Back up photos from any device to Google Photos in Original Quality (for free)

By now, it may be common knowledge that you can use an original c.2016 Google Pixel to back up your photos and videos to Google Photos in Original Quality for free. While there are several posts and tutorials on how to set this up, in practice I found that some notable points were missing from them, namely how to deal with deleting the photos from your primary device once they were backed up from the Pixel. I’m an Android user so this is written primarily from that perspective.

Here’s how to sync/delete the backed up photos from your primary device and the backup pixel [Android]:

1. Install Resilio Sync on both devices. On the Primary device, Create Folder and select your Camera folder, located in /DCIM/Camera

2. On backup Pixel, tap Scan QR and scan the QR code from the primary device Camera folder you just set up to link the two devices

3. On the Primary device, turn off Backup. Take a few photos with the primary device to test the sync.

4. On the backup Pixel, in the Resilo app, you should see the new photos being sync’d

5. Force quit and re-launch Google Photos on the backup Pixel to force Photos to see the new backup directory. Allow it to back up the new sync directory.

And finally, here’s how to deal with removing the backed up photos from your primary device:

6. After the photos are backed up, use a file explorer program such a FX File Explorer to delete the photos from the primary device’s /Camera directory. You can’y use the ‘Free Up Space’ function in google Photos as it doesn’t think you have backed them up. You can also individually select each image and choose ‘Delete from Device’, but that will be pretty time consuming and may be a little confusing. Using a File app is much quicker and easier. On iOS, I believe you can just delete them from the [Apple] Photos app directly

7. On the backup Pixel, you can use the ‘Free Up Space’ function to delete the images that have now been backed up.

Some notes and observations:

– You can quit Resilio Sync on the primary device and start it up as needed to sync to the backup pixel.

– Unless you are taking photos and need to back up constantly, you don’t need to have the backup Pixel plugged in and On at all times. Just boot it up and sync as needed.

– The backup Pixel doesn’t seem to display all of the available directories that contain media for some reason. I have also seen the sync directory disappear on occasion, but once I start a sync and then relaunch Google Photos, it seems to pick it back up again.

Clearing Sunroof Drains on 2008-2012 Toyota Highlander

Here’s a quick fix for the super-annoying problem of the Highlander’s sunroof drains clogging and flooding your footwells!

This assumes that you have already done your best to clear the drains from the sunroof drains itself. there are lots of videos and posts online on how to approach this. What I did was just open the sunroof and fish a long and thin wire cable through each drain hole. They are located in the corners of the sunroof, about the diameter of a pencil.

Now, what you want to do is get under the car and locate the drain exit holes. I used a thin bottle brush (like the kind used to clean those stainless steel straws). Just shove it in each hole and twirl it back and forth to clear the exit holes out. Hopefully, you will see a bunch of water come out if your drain is currently full of standing water.

There are 3 exit holes on each side. Here are the approximate locations. You are looking for an obvious little bump along the pinch welds:

Hopefully your problems will be solved once you have cleared the exit holes! Depending on how level your car is, you may not see water drain out of each hole.

Now, get out your wet-vac and suck up as much water as you can. Then remove the floor mats to help the floor dry out. I used a space heater on a low setting and checked on it throughout the day.
