As stated in my earlier articles, I have chosen OneDrive as my preferred online cloud storage option and have started to backup all my important files to OneDrive including my large photo library. I have been using Google Photos as my preferred option for Photo’s backup and have migrated to OneDrive shortly. However, based on usage of both leading cloud storage service providers, I have following constraints while using photos backup in OneDrive over Google Photos.
- Year-wise sorting of photos from backup files: I have uploaded photos from my iPhone and copy pasted the old photo library from my MacBook to OneDrive. However, OneDrive organizes the photos based on the uploaded date, rather than organizing the photos based on actual month and year.
- Option to exclude photos organizing into Photo library: OneDrive automatically imports all photos into the photo library; however, I am also using OneDrive to back-up my old system files and work files. In this scenario, sometimes there are few system images or pictures from the work files and OneDrive does not provide option to exclude those pictures or images from being imported into personal photo library.
Hope, Microsoft addresses the above concerns at the earliest and enables users to have seamless experience in OneDrive over Google Photo. "G R Team Sites" have more such articles.
