“I had an iphone 3 and synced all the photos to my laptop. When I got my iphone 6s I synced the same photos to the new iphone. For some reason I am unable to delete these photos. It has been like this for almost three years! In this three years I have formatted my computer. The photos in question are NOT on my computer at all and NOT on iTunes. They are on my phone unable to delete. When synced they do not even appear on the DCM folders. I am really stuck as I cant get rid of them and keep running out of space!”
