    The status just says "Backing up thumbnails". There are around 12,000 photos that I need to backup but I don't have any sight on how much progress has been made or how many photos are left.

    If you open the google photos app the circle around your avatar on the top right acts like a status bar where it grows from 12 oclock clockwise as photos are backed up. I'm not sure if it will be noticable across 12k photos, but I see it when I snap a dozen or so.

    12000 photos?
    That's going to take some time to process.
    Give it a day or two

    Would I just be better off uploading them to Google Photos from PC? I've already transferred them locally from phone to PC. The only problem with that is handling the duplicates (photos uploaded from PC vs photos which were already uploaded from the phone)
