Ok so you gave me an idea.... I looked into Google Photos... and found a

"bin" so I was able to delete the photos out of the "bin" in google photos.

Smiley Happy problem solved. Thanks

Help is right here, front ad center dionnep7. Let's get your trash emptied on your Droid Turbo. May I ask are you able to access your trash on the device? Also, are you sure that your email trash isn't full? If you can share the details then we can proceed.

I don't know where the trash bin is or how to get to it.  My emails are dumped regularly.

I have never known the device has a user accessible "trash bin". If I deleted something from the phone, it was always deleted immediately and permanently.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

That's the weird part..... I didn't either..... Until it started telling

me the trash was full on the device and now photos were being deleted

permanently. Hence my question...

That is strange. I'm not coming up with any ideas.

Maybe you could try moving the pictures from the phone to a computer or cloud storage and seeing if that helps.

This is rather unusual. I actually own the Turbo myself and I am not seeing anything within the settings of the phone itself that would indicate a trash location. In the storage you can clear your cached data. Could this have been in one of your apps instead?
