Understanding OneDrive's File Organization for Date-Based Sorting (Google Photos Migration)

Hello

I am planning to migrate my photos and videos from Google Photos to OneDrive, and I would like to better understand how OneDrive automatically organizes these files by date.

Does anyone know which specific metadata or tags OneDrive examines for this organization? Is it based on the creation date, modification date, or another file attribute?

The reason for these questions is that I want to ensure that the migration preserves the date-based organization of my files. Any detailed information about the settings OneDrive uses for this automatic organization would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide!
