I recently tried to move my travel photos from iphone 11 to my Laptop (Windows 10)
Like always, I plugged in my iphone to my Laptop and straight away "cut" the photos and "paste" to a folder in my laptop. I left it for a few minutes until the transfer loading screen disappear. No error message or anything, so I assume the photos were successfully "cut"and "paste" to my laptop.
When I open the folder in my laptop, I saw a lot of photos & Videos icon, but when I clicked them, I was unable to open them.
And when I checked my phone, the photos are gone.
(i normally use this method to move my photos from iphone and there's no problem. Never use itunes to import my photos)
