    Hello -


    I have the Google Pixel xl3 and when I link my phone to my laptop and it collects my unsaved photos and there are over 2000 of them. They aren't photos I took, but it has the blank photo icon and I think it is pics from applications I have been to. I just opened one and it is a blurry Up Arrow. I don't want to save those so I unselect all and then choose the new pics. But then these unwanted photos just continue to add up. Is there a way to not have Microsoft Photos gather these?

    :)

    New Memorex Mirror for Photos Simplifies Photo Backup

    Today’s consumers are looking for simple technology solutions that allow them to swiftly and safely back up their ever-growing digital photo collection. With a quick, one-time software installation, the Memorex Mirror for Photos external hard drive automatically backs up photos when connected to the computer without having to open numerous settings, dialogs or having to navigate multiple menus.

    Mirror for Photos is a fast, smart and maintenance-free method of backing up photos and takes the guesswork out of protecting one’s precious memories. Its built-in software automatically runs each time the device is connected to a PC or MAC, finds photos and backs them up. This eliminates the hassle of manually backing up photos each time they are uploaded on a computer. A unique monitoring feature detects when new photos are present and reminds the user to connect Mirror for Photos.
