  1. Allow OneDrive sync folder to be located on a mapped drive

    We heavily use RDS at the moment, a user will have a homes drive mapped with all their MyDocs folder redirected to this. I want to migrate away from using RDS and legacy HW for the homes drive but to support this I need to locate their OneDrive folder on their homes drive and then configure auto migration. This ensures that the local drive (C:) of the RDS servers (we have over 150) are not filled up during the users migration. It also means that when the user is in RDS their files remain in sync until such a time…

  2. Ability to select option to shut down device when all files have been synchronised

    As currently majority of internet service providers have much slower upload speeds, synch takes hours especially for videos, so ideally device left to synch overnight but currently unlike all other apps there is NO option in settings to allow Onedrive to automatically shut down the device once all synch ic completed.

  4. Please solve the "CPU at 100% load" issue

    Make OneDrive with a lower task priority per default. And provide an option to clear the cache in the GUI.

  6. Option to sync a particular folder on priority.

    The OneDrive app (in windows) automatically syncs the folders in the background.
    If we can prioritize a particular folder and its contents to be synced on top priority, it will great.

    Thanks

  7. Backout for KFM not available

    The Known Folder Redirection feature works good,but there is no way to automatically backout the KFM setting through group policy. Manual intervention is required for the same,which is not a good end user experience as we will have exceptions and users who will need to opt off of KFM and want their confidential files to not roam with them to shared/different devices.

  8. Onedrive needs to allow exceptions for the Sync TO Onedrive Cloud

    Onedrive needs to allow upload exceptions for specific files/folders. Many applications store information in the user's Documents folder by default.

    In some cases, this behavior cannot be modified within the application and the files cannot be moved or renamed to Onedrive standards.

    For files that cannot be renamed or moved, the user is faced with constant sync errors in the notification tray.

    This also leads to unwanted consumption of Onedrive Cloud storage. Users should have the simple option to choose which files or folders are backed up. They should also be allowed to use wildcards like .dat, .cfg, etc as…

  15. Clearing of the backup history

    As per my knowledge you should add a feature that enables the user to clear the history of his/her backup data so that it can prevent the leaking of the data if anyone uses the user's computer apart from the owner of the computer.

  16. User friendlyness

    Ya'll are wanting to make money? I have to ask because it isn't apparent. I suggest you ask for volunteers over 50 to see if they can use your apps. I have been using Google One but I AGAIN am going to try & enjoy my laptop & bought Office 365 & set out to use OneDrive & I can't find "back up my computer, I don't want to go to folders & choose. I had a secretary because I am no good with files & such. How do I move my saved or stored "stuff" to OneDrive? I don't…

  17. Make it stop downloading everything when I want to look at one item. I can't use it too confusing

    The software is not at all intuitive. It starts downloading multiple items when you view an image you can't see instantly what's backed up and what isn't. If I update a file I don't know if it's going to update the download or the one drive version. Useless i have to keep external drives as well as I have no confidence that if I delete from PC it won't delete the back up on one drive.

  20. Change name of sync client

    The desktop sync client have the same name as an individual user's private file storage is causing so much confusion. Its a huge unlock to be able to sync one's sharepoint libraries but no one "gets it" because they think the onedrive sync client IS onedrive. SUPER CONFUSING.
