Where to start? Say I take a picture with my Galaxy S8+. That picture is saved to my Gallery and it automatically syncs with OneDrive. Great! Eventually my phone gets full and I want to delete the photo from my internal storage, but not from OneDrive.
This leads to Problem #1 - when I delete a photo from my Gallery it also deletes from OneDrive. How can I delete a picture or video from my Gallery without having it also delete from OneDrive?
Problem #2 - Under the "My Files" app I have a few dozen movies. These movies do not appear in OneDrive. Again, I want to free up space on my phone, but I can't delete these movies because they are not backed up on OneDrive, and I can't figure out how to move them over.
Problem #3 - I can't figure out how to set up my phone so pictures are ONLY stored to OneDrive, not my internal storage.
Problem #4 - I can't figure out how to move files into OneDrive. The only method that works is to take a photo and have it automatically sync. How can I move other files to OneDrive?
I must be getting old because this user interface is frustating and counter-intuitive. Any help would be appreciated.
Wow, I would say that Problem #1 is definitely an issue. I definitely thought that once they were on OneDrive they wouldn't leave until you deleted them directly from OneDrive.
