  1. Remove shares no longer available after the owner was deactivated

    We deactivated one user who retired. The folders he owned disappeared in Box Web for the shared users but they didn't disappear in Box drive, so users could still create files which were not saved in Box.
    Could deactivated shares be updated very quickly in Box Drive to avoid that behavior please?

  2. allow Box Drive to be installed on only one profile of a computer, not all by default

    I have Box Drive installed on my profile of my laptop, which causes issues when my partner logs into his profile - Box Drive tries to open and then hangs, causing delay for him to log on every time. I stopped it from opening on start-up but this change was applied to both profiles, meaning it is now slower for me to get into Drive on my profile.
    I have reported this to Box Support and was told this was the default for Box Drive, that it runs on start up for all profiles and the only way to disable…

  3. thumbnails not working in windows explorer

    We found a known issue with Win10 windows explorer where thumbnails don't load quickly or at all. This is a major problem for graphics, web or content companies. Even average people can't find their pictures easily due to this.

  4. Custom Location Box Folder on macOS Big Sur

    Hi,

    Custom location is working properly on macOS Catalina 10.15. via terminal and configuration profiles.

    We're currently testing and this ability is now lost on macOS Big Sur 11

    Could you guys kindly look into this and see if it could be implemented soon.

    Thank you,

  5. Why we don't have options to pause and resume particular item/all items while uploading

    It would be good to pause and resume the item(s) while uploading and it helps a lot to give priority at basic level.

  7. Box drive sync problem items path

    Please add paths to problem items. In the Problem items box, which shows which folders could not be updated, folders are listed without the paths. So, when multiple folders are named the same thing in different trees, it is impossible to locate which folders are having the problem. I am using the most recent version of Box Drive on Mac.

  8. Allowing the ability to ignore ownership on certain files

    We are trying to store Capture One Photoshoots on Box Drive so multiple people can access them and all adjustments are saved. There is the session file, RAW image files and various files storing the processing settings, thumbnails, etc.

    I can copy a shoot to Box and work on it fine but if someone else tries to work on it, Box won't let the software overwrite the settings file and makes copies of everything with the 2nd persons email address on it. This is related to ownership of the files.

    It would be great if we could turn that off…

  9. Reconcile behavior between Edit and Drive after a conflict

    There is different behavior between Box Drive and Box Edit when uploading after conflicted happened. We would like to change behavior as same as Box Edit. This difference might lead to be confusion for the customer.

    Actual Behavior at this moment:

    Box Drive
    1. User A opens and edits file X without lock via Box Drive.
    2. User B opens and edits file X without lock via Box Drive.
    3. User B saves the file X via Box Drive. Upload the changes as version 2 to file X
    4. User A saves the file X via Box Drive. Conflict happened.…

  11. It would be good have two people collaborate when both use box drive

    Right now, the only way to collaborate is using box drive and MS 365 online-- which has a clunky interface. Would be good to have people working in Box Drive be able to jointly edit documents. Sharepoint Sync allows that to happen, but Box Drive does not.

  13. Add warning/prompt when moving your files to shared directory

    It is possible to lose ownership of your own files by inadvertently moving them to a folder owned by a collaborator. This issue can be prevented by adding a warning or prompt before moving the file if the ownership of the file will be affected by the move.

  14. priority

    Can we have an option to select or prioritize which comes first and so on. So you can setup a priority of uploads to a level of a single file upload.

    Example: have several large files uploading now. and a small file that its not uploading until the large files are done.

    If you can right click on the file and set to "urgent" or "push now".

  15. Code scripts in MONOSPACE font type

    Hi there,
    I have several files, which are coding scripts; they are correctly recognised from browser side (.h, .m, .sh, etc...).
    It would be absolutely USEFUL - both for reading and for sharing to my colleagues - to set the font to a MONOSPACE type one; the actual font is NOT GOOD for developers and for a correct viewing of code(s).
    Is there any possibility to have this feature ?
    Maybe a switch of fonts for single files, or - better - a monospace font associated to file extension(s).

    Thanks in advance. Giulio Rodonò.

  16. can_view_path not reflecting in Box Drive

    We are utilizing the canviewpath api so whenever a folder is collaborated on this feature gets enabled. So rather than a user seeing just the folder they were collaborated in on their root level, they get to see the entire folder structure of where that folder exists. When this feature gets enabled it reflects immediately in the Box web app and the Box mobile app, but not in Box Drive. Sometimes it can takes days before the change takes effect. So during that time the folder is not available to the user in Box Drive. The only fixes…

  17. About character limit of "description" of file property

    Please increase the amount of text you can write in the "description" in the file properties.
    I want to add a long description, but it is inconvenient because of the character limit.

  18. I’m uploading a large directory tree with Box Drive, and I’d like to know the status of the files being transferred. I’ve been reading abou

    I’m uploading a large directory tree with Box Drive, and I’d like to know the status of the files being transferred. I’ve been reading about this in the support area of their web site.

    From the Box website, it appears that the way to do this is by looking at icons next to files which change color.

    There are two issues with this:
    I am blind and use screen reading software that can’t distinguish icons. The Box people need to know about this accessibility problem.
    I’d rather have an overall report. But there’s nothing available in the Box Drive UI.

    I could view my profile, which shows my email address, but when I go to edit the profile, the email address is not visible to alter! Help, I'm deleting my current email address and have replaced it with another.

  20. Increased accessibility of upload status of a file for visually impaired users

    Currently, in Box Drive the only way to check the upload status of a file/folder is to check the folder/file icons. There is currently no way for visually impaired users to check the current status of an upload, or check the status of content being Marked for Offline, since this functionality also relies on the folder/file icons for this information.

    Box should consider a solution to this that would better serve visually impaired and blind users
