Not sure if this is the correct forum to talk about this but need help if possible.

I have my whatsapp backed up onto my google drive, so everytime i switch phone (every 3-5 months) i have all my data with me.

But the thing with whatsapp is when i restore to a new phone my whatsapp pictures jumble up which really annoys me as some old pics get overwritten with random images and have loads of random duplicates.. anyways. I would like to clear all the images i have saved on my google drive linked with Whatsapp (i have copied over all the important photos onto my laptop already)... how do i go about this? I would like to keep my chats, I just want to get rid of all the images linked.

I thought that what's app images were in a separate folder under the phones galley. Mine are along with a folder for screen shots and downloaded pics ect. I don't auto back those folders, just my camera shots to Google drive, but I have what's app messages auto backup evey week. If I get a new device my what's app messages will restore but no photos. They are lost forever. Not sure that's helped you?

My whatsapps default is on so it backsup everything, chats/messages, photos, videos to my google drive account.

I dont mind it backing up, just that i have over 9k photos, and when i set up my new phone today, it automatically added the 9k photos, now when im setting up my whatsapp, its flipping restoring all the 9k images once again - so now i have around 17k images showing up in my gallery which im just going to delete when its finished restoring! But i have a feeling they still wont disapear from my phone as they are still in my cloud storage

Ah. I never really want to keep the what's app photos as they are very compressed. What's app software is amazing quick and good at shrinking the photos though. I found this which tells you how to do what you want but I guess you know what your doing. https://www.whatsapp.com/faq/en/android/28000019

Its just my whatsapps all jumbled up with the years of data kept on saving and now there are loads of duplicates of images all over. Although i am sure i have all the right images/orders saved on dropbox. So just wanted to clear out my whatsapp gallery from my whatsapp account so i can start photos again,, but keep my number/chats etc

Takes me a couple of months just to work out how to switch a new phone off and on . By the time i've worked out where the damned thing stores videos you will have been through six new models !
