  1. Storage Replica one-to-many replication

    SR should support replicating to multiple destinations , such as A to B, C, and D. All with the same volume.

  2. Work Folders Client side awareness of Quota and FSRM

    Currently if we enable quota for Work Folders the client side UI will still all available space on the server.
    It would be good if the client is aware of the quota and can display space available based on quota value and perhaps even UI warning/information based on space available.

    If FSRM have file screening available and you add a file that is not allowed then you will only see a access denied when syncing.
    It would be good if the client could understand the settings and inform the user when file is added or at least better information from…

  3. Separate Front-End to Back-End

    In this moment the role is in the same server and this is not "awesome" for security, in particular when the work folders use the same production file server.

    another scenario is when there's only one Public IP.

    The feedback is have two roles: front-end and back-end to separate publishing from sourcing.

  4. Improve the Storage GUI

    Right now, the Storage GUI does not have the same functionality as the Storage PowerShell cmdlets.
    Especially when doing advanced things with write cache.
    Can you please improve the GUI to have the same capabilities as the cmdlets?

  7. Multi-Tenancy for Service Providers

    Work Folders really provides a great enterprise like scalability at the same time addressing requirements from any customer segments. Many service providers are interested in developing solutions around WorkFolders where they can serve multiple tenants from their Datacenters. However, more guidance is required on how to manage multi-tenancy, challenges, sync issues in low bandwidth scenarios, and any other guidance will be extremely helpful. With storage costs declining, Hosters and Service Providers are eager to provide these services to customers thereby reducing capital expenses for their customers

    You have "Excluded folder" options in User Roaming Profiles, you also need the "Included folder" options as well.

  9. Simplify certificate management from UI for Work Folders server [Separated Idea]

    Today, the certificate management is done through cmd line. It will be nice to add support for managing certificate in the UI.

    MSFT NOTE: This idea was separated from http://windowsserver.uservoice.com/forums/295056-storage/suggestions/8003814-improve-work-folders, which originally contained multiple ideas. Please always supply only one idea in a given posting, so that your supporters and Microsoft can evaluate them easily as single units.

  10. Storage Replica block deduplication for async

    Blocks in the replication log volume could be buffered, deduped and compressed before being sent to an async replica to minimize network link utilization. Example if we would be replicating to Azure public cloud.

  11. DFS Search Server

    At the Moment the Windows Search Server can not be used together with DFS-Shares (very very slow or no results) An Integration between DFS and the Search Server would be very helpful. This would be a big improvement to the Client-Search user experience. Please vote for this idea.

  12. Support Reallocation of VHDs on Storage Spaces

    The struggle is real, my friends. When you have a storage space with 4 disks and create a new virtual disk with parity over all those 4 physical disks, the data is spread out as you'd expect. But if you run low on space and you add another disk, the data already on the vhd cant benefit from the new disk. You have to create a new virtual disk and copy the data from the old to the new one. The problem is described here:

    http://blogs.technet.com/b/askcore/archive/2013/12/18/cannot-extend-simple-virtual-disk-in-windows-server-2012-r2.aspx

    So please let us edit a virutal disk and add more physical disk the…

  13. Better management integration for Work Folders and FSRM

    Today, FSRM and Work Folders management are through different app: Server manager, MMC. It will be good to have one management UI.

  14. Give us the multi resiliency tiering option in standard storage spaces.

    Currently, multi resiliency only works with S2D. It would be incredibly beneficial for those of us with a single node, hyperconverged setups

  16. Work Folders Group Policy

    Work Folders has the scheduled task Task Scheduler Library\Microsoft\Windows\Work Folders\Work Folders Maintenance Work. I need to set this task to run hourly via task scheduler for all users. I was looking for a way to do this via group policy. I know there is a tasks option under GP preferences, but I can not find a way to incorporate this built in task to the GPO. It would be nice to have an admx template or something to be able to push a setting to all computers to run this task on a set schedule instead of just on logon.

  17. Expand Basic volume to the begin

    The expand of a partition on a basic volume (expand to the end of disk, expand to rigth) is a fine thing. But we need in some cases an expand to the begin off the Basic volume (expand to left).
    The possible way convert the Basic volume to a dynamic volume and then consolditate/merge first part of volume (from begin of disk to the begin of the second partition) changed the Basic volume permanent to a dynamic volume (not our favorite).

    It should be possible (and simple?) expand a partition to the left side
    Please do it!

    Example.

  19. Add Support for Storage Spaces in virtual environment and as iSCSI target

    Recently I looked at using an iSCSI target VHDX on a storage space volume in a hosted environment where I don’t have access to Hyper-V, so can’t create a dedup VHDX that the hypervisor uses.

    The reasons I did this was three-fold.
    1. I could create a VHDX using an iSCSI target to a Windows Server running Storage Spaces – hence a VHDX file on a Windows volume that I could dedup.
    2. I now had a dynamic disk so for a space hungry application like DPM that requires overallocation for replica and recovery point volumes, I could create a…
