  1. What is the best way to move all of my Google Photos over to OneDrive?


    I recently got Office 365 and I want to use the cloud storage. So ive been trying to transfer with the Manage Archives part of Google Drive but it keeps giving me an error when I select it to go right to OneDrive.

    So I tried downloading all the photos and then uploading but its about 200gb of photos and its way too much to upload quickly.

    Is there a third-party application or website I could be using to do this better?

    :)

  3. Windows 10 - OneDrive

    Right click on the app and one of the properties has an option to not automatically start it. Uncheck, restart the computer, and it should stop. If you want to go another step further, find the OneDrive app in the start menu, right click on it and uninstall.

    If that is still insufficient, there is a batch uninstaller for OneDrive available online. I can copy the code here if you need it.

    Google Photos not visible in Pictures library

    Hi Jdmuratore,

    Thank you for posting your question in the Microsoft Community Forums.

    Please answer these questions to get clarity on this issue:

    1. Were you able to see the Google photos folder in the File Explorer Pictures Library previously?
    2. Have you enabled the Sync feature in the Google Drive app?
    3. Are you able see the photos in the path under "C:\Users\,username>\Google Drive\Google Photos?

    However, let us follow these methods to check if that works.

    Method 1: Suggest you to Index the Google Drive folder and check if that helps. Refer to the suggestion provided by ‘Marc Cai’ from this thread:

    Method 2: Suggest you to refer to the steps from this Google article to see if that helps.
    See photos & videos with Google Photos & Google Drive:
