  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Enable syncing from external drives that are Exfat formatted

    Make it possible to sync files from external SSD's/ HDD's that are formatted in Exfat. Exfat is commonly used to use the external drive on Windows and Mac together. At this point this isn't supported by Proton Drive.

  4. Allow users to sync files via web interface.

    Today I ran a test on my Proton Drive account. I added a folder with 3 files in it. On my local copy of the folder, I added a 4th file then tried to upload the folder again. It told me a folder with that name already exists and gave me 2 choices. 1 Replace the existing folder or 2 keep both, with a number added to the name of the second folder. For windows and mac users you have the option to sync a folder with the Proton Drive client. For Linux there is no Proton Drive client. The…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Add an "upload photos only while device is charging" option to the Android app

    OneDrive's mobile app has an option for its camera backup to only backup photos while the device is charging. I would like to see this added to ProtonDrive. I dislike how currently it instantly uploads as soon as the photo is taken.

  8. Add versioning for Excel files

    Each modification to an excel file causes the current version to be replaced during the synchronisation process.
    Enable versioning on this type of file too.

  9. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  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. 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.
