  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Encrypt desktop application (lock / auto lock)

    Desktop application does not currently have lock ability. There should be a way to lock the drive. We should also have the ability to auto lock after a while.

  5. Share Photos folder

    It's great we can finally sync our photos automatically with Proton Drive, but now, we'd like to share them.

    I would like to be able to share the whole folder with people from my family account.

    Congrats for all your great work !

  8. Offline access in Linux Proton Desktop app

    I was very pleased to see the release of the Proton desktop app for Linux. This feature may be coming along with the full release, but it would be excellent to have offline access to my mail and calendar through the app.

  10. 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.

  11. 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?

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Use QR code to share files/folders

    QR codes for sharing Proton Drive files/folder URLs. It would make sharing links from a desktop to phone MUCH easier. Not to mention safer. I'm using an online QR code generator. God only knows what they are doing with that data.

  17. Save to external drive

    Saving to external drive.

    I have a mac mini with 256GB on it. After installing all the apps and documents that I use, more than half of it is used. Not to mention the caches, temp, backup files, etc.

    I use Box and other online storage and they have options to where to store their files so I use an external drive to store my files synced with the online storage apps that I used.

    I would love to see Proton Drive to have the option to store the files.

  18. 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.

  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. "Mimic Dropbox"

    Like many, I am used to Dropbox, but I know it is a weak option for online storage. I have Proton Mail, VPN and Drive and like your products. However, I am struggling to get into the habit of using Drive as it feels different from Dropbox. So I am suggesting that, without changing the Drive app, you simply put together a little help file explaining how to create a local folder on a PC or Mac that is fully sync'd across all devices such that a file placed or edited on any device is replicated across all other devices.…
