HOW TO TRANSFER DATA FROM ANDROID PHONE TO COMPUTER :- BEST TRICK
there's a smartphone, there's a camera; as simple as that. If there's a camera, there are photos, nay lots and lots of photos. Reason being, it is easy to flick out a phone and click a photo.
But, there's only so much that you can click (and store) on your phone till you run out of memory (internal + external). More extensive the camera (megapixels and stuff) better the quality of your photos and better the quality, larger their size. It's no rocket science that at some point of time you will run out of storage. What do you do then? Well, you transfer them.
Here are some pro tips to get you started on transferring photos (including screenshots) from your Android-based phone to a PC.
Use USB cable
One of the good things about Android is the amount of granular control the platform gives you vis-Ã -vis your file folders. All you need to access your Android phone's files (and folders) on your PC is a USB cable (microUSB/USB Type-C). To transfer photos:
Step 1: Connect the phone to PC via USB cable.
Step 2: Connect as a media device: choose MTP option. Choose Camera (PTP) option if you have your camera specific software installed on your PC and MTP is unavailable.
Step 3: Open device to view files.
Step 4: Double click on phone (additionally on the microSD card if you have photos on the microSD card inside your phone).
Step 5: Double click on DCIM folder. This is the folder where cameras store photos. This should give you two options on most occasions: camera and screenshots. Open by double clicking them to access your photos and screenshots.
Step 6: Sometimes the "Screenshot" folder is found inside the Pictures folder. This depends from phone to phone. Some phone makers put it inside the DCIM, some inside Pictures.
Step 7: If you are looking for photos downloaded from the web on your phone you will find them in Downloads folders. Similarly, photos received through Bluetooth will be in Bluetooth folder. Same is true for app specific photos. For example if you have a third-party photo editor in your phone, it may save edited photos in its own folder. So look for that too.
Step 8: Once you have your photos in your sight, select them, copy them and paste them into a folder on your computer.
Google Drive and Google Photos are your one-stop shop for backing up all your photos, accessing them via PC and downloading them all at the same time, any time. To do so:
Step 1: Make a Google account.
Step 2: Sign in to your Google account and manually download the Google Drive (and Google Photos) app from the Play Store if your phone doesn't have them. Mostly, you will have these apps pre-installed on your Android-based smartphone.
Step 3: Open Google Drive.
Step 4: You can manually upload your photos on Drive. You can choose whether or not you want a Wi-Fi-only process, which means files will be uploaded and updated only when you have a Wi-Fi connection. The option can be checked/altered from the settings menu of Google Drive.
Step 5: As for Google Photos, it automatically syncs your photos to the cloud. You can choose Wi-Fi-only option here as well.
Step 6: Google Drive and Google Photos are more or less the same thing and can be accessed through one app, which is Google Drive. Google Photos, however, gives you the option of light editing your photos as well.
Step 7: To transfer photos, open Google Drive (and Google Photos) on your PC, log in using the same ID you have on your phone and then manually download photos to your PC.
Third party apps
Alternatively you can also use Dropbox app for Android or Microsoft's One Drive app to sync and transfer your picture files. Both these apps are readily available to download and install from the Play Store.
Steps are similar to what you have on Google Drive only in this case you need separate Dropbox and One Drive accounts for access.
