Check if you have stuff in Samsung Cloud soon, because you're going to lose it
- Samsung just extended the deadline for when the Samsung Cloud service will end.
- You have until November 30, 2021, to save your files, but you only have until October to migrate them easily to OneDrive.
- After November 30, Samsung will delete all your saved data.
Back when seemingly every company was making a cloud storage service, Samsung came out with its own. The service would back up your phone files automatically, allowing you to safely delete data from your onboard storage.
However, only a select few cloud services survived the oversaturated market. Now, there is an end-of-life date for Samsung Cloud and the company will eventually delete all files backed up there.
Originally, Samsung set an August 31 termination date for the service. However, it just extended that deadline to November 30, 2021 (via Android Central). However, there is a soft deadline for easy migration of your data.
From now until October 1, 2021, you can easily migrate any Samsung Cloud data you might have to Microsoft’s OneDrive. The process is very simple and just pushes all your data from one dying service to one that isn’t going away anytime soon. If you don’t do this before October 1, though, you will need to manually migrate to the service of your choice before November 30. After that date, any data you have will disappear.
You might not think you have any data in Samsung Cloud, but it’s worth a check. If you’ve ever owned a Samsung device, it’s very likely that some data auto-saved to the service. It’s definitely worth a look just to be safe.
