  3. Comments / Tasks from Desktop (Box Drive)

    In order to currently leave a comment on a file we have to right click on it, click on view on Box drive, which opens chrome, loads the file, then click on the comment icon on the right and then leave our comment

    A quicker and much simpler way of doing this would be to bring in comments and tasks into the box drive app to save us all of those steps of having to do this through our browser. There are a couple ways of doing this

    1) Bring in notifications, tasks and a comment stream into the system…

  4. Provide a way to "pause" syncing of files marked for offline

    Allow a use to stop/pause syncing of files that are marked for offline access. We have multiple users who travel and are on metered connections but still need access to the internet and their offline files.

  5. Different Reference method to the Box location

    I need to be able to refer to a Box Drive location independent of a drive letter - Six users. Five users have box configured to sync to c: The sixth user has to have the location on his D: drive, due to space limitations (and big "Box" size).

    we need some way to refer to these files in some other more universal method (LIKE a UNC path... or \127.0.0.1\BOX\ or YOU NAME IT ) so that the SAME reference will work, whether someone's Box drive is on C: or D:

  6. Box drive to support SAML-based authentication

    We use Okta as a primary authentication method for Cloud-based applications like Box.
    Would like to see Box Drive to support for either redirect to main iDP configured at box account or naively support SAML-based authentication.

  8. Set Box Drive as a Default Save Location in Windows

    With box Sync we could set Box locations as default save locations. Apparently that isn't currently available with Box Drive... this would be a great feature if possible!!

  9. Drive and Sync

    It should be impossible to have both Box Drive & Box Sync installed and working on the same machine. An install of one should automatically be impossible until the other is removed from the machine.

  10. DLP

    When copying content from Box Drive to an external volume, Sophos DLP is unable to capture information about this event.

    According to the Sophos team, this is a result of Box Drive relying on a legacy file system filter driver, CBFS.

    It is suggested that Box update Box Drive to work with Windows file system minifilter drivers as opposed to CBFS. That way DLP could monitor and capture these events.

    Statement from Microsoft regarding legacy file system drivers as opposed to minifilter drivers: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/ifs/blocking-file-system-filter-drivers

  11. Better functionality for viewing photo libraries

    We have folders of photos - Box is not great either in browser or in Box Drive to review this. In Box Drive, i guess it struggles to cache all the thumbnails fast enough so it is effectively unusable

  12. Synchronize changes between Box Edit and Box Drive for Excel

    The file which is referred from external, if we edit , save download and upload, we need to save original Excel from Box Edit. The customer does not want to open Edit only for this.

    For example, there are two excel ExcelA and ExcelB. Excel B is referring the data from ExcelA.

    ExcelA was created via Box Drive and ExcelB was from Box Edit.

    If Excel A was modified, then open ExcelB, but the modification is not reflected to ExcelB.

  13. Add Description field in Windows Explorer

    It would be a great feature if Box Drive could be integrated so that the "Description" meta field on the Box website is populated into the actual Description field when files are viewed on Box Drive locally on a desktop (i.e. adding the "Description" column to the view in Windows Explorer).

  14. Box Drive and Time Machine

    You seriously need to work on your time machine issues. Almost all my data are gone, as in GONE, also from the trash bin that you just empty every 30 days. Thanks for hours of work that I will have to put in now to restore data from time machine. Yes, important data. Data that hold HOURS of hard work.

  15. Request for Long-Term-Support (LTS) release for Box Drive

    we request for Long-Term-Support (LTS) release for Box Drive.
    Currently, box drive is updated too much frequently, therefore it is very impossible for us to upgrade Box drive to latest version in a adequate timing (when we upgrade box drive, it takes long time to validate and install box drive every time).We would like to use box drive as long as possible in the same version: Long-Term-Support (LTS)(We do hope that support term should be at least longer than 6 months) .

  18. Need to be able to display the whole file name on the All Files page.

    Need to be able to display the whole file name on the All Files page. Even very long file names vs. the 3 dots. The current feature that allows you to make the "Name" column a little wider is not nearly enough. Users should have the option to display the entire name if they wish.

  19. See and share full path from Box Drive

    A function that enables to share Box Drive location/path between users.

    When using Box Drive on a daily bases, it is inconvenient that the user needs to open the link on the browser once to identify the specific location/folder path.

    It would improve to shorten the work flow if the users can see the full path from Box Drive so that they don’t have to go through the process to open box.com.

  20. Box Drive IO performance abysmal

    The performance of box drive read/write operations is sometimes a bit slow (10%) and other times abysmal.
    Based on tests, scrubbing through timeline in an editing software like premiere pro is jittery whereas it is fast on onedrive which I believe does delayed sync and doesn't impact IO that much.
    When unzipping a file containing numerous files and folders however the performance is so bad that it's not doable, it's in the neighborhood of 40x slower so a throughput of 140 MB/s turns into 3MB/s

    recommended actions: optimize IO of the mount point, providing option to turn off on the…
