    ...but I already have the free 5GB for One drive. Samsung Cloud is currently 15 GB free. They will have to come better than that.

    Leave the those things to Microsoft/Google who are way better at it. Yeah I know unpopular opinion here in the Samsung forum but nevertheless my opinion.

    But even though personally wouldn't use Samsung cloud doesn't hurt people having choices. Probably financially makes sense for Samsung not to concentrate/invest in this area and instead partner with Microsoft.

    There was a problem though with syncing for me using this new feature. I went ahead and agreed to using the OneDrive feature and set everything up. I figured all would be good. I then set up my camera to put my pictures on my SD card automatically. I usually do this. I could probably take my SD card out now and maybe will since my phone is 512GB, but anyways...

    So, once you set you Samsung account to back up to your OneDrive, you are not allowed to back up your SD card data to the account. Since my camera automatically saves pics to the SD card... you can where this is going. It broke. I was no longer automatically backing up the pictures I was taking. I did some forum searched and saw that this was what was causing the problem.

    I went ahead and removed my Samsung account from OneDrive and once again was able to have my pictures back up as soon as I took them. I imagine this is going to be an issue for more than just me.

    I forget what I was doing, but the note 20 promoted me to merge the two or something like that a few days ago. I did and it's all on one drive now. Though, I turned off photo backups as I already back them up on Google photos. Mine shows 15 GB, but I don't know if there is any particular reason for that.

    but that 1 tb is only free for a month after that you have to pay 6.99 a month or you will go back to basic 5gb is my understanding.

    It’s part of Microsoft/office 365 subscription which i have been using for years now and OneDrive space is part of it. Nothing to do with Samsung or Note, just like how you pay for Google one for google services, office 365 is for Microsoft services. That’s why i like Microsoft and Google offering compared to anything Samsung which isn’t even cross platform to begin with.

    Microsoft/Office 365 isn’t free it’s a paid service just like Google one. Both are awesome value anyway for peanuts per month.

    So which Plan you Using the 6.99 a month and if so do you consider it the best plan ?

    I use the Microsoft 365 Family which is $99 or $9.99 per month for general consumer I think but being in Seattle area I get special pricing since I know many Microsoft folks
    For family plan you can share up to 6 people and each one of them gets 1 TB of storage.

    If there is a $6.99 per month plan that’s probably individual plan, I use the family plan.

    I think family plan is the best value since I share it with my wife and you can share with other family members if you want. It’s only little more than individual plan.

    Yes I agree, and you also get the full office suite of apps along with 1 TB storage. Definitely a good deal.

    I also have the Google One 200 GB subscription for $3 per month which I also share with family. Eventually once I cross 200 GB I’ll upgrade to 2TB storage for $9.99 per month.

    Google One is still my main storage and Microsoft OneDrive is my backup.

    You have options, personally I think Google, Microsoft or even Dropbox is a good option since it works on any device irrespective of OS who makes the device etc. That’s very important for me to even consider a service, free or paid.

    What about Notes? Will we be forced to use OneNote? This is my 1st Note device & I'm liking the Spen integration. I know syncing Notes to OneNote is coming later this year for PC use, but what about mobile use long term?
