I have had a FP2 for some time. It has slowed down of late, probably due to little memory left and apps becoming more demanding with each update. I wanted to dump most of my pictures and videos to the PC to improve performance. I am due an update or two, but I don’t want to update before I copy and erase the files, so that performance doesn’t decrease more (with the last update it did it considerably).
I have been shocked: I cannot access the phone via USB as I used to. I have the developer options activated and I have tried what is suggested here:
including installing a generic ADB driver on the computer, I have tried 2 computers (one with Windows 10 and one with Windows 7, the latter used to work for transfer) and two different cables (including one that I think it used to work).
The problem is that I never get the message on the status bar to change to transfer. The phone does charge, though.
Any ideas of what to do? I am truly desperate, I have a whole year of photos of my baby that I really want out, so a factory reset is not something I want to do.
