Clear Photo Cache

TheCrazySweed says:

Says I have 530+ photos. I only have 111 or so. Need the cache cleared as I suspect those ghost photos were from failed upload attempts or previously deleted.

You can see here how it lists 6 pages of photos, but going to the next page clears it back to the 'real' number:

Suspect it's the photo cache.

Thanks for the help!

I've seen that happen a lot over the years. It always catches up within a day or so.

John Frattura:

Interesting - but that's really strange, since the counter for how many photos I can upload hasn't changed from <500 for a long time, even though I've only ever had around 100 photos. Shouldn't that counter be closer to 900, since free users have a 1,000 photo limit? No idea where the quota is pulling its data from.

Thank you for your insight!
