> You’ll still be able to use Backup and Sync on Windows or macOS to upload to both services
Wait, I'm confused. The only way I could find to do this before was to enable dumping my photos to Drive and then allow 'Backup and Sync' to sync that folder. I must be missing something.
I setup a Syncthing app on my phone and aimed it at my photos folder on my device. Once I connected it to the syncthing on my computer, it p2p securely syncs them over the internet, resulting in the same magic effect.
My old alternate to that is Onedrive which has a Camera Upload feature in its app that uploads your photos to a Photos folder in your onedrive which you can have synced to a local folder on your computer.
Same result either way, one is p2p and Open Source, the other is proprietary.
Unfortunately besides millions of lines of continuous
log_decorator.pyo:137 Entering in DoesAutoLaunch().
log_decorator.pyo:137 Returning from DoesAutoLaunch().
there is nothing indicating why the batch process starts and immediately quits and then restarts again.
At least I can delete the 240MB log file now while I search for another service that lets me backup my 75GBs of photos and displays them neatly on an iPad/iPhone.
I went ahead and wrote a simple app that reads iCloud metadata and uploads directly to Google Photos API. It synced everything in a day.
I dont understand how did they manage to mess this up so bad.
