Thanks for the suggestion
Great news about starting to implement this feature, makes OneDrive a much better solution instantly! Thank you!
Hope it gets done sooner rather than later!
Are there any news regarding this functionality? Or is it still just a good suggestion?
I have some small(er) VHDs up to 10GB which would fit on OneDrive, but I still can't use them regularly with OneDrive sync as any change would re-upload whole 10GB file making it too slow.
Please give us an update on this in any way possible, thank you!
+1 to this. Also, if you're smart and previous version exists on some other user's account, you'll again just use the differential upload. Enterprise backup tools exist that can do that, so if you backup 50PCs they'll smartly deduplicate data and make differential backups, so .. well.. just a suggestion.
Can you please tell us more about your request? What feature are you looking for specifically? Thank you.
I'm just guessing, but I think it could be this:
We would love to get to this, all we can say at this point is that yes, this is something we want to do.
With unlimited (size) services, an unlimited number of files and unlimited individual file size should all be possible, otherwise it's not unlimited.
Personally, I think I'll be fine with 20.000 files and current 10TB data and 10GB file size, but that's now. What happens in a year or 10 I don't know, and I plan to continue using OneDrive service for a longer time.
Should be merged
+1 ... should have option to show both "stubs" as now, and hide files/folders completely
Yes, please. Allow upload/backup/sync of any folder to OneDrive, not just folders inside dedicated "OneDrive folder".
I had an idea that OneDrive could/should function as a Library on Windows PCs, but I'm not sure how to do it on Mac.
Yes, 1) could be solved with URL fetch ( as requested here: http://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/6642190-let-onedrive-fetch-files-for-me )
And 2) is good suggestion as well if you already have a lot of files on some other service.
+1 .. I've been uploadig 4GB files as it's faster through web, but sometimes they fail along the way... there is a retry button even. So I click retry, but it starts from 0%. Why not resume from where it stopped, or a 1-2% lower to make sure last blocks were transfered correctly. Also, why show me resume button, why not auto-retry few times first? I'm not looking at browser windows for 2 hours while uploads last, I go on with other things... and I'd like it to just be online when I come back to it after a while.
Can you please tell us more about what you are looking for? What do you mean by “zero knowledge cloud storage”? Thank you.
+1 to this.
For a file/folder of our choosing, encryption should be done on device and only we should have keys to this content. This is important for the sensitive data like financial reports, credit card information, contact information, etc.
On Windows you can use BitLocker probably in some way. Other devices have their built in encryption/decryption tools as well that can be used.
Btw, more suggestions like this one:
Now that OneDrive has unlimited... even more +++ for this request!
+1, complete se of permissions would be welcome. These should be expanded when new features kick in, e.g.:
- if you add feature that we can copy someone else's share to our OneDrive, than that person should have the option to keep us from doing that (in case of read-only permission for example)
Def important feature for our service. This one is behind making shared folders sync, but on the roadmap for sure.
Request for above feature, but adding a welcome point that this should work for any folder: http://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/6677605-provide-rss-notification-on-changes-made-to-onedri
+1. And make an easy to use "feed" in all apps/clients, as well as web, so we can see what's been added/removed/modified.
+1 ... and a link to the same request, but only for point 2. (shared folders) - http://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/6329227-allow-users-to-subscribe-to-notifications-on-a-sha
True. I have read a lot of comments like OP. Web uploads are actually looking better than through the client, though you only have upload than, no sync. With client a lot of people get sync errors, duplicate files, conflicts, and very slow upload speeds.
+1 to this. Not a huge thing, but I see it being useful once you get it and get used to it. Also, such files/folders should "advertise" their expiration date in their properties, so people know they'll expire on that date/time.
Thanks for the suggestion. We’re looking at it.
I agree. I'd bring this to a step higher and allow users to do a client-side encryption and with a per folder encryption key (password). So if I share some really sensitive data I can provide a key/password to receiving party, and a link, and not even Microsoft should have access to these files. Sure, we can encrypt on our own, but security should be built into apps/clients.
