The best way to back up Android files and folders is to use a cloud storage service. The best way to sync huge amounts of files from your PC to your phone. Nothing syncs, even though history logs state that files have been transferred. You still have to sync those to your Android one at a time using the built-in features of Google Drive. Good for work-related things, or attending events where you want it sorted into its own folder. Very useful to ensure files get backed up and to share photos to a tablet used as a photo frame.
