    Windows 10 Photos App


    Hey there,

    Been using windows photo app for transfering photos from iphone. So far so good.Been happy with it.
    At one point i had to reinstall a fresh windows. All done.
    Ive imported the previous folder with the saved photos to windows photo app but when im connecting my iphone to transfer the new photos i made its getting all as new. Not from the last transfer ive made before reinstalling windows.
    There is a way to do that and get only the new photos or fixing it somehow ?

    Thanks

    Hello keeda,

    Welcome to TenForums

    This is an unfortunate consequence of your new windows installation. The photo app does not know that you had already transferred most of your iPhone and therefore tries to transfer them all again. What you can do on the import screen is deselect all the photos and then just reselect the ones you want. They are usually grouped by date so you can select all photos from one date or month. This should allow you to just select the ones you want.

    You could make a suggestion to MS in feedback that they should be able to compare the filenames on your phone with the ones already stored to decide if they need to be transferred.
