  1. Allow the mac version to install OneDrive folder at removable disk

    A lot of macs have expensive and limited SSDs and it would be convenient to be able to put the OneDrive folder at a external drive.

  3. Allow OneDrive for Business Sync Client to recognize domain-bound Macs in the Enterprise

    Allow OneDrive for Business Sync Client to recognize domain-bound Macs in the Enterprise.

    Our company recently adopted the OneDrive for Business (OD4B)next generation sync client. As part of this adoption our internal Information Security team has set a security policy allowing only domain-bound workstations to leverage the OD4B sync client.

    We are binding our Mac workstations to our corporate domain, just like our Windows workstations; however, Microsoft has told us that Macs are not truly bound to our corporate domain -- they are simply "associated" with our domain meaning our Mac workstations fall outside of this domain-bound security policy. This…

  4. 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: 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

  5. Online-only support for Mac OS X

    Hello! I really like the online-only feature that OneDrive has for Windows, and I'm sad that the same feature isn't available for Mac. The files I have are eating up space on my hard drive, and using selective sync doesn't cut it (the large size of my OneDrive is due to images and .PSD documents which I open in bulk for image editing, and are a hassle to download from the website every time I simply want to use them.)

    I'd really appreciate it if this feature were implemented, since I'm running low on space! If not, I'm probably going…

  8. Sync via symbolic links

    In Dropbox I just create bunch of symbolic links to my Downloads, Documents & Desktop folders so that my stuffs will be safe with me always.

    Looking for the similar treatment from OneDrive too :p

  9. Preserving Mac OS X (file system) tags and extended attributes (xattr)

    Unless I am missing something, it appears as if OneDrive is not honoring and preserving file system tags (see [1]) or even extended attributes (see [2]).
    Granted, these features are difficult to maintain over different OS and file system types. But if files and folders are synchronized within the same environment, it is very disturbing, to say the very least, to see this (meta) data simply discarded by OneDrive.

    Thank you.

  10. Better support for Sketch.app files

    We still use Dropbox as OneDrive doesn't play nicely with the Sketch.app files on the Mac our user experience designers use. We'd love to move off of Dropbox entirely and only use OneDrive, but aren't able to until Sketch.app files are better supported.

  11. Fix the memory leak in the macOS OneDrive client!

    There has been a serious memory leak in the OneDrive client for macOS for over a year. There are multiple posts on the OneDrive support forum about this, and I've made multiple support requests all of which have come to naught.

    The symptoms are quite simple - on machines running Sierra and High Sierra the OneDrive client's memory foot print grows without ceasing over time, eventually causing the host machine to run out of memory. See attached image for memory footprint on a High Sierra running MacPro after 7 hours 39 minutes from a cold boot ,with OneDrive (latest version)…

  12. Sharing files with Mac users

    My business has both Windows and Mac users and the Mac users are unable to sync locally the shared business files - only their own personal files. It's made collaboration using OneDrive almost unusable. It seems the same thing happens with OneDrive for business on the iPhone - my users can't see the shared folders. Nightmare. Please fix these issues.

  15. Sync Finder metadata and permissions (OS X)

    On Mac OS X, documents can have color labels and tags. These are currently not synced across devices using Onedrive. Same for file permissions.

  16. 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.

  18. Icon for sidebar in finder

    Dropbox and iCloud have dedicated icons for when they are placed in the finder sidebar. When the one drive folder is placed there, though it has a custom folder icon inside the finder window, it reverts back to a standard folder icon. I suggest that you find a way to make this be the actual one drive icon.

  19. Syncing with OneDrive for Business on mac app NOT available?!

    The fact that our business is now going to be paying hundreds of dollars to Microsoft and not being able to have a syncing ability for shared folders/files is UNREASONABLE! Macs are a business targeted computer option and being that the Business option for OneDrive does not have a full functionality is ridiculous. We are in the process of moving over from DropBox and this set-back is really making me want to let our CEO know that moving over to OneDrive may be a grave mistake. Knowing that people and businesses have been addressing this concern for months now and…
