  1. please do not decrease the storage limit

    Do not decrease the storage of 15 GB to 5GB from free users. It will loose costumers. I'm Planning on moving to Google Drive too.And also it would lead many business men, private users to get themselves in trouble. That will definitely make you an huge economical loss.

  3. Do not change the storage

    Storage is the most important for the people in the developing world now. And the storage is the most we care. One of the cloud apps that has a copious storage is One Drive- with many advantages and friendly interface which is very easy to use. I am very excited!
    However, I have received recently a letter about reducing the storage from 15GB to 5GB and it makes me very disapointed. As you know, users don't want a huge and strage change which gives them disadvantages! So I hope you WILL NOT REDUCE CAPACITY OF ONE DRIVE!
    I am looking…

  4. Need Performant Web &| Client Utility

    Navigation between folders and operations such as moving files and folders on the web site is way too slow. We need it fast or better yet a windows app that allows quick manipulation of OneDrive content.

  7. Times Downloaded

    It would be nice to know how many times a file has been downloaded, for example, from the public folder

  8. Markdown Rendering

    Support for formatted markdown of .md files. At the moment OneDrive.com can perform syntax markup when opening the text file. I would like to see OneDrive render .md files and have split view (editor/viewer) of .md files.

  9. Direct Web Upload

    This is the feature of the era and need to make it available immediately because this feature will save entire time of downloading and then uploading. In another words this is SERVER to SERVER UPLOADING through direct link. Hope you understand...

  10. Add One Time Usage Share Links with Password Protection

    Add the ability to create links that expire after a certain amount of uses or after a time frame has expired. Also, allow the ability to create special passwords on files or folders. This will assist in sharing more sensitive information in a safer way than email.

  11. Have OneDrive online Music folder sync with the system Music Library folder and NOT be a separate folder on my device. Same with Pictures.

    It would be great if there were the option to choose to have the OneDrive online Documents, Music, and Pictures folders sync with the device's system Documents, Music, and Pictures Library folders.

    I realize not everyone wants these folders to have identical content, but I do.

    And. I would also like the option of having OneDrive sync to these system Library folders even if they have been moved off the C drive.

  14. Versioning

    We really need versioning. It's a must. I want to switch totally from Dropbox plan. Maybe an official position about this feature if it's in plan or not and how long we will have to wait.

  15. Photo Sharing needs access to Contacts for easier sharing

    Instead of having to type in email addresses from memory and picking them out one by one why not have a link to your Contacts and then checkmark them.

  16. Allow Onedrive to rename extensions

    Onedrive does NOT really serve as a cloud service if I can't rename file formats!!

    If I need to DOWNLOAD a file, then rename it, then UPLOAD the same file, because Onedrive won't let me rename a file extension - it's not really a cloud service... I'd rather use dropbox.

  17. Allow opening parent folder from within Office Online

    Allow users to open the parent folder by right-clicking the parent folder at the top of any Word, PowerPoint, or Excel online file in OneDrive. Currently, there is no right-click option: if you select it, you are redirected from the file you are working on to its parent folder. This is not helpful at all. Allow us to right-click if we choose too: otherwise, I have to be using the Chrome browser, duplicate the tab, and then click on the link to the parent folder and sometimes then I'll see notifications that I'm editing my own file after I leave.…
