  1. Giver users a way to upload files without having to sync?

    Currently I have to copy my files onto OneDrive, then tell it to free up space. This is a headache, as I have to wait for OneDrive to free up space in order to copy the next batch of files, and it doesn't work well, as OneDrive stops freeing up space arbitrarily. It also doesn't work well for users with small hard drives (on Mac or Windows).

    Why not let users either have some other method of uploading files if they're going to be online only anyway? Or let users select arbitrary folders?

    As a user, I would add that…

  5. Picture Explorer

    Es wäre sehr toll, wenn es auch mit der OneDrive auf Mac OS möglich wäre, alle Bilder wie bei mobiler App betrachten zu können. Dies ist mit der OneDrive App unter Windows möglich, nicht jedoch mit der Onedrive Implementierung beim Mac. Sehr Schade! It would be very great if it would be possible to view all pictures with OneDrive on Mac OS just like in a mobile app. This is possible with the OneDrive app on Windows, but not with the Onedrive implementation on Mac.

  9. Change notebook url link save location in OneDrive

    Briefly, I would like to see a feature on OneNote for Mac or OneDrive that allows users to change the automatic save location of OneNote notebooks on OneDrive from 'documents' to a different folder.

    Currently, OneNote uses an auto detect save feature in order to save and sync notebooks from the program into OneDrive. After speaking with a Microsoft representative, he mentioned that this feature does not allow for the notebook save location to be changed into a different folder within OneDrive (i.e. a user-created folder called 'OneNote notebooks').

    From the research that I have done, I noticed that OneNote…

  10. Mejoras en los recursos durante la sincronización, al menos en Mac.

    OneDrive utiliza demasiados recursos (bateria) durante la sincronización, es decir, siempre. A diferencia de otros programas, como Dropbox, no es capaz de diferenciar que archivos se han modificado, por lo que está constantemente sincronizando todo. La batería de mi Mac sin OneDrive me dura mas de 6 horas, a veces hasta 8 horas dependiendo del uso, pero con OneDrive, máximo 1,5 horas, así de dramático, y me costó darme cuenta de esto, primero pasó 2 veces por el Servicio Técnico.

  11. Auto clean caches

    The "File On-Demand" function is really easy to use! However, is there any way to let Onedrive remove caches automatically?

  12. Make OneDrive for MacOS a Universal app

    OneDrive for Mac is not working that well on a MacBook Pro with M1 (ARM64 Apple Silicon cpu). It works, but I experience rapid freezes and energy consumption is way too high. Can Microsoft prioritise to make OneDrive into a Universal App with Support for both Intel and Apple Silicon natively?

  13. Add a Checkbox to Disable Sync When Running on Battery

    Onedrive uses an excessive amount of energy, heating the mac, causing a drastic decrease in battery life while running.
    (I have two Macbook Pro's 16" and 13", running on latest on Catalina and Big Sur and having this issue on both)

    Please add an option in the settings to disable sync while running on the battery to avoid this problem easily.

    Thanks.

  14. Problema con One Drive con la nueva actualización de Mac OS Big Sour.

    Hola existe un problema con One Drive 365 con la nueva actualización de Mac OS Big Sour.
    Cada vez que se reinicia el equipo hay que reingresar las credenciales y vuelve a realizar el proceso inicial con la sincronización.

    La aplicación además funciona muy lento y en ocasiones se cae.

  15. Power to cancel downloads

    Unlike in Windows, in Mac "Downloads" does not have options, so it is not possible to prevent accidental downloads, either by mistake or because an app "claims" the files.
    Interestingly, the uploads can be interrupted.

  16. Automatic sync issues resolving

    Hi

    we have people that have around 900 sync issues on their OneDrive because the name of the file is apparently wrong, and OneDrive refuses to sync the files on OneDrive for other users because of the name issues. It would be quite the project to resolve every one of these manually, and therefore we wish that OneDrive would resolve these and future name issues automatically by changing the name.

    Thanks!

  20. OneDrive>Business and Consumer versions should be same!

    Why is there a difference in functionality? Both versions should be same so that I can toggle back and forth from my university(Business) OneDrive and my personal OneDrive. Namely, I want to copy my ENTIRE notebook from one app to the other. Why isn't this available for Business? Google Suite is setting the example. Why is MSFT falling behind with ideas?
