  1. An addition of rsync functinalities onto OneDrive

    In OneDrive I would appreciate a functionality to choose how the syncing is made: e.g. whether bidirectional or onedirectional. I, for instance, would like to just sync files onedirectional onto the OneDrive as a backup, but also would appreciate a bidirectional possibility present ini OneDrive already. A combination of at least some basic rsync command line options with a Onedrive might be nice.

  2. Please provide a button to clear sync errors.

    I presently have over 3,000 errors due to a resource disk failure. That source disk will never be recovered and the files will never be synced. Yet I'm stuck with all these error messages.

    Please help

  3. CPU usage is too high for Catalina.

    CPU usage is too high for Catalina. This rapidly depletes Macbook battery.

  4. Set Optional 'Expiration Dates' for Local OneDrive On-Demand Files

    It would be super great to be able to set expiration dates within the On-Demand files feature so that, if after X number of days have passed a local file has not been opened, it is automatically removed and reverts back to online status.

    If we're using the On-Demand features, chances are we already feel a little tight on space (or know we're going to have to reckon with storage issues soon). Having to go back through an entire directory and free up space per file or folder saves any kind of maintenance until the last minute we when are…

  5. I want to control sync on Mac

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Mac PC での同期制御を希望
    I want to control sync on Mac


    ■Description(内容):
    現状 Mac PC の同期を制御すると、すべての Mac PC で同期が禁止されるため、一部ユーザーの Mac PC で同期を制御できる機能を追加してほしい。
    Currently if sync for Mac is restricted, all Macs will be unable to use the sync feature, so I hope that a change will be implemented to make some users be able to control sync on their Macs.

  7. Mac端删除云端文件的问题

    在Mac上安装了onedrive,但删除同步文件件里的文件时,该文件只在云盘中,onedrive要先下载再删除。我认为这样很麻烦,希望能直接删除而不是先下载再删除。

  8. Cannot access Preferences during file synchronization

    While synchronizing files, the OneDrive appears too busy and I can't access Preferences of OneDrive. This is a bit silly because I want to configure which folders to synchronize and I cannot until synchronization is finished.

  10. OneDrive thumbnails not showing on new mac

    My new mac doesn't show thumbnails. In order to see them I have to open my photoshop and save the image to see a thumbnail. I work with images and I need to see what is in the folder to be able to work effectively. I use Onedrive ... I do not know if this is a bug related to onedrive or macOS Mojave. But in my old mac I can see all thumbnails using onedrive and macOS Mojave.

  11. Avoid mass deletions after restore from Time Machine

    After upgrading a Mac disk and restoring data from Time Machine, OneDrive begins deleting many or all of the files on SharePoint. OneDrive apparently does not recognize the files as being the same. This raises the potential for loss of the entire enterprise shared data due to one workstation upgrade. Please consider fixing OneDrive to recognize restored files, or allow the admin to limit or stop deletions from one machine.

  18. Save as dialog should open the folder in which the original file sits

    When opening an Office file from an OneDrive (or SharePoint) synced location and saving it with "save as", the same folder should open up. Just like when working on the local file system.

    Currently it opens the Desktop or any other location when doing so.

  19. Sort Onedrive without Folder Grouping

    I am requesting that Onedrive contents to be sorted alphanumeric without Folder Grouping at the top of the list.
    Currently sorting in Onedrive results in folders that are sorted and grouped above files which requires me to scroll down for a file I was expecting to be at the top of the sorted list.
    I will often name files and folders in a way that will result in a hierarchy that improves work flow.
    For example, I would name files with numbers at the beginning of their names so the files are in the order of a process to execute. …
