What to do if your Lyve Drive is out of storage

You’ve got a lot of photos, right? If your Lyve Drive runs out of storage space, don’t panic! There are ways that you can add more space and still protect your memories.
Here are two options for you:
  1. Add a Lyve Home to your account: If your Lyve library is less than 2TB in total size, adding a Lyve Home will create a full backup of all of your photos and videos, and any additional space will be left over to use as storage for any additional photos or videos you add to Lyve. 2TB is a TON of space. Depending on the size of your Lyve library, you may never need to add more space. Plus, Lyve Home is an always-on, always-connected device, so you’ll have peace of mind knowing that it’s copying and protecting your full-resolution memories at all times. With the combo of Lyve Home and Lyve Drive, all of your previous memories will be backed up to Lyve Home, which is always available & always on - plus your Lyve Drive will then have a secondary (redundant) copy of some of your photos and videos. Learn more about Lyve Home here.
  2. Add a second Lyve Drive to your account: You can always a second Lyve Drive to your account as well. It’s best to add drives that are larger in size than the one that has run out of storage space. Just like with the first option above, adding another (larger) Lyve Drive will create a full backup of all of your photos and videos, and any extra space will be used as storage for any additional photos or videos you add to Lyve. If the second Lyve Drive is smaller than your your library size, only a partial copy of your photos and videos are created, so we wouldn’t recommend that.
