I have been working with Tech Support, but hoping I can get a clearer understanding of what the Mylio folder is for, vs. a Vault on an external drive.
Windows 10 and Android user. I have images stored all over my Windows hard drive. I’ve worked hard to de-duplicate, and have mostly succeeded, although there’s still quite a mess in my “Pictures” folder. Because my drive is partitioned, I needed to use D: as the place Mylio uses. I imported my Pictures folder into Mylio, and named the Mylio folder “PicturesCopy”. Both are stored on the D: drive. I looked inside the Mylio folder, and it appears to have copied all my files, and I now have 2 sets of the same photos, on my hard drive. What’s the point of that? In Mylio, I see both folders, but I’m terrified to delete one, for fear of losing photos. The two folders have different number of images!
I don’t know why I’m seeing tons of duplicates on Mylio, but suspect that it’s because I’m seeing both my Pictures folder and the Mylio\PicturesCopy folder at the same time?
So, I set up a Vault on my External hard drive, F:. It’s busy copying as I type. I assume I will now have 3 copies of my photos? What happens when I add my Android phone photos, and there are duplicates of files already on my Hard Drive?
I just don’t understand how the Import process is supposed to work, because the result I’m getting doesn’t make sense to me. I need a diagram or chart or easy to follow instructional video or help files. Unfortunately, I don’t find the Tutorials easy to follow, and they don’t cover the very most basic installation process.
