When I insert my SD card into my laptop after shooting photos and videos, two folders show up: DCIM and MISC. I have heard people say you need to copy everything over when transferring, but the MISC folder is completely empty...
I have transferred files a few different ways in the past:
- Copying DCIM and MISC over.
- Copying just the DCIM folder over.
- Copying just the .CR2, .JPEG, and .MOV files over.
Each of these ways seems to have worked out the same way for me when editing, so I'm just trying to figure out why people say you should transfer all the folders over. Does it help for certain editing software? Are the folders just important for the camera? Any knowledge would be helpful. I'm just trying to make sense of it all.
