So my father has used up storage on his phone with pictures of grand babies to the point where his Pixel 3 will no longer allow him to even use the camera to to lack of storage even after deleting unnecessary files taking up space of his phone. He doesn’t want to buy anything new or use something like the cloud. I have offered to transfer via usb all his pics to a 1Tb thumb drive that I bought. I already did this for my mom when she had the same problem. I have successfully transferred photos from all but two or three files. He organizes the pictures into labeled files in the gallery on his phone. Those labeled files transferred well and show up under “PICTURES” on his phone and the ones he hasn’t organized yet are still in “CAMERA/DCIM” I have tried changing usb settings and two different times I have “successfully” transferred 490+ Images along with a few videos in the “camera” file to the thumb drive. I follow proper procedure for ejecting mass storage device but when I go to check the thumb drive the next day...all those 490+ files are not there on the thumb drive where they should be. The file where they were copied is empty! How is this possible? What do I do?!
