  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Please come up with 100gb & 200gb plan options

    Please come up with 100gb & 200gb plan options -- don't need a TB and Amazon has some great options that you don't.

  7. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Skip file option for uploading

    When you upload files that are already uploaded, onedrive.com will show 2 options, to replace the file or to keep both.

    These 2 options can also be done for all files with the problem. Check the screenshot here: http://1drv.ms/1r2sNSV

    I wish there was a third option where I can cancel uploading all the files that are already there leaving behind the ones that haven't been uploaded. To cancel uploading files I have to manually cancel each and every file.

    You might ask why am I uploading files again. Well, more often than not, some files get uploaded while others don't…

    Hi, can you tell us more about what you mean by advanced search? Thank you.

  14. Add option to copypaste images in Office Online

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business 上の画像ファイルを Office Online に貼り付けできるようにして欲しい

    Add option to copypaste images in Office Online
    ***************
    Word Online にて画像ファイルを添付するとき、ローカル PC 上のファイルから参照する必要がある。
    OneDrive for Business 上の画像ファイルを貼り付ける際は事前にローカル PC 上にダウンロードする必要があるため、手間がかかる。
    OneDrive for Business 上の画像ファイルを Office 365 上で貼り付ける機能を提供して欲しい。

    Every time we attach images in Word Online, we have to go to local file to find it. To copypaste images that is on OneDrive for Business, we have to download it fist to local PC and is pretty time consuming. Add option to copypaste images directly from OneDrive for Business to Office Online.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  16. Enable Cortana to use OneDrive music to play on Harman/Kardon Invoke

    I really want to be able to play the music that I have stored on my OneDrive on my Harman/Kardon Invoke.
    Groove integration would also be nice, then I can play Groove playlists on my Invoke.

  17. Implement resumable uploads

    I think I speak for everyone here when I say that we're sick and tired of seeing "Oops. An error occurred" on our screen when we try to upload files. I'm using OneDrive for backup and this has happened numerous times, at one point when my upload status for a given file was at 95%. Implementing resumable uploads will save users time and bandwidth should they come across this problem as constantly as I do.

    Google Drive does it, Box does it, why not OneDrive?

  18. 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…

  19. Better description for sync status

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    同期の完了について

    Better description for sync status
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    同期フォルダーの状態が全て"同期済み" となっているが、同期クライアントが"処理中です" の状態は、ユーザーが同期の確認をする際に同期フォルダーと OneDrive for Business との同期が完了していると誤認識してしまう恐れがあるため、わかりやすい表示に変更を希望いたします。

    When all the sync folders are in “Synced” status but at the same time the sync client is in “Working on it” status, it seems like the sync between sync folder and OneDrive for Business have already completed and it might confuse users.
    For that reason, please change the descriptions of the status to more user friendly and understandable.

  20. Allow Groove Music App to select a shared Music Folder for playback

    I have 3 separate family users on one PC. My main user account has all my music synced to one Drive Music folder and groove music app finds the music and plays it. I have shared the music folder with the other 2 users who have added the shared folder to their one drive accounts. All has synced fine. The other 2 users cannot however choose the shared music folder in their groove app as it is not the default Music folder set up by one drive. Is there a way I can get Groove to recognise the shared music…
