You want to prevent your pictures from being auto-uploaded to Microsoft OneDrive. However, you find no Group Policy setting to disable the Camera roll upload photos and videos option for OneDrive. Additionally, when you try to disable OneDrive synchronization for Windows 8.1, the Do not sync Group Policy setting is used.
After this Group Policy setting is applied, and then you try to connect to a Microsoft account, you discover that all settings are blocked and disabled.
All the Sync settings are turned off, as expected, without Camera roll upload photos and videos.
This behavior occurs because there is no Group Policy setting to disable the Camera roll upload photos and videos option.
To disable the Camera roll upload photos and videos option, set the following registry key on the client computer.
Note This can also be done by using Group Policy Preferences.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SkyDrive\CameraRollValue name: Photos
Value type: REG_DWORD
Value data: 00000000
After this setting is applied, the synchronization of the Camera roll option to OneDrive is disabled.
