Great suggestion and something we’re looking into.
Can you please tell us more about what you are looking for? What do you mean by “zero knowledge cloud storage”? Thank you.anonymous commented
Want to add my voice (and votes) to this. There's really two levels to this and OneDrive does neither. First is data at rest encryption. This means that if a hacker were to break into Microsoft and get OneDrive data, that data is stored "in the clear" and they could read everything. That's not good. This data as it sits on disk (at rest) should be encrypted.
Now the second level of this is who has the keys to decrypt that data? Some providers hold the keys themselves, others allow the customers to own their own keys. I believe everyone here wants the second option. To be honest, I'm okay with either option but before I can take OneDrive seriously as a storage medium I need to feel comfortable that the files on disk are encrypted.
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.
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.

100%...data at rest encryption is a must for OneDrive personal to be taken seriously. I would prefer that the users manage their own security keys but even if Microsoft did that would be an improvement over plain text file storage.
