    How do I get an email notification if someone uploads to my onedrive request file link?


    Hi, I've created a file request folder and have shared it via link. However, when people have been uploading to it, I'm not receiving any notification. I think previously when I've shared it directly with users I used to get a notification, ie. person X has uploaded a file. How do I switch on the notification email? Thanks.

    :)

    Uploading files to Onedrive with File Explorer

    Install Teracopy Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm not moving or copying files on my local PC - I'm uploading directly to "Onedrive online". I use Teracopy locally but I can't set an online Onedrive folder as the destination using Teracopy. I Right click on the Onedrive cloud symbol in the Notification area, and click "View Online". This shows all the files stored in the cloud, and I copy directly to it, bypassing the sync function. When copying multiple files duplicates are "Replace" or "Keep Both". I'm looking for a way to choose "Ignore" but there is no such choice.

    Unable to find photographs in OneDrive

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I understand that you are unable to see the Photographs that are uploaded in OneDrive. I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below and check if you are able to find the files:

    1. Login to
      https://onedirve.live.com
      with your Microsoft account.
    2. Check for the folders or files that are uploaded.

    If you are unable to find the photographs, I suggest you to get in touch with the OneDrive support team.

    Sign in to OneDrive.com from any browser, click the ‘?’ help icon on the top banner of the page and select
    Email OneDrive support. Submit your question and follow the prompts to request support.

    Hope it helps.

    OneDrive keeps uploading files I've deleted

    Hello! AmericanGrimoire

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community

    It's possible that OneDrive is still syncing the deleted files from your desktop to the cloud. Allow me to ask:

    • Are you using OneDrive for Personal? or OneDrive for Business?
    • Can you still see the deleted folder in https://onedrive.live.com/ ? If you are I would suggest deleting it in the OneDrive.com since this is the cloud server of OneDrive.
    • I would like to know what @domain and who is hosting your email account? example for @domains: Gmail.com, Yahoo.com, Outlook.com/Hotmail.com
      • May I know if the account is for Work/School use? or Personal (Hotmail/Outlook.com) use?

    To stop this, you can try the following steps:



    1. Pause OneDrive syncing: Right-click on the OneDrive icon in the system tray and select "Pause syncing". This will stop OneDrive from uploading any new files.



    2. Clear OneDrive cache: Open the Run dialog box by pressing the Windows key + R, type %localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\onedrive.exe /reset, and press Enter. This will clear the OneDrive cache and reset the app.



    3. Unlink and relink OneDrive: Right-click on the OneDrive icon in the system tray and select "Settings". Go to the "Account" tab and click "Unlink this PC". Then, sign in to your Microsoft account and relink your PC to OneDrive. Unlink and re-link OneDrive - Microsoft Support

    Note: No data will be lost by unlinking and re-linking your OneDrive, your local folders are just disconnected from the cloud for a short while. Any changes made while you're unlinked will be synced once re-linking is complete.



    4. Exclude the folder from syncing: If the above steps don't work, you can exclude the folder from syncing by right-clicking on the OneDrive icon in the system tray, selecting "Settings", going to the "Account" tab, clicking "Choose folders", and unchecking the folder you don't want to sync.



    I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions.

    Thank you,

    Vince
