    You need sync to be on to ensure your data is backed up in the cloud. No sync=No backup

    The sync is Google plus G+ wanting to back up your photos and vids to your G+ account. If you use a new camera app or download from a source that creates a new folder it will ask you then also. If you opt to sync it will automatically backup anytime there is new data in the folders you opt to backup.

    You can backup your photos manually by downloading a backup app or by going to the folder with content you wish to backup and selecting the three dots in the upper right corner and selecting share, this will allow you to pick multiple items, or you can open or long press one item and selecting share, pick the source you want to share to and backup is done. You can use the Pictures app to view all your files regardless of location.

    If your concern with sync is data usage, you can go into G+ and set it to only sync over WiFi.
