  2. MAC: "Sync Now" or "Restart/Resync".

    The restart/resync option would eliminate having to quite OneDrive, then look in the Application folder or toolbar to manually restart.

  5. Be able to backup a folder in my one drive from right clicking on it

    One drive is just a backup solution for me. I want to right click on a folder on my mac, add it to my one drive so it's backedup. That's it end of story.

  6. Fix visibility for Choose folders to sync – when other app is fullscreen

    Make Choose folders to sync visible (on top of other windows), when selecting this with other app in fullscreen. Now – regrardless onedrive window in foreground – it is not possible. I can see OneDrive preferences pane and when try to Choose folder, I must minimize app in the background. Or make choose folder easier to access. Now it its terrible – 5 steps to reach basic function.

  7. Stop forcing OneDrive folders to Favorites in the Finder Sidebar

    Every time I reboot, OneDrive forcefully places a shortcut to it's folder in the Finder Sidebar Favorites section.
    I'd like to have the choice of disabling this.

  8. Speed up uploading thousands of very small files

    I have a local backup of my GMail made with gmvault. It's a folder with subfolders and files amounting to several hundred thousand files.


    1. OneDrive stalls... my CPU starts working at 100% for several hours non-stop. I aborted it.


    2. I decided to try and upload a single sub-folder with just 1000 files. After taking some minutes to process it, OneDrive started uploading them one by one, taking over 3 seconds per file. This makes it impossible for me to upload the GMail backup into OneDrive.


    OneDrive should:

  9. Allow you to choose a folder in your mac (and PC) you just want the contents to be on the cloud

    It would be great if could upload a folder to the one drive's cloud and only view its content on you mac (or PC). As long as you want some file from this folder, it would be automatically dowloaded.

    This would be useful for people who doesn't have much space left in the hard drive and would like to share some content between the hard drive and the cloud

  10. 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: inodeval: object (oid 0x417de2): invalid bsdflags (0x10)
    I have verified is the onedrive folder using the following command from mac terminal:
    find / -inum 4292066

    where 4292066 is 417de2 in decimal

  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. to open the files in "collaborative mode" when using the synced folder to open a file.

    I'm using OneDrive to collaborate with my colleagues on the same document.

    In windows when opening a file from the synced folder of OneDrive, it automatically enables the "Collaborative mode" (with the circle arrows in the save icon), on Mac it doesn't!

    Every time I want to open a file and collaborate (often) we have to search for the file from the navigation tool of the application instead of Finder, which is inconvenient!

  13. Sync shared files to OneDrive on Mac

    It would be awesome if files and folders shared with us by other users would be directly synced to a locally shared folder (shared with me folder) on the Mac. At present we can't directly open any file that is shared. We have to go to OneDrive on the web to access them.

    This feature is already present on OneDrive for iOS. Would love something just like the shared tab in OneDrive for iOS.

  14. Menu items at the top of menubar

    Why can't the menu items be at the top so it's quicker to open folder etc. Also, add preferences so you can choose folders faster.

    i am using onedrive as a backup service for all my photos. and i do not need sync all photos back to my local onedrive folder. i will review all photos directly in onedrive just like google photos.

  16. Just make it possible, to sync specific and different folders from your mac into the drive.

    I want to sync different folders from my mac into the onedrive and not only sync one specific folder, where all data from the rootfolder will be saved.

  18. Stop moving OneDrive & Sharepoint folders to bottom of Sidebar on Mac

    Right now, when one places the icon for OneDrive or Sharepoint folders in the Sidebar in Finder on Mac, every time the Mac is restarted, the folders are moved to bottom of Sidebar and also reverts back to top level folder of Sharepoint instead of keeping shortcut to lower level folder created.

    I believe, as with any other app (Dropbox etc) used for syncing files, the folders in the Sidebar should stay put as configured by user.

  19. How about making an application with the functionality of Dropbox.

    How about fixing the restrictions on file and folder naming so it is not such a pain to use. Dropbox is the example to work to.

  20. Sharing suggestions

    if somebody gets a sharing link the folder should be immediately added to his space or at least a suggestion to be given at the right moment
