    Default Removing photos from device without removing them from the google+ auto-backup

    Hi,
    Please help!
    My device is running out of space. I have google+ auto backup enabled.
    If I try to delete photo/videos from device, it automatically removes them from the backup also!
    I want to keep my backup photos and still want to remove them from device..
    How do I achieve that?
    Thanks.

    First of all, keep your backup photos in another place, not Google+.
    How? Copy them – from your phone or from Google+ – to another cloud account of sufficient size or to your laptop's or desktop's harddisk. This can obviously take some time and involve a lot of data. So do it only as long as you're on WiFi. Maybe overnight?
    Then erase them from your phone. Which will erase them from your Google+ account too but that is now not a problem anymore because you have that other backup set.
