Google Photos Sync Auto Backup Android application
As an alternative, Google provides a solution for disabling auto-sync by directing users to switch to the Backup application and Sync the Windows version, meaning that if the user wants to keep backing up photo and video documents it still can but must copy it by uploading it from a computer or laptop drive.
For those of you who are users of the Google Photos app but don't receive the notification email notification above can download the Backup and Sync Windows application through the following link DownloadBackup&Sinc Google Foto for Windows.
After you download it, run the Backup & amp; Syc.Exe in Windows conditions connected to the internet network, then enter your e-mail address and password for your Google Account.
The setup/login process takes a long time, if after waiting a few minutes login process does not go over, disconnect/disconnect the internet network then close the application then try to run the Backup application again and Sync From Google through the StartWindows menu.
After the Application Window Backup and Sync From Google re-connect the internet network and click Get Started.
Select Back Up Photo and Videos if you only want to back up photo and video files, but if you want to backup all files including that outside of photos and videos, select the Back up all file types menu then click NEXT.

Backup and Sync From Google application can also be accessed through the Icon Tray, although the close window on the desktop screen of the application still runs.
If you want to back up photos or videos from your internal cellphone, you can do it by connecting your cellphone to a computer or laptop USB cable, automatically when the phone's internal memory is connected to the Windows system Backup and Sync From Google will detect it.
This can also be applied to External Memory Cards, External Flasdisk or OTG, and Digital Camera Memory Cards. You just need to connect external memory via a USB Computer or Laptop. in the condition of a computer or laptop connected to the internet network, then automatically Backup and Sync From Google will detect the device and a backup confirmation notification will appear on the right desktop screen.

conclusion: Deactivating the Auto Sync and Backup feature of the Google Photos application for Android users is bad news where not all android mobile users have a computer or laptop device. besides the backup process and Syckron which must go through a Windows device, of course, it will also be a little inconvenient, as usual, to directly auto backup photos and videos when the mobile phone is connected to the internet network. actually, this is unfortunate, but this is a decision and policy from Google that must be accepted by users of the Google Photos application.
