  4. Box Drive Install - Convert Synced Files/Folder to Marked for Offline

    After installing Box Drive, the items that were previously synchronized with Box Sync should marked for offline. It is a disincentive for my team to have to resync all these folders. Additionally, the synced link on the web interface does not seem to serve a purpose since it does not reflect the items now marked for offline.

  7. Make Box Drive a NTFS volume

    Box Drive is currently recognized as a FAT32 "installed volume". Whenever I try to copy a file from my NTFS SSD, I get a system message telling me that some file properties cannot be copied.

    I don't know if that can cause any problem in the files content, but it surely hurts our working efficiency, since we have to do an additional click every time we need to upload a file throughBox Drive.

  11. Automatic Sign-Out after period of inactivity, to predetermined time after login.

    I would like to be able to set a time frame that forces user to have to sign back in after a certain amount of time. This would preferably be after a certain time of inactivity, but being able to force someone to enter their login credentials after a set time would also work.

  12. Option to prevent Drive from launching on startup by user

    We are preparing to deploy Box Drive to our users using the Windows .msi. However we've found that after installation, the Box Drive window opens automatically for every user, every time they log into the computer. For users on a shared system who are not using Box, this means dismissing the window every login.
    We'd like an option for Box Drive installation to not have the client launch automatically for all users. Or post-installation, allow the user to tell Box Drive not to open automatically for them. If the Box Drive client needs to run at login for every user,…

  16. Add the ability to mark a folder for offline use (for viewers) when files have watermarks

    In a folder where I'm a viewer, I marked the folder for offline use and a check mark is displayed on the folder, but when I look at the files all have an exclamation point, indicating an error and cannot be viewed offline

  17. Identify version limit limitations

    As limits on versions exists - and the most important for us is having access to the earlier versions - we would like a warning to happen when an earlier version is about to become unavailable - least then we know that we need to make some copies or alterations to how our drive is updating our files.

    Whitelisting which application can access to Box Drive folder by using command prompt. Currently, customer is able to identify which application can NOT access to Box Drive. Rather, Marubeni Corporation ask Box to control which application is able to access to Box Drive folder.

  19. My biggest challenge is version control of files that are shared in multiple box folders.

    Ideally updating master file would then update all the different box files it is housed in that may have a variety of users. I spend more time on version controls and finding the latest one than anything.

  20. Ability to rename the parent directory in Box Drive

    I would like to know if it is possible to rename the parent directory in Box Drive. Right now ti seems that nothing I do, even in the registry, will stop the folder being named “Box”.

    Please let me know if there is any way I can rename this folder to anything other than “Box”.
