Good day all,

I ask this question, because I may need a change in my approach to backing up cell phone photos and videos. I lost my cell phone (Galaxy Note9) this past Saturday at a clothing store's restroom this past Saturday. First time I have ever lost a cellphone. I don't know my Samsung account since I have never used it. I have insurance so I paid the deductible and will be receiving the replacement phone today.

The gist of my angst is the fact that the few meaningful photos and videos that I've taken (thru whatever phone I had at the time) are gone. I'm the geezer that doesn't use cloud services for backups because of privacy breaches. I am contemplating using cloud services, or maybe backing up certain files periodically on my pc. How do you backup your files taken from your phone?

I plug in and backup to my Mac every month or so .

Any notable images taken on my phone are generally shared with family or friends there and then by email or picture message .
