  1. Syncing OneDrive business with an external harddrive

    I have OneDrive business and can‘t sync to an external drive. I even formatted it to NTFS with a third party software. Not even that helped.Wasted 30 bucks on that :-(

  2. OneDrive Stuck Synching errors should be reported effectively

    OneDrive for Mac gets stuck - most commonly when a file is located in a shared folder which for some reason the user running the OneDrive process does not have Read/Write access to. It does not report this error, it simply gets stuck, uses high levels of CPU and writes new log files every 30 seconds or so.

    There is no way to see the file causing the issue - a problem if you have lots of Sharepoint sites synching and you don't know where the issue is.

    It should provide an easy mechanism to see the file that is…

  3. Allow to keep a local folder when removing it from the sync

    As a developer I keep some of the projects on OneDrive, however this means that some of the folders are generated during the run of the applications and I don't want them to be synced.
    We have an option to not sync a folder, however that deletes the local copy, which if I run the code again, it creates a new folder with the same name causing an error in sync.

    Would like to see a solution where the folder can be removed from the sync but be kept locally and any changes in it to be ignored.

  4. Add more protection against OD missing local files to be sychronized

    Every time I need to do a total reset of the OD client on my computer (due to the many times this https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/913525-onedrive-on-mac/suggestions/32803531-cpu-usage-too-high-in-high-sierra?page=8&per_page=20 has happened, I always preserve my local content and set a new location for the OD folder. Once it has downloaded all of what OD has, I compare old vs new and always find hundreds of files which OD has missed (either not deleted or created). You have to beef up your monitoring for anything that was missed.

  5. This is the most spammy software I have ever had invade my operating system.

    This is the most spammy software I have ever had invade my operating system.

    Stop trying to constantly log me in. I will decide when I am ready to log in, thanks.

    Stop changing the focus back to your folder in Finder. I am busy trying to do work and dont want to be constantly re-focused on what your spammy software is doing, or as is the case mostly, not doing, I will decide when I want to use/look at/tab to/ focus on your software - which is never because it GETS IN THE WAY OF ME DOING ACTUAL WORK

  7. import powerpoint mac notes

    make a function that allows importing powerpoint to one note on Mac with the slide notes -- none of the current formats for importing an MS powerpoint (exporting slides as PDF, PNGs/TIFFs, etc.) to one note keep notes associated with the slides. I have to manually copy/paste them for every slide as a result, which is tedious for a student who uses tons of ppts!

  8. Stop Reorganizing my files!e

    I spent hours and hours organizing my music into 6400 files into alphabetical format. I uploaded these files to OneDrive only to find that OneDrive automatically reorganized them into folders by artist and then created subfolders containing albums and then OneDrive put my songs into these subfolders along with album art. In doing this, OneDrive destroyed all the work I had done in creating 6400 individual files in one folder. I wanted my own organization so I could drag and drop songs into various Mac and Window player devices. Now I have to do all that work all over again.…

  12. Improve handling of directory errors

    When a directory has an invalid name, every folder in that directory is also listed in the sync errors.

    Please allow for alternate file names so the files in the folder can still be synched despite a folder name error (character substitution should allow that - or for this scenario just truncating spaces at the start or end of folder names).

    Failing that, please don't list all the files within the folder seperately - or at least put the directory with the issue at the top of the list so that users don't go hunting for errors on files when…

  15. OneDrive updates for macOS are hanging/unavailable

    LIke everything else doled out by crApple, the OneDrive for macOS on Apple's crApp Store does NOT download; it just hangs.

    As Microsoft is undoubtedly aware, Team Crook (Tim Cook and his sheeple) redefine "horrific trainwreck" with regards to appeasing the customer.

    Since we (end-users) are ignored and don't care to waste any further time with this dead company, will you (Microsoft) kindly advise crApple to get your downloads working for those of us needing them?

    You have the money and ability to "finish off" the wreckage of Cook -- AND give us (at the very minimum) what Jobs could…

  20. Fix the error opening Word documents on organizations with 8 bits characters using OneDrive Next Gen Client

    Hello,
    The One Drive Next Gen Client doesn't support 8 bit characters in the name of folders. In particular, the accent characters in the OneDriveBusiness folder that includes the organization name.
    In case of organization names with 8 bit characters, we can't open Word documents from the syncronized folder.
