How to stop the automatic backup?

I want to manually copy files from phone to iExpand. Is this possible and why do I even have to go to a Forum to find the answer to this one? I do not want the automated backup as it changes all the names of the files to gibberish... I want my files to keep the names I give them. 

Any insight would be greatly appreciated...

Re: How to stop the automatic backup?

to stop auto backup from the main menu of the iXpand Drive app select Backup and restore > Backup and restore photo library and toggle the auto backup to the left.

 

once that is done to manually transfer files from the main iXpand Drive app menu select Copy Files > Copy files from phone then select the files you want to transfer and select a destination.
