  2. 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 ?

    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.

  5. 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.

  6. Remote wipe of personal OneDrive

    Add options to manage computers connected to the account, allowing to delete all content from a lost computer (force remove/delete is required).

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

  9. Automatically delete downloaded files upon signing out from OneDrive app

    I think it would be important for OneDrive team to enable automatic deletion of downloaded files upon signing out from OneDrive app.

    First, the current OneDrive's approach may not be in line with EU General Data Protection Regulation (requiring data protection by design). Second, in this area, OneDrive can have a competitive disadvantage against Google Drive's File Stream app.

  10. Have an alternative means to contact the Onedrive support team other than the 'email'.

    Currently there seems to be only one way to get in touch with the Onedrive support team. I can log in to onedrive.com to write down what the problem is in the feedback form, but it does not get sent for some reason.

    Shouldn't there be an alternative mode of getting support in case the probem users experience also affects their ability to get support by sending 'feedback' via their account?

  11. stop annoying "follow up" calls

    got a call today from a microsoft rep asking me if my onedrive syncing problem had been resolved. So I checked. No, I said, looks like it's still having the problem. Does he address the problem? NO!!!! "We're not trained in onedrive," he says, "you have to go back to email support." WHAT!!!??? Why does microsoft have someone call to check on me who's not trained in the thing they're checking on?? Oh, yeah. microsoft is evil.

  12. Silent KFM not working when there is a "problem", but wont tell the user or the admin.

    We've been testing out OneDrive KFM, and its not working when there is a problem with one of the know folders, it could be a Symlink or "illegal" file type, .pst etc.
    It would be nice to have a dashboard that wrote these errors from the deployment, so we could take action on it, instead of not knowing why it isn't deploying.

  14. SHIP A PHYSICAL BACKUP OF DRIVE FOR A FEE, AUDIO SAFE

    EASY BACKUPS ON DURABLE THUMB DRIVE. OR SOME KIND OF AUDIO STORAGE. REMEMBER THE TRS-80 TAPE RECORDERS? DIDNT THEY WORK BY AUDIO? COULDNT A HARMONIC STORAGE BE COMPARED TO A STANDARD TO PROVE AUTHENTICITY? LAYER THE FREQUENCIES AND SHIFT LAYERS SLIGHTLY. THE WHOLE THING WOULD BE SAFE OR SHOW TAMPERING IF IT WAS.

  17. Service-by-Service Enablement of Multifactor Authentication

    I would like to enable Multi-factor authentication, but am I mistaken in that is an all-or-nothing proposition? I would like the ability to turn on MFA just for OneDrive... I don't want to turn it on and then have to mess with App Passwords, enforcement of MFA when trying to use my Xbox, or even Outlook.com for that matter. I would like to apply MFA on a service-by-service basis, as I need sit based upon my usage, where I may/may not have sensitive information, etc.

    Can you consider this enhancement, please? Or is it available nad I just haven't looked…

    Change directory to be features!

  19. Activity Log

    OneDrive should have an activity log to track file changes (e.g. new file, renaming/deleting of files). Dropbox has implemented years ago.
