Why doesn't Microsoft's OneDrive and Microsoft itself work with law enforcement?

As in using specialized software that breaks down images and restructures them to filter out any illegal material like child pornography, I think it's a great idea that Microsoft should implement this technology now that more and more users are using it to store personal files.

    onedrive is an online storage system.

    The only time I imagine they would do this would be if you were sharing this content with others publicly.

    It's a question of privacy. It's just that simple.

    People have become more aware of privacy when it comes to technology and how services handle our data.

    Microsoft peaking at your files to see if there’s anything that shouldn’t be there would cause an uproar and a quick way of Microsoft ruining their reputation.

    First off most one drive files are private, most people do not want law enforcement analyzing their personal files (without a warrant) no matter the reason they are doing it. Lets say the FBI is looking for something horrid like child porn, but what stops them from looking at anything else? Can you imagine the uproar people would have if they knew the government essentially had access to their personal files without any court order? Microsoft has to draw the line somewhere in the balance to maintain people's privacy. Even law enforcement would face a huge problem in the courts if they tried to use evidence gained without a warrant against someone.
