  1. Provide us to delete local cash files automatically when file on demand is enabled

    ファイル オンデマンド機能を有効にした際に、ローカルに保持されるキャッシュ ファイルを自動で削除する機能について。
    Provide us to delete local cash files automatically when file on demand is enabled


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business のファイル オンデマンド機能を有効にし、ローカル上にアイテムを保持した場合 "空き容量を増やす" にて ハードディスクの容量を軽くすることができますが、同期フォルダー上に一定期間 (指定した期間) 使用していないファイルがある場合に、自動で "空き容量を増やす" 機能について実装をお願いします。

    I would like to see the feature to “increase storage space” if there are unused files for certain period (specified period) at sync folder automatically.
    At current feature, we need to enable file on demand for OneDrive for Business and save items on the local to make more space for hard disk with “increase storage space” option.

    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…

  3. Please extend the limitation of file paths for the sync on OneDrive for Business

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business における同期の 400 文字の上限の引き上げについて
    Please extend the limitation of file paths for the sync on OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    以下の公開情報に、SharePoint Online および OneDrive for Business における同期の制限事項に、ファイル名のパスに、400 文字まで設定することが可能と記載がある。

    <参考情報>
    タイトル : ファイルおよびフォルダーを同期する際の制限事項
    アドレス : https://support.microsoft.com/ja-jp/help/3125202/
    ----------以下抜粋----------
    SharePoint Online では、ファイル名のパスに、400 文字まで設定することができます。 一部のシナリオ (特に、ライブラリに非常に長い URL パスを設定している場合) では、文字数の制限が 400 文字を下回る場合があります。
    ---------抜粋ここまで---------

    しかしながら、日本語などのダブル バイト文字を使用している場合、Office Online や Office クライアント等で Office 対応ドキュメントを開く際に、ブラウザー側でダブル バイト文字はエンコードされ、 1 文字につきシングル バイト文字換算の 9 文字として計算されるため、すぐに 400 文字の条件に達してしまいます。
    そのため、400 文字の上限値を引き上げをお願い致します。

    We understand that file name paths are able to have maximum 400 characters on SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business as below information mention.

  4. "Exclude specific KINDS of files from being uploaded" - GPO Not Working

    The newest GPO addition which allows the administrator to exclude certain file names (including wildcards) from upload isn't working. This is different than the setting which excludes file "extensions" (which does work properly).

    We've deployed the latest version of the Sync client as well as have updated our ADMX files for the use of the new GPO options for OneDrive.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that the Sync client is honoring the list of file names (or patterns) that the GPO places into the registry location:

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\OneDrive\EnableODIgnoreListFromGPO

  5. allow admins to get a report of users that utilize the PC Folder Backup feature of OneDrive

    This will help admins track which users are using the feature so it can be implemented better. Management and deployment will be easy as you will only need to contact users that are not using the feature and avoid manually checking each user one by one.

  6. 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.

    Please make it possible to change the storage limit for OneDrive from the Microsoft 365 admin center without getting any errors.

  12. OneDrive for Business: Revise the "Access Files" feature in the Microsoft 365 admin center

    Currently, admins with the SharePoint administrator role can easily access the personal OneDrive for Business library of other users in the same tenant following the steps described below:


    • Search for the user in the Microsoft 365 admin center

    • Click on "OneDrive Settings"

    • Click on "Access files"

    Subsequently, the admin performing these steps is added as site collection admin to the OneDrive for Business site collection of the user.

    While we trust each other within our team, this feature might be a huge concern to other people in the company. In addition, users might lose trust in Office 365 if they…

  14. Option for OneDrive to Skip Backup of Select Folders, without deleting them from our computers.

    Folders like ".git", "tmp", "cache" should never be backed up. They are easily regenerated and there is no logical reason to backup these folders ever. These folders need to be skipped.

    Currently we have the option to not backup certain folders but they will be deleted from our computers if we do. How about allow us to keep the folder on our computers and OneDrive...simply ignores it.

  16. Adjust the notification message generated when multiple files are moved or deleted.

    Ability to adjust the message "Heads up! We noticed that you recently deleted a large number of files from a site". Also the ability to set a minimum number of files before the alert is triggered.

    The message is causing confusion when users move files as they are get picked up as being deleted.

  17. Option to set one specific folder "Always keep on this device" in intune and GPO

    It would be great if admins can set the value "always keep on this device" for a specific folder in the OneDrive of all users in the company.

    We can use this for example to place UE-V files.

    If possible, can it be set with a GPO or Intune or both.

    Disable external OneDrive sharing per user

    When users leave our company, we want to disable external sharing on that user only. In the O365 Admin console there is an option for this. However, the setting is overwritten by the tenant settings.
    We need more granular control on external sharing

  19. Improve deleted user notice to reporting manager

    The plain-text, single paragraph notice is hard for many users to understand. Consider breaking up into several chunked paragraphs.

    An example of how this might be done is listed here:

  20. Enable Option to Turn off Onedrive for Business Versioning

    I am currently using OneDrive for Business as a back-up storage which mirrors one of my other cloud storage. The version files takes up space every time we trigger a sync. I would like for the option to turn-off versioning for OneDrive.
