  1. OneDrive Usage and simplified use of storage

    There are three of us using my Microsoft Family account. However, I need the remaining OneDrive Storage added to my account rather than adding additional emails.

  2. Remove Duplicates Photos from laptop and cloud

    I continually get duplicates from various sources (I'm not sure where, maybe old camera uploads, storage on icloud from belore, etc.

    I'm trying to use OneDrive as my one and only cloud storage. However, I've spent hours deleting duplicates from OneDrive only to have them reappear later.

    Request an app that will scan both the drive and cloud and remove duplicates.

  5. When we disable oneDrive make it so it does not auto start again in the task bar.

    When I disable OneDrive it restarts at some point in the task bar and slows my computer down. I do not use it at all. Everything I save, is saved to an external hard drive so I do not need OneDrive nor do I even want it on my computer. Let us remove it and make it so we do not have to have it.

  6. Allow us to upload new files while keeping the same shared link

    Whenever I make changes to an image or file and upload the new file to One Drive, I have to get a new shared link. Other file sharing services (Box, Google Drive, etc.) allow me to manage versions so I can keep the same shared link. I would really like a way to do this in One Drive so those who have the old shared link don't get messed up. Thanks!

  7. Please don't reset my Save settings with Updates

    Updated Windows this week, and now my Office files AutoSave on open, destroying the info of their prior save date needed to find proper files. Needed to go to OneDrive settings and turn off "sync Office files on Open option under Office tab. Took two hours and chat with two MS Support staffers to fix this. Like being caught in a drive-by shooting.

  10. how about you unistal 1 drives from everyones computer. That way I won't have to disable it on every new computer.

    1 Drive program is trashy. It's really annoying. And doesn't need to be installed with windows. Ever.

  11. Right click menu integration

    I want OneDrive to be integrated into folder right click menu so that i can choose to upload and use the file online directly without having to copy the file to Onedrive folder and choose to have it available online, it's a waste of time. Thanks.

  13. Set an entire folder as available as locally available

    Currently the recommended way to set an online-only file as locally available is to open it and have it downloaded to the PC storage. It is cumbersome to open files individually to achieve this especially with a large number of files. We need to add an option to download a whole folder without making them "Always available on device".

  14. Qué debo hacer para volver a montar OneDrive?

    Tuve que desmontar OneDrive por problemas con mi computador y ahora al tratar de montarlo me informa que ya está instalado. He seguido todas las instrucciones que hay en red para desinstalarlo y volverlo a instalar pero ninguna funciona

  15. documents / desktop

    i have a great idea, how about you guys let people exclude documents folders and the desktop from onedrive. im just trying to have access to my work stuff, not upload all of my personal on one drive. even if i click on the folders ot exclude them it still puts them on one drive with a red x next to it saying theres an issue with the sync. as as im concerned this product is total garbage. FIX IT! theres even a reddit forum about this simple issue. get your heads out of your *****.

  16. Start up settings: merge or copy files with same name.

    Upon installation of One Drive prompt user to select either: merge or copy, files with same name. Just prompt user review settings before One Drive jumps into action.

    So sad that because both computers shared many files with same name, copies were made of every file and relabeled "copy" And now it will take many hours to delete every one, one by one.
    Note category above is not intended to be "files on demand" but no other option.

  17. Having an MS Word file open should not give a sync error

    (Note: I have disabled Office sync in OneDrive and have Office autosave off)
    .
    When I have a Word file open in a OneDrive folder,
    OneDrive will report a sync error and try to resync every 60 seconds.
    I have a lot of files on OneDrive (40 K +) so every sync cycle takes a few seconds, and causes the cooling fans of my PC to power up.
    So this happens every 60 seconds (!). To prevent this, I have pause OneDrive at the start of each working day and re-enable it when I'm done.
    .
    Desired behavior:
    Don't treat…

  18. Batch list of email addresses in Sharing

    Please add feature of "batch add a list of email addresses". Presently, have to input individual email address when sharing. And, have to approve each email address.

    It will be good to just share a link without asking for approval.

    Thank you.

  19. Maximum file size uploading to OneDrive

    Most of the on-line storage places have space for all sorts of data. OneDrive has a limit of 100Mb per File. Why? How about home movies which are much longer in may cases. a folder of these just cannot be on OneDrive,
    If one pays for more space on OneDrive why the 100MB upload limit per file?
    I recommend you allow a limit of 1.0TB per file. We no longer live in the world where 16K of RAM might never be exceeded.
    Thanks

  20. Enable multiple simultaneous connections / multiple concurrent connections to OneDrive

    By design OneDrive doesn't support multiple simultaneous connections / multiple concurrent connections. When using Citrix Virtual Apps with OneDrive folder redirection enabled on RDSH hosts this is a must.
