    So I just got my 7 Plus and restored everything from my 6 Plus through iTunes. Everything transferred perfectly including my camera roll but it didn't transfer an album with over two thousand pics that I had.

    I do want to mention that this album was originally my camera roll but after I restored my 6 Plus back to stock when it was jail broken, for some reason my original camera roll with 2k pics converted into an album and a fresh camera roll took its place with 0 pics, it was weird but I got used to it since my pics were still on my phone. But now that I upgraded, that album didn't transfer over. Any reason why or what I should do?

    That's odd. Maybe try backing up your 6 and restore your 7 again?

    I guess I'll try it again, will it effect anything on my 7?

    Everything will be wiped out on your 7, but since you're backing up your 6 then you're good to go.

    I'll give it a go after work, hopefully it resolves it. Honestly, after I restored it, a message popped up stating that everything may not have transferred since I had the passcode on. I'm going to have it off to see if that works.

    Bummer! Looks like you'll need to manually transfer your pictures via iTunes or a third party application.

    How exactly do you do that via iTunes? I don't have a Mac, only PC. Still possible?

    I highly recommend you check out "Wondershare TunesGo Retro" it's an alternative to iTunes, it's not free but it's fast and reliable.
