  1. Upload In The Order We Added Them + Reorder

    I don't understand why Box Drive decided to upload files in a completely random. Say that I add a number of files, then later add another bulk of files, it will start uploading them or a whole random different selection. Why doesn't it upload them in the order I added them (first come, first serve).

    A bonus would be to reorder your uploads, so if some become more of a priority.

  4. Overview of Synced Folders

    It would be useful to be able to see all the folders you’ve synced to your hard drive.

    I often have to make large graphics files available offline so I can work on them. I’m typically working across 40+ projects with other people picking things up at various points, so it’s easy to lose track of what’s still active. As such, hard drive space fills up.

    Currently, managing files requires hunting through massive directory trees for anything that has a little green tick. Or the less labour intensive but equally daunting option of ‘going nuclear’ and unsyncing everything and starting…

  5. Box drive hide folders

    With Box Drive ALL my folders are displayed on my desktop. While I like having access to them all without having to sync them, I would like a feature which would allow me to hide the folders I am not currently using. The Box Sync environment, which only showed those folders that I was currently working in (and had synced), was a much more efficient solution.

  9. Ability to perform file operation through directory command prompt

    File operation by operating by command prompt.
    Is there any way to operate the files and metadatas from the pointed directory?
    As far as I heard from SE, the answer was "no".
    For example, extract all the metadata in each filed from the pointed filename expantion and from the pointed directory by one command.
    It will be great if we could use this Box Drive by operating like linux or command prompt.

  10. Hide/restrict files from view in a shared folder

    I would love to see the ability to hide/restrict viewing options for a single file/item within a Box folder.

    For example, only 3 people would need to be able to view and edit this file although 20 people may have access to the shared folder itself. The other 17 individuals would not know the file is listed there because they do not have viewing access.

    This would help reduce the need to save that file's information someplace separate from the rest of the pertinent folder information.

  12. Box Drive Path in MacOS

    Now I am updating my MacOS. According to "https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/4407737091219-Using-Box-Drive-on-macOS-File-Provider-Extension-FPE-mode", my box path was changed from "~/Box" to "~/Library/CloudStorage/Box-Box". It is inconvenient to search files in my editor because the files are located far away from my home directory. Can I fix this issue? Dropbox is still located "~/Dropbox".

  13. Ability to view file menu without zooming out

    In order to see the entire "More options" menu for a specific file, I need to ZOOM OUT. It cuts off even on a larger monitor/resolution at 100%.

    If I could attach an image to show an example, I would.

  14. File Explorer Search Capabilities on Box Drive

    Box Sync allowed for File Explorer searching. Box Drive does not.

    This is a HUGE negative.

    When will this be fixed?

  17. "Show File Location" for Files Currently Uploading Through File Explorer/Finder

    At this time, Box Drive only lists the File Name when checking the "Transfers" menu of synchronizing items. No indication is given as to where this syncing is taking place. The User is forced to memorize the location of an upload/download until it has completed.

    I'm currently experiencing an issue where many large files (Gigabytes) are forever uploading after an unknown error restarts the upload upon completion. The only solution I've been given is to Log Out, thus deleting my Terabytes of Available Offline files. "UnsynchronizedFiles" in AppData proves to be unhelpful with certain errors.

    Box Drive should allow the…

  18. Enhance sorting (alphabetical order)

    We use box for our law firm. We often have hundreds of exhibits in a folder. For example: "Exhibit 1 - XYZ Transcript." The exhibits should be listed in alphabetical order, so that Exhibit 1 is first, Exhibit 2 second, so on. But when there is an "Exhibit 11" that becomes the second exhibit listed, "Exhibit 12" the third exhibit. Please build an option to fix this so that they are put in the correct alphabetical order.

    Using lettering rather than numeration doesn't help because there usually more than 26 exhibits.

  20. Add auto-lock/unlock feature in Box Drive or provide a configuration tool

    Add auto-lock/unlock feature in Box Drive or provide a configuration tool

    In Box Drive v2.21, it is possible to enable the ability to automatically lock/unlock files when they are opened in Box Drive by modifying the registry.
    However, it is difficult for end users to modify the registry, so we would like to see Box Drive include the feature to automatically lock/unlock files, or provide a configuration tool (such as a batch file for registry modification) to modify the registry.
