    I need to sync more often...

    Advertisements
    I'm going to give my daughter my old iPhone since today is her 14th birthday & I'm FINALLY going to let her have a phone

    But prior to doing so I want to make sure I have all of my pics backed up on our desktop and external hard drive .... Which I haven't done in two years

    This may take awhile

    How often do you sync your phone or iPad/tablet with your computer so you don't lose pics when you upgrade/replace you devices? Obviously for me I rarely do it because I take pics on my phone, tablet, camera, and so does DH so syncing everything is always a big endeavor

    My android phone automatically saves all pictures and stuff to my google account. I have it set so it only does it on WiFi and myy tablet does the same thing. It is nice. The only thing that doesn't sync is my laptop but I just login to my google account and can see it all.

    I imagine apple does something similar? If not then that is pretty annoying.

    They have photo stream, but I also like to backup everything to the PC and an external drive. Do you have a storage limit with your google account? I do on iCloud so that has been a problem unless I buy more storage

    I've yet to really figure out how to get everything saved/stored right on photo stream because it seems like some stuff will show on some devices and not on others & I'm not really sure why

    I try to sync once a month. Doesn't always happen, but I try.

    Well text messages back up to my email and my pictures go to a google backup.

    I think we have 1 terrabite storage or something. It was a deal they advertised because this phone didn't have the extra memory card like the Galaxy did. Anyway, Enough that I don't really worry too much right now.

    I think I synced in February before I had to get a new phone...other than that I just rely on it syncing to the cloud when I'm hooked up to wifi
