  3. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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
    AbdulQayyom

  8. 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

  11. 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!

  12. Stop Folder creation!!!

    I hate when I have all my photos in dozens of new folders, which I don't want. So stop OneDrive from making all useless and annoting folders!

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. Offer to purchase more than 50Gb

    Offer 50Gb / 1T / 1,5T / 2T for a price ( without having to purchase office 365) so people who actively use it can purchase more space. But those who just dump a backup full of movies or other rubbish may not want to pay for it and therefore will seek other option.

    password for specific folders would be great while syncing with so many PCs some of which may be shared between family members.

  17. Generate per-person sharing links without sending emails

    I’d like to be able to generate a sharing link without sending an email from OneDrive.com, which I can revoke later without affecting other recipients.

    Perhaps it’d be better if I can choose a descriptive name for each link (rather than using email addresses).

    Currently this can only be approximated by creating a permission bundle for each recipient, which gets the “Shared” view cluttered very quickly.

  20. Speed up Syncing - Takes forever to sync a few files when I need to shut down my PC and leave. Sorry I left Dropbox!

    SLOW SYNC - Frequently I compile files on my PC that I need to transfer to one drive, then shut that PC down and go to a different location to access them, I don’t have the nearly one hour or more it takes to upload a handful of basic files to one drive, before I need to shut down my PC and leave. Frequently I have had to shut down and leave, just to find days later all my files are not available when I arrive at my off-site location because of one drives slow sync. Yes, I have high…
