As the title suggests,

  1. My settings on my Android app is high quality, not original size
  2. Most photos are getting compressed, very few photos are left uncompressed
  3. Most videos are left uncompressed
  4. The uncompressed items aren't eating into my Google Drive space
  5. For checking, I uploaded with these individual files on another test Google account and found out that they are getting compressed.

I want all items to get compressed since it's the algorithm is best of both worlds - retains 99.99% quality and reduces space by >50%.

I can't delete these items from the cloud since that would immediately delete it from my phone, not allowing another attempt of uploading. What can be done to compress these missed items?

It's best to forget about it since the storage for the uncompressed items isn't coming out of the 15 GB Google Drive limit anyway; although the unlikely wish of downloading the items would mean downloading uncompressed items - a very small price to pay for a free service.
