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"
Cryptomator Files are flagged as ransomeware. Updated to 1TB paln and now i get f***d by the dection feature as i try to upload 150GB cryptomator files.

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.
A "feature" that cannot be switched off is not a feature but a LIMITATION. I pay for my files to be stored AS THEY ARE and I CANNOT use the function I'M PAYING FOR with this "ransomware ********". Fix this IMMEDIATELY by disabling it or at least allowing me myself to disable it.
this feature is flawwed
please fix this!
Be sure to integrate an option to switch off! If files are deliberately encrypted, there are permanent incorrect warnings. It's really annoying.

I'm using Cryptomator. The OneDrive ransomware detection is really no help. I'm an experienced user, I have a strong password. Please let ME decide to turn protection off.
