    I never did figure out how to retrieve my photos, but finally found them on a back up flash drive.
    Then had to delete them from photo bucket one at a time!

    Does post 24 above help?

    We used to pay for "satellite" TV so we could get the programming we actually wanted to watch, without adverts. The market got competitive as more sats went up, and the throat-cutting started. Next thing you know there is 21 minutes of program and 39 minutes of laxative and anti-depressant commercials in 60 minutes. Then the subscription rates nearly doubled. We cut the cord and told them to shove it, and instead by bargain box-set DVDs of things we want to watch like NOVA, a sitcom or two, Dick Van Dyke show, DesiLu stuff, etc.

    Backup is bigger than a single copy of something, if you want to keep it for lifetime.

    IMO, really important photos need to be professionally printed out and framed and put on the wall,
    although they will fade with time, too.

    Hardware, software, compatibility, actual media failures, lots of ways to lose your stuff.

    I have some photos in the bucket, that are not saved anywhere else, due to a laptop crash last year.
    I am using copy and paste, one photo at a time, to recover mine from the Bucket.
    I'm only recovering the ones I really want. I don't login, I just access my chunk of the bucket as a guest, there is seemingly less adware interfering if I'm not logged in, but it still does interfere somewhat, after I recover about 20 photos, the bucket locks up. I exit and try to reenter as a guest...it doesn't always work, I suspect it has something to do with how busy their servers are?

    I've recovered about 100 photos so far, about 1000 to go.
    I believe us non-paying users have til Dec 31 2018 to recover our photos...if the bucket lasts that long?
