My iCloud Photos library is corrupt. Photos are missing, the structure is broken. I have a backup of the local photos library with all full res images. I'd like to replace the entire content on iCloud with my local data but am unable to.
My library has more than 40,000 photos and is 200GB large.
- Create a new local, empty library -> it will download all from the cloud instead of replacing the cloud
- Delete all from iCloud.com -> returns a server error during deletion
- Delete in chunks of 1000 images -> "succeeds" but photos are not deleted
- Of course I turned off iCloud photos on all of my devices
All I'd really like to have is a fresh start...possible? If yes, how?
