    Hey,

    i tried deleting photos from the Google Photo App today, and I can't anymore. It keeps saying " Photos doesn't have access to delete items on you SD card. Go to the Gallery app to continue deleting."
    My problem is, my Nexus 5X doesn't have a gallery app or an SD card, and deleting photos used to work fine 'till at least last week when i tried for the last time.
    I've already tried rebooting my phone and i cleared all the cache, my Photos app has all the required permissions it needs, i checked in the settings. Also, if i delete the photos with File Expert or the photo viewing option over the camera, they're still here. Can anybody help me?
    Thanks in advance!

    A photo exists as a file in a folder named the same as the "album" - but there can be 5 albums of the same name. Only the last name in the folder string is used as the album. It sounds as if you're deleting files other than the ones Gallery is showing.

    Yes that may be true, but it still doesn't explain why I cant delete pictures in the Photo App from Google itself..
