I still wrestle with how to backup photos from my iOS devices. In a recent post, I discussed how I use OneDrive for daily backup.

But sometimes you want to backup photos en masse.

The best thing I’ve found is Remote File Manager from Jane Zhang.

While Remote File Manager is not for the novice, it is an extraordinarily capable app.

I use it to copy photos from my iOS devices to my NAS storage, e.g. Drobo.

Click on the +.

And chose to create a new network connection.

Notice you can also specify various cloud services.

Select the NAS device.

We all know how valuable the copy-paste capability is. Even the iPhone added copy-paste in iOS 4.

On Windows, select an object, press CTRL+C, navigate to a new location, press CTRL+V and there it is!

Oh, you need to paste something you copied earlier? Tough. Go back and find it again (if it still exists), and CTRL+C it again.

Until now.

Recent updates to Windows 10 have added a built-in clipboard history.

Go to Windows 10’s Settings > System > Clipboard to enable clipboard history.

Then when you want to paste next time, press Windows Key+V.

Here’s what you’ll see.
