I decided to back up all my photos that were on my pc and old dvd backups to Google photos, I downloaded backup & sync and selected the folders I wanted to backup and left it churning away. I wanted it backed up in the free high quality storage where it compresses them as that’s good enough for me.
Anyway I went to check this morning and it seems to be backing up some photos to Google drive as well which is eating up my free Drive storage. I can’t seem to find an option to make it only backup to Google photos, anyone know what it’s doing?
It’s still churning away and seems to think I’ve got 52000 photos which I’m pretty sure I haven’t, so not sure what it’s doing!
Do you have any raw files on there? It won’t recognise those as images I don’t think. So you could feasibly have jogs, raw files then the xml files that contain edit info for the raws if you use Lightroom or similar.
