This is driving me more than a little insane.
Anything my wife backs up to Google Photos is neatly sorted and categorized into subfolders by year in her linked Google Drive. It's been this way for a few years now.
Mine doesn't do this; it's all just a clusterfudge of everything.
I've very recently set her mother's account to back up photos to Google Photos and, in turn, Drive. Hers, too, sorts them to automatically-generated subfolders by year.
Why is it doing this for them? How do I get it do behave this way for me? I've revisited this issue off and on for more than a year with my wife's account, and now, with her mother's brand-new account, to see it behaving as I've always wanted mine to, I'm at my wit's end.
Does anyone have any insights regarding this?
