Hi all, keep getting a warning from Google drive saying my data limit has been reached. I checked and it was mostly photo so I removed them from drive and changed the settings that I thought told it to keep uploading my photo's, but the limit warning is back.

How do I make sure I'm not uploading all my photos? And..... how do I really clear my drive account, clearly I haven't been doing it right so far!

Many thanks Dave

I presume you have "Auto Add" in Settings in Google Drive on your phone turned off?

This is found under Google Drive on your phone.
Select Google Drive
Select 3 parallel lines (Menu)
Scroll Down to "Settings" and Open.
Turn Off "Auto Add" under Google Photos.

I have had mine turned off since 2016 so it does work

Thanks, rechecked and auto upload was off, everything was off. Cleared cache and recycle bin and it says I'm still on 15gb!

Maybe I'm not looking in the right place......

You've cleared the trash from your Google drive account??

Yea, emptied the trash. Maybe it takes time to refresh?
