  1. Box Drive: Display pop up warning when content is moved to external folder

    Just like below warning pop-up displayed in WebApp, Box Drive shall pop up a warning to let the user know the item ownership will be changed to external user, when moved to external folder. (also to prevent accidental moves)

    Change Item Owner
    By moving this item you will be transferring ownership to John Doe (john.doe@boxsample1[.]com) at Box Sample1 Company. In some cases, you may not be able to undo this action based on restrictions in the destination location.

    Thank you for the suggestion. We currently do not have this planned on our roadmap. We will place this in our backlog as we continue evaluating ideas to improve Box Drive.

    Please keep the feedback & use cases coming to help us prioritize this in the future!

  2. Mac quick look

    Box Drive needs the ability to show thumbnails in Finder on Mac and I need to be able to quick look the files even that have not been previously opened. If this isn't coming, I will be switching back to box sync.

  3. Select folders from hard drive to sync with box

    Rather than syncing to a separate Box folder on my desktop, I would an application that would make it able to flag folders and files that already exist on my hard drive. I would very much prefer to be able to open my Windows Explorer and right-click on a folder and make a selection that would automatically sync that folder from where it is in my hard drive to Box.

  4. Organize and Move Shared Folders Within Non-Shared Folders

    I would like to organize folders that have been shared with me within folders that I myself have created and do not share with others.

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. SQ1

    I purchased a new Microsoft Surface Pro X and it uses a Microsoft SQ1 processor. Box Drive currently does not work with this processor. As we are rolling out these Surface Pro X's with our company it would be great to get box drive to work with the new SQ1 processor.

  13. Popups

    When someone who is not logged in and doesn't have an account uses a public link to a folder in order to download a file, they get a popup that says "Your download is in progress," but at the bottom it says "In the meantime, log in to Box to save files you view in your Recents and upload, share and comment on the content you care about most."

    That text is very misleading and is confusing people when they're just trying to download files. Can I disable that popup? If not, I strongly urge you to revise the way…

  14. 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.

  15. Box Drive Warning When File Path is too Long

    There is a known issue with Box Drive that if a file path is exceeds a character count limit, then the file cannot be opened on desktop, however it can be opened via Box on the web. The issue is, when a user has a file on their desktop, that has a current file path within the character count limits, then moves the file to Box Drive within Windows Explorer and the new path in box exceeds the character limits. As of now, the user can copy and paste into Box Drive and not realize that their new path will…

  16. Automatic locking of files specific extensions or program

    Enable automatic locking of files with a specific extension or program. There are multiple users who use CAD files for example and every time another user opens the file, Box creates an additional file with the same name and a different version. In CAD, users open multiple files and locking each individual file becomes too much of work for the users.

  17. multiple users in one document

    Create a notification that pops up inside the document when two users have the same document open and when one user makes changes. This feature is in Drop Box and helps cut down on multiple versions of the same document being saved.

  18. Identify locally any failed uploads

    Hi, we have had users send entire folders with dozens if not hundreds of subfolders up to Box via Box Drive. In some cases, since they aren't reviewing all of the content they are uploading, there are some failures (inappropriate file or folders names, unsupported file types, etc). Box Drive names the failed uploads but offers no way to identify them in the Box Drive folder structure on the local machine. There are no icon changes that might identify those containing folders which have the failed uploads within them. A simple right click in the notification to show the offending…

  20. Indexing Box Drive Offline Files

    I have access to a number of folders that I don't need frequently (if at all), but I do have a select group of folders that I use daily, and I keep these stored as files available offline. I recently migrated from a computer that used Box Sync to a computer using Box Drive, and I was very disappointed to find that I couldn't search my offline files using the windows file explorer. Instead, I'm forced to use the Box Drive search window, which requires that I search ALL of my folders, which frustrates many of my directed searches.

    I…
