I’ve been trying to clean up our hard drives lately. DH has approx. 25k digital photos over the past many years. Of those, 25k I’d say at least 5k are of his exes going all the way back to HS. I probably have 5k pictures (I’m not good at taking pics) and I have maybe 500 of my ex.
We’ve had a few awkward moments with our friends/family when we’ve been looking at his old travel pics and they’ve commented that 75% of the pics were of previous exes. And I’m not talking about couple pics but pics of the ex by herself…which honestly must be weird for people to see, not to mention weird for me to sit through.
I’ve started “tagging” all the exes in photo gallery to make it easier to delete them. DH doesn’t want to “erase” them from his life but has mentioned he wants ME to pick out a few I think are “acceptable” and then delete the rest.
So, how many do you have? Anyone have an easier way to go through that many photos?

i don’t know where his digital files are of his ex i’m assuming their on his brothers computer at his parents house. Most are prints at his parents house which still need to be destroyed. i ripped up and deleted all pictures of me and my ex after we broke up. i don’t understand y people keep them.

Fiance and I found an old external hard drive of his, and there was a good 300 pictures of his labrador-ex wife doing some pretty slutty naked things. Fiance was soo embarassed and deleted them the second I told him they were there.
(I was not snooping, I was trying to find season 1 of a tv show with his permission!)
Anyways, not only do I hate the bitch for existing, but now I’ve seen some pictures of her asshole up close. Eye roll.

No idea on how to clean hard drives and I probably wouldn’t on either of our lappytappys. I have no pictures of my ex and as far as I know, Fiance doesn’t either.

none! I made sure to throw away every piece of evidence of ex boyfriends before we moved in together.
@the_future_mrs: my husband had pics of his ex on his hard drive too. (while we were still dating) not naked ones though! thank god…but i moved all of them into a folder called “my stupid ex girlfriend” he got the hint and deleted them.

@the_future_mrs: Yeah I found ALL the pics/videos of naked ex-gfs and it was a super sore subject for a long time….he didn’t understand why I was so upset since I had him. He finally deleted them after months and months of nagging but we found 3 more hard drives where he made backups so I’m still finding those nasty pics. He’s given me permission to delete them w/o asking him.
@totheislnds: We made a folder on our main computer called “Beotches and A-holes” to put some of the pics in. I just wish he’d pick the “regular everyday” pics of them instead of their modeling photos.

Haha I had to laugh at this post because we have been together pretty much since digital camera’s became THE THING!
So all of our ex-photos are in physical albums. I would never want to delete that part of my life and I would never expect him to. However, I do like that those memories are tucked away in an album that we rarely open!

Darling Husband and I have now been together for 7 yrs so any digital files he may have had are long gone by now. We both threw away our “exes” box when we moved in together.

I’m sure I have some random physical photographs stuffed away in a box somewhere, If I come across them I will throw them away. My husband doesn’t have any. I mean, he’s been tagged in pics on FB by a girl or two he used to “date” but I don’t really care.

One of the perks of a husband who didn’t even have a facebook before we met haha! He didn’t have a computer! My computer became “ours” and I don’t think I had to do a lot of deletion. There were pics of me on there (not crazy ones think boudoir) I had taken for an ex, which I promptly deleted (even though I’d like to see them again after 2 babies… sigh…).
The pics he did have of his ex were from things like football games, road trips, tailgating, Nascar races (she was big into sports unlike me). I never asked him to get rid of them, there are still a few floating around in the picture boxes somewhere, but the ones of just the two of them magically disappeared when we started dating.

I got rid of mine. Darling Husband has a few photos of old gf’s simply because he’s too lazy to go through his mountain of photos and find/delete them. I think there’s one or two that might still be on his FB. It doesn’t matter to me becuase I know those photos don’t mean anything anymore and everyone knows he’s madly in love with me

@the_future_mrs: I really love how you refer to the ex as a labrador in this and the other e-stalking thread, hilarious!
But as for me, I’ve never snooped through FI’s harddrive, but he doesn’t take pictures in general so I just hope he doesn’t have any >_<** I have a couple of my own but probably won’t bother deleting… they’re buried in college photos (and basically look like pics with friends.. no kissy stuff!).
