  1. Sync file deletion between local and cloud storage

    In the proton drive app, you choose folders to sync to the cloud. But when you delete a file from Proton Drive, its local copy is not deleted from your computer. However, when delete a local file, its cloud copy is automatically deleted.

    This can cause problems, for example if you rename or otherwise edit a local file that is in a synced folder but whose cloud copy you have deleted, it's going to create a new cloud copy of it.

    My suggestion: Adding two new toggles in the settings. One that would make it so that when you delete…

  2. Folder structure

    Add an option in the windows Proton Drive App, to change the folder structure from:
    "Proton Drive/username/My files/DATA I STORE"
    to
    "Proton Drive/DATA I STORE".

    the current folder structure is unnecessary and confusing, the "username/My files" folders are not necessary if you have only one Proton account.

  3. more space! we should have the option to have 1TB minimum or even up to 4TB.

    500GB is nowhere near sufficient.
    I want the privacy and security proton drive has, but it should really be 1TB at minumim, and we should have the option to add more.
    Way more.

  7. Open documents support (https://opendocumentformat.org/)

    Hi team,

    I want to suggest compatibility with open document formats (https://opendocumentformat.org/).

    I use LibreOffice instead M1cr0s0ft Office since 2012.

    OpenDocument files are zip files with changed extensions, inside, XML and some other formats.

    It is just a suggestion, FLOSS enthusiast will love being able to open (or edit, who knows :D) open document files.

    Regards!

  9. Shared photo albums

    A true, user friendly, encrypted way to create shared photo albums with family and friends, as an alternative to Google and iCloud Photos.

    All people that the album is shared with would be able to add photos to it and every member of the album would receive a push notification that a new photo has been added.

  11. Support for sftp

    Support transfers for SFTP. This could be as simple as a SFTP bridge, one end implementing SFTP, ther other the ProtonDrive bespoke API.

    This would allows me to use rsync and rclone.

  12. drive / document editor / onlyoffice

    Hello world.

    I had to upgrade my account just to see there is nothing worthy in the PM Drive except simple file storage. I will cancel my subscription. It would be nice to only see what is available in Drive for free.

    I am considering move away from Google. But Drive with Document Editor is essential.

    Please consider adding online document editor to PM Drive, for instance OnlyOffice.

    Thanks :-)

  13. Transfer files from Dropbox

    I am excited for Proton Drive and watching its Beta progress. Most of my current cloud storage is on Dropbox. Hoping that Proton will introduce a feature that allows for transfer of files directly from Dropbox to Proton Drive, similar to the import contacts feature from other providers on Proton Mail. A feature like that will be critical to my being able to migrate my files to Proton Drive. Right now my file storage is too large to migrate via download to my desktop, without a laborious multi-step download.

  15. Move photos from photos tab to other folders

    Hi, thanks for making Drive available for Linux. I use Fedora 39 KDE.
    I also use Photo backup via Android (Samsung S23)
    When I open all my files/photos in Linux web browesr, if I right click images, I can move to respective folders. As well as preview, move,rename, get link & delete.
    If I open the folder that uploads Photos, via Android, this option is not available. Only download, upload or delete.
    Perhaps this is a feature in the making?

  16. Scanning documents

    If saving a physical document into Proton Drive, it needs to be scanned first. It would be great to get it into be a pdf-file directly from Proton Drive. Not using a third party app. Take a look at Tresorit to see how they solved it.

  17. Edit and view .txt files in drive

    Would proton drive be better with a built in plain text editor? I think the answer is a resounding yes!

    Plain text documents are the backbone of modern computing. This feature would allow for the quick creation and storage of information like code snippets, sensitive information, journal writing, and much more.

    core features:

    • create new .txt

    • edit new .txt

    • preview/view .txt

    • rename .txt

    • password protect .txt

    eventually:

    • add in line numbers

    • attach file to email

    • group/shared edit .txt file

  18. KeePass automatic syncronization with Proton Drive

    For KeePass users, it would be very useful if there would be a plugin, which allows automatic syncronization with Proton Drive. Similar to the plugin of GoogleSync for Keepass
