Have you ever lost your phone or had it stolen? What was on your phone that you'll never get back? Apps, sure, but those are backed up in your account usually. What about your photos? You'll never see them again. Don't let that happen.

This course will show you how simple it is to get your phone setup with the best protection on the planet for free.

Here's what you get from this course:

  • How to use Amazon and Microsoft's stable infrastructure to keep your media safe
  • How to use online cloud sync services
  • Setup sync on Windows, Mac, and Linux computers
  • Full step by step instructions for Dropbox and OneDrive
  • Sync options for iPhone and Android phones (OneDrive works with Windows Phone too)
  • How to configure for wifi only/unlimited data plans to disable sync over your cellular data
  • How to get 100 GB Free space of online storage space from Microsoft for one year
  • How to get another 15GB free space on OneDrive for life, (total of 130GB max)
  • How to free up space on your iPhone so it is usable again.

Americans lose their phone about one a year, or get it stolen. This does not include getting broken or upgraded. Phones are lost or stolen every hour in the US as well. It is a problem in many countries all over the world.

I have many friends and family members who have lost their phones or broken them, so I wanted to create a simple quick course to help at least save the photos and videos that you can never get back.

Another big issue I've seen with iPhones especially is that the phone gets full and makes you have to delete photos to continue using it. This course shows you how to never have that issue again.

Final Thoughts


Kara18 November 2019

A little too basic and title is misleading. Unfortunately a couple days too late to refund or I would. I have these cloud drives already but they aren't syncing properly and I thought this might show me more detail on how to use them

This course was exactly what I needed to get comfortable with linking my Android phone and my iPad Air 2 to cloud services. I was particularly nervous about accidentally losing my photos if I deleted them to gain more space. Ryan was very engaging, and for someone with such an advanced technical background he explained things very clearly, Especially helpful to me was the OneDrive information, because I do have Office 365 and did not realize that I could use OneDrive instead of my limited free DropBox account to automatically upload my photos! Thanks, Ryan!!!!

Very much liked the content. The instructor was interesting and helpful. Good course overall. Thank you!

This course is a basic overview of the features in Dropbox and OneDrive to sync your photos from your mobile device. That said, I would be a bit reluctant to only rely on online cloud services, especially when family photo collections grow considerably in size. Beware that the "100 GB" free is a very particular offer, not available everywhere and temporary! So you'll need another solution or pay for it, after it expires. Tip: there are screen capture programs to get the iPhone screen recorded. Video is a bit shaky for these parts.
