Stop sharing multiple files at once
Currently to stop sharing a file you have to select it, go to the properties, and stop one by one. I want a bulk change option please.

Unsharing is a pain currently. Can't believe they dont have a bulk function.

It's time to get a resolution here, thats more comforatble than those workarounds. 3 votes.
My workaround for if you want to end ALL sharing, but you will have to do it for EACH folder.
1) Synch the folders to Onedrive / Hard-drive, and tick: "Always keep on this device"
2) sort the folders by "Status" descending, so the ones that are shared are grouped at the top
3) CUT and PASTE the files to "C:/Temp" or anywhere else outside of your Onedrive
4) CUT and PASTE back to the onedrive.
After synching back, the files are no longer shared.
This has been around for a long time now. When will you be implementing it?
Please give the possibility to stop sharing for multiple objects at once!
It is a lot of work to unshare files one by one. Please create a way to do this in bulk. 3 votes for this.
It is crazy to do it one by one. Please change this. 3 Votes for this feature!

I have 384 files i need want to remove sharing access to.
I must be a joke, that i have to do this manually on every single file?

This feature should be added to the "Shared by me" view in OneDrive on the web. It should be possible to simply select multiple files and then have a "Stop sharing" button that disables all sharing, regardless on whether it was a sharing link, with specific people etc.

This would be fantastic. Just finished an assessment with students where I was the owner of each word doc. Would have been great to be able to unshare all at once instead of individually unsharing them all

Sir, Our requirement is need to stop sharing of multiple files at a time.
Right now I want to do stop sharing one by one each file.

We currently have shared 854 different folders. For us to stop sharing to one specific email address, the only way to do so is for us to go to every single of those 854 folders, check whether the relevant email address is listed as having been shared that folder, and then manually remove that email address.
This is utterly ridiculous! Surely the massive resources of Microsoft, can work out a way to remove access to an email address with just one click?!
Hope this helps someone. More Office 365/Onedrive but maybe it's very similar to just the OneDrive cloud platform. ;)
can anyone tell me if there is a solution to this suggestion as yet?
