    I've found that this idea doesn't work well since e-mail providers limit the size of file attachments. This limit used to be 10MB. Comcast now has a 25MB limit. But even that's often not enough for video files or big sets of photos. So, sharing a link is a much better idea, in my opinion, and is the method I always use.

    I have my OneDrive files synced to my drive C:. So even when I specify "cloud only" storage, I can still select multiple files from "cloud only" storage.

    I have the same problem. To solve it, I always name a file by a content description phrase, and then prefix it with a sortable date, such as:
    2019-05-14 Family BBQ

    Oh yeah, I've spend hundreds of hours attaching descriptive photo information to the EXIF sectio of my JPEG files. They used to display pretty well up to about January 2020, but then in the months following, they dropped the display of this information, saying it was "by design" but refused to say the reason. I'm really upset about this.

    I, too, found it slow to view a hi-def video, which displayed in a distorted (due to excessive compression) and jerky fashion. I exchanged many e-mails with the support staff, but never did get an answer. They did say this was normal. Yet I uploaded the same video to YouTube, and it played back fie. If OneDrive is slow for a reason, they should explain the reason.

    This is one of my major gripes too - a lack of true support. For example, I've repeatedly e-maild a support member about dropped functionality, claiming it was a bug. But they repeatedly said it was a technical design decision to drop this key feature. I repeatedly asked "why?", but they could never give me an answer. This is some of the worst product support I've ever seen from a large company.

    Absolutely a feature of high importance to me. I have found that it takes a long time to ZIP the files I want downloaded, download them,, and then a long time to unZIP them. Most of the files I download are photos or video files, so ZIPping and unZIPpig them simply wastes time and disk space. This is a sorely needed feataure.

    Absolutely. AT LEAST, publish what the video download bitrate is. It would also be helpful if you would compare this to what YouTube offers in terms of video download bit rate.
