  1. Sort Drive Search results by metadata

    Currently you are unable to sort results in Drive Search, and you need to rely on searching based on keywords and sorting through the limited results. It would be helpful to sort on available metadata, similar to a traditional File Explorer, like name and last modified in order to better find that content we are looking for.

  3. Enable sync of files with lnk extension through Box Drive

    Box Drive will not sync files with a .lnk extension. We would like to be able to sync these as they are valuable in certain circumstances and are not hidden/system files.

  4. Increase the start-up speed of Box Drive. It is SOOO slow to start!

    Every time I have to restart my computer it takes Box Drive a good 5-10 minutes to start. This is unacceptable for such a large enterprise like this. Even accessing my offline files cannot be done until Box Drive completely starts.

  5. We would like to change the icons for Box Drive to appear different for a shortcut vs network drive.

    We would like to change the icons for Box Drive to appear different for a shortcut vs network drive. We encountered an issue and confusion with Box Drive. One day, Box Drive didn't start up. We assumed that the shortcut icon on the desktop wasn't working properly. Therefore, we went to [C:\Users*UserAccount*] and found a shortcut icon which was exactly the same as the one on the desktop. We thought this icon was the shortcut to Box Drive, so we moved this shortcut icon to the desktop, and all of a sudden, the contents in Box were all moved to…

  7. Display pop-up notification to let users know that Box Drive is able to be started

    Please display a pop-up notification to let users know that Box Drive is able to be started (or in other words, users are able to open contents).

    We own a lot of content - this makes Box Drive take a long time checking the updated contents and starting up.
    This is causing delays of Box Drive being launched.
    If a notification pops up when Box Drive is ready to start accessing contents, users would not have to check the status of Box Drive so frequently.
    Instead, they could work on other things while waiting for Box Drive to start.

  8. Choose location for files marked for offline

    Similar to Box Sync, would love to be able to choose a specific location for files marked for offline use in Box Drive. At least we could see the thumbnail previews.

  9. Box drive - DIsk full because of "offline files"

    The hard drive of my computer is full (or a small free space available) because Box Drive is using a large part of the free space to load files that I don't want to see, they should stay in the cloud. I want to see on my computer only the files that are configured for "Off Line" access. Today there are more than 50 Gbytes on my computer that are useless.
    With box sync, I didn't get this issue, it's a new problem specific to box drive.
    It's a critical issue, my computer is running slowly because there is only…

  10. Archive folders

    Ability to manually or automatically archive folders that have not been modified for a while. The Archived files are searchable, but don't appear in normal file system (similar to how Gmail's archived emails don't show up in Inbox, but can be searched)

  11. Ability in Box Drive to have documents physically stored on PC or external driver

    In Box Drive it would be good that the documents are physically on our PC in offline mode, not just a memory copy (metadata).

  12. Box Drive performance

    Drive is unstable and crashes quite easily when many items are copied. We hope Drive be robust and stable enough for batch/powershell scripted copy/move/etc.

  13. Support Emojis in file names

    Box currently does not support Emojis in filenames, which means it won't sync if I drag and drop a file from my desktop into Box Drive. It would be great if Box would support the same characters in file names as current OSes

  14. Ability to sync individual files,

    The ability to sync an individual file would be very useful. I often just need a few files if i'm on a flight for example and don't need the whole folder. Copying into a new folder just to sync an individual file is not a great solution.

  17. box drive metadata

    With some of the new updates coming to Metadata, I'd like to request that Box Drive be able to support updates to Metadata on a folder/file.

    As a start, a context menu option that would take a user directly to the metadata page.

  18. Allow Box Drive Folders to be added to Windows Library

    My company has a lot of folders on Box, but only a few are relevant to what I do. In order to facilitate quicker access to the folders I use I created a Windows Library (Windows 10) and attempted to add the Box Drive folders I use to the Windows Library. But my attempts to do this resulted in Windows displaying a message "This folder can't be included because it is on a removable device" even though the Box Folder is on my Computer's C Drive. This capability works fine with Box Sync, but not Box Drive. Please make it…

  19. Add options to control cache size on Box Drive for mac/windows

    In particular, there should be a setting to specify the maximum cache size, or an option to have it be up to a certain percentage of free disk space (eg 30% by default, similar to the iPhone app). There should also be a screen that shows how much disk space the cache is currently using and a button to clear the cache with one click.

  20. Silently sign in users to Box Drive using their Windows Credentials.

    “Enable silent account configuration. For info, see Silently sign in users to the OneDrive sync client with their Windows credentials. If a device is not already joined to Azure AD, enabling this setting will join it.”
