My free 50Gb Dropbox offer expired so I'm now using OneDrive amongst others.
When I used Dropbox the syncing created a mirror image of what i had on my PC and updated as necessary.
With OneDrive you can do the same more or less, but the AllPhotos (sometimes referred to as camera roll) IE the pictures I've snapped with the phone, appear on my online OneDrive page but doesn't create a folder locally, which isn't helpful.
I read somewhere that deleting the OneDrive folder on the PC and starting OneDrive again would fix this.
I'll try that, meanwhile any suggestions or is my phone considered to be the syncing device.

Did you have any luck with that, Mark?

I'm not a OneDrive user myself, though I do have 1 or 2 files stored there, but the Camera Roll appears locally on my computer when I visit the OneDrive folder through explorer - even though I don't have any images uploaded.
