  2. You cant combine storage

    It is absurd that you buy 6 Tb in Microsoft Familly and you can only use 1 Tb. In Google Drive and iCloud if you buy 6 Tb you can use 6 Tb. Not at Microsoft. Multiple emails are required and you cannot combine storage. Each day I get more disappointed with Microsoft's services.

    É um absurdo você comprar 6 Tb no Microsoft Familly e você só pode usar 1 Tb. No Google Drive e no iCloud se você comprar 6 Tb você pode usar 6 Tb. Na Microsoft não. É necessário ter vários e-mails e você não pode unir…

  5. One Drive - Device Access - Options to apply the policy to specific users.

    One Drive-Device Access-"Allow access only from specific ip address locations"- Need the option to choose the "Users" to apply the policy.

    At this moment, on this policy, it applies to all the users of the domain.

  6. retention policy

    Currently Admins are unable to alter the retention policy for files deleted from sharepoint and onedrive once they are in recyclebin and then deleted from there and kept in the Preservation Hold library (secure area), this has caused us issues with back ups as files kept there have their names altered with lots of characters making them too long for the back up task to process.

    It would be great to have the ability to change the retention on deleted items or to be able to set it to delete permanently once removed from a users recycle bin (how it…

  7. 6TB per one person and one person only. Best be in the very near future

    Let me know when you allow one person to utilize all of the 6TB at once, then I'll consider signing up. In the meantime, 1TB per person, out of 6TB, is ludicrous!

    We sent people to the Moon! How is this not possible?

  9. Add the option to exclude file types from being backed up instead of blocking

    We need the ability to exclude files from being synced. Blocking them generates errors and warnings for the end users which freak them out. We either need the ability to silently block file types or just exclude them from syncing. We have this issue specifically with Microsoft Teams generating shortcuts that then get synchronised everywhere else.

  12. Onedrive Client Type Metrics

    Please introduce a way of monitoring what type of client is used to connect to OneDrive and SharePoint libraries. (ideally somewhere like the Unified Logging or OneDrive Logging on O365)

    This and other metrics would be useful for justification for developing strategies going forward about what software to have installed on our corp wide domain.

  13. PRIVACY LOCKOUT; BRUTAL. DO NOT LINK EDUCATIONAL ACCOUNT TO PRIVATE ACCOUNT

    Hi Lucas

    As discussed today the email address xxxx@deakin.edu.au which was previously active email tied to your student account. This account we unlinked from your Dxxxx Account when it was deleted on this date: 2016-12-05.

    Dxxxx student username/emails are randomly generated and hosted on Exchange365 making it now impossible to recover this email. I would also advise the company you are dealing with that usernames unlike student ID numbers can and do get reassigned to different users after a certain period of years, this would pose a security risk and/or data breach for any data you have stored/hosted on their…

    It would be great if OneDrive storage size will be updated from 2GB to 1TB automatically when the assigned license to users are changed from F1 to E3.
    In current design, we need to change the size via PowerShell, so please change storage size automatically when the assigned license is changed.

  17. 建议onedrive个人保管库在锁定状态下依然可以同步更改

    onedrive个人保管库只能在解锁状态下才能同步更改,这个机制不太合理,当我需要在个人保管库中上传大文件时,一般都不能在20分钟(保管库自动锁定时间)内完成上传更新任务,这时个人保管库会自动锁定并停止上传,导致我在其他设备上无法看到我在保管库中修改的内容。建议修改为在锁定状态下依然可以同步更改但是不能查看,这样更好一些,

  18. Recover Onedrive files after deletion

    Dear Microsoft team,

    My files were deleted after Onedrive's freeze. I contacted support, and they informed me that it is definitive.
    Some files are very important, so Microsoft should give its customer a chance to recover them.

    Thank you.
