  1. Bring back functionality of Public sharing

    The functionality of public sharing was silently removed without a believable explanation ... thats sad fact!
    I was terribly disappointed ... by decision and also by sneaky way of hidding whole thing and reasons for that.

    There are many false stories and excuses


    • Mister Douglas Pearce has marked it as something "buggy" for support to solve ... and has disabled futher voting for this matter ... thats what i call "dodge".


    • More than two months passed without any sign of activity. Onedrive as major Microsoft service isnt normaly left without support ... but in this case is nearly obvious that…

  2. Remove Email Attachment folder

    I can't stand the Email Attachments folder. So many users complain about this. We pay for this service, it is a personal drive and I want to be able to control which folders I view and which ones I do not. "It is by design", as recently received this reply from your customer service, made me even more upset. Fire your designer then and get someone from Apple.

  3. Add Default Data-Encryption to OneDrive Personal!

    Please encrypt the uploaded data by default on OneDrive Personal, like on OneDrive Professional. There should be an Encryption which could not be accessed by the MS Stuff. I don't think it is much work. And with this Feature OneDrive will be great! Actually only the transfer ist encrypted via SSL but the stored File on it now - and that is very bad

  4. More Free OneDrive Space

    I've been a Dropbox, MEGA, and Google Drive user for a long time now, and let me just make a suggestion if you're trying to compete in the cloud storage industry: GIVE MORE FREE SPACE. All three of the companies I mentioned above gives more free space than your small 5GB. Dropbox gives you plenty of ways to get more free storage, Google Drive gives you 15GB of free storage, and MEGA gives you 50GB of free storage. If you want us to start using OneDrive, (because obviously you won't let us upload anything using your OneNote mobile app unless…

  5. Unlimited Photo Storage

    It would be awesome if something like Amazon's Prime photos or Google Photos could be implemented within OneDrive, where users can upload unlimited photos. This could be with or without some sort of compression (similar to Google) to keep things from getting crazy if a lot of people started uploading RAW images. I understand OneDrive unlimited was abused in the past, but having to go to a Microsoft competitor to backup my photo library just seems like blasphemy to a life-long Microsoft fan.

  8. Undo button on OneDrive.com

    There are times when I have accidently dragged a file into a folder that I didn't mean to, or performed some actions that I shouldn't have, and would like to quickly revert the actions made.

    An undo button, similar to what's coming in Outlook.com, would be really useful.

  9. Storage Purchase Options

    I recently had my storage reduced from 10TB to 1TB. I am totally unhappy that there is no options to purchase another 1TB, 2TB, 5TB or 10TB for a small fee. I'm a Office 365 subscriber who needs large space as my demands grows. Please add these additional storage Purchase Options to give people flexibility.

  11. Add Anonymous Deposit Feature like DropBox "File requests"

    Currently, Microsoft requires every user to be logged in with a Microsoft account in order to access any OneDrive folder over the web. I understand that helps expand Microsoft's install base. However, for we users who need to provide an easy way for customers or prospective customers to give us files, this is a complete show-stopper. Even in their free plan, DropBox offers "File requests" (in the core Left navigation), which generates a link to any DropBox folder. Anyone we give that link can deposit files. DropBox asks for their name and e-mail address, but there's no validation. This is…

  13. Allow users to host podcasts with OneDrive

    Users are paying for space and bandwidth, so they should be able to host their own podcasts with OneDrive! That would entail generating an RSS feed based on content in a folder and exposing URLs to the actual files themselves.

  14. Cloud Transfer files between Microsoft Accounts

    Transfer files between Microsoft Personal and Business/Student accounts, without downloading and uploading.

    It would reduce server workload and save users bandwidth for those on capped plans.

    This could be a premium feature for those with more storage on an account with Office 365.

    Thanks
    Alex T.

  15. Automatically empty the Recycle Bin after a certain time (or storage) limit

    I tend to get a lot of files in my OneDrive Recycle Bin, most of which I had intended to delete permanently. It would be nice if I could set my Recycle Bin to automatically empty itself after a certain time (or storage) limit.

  18. Allow Copy of Folders AND files

    Allow the ability to copy folder(s) AND folder contents from the client to OneDrive. Only allowing individual files limits the usefulness of OneDrive.

    Allow comments on shared folder/files and send notification once the comment is added. This feature was available before. It's very important for team project and collaboration.
