  1. [Files] Improvements on Files module


    1. I'd like to be able to select multiple files/folders for actions like delete/download

    2. I'd like to to be able to see the properties of a folder (or more if many are selected), specifically the total size

    3. I'd like to be able to see the NTFS permissions of a file or folder. It would be good if we could change the permissions as well.

  3. [Files] Drive Free space and Total Directory size

    Estimate directory size in Files tool. The column is already present but istead of "-" the progress and then estimation of directory total disk space used by that directory. I know its a huge work but it will be extremly useful. Calculation can be requested by the user clicking on a function that start the job. Also very important is to have a quick overview of total/free disk space when listing for system drives in the 'This PC' section.
    Thanks!

  4. [Files] - Visual representation of Free Space

    Using traditional RDP & Explorer you get a visual representation of the free space of a drive which is something I have grown very fond of. Currently you need to compare the free space with the total space to get a rough gauge in your head what percentage is actually free. I would suggest either removing the free space column and replacing it with a graph similar to what we see in explorer now, or at the very minimum add a (%) value for each free space entry so we can easily see oh its only 1% or 15% or…

  8. .iso files Should be allowed when creating new VM

    In the "New virtual machine" pane, the "Operating system" section, check the "Install an operating system from an image file (.iso)" then enter a path to an ISO file.
    You get a red error message "(!) .ISO files are not allowed"
    This is, by all means, a bug.
    Please fix.

  9. [Files] Add ACL editor to WAC File Browser

    The "Properties" submenu of folders and files in the File Browser feature is painfully sparse compared to its oldschool counterparts in Explorer.

    Can we get a NT file permissions editor and ability to view effective access?

  11. Copy Folders & Drag and Drop

    It would be great if the file manager in windows admin center supported uploading folders and not simply files. Also it would be really nice if you could simply drag and drop files and folders from you pc into the file browser in Windows Admin Center to upload them.

  14. [Bug][Files]Quota management

    In this page:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/it-it/windows-server/manage/windows-admin-center/use/manage-servers#span-data-ttu-id08651-253filespanspan-classsxs-lookupspan-data-stu-id08651-253filesspanspan

    quota management is listed as a feature of the Files panel.
    However, at least in WAC version 1809.5, I'm not able to access the quota management feature from "Files".
    Where is it?

    Cheers

  16. HTTP Compression

    We noticed WAC is very quick over the LAN, but nearly unusable over VPN. Watching the size and amount of files being transferred, wouldnt some HTTP compression help this? Do not see a way to enable, but thinking this may help performance when this amount of large files are transferred (manifest.json, etc.)

  18. [Bug] [Virtual Machines] VHD files case sensitivity

    File extension validation is case sensitive. Install Hyper-V Management.

    Tools -> Virtual Machines -> Inventory -> New

    Set up new parameters

    Add Disk -> Use an existing virtual hard disk

    Give a virtual hard disk with a .VHDX extension, there is an error saying that .VHDX files are not allowed.

    Rename the VHD file from a .VHDX extension to a .vhdx extension. The file can now be used as an existing disk for the VM.

  19. [Deployment] Allow Windows Admin Center to be configured one time for all your admins

    Allow Windows Admin Center to be configured one time for all your admins. I find it hard to believe that every admin at a business will need to config this product separately. Why not have a admin group that can see all and have one person doing all the config work.....

    With support for shared connections and management of connections and Extensions with PowerShell, we are going to mark this as complete.

    If you have a more specific feature that would help you configure Windows Admin Center one time for all your admins, please create new suggestions.
