    In Windows 8/10 desktop, when saving a file after opening it with the FileOpenPicker api, the api automatically saves it back to the Provider but on Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows Mobile 10 it saves it to the local cache only and not back to the Provider. Am I doing something wrong on mobile or has it just not been implemented yet? My implementation works fine on desktop but not on phones.

    Sorry for posting again but I somehow failed to mention the Provider I'm referring to in my previous post is the OneDrive app.
