    Last week we announced a new feature called Personal Vault that will be available soon for OneDrive consumer accounts. See this blog post for more details.

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/blog/2019/06/25/onedrive-personal-vault-added-security-onedrive-additional-storage/

    We have no plans to bring Personal Vault to our Commercial customers at this time, but continue to make investments in advanced security features that are unique to the Commercial service.

    Hey, if you want to vote for encrpted OneDrive, please support the "Zero Knowledge Encryption" Feature suggestion. This would mean only the user would have access, and even Microsoft would have no access. This is they only truely safe way for encryption, and used by security focused cloud storage provides, and third party software.

    Can you please tell us more about what you are looking for? What do you mean by “zero knowledge cloud storage”? Thank you.

    Steven commented  · 

    To clarify: Zero Knowledge Enryption means, that ONLY the user has the ability to encrypt and decrypt, with the service provider having no own access.
    This is actually one of the biggest trends in web storage today, with many third party devs offering additional software to provide this feature for OneDrive, Google Drive and other major services.
    Like Boxcryptor, Cloudevo, cryptsync, etc.
    Expecially for a business/professional focusing company like MS this should be a no brainer and major selling point in todays privacy consious world. Here in EU it is one if the biggest point holding companys back from the cloud.

    To me and many others especially in Europe and outside of US, zero knowlegde encryption is a MUST HAVE FEATURE not only for businesses, but also for most IT-Enthusiasts.
    With the NSA-Leaks, huge hacks, and Goverments even in the "western world" becoming more and more repressive towards free journalism and social activism, this will only become more and more important.
    Just look at the success of third party apps for onedrive which provide this features, i cant understand, why MS doesnt see this huge demand.
    As MS tries to aim their products more and more towards Professionals and semi-Professional and business users, it is even more crazy not to provide a true private cloud service.

    And as you dont seem to know the "zero knowledge" term, which is a quite popular buzzword and hype today (and justified IMHO), it just show how far off you still are as a company from your userbase, despite all efforts to close the gap between you and your customers.

    I hope you can the still catch up to this important development, while my hopes arent that high.
    Greetings,
    Steven

    I just was stunned not to find ANY browser extension for chrome that could do this.
    Only to commercial products, which are both more focused on general cloud storage sync (e.g. OneDrive to Google Drive file pushing/mirroring), than to provide a simple "Webclipper" type function with direct upload. In opposite to GDrive, which has a broad selection of such extensions.
    OneDrive is great at its concept, but in the specifics the details are often f..... up. Half-***** Ecosystems are a real PITA.

    We looked at increasing the file upload limit via the browser to OneDrive.com. The reason we chose 1000 was because we wanted a number that worked well in most browsers.

    I’d recommend if you are uploading thousands of files, it is easier to do it via the desktop sync client.

    Will leave this open but likely won’t get to it for a while as it is dependent on browser tech.
