iPad Photos Taking up too Much Space or Memory? SOLVED!

iPad Photos Taking up too Much Space or Memory?  SOLVED!

DO NOT BACKUP/RESTORE!  DO NOT DO A FACTORY RESET!

Your iPad has been programmed to remember to forget!  Yes!

Your iPad is storing tons of photos in the deleted folder section of your Photos App.  Ok so you open it up and it is empty?  Your iPad is LYING TO YOUR FACE!

SOLUTION:  Set your iPad a couple of years back in time.

General --> Date and Time --> set it back three years. (Mine is 1 years old, but so what...)

Go back to your Photo app, open your Deleted pictures folder, and voila!  There should be tons of photos!  Delete them! 

I then set my iPad back in time again and found more photos and videos in the deleted folder, so I deleted them, and opened up the deleted photos folder again and found more!  It does not make ANY SENSE TO HUMANS, but the computer has been PRGRAMMED BY TEAMS OF PEOPLE MAKING INCORRECT DECISIONS THAT IMPACT THE LIVES OF EVERYDAY PEOPLE!

So I cut 37.5 gigs down to 4 gigs.    This was after contacting apple support who, guess what, advised me to factory reset and restore.  HORRIBLE ADVICE!!! Provide people with PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS, instead of ROBOTIC LABOTOMIES!  I may have lost a year's worth of music and Japanese studies.

I am basically going to copy and paste the title sentence a bunch of times at the bottom of this entry in the hopes that when people search for this problem, they can find this solution, instead of drastic solutions.
