Samsung has announced that its cloud service will no longer support Gallery Sync and Drive storage for My Files. This will come into effect at the end of next month and all data stored in the Samsung Cloud will then be deleted. On top of that, Samsung also mentioned that the premium storage subscription will also be automatically canceled, with the option of the subscription amount being refunded. The functions of Samsung Cloud are now supported by Microsoft OneDrive – with the exception of certain countries and devices.
According to a announcement shared by Samsung, Samsung Cloud will end support for Gallery Sync and Drive storage for My Files on November 30th. All data stored in the Samsung cloud will also be deleted at the end of next month. As mentioned earlier, Samsung Cloud canceled its premium storage plan subscription on October 1st and subscribers may receive a refund. It is recommended that Samsung Cloud users either integrate their data into Microsoft OneDrive or download the data to their personal storage.
The capabilities of Samsung Cloud are now supported by Microsoft OneDrive and Samsung has provided methods and a window to integrate data from its cloud into Microsoft by November 30th. However, support for the automatic transfer of data was only supported until September 30th. Alternatively, users can download all of their data from Samsung Cloud to their personal storage but lose the ability to integrate with OneDrive. Samsung has detailed the steps to integrate data into OneDrive and download it to personal storage.
It should be noted that the data stored in the Samsung Cloud will be automatically deleted after the transfer is complete if users select the OneDrive integration. When users select the option to download the data, all data will be erased from the Samsung Cloud either 60 days after the data was downloaded or on November 30th, whichever comes first.
