The relatively recent divorce between Drive & Photos still has me a bit confused. Though to be honest, I was never really sure of this question: Before the changes, when I shared a Drive folder with Photos did that import & copy photos, duplicating & doubling the storage requirements?

I have about 40GB of photos & videos in Drive that seem to show up in Photos as well, and I suspect I might be getting double "charged" on the storage against my quota.

Now that the two seem completely disconnected from each other, can I delete photos in my Drive that are also in Photos without it deleting the copy in Photos?
