the no-longer updating browser panel.
    May not matter so much if I could see a list of files that are on the Onedrive folders - rather than just those the browser noticed as I paged down.
    Basically that…

  12. I would like to be able to have 2 Windows accounts each sync 1 OneDrive account

    I have a Surface running the slow ring insider Fall Creators Update. There are 2 Windows users on the Surface. One is successfully using OneDrive. When the other user logs in, they are told that there is no account connected, but when they try to add an account, they are told that they must unlink the existing account first. Are 2 Windows users each supposed to be able to independently sync 1 OneDrive personal account?

  14. Syncing any folder from PC to Onedrive

    I cannot sync a folder other than Desktop, Documents or Images.
    This folder is in a second drive, D, and there I have photos for editing and share. And I would like to have them available to edit them from phone or tablet/iPad

  18. There are no options for stop syncing in OneDrive now it kept adding folders to my desktop and is really annoying!!!

    There are no options to stop syncing files, there are only options for pause syncing and One Drive is adding screenshots to File Explorer and taking up my disk space.

  20. Auto OCR all files in OneDrive

    Dropbox has this! They made all files searchable by the keywords inside it, regardless of file name or location, even if they've been saved only as image files.
