Amazon Photos Not Backing Up?

In the Amazon forum, we find that some users have the same question when they use Amazon Photos – Amazon Photos Windows 10 desktop app has stopped uploading files.

I have been running the Windows app for a long time.  For the last 2-3 days, the app is not noticing that I have new and changed files - it always says backup complete - even if I force a "scan & upload now."  I have a good internet connection, plenty of storage remaining on my amazon cloud plahn, etc.

As usual, when you find Amazon Photos stopped backing up, you need to check if the Internet connection works well first. Most backup failure is caused by the poor Internet.

Besides, you can choose to restart the app or the browser if you are using a different platform.

Any Other Alternative?

Apart from using Amazon Photos for photo backup, you can also change to another backup program – MiniTool. You don’t need to rely on Internet and higher security can be ensured with MiniTool ShadowMaker. You can use this program to perform a NAS backup, local backup, or remote backup.
