First off, apologies if this is in the wrong place or if there is a super obvious answer that I'm missing.
My girlfriend wants to transfer all her photos and videos from her Samsung Galaxy S7 (Android 8.0.0) to her computer (Windows 10). The problem is that she has about 8.8GB of images, 7.7GB of videos saved to her phone, 7.7 GB of images and 15.8GB of videos saved to her SD card. Transferring them in one go would take over a day assuming something doesn't crash it half way through.

Is there a more efficient way to transfer large amounts of files from the phone to the PC?

So far we've only tried the standard the standard windows import/drag and drop with a USB cable. We've not tried transferring via the cloud because I figured it would still take way too long to upload and download the photos and we haven't tried Droid transfer because she doesn't have enough space left on her phone to download the companion app.

The S7 uses USB3. So using a computer with a USB3 port shouldn't take that long.

A card reader could be useful, but won't be any faster, plus you have to open the phone.
