    Default Google Photo's not coming down to PC via Back Up and Sync

    Has anything changed with regards to Google Photo's and the Windows Back Up and Sync app?

    Up to yesterday, any photo or video which I took on my Mi A1 would auto upload to Google Photo's and then Back Up and Sync on all my PC's would sync a copy back down to each machine.

    All of a sudden today, with no changes on my side, no photo's or video's are being sync'ed down to the PC's. I can see the photo's if I go to my account at photos.google.com but they are just not coming down through back up and sync. Also, if I delete an older photo at photos.google.com, it does not delete from the pc's - something is broken on back up and sync.

    If I add or delete via drive.google.com, sync happens in all directions.

    Any idea's why all cloud to back up and sync app synchronisation is broken?

    I also have the Mi A1 and have the same issue.
    What I do see is that it still does backup to photos.google.com but then this does not sync to the google photos folder in my google drive thus does not sync to desktop drive.
    So issue must lie between photos.google.com and drive.google.com/google photos syncing

    After testing for the last 2 hrs, the issue is exactly as above and not phone or windows related. Eventually, all my photo's and screenshots which were sitting on photos.google.com did sync across to drive.google.com and then down through the Back Up and Sync app in 1 burst. But now I have taken some more test photo's and they have once again, immediately gone up to photos.google.com but not across to the drive side and hence not sync'ed down to my pc's.

    After lots of research, I see Google Photo's had a massive date bug yesterday which messed up dates of photo's and they are busy fixing it - maybe that is related to this sluggish syncing
