You will get a notification asking if you would like help freeing up space. It will only remove the photos from your phone that have been backed up to your Dropbox and are older than 30 days. This feature is only available on iOS 8.0 and later. This feature will not delete burst photos, edited photos and Slo-Mo videos on iOS device. This feature will work only when your device is connected to the Internet connection. You will see your deleted photos in the "Recently Deleted" section. While doing this, if you get a message "Calculating space to free up...", then check back in a few hours. Because, it can take some time to determine which photos Carousel can free from your device.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
