    My iCloud from my phone to my PC quit working early this year...like in January. I am diving back into my scrapping this fall, so I need to get my pictures going again. Last night, I ran a repair on my iCloud with no luck. Any ideas on how to get it working again? I really depend on it in my workflow. Help!?

    I would suggest unlink your PC, then uninstall iCloud utility from PC, then restart, then reinstall and then re-link and see if that works :) If not I have a friend who's a Genius that I could quiz for you :)

    Not fun at all! I have no experience at all with it, sorry.
    I hope you get it to working again!

    I switched to dropbox and use the automatic camera uploads feature because the sync through iCloud was so flaky for me on my PC, worked out great because then I switched to an android phone and it still works great.

    I had actually already tried the uninstall routine a few times and it didn't work but I did finally find the answer! I had to delete all of my mediastream cache. Directions in this video - just in case anyone else runs into the same trouble:

    I had been using DropBox as a back up too but I prefer the icloud so I am back in business!

    I've been using Dropbox with my iPhone due to my iCloud sync being broken too. Have to check out that video!

    The youtube video information worked like a charm - I did scroll down at the bottom of the video - as I didn't have a media folder- so he tells you what to do if that is the case at the bottom of the post... So happy to have my photos in my photo-stream again! Thank you!
