    Is this the same issue as the IOS OneDrive app changing where it syncs photos? Is there anyway to choose which folder the OneDrive IOS app syncs photos too?

    It seems that the app recently started syncing to a folder titled /camera roll/year/month when it used to upload to /camera roll/. This would be OK if I didn't already had an organization structure within camera roll that was working for me and my other devices that sync with that folder. Being able to choose upload path would be best!

    The issue is (insider info) that the mobile team, the office team, and the onedrive team cannot for the life of them communicate, and work in silos that just fight between level 70's. Satya will have to get involved to fix this one...

    This is still ongoing, the issue persists. If you delete the folder it creates one in its place a few minutes later, this ought to be fixed. It's a shame one of the best cloud providers doesn't provide autonomy for it's users to aptly use its services.

    Maybe worst of it: there is not a single status comment from the MS team on this "hot" issue for more than a year. That's just poor customer support!
    Wonder why my company has chosen to use MS to supply a cloud solution...?!?

    Wow, this is just entering the realm of ridiculous at this point. How incompetent does a team have to be to let this bug persist for so long?!

    Why is this folder appearing in my onedrive? I delete it, it comes back. I delete it, it comes back. I am at war with this folder.
