I am running build 10549 and have made an album in the photo app. It says that the album is only local. How can I get it to sync to onedrive? Photo backup/upload is on and working.


It is currently not possible to sync albums across devices. There are quite a few entries for this in the Windows Feedback app that you can vote on.

A workaround would be to actually create the album on OneDrive rather than on the device (via the OneDrive app or a browser). This still wouldn't be a complete solution, but should be closer to what you want.

  • I have not found this in the feedback app. Will try again. Thanks! Oct 21 '15 at 14:34
  • Filter by Apps and Games > Photos > Search for "Album sync."

  • I also filtered by my build and suggestion (instead of problem) and got no results. also with my build and problem there is no issue with album keyword. app -> photo -> trending. Perhaps because I am dutch. Oct 22 '15 at 9:58
