  • Back up HTC One Mini to Google Drive, so you can easily restore your backup to another HTC phone next time.

  • Use the Google Drive app to manage your online storage.

Note: Uploading files requires you have the Drive app installed on HTC One Mini. If this app is not preloaded, you can download and install it from Google Play.

Activating your free Google Drive storage

Use up to 65GB of free Google Drive storage. In addition to the default storage that you get from Google Drive, HTC One Mini features an additional 50GB of online storage free for two years. Sign in to your Google Account on HTC One Mini (and not from your computer or other non-HTC phones) to claim this offer.

  • If you see the promotional Google Drive offer on the Feeds panel of your Home screen, just tap the tile. Or open the Drive app. (If this app is not preloaded on your phone, you can download it from Google Play.)

  • On the screen that shows the additional storage offer, tap Redeem. The additional storage will then be added to your account.

  • Follow the onscreen prompts to learn the things you can do with Google Drive.

Note:

  • If you don't see the screen for redeeming the offer, tap Menu > Product Tour in the Drive app to access it.

  • Additional terms and requirements may apply (including a subscription fee) after your two-year trial expires. For details, refer to the terms and conditions on the Google Drive support site (support.google.com/drive/?p=drive_offers_htc).

  • The Drive app is owned by Google and is not provided by or associated with HTC Corporation.

Checking your Google Drive storage space

In Settings, you can check your available Google Drive storage space. Go to Settings, and then tap Storage. Under Online storage, you'll see your Google Drive storage space. From time to time, check back on how much online storage space you still have before you upload more content.

Uploading your photos and videos to Google Drive

Use Gallery to upload your photos and videos to Google Drive and share the link.

Note: If you only have videos to share, make sure to upload them to a folder in Google Drive that also contains photos.

  • Open the Gallery app.

  • On the Gallery app's main screen, swipe to the Albums or Events tab.

  • Tap an album or event that contains the photos and videos you want to share.

  • Swipe to the All tab.

  • Tap Share icon.

  • If you see the HTC Share screen, tap No, thanks to close it.

  • From the selection menu, tap Drive.

  • Select the photos and videos you want to upload, and then tap Next.

  • Choose or create a folder in Google Drive.

  • Tap OK to upload.

When done, go to the All Apps screen, and then tap Drive to check if your uploads are in your Google Drive storage. You can then share the link to your Google Drive photos and videos.
