How To Use Storage - HTC One Max
Learn how to use storage on your HTC One Max.
Types of storage
Want to know what types of storage you can use for your apps, data, and files? HTC One max has these storage types:
Phone storage : This storage combines both the internal storage, where apps, email, data, and text messages are stored, and the file storage, where photos, videos, and music files are kept.
Storage card : Use a storage card for storing more files. You can also set apps such as Camera to store directly to the card.
USB storage : When you plug in an external USB storage device (such as a USB flash drive or an SD card reader), you can view photos and videos stored on the device right from Gallery and play songs stored on the device in Music. You can also open PDFs and edit Office documents.
You need a special cable to connect HTC One max and a USB storage device. HTC One max supports USB storage devices (except portable hard drives) up to 64 GB.

Making more storage space
As you use HTC One max, you'll accumulate data and fill its storage capacity over time. Here are some tips on how to increase storage space.
Run the storage wizard
Free up space in the phone storage by uninstalling apps and deleting files you no longer want to keep. In Settings, tap Storage > Make more space.
Store files in Google Drive
Photos, email attachments, and other documents can be stored in Google Drive and accessed anywhere you are. You can set the Camera app to automatically upload photos to Google Drive.
Note: Google Drive is a third-party app and is not provided by or associated with HTC Corporation.
Manage photos and videos
Set the Camera app to automatically upload to a photo-sharing site or online storage. You can retrieve them from the photo-sharing site or online storage when needed.
Note: Using data services while uploading photos and videos may be costly. You may want to connect to Wi-Fi or disable auto upload of camera shots if you have a limited data plan.
After taking continuous camera shots, keep only the best shot and discard the rest.
After editing a photo or trimming a video, the original file is kept. You can delete original files or move them to online storage or to your computer.
If you are only sending videos through MMS, use a lower resolution. Highresolution video takes up more space. In Camera settings, tap Video Quality to change the resolution.
Back up apps data
Keep only the most recent data from apps on HTC One max. You can back up calendars, contacts, and bookmarks or export text messages, and personal dictionaries.
Disable some apps
Apps, even if not used often, may be running in the background and downloading data into the phone storage. If the app cannot be removed, you can disable it. In Settings, tap Apps and then swipe to All. Select the app you want to disable, and then tap Disable.
