    iCloud Photos folder problem


    Hello,


    I posted this on the apple forum and they recommend I try to find answers here as well. I have seen other people with this problem but none of the solutions have worked out for me.


    I have a growing number of "iCloud Photos" folders in my file explorer that are below the Quick Access and above One Drive. I have already deleted anything involving iCloud using Revo Uninstaller. Still, they persist. They are just empty folders and keep going up in numbers. Last I checked it was at 50+. Any recommendations?

    :)

    iCloud Photos folder problem

    How to Upload Folders of Photos to Albums on iCloud?

    I'm trying to determine the best way to migrate multiple folders of photos on Windows 10 to iCloud.

    Currently, I'm copying each folder of photos to the iCloud Photos\Uploads folder, which successfully uploads the photos to iCloud, however, the photos do not appear in albums and are therefore no longer grouped.

    Is there a way to upload a folder of photos so that it appears in an album on iCloud, or do I have to manually create the album and move the photos into it after uploading?

    Also, after uploading the folder of photos, should I delete the folder from the Uploads folder?
