  1. "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.…

  2. Add synced computers tab on iOS

    However when I open the iOS app I only see the existing My Files. On my windows computer I've synced, this is nowhere to be found. I don't want to reupload my already synced files into the My Files directory.

  3. Secret folder or Proton Vault

    On several devices, there are multiple applications to create secret folders, such as on Android there is "Gallery Vault" or the Google vault, or the Samsung secret folder, but the problem with these products is that they are products from big brands, or in other cases, bloatware, or adware, or simply unreliable.
    Which is why I suggest creating a Proton Vault, an app to encrypt files in the security of an inaccessible and hidden hidden folder, like, hide it under the mask of a Calculator app, or other ways depending on the user! And with a Proton Drive cloud sync…

  4. 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.

  5. File Search

    Filename based Search functionality within Proton Drive...

    I don't necessarily mean searching for File-Content, this is difficult to achieve in a fully encrypted setting (albeit not impossible, if the indexing tool would run local or in a sand-boxed mode and the actual index database would be stored as a file on the actual encrypted proton drive account.... )

    But rather just a search for file name (even partial names etc...)

  7. Be able to log in with more than one account at the same time in Proton Drive.

    Be able to log in with more than one account at the same time in Proton Drive.
    I mean that the program allows you to do that in at least 2 accounts (ideally in more accounts) But to start with 2 would be fine. The fact of being able to work, for example: with the files from your home account and your work account at the same time. And thus be able to work in the same way as it is done now but with the difference of working with these 2 folders at the same time. Since currently you…

  8. 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.

  9. Collaborative folders

    File/folder sharing link is inconvenient.
    I manage an organization (for family members) and file/folder sharing within org members accessible by everyone's respective account credentials (including pointers in everyone's ProtonDrive views) is essential. Link+Password sent by email is not a good solution for this very practically relevant use case for organizations.

  11. Organize with tags

    Please, it would be extremely useful to implement the tags feature, similar to what already exists in ProtonMail. This makes it easy to organize and find the different types of files on ProtonDrive.

  12. Finder integration that shows sync status

    Like other file sync applications, (e.g., OneDrive, OwnCloud, Dropbox, etc.) I would like to see in macOS Finder the sync status of a file for each file and folder. The 3 states would be sync'd (green checkmark), syncing (orange circle arrow), and not sync'd (red X). This way, the user can quickly tell which files and folders have been sync'd.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Map Viewer for Geo / Location Data in files

    This is similar but more focused than the idea here: https://protonmail.uservoice.com/forums/945460-general-ideas/suggestions/45229390-proton-maps

    This is more about a 'viewer' of files on Proton Drive to open a map UI of items within Drive that have a geolocation. Creating layers/adding geometry (like a google mymaps) is not part of this idea but could be part of roadmap.

    1. View geotagged photos from an album in a map view; or to add/change location of photo (via pan/zoom from the photo view)

    2. Open geo-files in a map view, that is kml, gps tracks, sheet with lat/long, shapefile, geojson... open standards.

    Again, the focus of this idea…

    I miss the capability to connect my ProtonDrive with my Synology NAS by CloudSync or Hyper Backup. This would be one of the last disadvantages compared to conventional cloud providers

  18. 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…

  19. View breakdown of storage

    It would be great if we could see how big folders are in Drive, as well as a nice view of what's taking up all our space. Much like the program WinDirStat.

  20. Password protect specific folders if sharing account.

    It would be nice to have the possibility to assign a password to a specific folder. It's a good solution if you e.g. use your Proton Drive with other family members/friends what so ever.
