    When I go to Settings -- Storage -- Images&Videos there is a folder named Images. It is occupying about 12gb of space. When I click on it, it takes me to Gallery folder. But the gallery is empty as all my photos and videos are auto backed to Google Drive. Can someone please throw some light on what this 12 gb of data is and how I can find it and clear it.

    TIA,
    Jeevan

    You mean you have backed them up and deleted the photos from the device? Or is it just backed up?

    I have backed them and deleted the photos. The gallery actually shows 300mb when I go inside it.

    Check your recently deleted folder.

    From the Google photos bin or the gallery bin?

    In photos, click the hamburger menu and you can access the bin there.

    In Images are counted all image files used by all apps not listed above, like browser cache, games, etc.

    Hi, i managed to clear the images folder, about 30gb worth.
    Go to Settings>Storage>Files>Search:"Images">There will be a lot of images folder from different apps>One of those images folder will be quite large, likely belongs to messaging apps(Telegram)>There are video folder in the telegram folder too, so you might want to delete those to clear some space.

    Hope this helps! :)
