How long will it take to backup my collection?

That depends on the size of your collection and the speed of your internet connection.

  • It's usually best to let the initial sync run in the background and come back when it's done.
  • After the first backup is complete all future backups will be much faster as we only sync new photos. 

If your sync is taking a long time, you can check the upload speed of your internet connection using the SpeedTest.net website or the SpeedTest.net mobile app.
