  3. In what perspective of wisdom does MS not provide the ability to either Pause uploading or Throttle back bandwidth?

    Windows 7

    I frequently have to 'Exit' local Onedrive because the upload is consuming too much bandwidth and slowing down other connected services.
    There is no ability other than exiting to achieve even a momentary relent of Onedrive's bandwidth use.

    Am I the only one that finds this lacking option completely annoying and mystifying?

  4. Delete a temporary file/photo after certain user specified duration

    There are times where I capture a photo or document on my phone that gets synced to onedrive.

    I may need this file temporarily, say one or two days and then I don't need them.

    Provide an option to specify if the just created photo or document is a permenant file or temporary file so that onedrive can purge them after the threshold

  7. please make it possible to set alert popup when user share file or folder externally

    for security it will be great to remind users before they click on share externally about any terms or conditions related to external sharing. example reminder to make sure they don't share classified documents without encryption or not share it at all using this service etc..
    this will help in case user doesn't attend training nor read policies and guidelines to be aware of what they are sharing.

  10. Fixed cookie crumb on top

    The cookie crumb folder hierarchy at the top scrolls off with the rest of the list. So to click on it to go back a folder or two you need to scroll all the way up. I propose to fix the placing of the cookie crumb bar so it can be accessed at any time wo the need to scroll up again.

  11. Cancel / differ uploading specific files

    There should be an option to cancel uploads that are in progress.

    There should also be an option to mark certain files as differed after canceling.

  12. Delete all 'Shared by Me' folders/files at once

    Currently the 'Shared by Me' view allows a user to individually select each file/folder and 'stop sharing' or 'remove link'. There is no option to use a function on multiple selected files. My 'Shared by Me' has 220+ files/folders. It's impossibly tedious to select each one and 'remove link'. Adding an group functionality for delete/stop sharing seems like a very simple and obvious solution!

  13. Windows OneDrive is very hard to use, nothing like great Google Photos.

    Windows OneDrive is very hard to use, nothing like great Google Photos.
    Please make it friendly.

    It is very annoying to have a changing album cover if there is any.
    People must be able to recognize the albums at a glance.
    How stupid to present a different picture in the album.

    We want to use Windows OneDrive photos storage.

  14. Recycle Bin - Organize Data in a Tree swith Previews

    It is IMPOSSIBLE to recover deleted items because you cannot identify the files you are trying to recover.

    It does not show them in a tree / folder view nor does it show previews.

    Without these two "views" it is impossible to figure out what you need / want to recover.

    For example, we deleted some files in a folder, how do we locate those PARTICULAR files if we cannot see the tree, we would have to know the names of the files which is IMPOSSIBLE to know especially when they are picture/image files.

    And if you want to be…

  17. A simple way to turn on and off OneDrive for home users.

    I would like to see a simple process for disabling OneDrive completely from my computer. I have absolutely no use for OneDrive. When setting up a new computer with Windows 10, you must be very careful when checking which options and buttons you elect to use. Once OneDrive is chosen you've got it for ever. I tried to get my Documents and Pictures folders under This PC unlocked from One Drive for over a month with the help of the OneDrive team. Despite my and their efforts it couldn't be done. I had to use Libraries as the working part…

  20. Hire me to work on the UX.

    There are many issues with OneDrive (TMTC) and a good UX person (someone who understands what the average human being would want, not a programmer) could sit down with developers and greatly improve the product.

    Ya'll have my email address. Looking forward to working with the team.

    P.S. TMTC - Too Many To Count
