  4. 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.

  8. Check-out a DriveItem resource returns Unsupported Segment Type error

    We're getting "Bad Request" "Unsupported Segment Type" error when calling the /checkout endpoint on drive items as described in the official documentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/developer/rest-api/api/driveitem_checkout. We posted a question on SO but didn't get any answer except one that is to use the /beta endpoint instead. We actually tried both and non of them worked. Our SO questions is here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/48902182/sharepoint-unsupported-segment-type-when-checkin-chekout-file/48995349#48995349.

    Other endpoints work fine, only the /checkout does not.

    Could you please help us resolve the issue? Thanks!

  11. allow users greater flexibility to download user files from One Drive onto device external SD mini card/Flash drive (OTG attached).

    Currently one only may download from One Drive for Android 6.0.1 onto the device internal storage. This requires a third party app to migrate files from internal storage to external SD card or other OTG-connected external memory (i.e., flash drive, etc.). As this issue has no doubt been forwarded to you countless times, as a developer myself I fail to understand the planned limitation herein described, within the current OneDrive code blocking users from full access to storage options.

    Please add this functionality ASAP! The favor of your reply will be most appreciated.

    Kind regards,

  12. Offline folder button

  14. Offline

    Make everything, that one can have, available offline. So when connected to internet it syncs automatically and when you go offline tou csn be sure that everything is up to date. Just like on a computer.

  15. Find unsynced files using OneDrive

    The issue is, I had been using onedrive on my work computer for a long time. Without knowing that all my files then were never synced to the server! Now that I have to use a new computer, I logged out my onedrive from the old device and logged in to the new one. Thats when the nightmare begins. To realise that many of my files were missing.

    I went on to check on onedrive web and saw that they werent there either. That's when I realised in the first place, the files weren't synced at all. Tried many ways…

  19. One should have to give permission for a file/folder to be shared to their drive.

    If I click a link on a link to a file merely to see what it is, it is automatically shared to my OneDrive. This is extremely annoying. I want to be able to actually give permission to that file/folder to be shared with me, if I accidentally click something wrong, I would want this option.
