Keep getting notices that 9k+ photos unable to convert to HQ.

Storing on Google Drive.

Most taken with Android – any way to modify them?

Thx!

Wow.

Do you have any idea why they don’t convert? Are you taking RAW photos? – they can’t compress. Did you have a Pixel phone at any time? they allowed original size without using up storage.

Have you tried “Recover Storage” ? Do you get the same message? See these videos.

If none of that helps, see if this thread in Google’s forum describes your situation and add a “Me Too.”
