  2. Display the number of files and folders in a folder and its subfolders

    I would appreciate to have the ability to see in the properties how many files and folders does a selection of files and folders contain (files and folders selected, plus all the files and folders in all the subfolders of the selection) on the website, like it is possible on Windows: today, you can only know how many elements you have ticked, or how many files and folders does only one folder contain (without including the files and folders in the subfolders).

    Thank you for sharing this. We don’t have specifics to share, but wanted to provide an update that we are looking into this for future updates.

  3. bad file check

    Hi:
    I post one question a while ago (http://goo.gl/QFCpdO).
    I didnt figure it out, and dont plan to spend more time on it.

    But then, I found one of your competitor having this tool called bad file check (https://www.dropbox.com/badfilescheck). I think that is a good idea, and if MS also develop one, users can then use this tool to do the self check.

    Cheers

  4. Let me specify which file extensions to be handled by the text editor

    I’d like to add or remove file extensions that should be handled by the text editor.

    For example, I have many source code files that are currently not opened in the text editor. (I don’t need syntax highlighting.)

    Please DO NOT MERGE this idea with another. I’m NOT asking for the ability to change file extension while renaming files.

  7. can you insert a password protection in the access to OneDrive by other application?

    I noticed that with the latest update of OneDrive application, you can put a security pin to prevent unauthorized access to onedrive app, but if I enter in the office app I can however view all office documents in onedrive without required no password entry and the same thing happens to the photos on onedrivethat are opened using the app photo, going in the album you can access without a password for all photos contained in onedrive ... anyone able to circumvent a protection system as well ... hope you do an update to password protect access to onedrive also…

  10. independent folder views

    I would like to have independent views for folders on Onedrive.com. An example would be - i'd like to keep my main list of folders in the "detailed view", and once i click on my "Pictures" folder, switch to the "thumbnail view." however, if i click on "Documents," it should be "detailed view." right now the minute i change the view (detailed or thumbnail," ALL folders get switched to that view.

  13. 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.

  14. Allow OCR for Scanned Documents (images/pdf)... and index results for directory level searches.

    Allow OCR for Scanned Documents (images/pdf)... and index results for directory level searches.

    I want a "paperless house" which involves scanning all my paperwork, it can then be auto-uploaded to a neat onedrive.com folder. Great but how do I find specific documents once i've uploaded 10,000?

    I wish to be able to search my entire directory or drive for image/PDF scans featuring the word "Tax", for example.

    At this time OCR work very well within documents but the same search at the directly only returns text based document results.

    OCR'ing and indexing the results for every document is no small…

  16. An indication on existing links to know if Recipients need to sign in option was used

    I have been unable to find any way to determine if the option "Recipients need to sign in with a Microsoft account" was used when sharing some items. I see the items listed when navigating to the OneDrive "Shared > Shared by me" screen. I can check the box in the upper right corner of an item and in the properties pane at the right under Sharing, I can see a persons name listed. I can click on that name and a modal Share dialog appears over the screen. Under the person's name there is a drop down box that…

  17. Implement resumable uploads

    I think I speak for everyone here when I say that we're sick and tired of seeing "Oops. An error occurred" on our screen when we try to upload files. I'm using OneDrive for backup and this has happened numerous times, at one point when my upload status for a given file was at 95%. Implementing resumable uploads will save users time and bandwidth should they come across this problem as constantly as I do.

    Google Drive does it, Box does it, why not OneDrive?

  18. Does anyone know how to get more than 1TB space on onedrive? There are no plans if anyone wants to get more than 1TB space for e.g. 5TB.

    Many users like me need more than 1TB online storage for backing up massive data files. It would be good to have options for more than 1TB or atleast an option to contact microsoft for quotes on above 1TB.
