I have a ton of stuff. Some of it is very old. One bizarre issue I run into when using android is that I can't copy or even see some of the oldest files when I plug the phone to a computer and open it for transferring files.
For some reason, the computer can't read or copy some files. There is no corruption or data loss because I can browse said files on the phone, open them or send them through Whatsapp.
Which is what I did last time. I have to back up a thousand photos so I send them through WhatsApp in batches of 50. Needless to say, that was quite annoying.
Is there some effective method/software of dumping all images and videos from the phone onto anything?
Why is there such a bizarre data reading issue any way?
Do I like need the android equivalent of shadowcopy or something ?
