  1. Invalid drive types

    Please allow the location for Proton Drives local storage to be set to a mounted VeraCrypt container. This will give offline local storage for immediate file access while waiting for the new sync to occur.

  2. 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.

  4. Improve context menu with Proton icons

    The right-click menu already exists. It has options for "Always keep on device" and "Free up space". Neither of these options make it clear they come from ProtonDrive. Add a small icon to the left of the option title as many other programs do so users can associate the action with the corresponding program.

  5. Add exclusions for trash folders

    Please add an ability to exclude certain folders from having deleted files landing in trash. We should be able to mark certain folders as excluded, where if they're deleted, they're deleted for good.

  6. Show data for both files when uploading a duplicate.

    It would be VERY helpful if the dialogue that comes up when loading a file into Drive that has the same name would show the basic data for each file - the last modified date and size particularly. That way it would be easy to make a decision whether to replace, rename or skip.

  7. Proton Photos Separation of Devices

    I am excited for Proton to start implement a photo backup system for Proton Drive (I am looking forward for it being on iOS).
    My only request is there to be separation of backed up devices with their own photo gallery.

    For example, if you backed up two phones you would be able to view each gallery separately from each other.

    This would be crucial to me for using Proton's backup system.

  8. Distinguish between uploaded files and local files

    To somehow be able to distinguish between files that have been uploaded and which have not, so that I can delete them locally.
    For instance, sometimes some uploads fail and it is hard to tell which ones and re upload them

  9. Enable multiple file selections for offline availability

    Using the mobile app, currently it is only possible to select one file at a time for making it available offline. It would be useful if we could select more than one as we may not always have Internet access and it is time consuming to have to wait for one download at a time.

  10. Improve Windows context menu

    With windows explorer and Proton Drive alikes, I am used to having contextual menu with options like:
    - Always keep on this device
    - Free-up space
    - See online
    - ...

    It is partially implemented when browsing within the proton drive folder, but it missing with the other synced folders like "Desktop" or "My Documents"

    PS: Along with the contextual menus, it would be nice to have information like sync status appearing in the explorer like with most Proton Drive counterparts.

  11. Viewing Options

    It would be nice to have three folder viewing options (list, thumbnail, large thumbnail). Every view should be independently selectable in each hierarchy level p.ex.:

    Main Folder list view
    Subfolder small thumbnails
    Subfolder content large thumbnails

    If 'list view' is now chosen in one of the hierarchy levels, it automatically applies to all the other levels. The shared folder view is always shown in 'list view' for the recipient. It would be easy, if the chosen view would automatically apply to the shared folder view too (or elegant, if a choice option for the recipient could be offered to change…

  12. Proton Drive should preserve file/folder created & modified timestamps on download

    Proton Drive is currently not preserving the created and modified timestamps of files and folders when downloaded back onto a device (at least not using the Windows client). The timestamps are indeed correctly stored on the server when viewing the items using the web interface. This is already a feature of OneDrive and is important for some users who rely on documents having accurate timestamped objects.

  13. Support ReFS and Storage Spaces for Windows

    I recently received Beta access to Proton Drive. However, it is mostly unusable to me as I cannot have my sync folder on my Storage Spaces drive that uses ReFS.

    Boot drive with NTFS works properly.

  14. Option to choose the type of link to be created for sharing with others: Read only or edit access

    Although the option exist to create a sharing link but the link provides full fledged access, a user should be able to create a link which is still secured by password but is not giving edit access to the person holding the link and the password. The feature already exists in microsoft's "one drive".

  15. Remove "Delete account" from iOS app

    I noticed you can easily delete the account from the iOS Proton Drive app, I think this should removed in case the device falls in the wrong hands.

  16. Make the Files button always go to root folder ("home")

    Proton Drive on iphone:
    I think the "files" button at the bottom should always take you to the root folder
    (same logic and function as on dropbox)

  17. Marked skipped uploads as skipped instead of failed/canceled

    When uploading a folder via web, when prompted with regard to what to do when a file already exists, if you choose skip existing files, those files are then listed in the Failed list, as Canceled.

    This can be confusing, because if you have files that actually failed, instead of being skipped as intended, then you cannot distinguish those from the ones you've said to skip.

    I'd expect skipped files to show in Completed, or maybe some other tab, rather than Failed.

  20. User option to disable Proton Drive link sharing

    The ability to share content from my drive makes me uneasy, in case I did this accidentally. I would be much more comfortable if there was a setting to disable all sharing for the account if user desires.
