I'm not quite sure what exactly is creating your Documents & Photos folders, but it is not the "Camera roll bonus". This bonus was added to your account when the automatic upload was active once and it is by design that this wont disappear after you deactivate it. This bonus storage will disappear by January 31st 2016 if you do not object. Also, this ...

After upgrading to Windows Phone 8.1 I noticed the storage usage had moved to "Other" from photos. Turns out the Mac app for windows can't display or delete DNG files even though it can import them. The phone also doesn't show DNG files in the camera roll if the associated JPG files have been removed. Plugging the phone into a Windows 8 machine, and ...

As you already be suspecting, that is not possible. The operating system is trying to protect people from themselves and do not allow people who may not have a good data plan chew through it too quickly.

The reason you see this happens is because your phone only syncs your pictures to OneDrive when it takes them. Once you take a picture it is saved locally. At the phone's earliest convenience, it will upload the file to OneDrive. Changes to your pictures in OneDrive do not sync back to your phone. Also if you delete a photo from your phone, the copy in ...

I actually just reset my phone and tried this. As far as I can tell, there is no way to load your previous images. I think storing your panoramas on photosynth.net (an option in the app) could perhaps prevent this from happening in the future.

The only thing I can think of is to get a (usb) card reader and try to run the recovery tool then - this worked for me. It won't work connecting your phone directly, though. In the meantime I'd recommend removing the SD card from your phone to prevent your photos from being overwritten with different data.

If you have a windows 10 laptop signed in on your account, that will also try to backup pictures and such on onedrive. Perhaps that's related?

There was a bug in the Photos app (I'm not sure if it's been fixed as of this writing) that "deleting" a photo would only remove it from the Photos app but not actually delete it off your phone. You'll need to open File Explorer, select This Device, then Pictures, Camera Roll (or whatever folder the pictures are actually in) and delete them there…
