I have a iXpand 128GB and transferred over a large amount of photos/videos over to it from my iPhone 7plus, somewhere around 21,000 files. When I plugged the iXpand into my laptop to try and trasfer the files over I see files named “IMG_0001~photo” in both HEIC and JPG formats going all the way up to “IMG_9999~photo” but also there are the occasional times where there is “IMG_3667~photo(1)” Some problems I’m having here:
i) obviously the number of files I had exceeded the 9999 mark, so the either my iPhone or the iXpand resorted to adding a (1) to the end of the file names to try and compensate however it seems randomly done in a way that doesn’t make any sense as the photo most recent taken picture back-up was named: “IMG_6792~photo” so sorting through my pictures is a mess.
ii) there are most definitely pictures taken after the picture “IMG_6792~photo” that were missed. Makes me concerened if any other files are missing?
iii) it was nice that some of the pictures got converted to .jpg after plugging in the iXpand to my Windows laptop, but why weren’t all of them converted? Again it’s just a mess right now of HEIC’s and jpg’s, where onlysome HEIC’s were converted, others werent’
Has anyone else had any of these issues after transferring large amounts of files at once? Is there a better way of doing this? From what I remember it’s not like I can indicate how many files to move at a certain time, I’d have to individually pick what to back-up to the iXpand if i’m being selective and it just isn’t reasonable to do around 20,000 taps of pictures…
Would appreciate the help!!
