Our Photos application may be in a different positions in this folder. Therefore, we will need to search for it and once we've located it, press down on the icon to enter the application.

    This is the section where we can choose which photo folders are backed up and synced with our Google Cloud account.
    Here we can see we have all the different photo folders that we have on our HTC One M8. Currently, we can see that there are two options that have this icon here. It is a blue cloud with a white arrow pointing up inside. This means that these albums in these folders are synced and are backed up with our Google Cloud account.

    We can see that these are not because they have the icon of a gray cloud with a line through it.
    That means that these albums are not synced and not backed up.

    If we want to change those options, we can do it by pressing down on the icon.
    Press down on the icon and we'll see it say, "Backup & Sync on." If we can see this icon and the cloud is blue with the arrow inside that means that this option is activated and that this folder is backed up and synced. Press down on each of these options until we have the desired option for us personally. Just press down on any of the clouds, to make them either blue or gray and this will turn the backup and sync option on and off.
