    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? I'd imagine it would be able to analyze the photos that are in both locations and only copy over the new photos.
