    Ugghhh, I used to buy into the fantasy that "tech" was supposed to make Life better (or something) What did I do wrong? I know I get those messages "your cloud is full get a bigger cloud" but I ignore it because I'm not paying More Money than I already do.
    AWhat appeared to be a bug hit my phone so in order to get off the page I FDR's the phone (major PIA) everytime I get my phone set up just the way I like it something like this happens.
    Anyway ALL my pics are gone it seems, any magic way to get them back OR at least what should I be doing to make sure that doesn't happen again.
    Thanks.

    Get a DropBox account and they can be set up to sync to the cloud, (on WiFi only if you wish).

    FDRs using the phone (not from a recovery) typically wipe the whole phone. Aside from cloud storage, I also use backup apps just in case. Wish Android did it the way Apple does.

    For offsite 3rd party cloud servers there's Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Mega and Dropbox. You're normally put in at about 2 GB to 5 GB without paying. Mega is pretty new and apparently offers 50 GB of free space, but I haven't used it personally.

    If you have some extra storage in your computer (that's always on) or a file server, then you may want to look into BitTorrent Sync, Sugar Sync, or Spider Oak. Personally, I'm a fan of BitTorrent Sync, but YMMV.

    I use Mega and it is nice. Box also has 50Gb when you sign up.

    PM me your email address and I will send an invite.

    I used the cloud up to this weekend for backing up music and pictures. Bought an "on the go" micro sd adapter for my turbo. Just like getting my sd card slot back. Adapter 9 bucks at fry's. Used my old micro SD card.
