    I have an iPhone 5, iOS version 8.1.3. I pay $.99/mo for iCloud storage. My photos were backing up seamlessly to the cloud when on wireless using iCloud Photo Library (Beta). For some reason, I decided to turn on My Photo Stream. I deleted some photos from my phone to free up space, and those photos are now gone from the cloud and all that is there is what is on my phone now. Did My Photo Stream preempt iCloud Photo Library? Thanks in advance.

    Icloud is a bit confusing. Did you turn off iCloud Drive?

    When you turned it off did it tell you the photos would be deleted from your phone?

    No it didn't. It really should only allow you to choose either the cloud or the stream. It did not warn me of anything.

    Well, they stayed on the phone, but stream overwrote what was in the cloud, so that's what got deleted. I deleted from the phone thinking everything had already been uploaded to the cloud, before I added the stream option. Does that make sense?

    Well, get this. I turned of stream and the photos are back in the cloud! Definitely a faulty feature though. Thanks for your help. Stream for me is useless.
