  2. Support for differential or byte-level or block-level syncing with Box Drive

    This type of transfer means only the changed parts of the file are transferred instead of the whole file.

    Here's a good explanation:

    This is not technically possible with the current non-persistent architecture of Box Drive.

    When the ‘Box’ folder disappears (whens users quit, update, log out) Windows folder redirection creates a new ‘Box’ folder to continue to redirect content. This forks the redirection out of Box Drive.

    Workarounds have been investigated heavily, but the cost to implement is too large to commit to the roadmap now.

  5. Expose EXIF Metadata in the Box Drive when Media (Photo, etc.) is Uploaded via Box Drive or Web App

    We sort hundreds of thousands of photos taken by our users. We need to be able to sort within Box Drive in a Windows Explorer view, and one of the ways they sort is via the Date Taken attribute.

  6. Have Box Notes Accessed via Drive Open in Box Notes Desktop Application

    Right now, when a user opens a Box Note from Drive on their desktop, the note is opened in the webapp, rather than the Box Notes desktop app they have installed.

    A better flow would be to have those notes open in the Notes desktop app instead

  7. Expose Favorites in Box Drive

    Favorites are becoming more and more popular now that they're better exposed (in the left rail) in the new Web App.

    As such, users expect to access their Favorites list regardless of which endpoint they're using - webapp (supported), mobile (supported), or desktop (not supported via Sync or Box for Desktop).

    REQUEST: Add a 'Favorites' view to Box for Desktop content (somehow) that allows the user to view only their Favorites (files + folders) just like they do in the webapp.

    We currently do not have this planned on our roadmap, though we want to recognize that content sprawl is an issue and we are working to address it!  Please keep the feedback & use cases coming to help us prioritize this in the future!

  14. Folder-Level Sync Controls: Restrict Managed Users from syncing a folder (even if they're an Editor / Co-Owner)

    Be able to disable sync at the folder level regardless of co-owner or editor collaboration level. Users need to be added at these collaboration levels but they should not have the ability to sync certain folders to their machine (e.g., heavily collaborated content).

    Box Shield may be a potential workaround for users interested in restricting syncing of specific content by classifying it. Though this will also prevent any downloads of the content as well.

  15. Change local BfD folder UI to distinguish if collaborators are in folders (like webapp)

    Add UI to local BfD folders to know ownership/collaborators of folders (i.e. yellow = no collabs, grey = external collab, blue = owned externally + collaborators)

  16. Allow users to suppress problem items they do not have permissions to fix

    For example, you are a Viewer Uploader on a folder that contains restricted Windows characters. As a Viewer Uploader, you do not have permissions to rename the folder. Now, your BFD client will forever complain about this folder.

    We will be suppressing server-side problem item (files that cannot sync to Box Drive from Box.com) notifications starting in Box Drive v2.4 in an effort to reduce the noise while we work towards solving this problem in a better way.

  17. Allow Auto-Provisioning from Box for Desktop

    Our current desktop apps (Sync, Box for Office) do not support allowing a user to auto-provision their account during the login process.
