Samsung Cloud Drive is a storage space dedicated to keeping your files just where you need them no matters anywhere you are. You can send files from any Samsung device that is logged into your Samsung account, and access them on any other PC or device by logging into your account.
Last year, the Korean firm announced that it will discontinue its Samsung Cloud service in 2021 and switch it with Microsoft’s OneDrive. Therefore, it looks like the company has started preparing to implement its decision of stopping the Cloud service.
According to the info (via TechRadar), Samsung Cloud will no longer be supporting Gallery Sync, Samsung Cloud Drive, and Premium Storage and your data will be deleted if you do not take urgent action. The end of these features will be by country groups and based on different timelines. Please check if you are Group 1 or Group 2 HERE.
