  1. remove warning: inode_val: object : invalid bsd flags

    Hello,I have found a bug on onedrive for mac. I use Mojave and APFS. I reproduced the issue with the volume encrypted and also without encryption (Filevault). The bug is the following, the folder gives a warning in DiskUtil with the following format:
    warning: inode_val: object (oid 0x417de2): invalid bsd_flags (0x10)
    I have verified is the onedrive folder using the following command from mac terminal:
    find / -inum 4292066

    where 4292066 is 417de2 in decimal

  4. auto save

    Bring the Auto Save feature from Windows 10 to the macOS client, so we can sync the Desktop and Documents folders:

  5. 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…

  6. Online-only support for Mac OS X

    Hello! I really like the online-only feature that OneDrive has for Windows, and I'm sad that the same feature isn't available for Mac. The files I have are eating up space on my hard drive, and using selective sync doesn't cut it (the large size of my OneDrive is due to images and .PSD documents which I open in bulk for image editing, and are a hassle to download from the website every time I simply want to use them.)

    I'd really appreciate it if this feature were implemented, since I'm running low on space! If not, I'm probably going…

  8. CPU usage too high on Mac.

    The CPU usage is too on Mac computers. CPU usage on MacBook Pro is too high. CPU usage is at 20% all the time and the fan is running constantly. One Drive drains the Battery in one hour. If I close the app everything is fine.

  9. 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)…

  11. 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.

  14. File name restrictions

    The file name restrictions are still in place. There shouldn't be any special character, symbol, space before or after file. It is very disappointing especially when you are uploading hundreds of GBs and with 460 file name errors. That makes you stop the whole process. Please allow any type of file names like dropbox/google drive etc.

    Thank you.

  16. Multiple Login Items

    Just checked Login Items in System Preferences and there were eight copies of OneDrive in the list of apps to start? I have removed it in the past and reinstalled, looks like its just added and added new versions.

  17. Mac 上で作成したエイリアスを OneDrive 上でも使用可能にしてほしい。Please make alias created on Mac available on OneDrive.

    -English is below-

    二つのフォルダーにそれぞれ元ファイルとエイリアスを置いて使用しているが、該当フォルダーを同期すると、OneDrive for Business 上でエイリアスが認識されず使用できない。

    さらにもう一台の Mac を同期しており、そちらでは該当のエイリアスが "UNIX 実行ファイル" と認識されてしまう。

    業務上使用するうえで、エイリアスが使えないのは大変不便なので、動作改善を希望します。
    よろしくお願いします。

    I use an original file and an alias in two folders, but when I synchronize the folders, an alias is not recognized on OneDrive for Business and can not be used.

    Furthermore, another Mac is synchronized, and the corresponding alias is recognized as "UNIX executable file" there.

    It is very inconvenient that I can not use alias for business use, so we hope to improve the behavior.
    Thank you.

  18. Decrease OneDrive Mac resource usage

    OneDrive for Mac uses considerable CPU, even when there is nothing to sync. It regularly uses 100% CPU and runs batteries down 5x faster than normal, draining a MacBook batter in under 2 hours that get 8+ hours without OneDrive running. This happens to me on 3 different MacBook Pros. This is in all recent versions, but seems worse in clients supporting selective files on-demand. I truly enjoy OneDrive, but this issues is making it unusable.

  20. Sync errors shouldn't stop other files from syncing

    If a file is unable to sync due to an unsupported character in the name or some other error, it shouldn't cause all my other files from syncing. Syncing should continue with all files except those with the error.
