  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…

  5. Add to my OneDrive for View Only shared folders

    Currently only folders which have been shared with edit permission can be "Added to my OneDrive" to allow sync.

    It would be good if this could be done for View Only folders as well.

  6. Import to OneDrive from Dropbox, iCloud & Co.

    Import data with a share Link from Dropbox or iCloud to OneDrive, so you don't have to download and upload it again, especially when the data is big.

  8. Allow Copy files from shared folder to personal folder without downloading and uploading again

    I've just received a shared folder from a photography company, they have all the files for my English club and gave me the OneDrive link yesterday. But I have to download it all (10GB in total) and upload it again to my personal folder (because in my OneDrive, I shared a folder with my English club to work). That's extremely time-wasting !

    I think you should allow/enable the function of copy files from shared folder to personal folder, to make it more comfortable for users.

  10. Shared items

    Multiple ways to view shares; By file, by person its shared with. Ability to remove shared permissions in multiple files at once rather than one at a time or remove all files shared with someone. Make it easy and user friendly to modify shares. If I want to change a write edit to read only for example.

  13. Allow comments on shared folder/files and send notification once the comment is added

    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.

  14. Allow more than 10GB files

    Allow files of any size. My PPT, excel and outlook files has more than 10GB. I cannot upload these files, creating a high limitation to a full cloud experience

  15. LINUX - backup your websites, blogs, forums

    most people buy webhosting on LINUX platforms because its cheaper but they need backup solutions and OneDrive could be IT. Millions of users of Ubuntu, CentOS 7 and others would be potential Microsoft clients t backup their VPS servers.

  16. more storage plan options

    you all should offer more storage plan options for heavy users like me, say like, you have the 1tb plan, you should offer a 2 or 3tb plan so we can use these services the way we want without worrying about running out of storage but only limit the storage photo and document storage

  17. Additional Video Playback Support

    It would be nice if OneDrive supported more video containers/codecs. More specifically MKV container. It's not widely used by companies but I'm sure there is a myriad of OneDrive users who do have content in those formats. It's a feature that Google Drive Supports

  18. Allow opening parent folder from within Office Online

    Allow users to open the parent folder by right-clicking the parent folder at the top of any Word, PowerPoint, or Excel online file in OneDrive. Currently, there is no right-click option: if you select it, you are redirected from the file you are working on to its parent folder. This is not helpful at all. Allow us to right-click if we choose too: otherwise, I have to be using the Chrome browser, duplicate the tab, and then click on the link to the parent folder and sometimes then I'll see notifications that I'm editing my own file after I leave.…

  20. Allow uploading of file folders whose name already exists, but which contain new files.

    In Windows 10, I can copy a file folder to another directory where the same folder already exists, and Windows will only copy the files that are not in the target directory. I am then given the option of overwriting or skipping existing files (or saving copy). In OneDrive the program will NOT ALLOW this function, as it only accepts uploads when the file folder does not exist. This makes uploading MUCH MORE DIFFICULT
    than the same operation in Windows 10. Basically you need to delete the target folder and start all over again. Please fix!!!!!!!!!!!
