  1. 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.)

  2. 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).

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. "Cancelled" tab in upload pop-up of the Webapp interface

    It would be really great to have a "Cancelled" tab when uploading files to Proton Drive. Let me explain.
    Currently, when uploading files (especially if it is a very large number of files) you get a small pop-up showing you the progress of your upload.

    The pop-up has four (4) tabs:
    1) All
    2) Active
    3) Completed
    4) Failed

    CONTEXT:
    However, let's say you were uploading a very large folder (e.g., 30-50GB) which included thousands of files. For some reason, the upload was interrupted and did not finish completely. When you try to re-upload the large folder, most people will…

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
