    I've spent hours trying to figure out why Photostream is not working with my iPhone 4 and PC.

    I have set up everything in my iPhone 4 from Settings>iCloud (turn photo stream on) and also of course Settings>Photos (turn photo stream on), and also set up my iCloud control panel on my PC with Windows 7 (checked the box for Photostream (and also made sure that the folders are correct under options.) And, of course, in iTunes the setting is to back up to iCloud.

    Photos I take on my iPhone don't go to the computer and photos I drag into the upload folder do not go to the iPhone. Tried syncing, backing up, resetting photostream from icloud.com.

    Help Please!!!!

    Yes, good question, but have that one covered as well. Wondering whether to re-load iCloud into the control panel... but I have to figure out how to first delete it.

    Just use cclean to fully uninstall it. Then restart, then don't change the default folders and you should be fine. Worked for me last night

    Ah, re installing it seems to have worked. The problem originated when I tried to set up different download/upload folders. When that didn't work, I went back to the default folders, but that didn't fix it. So, seems there should be a warning not to try to change the folders. I think this must be a bug. Ideas?

    What is interesting, by the way, is that not all photos that I place in the upload folder on my computer go to my phone, only some of them. Even though the are all JPEGS, might be something about the format.
