I have a Samsung S7 on the Koodo Network.

How do I know if all my Photos on my Device and my SD Card have been backed up properly? I have thousands of photos!

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you!

Setting go into your settings and going to storage if you go into storage and your settings is going to run you through a whole bunch of things are going to see SD on their click on your SD I'm going to tell you what's being downloaded onto your SD and if it says photos or files clip those files and see if any of them coincide with your pictures good luck man that's my best advice.

Check if your photos are backed up
  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Google Photos app .
  2. Sign in to your Google Account.
  3. Tap Photos .
  4. At the top, you'll see if your photos are backed up, or if it's still waiting to back up.

Hello Ted,

The photos on your SD card will never get erased what ever you do to your phone. But if you really want to make sure they are not erased, you can transfer them to your PC or HDD.
