  2. 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.

  3. Photo backup by album should save to albums

    In the mobile app I can select which albums to backup on Proton drive. When saved to Proton drive the photos should stay sorted into those albums.

    Additionally, being able to create share links to those albums would be good as well.

  4. Collaborative folders

    File/folder sharing link is inconvenient.
    I manage an organization (for family members) and file/folder sharing within org members accessible by everyone's respective account credentials (including pointers in everyone's ProtonDrive views) is essential. Link+Password sent by email is not a good solution for this very practically relevant use case for organizations.

  6. Improved MacOS application interface

    Currently you can see the status icon of proton drive as a whole in the menu bar for MacOS.

    it would be great if the app had a similar experience to Windows in that you can see the sync activity/history for files being synced to the drive.

  7. Make shared files (from other users) accessible through the shared tab.

    Make shared files (from other users) transferable into the shared folder of the receiver for easier continuous access on long term projects - each time i close the drive i have to access the link in the email again. I do not want to download work files to my system for ongoing reference use.

  8. Proton Drive Android: free up local space by deleting backed-up photos

    Make it easier to clear local storage space. Some options to add:
    Filter photos to show only those that are still on the device.
    Sort by file size.
    Select multiple photos/videos and delete local copy.

    Another possible option: auto-delete local copies of photos and videos after X days, if they have been successfully backed up. (Do not forget to check for successful backup in all of these cases. Sometimes videos are not backed up for whatever reason.)

  9. Multiple passwords for share links

    I'd love to see the ability to add more than one password for a share link that you can individually control and remove. This would add an extra level of security when sharing with multiple people and allow you to better control your opsec. Say one person shares the password without permission, you can effectively kick them off the link by just deleting that one password while still allowing others to access with their own password that you gave them.

  11. Delete phone photos after upload

    Option to delete uploaded photos from phone

    Just uploading pictures is not enough if I need to check and delete the pictures by hand. There should be the option to one-click delete uploaded pictures or do that automatically after a certain time.

  12. Forwarding rule: add "recipient" as a usable condition

    Now only the sender, the subject and the attachment are placeable inside a forwarding rule.
    I would like to forward some messages what comes to one of my alias address only.

  13. Option to Overwrite Older Files

    You have the option to overwrite existing files, but it BADLY needs an option to overwrite only older files, so I can backup entire large folder structures, yet only actually transfer new and changed files. This would slash the amount of time and bandwidth used on both our ends. When I've got newer files sprinkled all through my folders it's not practical to just selectively copy them and choose overwrite.

  14. rclone for photos

    Expose the "Photos" location to rclone. Perhaps allow the user to specify a custom folder name to synchronize photos to. Then rclone could be used to simply sync that specific folder.

  15. Multiple recycling bins for different synced devices

    When syncing a folder on a PC for example, based on the type of folder that is synced, many little files might get deleted and move to the recycling bin regularly, where every other deleted file needs to be searched in the flood if you wanted to recover it.

    If there were different recycle bins, like one for the main drive, one for device 1, one for device 2..., files that you want to recover would be easier to find, as they are already sorted in a simple way.

    Alternatively, if you could filter by paths in the recycling bin,…

  16. Scroll

    It would be great if there was a scroll button that allows us to quickly scroll through our drive like Google has. My family moved to proton for more space and this feature would make it way worth it.

    As well, the images have a hard time loading in the main screen. You have to click an image and let it load before it shows. Videos are worse.

  17. Simultaneous access to multiple Drive to/from single desktop device

    Allow access to multiple drive on the desktop app-simultaneous login, upload to/download from distinct drives to/from single desktop device. Currently, we can access more than one account on the Drive desktop app, but not simultaneously (feature to add account doesn't exist). Also, once logged into more than one account, we should be able to upload and download to each account or from each account using the same device.

  18. Delete local copy of files when logging out

    I would like it if when i log the protondrive app out (from the pc itself or remotely) to have it delete the local files of protondrive aswell.

    When i have used protondrive for a bit on a computer, after that i have to logout and then manually delete the folder to make sure no-one has access to my files afterwards.

    This is a feature that should atleast have exsisted if you remote logout the app from the browser (like dropbox has incase the device is lost / stolen)

  20. Support folder picking on iOS

    When using another app like Logseq or Obsidian, you cannot use ProtonDrive because the ProtonDrive iOS app does not implement NSExtensionFileProviderSupportsPickingFolders.
