Didnt work. It deleted the photostream photos on my device. Turning it back on redowoaded the few that were there previous (19 pics) and stopped.Ok I have read others having a buggy issue with photostream when making sub folders. I would delete it and go to settings and toggle photostream off then on go to a wifi source and it should work.
I'm afraid Apple just haven't got this right yet. It's the same damn thing in Aperture...Delete from photo stream ...The pictures re-appear. I was getting stuff from September last year, despite deleting them...The iPad and phone behave the same way.My partner and I joined the Apple brigade last Autumn. She takes hundreds of pictures on her iPhone and I foolishly assumed they were all finding their way to my Mac via Photostream - I never checked until this morning when we both knew she had taken numerous photos yesterday and had looked at them on the phone on the way home. So I immediately realised around 20 images were missing when I checked Photostream on my Mac so I attached the phone to the Mac and was horrified to discover 157 photos out of 685 taken over the past 4 months had never found their way to Photostream!! That is pretty shocking especially as we deleted hundreds of older photos from pre February without ever checking!! What buggy bit of software drives this - must admit as newcomers to the Apple stable I think the hype about the products and software is overblown.
Indeed JMG - and as long as they make it to my Mac they are backed up twice and a copy kept at another address BUT if they don't make it off the iPhone ........ as in the case of Photostream.This goes to show that you ALWAYS have a backup of important things like photos.
