I have 15GB of storage on iCloud, my total storage space used by backups is 1.1GB, but iCloud says I've used 5.5GB of my space already. How can I "clear out" or reset the iCloud storage meter?
A bit of history
I have backed up both my iPad and iPhone to iCloud, but not without problems. I have over 9GB of photos on my iPhone but I cannot seem to get iCloud to back up all those images. I was able to backup everything else on the phone, but every time I try to backup the images, iCloud says my backup has failed. So I told it not to backup the photos and in doing so confirmed that I wanted iCloud to delete the backup in iCloud. That was yesterday. Today it still shows that I am using more space than I should be. Once I clear out this old backup I hope to try and backup my photos again
