Hi

I have been having issues with gallery being unable to sync whatsapp images to onedrive

I have read previous threads & understand that samsung removed the facility for gallery to sync the whatsapp images.  I have followed the steps to remove the samsung account & can now see both the pictures I have taken, plus the whatsapp images other people have sent me uploaded to onedrive

However, if I delete an image from my gallery on my phone, then it is not deleted from onedrive

Is there anyway to allow this two way sync please?  

Otherwise the only solution I can see, is having to regularly go into onedrive to delete all the rubbish that you no longer want which is obv very clumsy & time consuming !

Unfortunately I don't think it's possible, OneDrive is able to support the backup and syncing however as far as I'm aware it's not able to delete selected images from within Gallery.

You'd have to manually go in to OneDrive and delete it from in there.

You would have to delete the photos from Onedrive separately as the gallery won't sync them anymore. What'sapp backs up your data and photos/video to Google Drive. I use Google photos which I find much better the the Samsung Gallery app.

Thank you.  That's a shame as I have brought more storage for onedrive, but have run out of the free google storage so am a bit reluctant to buy both.
