What's this mean on my new iPad Air I wonder?


Thread Starter

Hi folks, after getting the above new device, I did the setup all OK but when I go into the iPad Air Settings x iCloud x Photos x iCloud Photos x ON (slider) up pops this message about "Finder is not supported when iCloud Settings are ON and some 5127 photos will be removed!" Yikes, not keen on that idea! If they were deleted, where would they be living on my PC I wonder?

I thought Finder was only associated with Apple Mac and I never got this message on my now deceased old iPad4 Mini................

Any advice appreciated.

I would click on, Cancel, preserve your files for photos. Next, you need to backup your photos saved on your iCloud drive. Those photos should still be on your iCloud drive. Please see the below link for more information regarding this problem you have encountered.

Also, let us know whether or not you were able to resolve this issue.
