    I have installed the new iCloud version 5.0.2 this version include iCloud photo, and i face some issues and i need your support if you can to fix this.

    1- I have added the photos that I need to share in iCloud photo upload folder in this path. "C:\Users\account\Pictures\iCloud Photos\Uploads" the total images under this folder is 26k
    2- The iCloud photo has detected only 3582 from the 26k image
    3- The iCloud photo status in on Uploading for more than 10 hours till now
    4- I have checked the iCloud.com and I found the zero upload in this 10 hours.

    Note that iCloud drive and photo stream are working well. Also I'm running this on windows server 2016 techincal previews 3

    First thing I realise is you are using Windows server technical preview 3, right? Have you noticed that Windows firewall blocks connections to iCloud photo server?

    Whoa! I was dreaming that Windows Server could run iCloud for Windows! (joking)

    Uh, typically there should be no reason to limit iCloud access in ISP side.

    Maybe, Apple's issue? Can you try to analyze network traffic of this iCloud app?

    I know a tool called Wireshark. This one, unfortunately, can only capture packets through NIC, but not for certain process. And I assume your Windows Server has lots of other apps installed, so it is even harder to capture packets sent by iCloud client.

    It's working now, but the upload is very slow, and I have a great connection on my device.

    do you know any solution to increase the speed for the icloud process

    Guys, your internet connection is way too awesome for me. :D

    Uh, are you in corporative network? Could you try to use a VPN service to see if anything could change?

    I think the issue it in iCloudPhotos.exe itself as I uploaded 60GB to Dropbox in a couple of hours. So that I'm asking if there's something to do here because I'm not a windows users :)

    Hmm. Could you just give up using iCloud photos for Windows? Other forum members say it can achieve upload but cannot sync changes through Macs and iOS devices.
    I know this should not be an option. I am a Windows user but I don't use iCloud for Windows since it didn't recognize Windows 10.

    acutely what I want is to upload this 60GB of videos and photos to the iCloudPhoto then I'll not use it anymore, I tried to upload them via browsers, but everytime the browser crashed because the huge file number. On the other side, this version of iCloud released on 21st October to support Windows 10 :(

    I am really sorry to see that.
    But, uh, maybe, the support for Windows Server is still poor, as Windows Server user is not their target user.
    Can you try this: enable Windows Firewall, and add exclusion for iCloud?

    I have monitored the iCloudPhoto and what i understand that it's upload 10 files every 2.5 min. I don't know why apple doing this.

    Probably because Apple want to limit their server load.
    As I aware, Apple server is not as strong as Microsoft or Google.

    No, I guess this is a bug in this iCloud version, as the upload speed over the :apple:Mac or :apple:iPhone is very fast and stable so it's not related to the apple server I guess.

    I have sent them an email to check if they are aware of this or not and what action we can take here.

    Thanks Shirasaki for you support ;)
