To connect your Samsung Gallery to OneDrive

  1. Open the Gallery app settings.

  2. Tap Sync to OneDrive and follow the prompts to sync your Samsung Cloud Gallery to Microsoft OneDrive.


  • Samsung Gallery connection to OneDrive is available for certain carriers, models and markets only.

  • Your Samsung Gallery can only be connected to OneDrive personal accounts (i.e. not OneDrive for work or school users).

  • Switching to Samsung Gallery will again upload all your photos that were already uploaded to OneDrive by Camera Upload. Similarly, if you switch from Samsung Gallery to OneDrive Camera Upload, then all your permissible photos will get uploaded on the device. 

If Samsung Gallery upload to OneDrive isn’t working

  1. If you connected your Samsung Gallery app to OneDrive, and see the error message "Something went wrong", close the app, start the connection again ensuring that all permissions are granted.


    • Your Samsung Gallery can only be connected to OneDrive personal accounts (i.e. not OneDrive for work or school users).

    • If the Samsung Gallery still doesn't sync to your OneDrive, please contact Samsung Customer Support via your device. Go to Settings > Accounts and backup > Samsung Cloud > More options > Settings Contact us > Error reports ensuring that Send system log data is enabled.

    • Any files larger than 4 GB cannot be uploaded automatically, but you can upload them manually

  2. If you connected your Samsung Gallery app to OneDrive, but images from other folders (e.g. Screenshots, social media folders) are not showing in your OneDrive camera roll, this is because the Samsung Gallery app doesn't support photos from additional folders. To resolve this:

    1. Disconnect your Samsung Gallery from OneDrive - see below.

    2. Ensure that OneDrive camera roll is enabled. Learn how to Automatically save photos and videos with OneDrive for Android.

If pictures are not showing in your Samsung Gallery or OneDrive camera roll

If you delete files from the Samsung Gallery folder in your OneDrive app, or from within the Samsung Gallery app, they will be deleted from the other app too.


  • If you delete any files that sync to the Samsung Gallery, they will be moved to the Recycle Bin and deleted from all your synced devices.

  • Samsung Gallery is a bi-directional synch, files modified or deleted from the Samsung Gallery will be reflected on the cloud. Any modifications or deletions done on the web or from other OneDrive endpoints will delete your data on the device.
