Seagate Mylio Review
Reclaim precious storage space on your mobile devices by storing originals on your Seagate drive and syncing optimized versions of your images to your devices.
Mylio is not a cloud service. We sync your devices directly over your local network creating a faster, safer experience.

Mylio can set up a Vault for backing up your files and library details. Original files are backed up automatically, preventing the loss that often comes when one of our devices or drives is damaged, lost or stolen. Use external drives, desktop computers or even cloud services like Amazon or Google Drive as a Vault to protect your files. Want more redundancy? Set up multiple Vaults and Mylio will keep them all synchronized and your files protected – even across multiple remote locations.

Seagate Backup Plus drives (available in 1TB, 2TB, 4TB and 5TB sizes) are ideal drives to use as Vaults with Mylio. Even better, these drives come with a free year of subscription to Mylio Create, offering a larger library size and more devices than the standard free version of Mylio. If you have purchased one of these drives and are looking to use Mylio for the first time, please look for and launch the “Start_Here” file that is pre-loaded on your Seagate Backup Plus drive.


Not seeing the Mylio offer? If the drive is not one of the models listed here on Seagate’s website, then it may not be eligible for a free year of Mylio Create.

Already a Mylio member? Follow the prompts of the “Start_Here” file and you will be prompted to sign in to your Mylio account after registering the drive with Seagate. Our support team will take it from there to assist you further.

If you are experiencing any issues with your Seagate drive that is not related to Mylio please contact Seagate Support.
