    Last week we announced a new feature called Personal Vault that will be available soon for OneDrive consumer accounts. See this blog post for more details.

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/blog/2019/06/25/onedrive-personal-vault-added-security-onedrive-additional-storage/

    We have no plans to bring Personal Vault to our Commercial customers at this time, but continue to make investments in advanced security features that are unique to the Commercial service.

  2. When deleting and O365 Buisness user, make it easy to move the files/folders to another user.

    When an employee that uses OneDrive for Business leaves the organization there should be an option to move their files to another employee (superior, replacement, temporary, etc.).

    Instead of having to download and then reupload the files to another user, it should be an option during the user deletion to move the files.

    We recently added the ability to transfer ownership to another user when deleting a user’s account from AAD from the M365 admin portal. If no entry is provided, the default will transfer to the manager. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/retention-and-deletion

    The manager or newly assigned owner will have the ability to sync that content or download and then move to a shared library or their own OneDrive.

  4. Block Up/Downloading Specific File Types

    The "OneDrive for Business Deny List of File Types for Sync" feature was recently released, however it prevents files from being uploaded only when using the OneDrive Sync client. The same files can still be uploaded using the Web View. This means Administrators STILL DON'T have the ability to define a list of file types that will be actively blocked from up/downloading, while Microsoft if claiming so.

  5. Ability for OneDrive Admins to Flag Folders as "Do Not Sync"

    Ability for OneDrive Administrators to flag some folders in individual users cloud based OneDrive for Business libraries as “do not sync” so that the end-user cannot check them in the Next Gen Sync Client (NGSC) for synchronization to their local machine. The NGSC should honor that attribute and show the folder as “greyed out” – possibly with a hover over pop-up message stating that the folder cannot be synchronized locally because of IT policy.

    Options should be available for bulk application to all users OneDrive folders by specifying a folder name (or folder name pattern) to be flagged as non-synchronizable,…

    Can you please tell us more about what you are looking for? What do you mean by “zero knowledge cloud storage”? Thank you.

  8. Encryption at rest for personal onedrive

    Please please enable encryption at rest for personal onedrive accounts too. This is the only thing missing here. I will be forced to move to Dropbox if encryption at rest is not available for onedrive personal

  9. Transfer ownership of a shared folder

    How to transfer the ownership of a shared folder? I created and shared one, and want to leave all the files with my friend and disconnect myself from the folder. I want her to become the owner (the folder becoming a natural part of her OneDrive collection). How do I (or we) do that ?

  12. Allow OneDrive KFM to work with folder redirected folders

    Currently (OneDrive client version 18.131.0701.004) Known Folder Migration will not work with known folders that have been redirected. When this is configured, the end user sees "The <folder name> folder contains other important folders and isn't supported for file protection". It seems to want all known folders to be located in their default, local location (C:\Users&lt;username>\folder) and will not migrate/redirect if they're already being redirected.

    The overwhelming majority of enterprise (and smaller) orgs do not store data on local workstations, and I don't see any use case for KFM because of this limitation.

  13. Shares expiration after X days for all sharing levels (Public, New External, Existing External, ...)

    Hello everyone,

    For security reasons, I think it would be interesting to be able to limit all the shares proposed by OneDrive in time.

    Today, we can define the number of days after which a share expires only when we configure OneDrive to the most permissive level: Share with everyone.

    Why not allow this expiration notion for other levels of sharing?

  14. Pooled Storage option for OneDrive Premium Users.

    5 TB total, 1 TB per person is great....but my wife and I share a Premium account. We have 1 heavily used account and 4 at 0% utilization. We share an account to centralize our pictures make for easier search and management of our files. Please give the option to pool the storage so we can take full advantage of the storage available to our account.

  16. Increase the free storage

    Giving only 5 GB for free on OneDrive is the worst idea. Google Drive offers 15 GB for free then why Microsoft's OneDrive doesn't? If 15 GB is not possible then give at least 10 GB of free storage! 5 GB is not sufficient for any one. Also Google Drive offers unlimited photos and videos upload on high quality, OneDrive also compromises in that part too! So sad to see how world's most richest man consume his money on his own fans & customers.

  17. OneDrive for Business local sync - preventing deletion of files from Sharepoint

    Allow sync folders for local users with onedrive for business but dont allow them to delete or change locally the files/folders only on website/sharepoint team.

    This is a urgent configuration thath should be allowed to setup because we cannot controll locally the same way we control on the sharepoint, and prevent users to delete files accidentally.

    Thanks.

  19. Delete local files and stop syncing after being removed from group

    When a user has marked a library for syncing after they are removed from the group no clean-up occurs and onedrive for business clients throws error.
    Overview:
    • removed from group
    • one drive client threw up error after 5-10 mins saying couldn't sync
    • manually removed sync location via one drive client
    • folder was left on pc
    • files i had opened and that where synced still available
    • had to manually delete folder

    Adding and removing access to groups/sites is a common task and means users are left to manually clean-up everytime they are removed and documents…
