    My Android phone auto-sends all the photos I take to my G-mail account drive. I can delete the photos on my phone and in the drive. But, when I go to attach a photo to send in an e-mail, every picture I ever took is there and I can't delete them. So, it isn't on my phone or in the G-mail drive, but it is in the attachment area. UGGGH!

    Does anyone know how to get rid of them in that section or all together when I delete them from the drive?

    Did you check Google drive? Google Photos? Picasa Web Pics? You wouldn't believe how many redundant places Google sticks your stuff.

    Perhaps your gallery thumbnails are still sticking around on your android device, making it appear that all those photos are there. If you can download a file browser app like Astro, go to your DCIM folder and then go to advanced settings and check "show hidden files," a folder called .thumbnails will show up. Delete that folder. See if that does the trick.
