@dflieb @googlephotos Even after clicking "recover storage" this is what things look like. How long until you guys turn off my gmail? Google Photos is taking up over 950GB of storage even though I have free high quality JPGs selected and have used "recover storage" Please don't turn off my gmail.
@dflieb @googlephotos David, I do not take enough photos at original quality on a mobile device to max out the storage. The recover storage accounts for less than 1%. Most of the storage is being taken up by Google Photos, I believe TIFFs created by NIK that Google Photos uploads, but can't convert.
.@googlephotos When I have "free high quality storage" selected in my Google Photos settings, why is Google Photos still taking up almost a TB of space and now threatening to hold my gmail hostage if I don't pay up?
@9to5elbows @googlephotos @gmail I appreciate that. I think this problem is more complicated than that. 1. Google can't/won't convert Nik Photos to high quality JPGs 2. Google Photos won't tell you which photos are taking up space on your GDrive. 3. Google will only let you delete a few photos at a time.
