Why You Need to Transfer Videos on LG
Most phones we use have no more than 32GB of storage. Plus, we tend to shoot videos and download TV series which take up too much space, and eventually the devices end up with no room for files of more importance. Also, data will always lose when your phone is crashed or gets stolen. So, a backup seems extremely meaningful for your cherished memories.
Where the Videos is Stored
Basiclly, it depends on which app you are using. If them were shot with built-in camera, the files are usually in DCIM/Camera/. And you might need to know whether it is in the internal or external storage, which is set as the default. (Go to "Setting">"Storage" to change the option, if you want.) And if they were some TV shows you downloaded, the locations are specified by the specific app you are using. Makes it hard to give a conclusion. But, the folders are, in most case, in the one which named after this application. Now that you know where they are, transfering the files will be easier. However, doing this manually is not so efficient. To get it done quickly, you can use tools below.
There are in total four of them, of which are LG PC Suite, Android Manager, Android Data Recovery and Mobile Transfer. Now, read on and decide which one to use. You will see a conclusion in the end.
Part 1: Backup LG Video to Computer with LG PC Suite

Two steps only will be taken with Android Data Recovery. This is a great helper for Android users. Even without a backup, it can retrieve files as long as they are not overwritten.

LG PC Suite, Android Manager, Android Data Recovery and Mobile Transfer are all useful software which you can use to backup videos from LG Optimus to computers. But, there are some differences about them. And I think that Android Manager works better if you are trying to backup a single types of data, because it is fast, allows users to preview details before backing them up. Select the one you like.
