Samsung will delete your photos on Samsung Cloud next month, back them up quickly!
Samsung Cloud will soon delete your photos and videos. The tech giant has already announced that it will shut down its popular cloud service entirely as it migrates to Microsoft OneDrive soon.
Samsung Cloud users are encouraged to upload their photos if they don’t want to lose them by next month. Indeed, Samsung will soon remove the possibility of saving your photos on its Samsung Cloud service. Samsung Cloud will always back up your contacts, calendar entries and notes, but images and video content will no longer be part of Samsung’s offering. Samsung has therefore created a tool to transfer your data to Microsoft’s OneDrive, but it is also possible to manually upload all your photos and save them elsewhere.
Samsung has divided its customers into two groups, each with different deadlines. As it is not possible to know which group you are in, it is better to save your photos and videos before September 30, date on which Group 1 will have their photos deleted from Samsung Cloud.

How to save your photos?
If you have enough space on your smartphone, you can choose to save your photos and videos locally on your device. In this case, you will have to go to the settings, then to “accounts and backup”. At the bottom you should find a “Looking for something else?” Menu. Which will allow you to access Samsung Cloud. At last, all you have to do is press “Download my data”.
If your smartphone does not have enough storage, it is possible to transfer directly to OneDrive. As a reminder, 5 GB of storage is offered on Microsoft’s service. However, if your Samsung Cloud storage limit is over 5 GB, you will automatically get the same storage on OneDrive for one year.
Finally, if you prefer save your images to a computer, you can do it in a few clicks. Just go to the Samsung Cloud website and sign in. Then click on Gallery to have the possibility to download all the images. You cannot preview them before downloading them, and if you have a lot of images stored, Samsung will split them into multiple ZIP files.
