    Hi,

    I have a problem with my iPhone and iCloud. I'm backing up photos using iCloud, but about 8 photos will not go away for good.

    They keep showing up in the recently deleted folder. I have deleted them about 4 og 5 times from this folder, but somehow - after a period - they are back in the recently deleted folder.

    The photos are deleted from the camera roll, but they always come back n the recently deleted folder even though I manually delete them several times.

    How can I get rid of these photos for good? Are they stored somewhere or am I doing something wrong? Have you guys had this problem?

    I have an fully updated iPhone 5.

    Please help...

    Thanks.

    You photos are deleted from your Photo Stream. Apple just gives you a 30 day buffer to recover a mistakenly deleted photo. Since photos can be precious and irreplaceable this is a fantastic feature.

    Yeah. I know that Apple gives 30 days to change my mind, but the problem is the same photos. I have deleted them over and over again from the "delete folder", but they keep showing up.

    An example: I took a photo I deleted. The photo then shows in "deleted photos folder". I then deleted the photo manually from the "deleted photos folder". About a month later the photo is back in the the d"eleted photos folder". I delete it again. About a month later it comes back. Over and over again.

    Why?

    Maybe part fluke and maybe because you keep deleting it. Could be every time you delete it you get another 30 days. Just forget about it and it will probably go away in 30 days.
