  1. In the sync client, add a function to get a list of all files which have been synced from the OneDrive for Business side

    In the sync client, add a function to get a list of all files which have been synced from the OneDrive for Business side


    ■Description(内容):
    同期クライアントにて、クライアント上に同期済みとなっているファイルは、端末側からであれば確認ができるが、OneDrive for Business 側からの確認ができない。端末の紛失時に、どのファイルが同期されていたのか確認したり、ファイル管理の上でも OneDrive for Business 側から同期済みファイルの一覧を取得する機能の提供を希望します。

    While it is possible to check which files have been synced on the sync client from that machine itself, it is not possible to do it from the OneDrive for Business side. If a device is lose, we would like to be able to confirm which files were synced on it, and get a list of all of those…

  2. Adding recipient details in External sharing Policy -

    We are unable to view the external email id when a person share the file or folder hence no use of the policy with out tracking the email id of the recipient.

    Please enable this feature in the policy field to select and the same has to be triggered in the alert notification too...

  3. Provide a method to delegate access to a beneficiary upon death, like Google's Inactive Account Manager

    OneDrive accounts may contain very sensitive and important information, especially when combined with the use of the Personal Vault. For instance, if you store your will in your Personal Vault, then upon your death or presumed death a beneficiary should have a method to automatically gain access to your account. Google accomplishes this with the Inactive Account Manager. It is not sufficient that a family member can submit legal documentation as I should have the ability to decide who gets access to my account and when, and I can choose to accept the liability that comes with that decision.

  5. Intelligent file management

    OneDrive should continuously monitor files to identify duplicate files and files that have not been used for a certain time. Duplicate files take more space in the cloud and on our local machines when we keep them synchronized, and more space taken means less space available and eventually leads to the addition of extra storage (both in data centers and locally), which leads to more energy wasted, etc. Files that we have not used in a while could be candidate to be kept in the cloud only. Why perform this manually when OneDrive could give us a nice monthly report…

  6. Litigation Hold Reports

    Please add options for us to determine which OneDrive accounts currently have litigation holds. We need a way to validate the hold is present.

    1) Please add a report in the OneDrive Admin Compliance center.
    https://admin.onedrive.com/?v=ComplianceSettings

    2) Add additional reporting to Microsoft 365 Admin Center for Security and Complaince.

    3) Create a new poweshell commandlet and/or add a Hold "flag" onto existing data results. Such as when running something like this: Get-SPOSite -Identity $OneDriveURL | FL

  8. Please add Unlimited Personal Vault features on a Storage Only package because we already bought MS Office (Not 365).

    Some people such as me, want to upgrade to get a personal vault feature, but we cannot buy 356 personal packages because we already have the Office app.

    I want to buy an OneDrive storage solution only (Maybe 1TB that's okay) but please include the personal vault without Office.
    I bet that will be attracting more customer from other cloud solutions like Google Drive or Dropbox.

  9. Group Policy settings to control auto start of OneDrive

    I need Group Policy settings to control auto start of OneDrive.
    On some machines its autostart is disabled either by the user or by Windows itself. I have folder redirection setup and it doesn't work without OneDrive automatically starting.

  14. 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…

  15. The ability to Delete Folders that aren't empty.

    By default you cannot delete folders in One Drive that aren't empty. This can be a huge pain especially when a user accidentally syncs a folder that should have been excluded (eg. 'C:\Users\UserName\Documents\MobaXTerm\ '). In order to delete the folder, I have to use a PowerShell script that recursively removes all of the sub-files and sub-folders (see attached).

  17. 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…

    If new users are added, instead of having to set this value again each time, it should be set to an initially configured default, and then if that value is exceeded…

  20. 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.
