  1. Fix no sound/audio to play in 3gp format videos on onedrive.live.com

    Requests made numerous times that you fix audio in .3gp format that does not play in a video to my Lumia 640 phone sent from my daughter's iphone on my Windows 7 computer at my online Onedrive.live.com account. All I ever got from Onedrive Support was many back-and-forth emails on several occasions to perform so many steps that never solved the problem and were not my preference of choice to use/try, i.e. use Internet Explorer brower--I use Firefox--and a slew of others steps that NEVER resolved the problem. WHAT GOOD IS A CLOUD IF IT CAN'T PLAY SOUND/AUDIO OF STANDARD…

    • 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.

      • 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.

          I am concerned that the invitation mail will be sent in the form of the verification code in case of right-clicking on the item and execute an external invitation by [Share] option in the modern UI.

          If validation code authentication is enabled, you can also invite email addresses that are not registered as Office 365 accounts or Microsoft accounts, also you can access the items if you only have code which is undesirable for…

                It is very frustrating to not be able to read the entire file name. Please add this capability.

                  • Add Support for Sync File Path (Removable Media)

                    Ok, so today I got concerned about my drive getting too full, with documentation. I'm sure I'm not the only individual/business or even budding entrepreneur with files of business activities in their personal computer. Perhaps enabling a sync path for removable media, such as UBS or MicroSD could allow easy transitions for on the go entrepreneurs out of the office.

                    This would be a great feature, because of tablets and mobile phones with MicroSD slots, or even laptops with USB ports. Imagine this: A CEO that needs to download files for a presentation at another office, or a law firm…

                              • Option to Speed up uploading

                                4 day to upload 5700 photos, while using Wi-fi and with a Internet connection of min 42 mb.

                                Is not an impressive start to uploading all my photos on to OneDrive.

                                There should be an option to stay connected when the phone goes to sleep or for the app to work in the background.

                                Thanks you for this shake to get help.

                                Hope you have a great day.

                                      You need a way to integrate/merge accounts. I accidentally created 2 separate accounts which I didn't mean to do and I've tried to copy files from one to another. I've tried emailing my files so I could upload them but when I sign out of one then sign into the other and go to email to upload it states, "Can not have more than one personal account" so I don't know what to do. Thanks for your help.

                                          We recognized that the "Synchronization Calculator for OneDrive for Business" has discontinued lately, however, we think it is a very practical function to use. Therefore, we would like you to redeploy the "Synchronization Calculator" again.
