Things to know:
-The OneDrive software can be installed on both Windows computers and Mac computers via this link:
https://onedrive.live.com/about/en-us/download/ If you have Windows 8.1, OneDrive will already be installed on your system. To access the Camera backup option in Windows 8.1, go to Charms Bar > Settings > Change PC Settings > OneDrive > Camera roll.
-The OneDrive app for phones is available for iPhone, Android, and Windows phones. Visit your app store and look for OneDrive. After installing the app, you'll be prompted to turn on the camera backup feature.
-After the feature is activated, the uploading will begin. At this step, I looked at the OneDrive storage settings, and they had changed from 15GB to 30GB. I then switched off the wi-fi on my phone, went into the OneDrive settings on my phone app, and then disabled camera backup. This all occurred before a single photo got uploaded.
The deadline to act is September 30.
