maybe you are using 45G of goog ie 30G above your free 15G quota and are having to pay google one for the extra space

well you can convert photos on your google drive and google one to free unlimited google photos cloud storage if you want

  • download google backup and sync app on your pc
  • enable google photo backup
  • enable google drive backup
  • wait for sync to complete (approx 1 hr for every 1G)
  • disable google drive sync
  • close google backup and sync
  • drag all photos from google drive folder to google photos folder
  • wait for sync to re upload photos to google photos

once you are happy photos have converted correctly

  • login to google drive google one web interface
  • delete google drive photo folders
  • check you are now using less than 15G
  • you can now cancel your google one subscription

 

 

the dangers of linking your google drive #googdrive or google one #googone to your google photos #googphotos (#unlimited) #cloud #photo #backup @smugmug @flickr #flickralt #flickrip

the dangers of linking your google drive #googdrive or google one #googone to your google photos #googphotos #flickralt #flickrip

the main danger / reason is

  • if you delete a photo from Google Drive, it’ll also get deleted from Google Photos

(why would you want to delete a photo from unlimited ! storage ?)

if fact all the deletion rules are just too complicated (and you will end up using and needing to pay for google drive or google one space)

see (read ? & understand ?)

and then goto

to check your settings and check that the

  • Create a Google Photos folder

setting

  • Automatically put your Google Photos in a folder in My Drive

is

  • set to OFF (or NO)

 

goog one storage #googone upgrade from 15G #cloud #backup #storage

If you get the message “You’re out of storage space and will soon be unable to send or receive emails until you free up space or purchase additional storage” you may need to subscribe to google one cloud storage

Uninstalling google drive will not cancel your subscription so to cancel a subscription

  • Go to play.google.com.
  • Check if you’re signed in to the correct Google Account.
  • On the left, click My subscriptions.
  • Select the subscription you want to cancel.
  • Click Manage and then Cancel Subscription.

sometimes complaining backfires and you get your money back so thank you (?) @multcloud #cloud #backup #flickralt #flickrip #customerservice #photo #backup

sometimes complaining backfires and you get your money back so thank you ? Mult Cloud !

i had hoped Mult Cloud would let me save / copy / transfer my 22,000 photos from flickr to googphoto before @smugmug destroy them all next week

but after trying and failing 20 times and creating 5 customer support tickets i caved in and asked for my $7 back and they gave it back to be WITHOUT hestitation when actually i wanted them to fix the bug(s) and stop it hanging after 62 copying photos instead of all 22,000

so back to the drawing board or alternatives.net as i call it
