    • onedrive web always stalls after uploading few files - hangs on "uploading *** items" for ever (win 10 chrome and Edge)

      i am trying to upload my photos to onedrive via the web. I dont do it via the windows sync app as I dont want this folder synced as its too big.

      I know all the fragile problems with onedrive, and can confirm that:

      all my file names are < 8 chars + ".jpg"
      None of the filenames nor folders have any chars other than ascii
      There is only one level deapth (a directory with files in it)
      I have 300GB of space left in my 1TB (so its not a space issue).
      Files are all < 10MB, so its…

      • Linux desktop client for OneDrive

        Since Microsoft officially has become a Linux Community Supporter, it is a shame not to have a Linux desktop client for OneDrive.

        • To add 1TB und 5TB to the options for increasing onedrive size without office.

          I own a Office 2016 Pro Plus license via the HUP and extending the storage to 1TB using the actual offers would result in downgrading my office licenses. Please add 1TB and 5 TB to the plans offered for onedrive w/o office licenses.

          • duplicate photo removal tool

            Most of my pictures in one drive have duplicates, it would be great to have a tool to allow us to delete those pictures as they use some necessary space.

            • Second account and login for OneDrive

              I am suggesting that it is permitted to be signed into more than one OneDrive account. I currently have a work account and would appreciate signing into my personal account without having to sign out of the other.

              Regards,
              David Grant

                • Enable Cortana to use OneDrive music to play on Harman/Kardon Invoke

                  I really want to be able to play the music that I have stored on my OneDrive on my Harman/Kardon Invoke.
                  Groove integration would also be nice, then I can play Groove playlists on my Invoke.

                        • 50000 limit groove

                          Currently Groove is limited to being able to sync just 50,000 items from the OneDrive Music folder.

                          1. Increase the limiting threshold substantially (I have 60,000 tracks currently and this grows every year, especially as I digitise my LP collection)
                          2. Provide a warning for the Music folder when the threshold has been exceeded

                          • Add a settings option to automatically keep all files only online (as per the Free Space menu)

                            I like to have all my files only online, no local copies. I have no need to keep the files locally and they occupy a lot of my SSD storage space.

                            To achieve this I have to select the files or folders and right-click the mouse and choose 'Free Space'.

                            Please add a settings option to automatically do this for all files in my account. Or, optionally, allow me do set this 'automatic Free Space' for each directory in my account, so that any file added there will be automatically kept online only.

                            • I would like to be able to buy 1 TB storage space for my OneDrive account without having to buy another Office 365 license.

                              I have a personal OneDrive account for which I had 1 TB storage space, but did not have an Office 365 subscription. I have another business account with an Office 365 subscription already.

                              I sent a lot of files to my personal account, and last month the 1 TB storage allowance was terminated (its one year period expired). I had to buy another Office 365 subscription to be able to add 1 TB storage space back to this account. I will never user the Office products from this account, for besides my on line Office 365 account, I also have…

                              • Allow a user to transfer its files to another user. I have two accounts and would like to do so.

                                I would like to be able to transfer or copy all my files from one of my subscription to another, directly without the need to copy them to my PC first.

                                This should be available to transfer between personal and business accounts too.

                                This would certainly be very fast and would not require me to have lots of space available in my SSDs.

I'm sure there are far more than 500 votes for this category already, I just didn't feel like reading through all 5000 plus search results to find one that matched my idea exactly. Every time I added a word to my search, instead of narrowing down my search results it kept adding more search results.

                                  • Add the 'Set up show' options window to Powerpoint Online.

                                    This is in regards to Powerpoint online, it does not have the option to change the show-type to "Browsed at a kiosk" like the regular Microsoft Powerpoint has. Do you have plans to add this to Powerpoint online? Here is the reason why it's good to have, when the show type is set to Kiosk it makes it so that it doesn't advance to the next slide by simply clicking, it makes it so that you have to click on a Hyperlink button to advance to another slide. My presentation has Buttons on it that takes the viewer to the…

                                      • Pictures should have preview tiles

                                        When uploading to One Drive online pictures should have a preview tile. Otherwise it is near impossible to find a picture as pictures are typically identified by a numbering system. There is nothing descript about am alpha numeric. The tiles are essential to find content when dealing with pictures.

                                        • When in a folder show the file count.

                                          The file count appears on the folder when outside. It would be a nice feature to see the file count when inside a folder.
