Cloud storage services have proliferated a lot in the recent period, and many Samsung device users have relied on Samsung Cloud service.

It is a cloud storage service available on most Samsung smartphones and tablets that automatically backs up, syncs, and restores photos, data and settings.

But thanks to Samsung’s cooperation with Microsoft, Samsung announced that it will cancel some of its cloud service features (Samsung Cloud) that we use most often, including: Drive Storage and Gallery Sync.

Therefore, as of April 1, you will not be able to synchronize your files and photos with the (Samsung Cloud) service in your phone, and any current files that you have stored will be deleted. Some features remain, such as: syncing notes, calendars, and contacts.

If you use Samsung Cloud to save a backup copy of your data, you will need to find an alternative as soon as possible, and of course you recommend using Microsoft’s OneDrive service.

Below we’ll show you how you can switch to OneDrive and what to do if you’re not ready to switch now:

First: When will these features stop being supported in Samsung Cloud service:

For users of the service in the United States, the United Kingdom, and some other European countries, support for storage and image syncing features in the Samsung Cloud service will stop working on April 1.

For users in the rest of the world, the deadline will be on the first of next June, and you can verify this via this link, where the company has placed the countries in two groups.

This means that if you are in the first group, the opportunity to transfer your data to OneDrive or any other cloud storage service is available until March 31

If you are in the second group and plan to download your data to store it on an external hard drive or move to another cloud storage service, you have more time as your files will not be deleted in the Samsung Cloud service until June 30th.

It is worth noting that it is important to know that whether you choose to download your data or move to another cloud storage service, in all cases your files will be deleted automatically in the service by the end of next June.

And if you are subscribed to a paid plan, your plan will automatically terminate and the company will provide an immediate refund for the remainder of the subscription value.
