We’re planning to support Live Photos uploaded to OneDrive. Stay tuned for more details as we have them to share.
"We're planning to support Live Photos..." it's great that you plan on having a product that supports the platforms you claim to "support" 5 years later... MAYBE ONE DAY YOU WILL ACTUALLY HAVE SOFTWARE THAT WORKS.. GLAD YOU ARE PLANNING THAT!
Ryan, sure just update everybody around every 12 months or so and when we get to a decade going by you can jump up and down for successfully accomplishing nothing!
Can you tell us why it took Microsoft 3.5 years to accommodate this shortcoming since your product works on IOS devices to begin with. Leaving this unsupported creates a data corruption issue?
Douglas, keep thinking about it and scratching your head. I suppose we could just say no problem we will lose functionality, or I don't know, maybe we might say, hey lets use another companies products that DO support this... after a YEAR and a HALF..
Since you insist we will gladly use Apples or Googles products... have a nice day
Lack of timeliness, flexibility and agility to implement functionality to adhere to your own stated capability of "camera roll backup", when in fact, and clearly known by you, it is not properly backing up the live photos suggests quite a bit of a disconnect and lack of understanding.
This is disconcerting, disappointing and a blemish on your reputation and contradiction of your own stated goals of excellence.
You might even say your camera roll backup in fact is broken by not supporting images taken on an IOS device... to limit the backup to only "certain" pictures and not fully support the capabilities of the OS seems a bit short sighted as well as a fail for the function being offered. How is it that you let this state stand? I.e., your lack of support for the OS you are providing the software for?
Thinking about it? What does that mean. You indicate you back up photos but in fact you don't? What exactly is there to think about?
Fix your deficiency.
Douglas, There are two issues, one is that OD itself will display a Live Photo which is optional since this would be a feature.
However, there is another component of this that is NOT a feature but a requirement to support camera roll backup on an IOS 10 device.
If you are going to backup the camera roll on IOS devices and have users rely on those backups then you must support Live Photos. Not support Live Photos means that your camera roll backup fails to perform its intended task, thus a design flaw by the product team
Do what IOS does when selecting multiple images, create a quick shortcut link that is a slideshow of those images on the fly!
We’re thinking about this for our future planning but don’t have specifics to share yet.
Can, why is that? how do you expect people to use the recycle bin and recover data correctly? Data is organized in Folders and subfolders, etc...
We need to see the data in the same way the file system organizes it to just put it all in a big long list without previews makes it useless.
if you have no plans to address this are you saying Microsoft WANTS the recycle bin to be useless?
if so why does it even exist?
We need to see folders and subfolders, files in those folders, preview of files and then a date filter so we can see snapshots based on as of when. For example show me the recycle bin as of Monday or Friday or Today, etc..
Otherwise it does not help in data recovery and isnt that the whole point???
Or do you just like not getting the job done well?

We announced differential sync at the SharePoint Conference in May. We’ve already rolled it out to our OneDrive personal users and plan to roll it out to the rest of our users by end of this year. See this blog post for more details: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-OneDrive-Blog/OneDrive-announcements-SharePoint-Conference-2019/ba-p/616047.
Now with Windows 10 upgrading to UUP supporting Differential Sync don't you think your premier Sync client for ODfB should support this?
It is such a significant platform performance, time and experience issue, exactly why wasn't this "First"?
Angus, exactly what is there to think about? Isn't obvious to Microsoft that only syncing necessary data is efficient or is this a struggle to understand?
You are aware that this function has existed in DFS replication in Windows Server - forever?
Deltacopy is an obvious function that needs to exist in this type of environment for both OD and ODfB.
Do you have an update, other than a cryptic response from two years ago... really?
still scratching your head?
BITS as well.
Hi Kelvin, we currently have this feature in Chrome. Are you requesting this feature in Firefox and/or Internet Explorer?
Your "Feature" in Chrome is USELESS! Your design is USELESS! You behave like you never worked with files before!
In Chrome when uploading a folder, if the upload FAILS and then you attempt to re-upload the folder your upload terminates because the folder and/or files already exist, INSTEAD of skipping and continuing - RIDICULOUS!
Also in Chrome there is a credential time out... so if you are uploading greater than 5gb basically it is impossible - Good JOB!
EDGE fails often and doesn't even start the upload.
Maybe you guys can do some real work for a change????
Wanted to provide an update here: this is something we’re planning on doing, but don’t have a timeframe to share yet
Douglas, you need votes to make your cloud file program work better? How about sorry we should have done that from the beginning, after all we are the operating system manufacturer and understand what a File Explorer is and why it is important. Have no idea why we didn't do it right from the beginning and we are getting right on it...
Don't worry about it, its ok I'm sure your product is JUST fine the way it is.
