  4. Allow Onedrive to rename extensions

    Onedrive does NOT really serve as a cloud service if I can't rename file formats!!

    If I need to DOWNLOAD a file, then rename it, then UPLOAD the same file, because Onedrive won't let me rename a file extension - it's not really a cloud service... I'd rather use dropbox.

  5. What I hate is not having option to turn off “on this day”. Don’t need you to remind me of the past.

    On web and iOS. It is very annoying I can’t log in with anyone around without the. Seeing photos that I don’t want them to see since it is right at the top. For example your girlfriend want to see the photos you just uploaded and you sign in and there are photos from you ex girlfriend from four years ago right at the top. Terrible feature you need to put an option to turn it off. The reason I use Microsoft instead of Google is because Microsoft didn’t have all these dumb features it was professional.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  13. Allow bit.ly short links

    I can't create a short link in OneDrive anymore, so I'd like to use bit.ly to create customized, short URLs with data analysis. Bit.ly customer service tells me that "Microsoft made the decision to change their account settings with Bitly and no longer allow that feature for their users until they work on some reinforced security on their website."

  15. Open file location when searching

    When searching for certain files and you get your results, it would be nice if I could be shown where this file is located on my OneDrive and have the ability to open the location where particular files are stored.

  17. 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

  20. 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.
