Filegear Will Automatically Back Up All Your Media

Filegear Will Automatically Back Up All Your Media

Each of us creates a mountain of data every day. From social media snaps to office spreadsheets, these files fill our hard drives and cloud accounts. As the years go by, keeping track of your older media becomes increasingly difficult and expensive. Furthermore, you can end up giving away ownership of your data. The Filegear automatic file storage system offers the best of both worlds. This neat little desktop device can intelligently back up and organize all your media, and then provide instant online access.

– Desktop device provides secure local storage and syncs with your cloud storage accounts

– Intelligent software organizes incoming files and online access

– Works with all major desktop and mobile devices, plus photos from your camera

Backup Your Media

The idea of storing data on local drives isn’t new. In fact, we all did it before the Internet became so clever. But in comparison with platforms such as Google Drive and iCloud, offline storage is hopelessly complicated. Trying to manage your photos, music, videos, and work across multiple hard drives is the stuff of nightmares.

Or at least, that was before Filegear arrived. This neat little media manager can back up files from all your devices and keep everything organized.

You can plug in multiple drives for extra storage space, and the companion app lets you enjoy your media on the go. It even syncs with your online accounts, bringing everything under one roof.

Intelligent Storage

You can think of Filegear as your own, artificially intelligent secretary. Rather than filing pieces of paper, this little box works hard to keep your digital world organized.

To get started, you simply hook up a hard drive or two. Filegear has two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports for this very purpose. Should you need the space, it can actually handle up to 16TB of external storage.

In the long run, even this might not be enough for folks who enjoy shooting HD video. However, at least you are not paying monthly cloud storage fees.

Speaking of cloud storage, Filegear works seamlessly with most online storage platforms. This means you don’t have to go searching around for any particular file. Plus, it’s nice to have control over your files.

Simple Sync

The next step is to connect your devices through the Filegear app. Available on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android, the app automatically creates copies of every new file.

This works even when you are traveling the world — your snaps are still being backed up at home. When you get home, you can even back up photos from your DSLR. The Filegear base station can take both SD and CompactFlash memory cards.

Sorting and Sharing

The final step is organization. The Filegear device is equipped with a 1.44GHz Atom processor and 2GB of RAM. All of this computing muscle is devoted to file management.

The box sorts files into categories — photos, videos, music, etc. — and by many other filters. For instance, you can search images by date or location. The app can even create smart items, and put your files on the world map.

This clever library also offers instant access to your media. You can see photos, stream videos and enjoy ripped music. And with full end-to-end encryption, the security of your data is ensured.

“Filegear is an intelligent device that brings back old memories locked away in your offline hard drives. It connects your smart phones too, so you always have your latest photos synced and ready to share. And all those files you forgot you had in DropBox, Google Drive, and Amazon – well, they are synced as well, so no more rummaging around with different accounts and web apps to find your files.” — Filegear on Kickstarter
