  2. Make it possible to exclude certain folders from being included in "Photos" views. i.e. A folder named *** perhaps????

    Photos view pulls all image files including weird images that are used as backgrounds or borders on downloaded websites and images that one might want to keep but might not want to accidentally share when looking for grandchildren photos while others can see the screen. It should be possible to tell One Drive to ignore a certain folder or folders when searching for photo files to display in photo view.

  4. Unable to delete folders if contains files

    Cannot delete folder in Onedrive. We receive error message "You have to delete all the items in this folder before you can delete the folder".

    Got update that DLP policy or Retention policy is causing this issue

    We want to fix this issue by product team

  7. 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

  9. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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.…

  18. Please Show file extensions

    Show the file extensions. NEVER EVER EVER Hide extensions of known file times. It makes it impossible to see the difference between files that open with the same application

  19. Public folders in OneDrive

    I would like to have back the possibility to share folders "public" in OneDrive personal. So I can link to any document or picture in a folder (f.eks. from a web-side) and then se all documents/Pictures in the folder.
