Separate folders when automatically uploading from multiple sources on mobile
Within the Android app, OneDrive suggests you backup photos from multiple apps/folders/sources on your phone. This is a good feature to keep everything synced with the cloud, however it is very disorganized to throw all of these files in the base Camera Roll folder. Each source (every app/folder) should have it's own folder within Camera Roll. They all have different naming conventions, so it's difficult to dissect which photo came from which app.
This is absolutely needed! Just as many others I'd like to backup not only my own pictures. I have many other folders to sync. e.g. pictures taken with WhatsApp, twitter or other sources, and I don't want them to mix up with my own pictures. I have about 1.400 own pictures, now mixed up with all possible files (not only pictures) in one large folder with all together more than 6.900 files inside. Please...(!!!) without using the source folders to separate and store the synchronized files inside, it's a **** of a mess and pretty difficult to find a special file!

Please sort out being able to back up gallery photos into their original files and NOT in one large file

need this to keep organized! so much trouble trying to find that one photo you backed up in OneDrive when you can clearly see where it is on your phone just because they are mixed up all together in the cloud...
I uploaded my photos to onedrive, now they are ALL mixed up and no rhyme or reason as to where they are placed. This is SO annoying. Will likely use a different cloud syncing app for photos if this persists.
it is insane that such a BASIC feature is still not a thing!
this has been requested a million times over the last 5 YEARS!
So still all my photo's of whatsapp, 9gag, signal, etc do all end up in the same folder. This is really annoying. Please implement this. What is the expected ETA Microsoft?
We needed this years and years ago. Hurry up already!!!
Yes please!!! I currently have 10 thousand images in my camera roll because, without thinking, I also enabled backup of image folders for messenger and such. Sigh.
We need this. Onedrive is not a viable backup otherwise.
Trochę nie rozumiem jak to ma działać i dlatego też nie jest to dla mnie i nie zgadzam się z tym

Oh yes!!! This will make the app and synchronized folders so much more organized automatically!!!
Any progress update please?

I would love to be able to "name" root folder differently for each device.
Examples: "Phone Camera Roll" and "Tablet Camera Roll" instead of all photos from all devices getting dumped into one "Camera Roll" folder in OneDrive.

Following up, as this update would be very important
Can we get a status update please?
Just a suggestion. We should have an option to decide what we want to upload into the one drive.
I am now deciding between Google Drive and OneDrive and this is really a very deciding compulsory factor to which I should go out for.
If this isn't rolled out soon. I am canceling my membership before the test phase ends, unfortunately! :/
I have an 83Gb camera roll with 40k photos in it that pretty much no application I have found can handle.
Please fix this. Not only should you fix this but you should retroactively fix it so that you move the pics into folders as they are on your phone.
This is so infuriating.
