It's taking everything I've got right now not to launch in to a tirade on this behavior. Dang, it just go the the better of me, apologies in advance: I'm sitting here watching Onedrive fill-up my disk and the only option is to kill it? I love the news that MS is doing what it can to become more customer responsive, but honestly you have to wonder - miles and miles to go. Ten minutes with a focus group or any power user and this would have surfaced as priority for the user experience. Onedrive team, please stop wasting my time and those of all your customers like this.
Also, why does Onedrive have to be a separate app with a stingy little window for selecting folders. Why not build this functionality right into Windows Explorer and into OneDrive Online so that to sync or not to sync is a property of the folder and set ahead of time online or immediately in Windows Explorer. Third, why can you not make it so I can simply stop the download of a folder? For my archive folder of pictures and videos for instance - I never want that to download.
Apologies for the rant but it has been a bad week with your products and this was just one more item </rant off>
