  6. Add the possibility to add an AzureAD domain to the specific domain list for synchronization

    We would like to see the option to add AzureAD to the specific domain list, now it's only possible to add on-premise domains, but now with Intune and only azure-ad joined machines I think it would be a nice change. We use SCCM Co-management and Intune. The computers are not on-premise joined but we would like a restriction on what machines OneDrive can be synchronized. To make it work now the only option is to disable the specific domain sync but than we would lose control on what machines the synchronization can be made.

  8. recover files after freezing account

    Dear team Microsoft,

    i just lost my account and the whole files in it because it's getting freezed first. i am so dissapoint because the files cannot be recover again even after i buy 360 or another product.
    Some files is very important and it is okay if i have to pay "a product" or doing something to recover the files. Doesnt give any chance for your costumer to recover their files is very harmful.

    thanks,

  11. Add the option to exclude file types from being backed up instead of blocking

    We need the ability to exclude files from being synced. Blocking them generates errors and warnings for the end users which freak them out. We either need the ability to silently block file types or just exclude them from syncing. We have this issue specifically with Microsoft Teams generating shortcuts that then get synchronised everywhere else.

  12. Granting an app OneDrive permission should only grant access to a specific folder. Not everything

    When installing apps that uses OneDrive (I my case apps on Android) you grant them a very broad permission to access ALL AND EVERYTHING stored on my OneDrive.

    I my specific case, I wanted to try out apps that can stream the music from OneDrive I have stored on OneDrive. mp3 etc.

    You can only grant permissions to all and everything stored on OneDrive and not just that one folder where my music is. This behavior prevents me for using any non-Microsoft app that wants to connect to my OneDrive.

    I store personal sensitive stuff on OneDrive and I don't…

  13. 建议onedrive个人保管库在锁定状态下依然可以同步更改

    onedrive个人保管库只能在解锁状态下才能同步更改,这个机制不太合理,当我需要在个人保管库中上传大文件时,一般都不能在20分钟(保管库自动锁定时间)内完成上传更新任务,这时个人保管库会自动锁定并停止上传,导致我在其他设备上无法看到我在保管库中修改的内容。建议修改为在锁定状态下依然可以同步更改但是不能查看,这样更好一些,

  14. Disable Pause/Stop Sync for OneDrive for Business

    Disable Pause/Stop Sync for OneDrive for Business

    This is critical as some of our users are pausing the sync when they should not be. They dont realize this replaced folder redirection and if they are not syncing new data it will be lost in the event of a computer failure.

    This ensures the less likely hood of user data being lost.

  15. Prevent the ability to delete the location being synced in explorer until syncing has stopped.

    When a user selects the location they are syncing in the explorer navigation pane they should not be able to delete this folder or selecting delete should automatically stop the sync and then remove the folder. Currently pressing delete prompts them that the folder will be permanently removed from their computer but doesn't let them know that the Onedrive sync client will go-ahead and delete all the contents of that folder in SharePoint as well.

  16. "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

  17. SilentConfig

    As an enterprise administrator, I want to deploy OneDrive with absolutely ZERO user interaction.

    Following https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/use-group-policy?redirectSourcePath=%252fen-us%252farticle%252fUse-Group-Policy-to-control-OneDrive-sync-client-settings-0ecb2cf5-8882-42b3-a6e9-be6bda30899c we are able to setup OneDrive for our corporate users without them having to enter anything, when combined with odopen://sync/?useremail=youruseremail@<mySSOdomain>.com which will SSO the user into OneDrive. However the user still receives a window where they have to hit 3 buttons -"Sign-in”, “Next”, “Open my OneDrive…”.

    As an Enterprise deployment, I would like to avoid prompting the users for anything. I understand this is probably expected behavior, but it is not in line with Microsoft practices of supporting completely silent installation and configuration so…

    Notifications when the owner of a folder on OneDrive for Business has their account deleted


    ■Description(内容):
    特定のユーザーの OneDrive for Business のフォルダーを複数名で共有して利用しています。
    管理者が退職者のアカウントを削除する際、管理者は OneDrive for Business の他ユーザーへの共有については管理をしていないため、共有先ユーザーへ通知をすることはおこなっていません。
    そのため、管理者が共有元ユーザーのアカウントを削除をすると、共有先ユーザーは告知なしに今まで利用していたフォルダーやファイルを利用することが出来なくなります。

    一斉通知が送信できれば、共有元ユーザーが削除される前に通知を送信し、必要なファイルを移動させることができるので、機能の実装を希望いたします。

    We have a specific user sharing a folder on OneDrive for Business with many people.
    When an administrator deletes the account of someone who has left the company, since the administrator does not manage sharing with other users on OneDrive for Business, the users with which the deleted user’s files were being shared are not notified of the change.
    Therefore, if…

  19. Synchronize Windows Access Control Lists (ACLs) through OneDrive for Business with Azure Active Directory

    When a user synchronizes files in OneDrive for Business, the Access Control Lists (ACLs) on those files are lost, and permissions become enforced only through OneDrive itself. In a world with Azure Active Directory, this makes little sense, and makes securing files unnecessarily complicated (and makes security breaches unnecessarily likely).
    For OneDrive for Business when origin files have ACLs within a Windows Active Directory Domain, the administrator should have the ability to use Azure Active Directory to extend the application of those original ACLs to all places to which OneDrive for Business syncs the files. If a OneDrive for Business…

    We would like you to allow administrators to check sync status of each users in the organization for deploying OneDrive for Business sync client for users in various sites.

    It would be better if we have the notification alert or error logs on the client side when there is sync error. So that Administrator will be able to see the machine with failing sync and work for it.
