  1. renaming pictures

    I am finding OneDrive really useless & will stay with using Dropbox in synchronizing/backing up my photos, unless OneDrive designers will change their mind on the issue of renaming pictures as they are being saved into the cameraroll folder.
    Thats REALLY BAD and has messed up all my picture folders, before I recognized what's going on. Now I will have to find all those duplicates, I have created by copying pictures from OneDrive to my NAS Picture Folders. The purpose of synchronizing is to have an exact copy of the same file! I just can't understand that anyone sane could…

  2. Just a thought

    Si right when I got this I signed in got my grips and then went to work. What I didn't realize is that there was a upload camera roll button. So I accidentally hit said button and for the past week it's been uploading my whole camera roll. So, my thought is that you should have something as simple as a cancel button. Because it would have saved me a lot of time and space.

  3. Make a confirmation button for recycling bin & a recovery option other than recycling bin

    Put a confirmation button for recycling bin so that it lessens the likelihood of accidental deletion like the over 2000 pictures & videos of my children that I never moved to recycling bin and now I can never get back. I used you guys as a safety net to protect my pics & videos now I'm thinking of going elsewhere.

    Another option for recovering deleted files other than recycling bin would be helpful too.

  6. Add a functionality to change onedrive default to open office application and not office online

    It would be good to be able to change default settings in OneDrive to enable a shared file to open in Office 365. Currently selecting the file opens it in Office on-line. There is an option if the file is right clicked (e.g. open in word online or open in word), but this is tedious so there should be made a default option to select how the files are opened. The online Office does not have the same functionality as Office 365 hence this request.

  17. Allow setting a desired interval for scheduled, automated syncing

    I am currently "affected" by a known syncing issue, wherefore the resident folder in my laptop and the online version do not talk to each other (which makes me wonder what OneDrive is for, then, and why I am paying my subscription to Office 365, since I had upgraded specifically for that feature).
    At any rate, while talking to Support I asked whether it would be possible to establish a pre-set time interval at which to synch the folder and the app –once this known bug is fixed–. Apparently it isn't at this point in time, but the feature might…

  19. OneDrive needs the ability to search individual folders. "Search everything" is useless if you are search if you have 10000 results.

    Why can't you search an individual folder. I'm looking for "text123", and I KNOW it's in a folder 5 subfolders down. But above that subfolder, "text123" yields 800 results. If I could search the subfolder, it would yield the 1 result I needed. So your search everything is useless, because I'm still going through 800 results.

  20. Separate download and delete

    Could the download and delete options in the right click menus be further apart or can delete be seperated thematically?. it makes automaticity so much harder.
