Hi Jan - Unfortunately, no. My best suggestion is to copy your OneDrive library onto an external drive and then add your media to Mylio Photos from the external drive.

Mylio Photos does not support Linked Folders on cloud drives (e.g., Dropbox, iCloud Drive, Google Drive, OneDrive, etc.). Linking a folder from a cloud drive may result in data loss and catalog corruption.

Hi there,

Can I use this function to import photo's and video's from Onedrive into mylio without a full download of my Onedrive photo library ( +400 Gb; 50k media files)

The harddrive of my Mac is just not big enough to store the full library.

kund regards, Jan
