I have a Samsung Galaxy s6 the edge. I had about 400 or so photos in my favourites folder and saved them into an album as i know favourites don't show up on the smartswitch back up list of photo albums you've created. So I moved and saved these favourites into a separate album. Then i deleted my favourites and the newly created album also disappeared.
Q1) Does anyone know why when you've gone to the trouble of 'hearting/liking' your favourite photos, that this effort is wasted when you do a back up and the favourites just remain amongst the other bulk of photos and do not appear or save as a 'favourites folder' on your back up photos list?
Q2) After moving my favourites into an album and then deleting my 'favourites', this newly created album disappeared, so where has my 'favourites album' gone?
