  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  6. 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

  7. 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

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

    Manage sharing between users within tenants


    OneDrive for Business において、テナント内のユーザー間のファイルの共有を制限したい。

    管理者によってテナント内のユーザー同士のファイル共有を制限する機能の実装をお願いします。

    Allow setting up file share restrictions to users, specifically between users within a tenant to prevent data breach. We would like to set up sharing restrictions for a file.

  13. Automatically empty the Recycle Bin after a certain time (or storage) limit

    I tend to get a lot of files in my OneDrive Recycle Bin, most of which I had intended to delete permanently. It would be nice if I could set my Recycle Bin to automatically empty itself after a certain time (or storage) limit.

  16. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. In both Search Results and Recent, provide full file location and support navigating to folder and maintaining files

    In OneDrive on the web, when I either Search or go to the Recent list, I get a list of files. However:


    1. I can't see exactly where each file is located

    2. There is no way to navigate to the folder that contains each file.

    3. I can't do most of the usual file-maintenance tasks from these views: copy, rename, move, delete. All I can do is Open (edit) and share.


    4. Can't see complete file location.


    In Search results, there is a "Location" column. However, It tells only the bottom, last or "leaf" folder. I have several similar folder structures and folders…
