When i sync my iphone, I am getting an error message saying it can't do a backup because i have more than 5GB of space used.
I went to:
Settings --> iCloud --> Storage and backup --> Manage Storage.
I see it says Next backup size 5.0 GB and 4.6 GB of that is coming from Camera roll. So i have a few questions on how to clean this up:
- When looking at my photos, I see:
- Camera Roll (500 pictures)
- Photo Stream (655 pictures)
Since it says, Camera roll on the iCloud storage page, I am assuming if I just delete some pictures and videos from this, it will free up space.
- Is this correct?
- Does iCloud simply backup latest state of camera roll at sync time and if i have previously backed up pictures and i deleted them on camera roll, it will be deleted from iCloud backup?
My second question is around getting all of these pictures down to my computer (I have a Windows XP computer). I am currently NOT syncing pictures in itunes as I find it was making the sync time go from around 45 seconds to over 10 minutes. After a bunch of research the advise everyone gave was to not sync pictures via iTunes. Is there any easy way to download these all to my Win XP computer so I can free up space on my iPhone ?
