I need to recover space due to 1.53 GB of photos taking up my google drive quota. However, before I go ahead and compress these photos using the recover space tool, I want to know which photos I am compressing. I want to know so I can prevent that from happening again-- or perhaps it is going to compress my pixel 2 photos incorrectly?
To the best of my knowledge, I have always had "High Quality" uploads selected and the only "original quality" photos have come from my pixel 2 which should be covered until 2020.
This previous solution: https://webapps.stackexchange.com/a/78812/225552 no longer works due to removal of the method of adding google photos as a folder in google drive.
