    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.

    +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.

    Luka commented  · 

    +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:

    +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.

    Luka commented  · 

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Low on votes, but this deserves a +1. It just makes sense to keep things divided at least in subfolders as suggested

    We’ll consider this in the future. Right now it’s not high on our backlog (just being transparent).

    +1 comment for attention. This should be higher on the list, as it will also lower the load on MS infrastructure. This should also be a smart sync, similar to what's already available in corporate environments through the "branch cache" feature in Windows Server (sync in lan, cache files in LAN, sync from others even when Internet is not available, checking for version online vs cached, etc). Combined with differential sync that Mike linked and deduplication (syncing files only once, even if they are in different folders) should make a huge difference in both user experience (speed, responsivness) and like I've said in loads on MS servers. Don't think about this as just a new PC setup and such, with Camera Roll on all phones, each time I come home my phone uploads pictures/videos, and my PC than downloads it from OneDrive cloud... why if it can sync to my phone directly? If it was smart it would even recognize that PC is stationary device, and phone would sync quickly to PC, and than PC would finish the upload to OneDrive cloud (online) even if phone goes offline or leaves the network (as most people would wisely turn the Camera Roll sync to WiFi only). Imagine possibilities when linking to home server setup, streaming videos from OneDrive on tablet (and having them stream from local PC/server instead, all through OneDrive) and so on. So many possibilities, but will never be there if this feature stays low in the to-do list...
