Automatically creating an album
Allow us to disable OneDrive automatically creating an album please. This annoys a lot of people, including me, and should be optional.
Thanks again for the suggestion. We added a setting for this – click the cog in the upper right corner of the website. Select Options and then Photos. You can now turn off automatic album creation.
These albums are stupid, I have one for every day of the year, opening them could use up an hour of data time. What a lousy punishment for buying one drive. BAH!
just want to add to the list of people that find this to be an annoying pain **********.
Does deleting these albums delete the photos?
You guys are doing this so it can take up more space. And so we can buy more space.
I guess you will keep "working on it".
We've walked on the moon. We can't turn off a feature on one drive.?
Please make correcting this problem a priority. Soooooo annoying!
I'm another one it annoys.
Agree with all, please disable this useless and annoying "feature"
Until when will you work on this? You posted this on NOV16, but this is Feb17 now and Onedrive still creats these annoying albums.
Still, I would very much like this feature!!!
Any progress? It's one of the most annoying and unnecessary "features"
are you serious about not having an option for disabling it ? YOu are working on it ? wtf, i'll chancel my sub an delete everything. going to google, bye
Yes please. This feature is stupid & annoying.
I agree I want to turn it off. people don't like it please remove the function or simply add turn off option.
O hate this funciona about create álbuns
Is there an update on this? I just searched for how to turn off this feature and couldn't believe that you can't. In addition, I am currently backing up a lot of old photos to OneDrive and it can't seem to tell when I took them as it makes a new album for me for today with all these old pictures in it.
I just can't understand how Microsoft works... Who could have the idea of making a feature like this? It just doesn't make sense, like lots of other things that MS does with it's products.
I mean, this "automatic album" feature, could make one album per day, week or whatever. Instead, you just don't know when it will do it. What kind of "feature" is this???
I could even write a book with things like this that Microsoft does to it's products...

Hi Dougles, now you can manage and delete automatically created albums, at least over the web browser. However I still cannot see the option to completely deactivate this function. When do you plan to release it? Let us be honest, it's annoying for almost everyone using one drive.
How long it will take? You're working on it since Nov 2016
I don't want the idea of creating an album for me to recap. Does it even violate the privacy for using my photos ?
