Why can't I delete files from the cloud?
asquared2

I tried deleting some photos from the cloud, but get the following error message

"Sorry, we couldn't find your file.  Your file may have been deleted from your Cloud using another device"

However, I still see the photos when looking at my cloud on my phone and can open them up.  The problem first started when I accidently tapped to "download" pictures versus "delete" pictures when looking at the cloud on my phone.

Any suggestions?

Hey DE-VzW-Community and Teddymoney469,

If you go into the cloud website, do you still see the pictures you deleted from the Cloud?  If no and you only see them on the Verizon Cloud app on your phone and it is an Android phone, try clearing the Verizon Cloud cache.  That worked for me when I had a similar problem.

You can do that by going into your phone's settings, then selecting Applications/Application Manager/Cloud (Might be under Downloaded or All) then tap Clear Data.  You'll have to setup the app again to make it backup whatever you were backing up and when you were backing it up but it solved the "file already deleted" problem I had.

Were you deleting these photos from a device or when logged into the Verizon Cloud site from your desktop computer?

Many things, such as photos, are not deleted from your cloud when  you delete them from your device.

I get to the delete option in My Verizon > Manage My Media. I suggest deleting from the desktop in order to delete the photos from your cloud.

I am having this issue as well.  Pictures and videos are showing up on my phone that I wish to delete.  I tried to delete them from my phone, but I get the message "Sorry, we couldn't find your file.  Your file may have been deleted from your Cloud using another device".  When I go to the desktop application for the cloud, they are not there at all, so I don't even have the option to delete them.

CrazyCat10, we don't want this to be an ongoing issue for you. Which make/model phone do you have? http://vz.to/1kDL3MI

Do you have your device to set up to sync to Verizon Cloud automatically? http://vz.to/IsygQ6

I have the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge phone and yes it is set up to sync to the Verizon Cloud automatically. The pictures and videos that I wish to delete are only showing up on the phone, they are not showing up on the Verizon Cloud website. When I select them to delete from my phone I get the error message stating that the file cannot be found and it may have been deleted from another device.

Apparently, there's no [removal required by the Verizon Wireless Terms of Service] answer to this question.

This is very frustrating!

I have tried all suggestions on here and nothing works

I am having the same issue. The photos do not show up when I log in from desktop but are still on my phone (Samsung Galaxy S5).

Let's work on this, Samhop and have your photos available on your desktop. Do you receive any error messages when you try to access the Verizon Cloud from your desktop? Are you using the same log in information you use on your phone? Try to sync you phone with the cloud once again and retest http://www.verizonwireless.com/support/verizon-cloud/ .
