  1. Limit or disable versioning based on file type

    We would like to use OneDrive to allow users to backup their local PST files from their workstation. We don't want users to import these large files into their OST file in Outlook so it is more of an archive solution.

    The issue is that if users connect their PST file to Outlook it starts creating versions. We can block sync of PST files but that is not the desired behaviour.

    It would be nice if we could limit or disable versioning based on file types at an admin level.

  2. Automatic Site/Group Joining

    Need a way for admins to automatically assign SharePoint / Group Document Libraries to sync to user OneDrive Clients. These are often used to replace old "Network Shares"

  3. Encrypt on local hard drive

    As a organization we’d like the ability to have the whole local OneDrive for Business folder encrypted, so that even if another administrator logs on, they wouldn’t be able to access the data. We can enable bitlocker for the hard drive but we cannot prevent the scenario with local admins, as they can just take ownership of the user profile folder.

  4. A businessplan for one user and at least 5 TB of storage

    Small datadriven businesses still often need more than 1 TB of storage, but it is not viable to pay for 5 userlicenses.

  5. Allow Manager Access on Disable instead of Delete of AAD Account

    We would like the option to grant the manager access to a OneDrive when a user account is disabled (Sign-In Blocked) rather than deleted. We leave accounts disabled for 30 days so we need to manually grant access to managers.

  12. Update the email sent to manager when a user has been deleted to include a link to the Site Collection Owners setting.

    Update the email sent to manager when a user has been deleted to include a link to the Site Collection Owners setting.

    Including a link to the _layouts/15/mngsiteadmin.aspx would allow the manager to assign a different owner for the OneDrive of the deleted user.

  14. Allow increasing a site's quota when at capacity..

    With the current product limits, administrators are unable to manage a user's my-site quota after they have already hit quota. The solution involves contacting the end user and asking them to clear out enough content to get the site back under quota or creating a ticket to support to process the request by way of an escalation to PG. If administrators were able to bump up a user's quota while it was currently at quota we could avoid the extra steps of having to ask an end user to delete content or creating a support request, when the need to…

  16. Have an alternative means to contact the Onedrive support team other than the 'email'.

    Currently there seems to be only one way to get in touch with the Onedrive support team. I can log in to onedrive.com to write down what the problem is in the feedback form, but it does not get sent for some reason.

    Shouldn't there be an alternative mode of getting support in case the probem users experience also affects their ability to get support by sending 'feedback' via their account?

  20. OneDrive Personal - Encryption at rest

    Virtually all other cloud storage providers offer encryption at rest and OneDrive for Business does too. There seems no reason why OneDrive Personal users shouldn't also be afforded the exact same level of security, especially those of us paying a subscription for the service. Perhaps it could be made an additional benefit of an Office 365 subscription if the desire is not there to offer it to free users. However, with Microsoft's resources and apparent desire to champion security of user data, encryption at rest for OneDrive Personal feels a bizarre missing piece to the puzzle.
