  4. I do not like the automatic OneDrive. Never wanted to store anything in the cloud. Really don't like that I can't keep the files on my compu

    computer after disabling and closing OneDrive. Now I don't know where to find them.

    OneDrive is not a great idea. Do not force it on people who only need items on their personal computer and any external hard drives they choose to back up to.

  7. 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…

  8. Onedrive detected ransomware

    I received an email about Onedrive detecting some ransomware on my storage account.
    While reviewing the notification Microsoft told me 0 files were found which could be suspicious.

    I had to say :


    • I was deleting an old backup.

    • In the meanwhile I started a new backup to OneDrive

    I do believe (and hope) that Onedrive detected ransomware because of the not-very-normal download/upload and the amount of files at that moment.

    I could not find a way to figure out why Onedrive thinks about Ransomware as the files were deleted by myself at the moment the email came and therefor…

  10. Can OneDrive view the contents of my files?

    I use onedrive to protect my photos.But today i viewed the privacy items of Microsoft,which made me puzzled.it's URL is:https://privacy.microsoft.com/en-us/privacystatement .The items of microsoft says: You provide some of this data directly, such as-(omission)- upload a document to OneDrive, sign up for Microsoft 365, or contact us for support.

    what this item means?Can onedrive view my photo contents?I think it hurts my privacy if onedrive really follow this item.
    Can someone explain about this?I need an unambiguous answer!

    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.

  15. Quit getting into our privacy, and capturing photos. It's a little freaky, when the world, is full of hackers, lies, conspiracies and trick

    Give people privacy, that you know , to not be criminal...there are, always, adversaries of opinion...that doesn't mean, there, all, frickin' criminal...America, is free and this invasion of privacy, is harrassment, which is criminal.

    I am not a criminal!

  16. Option to reduce the number of document versions from OneDrive

    The default value for minimum number of document versions (both major and minor) is 100 currently.

    There should be a feature to reduce it at document library level and at OneDrive admin centre level.

    Our scenario- Many of our OneDrive users has huge files say 1GB size which are updated multiple times a day. This creates multiple versions on daily basis and within the span of 3 months time, around 1TB of storage is hit.
    Having option to reduce the number of versions to max 10 to 15, this file size will never grow that big.

  17. Kill the creation of "Create shared library" feature in OneDrive for Business

    This "Create shared library" feature in OneDrive for Business is more confusing and troublesome than helpful. This should be removed and let OneDrive for Business to be used for its intended purpose that is - use OneDrive for Business for storing and managing personal work related documents. That's it.

    Here are the problems / Concerns:


    • When you create a shared library, it is basically creating a brand new SharePoint Online team site. So this shared library is not a Document Library from user's existing OneDrive for Business. OneDrive is just mapping the newly created SharePoint site's Document Library in that…

  19. 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

  20. define folder to sync on every device

    It would be great, if every OneDrive installation has a setting to define what needs to be sync on this device. As example
    1) on my home computer I want everything to be sync
    2) on my Surface or Ipad, I only need certain folders with working documents
    3) on my mobile, I only want mp3-files to be synced
    Thanks
