Write Rights For Photo Backup

Recommended Posts

It was great before the latest update which now only give read rights for the DCIM folder on my Android phone. I prefer to manage my photo folder using BT Sync from my computer. Saves me the trouble of deleting backed up photos from the phone manually.

matchi,

as was mentioned in the quoted topic - this is by design that files deleted on mobiles are not deleted on backup targets. 

One day it used to be the other way - files deleted on mobiles did get deleted on backup targets. After receiving *multiple* requests to change it, it's now changed and remains the way it is. The current way it works allows safe backup of photos and clearing phone's storage at the same time.

Thanks for your reply Helen, I understand now.

 

Edit: It may be a cool feature to select this behaviour as an option in the sync client....;-)
