Save/upload photos and files

Backup photos automatically

Activate the “Automatic Backup” function so that new photos and videos on your phone are continuously backed up to your Cloud storage. You choose if you want to sync photos and/or videos and other albums on your mobile phone.

Please note that your data is only continuously backed up if your mobile device is connected to the Internet.

Upload photos manually

To check which photos and videos on your mobile phone are already in your myCloud and which are missing, proceed as follows:

  1. In your myCloud, tap the “+” symbol in the top right-hand corner of the “Photos” section to upload new photos and videos.
  2. On an Apple device, you will see the content that is not yet in your myCloud.
  3. On an Android device, first select the “Upload from device” option to see the content that has not been synchronised. The images that are not backed up to myCloud are also marked with a crossed-out cloud icon.

Edit files on your computer

The myCloud Desktop App connects your computer directly to your online storage. Everything you place in the new folder is stored locally on your device.

Save storage space with WebDav

With WebDav, you access your data online. The files are automatically saved on the mycloud.ch servers and don't take up any of your computer’s memory. You can see your myCloud files directly in File Explorer (Windows) or Finder (macOS) and edit them there, so you can access the latest version of your data from anywhere.

Activate WebDav

Synchronise folders selectively

Selective synchronisation of the myCloud Desktop App lets you choose the folders you want to sync with your computer separately on each device. How it works:

  1. Click on the myCloud symbol in the taskbar.
  2. Click on the three lines top right to get to the settings and select the “Settings” tab.
  3. You will see the mycloud.ch folder structure under the “myCloud Folders”.
  4. Folders that you deselect will be deleted from your computer. They are no longer synchronised but remain on mycloud.ch.
  5. Click the “Apply” button to apply your settings.

Share myCloud files

You can send photos, videos and files that you have uploaded to your myCloud quickly and easily to someone else.

  1. Go to your myCloud account and select the content you want to share.
  2. Click on “Share” in the blue navigation bar.
  3. You can now decide whether the recipients are allowed to add their own content to the share. Decide whether you want to protect the link with a password or expiry date.
  4. Copy the link or download the QR code and send it to the intended recipients.

You can upload larger files free of charge via myCloud Transfer and share them with someone else. Neither you nor the recipient need a myCloud login for this. Once the upload is complete, you will receive a download link that you can send to the recipient. Uploading is only available to customers in Switzerland although customers in other countries can also download files.

Go to myCloud Transfer(opens in new tab)

Want to send a file that exceeds the maximum attachment size of 15 MB? You can attach the required file as a link to your e-mails via a separate shared window directly in Bluewin e-mail. This saves on storage in the inbox for you and the recipient. The recipient does not need a myCloud account to download the content or add new content.

Organise and manage content

Find photos, videos and files

To find your photos quickly, you can use the filter function or search for the photos in the timeline by the date they were taken or by using the “Places” function. This lets you find the location you took your photo using a map. You can organise your photos and videos in albums to make it easier. Video tutorial for Apple(opens in new tab) or Android(opens in new tab)

If you can't find files or folders, you can use the search function (magnifying glass symbol in the top right-hand corner) or look in the recycle bin.

Delete and restore

When you delete a photo or video, it disappears completely from the album and from the photo area. The contents are moved to the recycle bin where they can be permanently deleted. If you have deleted files in error, you have 30 days to recover them.

  • You can restore deleted photos and videos in the Albums section. To do this, go to “Recycle bin” in the overview. Select the desired photos and videos and click on the circular arrow representing the restore symbol. Remember that this function is only available until the recycle bin is emptied.

Backup: additional security

myCloud computer backup

The myCloud computer backup automatically and continuously backs up folders and files that you have stored locally on your computer or a connected external hard drive. If you lose your computer, you can restore your backup to a new computer or recover accidentally deleted files. You can also back up multiple devices, allowing you to access your backed-up computer data from anywhere, even with your smartphone or tablet.

myCloud Backup Computer Screenshot

Deleted/overwritten files are sent to the archive instead of the recycle bin. This means you can still restore your archived data for a year.

  1. Click on the cloud icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the taskbar and then on the computer icon.
  2. Now select the folders you want to add under “Add folder”.

All data is stored on Swisscom servers in Switzerland and in four different secure data centres. Even the failure of an entire data centre would not lead to a loss of data if we ever experienced technical problems. These precautions mean that your data is always safely stored on your myCloud storage. All the data you store on our myCloud servers is subject to Swiss data protection laws(opens in new tab).

In principle, every customer should keep the access data for their online activities (Facebook, Swisscom myCloud, e-mail addresses, etc.) in a safe place and ensure that a trusted person knows where the data is stored. If a deceased Swisscom customer has not made arrangements for this, their heirs will be given access to the requested data after presenting the death certificate and certificate of inheritance.
