Question: Re-downloading High Quality Images from iCloud
This forum software wouldn't let me edit my original post, or delete it, so I am creating a new one.
So apparently iOS decided to enable iCloud Photo backup without telling me.
Now it is giving me alerts that 667 photos "could not be downloaded in full original size" because I don't have enough space on my phone. Apparently iOS decided to set it to "download in low quality".
The problem is I dont use iCloud photos. I use Google Photos. And I want all my stuff on my phone in *original* high quality. But apparently iOS has taken all of that OFF my phone and put it into the cloud.
Now how do I get it?
I tried freeing up space. I don't believe it reacted by re-downloading everything.
I tried disabling iCloud. It threatened to delete all my photos off the phone (!!!) ***...
If I disable iCloud, let it delete my entire life, change the setting to "Download in Original Quality", then re-enable iCloud, will it put everything back on my phone in high quality? If not, how can I get all my images back on my phone. And in the future - apple - dont turn something on without asking me.
