  1. Duplicate scanning

    I suggest a duplicate scan. I realized my space is almost full but I have a lot of duplicates. I know this would stop you from possibly getting some money but it’s also frustrating because I don’t want to lose pictures but I don’t want 4 copies of the same also.

  3. Upload priority

    Allow us to determine the order of upload (oldest vs newest or select specific pics to prioritize).

  4. Why not create a private drive?

    PrivateDrive is an option for OneDrive to become Private and can only be accessed by entering a pin/ Password

    PrivateDrive could keep all files save.
    If someone tries to get into the PrivateDrive and fails 4 times
    Microsoft will send a alert text to you to see what's happened.

    Please Consider this idea

  6. Suggestion

    Hi
    Can you look at adding a "select all" button at the empty trash menu.. I am sure many users will appreciate to use that button instead of having to select all the files one by one especially when you have too many files after a long period of time. Thank you for the consideration.

  7. Provide the ability to add OneDrive files and folders to Chrome OS through the Files app

    The OneDrive app does not provide the ability to show OneDrive files and folders in the Files app. Users can only see local files and Google Drive files, which makes moving, copying, etc. difficult between cloud services.

  8. allow videos to be embedded at any size

    Right now, videos embed at 320x180, which is hardcoded inside the iframe. Noo matter how large I make the iframe, the video player itself stays that tiny.

    I suggest REMOVING the dimensions from the player, setting them instead to 100% of the width of the containing iframe. The sample embed code would then have 320 x 180 as the default dimensions for the iframe, but a saavy designer/developer could remove those dimensions and make the video as large as they needed it to be and scale it responsively.

  9. Why can't I retrieve my password directly?

    Why can't I retrieve my password directly?
    The account applied for yesterday, the password can not be logged in, the account and password can not be directly retrieved! When you retrieve your account, you can fill in the subject of sending emails and receiving emails, but you have not sent emails. You only received a few emails from Amazon. There is no email subject, and you can't submit your questions! Why can't I retrieve my password directly? !
    It is recommended to restore the right to retrieve the password!

  11. Enable custom thumbnails on business accounts

    The page https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/developer/rest-api/api/driveitemputthumbnailset_content?view=odsp-graph-online specifies that custom thumbnails are only available for personal accounts. They should be available for all accounts.

  12. keep undos longer

    Please fix undos, if I change my view to reading mode it losed undos on both desktop and mobile. sometimes it even loses undos from the desktop office app for no reason, if you leave the app open for long enough.

    FIX! Google is doing better at this. would be nice if your backup and undo features were up to par

  18. Design

    Have you guys had a chance to use the Google photos app? I love one drive, but it would be awesome to see attention paid to the little details like you see in competing apps. More people will is the app if it offers a better experience. That better experience can't be just the bar if making sure it works but also how it makes a person feel when they use it.

  19. Show Shared With Me folders in the File Picker

    Currently it does not seem possible to open any files/folders that are "shared with me" (in OneDrive for Business/Sharepoint) via the JavaScript SDK File Picker as used by sites like draw.io.

    Previous requests have been made with no progress: https://github.com/OneDrive/onedrive-api-docs/issues/887

  20. SKIP files for upload

    Should have an option to skip files that are 'waiting' to be uploaded. Such a simple idea...should be done already really Microsoft.
