  1. Backup a network drive

    When I attempt to use the Proton Drive Windows app, it requests that I select a folder for automatic backup to Proton Drive. However, it will not allow me to select a network drive.

  2. 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.

    Synchronize ProtonDrive Photo folder with phtoos services like flickr or Google photos, ...
    Hi,

    Loved the new Photos feature in Proton Drive.
    Can you add a feature to synchronize with existing photo storage, such as flickr or Google PHotos ?

  4. File Viewer and Media Player

    I think you should have a file viewer or player for files that are linked to/in your Proton Drive, much like Google Drive does -- not just downloads of such files.

  5. 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.

  6. Proton Drive VAULT / ARCHIVE area that is cloud only and excluded from all app sync operations.

    It would be desirable that a part of your Proton Drive that should only be in the cloud and not visible to the app.

    Currently the Windows app syncs everything:
    * Everything in the directories that you select is uploaded
    * Everything in the "My Files" can be accessed from desktop by cloud stubs that the app creates.

    It would desirable to be able to select what you want from Proton Drive storage to be visible to your Win desktop. This could be done several ways:
    * The app have a button with the options of syncing/not syncing your Proton…

  7. 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?

  8. 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. Containers with own password and 2fa

    Allow the creation of separate proton drive containers where you can setup individual security (passwords and 2fa) for each container. So when you go to proton drive not all containers are always mounted. This has the advantage that if your computer is breached or infected not all your drive containers and files within are directly accessible.

  12. Pause backup photos

    Pause backup photos on Android.
    It is sometimes necessary to delete some photos before backing them up.

    Deleting backed up photos is much slower than deleting photos in the phone gallery, and when automatic backup is enabled, you have to delete photos both in the phone gallery and on Proton Drive.

    Manually turning backups off and on takes a long time because it's deeper in the settings, someone needs to specify yet another folder for backups, and most importantly, when backups are turned on, all the photos on the phone are synced if they're already backed up.

    Thank you.

  13. 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)

  14. Streamlining File Management: Automatic Deletion of Recycle Bin Contents

    I suggest implementing an automatic deletion feature for the recycle bin (or trash folder) contents, where deleted files are permanently removed after a specified time period. This would eliminate the need for manual emptying of the trash folder, adding a convenient touch to file management. While not a critical issue, this enhancement could significantly improve user experience.

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. Quantum encrypted drive

    Tutanota is currently developing a quantum encrypted cloud against the threats of quantum computers regarding encryption algorithms.
    Would be awesome to have that level of protection with proton as well.
    Maybe a collaboration with tutanota, similar to what happend with simplelogin?

  20. Segmentation - Multiple Drives Per Account

    The ability to completely segment a drive and have multiple drives per account would be a good feature. It would ensure that you could share and/or sync specific drives to a desktop app without the risk of unintended sharing data stored on the other drive(s). Additional drives could be purchased as an add-on or users could elect to split their available account drive capacity across multiple drives.
