    What we want to do is we want to store our data online, so if something happens to it, and something happens to our phone, we can still retrieve our pictures and still have our pictures, and they'll be protected online
    .
    So what we want to do is press the Pictures folder, which should be a blue square underneath files.

    Choose a picture and tap on it
    .
    The file will begin to upload. You might see a message that reads, "The folder can't be displayed. Make sure you're connected to a WiFi or cellular network and try again." You can see that the file is uploading at the top of your screen. When it is finished, it will say 1 file has been added at the top. So it may be taking some time to load. This is probably because of a very suspect internet connection.

How to sign out the account in OneDrive?

I have changed my Microsoft account. But how can I remove my old account from one drive app in the Lumia 535?. I have tried: I have checked all the things, but got nothing.

Your active Microsoft account is tied to OneDrive, which means that you will need to use another Microsoft account.

  • If you want to close the OneDrive account completely, then open a browser and go to https://www.overdrive.com/account/close-account to start the process of closing your OneDrive account. Warning: this is irreversible, and you will not be able to use this account anymore.
  • You can also close your old Microsoft account by going to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=523898. Warning: this is irreversible, and you will not be able to use this account anymore.
  • To switch to your new Microsoft account: Hard-reset the Lumia 535 phone and set up your new Microsoft account. Warning: all of the data will be erased from the phone. The SD card will be left intact.
