Use AirDroid to backup photos from your phone to your PC

Smartphone cameras are everywhere. Everyday we take a large number of photos. In the long run, these photos take up a large portion of the device’s storage, which makes the life harder for users by forcing them to delete some pictures in order to make space for new ones. But it’s a losing battle, because after a while you will face the same dilemma again.

There are a number of solutions available. One common method is to backup your photos to cloud. While it is a good solution, there are a couple of downsides to it. One downside is that you have to pay money to buy the cloud storage. Yes, you get few GBs for free but you run out of it pretty soon and then you have to pay money to get more storage.

Another downside is privacy. We have seen it many times in past different cloud service providers getting their data compromised and sensitive information leaked out. Are you really willing to have your pictures leaked out on the internet?

This is where AirDroid comes in the picture.

AirDroid is a popular app to manage Android devices. They have released a new feature called Backup, which, as the name suggests, can be used to backup photos directly from an Android device to a PC or Mac. The data transfer is done through wireless network, and there is no cloud storage involved in between. So you don’t have to pay anything to anyone.

It’s a neat feature and I highly recommend using it to manage your photos, as well as your device’s storage.
