Ok, I got my official notice the other day about Samsung cloud going away. Been hearing about it for a while. So I followed the directions and connected to my OneDrive Personal account. No problem doing that, other than I'm still waiting for a way to connect my Secure Folder to it. Or at least to allow me to back it up with Smart Switch to my PC. I've got the backup set to ONLY backup my Camera Album.

Anyway, on my phone, I have multiple albums. Screenshots, photos from this web site, from that one, Shots from my Drone, Birthday stuff... Most of it easily disposable.

Example of my problem. I go fly my drone and take some pictures. The pictures are saved on my SD card in my drone. A Low Res copy is saved on my phone. (Videos in one Album, Stills in another Album, Panoramic shots in another Album) Immediately after flying, my phone starts yelling, telling me that I have a new Album and do I want to save it to OneDrive. I tell it no, since these are only temp files. The next time I fly, it starts yelling again wanting me to add those albums to the backup. I say no. I take a screen shot. Immediately, it starts yelling that I have a Screenshot album, do I want to back it up??? I tell it no. I download a cartoon or a photo from a web site, and it creates another album and again, it starts yelling.

Is there any way that I can say Backup the ONE folder "Camera" and ignore everything else?? Everything else is only a temp file. I didn't have this problem with Samsung Cloud. I'd just as soon ignore OneDrive and just do a backup occasionally on my PC.

And does anyone know when Secure Folder will be added into either OneDrive backup or at least to Smart Switch backup to PC?

I run smart Switch on mine but Everytime it finishes it comes up with a warning that the secure folder has NOT been backed up and says to back out to with Samsung cloud. (go figure)

Transferring over to Onedrive works perfectly for me.

Mine doesn't give me the option to change to anything. From the secure folder, I click the three dots upper right, click Settings, Click Backup and Restore, Click Samsung account and I get nothing on changing from Samsung to anything else.

I run Smart Switch and run a total back up to my pc. Afterwards, I get a message as a reminder ONLY to back up my Secure Folder to my Samsung account.

From my phone, I click Settings, Accounts and Backups, Backup and restore, and THAT is synced to One Drive. But doesn't include my secure folder.

Remember here... I'm talking about backing up my Secure Folder and NOT the rest of my phone. That part is working fine. It's the secure folder that I'm concerned about here now.

What can I do about backing up my data? My one drive is full. I have one drive premium, 1Tb. I don't want to pay for more one drive storage as I already pay for google storage. There is an option to download my photos. However, that option states everything will be deleted immediately. My question I believe is where would I actually be downloading the data to?
Also, is there a way to do thus and keep all of the photo folders I have created?
