Somehow, I have folders with photos on my PC, which have synced to Skydrive photos, which are now synced to my WP7 (Focus). I wish to discontinue this. How do I remove synced photo folders from Skydrive?

Also, when I open “Pictures” on my WP7, the device seems to randomly pick photos to display as wallpaper. I don’t want this to happen with certain folders. Is there a way to exclude specific photo folders on my device to be used as wallpaper in “Pictures”?

Thanks,
Dave

To remove the skydrive pictures, you need to login to your live account (live.com).
for the second query, go to the pictures hub and long tap on the top left where it says pictures. you will get 2 options, change background and change it for me. choose the picture you like in change background

Awesome! This will flat-out work to stop the “Pictures” app from using photos not of my choosing as wallpaper. The pictures in question however are not Skydrive photos, but reside in folders I have synced via Zune. I would like to be able to select specific folders from which wallpaper could not be selected, but this is certainly a solution to my dilemma.

I actually desire to remove all Skydrive photo folders from Skydrive and thus, my WP7, but I can’t figure out how to do this.

Thank you for your help,
Dave

I'm guessing that you want to remove the pictures that you synced to skydrive using your phone:? If so, you can logon to skydrive.live.com and remove them

No Sir, not so much. I want to remove all of my photo folders from Skydrive. I don’t want the folders to show-up in my Skydrive. More importantly, I don’t want any folders entitled “from windows live” to show-up when I go to “Pictures” on my WP7. It makes absolutely no difference to me if I achieve this using my lap-top or my WP7. I wish to use only Zune to sync photos to my WP7.

Thanks,
Dave

I think Camera roll is a default. I want to remove the photo folders I have added to Skydrive.

Thanks
