Excellent - but need help troubleshooting!

I bought three copies of this - for mine, my wife’s and my daughters phones. We take most of our pictures now with our phones. The initial backup worked perfect with my phone and my wife’s - and my daughter got about 1/3 way through - and it gives an error that says invalid path. How do I troubleshoot this?! Hoping the developer sees this - the blogspot website has no “contact me” button.

Why strip the metadata?

UPDATE: So I got a notice from the developer saying that the metadata are now preserved during the transfer of photos from the phone to the NAS. Yay!, I thought. Unfortunately, after a few tests, I see that some metadata are preserved, but not all. Most notably, the location data is NOT preserved. PLEASE DEVELOPER, can you preserve ALL metadata?

Also, I also noticed that the wireless transfer of files resulted in smaller file sizes using this app compared to the same photos that I uploaded to the NAS via lighting cable. Is the app maintaining the full resolution of the photos as it claims? I don’t know.

Previous review:

I’ve done my array of tests and this is a great app, BUT IT LACKS AN ESSENTIAL FEATURE. The app appears to indeed transfer full resolution of pictures and videos BUT IT DOES NOT TRANSFER THE METADATA. This makes the app unusable to me. So please, include the ability to transfer ALL metadata with the full resolution pictures and videos! Thank you in advance.

Developer Response ,

We didn't find the losing metadata problem after extensively tested latest update of the app. Please contact us via Support email of the app if you're still having problem.
Thank you for your feedback.
