  2. Option for OneDrive to Skip Backup of Select Folders, without deleting them from our computers.

    Folders like ".git", "tmp", "cache" should never be backed up. They are easily regenerated and there is no logical reason to backup these folders ever. These folders need to be skipped.

    Currently we have the option to not backup certain folders but they will be deleted from our computers if we do. How about allow us to keep the folder on our computers and OneDrive...simply ignores it.

  4. Option to set one specific folder "Always keep on this device" in intune and GPO

    It would be great if admins can set the value "always keep on this device" for a specific folder in the OneDrive of all users in the company.

    We can use this for example to place UE-V files.

    If possible, can it be set with a GPO or Intune or both.

    i seem name is the main pre-attract point to choose o drive from many.
    Since computers' offline drive such as hard drive or total offline drives' name My Computer, online drive must be My Drive from One Drive.
    thanks for your time...stay safe...keep safe...

  6. Please do not make folder automatically on my OneDrive

    Some apps including Windows apps, or OneDrive site as well, they often make folders in my OneDrive folder. I do not want that. And I do not understand why do they make folders even though I never granted any authority to them.

    I have been reporting this issue for couple of years but you never listened. I know this is not a major issue, but you should fix this because this irritates not only me but the user who does not speak up while experiencing the problem, and they do not know how to say.

    Simply put, do not make…

  7. Add a report that shows all shared files for all users in a tenancy (User, Shared File Name, Who the file is shared with).

    Our Information Governance Dept have requested a report as above so that they can keep tabs on what users are sharing from OneDrive.

  8. 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?

  9. Make 1TB storage available worldwide without Office 365

    Currently only able to get 100GB storage in the Middle East. Since I already have Office 2019, no need and don't want Office 365, but do need more OneDrive storage. Why no 1TB available? Policy?

  10. Personal Vault Should Be Added To Business Subscriptions

    Personal Vault adds a level of security access that assures users of a secondary authentication for the most confidential files. While OneDrive for Business has very good security, there is still a need for a dedicated folder like personal vault. In fact, having the option to convert various folders into personal vault folders would be even better. The visual of a Personal Vault folder is very good and it would be great to have it for more premium subscriptions.

  11. please do not automatically delete user's onedrive account when use is still active

    We found some aged (5+ years) onedrive accounts are automatically deleted by system while the user is still active. System would send a notification message to his/her manager saying the onedrive account is deleted on active directory and the data will keep for 30 days, just like when we actually delete some resigned employees' account.
    Can we change this if it's by design? User/Manager got confused!!!!

  12. Storage

    On our subscription, we have 6TB - 1TB for 6 people each. We are only using 2, but there is no way to combine storage so it would be 2TB on one account, and the rest are 1TB each, now only 5 accounts.

    About OneDrive sync client error detection accuracy


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive 同期クライアントのエラーの検出機能の精度が低いため、エラーを検出しても詳細が表示されない。
    そのため、エラーが発生するたびに多岐に渡るトラブルシューティングの実施が必要となり、不便である。
    問題が特定できれば、対処の工数も減るため、エラーの検出機能の精度を上げて欲しい。
    The error detection feature of OneDrive sync client has a low accuracy rate, and details are not displayed even when an error is detected.
    As a result lots of troubleshooting steps need to be implemented whenever an error occurs which is very inconvenient.
    If we can identify the problem, the number of steps to resolve it will be reduced, so we hope that the accuracy of the error detection feature can be improved.

  14. Allow group to view relevant OneDrives for Business

    This one is coming from education and I've seen this question asked countless times on education tech forums.

    I would love to migrate my student user areas to OneDrive for business.

    Currently, our locally hosted user drives can be viewed by teaching staff (read only). This is imperative for a number of reasons including safeguarding - it is essential to be able to quickly view the contents of a student drive in cases where student safety is in question, especially if it's storage accessible outside of the school. Another requirement to access student areas is to collect and monitor work,…
