  1. 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…

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

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名): 
    DLP で機密情報が含まれていると判定されたファイルの同期を禁止する機能を搭載してほしい

    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。

    It is afraid that syncing of files distinguished and protected by DLP system with local devices will occur serious leakage of personal or internal information. In accord with ominous repercussions, we hope that this needed feature will improve manageability of safe control and promote operational efficiency with bounding tighter security.

  4. Expire

    File expiration date: user defined expiration date of the file on onedrive. For example, product offers which user may want to get back to; or saved emails which may not be relevant or important to hold on to.
    Absolves the user from recurring purging of files.

  5. 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.

  8. 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…

  10. Onedrive Client Type Metrics

    Please introduce a way of monitoring what type of client is used to connect to OneDrive and SharePoint libraries. (ideally somewhere like the Unified Logging or OneDrive Logging on O365)

    This and other metrics would be useful for justification for developing strategies going forward about what software to have installed on our corp wide domain.

  11. 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.

  12. Problem with subscription

    Hello.
    I have a problem. I have 15GB in the cloud for free + 4GB invitation bonus + 15GB camera album. In the amount of 34GB.
    But when I buy a 100GB subscription, I get 119GB. 15GB free fade out. It turns out that I pay for 85GB. Solve the problem

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. Litigation Hold on Account - Don't need a license to keep OneDrive Info

    Currently, if someone in our company gets put on a Litigation hold, and they want us to keep their OneDrive for Business files, we would like to not have it eat up a license to keep the files. This is similar to how Mail acts the same way.

  17. Add local network/LAN sync so that my OneDrive Syncing PCs on my local network don't need to round trip to the cloud to share updates

    Allow OneDrive to be aware of other machines on the local network and sync changes directly between them to save the round trip to the cloud for every change

  18. 6TB per one person and one person only. Best be in the very near future

    Let me know when you allow one person to utilize all of the 6TB at once, then I'll consider signing up. In the meantime, 1TB per person, out of 6TB, is ludicrous!

    We sent people to the Moon! How is this not possible?

  19. Pricing range, cheaper and more variety

    Adding variety of pricing for One Drive. For now the OneDrive pricing is way too high for Indonesian market. Google taking away the market with cheaper option, let's say, 50gb on OneDrive is 31k IDR, where 100gb google drive is 25k IDR per month, with only 249k per year. the office bundling is just not everyone use, even I know it's way powerful then Google offer, but the Android and iOS version is way behind the desktop version, and way less capable than the Google Docs.
