Is the only way to preserve the iPhone photo albums to copy them over to the iXpand album by album?
I copied all 2017 photos over onto the iXpand and deleted them off the iPhone (although they are all still in the “Recently Deleted” album on the iPhone).
But I wanted to keep them organized by the same albums.
I guess I thought the photos would still display in the iPhone photos app in their native albums but would be stored on the iXpand rather than in the iPhone. I didn’t realize that the iXpand would really act more like a PC flash drive.
