  1. Photos from my iPhone camera roll automatically sync to my laptop


    Hello

    I'm really battling to figure out how to stop the photos from my iPhone camera roll automatically syncing to my laptop photos app. I don't want the photos to automatically appear on my laptop.

    Version number: Version 1903 (OS Build 18362.720)

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    :)

  2. Sync camera roll

    The solution didn't help. I have Files On-Demand turned on and doing the above steps on makes it possible to access my camera roll folder in OneDrive through file explorer.

    I want to back up photos/videos taken on my laptop webcam and screenshots to OneDrive.

    I guess I should have said how can I enable syncing of the camera roll to OneDrive.

    I hope this makes sense.

  3. When I take a photo of myself with my laptop camera, what directory is it placed in?

    By default, your pictures should appear in your Pictures\Camera Roll folder. If they aren't there, follow these steps to figure out where they are being saved:

    1. Take a picture with the camera app.
    2. Click the thumbnail of the picture you just took at the bottom right of the app.
    3. When the photo viewer opens, click the three dots (...) at the top right and select "File Info".

    A panel will then appear and it will tell you the directory where your picture is located.

    If you created your account picture by going to your account settings and then selecting "create your picture -> camera", then the picture will not have been stored in your camera roll. It will be located in %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\AccountPictures as mentioned by @kicken.

    Photos from my iPhone camera roll automatically sync to my laptop

    Some of my photos are not synced to camera roll. How to force them to sync??

    I just realized that some of my photos in my phone are not on my Skydrive camera roll folders..

    I just assume that they are all safely synced to my Camera Roll folder since I have the settings on automatically upload to skydrive.

    Is there anyway to force a re-sync of all my photos to be uploaded to skydrive Camera Roll..

    I think this is very dangerous, because all this time I was thinking that all my photos are safe and sound in my skydrive Camera Roll folder.

    I assume windows Phone and skydrive have this taken care of since I always have the settings to automatically upload.

    Thank you,
