    Default Google+ auto backup backs up deleted photos

    If it take a photo or video that I don't like and delete it from my device immediately, auto backup still backs it up to Google+. Is there a way to configure auto backup to delay or just ignore photos that are deleted very soon after they're taken?

    Thanks!

    I don't think so. You could look at it the other way and consider it a nice safety net, in case you mistakenly delete a photo that you wanted to keep instead!

    Hopefully it isn't too much of a hassle to go through your Auto Backup folder in Google+ Photos and delete the ones you meant to delete.

    Thanks for the reply. I do see that side of the coin, which is nice to have. :-)

    I hope that Google doesn't think this way, or at least acknowleges that not everyone thinks this way. I think it's a major oversight or omission. A delay or at least a programmable delay (setting) is a much better option than immediately copying every crappy shot to my G+ account. I can't imagine that this would be hard to implement. Anyone at Google care to respond?

    I LOVE auto backup but this particular thing drives me insane. I'll take 100 pictures and keep 10 and yet all 100 are in my storage up on google+

    I understand why this happens but all I really want is to be able to define a "delay". Backup after 1h, 2h, 8hr, 1d whatever. Something to allow me a tiny bit of time to organize before storing them forever.

    I guess we can just dream...
