Types of storage

Want to know what types of storage you can use for your apps, data, and files?

HTC One 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.

If you are running out of phone storage, see Making more storage space for some tips on how to free up space.

Storage card

Use a storage card for storing more files. You can also set some apps to store data or files 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 and a USB storage device. HTC One supports USB storage devices (except portable hard drives) up to 64 GB.

Important:
  • Moving apps to the storage card doesn't back up the apps. If you do a factory reset, your phone loses the apps. You'll need to reinstall them.
  • When you remove the storage card and insert it in another phone, the apps on the storage card won't be installed automatically to the other phone. You'll need to reinstall them.
