  1. 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

  3. Control internal and external shared links

    I want to be able to control automatically all shared links in the organization by "setting" an expiration date. Actually we use a script the use Graph. They inspect all shared links in the Graph Delta items collection and:
    destroy all external shared links if they are 7 days old for external shared
    destroy all internal shared links if they are 30 old and resend an automatic invitation to "poke" both person: the sender and the receiver. Internal shared links can be use with our 6 emails domains.

  4. Provide GPO as separate download

    Our computers has already installed OneDrive and we must uninstall and reinstall to just download latest GPO templates. So please, just published them on Microsoft Download Center like every other team (Office, Windows). Thanks

  5. File Encryption for OneDrive Personal Users

    File Encryption for OneDrive personal users

    Microsoft needs to offer file encryption for its personal users as they do for business customers. We pay for a service and I would feel more confident if I didn't have to use a 3rd party app to encrypt my personal data on OneDrive.

  8. "Wants to Access" notification needs more details

    The request for access notification (email when a user request access to a OneDrive or SharePoint) needs to provide more information. Especially the actual file/folder.

    Details: Had an external user that requested access to a users OneDrive Folder. More than likely in error as they were previously sent a link to an actual file. The request only show the tenantname-my-sharepoint.com No further information was mentioned. After researching the audit logs, I was able to determine the user was sent the link and what OneDrive(OD4B) the user was attempting to access. Would be nice if the email would display the full…

  10. There are different behavior when Global Administrator has enabled the Retention Policy for OneDrive for Business

    We have enabled the Retention Policy for 7 years via https://protection.office.com/retention recently and found out there are different behavior for OneDrive for Business Web Based version and OneDrive for Desktop Application version.

    When an user is trying to delete a folder in OneDrive for Business in Web Based version, it will appears an error message when the "hold" is enabled and this is default behavior until we deleting all the files in this folder.

    However, when we tried to delete a folder in OneDrive for Business for Desktop Application, there are no error message appeared when the "hold" is enabled…

  12. Sharing policy for OneDrive- user defaults?

    In order to allow some users to be able to share OneDrive folders with external guest users we have changed the default sharing policy in our Microsoft 365 tenancy from “Existing external users” to “New and existing external users” in the OneDrive Admin center

    However, this seems to have proactively changed the OneDrive setting for all existing users from “Only allow sharing with existing guest users in the directory” to “Allow sharing to authenticated users with invitations”

    This means we have to go through all the existing users except those that we want to be able to invite new guest…

  13. PRIVACY LOCKOUT; BRUTAL. DO NOT LINK EDUCATIONAL ACCOUNT TO PRIVATE ACCOUNT

    Hi Lucas

    As discussed today the email address xxxx@deakin.edu.au which was previously active email tied to your student account. This account we unlinked from your Dxxxx Account when it was deleted on this date: 2016-12-05.

    Dxxxx student username/emails are randomly generated and hosted on Exchange365 making it now impossible to recover this email. I would also advise the company you are dealing with that usernames unlike student ID numbers can and do get reassigned to different users after a certain period of years, this would pose a security risk and/or data breach for any data you have stored/hosted on their…

  14. Function for users without an admin license to check file access histories

    管理者ライセンスがないユーザーでファイルのアクセス履歴の確認する機能について
    Function for users without an admin license to check file access histories

    アクセス履歴を確認するユーザーに管理者ライセンスの付与をすることは社内ポリシー上できないため、管理者ライセンスを付与をせず、動画をアップロードしたユーザーがアクセス履歴を確認する機能の追加をご希望

    Since in order for a user to check file access histories, they need an admin license which we cannot grant due to our internal policies, please add a way for users to check the access history for videos they uploaded without having been granted an admin license.

  15. User deletion should remove access for any shared files/folders

    An employee leaves the company and his user is removed from the Microsoft 365 admin center through Active Directory synchronization.

    Due the OneDrive retention settings the content is still available for the defined period and can be accessed or restored by using PowerShell.

    During the retention period other users are still able to access any shared content in OneDrive (sharing links still active).

    A solution is necessary if the company requires that shared content should not be accessible if the user leaves the company. Or when the OneDrive is moved to the site collection recycle bin users realize late that…

  20. Add a report of users that do not have a OD4B site provisioned but have a license

    Would be nice if we could generate a report of all users that have a license for a OneDrive site but have not had a site provisioned. This list could be used with a PowerShell script to provision the sites and then create a script that automatically provisions one when a user is added to Azure AD.
