  2. Free website hosting in onedrive

    Allow people to host files in OneDrive for free so that we can get more young programmers to learn html, css, JavaScript etc. If kids/teens have an easy simple way to host their own personal website, don't you think they would what to experiment and try new more complex things.

  4. Hide folder structure when sharing folders with others

    Despite it's stated here as "solved" this issue remains. When workind for a customer, I store all the data on OneDrive, sorted by project, date, version and so on. When I want to show something to my customer or deliver the final files, I usually share an export folder within my project folder. To my horror I just realised, every customer can see my whole folder structure up to the root folder. This is absolutely not acceptable for I consider my file structure and my namings as private property and in worst case as confidential. Please fix this or give…

  5. Email notification

    Hi,

    It would be great to get notified when the shared file is accessed or downloaded by the people I have shared. This ensures that they read my file with date and time stamp.

  8. Backup service to protect from accidental delete

    I put everything on OneDrive (~1TB), and I sync it from many devices.
    If by mistake I delete something on a device it get deleted everywhere!

    I'm afraid that a single mistake can propagate and destroy everything (what happen if a virus infect one of my pc and crypt my onedrive folder?)

    I would like to backup the entire onedrive content, as online service (I would pay for it)!
    I would be able to restore a file/folder if accidentaly deleted/modified

  11. Make OneDrive Music Player

    Good day Team Onedrive, I would love to see OneDrive Music Player embedded online, So we can listen to our music files stored online in Onedrive, instead of the option of it being download only.

  12. Folders Permission and family members

    Hi

    I suggest that you add the ability to have sub accounts for family members to share their files and photos and every folder have permissions of who can use it read and write.

    This feature is available on Prime Photos from Amazon but I like your app and hope you ca add this feature.

    Thanks

  13. show file extensions on all files on onedrive.live.com

    I really LOVE to see what kind of file I'm looking at. So I need to see the file extension at the end like for example photo.jpg or photo.psd or music.mp4 or music.wav

  16. Download entire Onedrive personal button

    If for some reason Sync breaks or you need to make a personal backup.
    Please make a DOWNLOAD ALL CONTENT button.

    Download times out if the folders are larger than 2 gigabytes and it takes time to download 180 gigabytes 2 gb at the time!

  17. Copy to My OneDrive Function for Shared Folders with Read-only Permissions

    Add the function to copy to my OneDrive files shared with read only permissions.
    It would save users the time, resources, and probability to have errors, downloading and uploading files to OneDrive.

    The server would also benefit to a certain extent from the workload, improving service efficiency.

    Thanks,
    Alex

  19. External and additional hard drive.

    Feature to synchronize external and additional hard drive may enhance its functionality.
    On closing, One drive shuts the upload and the upload process cannot be restored after re-opening the one drive.If the upload process can continue in the background, so other work can be done even if we close One Drive.

  20. Stop lost laptop from accessing my OneDrive files

    Lost my laptop and want to know what to do to secure my OneDrive files from the thief.
    Resetting the Microsoft password does not stop the stolen laptop from accessing OneDrive. How do I know? Because I was using OneDrive on three devices; my desktop, laptop, and an iPad. Lost the laptop and reset my Microsoft password as suggested in many posts. HOWEVER, my iPad still continued to have access to my OneDrive files!

    So what's the answer? If one loses a device, is one's OneDrive account forever compromised?

    We need to know what to do; not be told that…
