    Hi, is their a way to check to make sure Windows Mobile 10 is backing up text messages to One Drive? I have"Sync messages between devices" turned on, but I wanted to make sure they are getting backed up to One Drive.

    I don't think they get backed up to OneDrive, they get backed up to Oulook.com. You can go to Outlook.com and check. Steps:

    • Go to Outlook.com and login
    • Click the gear and choose options
    • Select "Manage Categories"
    • Make sure "Contacts" has "Show in folder pane" checked
    • Go back to the main Outlook.com page
    • Select Contacts (under the Categories heading)
    • Select "Arrange by" and choose "Conversation"


    Then your text messages should be displayed.

    I just tried this. Only the email is displayed. No text messages.

    I can only see messages up until October 31, no text message after the 31st show. Not sure if Microsoft changed something.
