Inquiry to Copying Data to PC Manually through My Computer and Retain GPS data?

Dear ALL,

 

I am new to GoPro Hero 7, please kindly help.

 

Since I am away for holiday with sports acitivity everyday, after calling a day I would plan to backup my video from SD card manually through "My Computer" to Mobile HDD.

 

If I backup all videos to Mobile HDD, and after I go home to use Quik app, would I be able to import from my mobile HDD and the GPS data are all there?

 

The reason why I ask this question because beforehand I was using rival So__ actioncam and if you *do not import* the videos through "official apps" and just "copy and paste" from My Computer, the GPS data would be gone and cannot import.

 

I just want to make sure would GoPro doesnt have this issue?

 

Thank you

Hi @sweetstorm52508

 

The GPS data should still be read.

After saving the files make sure to add it as a media folder on Quik for Desktop.

Check out  How to Add Media Folders in Quik for desktop

 

Thanks!
