Enable sync priority
I would really like the option to prioritise syncing for specific files or folders within the OneDrive folder during large bulk syncs. For example, I recently added ~25GB of music. During that time, I made a change to an important document on my Mac, but I couldn't access it on my W10M phone (where I needed it) because it was stuck in the syncing backlog. My workplace uses Carbonite cloud backup, and I know that you can right-click certain files/folders that haven't synced yet and force them to the front of the queue ahead of any others.

Extremely important. Many customers with files on demand still have a large file/folder set so it takes up to a week in some scenarios before all items can be seen.
Yes I need this!
Also, why is the default a bulk sync/ upload (that you can't stop) vs. syncing the files in the cloud only, and then be able to choose what to "always keep on this device" later?
Similar suggestion here. Please vote it too!

I use OneDrive For Business to sync with SharePoint Online sites created for projects I work on. It would be very useful for me to be able to prioritise specific files or folders (the hot files I'm working on right now that other people need to access) to be synced before others. Right now it can easily take an hour for files to sync.
