    Adding a feature not to sync files distinguished and protected by DLP (Data Loss Prevention) system


    ■Description(内容): DLP の機能で機密情報が含まれていることを検知されたファイルについて、ローカルと同期されて端末に保存され、情報が流出してしまう事態を心配しています。セキュリティの面で懸念を残すため、機密情報が含まれているファイルの同期を禁止する機能の実現を要望します。

  2. Eliminate Security Issues Created by Incompatible Storage Features

    File management has been a nightmare for years and OneDrive is making things more complicated by adding to the number of extra steps we have to take in order to have a somewhat consistent experience. Here are just a few problems:

    Storing your files on an NTFS drive lets you encrypt, compress, view zip file as regular folder, set permissions, file history, use bitlocker, file tagging, customize data shown in columns, file attributes, using time stamps for various automated or auditing purposes, LAN sharing over SMB 2/3, and offline caching. All of these features can often be put to good…

  5. Maybe have a two-step verification established on every logon/install?

    Every time you logon to a computer (Home/Work) have an established two-step verification to your mobile phone or email. This way no one else will have access to your personal files.

  6. Allow syncing only on computers joined to a local workgroup

    Allow only syncing on PC's connected to an Azure domain. The setting is in OneDrive Admin but it only works for local AD domains. It doesn't say that so it is very confusing but I found an article on that from a third party and Microsoft agreed it was true. Allow only syncing on PC's connected to an Azure domain.

  7. Allow us to control sharing between users between different GEO in Multi-GEO environment

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Multi-GEO 環境を利用の場合に、他の GEO のユーザーと共有できないよう制御する機能について
    Allow us to control sharing between users between different GEO in Multi-GEO environment


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、OneDrive for Business において、同一テナント内のユーザー間での共有を禁止する機能が実装されていないことを確認しております。Multi-GEO 環境を利用している場合に同一テナント内のユーザー間での共有を禁止できないことで、社内の機密情報が海外に漏洩する可能性があるため、異なる GEO 間での共有を禁止する機能の実装をお願いします。

    I would like to see the feature to restrict sharing between users in different GEO. In current design, we are no able to stop sharing for users in same tenant in OneDrive Business, however, confidential information leakage to outside of countries might occur when we use Multi-GEO environment.

  9. Optimizing the Order of File Transfer

    Optimizing the Order of File Transfer
    Arrange the order of files according to the requirements.
    First download or upload the latest files, then download or upload the old files, and finally process the deleted files.
    This will prevent the current amendments and new documents from being processed in a timely manner.

  10. Require OS passcode

    Rather than the currently-offered "require app passcode" policy, offer a policy that works similarly to the Outlook Mobile app, where the app doesn't have its own unique passcode, but refuses to function until you have set a passcode in the OS of the mobile device.

  11. Personal Vault Shared

    I would like an ability to share a personal vault with someone else. So that I can share the sensitive family documents with the same re-authentication controls.

  12. File Encryption for OneDrive Personal Users

    File Encryption for OneDrive personal users

    Microsoft needs to offer file encryption for its personal users as they do for business customers. We pay for a service and I would feel more confident if I didn't have to use a 3rd party app to encrypt my personal data on OneDrive.

  13. Eliminate filename and folder name exclusions

    At the moment, some characters and file/folder names will not sync, even though the names are valid on the device. For instance, a folder named "Forms" in the root of the sync directory will not sync to the cloud. This is an unnecessary restriction.

  15. Remote Logout

    If you log in to OneDrive from a PC, you tend to remain signed in, yet the ability to remotely log off a device or session is strangely missing. This makes your files vulnerable to access or deletion.

    Other services, such as Google Drive, have this capability.

    Example: You're at a friend's house and you use their PC to log in to OneDrive and download something, but don't click 'logoff.' Your friend now has access to all of your OneDrive files and can read, change, or delete the files. With remote logoff, you could use your app or PC to…

  17. Clearly state, in layman's terms, your encryption policy, in the documentation

    Please clearly state if you encrypt non-subscription OneDrive files at rest (free, personal, OneDrive files).

    In layman's terms, please discuss the differences between encryption options for both "Subscribed-to-Office 365 personal" users, and "non-subscribed personal" users.

    In layman's terms, please clearly indicate the context of Microsoft encrypting our personal files at rest, via OneDrive (free, personal version), and the consequences thereof -- theoretically speaking -- Microsoft would have the key and a Bad Actor could unlock said files.

    Publicly explain why, or why you don't, encrypt OneDrive files at rest for free, personal use.

  19. Terrible logic when sharing a folder on OneDrive. Preference not for email address added as family in account.

    I was sharing a folder on OneDrive with my family and I was disappointed to find that for one of my family email address was picked from contact list but email address provided in Account/Subscription was not picked. It was not even recognized even though it should be in my contacts. I have a premium office subscription and have my family with their Outlook email addresses added in there. However, when sharing anything with my family I have to enter their outlook email addresses manually. This is terrible logic when sharing. It is worse to find that these email address…
