Backup iPhone Photos & Videos to Shared Folder

Postby newtobt » Sun Oct 08, 2017 1:32 am

Hi Everyone,

I have been crawling the forum for almost 2 hours but couldn't find an solution.

What I want is to backup all photos and videos from my iphone to my NAS, but instead of to the "photo" folder I want it to be backup to a shared folder which has been set straightly to be accessible by me only (and the admin of course). We need this so several persons sharing the NAS can backup and access to their own pictures only.

Tried DS Photo, can't change the permission of the folder (greyed out)
Tried DS Cloud, couldn't find the pictures and videos location to link

Would appreciate very much for your help.

Use Photosync on your Iphone.
This is in my opinion the best app to sync your photo’s and videos to any Nas device, another apple device, pc or cloud services. I use the ftp function from the app, works flawless

PhotoSync – transfer photos van touchbyte GmbH ... 50124?mt=8
