The thing about your affordable Android tablet is that it serves a lot of purposes. You can get entertained with it, you can get news and information from it, you can use it to send emails and even SMS messages through some apps, and a whole lot more. The thing is, with all of features and functions you can use and do with your tablet, there is a limit to your tablet - in terms of storage, that is. Most Android tablets, even the most advanced ones, only have a 64 GB storage capacity. For users who have tons of music, video and games, a tablet gives them a lot of mobility, but as for storage, the tablet has a huge handicap.
So, how can you maximize the storage of your tablet? Here are some of your options:
- Utilize cloud drives
Using 4-port USB 3.0 docking station, you will be able to access the Internet with your android tablet. When you have access to the Internet, then accessing your cloud drive is no problem at all. Having an account in any of the cloud drives like Google Drive and Dropbox, among others, is a great way to have your files always with you without it congesting your limited tablet PC disk space. You can save your most used files in your cloud storage and just download them when you need them. Cloud drives are still largely safe and secure, so you can still use them without fearing for your files.
- Export photos to another device
You can install Bump, a photo-sharing device that lets you transfer or Bump photos you have taken and stored from your tablet PC to another gadget, like your desktop computer. This is a seamless method that lets you free up a lot of space on your tablet PC by moving photo files onto your computer.
- Sync files between the tablet PC and another gadget or computer
This will help you manage your files by selecting only those that will stay on the disk drive of your tablet PC. You will not have to worry about having no back-up file for those you accidentally deleted as there are copies left on another device. SkyDrive is one app that you can try for this.
- Physical flash drives, memory cards, and external devices
These drives keep your files safe and secure so you wonât have to keep all of them on your tablet. The thing with these drives is that they can go as huge as 2 and even 5 Terrabytes, which are just amazing for hoarders of files. Your only concern is that for external storage drives, you may need to get an USB On-the-Go cables so that you can connect your tablet to the drive. Otherwise, there are SD memory card slots for almost, if not all, affordable Android tablet options that do not require cables. You can just insert your SD (or microSD) card and save your files in that location. Surely, your tablet will read and recognize your SD card!
There you go! Free your tabletâs storage for urgent stuff and keep your files somewhere. All problems solved!
