  1. Allow folders to sync with one of the same name

    Why is it not possible to sync items in a folder of the same name? Being told to rename the folder each time is crazy. It is a basic Windows function. If I had a folder called e.g. 'My dog 2018' that I wanted to back up every month, i would end up with 12 folders...how is this practical? Or do I have to manually write down every file name and check it off against the other folders to ensure i have everything? Or delete the whole folder on onedrive then upload the whole new folder each time? Which would…

  2. Display the full name of the file... Google Drive is so much better...

    Display the full name of the file when you click or hover on it (Not just "Book for re....")? Why the **** do I have to tell you this?

  4. Share a file, that is already shared by folder sharing, using the already granted settings.

    I have shared a folder, docs, with person Bob. the share rules are that bob can read and write the docs folder, for 30 days.

    the docs folder has the following structure
    / docs | (the shared folder)
    / docs / notes | (a sub folder)
    / docs / notes / note1.txt (a text file)
    / docs / notes / note2.txt (a text file)
    / docs / meetings | (a sub folder)
    / docs / meetings / meetings 1.txt (a text file)
    / docs / meetings / meetings 2.txt (a text file)

    meetings 2.txt was just created, and i want…

  5. 关于OneDrive的免费存储空间少的反馈

    不说是达到百度云的2TB么至少有个Google移动存储的15GB也好。不然5GB对于存了几年照片的老用户太不友好了。

  7. I should be able to "Move" the Desktop folder into Onedrive folder, (like other folders can), so it is synced.

    Apparently, Windows 10 does not allow the Desktop in C:\Users[user name]\Desktop to be moved (via Properties/Location), to the OneDrive folder like all other folders can, (e.g. Documents, Pictures, Videos, etc.). If I am wrong, please advise, but I've been told this by more than one technical advisor. Therefore, if my hard drive were to fail, I have all my other data files in the Onedrive cloud, but I lose all of my Desktop files. Please advise

  9. Filtering of data should not affect work of others working in same sheet. Feature is already there in Google Sheets as temporary filter

    Filtering of data should not affect work of others working in same sheet. Feature is already there in Google Sheets as temporary filter.
    Because of problem of filtering data many people are preferring google drive over onedrive.

    حسابك غير متوفر الآن
    ربما تم حظر OneDrive أو ملف التعريف مؤقتاً وذلك نظراً لزيادة نسبة نقل البيانات عبر الشبكة. في هذه الحالة، ستتم إزالة الحظر بعد 24 ساعة.

    ربما تم قطع الاتصال بهذا الحساب أيضًا بسبب نشاط مريب أو انتهاك اتفاقية خدمات Microsoft. إذا كنت تعتقد أن المشكلة ليست كذلك، فاطلب إعادة النظر في المشكلة من خلال الاتصال بدعم العملاء. ومع ذلك، إذا اكتشف دعم العملاء محتوى يمثل انتهاكاً، فستحتاج إلى إزالة جميع المحتويات التي تنتهك الاتفاقية في غضون  48 ساعة وإلا سيتم إيقاف حسابك.

  11. Leave My Photos Alone!

    Message To Microsoft:
    Stop "handling" my photos without permission! I don't want OneDrive making albums, applying tags , or doing anything at all with my photos! I am the editor of my photos, not some algorithm!!! No algorithm can EVER assign the correct tag or name to a photo - they are far too personal and individual to ever be subjected to that! At the very least, you should give us the ability to turn on/off any features of that nature!

  12. Device managament

    Please make it possible to disconnect a device from my OneDrive account with deleting all files on that particular device. For example it will be very useful if I don't have access to that particular device anymore and I want to prevent others to access it. Many of us could face a situation when our device was stolen or lost, corporate or sold or many other reasons.

  14. File sorting for off-line files

    Yes, I am wishing to be able to alphabetically sort off-line files. I don’t see any way to do this. Is it possible or is it in the works?

  15. To show folder tree branch unfolded when moving a file

    When moving a file, it would be very useful to show, on the right-pane folder tree, the branch where the source folder is located already unfolded.
    In addition, it would be also useful that the last folder chosen would be shown on the right-pane for at least a limited span of time.

  16. Plans for folks who already have MS Office Suite

    Monthly/ yearly plan for 1tb and 5tb that is for people who already have the MS Office Suite. That is to say no 365 included. I have no interest in 365, I get it for free at UMt, Missoula. Though honestly it's not something I would buy for myself.

  17. Add more subscription options

    Please, add more subscription storage options! A lot of people don't need office. And you have only one option of 50 Gb without it which is ridiculous!

  18. At the time of this post, there are 1500 "ideas" that reference download speeds with almost NO responses because they don't have 100 votes

    This is ridiculous!! My laptop is running Windows 10 and has taken 9 days to sync 20gb from my Onedrive to my laptop and still has 2.2gb to download before complete. I have kept the laptop from sleeping, used a wired connection, checked that all path names are as short as possible and tried to remove all duplicate files. I have also run several different speed tests to confirm that I am downloading at 30mbps. Even if I was only downloading at half that speed, it should have been done long ago. Onedrive support has been no support at all…

  20. Make an app that lets you remotely see what's been synced to a specific device and add more syncs and things. Remote sync

    Remote sync choose what to sync to a device you have left somewhere and view sync progress
