How Much Storage Do I Need?

PhotoSphere supports any size SATA hard drive, including solid state drives. You can choose to supply your own drive or purchase your PhotoSphere with one of our drives. How much space do you need? It all depends on how many devices you want to back up and how much data is on them.

512GB
You can store over 174,000 photos at an average size of 3MB each on a 512GB drive. This size will be large enough for most families to store all their photos and videos.

2TB
If you plan on backing up all your computer data as well as photos from your phones and tablets, 2TB should be large enough for most families.

4TB
Larger families with multiple computers, phones, and tablets may want to future proof their backups with 4TB of data storage. 

8-12TB
If you have a media server, a professional photo studio, or you simply know you will need many TB of backup space, the larger capacities will be your best option.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any monthly fees?

No, PhotoSphere is your own hardware device. All the apps are free to use with PhotoSphere.

Does it have Wi-Fi?

No, we chose not to add Wi-Fi to PhotoSphere because it complicates the setup and is less reliable than a wired connection.

Isn't this just an external hard drive?

Not at all. PhotoSphere is more like a mini computer. It has a processor, ram, and file storage. It also has apps for iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac OS to automatically back up your photos and data and allow you to share with others.

What file formats does it support?

For phones and tablets, it supports all photo and video formats your phone supports. For computers, it supports all files. Just tell PhotoSphere to back up a folder or drive on your computer and it will back up all files.

Can this be used as a media server?

Yes, we have tested it with Plex and it works great.

What size do I need?

Everyone has different storage needs. Rather than determining how many photos each size stores, it's better to look at how many devices you need to back up and their capacities.

Phones can store from 128GB to 1TB of data. Multiply the number of phones you want to back up by the storage capacity to determine the size of PhotoSphere you need.

Computers have much larger storage capacities. You can look at how much space is used on your drives to determine your storage needs.

Add the space used on your computer(s) and the capacity of your phones, add some for room to grow, and you'll have a good idea what size you need.

Should I delete my photos from my phone after backing them up to PhotoSphere?

You should only delete the photos off your phone if you have more than one copy. PhotoSphere is a backup solution. It shouldn't contain the only copy of your photos. 

 

If you want to have a second copy of your photos, you can create a copy of your backup from your PhotoSphere to your computer or an external USB drive.
