If you’re like me, you have tons of photos - and storing them without compromising photo quality can take up a lot of space! That’s why if you have Amazon Prime, you should definitely be making use of Amazon Cloud Drive’s free unlimited photo storage. (Or of course if you have a lot of stuff in general, Amazon has a new Unlimited Everything subscription available too.)
But having unlimited cloud storage doesn't mean your computer has unlimited space. In fact, syncing "unlimited" (or just a lot of) cloud storage can really slow your computer down by taking up all your disk space. That's where odrive comes in - it's the only way to truly maximize and experience unlimited cloud storage right on my desktop!
Link Amazon Cloud Drive to odrive
To start, just download the odrive sync client, login to odrive using your Amazon Account, and you are ready to go. You’ll automatically get access to all the photos from your Kindle or Fire phone/tablet via odrive. Amazon lets you store photos at their original size, without any compression resulting in loss of quality. That means if you have tons of high quality photos stored on your external hard drive or USB sticks, now it's the time to back them up into Amazon Cloud Drive!
Free up disk space by unsyncing files you don't need
Now that you're making use of your unlimited photo storage, your hard drive is probably feeling the weight of all those vacations you documented with your DSLR. odrive lets you unsync individual photos or whole albums at once so they’re no longer on your computer, but are safely stored in the cloud.
Using odrive’s unique Progressive Sync technology, you can even see a virtual representation of your folders and files in the cloud, so you can quickly browse through your photos without having to download all of them locally.
Easily backup photos from all your other apps too!
Already have photos elsewhere online? Link them to odrive too! Naturally, for photos this includes Facebook and Instagram. Does your mom email you lots of photos? Link your Gmail account to odrive and instantly get all your attachments! Now you can easily copy and paste all your photos from those apps into Amazon Cloud Drive to back up everything.
Get both unlimited photo storage and powerful file management at your command today. And if there are any other cloud photo services you rely on, let us know. That may just be the next new service you can link to with odrive!
