I would like to see competition between Microsoft’s One Drive’s price and data plans. There are concerns/wants for a smaller data range gap that has a price point comparative to competitors as indicated at https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/12248469-provide-more-storage-plans . The pricing I see from Microsoft does not line up with competitors like Google (can’t count Drobox because they start at 2TB) and from what I can tell, most of us buy Office flat out and do not use Office 365. I cannot speak for those that use Office 365 and if the price point is worth the service received. I mainly use OneDrive for my school work so my concerns/wishes are for OneDrive and not Office 365.
Moving to competitors seems appealing right now considering I can get double the space for the same price and the data to price gaps seem more logical than Microsoft’s. Storage only Case (monthly rates):
5GB – free (some features are nerfed unless premium) / 15GB – free (can use all features of the service regardless of plan)
50GB - $1.99 (some features are nerfed unless premium) / 100GB - $1.99 (can use all features of the service regardless of plan)
1TB - $6.99 / 1TB - $9.99 (has already stated all 1TB plans will be upped to 2TB automatically at no additional charge) but for right now OneDrive is the better deal
Added features of OneDrive that I do not wish to pay for: In your face advertisement in file explorer, PC application, and mobile application. If I am using the “free” stuff I can understand but I pay and should not have to see advertisements especially on my PC (it is creepy to say the least, but I think this is more of a core Windows 10 business model issue that other MS products are getting on the bandwagon).
It would not be fair if I didn’t mention privacy. Hands down I find Microsoft/OneDrive has a better policy and track record (not concerning Windows 10 itself).
I sincerely hope these threads do not go unnoticed before the magic 500 votes (why should I waste a single vote if ideas sit open for a year+?) or are placed in a train of thought of “stupid users” much like many of the support forums run by MS. It places great doubt in me that canned responses are almost always given by MS employees and a good majority of solutions are provided by fellow users and not MS. This situation ranges from MSDN issues, Visual Studio issues (not including Visual Studio code, those peeps are on point and have made using that software very welcoming and you almost feel a part of their team), and OneDrive. Case in point: I was sent a link by a OneDrive team member, to come here. I have yet to see a reply on here from them that has any substance to it. “Thinking about it” status flag from early 2017 or “In the plans” for a year+ with no other response as to something like, “Hey guys, due to limitation X with X we cannot do X with version X but we are considering it for version X+” or “There are legal issues that have to be vetted to implement”. I am sure most of us understand this one due to the way most major companies appear to make additional pocket money (sue the pants off your competitor to stifle their R&D and implementation).

This happens on Windows 10 at random intervals also. Mainly if the right mouse context menu was used to create an empty document while the sync agent is running and immediately edit the document and save. Haven't seen it in a week but it does happen randomly and persists for a few days to a week and then stops.
