The Device Details section displays the name of your device, the date it was added to Mylio Photos, and the Mylio Photos version number currently installed.

Click the magnifying glass icon next to Lost Originals to view the thumbnail or optimized image that does not have a corresponding original quality file in your Mylio Photos Library. Lost Originals are caused when the original version of a file is deleted outside of the Mylio Photos+ application before it was fully synced. This option will be hidden if your library does not contain Lost Originals.
Click the magnifying glass icon next to Unsupported Files to view all files stored on the selected device that Mylio Photos does not support. Typically, these are Raw files from an unsupported camera. This option will be hidden if your library does not contain Unsupported Files.
Click the magnifying glass icon next to Show Files to Sync to view any media currently waiting to sync to the selected device. The Show Files to Sync option will be hidden if your device is fully in sync.

Click on Device Storage to view and manage the available storage space on your device.
Click the Clear Cache button to remove unnecessary files and free up storage space on your device. This can be useful if your Device Sync Policy has changed, as there may be optimized or original quality images that are no longer needed.
- Host Details
For storage devices such as external drives, the Host Details section will specify which viewing device the storage device is connected to and the folder path to the Mylio folder on that device.
Vault Migration – The Vault Migration option will be visible if a Vault device is nearing capacity. Click the magnifying glass icon to get a capacity recommendation for a replacement Vault device and instructions for adding a new one.
Safe Delete guards against data loss if photos and video files are deleted outside of the Mylio Photos+ application and will attempt to restore the deleted file from another device that has an original quality version. This option is ON by default to protect you from erasing images from your Mylio Photos Library. However, you may want to turn it OFF if you plan to clean up unwanted files outside of Mylio Photos+ to reclaim disk space.
- Unregister Device
Clicking Unregister Device will completely remove the device from Mylio Photos+ and your Mylio Account. Do not choose this option unless you are sure.
