Hi there, I'd recommend to sign out from old Apple ID and sign in to your new ID and then do the backup. Do you remember the password ***** old ID ?

Certainly do. I've since changed it to match the new one. This phone has been nothing but a headache. I bought the extra storage but had lost all my family photos. I then got po'd and did a back up from off my computer because iCloud didn't have enough storage. At any rate I got all my important pictures back, but, now do not have any from this August forward. What a mess. Thank you for your help.Douglas

They are probably on your iCloud ID. You can check it from online. Go to www.icloud.com

Login to the old iCloud. Click Photos. Do you see them there

Also, login to the new ID and check as well.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
