    Maybe worst of it: there is not a single status comment from the MS team on this "hot" issue for more than a year. That's just poor customer support!
    Wonder why my company has chosen to use MS to supply a cloud solution...?!?

    Wow, this is just entering the realm of ridiculous at this point. How incompetent does a team have to be to let this bug persist for so long?!

    Why is this folder appearing in my onedrive? I delete it, it comes back. I delete it, it comes back. I am at war with this folder.

    @Tobi No man, hahah, you're funny... this is just where customer ideas and requests go to die a miserable slow death...

    It would be fine (and necessary in my opinion) to have an option to turn off the auto creation of predefined folders. Every time i delete the two folders "Dokumente" and "Anlagen" (german names, might be "documents" and "attachments" in english), they reappear again. That is an absolute annoyance and prevent me from having a clean folder structure and a good overview.

    Now they are requiring email to vote... they don't like our angry voting...

    This is crazy... its like its more aggressive now. The folder shows up constantly now, all the time, I delete, it appears, I delete, it appears.
