  4. Support for MacOS 10.15 - Catalina

    Due to Apple's new privacy and security measures in the Mac OS file system in their upcoming version 10.15 Catalina. OneDrive can no longer function properly due to no longer having full access the the drive despite enabling full disk access in System Preferences. OneDrive will not be able to locate the main folder due to the 10.15 now having two separate volumes by default. One is for the MacOS system files and the other is your data drive. I'm not sure what other problems are causing OneDrive to not work but I hope it is fixed before 10.15 is…

  7. Dark OneDrive file folder to match System folders on Mojave and up..

    While OneDrive now supports dark mode in the menu UI, the OneDrive finder folder itself doesn't darken when other system folders do -

    The custom cloud icon folder requires special tagging from Apple to be dynamically darkened as part of enabling Dark mode, otherwise the folder sticks out as bright blue amongst a sea of dark blue folders when Dark Mode is enabled. This is visible and an aesthetics issue in Finder, Dock/Stacks etc. Please work with Apple to correct. OneDrive is a core part of my productivity kit and needs to match my OS!

  9. Selective Sync on Mac needs to continue even if it cannot sync a particular file (.DS_Store file was culprit).

    I installed the new version of OneDrive for Business (MacOS), with selective sync.
    Whenever it got to a ".DS_Store" file, though, it would get "hung up", and would stop syncing. I contacted MS Tech Support and was directed to an article which appeared to be helpful in that it clearly addressed the issue I was experiencing, and eventually was able to get the Mac to complete the sync by deleting the .DS_Store files (which was a bit of a challenge, but I figured it out).

    The issue is not just that the Mac won’t sync the “.ds_store” files, but that…

  11. OneDrive not working on macOS Catalina

    Since Apple introduced macOS 10.15 Catalina, OneDrive Mac app stopped working. It could be a privacy issue, because the app doesn't found OneDrive folder on Mac.

  12. Simple, but important.

    Hi, after clicking on the onedrive icon, pop up a menu with a list of recently synchronized files. Each of files has menu, and here is one very important function to add - "open in finder". Now you can only open file, share or view online.

  14. Corregir los caracteres con tilde o ñ

    En la versión para MAC, el texto sale con signos cuando se usa caracteres como la ñ o tildes. Eso hace que incomode a la vista.

  15. macOS app is downloading from OneDrive Files on Demand

    OneDrive on macOS with Files on Demand enabled notifies when other apps or services attempt to download from OneDrive.
    OneDrive should not be notifying and blocking native macOS services
    Company administrators should be able to manage a whitelist and blacklist of apps and services allowed or denied from downloading from OneDrive

  16. Will not stay signed in

    I have multiple Office 365 accounts between personal, school, work, and another job. Every time my computer wakes I have to sign back in nearly every time. I can't even use it.

  17. Fix the memory leak in the macOS OneDrive client!

    There has been a serious memory leak in the OneDrive client for macOS for over a year. There are multiple posts on the OneDrive support forum about this, and I've made multiple support requests all of which have come to naught.

    The symptoms are quite simple - on machines running Sierra and High Sierra the OneDrive client's memory foot print grows without ceasing over time, eventually causing the host machine to run out of memory. See attached image for memory footprint on a High Sierra running MacPro after 7 hours 39 minutes from a cold boot ,with OneDrive (latest version)…

    We have been working on several memory leak fixes recently. One of the main ones was fixed with Standalone version 19.086.0502.0008 and Store version 19.103.0527.0003. If you are not on one of those builds or higher, please update first. If you are still experiencing issues after updating, let us know. We will continue to focus on performance improvements, including memory utilization.

  18. The sync of pdf files with highlights added stuck

    The uploading is always being stuck at 126.9 KB. Should make the sync of commented pdf files as fast as the sync of word files.

  19. Remove the unbelievably confusing OneDrive personal / OneDrive for business dilemma when using Office365 and combine into a simple solution

    Whenever I try to sync using OneDrive I get this really confusing thing that shows me two different OneDrive accounts, which makes little sense to me. It would be great if these could be combined into a neat single solution with clear areas for personal and business.

  20. Allow .oneondriveignore file in the root of a folder similar to git

    I would like to ignore certain folder patterns in a `Projects` folder I would like to sync with OneDrive. Allowing the use of a customizable text file to sit in the root of the OneDrive sync folder would allow me to create a match pattern to ignore particular folders and files similar to .gitignore file permit.

    Example:

    .onedriveignore
    -----------------
    photography/*/RAW
    photography/*/edits

    --------------------

    This would ignore all photos in `RAW` and `edits` and only sync the customer finals. However, for another project, the customer may want to pay for access to different files and thus would need to alter the ignore…
