I've uploaded few videos directly from my iPad to youtube, but now, I'm running out of space on the iPad and would like to reclaim some back by deleting the uploaded videos. However, I'm struggling to find an option to delete the videos just from the iPad while retaining them in the cloud.

Do I have to buy extra cloud storage to be able to do that?

  • Based on what do you assume they are still stored on the iPad?

  • @nohillside Thanks for you reply. I haven't used an iPad in while so I can't tell :)

  • First clarifying question - to which cloud do you want to sync the files and free up?
