  1. Option to fully ignore symlinks (symbolic links)

    I would normally upload source code for various projects to synchronize between my desktop and laptop however there are plenty of vendor packages which are redundant that can be symlinked and/or updated via the Internet.

    Having an option to ignore symlinked directories within onedrive would solve this issue quite easily at near zero development cost on your end. The only gotcha is synching this option between all logged in onedrive instances.

  2. Protect against accidental deletions with a "permanent" file attribute.

    Create a file attribute called "permanent" so that a OneDrive file/folder can only be deleted online with a browser, not from a OneDrive client device.

  4. OneDrive Personal - Encryption at rest

    Virtually all other cloud storage providers offer encryption at rest and OneDrive for Business does too. There seems no reason why OneDrive Personal users shouldn't also be afforded the exact same level of security, especially those of us paying a subscription for the service. Perhaps it could be made an additional benefit of an Office 365 subscription if the desire is not there to offer it to free users. However, with Microsoft's resources and apparent desire to champion security of user data, encryption at rest for OneDrive Personal feels a bizarre missing piece to the puzzle.

  5. Add local network/LAN sync so that my OneDrive Syncing PCs on my local network don't need to round trip to the cloud to share updates

    Allow OneDrive to be aware of other machines on the local network and sync changes directly between them to save the round trip to the cloud for every change

  6. 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,…

  8. Tags for files and folders

    It is a 21st century. Restrictions for folders length hierarchy is not so good. Navigate the long sub folders is not so good. Puts tags into files/folders names isn't good. Enable tags for files and folders for easily find them using just search and tags!

  10. manager

    Change the OneDrive retention and deletion process..
    OneDrive deletion process should be disabled by default. -> "If a manager is specified for the deleted account, the manager will receive an email telling them they have access to the OneDrive, and that the OneDrive will be deleted at the end of the retention period."
    The manager field is in Active Directory, on users objects.

  11. Allow sign in for multiple OneDrive personal accounts

    It's great that I can sign in to a personal OneDrive accounts and multiple Business OneDrive accounts simultaneously. I would love to be able to sign in to multiple personal accounts at once.

  13. Prevent Download - Shared files - eg: .m4a files

    The option to prevent download of shared files only works on a select few file formats. If i upload an m4a file to onedrive and set it so no one can download it, users are still able to download the file.

    Google Drive have got it right - files that cannot be played in the browser cannot be downloaded to the user's device.

  14. Update the email sent to manager when a user has been deleted to include a link to the Site Collection Owners setting.

    Update the email sent to manager when a user has been deleted to include a link to the Site Collection Owners setting.

    Including a link to the _layouts/15/mngsiteadmin.aspx would allow the manager to assign a different owner for the OneDrive of the deleted user.

  16. Ability to share OneDrive folders to users outside an organization.

    Inability to share folders to users outside of the organization makes this product of limited value. Dropbox and others have had this feature from the outset. You cannot call this a collaboration tool in the current format.

  18. Sync control on root level for OneDrive for Home usage

    As a home user, I store copies of important documents in the cloud, so I have them still available in case of e.g. fire. However I don't want those documents to be synced with every device I am using.

    My question is: Can a configuration be added to the root level folders of each account, where using the web-interface I can configure for each root folder whether the folder is allowed to be synced to a device or not. I would like to have this configuration in one place only (on the web interface), and not configure this on each…

  19. Add the possibility to add an AzureAD domain to the specific domain list for synchronization

    We would like to see the option to add AzureAD to the specific domain list, now it's only possible to add on-premise domains, but now with Intune and only azure-ad joined machines I think it would be a nice change. We use SCCM Co-management and Intune. The computers are not on-premise joined but we would like a restriction on what machines OneDrive can be synchronized. To make it work now the only option is to disable the specific domain sync but than we would lose control on what machines the synchronization can be made.
