  1. Turn off virus detection for Office 365

    n my work, I have to analyse lots of file, maybe they contain virus or malicious software,
    but onedrive client just block it and I have to login onedrive.com and download it mannualy.

    I have searched everywhere in the "Office 365 admin center",
    why there is not a option to turn off the virus detection?

    I have also tried the gragh API and can't download it either, just "malicious detected" returned when I request the download url.

  3. Add partial file sync/file diff sync

    My Lightroom Catalog is very large, 1GB+, and every time I open and close Lightroom, even if I don't actually change anything, the entire catalog file resyncs to OneDrive

  4. Move Application Folders to dedicated subfolder

    There is no dedicated folder where applications can store their files.
    Some use the top folder, other the 'Documents' folder
    but the top folder should be relatively clean and user oriented
    whilst documents should be mainly maintainted with user content

    hence the suggestion to provide an dedicated folder for such items.
    Some thing like Applications Files,
    it could be placed under the top folder or the Documents folder

  5. Add extra storage to OneDrive user

    Using a Office 365 Home subscription, you get 1 TB OneDrive space for each user - currently 6 users in total. I suggest making it possible to increase the storage for each user, surely for an extra fee or montly cost or similar. As it is now, users has no chance adding extra TB and therefore they are stock at 1 TB.

  6. Combining OneDrive storage for Home 365 subscription

    Combining OneDrive storage for Home 365. 6 subscriptions of 1TB each should be able to be pooled into 1 subscription of 6TB (or other variations of 6 subs & 6TB).

  9. Deletion of OneDrive message to managers logic on timer job

    The job that runs when a user leaves the company, and their account has been disabled, needs to include some logic. Before a email is ever sent to a manager, there should be verification that there is data in the OneDrive. I don't know how many times, a manager has received a message regarding a OneDrive, only to find out there isn't any documents in the OneDrive account.

    This creates a lot of wasted time by a manager, legal hold, and our IT staff. Only to find out there isn't any information to worry about. This can't be a hard…

  10. More stats required for sign-ins into OneDrive for security and statistical gathering, information on specifics from Mobile, PC, Browsers.

    More stats required for sign-ins into OneDrive for security and statistical gathering, information on specifics from mediums such as Mobile, PC, Browsers. Individual results required.

    Also, logins and logouts are not gathered, as once a user is signed into any device, they are always signed in... defeats the purposes slightly here. it would be good to see daily logons.

  12. Centrally manage / easier Sharepoint syncing

    I find that trying to train users on syncing Sharepoint has been EXTREMELY challenging, more so than creating apps, configuring Sharepoint or even landing men on the moon for some reason... It would be handy to have a console where I can say right that bunch of users, matter what Device they are on (as long as it is Windows 10), they get these libraries synced. I have generally always got 1 site that everyone accesses (or the vast majority) and it would be good to just tick a box and whenever a new laptop is added, as soon as…

  13. Prevent the ability to delete the location being synced in explorer until syncing has stopped.

    When a user selects the location they are syncing in the explorer navigation pane they should not be able to delete this folder or selecting delete should automatically stop the sync and then remove the folder. Currently pressing delete prompts them that the folder will be permanently removed from their computer but doesn't let them know that the Onedrive sync client will go-ahead and delete all the contents of that folder in SharePoint as well.

  14. Adjust the notification message generated when multiple files are moved or deleted.

    Ability to adjust the message "Heads up! We noticed that you recently deleted a large number of files from a site". Also the ability to set a minimum number of files before the alert is triggered.

    The message is causing confusion when users move files as they are get picked up as being deleted.

  16. 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.

    We would like you to allow administrators to check sync status of each users in the organization for deploying OneDrive for Business sync client for users in various sites.

    It would be better if we have the notification alert or error logs on the client side when there is sync error. So that Administrator will be able to see the machine with failing sync and work for it.

  18. 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.

  19. Increase the free storage

    Giving only 5 GB for free on OneDrive is the worst idea. Google Drive offers 15 GB for free then why Microsoft's OneDrive doesn't? If 15 GB is not possible then give at least 10 GB of free storage! 5 GB is not sufficient for any one. Also Google Drive offers unlimited photos and videos upload on high quality, OneDrive also compromises in that part too! So sad to see how world's most richest man consume his money on his own fans & customers.
