Designating an external hard drive as a Vault is a great way to consolidate your photo and video collection into one central location. However, having a single Vault device does not automatically create a backup copy of your Originals. Learn more about the importance of a Vault.
To back up and better protect your files, we recommend users have at least two (2) Vault devices, meaning two full copies of their original photos and videos. A second copy protects you from hardware failure or catastrophic loss, such as theft.
