Hi, can anyone tell me how to sync my above devices?  I want all pictures, music etc, to be available on both devices. When I first got my S8 Ultra, I used Smart Switch to transfer everything from my Galaxy Z Fold 3 mobile. For instance, pictures in Gallery on my mobile don't appear automatically in Gallery on the tablet. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

Gallery can only be synced between devices using onedrive, unless you use an app like Google photos rather than the stock gallery app.Screenshot_20220607-182832_Gallery.jpg

I use a Fold3 and S8 Ultra as long as both are on the same Samsung and OneDrive account, important linked, they stay updated, even my iPad mini One Drive stays synced

Goto galley setting One Drive

Thanks. I know my Fold 3 is connected to One Drive, not too sure about the S8 Ultra.

Just setup up both devices the same on Samsung Gallery, One Drive or even pad OS, mine all sync to One Drive, sometimes with pad OS needs a manual push to sync.Screenshot_20220608-071911_Samsung Cloud_14870_1654669151.jpg

I appreciate your help. One other thing, both devices have my emails on Outlook; if I delete or read emails on my Fold 3, I would have thought that that would be reflected on the S8 Ultra. I have to read and delete the emails manually. Both devices are logged into my Samsung account and logged into One Drive; it seems weird.

Hi RobSverige, it should as long as they are all setup to sync. I use my O365 email, OneDrive across all devices including iOS, i even use my work email across my fold3 and s8 ultra with a work profile, works perfect, yes now an again if you have not used the app in a while on a device, give it a moment to sync first.

Beauty of Samsung work profile is one icon switches it all OFF or ON, unlike the ***** iPad.

Hi Obsydian, thank you for your message. As far as I know everything is synced with One Drive. Both devices are signed in to my Samsung account. I'll have to check all the settings. Which icon is it that switches it all ON or OFF?
