    OneDrive Lost Photos Stored in Subfolders


    We recently upgraded the OS of our old Win7 desktop to Windows 10. This came with OneDrive, and we decided to put all our photos on OneDrive, to save space (which I since discovered it doesn't do). So we transferred all our photos, saved in several folders and subfolders. We then got a new computer, so we synced the new one to OneDrive, and all the files (or so we thought) automatically downloaded to it.
    Today I discovered to my horror that even though all the folders are there, and the photos saved in primary folders are there, most of the subfolders are empty! How come - why didn't the files in those subfolders transfer when the folder itself was transferred? Most of the folders were fortunately backed up on USB sticks, but not all of the children's photo folders - including my daughter's photos of last year's school trip to Iceland.

    Has anybody else experienced this? Are Windows aware of this problem? Is there any chance they could still be hanging around somewhere? (And yes, I've checked the Recycle basket.)

    Yes OneDrive lost some of my photos but I had them backed up so it was no big deal, very strange, not sure where they went ...
