Wait, what? Plex Camera Upload doesn’t backup DNG or video files!!!

I must admit that I haven’t really looked too deeply at what Plex’s Camera Upload feature does. Primarily using it as a local backup, well that was the intent anyway, because this morning I discovered that it doesn’t actually backup the DNG (RAW photos) or videos that I take with the phone. Very disappointing…

There is a feature request to support this (disappointingly created almost 4 years ago), with almost no votes. I guess I can understand the lack of RAW (a little maybe), but video? C’mon Plex, storage is cheap let’s get this done.

Until they do (not holding my breath), what options other options are there for set-it-and-forget-it backup for photos/videos on mobile devices (ideally Android and iOS)? Let me know.
