I want to back up all the files on my LG G2's internal storage.
I used to do this on my old phones by plugging in usb and the Sd card would be mounted as a Mass Storage device that I could copy and paste from.

The LG G2 only connects to the computer using MTP (Media Sync).
When I went to copy from the MTP storage, I get to stare at "Calculating the time required to copy the files."
Its been doing this for about an hour.

How can I get my Internal Storage to my computers Hard Drive?

The MTP protocol is a bit buggy and what you've described isn't uncommon. A lot of the folders on the internal storage are actually unnecessary so best suggestion is to only backup what you truly need (personal files, photos, music, 'Android folder', etc) which has a higher chance of working than copying absolutely everything.

Your best bet is to grab a OTG cable and a large USB drive and transfer the contents using a file explorer app like ES file explorer. That has always given me the best and quickest results.
