    I know my dogs are backed up with Google docs and My Drive, but my folders and pics aren't.

    I've been copying and pasting into my PC. But if I try to many folders, I get unspecified error.

    Is there an app and program for the PC that's good?
    One

    I use Google photos. Awesome app. Backs up to your Google drive.
    Awesome little photo gallery as well.

    I also just let Google Photos back up my pics. I have it set to backup while charging, and to keep a folder in my Drive. So when I plug it in at night, pics are backed up to Google's cloud.

    As far as PC > sync apps, I'm not familiar with any. Your File Manager app on that phone has a sync with laptop via WiFi option. Have you tried that vs connecting via cable?

    Okay, I didn't know it could do that. I'll do that.
    Thank you very much.

    I use Box and Box Synch to do 2 way synch. When that gets full I transfer to PC. I don't get the love affair with Google photos. If you die tomorrow how will your family get your photos? They have to know your password? Hope you left it somewhere.
    I'm old. I think of these things.

    I downloaded them from the cloud to my PC.

    If I die tomorrow I think their biggest gripe will be "what the hell do you mean with: 'we have to get jobs now'?!?
