    best way of backing up iphone media to local PC

    I'm tired of manually copying files off my iphone via windows explorer. Is there a way to basically sync photos and videos that are currently on your iphone to a specified PC directory?

    this is a general server we use for various stuff... scheduled .net scripts, sql server database, IIS intranet webservices. Would it be bad practice to install office on this server just as a way to conveniently open up word docs on it? Thanks
