  1. Folder names when using the backup function of the sync client

    *English follows Japanese

    同期クライアントのバックアップ機能を利用した際のフォルダー名について
    Folder names when using the backup function of the sync client


    ■Description(内容):
    同期クライアントのバックアップ機能の対象にしたフォルダーが、本来英語であったものが日本語に自動変換される。例) Documents → ドキュメント
    PC にて特殊な設定をしていることもあるため、バックアップ機能時に任意で変更できるよう機能の拡充を希望します。
    When folders have been backed up by the sync client, previously English names are automatically changed into Japanese
    For example, “Documents” is changed to ドキュメント
    Since there are settings that depend on this on the PC, we want to be able to change this behavior when using the backup function.

  3. No Tool for unlocking OneDrive folder in case of motherboard failure

    Onedrive was not online due to non availability of internet and user kept on storing data in onedrive folder installed on Windows laptop/desktop and motherboard has failed. Tried to connect hard drive to another laptop but could not access OneDrive folder. Other folders on same drive are accessible. Tried to sync with same O365 user id and password but in vain.
    It means Microsoft does not have a tool to restore the encrypted (protected) one drive folder. It has happened with 3 users in 2 months. Please provide tool for restoration in such cases (if the ticket is raised to…

  5. Creating a Static Link which does not include Personal Information when sharing files.

    OneDrive "get link" URL contains personally-identifiable information. The URL that OneDrive gives you, when you share a folder, or file, contains both the organization name, as well as your personal email address.
    "https://<your organization>-my.sharepoint.com/personal/<your email address>/_layouts/15/guestaccess.aspx?folderid=1fc523d2004e243e5b01f8444a25aa921&authkey=ATiR2GckBFQK9-Tl8u4Q6bM"

  7. Incentives for Malicious Site Reporters (phishing) @msftsecurity

    Hi,

    I have two suggestions, both related to phishing attacks against Microsoft.

    ▶Make phishing reports traceable!

    The phishing reports sent to hXXps://www[.]microsoft[.]com/en-us/wdsi/support/report-unsafe-site-guest
    result in a generic "thank you" message, and thus give me impression that go into a black hole.

    No ticket, no OLA, no trace that the report has ever been sent nor received.
    This severely discourages independent security analysts like myself from using your reporting system,
    even if it is related to Microsoft products like Outlook or OneDrive.

    Create and API for reporting, not only the clunky web form.

    ▶Create a report-gift system.
    Count legit reports sent out…

  9. Allow uploading of encrypted files through third party app

    Please make it possible to upload encrypted files through apps like rclone without continously triggering ransomware protection which blocks the web interface. Alternatively: When the user confirms that the uploading of encrypted files is intended, OneDrive should stop triggering ransomware protection again and again, as it is currently doing.

  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. Provisioning for reassigning licenses to users that have stopped their licenses for over 30 days

    Provisioning for reassigning licenses to users that have stopped their licenses for over 30 days


    ■Description(内容):
    ライセンスを解除してから 30 日以上経過したユーザーに対して再度ライセンスを付与する際、プロビジョニングが正常に完了しないことにより当該ユーザーの OneDrive for Business 上のデータにアクセスできなくなる可能性があるため、解除してから 30 日以上経過したユーザーに対するプロビジョニングが正しく完了できる機能を実装してほしい。

    ※ 長期休暇の社員が 1 年後に復帰する際など、ライセンスを解除してから 30 日以上経過したユーザーにライセンスを再付与する場合があるため。
    When re-licensing a user who has stopped the license for more than 30 days, the user may not be able to access data on OneDrive for Business if the user fails to finish the provisioning normally. Thus we hope that a feature that can complete provisioning correctly for users who have passed the 30 day mark will be implemented.

  12. Give the option to let onedrive use an subst to a drive letter.

    Give us the option to let onedrive be accesses bij a drive letter. This soves the following problems:
    - The path is sorter (c:\users\username\onedrive with be O:)
    - You can allow browsing with chromium without exposing the c: drive (blacklist file:///*, whitelist o:/)
    - Old programs can access the onedrive files much easier.

  13. 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,

    • Set a global option that allows you to disable the versions or limit the maximum number of them, for example: 0, 3, 7 versions.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
