Users of Xiaomi based Mi phones with MiUi are facing issues with their free Mi cloud storage running out. In a different post, I have already explained the steps to prevent your photos being uploaded on the Mi Cloud automatically. For users who already have a lot of photos on the Mi Cloud and want to download photos from Mi Cloud back to their phone or PC locally, follow these steps below.
How To Download Photos from Mi Cloud Using a Windows PC
This is the easiest way to download back all your photos back to your PC is using the Xiaomi companion app called “Mi Cloud Manager“. The app provides both “upload” and “download” options in case if you are looking to upload pictures from your PC. Here are the steps to download photos from Mi Cloud using a Windows 10 PC.
Step 2: Install the Mi Cloud Manager on your Windows PC.
Step 3: Launch and Run the Mi Cloud application and Sign-In with your Mi Cloud Credentials.
Note: The Sign-In authentication might send an OTP (One Time Password) to your registered mobile.
Step 4: Select Download and select the Albums to download locally. Multi-selection is also allowed.
Step 5: Select the download location and click on the download button.
Here are the screenshots for the steps mentioned above.
On your Android Phone, however, you will not be able to download the entire album in one go. You will need to select the photos as individual items and tab on the download button. This way, the PC app gets the upper hand, especially when you have a lot of photos/albums to download together.
Do let us know if there are any better alternative approached to this (If Any). Cheers!
