Help! The Photo Library On My iPad Has Taken Up Most of My Storage

I'm not a techie and I rarely cover tech stuff, but someone in cyberspace saved me.

See that picture above? That's me performing a reading. I had a 10 minute set that I was excited to record for you on my iPad mini. I tested my iPad before I left, and noticed it would only record for four minutes because it didn't have enough memory. I deleted photos, videos and thought the problem was solved. I set up my tripod (I LOVE MY TRIPOD) at the bookstore, hit record on my iPad and performed. I returned to my iPad. It recorded less than four minutes of my performance. NOOOOOOOOOO!

I check my storage under settings when I get home. My Photo Library used up 4 Gigs of storage. How the heck did that happen??? Most of my photos and videos were deleted. I go looking for my Photo Library on the iPad. I can't find it.  Makes no sense.  Now I wonder where the hell is the Photo Library and how do I erase 4 gigs of stuff that I can't find. I know my techie friends are laughing at me, but whatever.

I went online searching for answers. Most articles and people in Apple Support forums said to sync the iPad to iTunes, then unsync or sync it to a empty folder. NONE OF THAT WORKED for me. It worked for some people, but not me.

Finally, after a long night of Googling different phrases for an answer and circles around my eyes, cyber angels rescued me. Thank you SEOMama and TxtForever!!!!!!!

The solution was something I try not do in my personal life, look back at the past. Change the date on the device a few years back and notice that most of your storage is restored. They break down clearing your Photo Library here.

Now I can take photos and video again.
