I'm currently using Moments, but I think I'll switch to DS File. Backups are faster on my NAS and it does not create a folder for each day as Moments does.

But you don't have a thumbnail image on DS File.

You DO have a thumbnail image, if, in DS File, you select to view by icons (in the upper right corner of the screen).
Unless maybe I'm misunderstanding your concern...

Sorry, I meant with image preview like in Moments. In DS File you only see this:

Yes, but then you don’t have live photo any more.

Anyway, now I know how it works.

I also disable keep original file name so photos don't get overwritten.
Agree. Like it more then Moments although I was using it for kore then a year. Really don’t like sorting photos in folders for each day. Viewing it on computer is very annoying.

You can set DS file so that the NAS retains both the HEIC (live photo) version AND the still version. That way, you can see the thumbnails, and also still have access to the live photos.

No, now I got it. Interesting. JPG and MOV files were created.

Need to think about it. Thanks.
