Add the ability to disable ransomware recovery
I upload a lot of encrypted files and this feature gets triggered every time. I know what I'm doing and should have the ability to turn off the ransomware recovery "feature"
I agree, this is a problem and ridiculous.
Please allow us to disable this or at least prevent the warning once we have acknowledged it
same here. I'm forced to turn on Google sync in addition to OneDrive, in order to use cyrptmator.
It will be nice if onedrive allows users to designate some folders for the encrypted file, changes in those photos would not trigger the ransomware alert
It would be very helpful if this "security feature" could be turned off, since any compressed, zipped or otherwise password-protected file not knows, so to speak, apparently triggers an alarm. So you can not work reasonably at all!
Interestingly, no file is displayed in the opening window with the question whether I am sure that the following files are not infected.
Perhaps it can be supplemented in such a way that firstly the alarm-giving files are also actually indicated and secondly these file types released by me are stored as safe and do not release again alarm.

I hope, microsoft make a feature to deaktivate the ransomware detection
Cryptomator Files are flagged as ransomeware

I hope, microsoft make a feature to deaktivate the ransomware detection. I stored encrypted files and microsoft think it was ransomware. But is not so.
Please fix it for users encrypted files!
Yes Cryptomator user here too. This is inacceptable. Not even giving us the option to turn it off. Cancled!
Thats the normal ********* **** by Microsoft

The function is basically good. But I would like to be able to turn it off on my own responsibility. I store only encrypted files to the cloud. If OneDrive is not suitable, I have to switch to another provider.
This is why people are flocking to Linux and away from Windows. Among many other reasons, Linux allows us to configure things the way we want them, rather than being stuck with flawed decisions by Microsoft.
Change or fade away, Microsoft. I will not use One Drive until you allow encrypted files.
Please fix it.
Meh, I'm done with big tech...
it is not just the issue itself, but also microsoft's decision to deal with it in such dramatic terms.
how many people have they caused needless panic, when a simple notation that users working on encrypted files with onedrive would automatically be flagged.
and even if they do not fix the issue, what reason can there be not to at least re-word the ambiguous last splash screen in the process, a wording that has caused confusion and doubt in pretty well every thread you read on this topic.
there may be tech or business reasons for not changing the policy, but there can be no justification for the appalling way the issue is processed.
I also would like to disable the "Ransomware Protection" feature for certain folders. I keep getting windows/android notifications from the OneDrive app & e-mail warnings about files that are encrypted with Cryptomator.
Aside from this also a survey e-mail is sent after every "Ransomware" detection about the "Ransomware Protection" that doesn't even exist anymore if you click to fill in the survey.

Still not fixed?!

Please fix this soon!
I am shifting big amounts of data into cryptomator vaults. The ransomware warning, otherwise surely useful, is a big nuisance. Please allow to turn off the warnings for a limited time, or for specific folders.

This potentially stops me from being able to use the excellent third-party tool, Cryptomator. Allow us to disable this 'feature' so we can use third-party encryption tools to protect our files!
Please - the best solution is to Just allow Onedrive to be set up with Client Side Encryption (like say iDrive does).

I'm forced to use some other cloud service. Unfortunately this "feature" can't be turned off.
