    I have Photos version on my Nexus 5. I have less than 1% free space, because it has decided to copy over all the photos in my Google+ account (50,000+).

    I don't want my phone to have copies of the photos on my Google+ account - just the photos that I have taken with the phone.

    I did a search, but can't find any answer of how to fix this...

    Can anyone help me get these copies off my phone without deleting them from my Google+ account?

    Turn off Google photos, Picasa sync under Google account in phones settings.

    I think you could disable Google+ on your device and then select all and delete the photos to get your space back on the phone.

    Yes, just as Tadpoles (above) suggested. Just be sure to delete the Google Photos folder. It might also be a good idea to clear the cache of the gallery app (system settings > applications > sort by all > gallery) just in case the folder images are still visible.
