  2. 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…

  3. Allow shared folders to be moved into subfolders.

    As described in "Moving shared files and shared folders in your OneDrive" in the documentation, "If you move a shared folder into another folder, it takes the permissions of the destination folder." Since shared folders are placed in the root of the OneDrive folder by default, this makes it impossible to organize shared folders into subfolders by project or type.

    In general, moving a shared folder (or a link to someone else's shared folder) into a regular subfolder should not change the permissions of the shared folder.

  5. Resume copying incompletely copied file when the net is back

    If the internet gets disconnected while copying a large file, I don't think it resumes copying from where it left off. This feature is badly required.

  6. Pausing "on/off"

    Currently pausing is set to 2,8 or 24 hrs.
    Why you did not want to have simply a "Pausing" option to control "on/off" pausing at all?
    This is beneficial when travelling and use phone to connect, can save a lot of data costs (i.e. roaming).
    Thank you!

  8. The on-display showing which files have synced shows very less details and should include more information

    The quick shortcut on Mac showing which files are being synced displays very mundane information, it should show much more information like time required to upload the file especially for large files.

  9. Full Support of macOS File System Character Names

    The OneDrive client running on the macOS file system should not require that we change names of files that are allowed on macOS but not supported by the backend file system OneDrive uses to store files in the cloud. A file that is named with a filename that is fully supported by the macOS file system should sync to the cloud and be presented in the OneDrive web UI with the proper file name. It should synch to another Mac exactly as it should. When synching with incompatible filesystems, there should be an established pattern for handling that on other…

  10. OneDive should upload EVERY type of file without fuss.

    I've used Google Drive for the past few years with 100% satisfactory results. It uploads EVERY TYPE of file without a fuss. Just for the sake of understanding how different my experience would be with OneDrive, last year I tried to use OneDrive. My data consists of ALL TYPES of files. In the first few minutes OneDrive gave me more than 100 reasons why it was unable to upload some files so I got discouraged and abandoned the idea.
    Recently I heard there is some improvement and Microsoft would like us to "Come Back To OneDrive" so today I tried…

  12. 즉시 동기화

    즉시 동기화 할 수 있는 버튼이 있었으면 좋겠습니다.

    지금은 일시정지를 했다가 다시 온라인 연결하는 형태로 하는 하는데

    필요한 문서가 바로 동기화 되어서 함께 공유되면 좋겠습니다.

  14. Message is "Processing nnnn changes" after opening a single file

    The message, "Processing nnnn changes" is, to me, confusing where nnnn is upwards of 3,000 and happens after no activity for 17 hours when I open a single Excel file residing on OneDrive. I have not seen that message on Windows 10 when doing something similar, on the same OneDrive. I am not sure the message is necessary, though I can imagine all those changes being made, but perhaps I do not need to know that. Without some background, or a White Paper describing what happens, I wonder if the number of changes are caused by something I have done…

  15. Silent Auto Config option for macOS OneDrive client

    On Windows we can use the Silent Auto Config GPO setting so that when a user starts OneDrive it will automatically sign in with their account and configure the client so they don't see any setup wizard. For Mac's that are AD Bound this should not be an issue and they should have the same functionality.

  16. Solution APFS and ONEDRIVE can't create folder

    I found the solution with APFS case sensitive: Go to disk utility . Disk Utility menu-> EDIT->Add APFS volume. Select the APFS as format not the APFS case sensitive. This will create a second volume without deleting the current volume. Internally it creates a MOUNT. Then setup onedrive in the new volume....

    Thankfully APFS is a superb filesystem.

  18. See Available Space in Menu

    It would be great if clicking the OneDrive menu icon showed the space used/available.

  19. Atualizar o OneDrive corrigindo o roubo de RAM que ele faz com o Mac

    Precisam entender o que está acontecendo com o app para Mac onde rouba memória RAM do MacBook deixando-o lento. Basta encerrar os processos que o computador volta ao normal. Vejam na foto anexa onde mostra que o OneDrive está roubando 5 GB de RAM de um total de 8 GB, sendo que livre fica 1 GB, ou seja, todos os demais processos juntos gastam apenas 2 GB, menos de 50% de um único app.
