  1. Allow OneDrive to backup photos in the Photos app on Mac.

    Create a feature in the One Drive app for Mac to automatically backup photos from the Photos app, just like it works in the iPhone app.
    It would be great if one could choose if you want to backup the photos from iPhone or Mac.
    In my case, my iPhone doesn't have enough space to storage all photos, so, they are on iCloud and the iPhone only have a local low resolution version of the photos.So, the OneDrive appin the iPhone automatically uploads my photos in low resolution.
    It would be nice if I could ask the OneDrive to upload…

  2. Default Settings for Sharing Links

    A User must be able to make a default setting for sharing his/her files. For example, 90% times, we need to share a link which should not be editable and must expire automatically in 7 days. There is no way to configure this. The current way is that a link shared allows editing by default and it does not expire.

  4. Pause a particular file from uploading

    It would be nice if you could pause a particular file from uploading so that other files will upload first.
    For example, if I have a file that is 600 MB in size and 2500 files that are 1-2 MB in size that I need to upload at the same time, I would like to be able to pause the 600 MB file so that the 2500 files can upload first and then let the 600 MB file upload last.

  5. Improve upload speed on mac/OSX

    The speed with which files sync is simply embarrassing, and this is me being very mild and polite. The product, as it is, is not usable by any standards.
    So please, sort this out.

  6. stop downloading files when low disk space

    curvy version downloads until disk space runs out, then falls and requires re-signing

  7. Corregir los caracteres con tilde o ñ

    En la versión para MAC, el texto sale con signos cuando se usa caracteres como la ñ o tildes. Eso hace que incomode a la vista.

  8. Fix this strange behaviour - When paused, context menus disappear, can't share and can't open preferences

    Currently when sync is paused in the Mac app, it shuts down the entire app. No context menu, no status icons next to files and folders, can't share and can't open the app preferences.

    No only this, when you restart sharing it takes a right long time to get going with the wheel of death dancing in your face.

    Why?

    I have a hunch that the second part is to do with the first part. I suggest you fix this strange behaviour, so users can still share and access the preferences while paused and not have to wait for 'something'…

  9. improve the OneDrive Desktop app for Mac by allowing the Finder window to display files & folders that are shared with me by other people.

    I suggest you improve the OneDrive Desktop app for Mac by enabling the Finder window to display files & folders that are shared with me by other people (as I can on DropBox & GoogleDrive). Currently, I can only see files & folders shared with me by using the OneDrive web interface.

  10. Allow changing name of the local top-level folder to something other than \OneDrive.

    OneDrive creates a /Users/alias/OneDrive folder as it's root. Allow changing ti to something more consistent with the other user folder names, like /Users/alias/Drive.

  11. 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:

  12. Sync both the Onedrive folder and another folder

    New laptops have a small ssd inside and people prefer to use an external drive. Please allow to sync both the Onedrive folder inside a computer and another folder inside an external drive, or make the possibility of support a symbolic link or give us the possibility of transfer data via sftp.

  13. connection

    My connection dropped (it happens). After one minute it got back again.
    Check the difference between Dropbox icon and OneDrive on the attached image.
    Dropbox felt the connection dropping, but also realised that it got back together and continued working. After I'm disconnected OneDrive just gives up, It never even bothers checking if my connection is back. I have to close and restar the software.

    COME-ON! It should SYNC, so that means it should keep actively looking for my files and for my connection. This is not someone I hired and that needed a break because it got tired, THIS…

  15. 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.

  16. Make it easier to choose folders for syncing (on Mac)

    Setting up folders to sync on Mac was painful for me because all folders in "Choose Folders" were checked by default... I had to go through and uncheck each one. I only sync a few folders because this is my work machine (vs. home machine, with plenty of space, where I'm fine with syncing all of them.)

    I'd like to see "uncheck all" and "check all" buttons.

  17. Remove duplicate "OneDrive Almost Full" warning notifications

    Remove the duplicate alerts for when you receive a "OneDrive is X% full" notification. It pops up every time OneDrive Syncs and is very irritating to have to clear every few minutes. It should only have to be done once.

  18. Increase Upload Speed for Bandwidth up to at least 15MBits/second

    I am getting a throughput of 2MBits/second on average. This is wholly unacceptable. My ISP provides me 15MBits per second upload links. Either build more server farms and localize them to each metropolitan area, host using another providers cloud, or increase your number of fiber optic links to your network center with carriers like Verizon, AT&T, L3, etc. so that the servers on your system can handle at least 15MBits/second if not more. Uploading a GB of data should not be taking this long. Files are large these days, we are sold 1TB of data as part of Office 360.…

  20. 我们希望可以优先同步某些文件夹

    我们希望可以优先同步某些文件夹。因为我们将onedrive当作我们工作生活的一部分,所以我们的大量文件、照片都存放在onedrive上,但是每当我们使用的时候发现onedrive有大量的照片任务正在同步,而我需要的重要文件确迟迟得不到同步。需要在同步完成几十GB的照片后才能同步。所以我们希望可以增加一个优先同步文件夹的选项控制,以同步某些特别重要的文件
