  1. All the shortcut icons become blank when using Files On-Demand

    ファイル オンデマンド機能利用時にショートカット アイコンがすべて白紙になる。

    All the shortcut icons become blank when using Files On-Demand


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business にてファイル オンデマンド機能を使用して、ファイルを右クリックし、"空き容量を増やす" にてクラウド上にのみデータを置いた場合、同期フォルダー上のショートカット アイコンの表示がすべて白紙のアイコンになります。
    "このデバイス上で常に保持する" にて、ファイルをローカル上に保持した場合は、ショートカット アイコンが表示されますが、一度でもファイルを右クリックし、"空き容量を増やす" を実行すると、再度ローカル上で保持しても白紙の状態のまま戻すことができなくなります。
    白紙の状態だと、ショートカット アイコンがどの種類のファイルであるのか識別が難しいため、ファイル オンデマンド機能にて空き容量を増やした場合でも、Word であれば "Word" のアイコン、"画像" であれば "写真" のアイコンのように表示される状態が保持されるよう機能改善をお願いします。

    When selecting “Free up space” in Files On-Demand to put files back to online only, all the shortcut icons on the Sync folder become blank. If you selected "Always keep on this device" and keep your files at local, the shortcut icons are displayed as normal. However, once you right-click the file and select “Free up space”, the shortcut icons become blank…

  2. 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…

  4. remove 4gb download limit for folder

    Please remove the 4gb folder download limit. It is a pain especially when you are sharing a lot of trip pictures :)

  5. Ugly black bar at the top

    Recent UI updates to OneDrive.com came with a very ugly, huge alien black bar at the top. It doesn't fit with the rest of the page and muted tones at all. I figured I'd get used to it but it still looks like something out of 1997, just a "wtf?" decision by the UI team. Makes me wish there was an alternative without this amateur lapse in design judgement, and you know, there is. Your entire competition. I just wouldn't want to switch over something as nitpicky as this, I'd like the whole UI to live up to it's level.

  7. 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.

  8. DNG preview

    Please, allow us to view DNG image files within OneDrive. It would be awesome to have support for all kind of RAW files (Sony's .awr in my case) but DNG is an open format and probably easy to support.

    I hope for an improvement in the Shared librarys' site display setting


    ■Description(内容):
    弊社で OneDrive for Business を日々利用しています。
    OneDrive for Business の画面に共有ライブラリがあり、複数名での保存域への切り替えも用意に行えるからです。
    しかしながら、現時点では共有ライブラリに表示される条件は "Office Graph" により自動検出されるため任意に設定ができません。
    そのため自身が所属するグループが意図通りに表示されない場合があり、利用する上で不便です。
    共有ライブラリに表示される設定について機能拡張を要望します。
    Our company uses OneDrive for Business daily.
    This is because there is a shared library screen in OneDrive for Business, and also it is easy to switch to the save area where multiple users can save.
    However, currently the condition for displaying in the shared library is detected automatically by "Office Graph" and we cannot make the setting ourselves.
    As a result there are times when the…

  10. Make API for Shared folders a lot better

    You are able to Access the shared folders by you and others with "https://api.onedrive.com/v1.0/drive/shared" and access each of the elements by /drive/items/{id}

    What I miss:
    - Possibility to upload to folders shared by others that I have write access to.
    - Possiblity to list the permissions for each item (OneDrive.com uses /API/2/GetPermissions)
    - Possibility to Add/delete permissions as well

    working on it  ·  Ryan Gregg responded

    We haven’t documented the /shared API because we’re still working on making it work better. We’re working on expanding support for more sharing concepts including those you have listed.

  11. Browser Bookmark Sync

    Make it possible to sync favories/bookmarks from any browser e.g. Firefox or Chrome so that I can sync my favorites from another browser than IE to my Windows Phone.
    Also give us the possibility to manage/browse the favorites on the OneDrive Page.

  12. Bring back a file's name and upload percentage to the upload menu.

    The new design adopted by OneDrive has made it harder for those users who need to track the uploading rate of their files.

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. Bring back functionality of Public sharing

    The functionality of public sharing was silently removed without a believable explanation ... thats sad fact!
    I was terribly disappointed ... by decision and also by sneaky way of hidding whole thing and reasons for that.

    There are many false stories and excuses


    • Mister Douglas Pearce has marked it as something "buggy" for support to solve ... and has disabled futher voting for this matter ... thats what i call "dodge".


    • More than two months passed without any sign of activity. Onedrive as major Microsoft service isnt normaly left without support ... but in this case is nearly obvious that…

  17. Remove Email Attachment folder

    I can't stand the Email Attachments folder. So many users complain about this. We pay for this service, it is a personal drive and I want to be able to control which folders I view and which ones I do not. "It is by design", as recently received this reply from your customer service, made me even more upset. Fire your designer then and get someone from Apple.

  18. Add Default Data-Encryption to OneDrive Personal!

    Please encrypt the uploaded data by default on OneDrive Personal, like on OneDrive Professional. There should be an Encryption which could not be accessed by the MS Stuff. I don't think it is much work. And with this Feature OneDrive will be great! Actually only the transfer ist encrypted via SSL but the stored File on it now - and that is very bad

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

  20. 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.
