Offer "Save to OneDrive" when Exporting Content Search PST
When you finish a Content Search across mailboxes in your tenant, and click "Download results", this by default saves the PST to a local file on your PC where the export is running. It would be very beneficial is there was an option to "save results to onedrive" and let administrators choose a location on OneDrive to save the PST file to.
My process currently is the following (and we are an online only tenant):
1. Run content search for a variety or reasons across all mailboxes (5000+)
2. Search finishes, and click "download results"
3. Enter the key and choose a local destination on my PC to save the PST file to.
4. Once content is downloaded, then I take that same PST file and upload it to a private OneDrive folder shared with the requesting party
A direct "download to onedrive" option would save a lot of time for me personally, as im sure many others.

It would make the discovery process so incredibly quicker if I didn't have to export the pst (which is stored in Azure) then download it to my computer, then upload it to OneDrive (which is stored in Azure) to share with lawyers.
Finally after much googling found I had to amend registry keys in .NET Framework options to get the downloader to work. Another hour of my life wasted..
Voted for this one. The current download mechanism is just broken. It refuses to run on Edge, IE, Edge-dev, Chrome. It says security restrictions prevent but I'm admin on everything and I've no idea how to make it work.
We have no need to download via browsers in 2019, THAT'S WHAT OneDrive and SHAREPOINT ARE FOR, SURELY??
Come on Microsoft, this cannot be that hard.
