I have around 1700 photos that I've discovered are missing from my iCloud storage. (These are family/baby photos that we desperately don't want to lose.)
When I try to download the photos from iCloud to Photos I get the following error:
I can see full-screen thumbnails in the Photos app (and they mostly look to be a decent resolution) but when trying to export/share the file it must be looking for the original and gives this error:
Is there any way to export the thumbnails from the Photos app? I've had a look through the SQLite database file and can't see any blob data that could be thumbnails, although I may have missed it.
I'm hoping someone has a better idea than just taking screenshots of each photo individually, which is the only option I can think of right now.
