How can I back up my photos and keep the EXIF data?

Episode 1361 (29:13)

Robert from Orange County, CA
Google Photos

When Robert backs up his photos to Google Drive, it seems to strip out the GPS location EXIF data. Leo says that Google Drive won't show the EXIF data, but it is still there. He just searched his own photos and discovered it. It's probably a display settings issue. He also sees the EXIF data available in Google Photos. Google probably wants him to upload to Google Photos instead of Drive.

Robert should check out this tech note on how Google Drive works with Google Photos.

He can also separate his albums from personal and business photos by dividing them up and then making his personal albums private.
