In the iCloude Manage storage dialog, I can see

enter image description here

However in the photo app, it shows enter image description here

Obviously a photo is misclassified as an item. Maybe it is corrupted.

How can I identify this 'Item'?

  • actually it shows 50765 in iCloud and 50764 (one less) in Photos – Ruskes Sep 27 '18 at 7:43

I've had "1 item" like you for a long time now, but I figured out how to find it.

  1. On your Mac, create a Smart album
  2. Select "Filename" "Does not include" and then list several file formats, like:
    • jpeg
    • jpg
    • png
    • gif
    • heic
    • webp
    • mp4
    • mov
    • m4v
  3. Save it

Demo smart album:

The "1 item" I finally found:

  • Awesome! It turns out I have a WAV file in the photo library. – Anthony Kong Apr 8 at 10:28

I used an Investigator app on my iPad and discovered there was a pdf file in there. Then I used the Photos app on my Mac and searched for the term ‘pdf’ and the offending file was revealed. Then I just deleted it.
