dear Jasper,

I (and Microsoft ...) often struggle with the difference between OneDrive for private use and OneDrive for Business.

For example, I have the impression that everything you can do with photos in OneDrive (private) is not possible in OneDrive for Business, e.g. I can't find anything there specifically for "photos" in the left bar. Is that correct?

I sync my smartphone with OneDrive for Business because I have more storage space there, but have impression that this prevents me from using the specific functions for managing and searching photos.

Any tips on how to do that?
