  1. I am wanting to know what Proton's plans are if the EU goes through with plans to make Proton scan files before encrypting them.

    I use Proton because of the strong privacy laws in the countries where Proton has servers. I know that the first step the EU is discussing is making Proton scan files before saving them for child pornography. But we all know once they have that they will have you scanning files for anything they find objectionable. Will Proton move its servers to a secure country if that law passes?

  2. Option to remove Windows Explorer integration

    The windows Explorer integration for Proton is pretty good overall - but still, I prefer to have my drive apps be as unobtrusive as possible.

    Is there any chance there can be a toggle in the settings of the Proton Drive desktop app to remove Explorer integration?

  3. Don't default move deleted files to Trash, and make this configurable and more transparent.

    I only found out by accident that deleted files end up in an online-only Trash folder instead of being deleted. From a privacy and security centric company I find this quite shocking.

    I would expect at the very last for this to be:

    a) Opt-in, preferably with flexible retention.
    b) Much, much more explicit, and definitely not entirely obscured by the app and only discoverable via the web interface.

    I don't want to have to remember that files I deleted are still stored at online at Proton, and having to go to the web to ensure they're really gone.

  5. Expand/collapse folders in list view

    Currently you can only expand the folders from the sidebar navigation like with Proton Mail. While this works for Protonmail, for a filesystem like Proton Drive it makes navigating a lot simpler and intuitive when you can just do this from the main list view and reserve the sidebar for pinned folders and files.

  6. Change Drive Password System

    My phone is used by many people including my friends. So they know the password of my phone. And because the drive has a device lock system, anyone can easily access it. So it would be better if you use a separate password system on the drive. thank you

  7. Sync parent folder containing subfolders containing albums

    Currently the Proton Drive Android app lets you sync local folders, but with a limitation: if you have a big folder containing multiple subfolders (like that you get out from a Google Photos takeout), the Android app shows all the subfolders individually, instead of letting you choose any of the parent folders. Selecting these subfolders can be tiresome if you have photos spanning 15 years. It would be really nice to have more flexibility in the choice of the folders to sync.

  8. Wifi only option for syncing all files on Android

    Currently uploading files / making files available offline uses whatever internet connection is available, including cellular. There should be an option to make these actions wifi only.

  9. Scroll through photos on iOS

    I noticed that when using Proton Drive with the iOS app, you only have to open one photo at a time to view images. It would be very useful if, once the first photo has been opened, it was possible to view the others by scrolling through them as happens in the web version.

  10. Option for synced photos to maintain original folder structure

    A setting for mirroring the original storage file/folder structure when photos are backed-up would make searching, managing and retrieving files less daunting.

  11. Select over range through months inside of photos

    Select SHIFT doesn't seem to work when doing it over months. It works normally when doing it over individual photos, even across months.

  12. Syncing between devices: support junctions in "My files" folder

    In this folder "C:\Users\WINUSER\Proton Drive\PROTONUSER\My files" that gets created by Proton Drive, a user should be able to include one or more Windows junctions (which point to folders elsewhere on the drive).

    This would allow a user to set up a junction pointing to the same arbitrary folder XYZ on two or more computers, which would keep the contents synced between those computers and the Proton Drive.

    (I have two computers on which I want to keep data in sync.)

  13. Missing file replacement dialog in proton drive app

    Proton Drive Android App is missing the file replacement dialog. Whenever we try to upload a same file in a folder, the app just renames it to <filename>_(1).<extension>, which is super annoying. I need to delete the old file and then upload new. This is not an issue in web client (even on android browser).

  15. Show previews for RAW image files

    As a Photographer, its so important to be able to see previews of my RAW files in my cloud backup, it's currently impossible to find the photos I need easily, which makes it really hard for me to justify moving away from Google Drive, which I'm keen to do.

  16. Choose photo sync folder per device

    Hello,

    It would be good to allow the user to select the folder where Photos are synced to for each device, as done by other services.

    This would be particularly useful when a user possesses more than one mobile device and wishes to keep the photos of each of those devices separate from the others.

    Example:
    Mobile 1: PhotoFolder1
    Mobile 2: PhotoFolder2
    Mobile 3: PhotoFolder1

    Thank you

  17. Set number of times a shared file can be accessed

    I want to be able to share a file with a password that can only be used once.

    My motivation for this is that it greatly helps detect when a breach has happened because the person you're trying to share with won't be able to access the file as somebody got there before them.

  18. Alter documents in Drive without downloading, altering, and re-uploading/replacing

    I would like to be able to interact with and alter/edit documents inside the drive. It is cumbersome to make a simple edit to a document by having to download, alter elsewhere, and then upload and delete the older version.

  19. Programming: No spaces in Proton Drive Desktop sync path ("My files" folder cannot be renamed)

    The root "My files" sync directory where all files reside under contains a space which is problematic for development reasons.

    Currently I have "D:\ProtonDrive\My files\Coding..." and this isn't ideal because it makes dealing with development files tedious in some cases. If "My files" could be renamed to without spaces, this would resolve the issue. The folder cannot be renamed due to Windows permissions (and doing so would probably break things anyway).

    A symbolic link with a spaceless name (e.g. "MyFiles") cannot be created to work around this, again due to permissions (access denied).

    Please allow us to rename the "My…

  20. Do not download "other computers" files by default

    During a second installation of ProtonDrive software on a laptop, I had to re-download dozens of gigabytes from the first desktop PC.

    I wish this could have been deactivated, I would have just retrieved a file or two from the web interface if necessary.
