iPhone Not all my photo’s are copying over (long standing problem)

As of this post I’m using Apple’s latest iOS 9.2 and STILL after at least 6 years people are having the same problems simply copying all their photo’s to another device be it their PC / Mac / OneDrive or other Cloud based resource.

This has been, and still is a problem, with not only iTunes 12.3.2.35 but other iPhone communication and backup alternatives such as iMazing and Xilisoft’s iPhone Magic Platinum.

I found a major flaw in iMazing – one you really need to be aware of! I was copying photo’s from my iPhone 5S (IOS 9.2) iTunes says I have 1187 photos, my phone says in the Photo app that I have 1,175 photo’s. iMazing says I have only 1,051 photo’s and yet when I select ALL my photo’s and select Export iMazing goes through ‘all the motions’ but when I look in the folder on my PC I only have 361 photos!

This issue as far as I can see has been a problem going ALL the way back. MacRumours have posts that go back to 2010 where people still had this issue:

Another person says performing a ‘Factory Reset’ worked for him and setting his phone up as a ‘New Phone’ solved the problem.

If a security tool such as ZoneAlarm or any other Firewall or Antivirus is installed on your computer you should add iMazing, Apple Mobile Device Service (MobileDeviceService) and Bonjour Service, to your trust list or disable Applicatiob Control and restart your computer.

Solution

I hate to say it but there’s a simple solution to all these errors. Basically your system needs iTunes installed (you don’t have to use it!) you just have to install it. Remove any vestigial remnants of any old version of iTunes if you ever installed it and then download a fresh copy. Once installed you will need to go to iTunes > Preferences > Advanced and tick the ‘Share iTunes Library XML with other applications’

This way any third party app will be able to access your iTunes and iPhone folders and file system.

Before you go…

You might want to have a quick look at this post – It’s about how and why the iPhone does not back all it’s files up properly and the conditions why this happens: http://www.caspianit.co.uk/?p=4691&preview=true
