    I hate it that my phone photos are two levels deep. one level for the year (good), but the second level by month is super painful when trying to navigate to the picture. please allow me to customize this setting to only divide the pictures by year only and NOT year and month.

    Agree! This change of functionality has introduced an inconsistency in the way my photos are being organised which I don't want to have to solve. My personal preference is I'd rather view all the images together. I also think the date-time provided by the file system is sufficient. But I can understand the desire for the feature so my preference is for a feature toggle to allow people to choose for themselves. Forcing the choice, forces us to live with the inconsistency.

    Agreed. Much prefer to see the camera roll as a complete set of photographs, and not buried away in folders for each month which is highly frustrating!

    Give us the option to create folders IF we wish, but please don’t force folders within the camera roll upon us.

    Agreed! I couldn't find my pics because they were buried in folders I didn't create! Very disheartening

    文件名已经可以很好的区分时间了, 我比较喜欢将时间作为文件名这个功能

    Agreed. It’s a roll not a forced folder set.
    Option to disable required.

    Agree completely! Most of us a fully capable of creating our own folders IF we want them. Don't force your idea of how we choose to organize pictures on us. Make it an option or eliminate it completely. This is not a feature it is a bug and a pain!!

    Agree, apparently this is a feature. I call it a bug and have disabled camera upload in my iOS OneDrive app until they fix it. I do hate it when they impose these things on us.
