Suggested Improvements to Microsoft OneDrive

Below are some suggested improvements that Microsoft Corporation could make to Microsoft OneDrive, per our extensive use of it.
  • Files that are saved by Office are prioritized over larger files that are pending transfer, such as Microsoft Outlook mailbox files.
  • Option to exclude specific files from the transfer between computers.
  • Option to set the frequency in which specific files are uploaded and/or downloaded by OneDrive.
  • Allow the exclusion or specific sync settings for files over a certain size, such as if there’s a file over 1GB in size, then only sync it every 14 days, so it doesn’t take up the bandwidth of the Internet connection whenever the various computers are opened.
  • Options to limit the amount of space that OneDrive can use, specific to individual computers – so if the size of all the files in OneDrive takes up too much space, the configuration of what files are shared or downloaded or uploaded can be changed.
  • Option to allow different OneDrive accounts per computer.
  • When a file is waiting for upload with OneDrive, due to larger files being in transit already, there should be an option that the file(s) that are waiting for upload to OneDrive, such as those that Office creates, can wait until after the current files transfer. Currently, it crashes.
  • Option to pause the transfer of specific files on OneDrive.
  • In Windows 7, and other versions of Windows, it shouldn’t display that you have to setup, or should setup Backups, if you are backing up your profile to OneDrive or other Cloud Storage services.
  • There should be an easy rollout to configure OneDrive or Other Cloud Drive Services to be a primary backup source, and for synchronizing profiles and information between different computers.
  • Allow the use of multiple OneDrive personal accounts and/or multiple OneDrive Business Accounts with one user.
  • There was an issue of the folder updating and changing the name of the directory to what you type while it changes after it has updated, because it will only rename it to part of the name of the folder or file, up to the point that it is updated.
  • The capability to transfer files locally over the local area network, or directly through different nodes, without having to connect to Microsoft's servers through multiple instances from different computers using the same OneDrive account(s).
