  1. La atención proporcionada por Miriam la considero irrespetuosa e inapropiada, ademas de una falta de empatía con el cliente inaceptable

    Revisen los correos de su agente /Miriam) pues imagino que esa falta de empatía conmigo es común en su compartamiento

  2. Ability to assign a contingent of Data to each Familymember Account

    We use the FamilyPack (6 Users, 1 TB each).

    It's great value for us, but we are only 4 People and everyone has different needs when it comes to storing our Data.

    I'd like to be able to freely assign how much of the 6TB included in our plan everyone can use. Because as it is now, we pay for 6TB but can only ever use 4TB. Having to create another account just to utilize the remaining space is a hassle.

  3. Please be sure to delete the "Documents" and "Attachments" folders.

    The 'Documents' folder and the 'Attachments' folder are created automatically. These folders are the default paths that can not be created or deleted.
    However, I do not use these folders.

    Please be sure to delete the "Documents" and "Attachments" folders.

  8. Allow for disabling of Versioning, and decrease lower bound threshold of versions to significantly reduce my data usage and save money

    The automatic non optional versioning is making me use more data than I need. This is the same for many other companies.

    Give this option so customers can decide what to value, space or back up.

  10. Activity Log

    OneDrive should have an activity log to track file changes (e.g. new file, renaming/deleting of files). Dropbox has implemented years ago.

  11. Help page on what to do when SkyDrive requests access

    I'm using OneDrive by switching between multiple accounts in the windows app.
    From the end of January 2021, when you start OneDrive or switch accounts, the following message will be displayed.

    (The original message is in Japanese as attached to the file. I have translated it into English.)

    Do you want to allow this app to access your information?
    Microsoft SkyDrive is asking for permission to do the following:
    --Access your OneDrive files
    --Full access to contacts

    Accepting these permissions means allowing this app to use the data as specified in the Terms of Service and Privacy Statement. The publisher

  12. Restricting downloads in OneDrive for Business

    Restricting downloads in OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business はユーザー自身が管理者という位置づけのため、自身の OneDrive for Business のダウンロードを制御することができないが、全体管理者側にて制御ができるよう、機能の拡充を要望します。

    Since users on OneDrive for Business are administrators themselves, there is no way to restrict downloading from their own OneDrive, so please add a way for global admins to enact such restrictions.

  13. Developers. Ask the question. If you had discovered the formula of how to change lead to gold would you entrust this formula to OneDrive?

    If you would not then how do you expect others to entrust their secrets? And yes, everyone has secrets.

  16. You need to put out a disclaimer notice ASAP!

    Yesterday I rec'd over 40 calls supposedly from "Apple Inc" telling me my "cloud" was causing a severe security risk to my Apple products. Altho I KNEW it was a scam (because I own no Apple products), others might not. Found out today that many other friends also rec'd those same annoying repeat calls all day long & even into the night until around 8 pm yesterday. I blocked every number they used to call me, but they would then just roll over to another number for their robo-dialer to use to constantly harass me (as they did to my…

  18. It is very difficult and non-intuitive to make a shared file "view only" instead of "can edit". This needs to be fixed

    Make it easier to designate shared files "view only" instead of "can edit". This really needs to be fixed. It takes multiple tries because it is very non-intuitive at present.

  20. Merge multiple one drive accounts to use the total amount of storage

    Hi,

    I have 5 OneDrive business accounts with 1TB each - total of 5TB.

    My question is, Is there a Microsoft's official way to merge 5 or more OneDrive business accounts to use the total amount of storage?

    Regards

    Imran Shaikh
