    Default Delete all content prior to 30 days...

    Morning all,

    Typically when you delete items (in my case, all items) from iCloud, one has to wait 30 days before it is truly deleted by Apple.

    I'm curious if this can be forced to be done sooner?
    To be honest I sort of want to reset my iCloud to a clean slate and start over.

    Waiting 30 days basically means I can't backup photos etc. in the interim. Weird really...

    To be clear, I merely want all my photos removed from iCloud, and then to start over saving photos. But, since I've deleted all the photos, it appears that it will take 30 day before they are truly gone. Thus, I can't add more photos, or turn the photos section on, in iCloud. Doing so would 'cancel' the current delete process, no?

    I've turned off iCloud \ Photo Library. I'll turn it back on in 25 days. By then, all photo items should be deleted.
