But there are some things that you need to remember- First, that a picture or video that you previously backed up to Google Photos remains there even if you delete it from your computer.

And, if you back up to Google Photos and Google Drive at the same time, uploads can take longer and consume more space. We advise you to back up your photos and videos to Google Photos unless you really need a second copy on Drive.
