I use OneDrive for moving photos from my Samsung S21 Ultra Android phone to my desktop. I created a new folder called Photos and move the photos I want to keep to that folder, open the folder on the desktop, move the photos to a local intake folder and erase it from OneDrive and then erase it from the phone.
Today, I discovered that the standard Pictures directory in OneDrive has 18 copies of TranscodedWallpaper[n], one per week starting in August. I only discovered this because there was a notice on the phone of the transfer … which I have not seen before. What is this and can I get rid of it?
There is also a desktop.ini in that folder as well as subfolders ScreenShots, Saved Pictures, and Camera Roll. Each has a desktop.ini and the latter seems to have the images I have not erased from the phone.
I did Google TranscodedWallpaper and it appears to relate to the image of the desktop backdrop, but my backdrop is a slide show pointing at a local folder and has been for years and years, so I don’t why it should suddenly show up in August and why it should be highly variable in size since mostly the contents of that folder don’t change.
Bonus Question: When I go to move the photo from the phone to OneDrive, mostly OneDrive is at the beginning of the list of possible destinations, but occasionally I have to scroll off the edge of the screen looking for it. Why doesn’t remain at the beginning since it is the last place I moved something.
