    I had Iphone 4 and my photostream had a backup on icloud. Then i changed to Iphone 5 with the same icloud id. For some reasons am using my old Iphone 4 now. When i access icloud from computer, it shows the photos that are backed up while i was using Iphone 5, however when i download the icloud library all the photos are downloaded to my computer. Since my icloud is running out of space i want to delete some of the data from icloud library which am not able to access now.

    i have tried all the possible help provided but in vain.

    Could you please tell how do i access my old data from icloud library.

    Thanks

    Welcome to iMore! iCloud is not a storage option. It's a back up option. It backs up what is currently on your device. You may have back ups of more than one device. You apparently still have the back up of your old 4, as well as a newer back up of your 5. You can delete the old iPhone 4 back up. That would give you more storage space in iCloud. If the 4 has photos you want, I would use Google Photos on both phones to transfer those you want to keep.
