    Hey!

    I recently upgraded from a 3T to a 6T. Love the 6T. what a phone! But I have an issue, I saved all the old insta stories of my kids to the handset, but they were not on google photos. So when I cleared out my old phone and sold it, did I delete the back ups of the insta stories completely? Or are they in the cloud somewhere in a digital back up that I would have done on android? So far have been unable to find them which the wife is not happy about... anyone able to help?

    You needed to enable the backup of the particular folder.

    If you did screenshots of them, then you needed to enable the backup of the screenshot folder.
    If you created a new folder, the phone automatically asked to back them up.

    So yup, you've deleted them.

    Thanks for the response...If I had said yes to backing them up, where would they be?

    Would they just have showed up in google photos?

    Yes, they would just show up there (obviously after the entire upload has been completed).

    Note: I recommend using the "high quality" option instead of the "original picture" quality, as you only get 15GB for free with the original option, where as you get unlimited data on high quality.
