  1. Support for older versions of macOS

    Currently, the Proton Drive app for Mac is only compatible with version 13 of macOS (Ventura). However, many Mac users operate older versions and may be unable to upgrade due to hardware constraints (older Macs). From an environmental standpoint, it should be able to keep one's computer for as long as it works, and not be forced to trade up just to be able to access a new feature...

  2. Show desktop folders on mobile app

    I'm using the beta Windows sync client and it works well to be able to sync my folders up to the Proton Drive webapp. However, while the sync client allows you to sync any folders on your machine, no folders outside of the ProtonDrive folder on the computer are showing up on the mobile app. On the web all of the folders that sit outside of the Proton Drive main folder show up under a "Computers" navigation. For those of us that have multiple folders across multiple drives can you enable the ability to see "computers" in the mobile app?

  5. Increasing file streaming from 100MB to 2GB

    Proton Drive has a streaming feature, but you can only stream files that are up to 100MB. They should increase it to at least 2GB if not more.

  6. Search bar for mobile app

    Include search bar for proton drive in the mobile app. Currently, the only way to search my drive is if I open a browser in desktop mode.

  7. 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.

  8. Improve drive sync algorithm to greatly improve performance

    Proton Drive is extremely slow to upload my files, it's going at around ~200 Kbps, whereas speedtest.net shows I can do 3.62 Mbps upload.

    This is especially noticeable when there is a large number of small files to sync (eg, photo collection).

    I suspect that a potential cause is that new threads might be created to upload each individual file, resulting in the unnecessary opening and closing of many connections. Perhaps a better solution would be for each upload thread to establish a continuous connection and then pipe multiple files through that connection as raw data, which can be split…

  9. Sync files from one computer to 1 or more others

    I often work on data or files on my desktop, and later move to my laptop to continue working. My understanding of the current sync a folder function is that files from each computer are segregated in the cloud. There's no way to sync a folder on one computer and have that folder mirrored on another. This functionality is like SugarSync.

  10. Include additional directories in the photos backup

    Users should have an option to include additional directories besides /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Camera
    A few examples being:
    Screenshots directory - /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Screenshots
    Screen recordings directory - /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Screen Recordings
    Legacy camera directory - /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/100ANDRO

    My examples are from an Android perspective, but I'm sure iPhone users would benefit from this option as well.

  11. Allow upload photos without WiFi

    Currently the app requires WiFi to upload photos. For those of us with unlimited cellular data it would be nice to upload using this.

  12. Folder info (size, stats)

    In details I'd like to see the number of files and folders inside a chosen folder and it's total size.
    It'd be also cool to be able to see details for a number of selected folders combined, so I could check the info for a few folders placed next to each other.

  13. Implement interface which permits accessing Proton Drive as network share

    As a Linux user I’m using duplicity/deja-dup for my local backups. This backup application also supports several protocols to access remote locations, such as ftp/ftps, nfs, ssh, sftp.
    In order to make use of Proton Drive storage in this context it would be necessary to access Proton Drive via some of these protocols which would be of great benefit since then incremental backups would be possible.
    Currently I can only make a local snapshot backup and then transfer the generated files as a whole bunch which takes considerable transmission time.

  14. Support local encryption at rest

    Support storing Windows (and Mac when the time comes) files downloaded from Drive encrypted on the local disk. Then, support a virtual drive that presents the files as decrypted. Two examples with good user experiences are:

    1. Boxcryptor, which optionally supports folder and file name obfuscation.
    2. Cryptomator, which always forces folder and file name obfuscation.

    I personally prefer the former, but either one will be helpful.

  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. Delete local copy of files when logging out

    I would like it if when i log the protondrive app out (from the pc itself or remotely) to have it delete the local files of protondrive aswell.

    When i have used protondrive for a bit on a computer, after that i have to logout and then manually delete the folder to make sure no-one has access to my files afterwards.

    This is a feature that should atleast have exsisted if you remote logout the app from the browser (like dropbox has incase the device is lost / stolen)

  17. Increase Proton paid plans' storage for free

    "Proton Mail Plus" plan's storage space isn't value for money.
    Mail Plus: 15 GB storage, 48 EUR per year.
    Google Drive Free: 15GB, 0 EUR per year.
    Microsoft 365 Basic: 100GB storage, 20 EUR per year.
    Same goes for Proton Unlimited which is too expensive for 500GB space while other cloud providers offer double storage at half the price.

    I appreciate that Proton offers privacy, security and many Mail features. However the storage space it currently offers is unbearably low for the long-term.
    Please increase storage space a bit without price increase so that it's more VFM and sustainable for…

  18. Replace files in the 'sync queue' with the newer states

    While working on a file, when you save it, proton drive immediately syncs it, locking any future changes from the file. If you want to save the file (locally) again, you have to wait until the its previous save state is uploaded. I think this could be fixed by replacing files in the 'sync queue' with the newer states in the case that the file is updated.

  19. Make shared files (from other users) accessible through the shared tab.

    Make shared files (from other users) transferable into the shared folder of the receiver for easier continuous access on long term projects - each time i close the drive i have to access the link in the email again. I do not want to download work files to my system for ongoing reference use.
