General Help  - 
 
I'm pretty sure my account is ruined.

It all started a few months ago. I downloaded the auto backup tool and started to backup every photo I had. Eventually the tool started to fail and now I can't upload anything.

I can't upload pics via the iOS app (multiple devices), the browser app, G+ photos, Google Photos, Picasa Web Albums, nothing works.

I've read that the account can become throttled but this is crazy, it's been months (probably Christmas) since it's worked.

Can anyone at Google just reset my "photos" account? I'm fine with losing everything, I just want my mobile pics to backup. I love the Autoawesome and Stories.

As a side note, I tried uploading my drive storage and it didn't fix anything. This is so screwed and there's no one to ask for help.

I can no longer upload photos from my phone or PC into Google Photos or Google Drive.

A few months ago I enabled Google Picasa Auto Backup.  I was happily backing up my photos from my PC and my phone until one day it stopped.  I thought my Google Drive was full but I had selected the option in the backup that give me unlimited storage so that shouldn't be an issue.

To troubleshoot the issue I've deleted every single picture out of my Google Drive and out of the Photos app and yet I STILL can't upload.

When the auto backup runs I see a  cloud icon with a line through it on each photo (as if to so "No, this isn't in the cloud").  Clicking on the photo displays a quick message that says something to the effect of "Photo too large or unable to determine file type for upload".

I can't get anything into the account.  It seems to be broken. 

Anyone have an idea on how to fix it?  I want to pay for more storage but not if Drive isn't working for me.

I found this to be a very interesting read.
I have found that the most effective leaders are alike in one crucial way: They all have a high degree of what has come to be known as emotional intelligence. It’s not that IQ and technical skills are irrelevant. They do matter, but mainly as “threshold capabilities”; that is, they are the entry-level requirements for executive positions. But my research, along with other recent studies, clearly shows that emotional intelligence is the sine qua n...

Buzz was a crappy Google Twitter clone. Google+ is like Google's Facebook. Google+ actually has some really cool features. Check out some of the info here:
