    I don't keep nudes there, so I'm not really worried about it. Haha!

    I also use OneDrive to back them up. I figure that way I'm covered. 2 services that back them all up when I'm on wifi and charging. Then, I tend to share the ones I really like on Facebook or other social sites, so those pictures are backed up in at least a 3rd place.

    I don't keep noods anywhere. But I do keep ideas and app development stuff in an encrypted file on Google. Not like it's the end of the world stuff or going to change how we live today but there are still business plans and stuff. I'd rather not have everyone peering into them.

    Yeah. I don't have that problem, but I can see where you'd want to make sure that stuff was for your eyes only.

    Use mobile phone for normal stuff, talk, text, surf, but would like to get some input/advice on syntax in trying to batch file xcopy from pc to mobile phone sd card for backup and mobility purposes. Currently use batch files for automatic backup between pcs on network and disks and thumb drives.

    Can you help.

    No reason you cant use your batch files on a PC to copy from/to the phone. As long as the phone is set to File Transfer in USB settings when connected.

    Welcome to the Forum!

    Sure you can do that. What does your batch file currently look like?

    Thanks for the welcome. Hope I can contribute.

    I use Windows 10, and the File Explorer (old Windows Explorer) very heavily.

    My problem is finding the correct syntax for the device name of the phone in the batch file. I can copy manually between the pc and phone through File Explorer. No problem there. My only problem is identifying the mobile device name for the batch file.

    Here is a test file I created to figure out how to do it. I get path not found with it.

    echo %date% %time% >> d:\data\misc\bu.txt
    echo d leon >> d:\data\misc\bu.txt
    xcopy d:\data\hvsc computer\"mark's leon"\"sd card"\data\hvsc /c /d /h /i /r /s /y >> d:\data\misc\bu.txt

    My phone shows up in File Explorer as Mark's Leon (LG Leon). Where the "computer\"mark's leon" is, I have tried something like dev:"\ ..., but still getting errors.

    Are you trying to backup files or create a list of file names into bu.txt?

    To transfer files you'll need to use ADB.

    Example:

    Adb Devices
    adb pull /sdcard/camera c:\backup_camera\
