    • File naming error and solution

      If file is not uploading due to error in the name, the exact error in the naming should be highlighted and instant alternate name solution should be provided or automatically named (with a specific colour dot in front of the file, indicating the file name has been changed and will require the attention of the uploader), this will help to upload the files faster.

        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

        • Change sync folders without waiting for previous sync to complete to avoid computer hard drive being filled up

          At present, you can't change the folder sync choices while a synchronisation is in process. If your computer fills up then you are stuck in limbo, unable to do anything without unlinking your account and starting again. If there was a way to cancel a synchronisation half way through or make changes while synchronising this would be fixed. I believe this to be a bug, but Microsoft Support tell me it is a design feature.

                    • 新規同期開始時に、MacのデータかOneDrive上のデータを利用するか選択できるようにする

                      OneDriveは同期が旨くできなくなることが多く、度々MacのOneDrive設定をやり直すのですが、その時にOneDriveのファイルが、Macのファイルを上書きしないようにファイル名にMacの名前を付けた物に変えてしまうが、Macのファイルの方が新しい事が殆ど。同期開始時にどちらのデータで上書きするか決められるようにして欲しい。

                        • 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.

                            • Allow schedule time for syncing.

                              Computer slows drastically when syncing, so would be nice to be able to set sync after hours.

                                  • Make "Open at Login" the default setting

                                    Currently the default setting for OneDrive on Mac is to NOT open at login. This causes a lot of grief for my users whose files are not syncing automatically. The setting also seems to get reset occasionally(!) despite being left turned on.

                                    I honestly cannot think of a situation where you would have OneDrive installed and not have it sync by default. By all means, allow me to turn that off, but please make "on" the default setting. A warning if the user tries to turn it off would also be a good idea. Thank you.

                                    • Preview files in OneDrive / Sharepoint by pressing the SPACEBAR

                                      Currently when a file is selected in GDrive, Dropbox, SYNC or any other cloud storage platform, pressing the SPACEBAR gives a full screen preview of the said file.. At the minute this only works with files saved locally and NOT files in OneDrive / Sharepoint which are in the cloud. All other cloud based services allow this preview functionality. WHy not Microsoft 365?

                                        Create an app within the onedrive program that can view files online instead of using safari.

                                        • File off line on Mac Osx Sierra

                                          Il client di One Drive per Mac, non permette di scaricare solo le anteprime in locale, come su windows e selezionare quali cartelle o file, si vogliono mantenere offline. Questa cosa è molto limitante, perché nel mio Mac Book Pro, non c'è spazio abbastanza per scaricate tutto il contenuto del mio OneDrive, obbligandomi a frammentare i miei documenti verso altri servizi. Vi prego di aggiungere questa funzionalità, possibilmente compatibile anche con Mac OsX Sierra.
                                          Grazie
