  1. 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.

        • Allow sign in for multiple OneDrive personal accounts

          It's great that I can sign in to a personal OneDrive accounts and multiple Business OneDrive accounts simultaneously. I would love to be able to sign in to multiple personal accounts at once.

          • 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?

            • Multiple PC's using same One Drive

              When one drive is mapped to multiple PC's (this is the need of using cloud drive) when there are changes made on one PC and when accessing from another PC, One drive is unable to sync the changes and says there is a file or folder by the same name and stops sync - The error message says rename the folder - instead this can be automated with renaming the folder with PC name and the user can choose which to retain. Today the basic use of one drive is not usable due to the conflict error message which then…

              • Transfer data from personal onedrive to business

                I need to transfer my data from my personal onedrive account to my new O365 for business account. I have 83Gb of data and another user to go. The only way I can find to do this is download the data from personal to hardrive and then upload to business. This is time consuming and waste of data allowance and killing my bandwith. Why is there not a back-of-house method to do this?

                  • Prevent Download - Shared files - eg: .m4a files

                    The option to prevent download of shared files only works on a select few file formats. If i upload an m4a file to onedrive and set it so no one can download it, users are still able to download the file.

                    Google Drive have got it right - files that cannot be played in the browser cannot be downloaded to the user's device.

                    • Folder and File share access - restrict via IP Address

                      We would like to assign share access to Folders and Files to specific users that are connecting from specific IP addresses. This can already be done as a whole within sharepoint but this prevents access to other areas of the system.

                      We have confidential information that we would like staff to view that can be viewed only from the Company's external IP Address.

                              • OneDrive Internal Sharing for Non Owners

                                There needs to be a way of setting this at an organizational level. I am able to turn off sharing for non-owners via powershell, however it requires me to create a script to connect to each person's OneDrive, and it leaves the "Allow access requests" unchecked.

                                Goal: Require any re-sharing to be approved by the owner for the entire organization.

                                    Let us enable versioning for a folder and file as well

                                    ***************
                                    ■Description(内容):
                                    バージョン管理機能を使用する場合、SharePoint Online では "リスト" "ライブラリ" 単位で設定が可能。
                                    また、OneDrive for Business では "ライブラリ" 単位で設定が可能ですが、"フォルダー" および "ファイル" 単位でも細かく設定ができるよう、機能の実装をお願いします。

                                    I would like to configure versioning not only for a library, but also for a folder and file at both SharePoint and OneDrive for Business.

                                    Thank you for your consideration.

                                      It's important for us to know if there are multiple versions of files so that we can manage them correctly. Currently you have to inspect each file to see if there are additional versions kept. To be able to filter on these on have a column displaying this information would be a good start

                                      • Allow Office 365 business users to assign part of the 1 TB business Onedrive to their private Onedrive account.

                                        I have 2 onedrive accounts: a business onedrive account and a private one. It should be possible to use part of my business 1 TB for my private account (I need about 100 GB private).
                                        Because my PC has Office 365 already from my work subscription then Microsoft forces me to move my private cloud data to Google. I won't buy Office 365 a second time for my computer and no option to get or buy 100 GB for my privat outlook account.

                                        • Sync control on root level for OneDrive for Home usage

                                          As a home user, I store copies of important documents in the cloud, so I have them still available in case of e.g. fire. However I don't want those documents to be synced with every device I am using.

                                          My question is: Can a configuration be added to the root level folders of each account, where using the web-interface I can configure for each root folder whether the folder is allowed to be synced to a device or not. I would like to have this configuration in one place only (on the web interface), and not configure this on each…
