how to save or upload all my photos at once so i can remove them from my laptop but not lose them

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

 I am letting my son take over my laptop it is a HP pavilion using windows 10 64. I have many pictures and music that I would like to either upload to my google drive or get them somewhere safe so that I can free up space and make it more his computer. he has no room to install the things he is wanting to due to the lack of space.

Hi

I would consider moving them all to a single folder if possible.

X:\>move /?
Moves files and renames files and directories.

To move one or more files:
MOVE [/Y | /-Y] [drive:][path]filename1[,...] destination

To rename a directory:
MOVE [/Y | /-Y] [drive:][path]dirname1 dirname2

[drive:][path]filename1 Specifies the location and name of the file
or files you want to move.
destination Specifies the new location of the file. Destination
can consist of a drive letter and colon, a
directory name, or a combination. If you are moving
only one file, you can also include a filename if
you want to rename the file when you move it.
[drive:][path]dirname1 Specifies the directory you want to rename.
dirname2 Specifies the new name of the directory.

/Y Suppresses prompting to confirm you want to
overwrite an existing destination file.
/-Y Causes prompting to confirm you want to overwrite
an existing destination file.

The switch /Y may be present in the COPYCMD environment variable.
This may be overridden with /-Y on the command line. Default is
to prompt on overwrites unless MOVE command is being executed from
within a batch script.

X:\>move c:\sp52604\*.exe x:\sp52604
c:\sp52604\1425F37.exe
c:\sp52604\FlsHook.exe
c:\sp52604\FWUpdLcl.exe
c:\sp52604\InsydeFlash.exe
c:\sp52604\InsydeFlashx64.exe
c:\sp52604\wscript.exe
6 file(s) moved.


Volume in drive X is Recovery
Volume Serial Number is CEB2-4012

Directory of X:\sp52604

13/01/2020 10:09 <DIR> .
13/01/2020 10:09 <DIR> ..
07/04/2011 14:57 6,670,121 1425F37.exe
24/09/2010 09:03 241,664 FlsHook.exe
26/01/2010 06:04 944,664 FWUpdLcl.exe
27/09/2010 10:58 774,144 InsydeFlash.exe
27/09/2010 10:58 1,041,920 InsydeFlashx64.exe
09/08/2004 13:27 114,688 wscript.exe

You would perhaps need *.jpg or *.png or *.mp4  or whatever.  You can of course compress the resulting folder to save space, either for the upload or just local storage.
