  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 2FA protection for certain files and folders

    Drive should have something like the "Personal Vault" from OneDrive.

    Everything in the Proton Drive is available all the time everywhere. As some files are extremely critical, but dont need to be looked at or changed all the time from everywhere, this is a convenient weakness.

    Example: I don't want my Bitcoin recovery phrase on the android app to be be "protected" with a fingerprint, and on the unlocked PC not protected at all.

  9. Improved MacOS application interface

    Currently you can see the status icon of proton drive as a whole in the menu bar for MacOS.

    it would be great if the app had a similar experience to Windows in that you can see the sync activity/history for files being synced to the drive.

  10. 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.

    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 ?

  12. Do not occupy storage when files are deleted in the Trash.

    Give us an option to auto-delete trash after 30 days, and at the same time, do not occupy storage when we delete files. That is, do not occupy storage when files are in the trash temporarily for 30 days. One drive, Google Drive, and many other cloud storage systems work this way. If you implement this, then Proton Drive will be the best of the best. Please send this feedback to your team and developers.
    Thank you

    I want to host a OneNote notebook on Proton Drive. And is it possible to set up Proton Drive to act like OneDrive? I want to store all my documents online if possible, and OneDrive is not encrypted.

  15. Proton Drive Android: free up local space by deleting backed-up photos

    Make it easier to clear local storage space. Some options to add:
    Filter photos to show only those that are still on the device.
    Sort by file size.
    Select multiple photos/videos and delete local copy.

    Another possible option: auto-delete local copies of photos and videos after X days, if they have been successfully backed up. (Do not forget to check for successful backup in all of these cases. Sometimes videos are not backed up for whatever reason.)

  16. Android app; open file from synced folder

    Google Drive allows me to open a file that has been synced on my Android device. Currently, Proton Drive allows me to sync a file to my device but I cannot open the file from the synced directory, edit the file, and then save it back for auto-upload to the cloud. There is little benefit to syncing to my device if I must then "download" to perform an edit and then "upload" the file again.

  17. Shortkey Ctrl+Alt+D to open a quick search bar on Windows

    The user enters a shortkey like Ctrl+Alt+D to pop up a search bar to find a file.

    The idea is the same as Google Drive's shortkey Ctrl+Alt+G on Windows.

    This is a time saver!

  18. Hidden app data folders

    I'd like to propose the addition of a feature allowing applications to create a secret, hidden folder within Proton Drive for storing application-specific data. Similar to Google Drive's app data folder, this would enhance security, isolate application data, improve user privacy, and align with industry best practices.

    Google Drive's app data folder:
