I suggest you ...

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.

        Echoing the voices below, get rid of this feature (and all other "automatic" features which remove end user control.

        Yes! Remove this feature, or at the very least, give us control. Why in the world does this create un-movable folders? Delete feature completely, or give us control to move the album first and foremost, or designate a particular folder for these albums to be placed in. It works very well on Google photos. Copy them if you can't figure out a better way.

        I'm afraid this automatic allbum creator is a deal breaker for me. And since I can clearly see from this forum that Microsoft hasn't fixed in a year, I'm not holding by breath. See ya OneDrive. Time to migrate.

        Wake up Microsoftcock! This "feature" still hasn't been fixed. Just remove it you arrogant morons

        Thanks for the 4:30AM wake up notification that you created a new album for me that I'll have to delete. Why is this forced on me? 5 months ago you said you were working on a fix; come on, it doesn't take 5 months to either kill this feature or develop something to make it optional. Oh, and fire the guy that okayed spending money to develop this "feature" in the first place.

        Microsoft, since when have been holding the right to put unwanted folders in people's personal folders. You are annoying way too many people. If yoy think this is good business method. Good luck. You ll need it terribly.

        Please work on it faster... I like using one-drive but this automatic photo album is really annoying.. :(

        If you use OneDrive on Android, in settings menu (3 horizontal bars), Click on Personal (or the little circled i) and then disable OneDrive create photo album.

        I will cancel out my 50GB paid account and shift to an 'automatic album creation' free alternative. Bye bye OneDrive!

        Please give us the option to stop the album creation by onedrive, it takes too much space and I do not need ANY of those photos. Cannot even delete them. Terribly frustrating. All the convenience of using onedrive is not worth the albums created. Hate this feature. And why is it taking you guys so long to just give us the 'STOP' feature.
