    Wife has an older droid from Version and it says the storage is full. Windows can’t find any photos on the phone when I connect it to my USB port on Window 10 desktop computer. I can see the photos on the phone and think they maybe on the cloud although we haven’t signedup for any cloud.

    After fooling around with it for a while I think we actually download some photos, but they did not delete from the phone and it would not allow me to change the download folder so there is over 450 photos all mixed up who knows where.

    Ok well it looks like I have to delete each photo 1 at a time.

    Do you have a micro sd card in it? Are you looking in the dcim folder?

    You should find the photos in the DCIM folder as john35 stated. They may be in a subfolder within DCIM such as Camera. If you copy the photos to your computer they will not be deleted from the phone, you need to do a copy then delete or use move which will delete them after copying.

    If the phone has a micro SD card, there will be a DCIM folder on it as well where additional photos will be found.

    I'm sorry that I couldn't respond to this sooner, but I was on vacation and didn't have a computer. Actually I was trying to remove the photos before we left and decided to just take a camera.
    Anyway I'm back and will try it again as soon as I get caught up. I can't remember the details now but I'm sure I'll find out.

    The phone does not have a micro SD card as far as I can see unless I have to take it apart.

    Did you drag the notification bar down and switch from Charge Only to File Transfer?
