I got a 256gb IP7+, which is great as I have a lot of photos, media and apps. In particular, I have around 172gb of photos on iCloud, and store them on my phone using the optimized storage option. The problem -- since i have the space on my phone, all 172gb are being stored on the phone, and when I backup my phone, it's backing up 172gb of Photos from my phone, back to my computer (which already has 172gb of these photos on disk in the desktop Photos app, plus they are also residing in my iCloud storage). Making things even worse, they were getting sucked into my Time Machine backup for yet another copy, although I just excluded that. Ok to get to the point, anyone know of any way to turn off including these photos in the iOS backup as I don't need or want another copy of these photos? Thx!
