    lost photos from iphoto

    My iphoto library got deleted. I recently tried to back up my iphoto library by moving into google drive ( online storage) . i just dragged the file over into google drive. But the file was too big ( i hade about 60 gb of photos) google drive told me to delete it because i didnt have enough storage room. I thought when i dragged it into google drive it copied it but when i deleted it off google drive my iphoto library got deleted also somehow
    can some one help me get my photos back

    I think the problem is that you did a simple Drag and Drop. On a Mac, this action does NOT copy the file, but moves it. How did you delete the file from the Google Drive folder? If it was using Move to Trash, is it not just sitting in the Trash Bin?
