Hi, I'm tackling the task of organizing, backing up, and automating the two former tasks for future file creations across my PC, my Nexus 6P, my wife's ZTE 817, a laptop will be added when she starts school, my daughter's two iDevices, and my son's Galaxy Tab 3 Lite.)
Where I'm at now.
-Main Google account (for Photos and Drive- 100GB upgrade, a catch-all of sorts), also use this account for Play Store purchases.
-Family Memory Box Google account (Photos for selective backup of memory box type photos)
-DropBox account (free- 2GB), empty at present
-PoGo Plug router attachment w/ a year of premium service paid for. Just purchased and set up to be informed they are shutting down their cloud service. However I am still able to set folders on my pc as accessible to my cloud and access said files through a mobile broweser (NOT on my pogoplug mobile app, however).
-a PC with 500GB of storage
-a subscription to Amazon Music Cloud Unlimited
-Synchronize Ultimate Pro from Play Store
+Thousands of pictures to organize and backup, 100s of family videos
+825 music files to convert to either .mps or .m4a for Amazon MC compatibility (inquired about in a different post, included here for totality).
+minimal text documents and/or .pdfs
+haven't even begun to tackle incorporating the iDevices into any of this
-To have at least one hardware backup and two cloud backups for a majority of the photos and videos
-Automated backup of future photos, videos, and documents across PC, android, AND iDevices
-Optimize current folder hierarchy and organization (tips much needed)
-iDevice cross-platform compatibility and backup and migration
-The PogoPlug was not what I hoped, need another solution for remote mobile-to-pc auto back up and selective pc-to-mobile backup
-I am happy with the Amazon music cloud service for my music.
-I would like a more long-standing and proven service for my mobile-to-pc solution because the pogoplug service and mobile seems very unreliable, although sound in ideology.
-I am set on using Google Drive and Photos as my main source of cloud solution.
-Is DropBox a good choice for my second cloud backup, or are there better options
-I need any tips and tricks that come to mind to help me organize all this into an optimized folder tree.
