  1. Sync Photos folder with desktop app

    With the Android app we can now backup our photos to the Photos category/folder in Proton Drive and we can view these in the web app.

    Please add the option to sync these photos to a computer folder with the
    desktop app as well.

  2. Increasing file streaming from 100MB to 2GB

    Proton Drive has a streaming feature, but you can only stream files that are up to 100MB. They should increase it to at least 2GB if not more.

  3. Support older macOS versions

    Currently, the Proton Drive app for Mac is only compatible with version 13 of macOS (Ventura). However, many Mac users operate older versions and may be unable to upgrade due to hardware constraints (older Macs). From an environmental standpoint, it should be able to keep one's computer for as long as it works, and not be forced to trade up just to be able to access a new feature...

  4. Search bar for mobile app

    Include search bar for proton drive in the mobile app. Currently, the only way to search my drive is if I open a browser in desktop mode.

  5. Show desktop folders on mobile app

    I'm using the beta Windows sync client and it works well to be able to sync my folders up to the Proton Drive webapp. However, while the sync client allows you to sync any folders on your machine, no folders outside of the ProtonDrive folder on the computer are showing up on the mobile app. On the web all of the folders that sit outside of the Proton Drive main folder show up under a "Computers" navigation. For those of us that have multiple folders across multiple drives can you enable the ability to see "computers" in the mobile app?

  7. Move photos from photos tab to other folders

    Hi, thanks for making Drive available for Linux. I use Fedora 39 KDE.
    I also use Photo backup via Android (Samsung S23)
    When I open all my files/photos in Linux web browesr, if I right click images, I can move to respective folders. As well as preview, move,rename, get link & delete.
    If I open the folder that uploads Photos, via Android, this option is not available. Only download, upload or delete.
    Perhaps this is a feature in the making?

  8. Synchronize deleting Photos

    When deleting a photo from your gallery, it should be removed from Proton Drive Photos as well, and vice versa. It is really inconvenient having to go to both apps to delete photos you've taken. It should still also be possible to free up space on your phone by deleting local copies, maybe through the Drive app.

  9. Allow upload photos without WiFi

    Currently the app requires WiFi to upload photos. For those of us with unlimited cellular data it would be nice to upload using this.

  10. Improve drive sync algorithm to greatly improve performance

    Proton Drive is extremely slow to upload my files, it's going at around ~200 Kbps, whereas speedtest.net shows I can do 3.62 Mbps upload.

    This is especially noticeable when there is a large number of small files to sync (eg, photo collection).

    I suspect that a potential cause is that new threads might be created to upload each individual file, resulting in the unnecessary opening and closing of many connections. Perhaps a better solution would be for each upload thread to establish a continuous connection and then pipe multiple files through that connection as raw data, which can be split…

  11. Folder structure

    Add an option in the windows Proton Drive App, to change the folder structure from:
    "Proton Drive/username/My files/DATA I STORE"
    to
    "Proton Drive/DATA I STORE".

    the current folder structure is unnecessary and confusing, the "username/My files" folders are not necessary if you have only one Proton account.

  12. Delay for photo backup

    Currently Proton Drive uploads photos/videos as soon as they are taken.

    But sometimes you want those deleted immediately. And by the time you delete them from the local gallery, Proton Drive has already started uploading them, meaning you now have to wait until it's uploaded so you can also delete them from Proton Drive.

    A delay of maybe 5 minutes before starting the upload would be incredibly helpful in this situation.

  13. Sync files from one computer to 1 or more others

    I often work on data or files on my desktop, and later move to my laptop to continue working. My understanding of the current sync a folder function is that files from each computer are segregated in the cloud. There's no way to sync a folder on one computer and have that folder mirrored on another. This functionality is like SugarSync.

  14. Share Photos folder

    It's great we can finally sync our photos automatically with Proton Drive, but now, we'd like to share them.

    I would like to be able to share the whole folder with people from my family account.

    Congrats for all your great work !

  15. View only permissions for share link (no download option)

    I would love to see a feature in share link settings that would block/remove the download option. Useful in cases where you want people to be able to preview photos for example, but not be able to easily download them. This wouldn't stop tech-savvy users but would provide some friction against the average user downloading things you may not want them to.

  17. Implement interface which permits accessing Proton Drive as network share

    As a Linux user I’m using duplicity/deja-dup for my local backups. This backup application also supports several protocols to access remote locations, such as ftp/ftps, nfs, ssh, sftp.
    In order to make use of Proton Drive storage in this context it would be necessary to access Proton Drive via some of these protocols which would be of great benefit since then incremental backups would be possible.
    Currently I can only make a local snapshot backup and then transfer the generated files as a whole bunch which takes considerable transmission time.

  18. Folder info (size, stats)

    In details I'd like to see the number of files and folders inside a chosen folder and it's total size.
    It'd be also cool to be able to see details for a number of selected folders combined, so I could check the info for a few folders placed next to each other.

  19. Increase files per folder limit beyond 30,000

    I might be an edge case, but I regularly use Cryptomator to encrypt my local files. The problem is Cryptomator creates a large number of small files within a single folder. Needless to say, I cannot change the file structure without causing issues with Cryptomator, but I've blasted well beyond the 30,000 file limit. I'm a hair under 60,000 and I have heard of people who have far more files than I do.

    This limitation makes Proton Drive significantly less useful as working with the contents of these vaults is my day to day work as I switch between my…

  20. Include additional directories in the photos backup

    Users should have an option to include additional directories besides /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Camera
    A few examples being:
    Screenshots directory - /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Screenshots
    Screen recordings directory - /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Screen Recordings
    Legacy camera directory - /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/100ANDRO

    My examples are from an Android perspective, but I'm sure iPhone users would benefit from this option as well.
