I recently made some computer changes and upgraded hardware. It's a hassle no matter how seamless it's supposed to be. People who design this stuff can never account for every possibility. In my case I synched my photos to my new machine and about 200 ex-girlfriend photos poured in. She's only in a small percentage of them and I have a lot of photos from the time we were together, but I only have them backed up to the cloud. Storage is so cheap that I feel like it's insane to ever get rid of old photos no matter how bad they are, and it's not like I have horrible or painful memories of that time. It wouldn't be cathartic in any way to delete them. So they live on in some small corner of a server. And that's where they belong.
