Having issues with your OneDrive app on your mobile device? Try the following:

  • If automatic camera upload isn't working, or only some pictures are uploaded, follow these steps:

    • Keep the OneDrive app open for the camera roll to update.

    • If you're not connected to Wi-Fi, check your mobile OneDrive settings for camera upload on metered connections are not switched off.

    • Enable your device's Location Services. Changes in location are used to trigger background activity.
