Cloud storage has been a godsend for travelers and travel photographers in particular. So long as you’ve access to a solid web connection on the road, you never need worry about losing hundreds or thousands of your precious photos. But all those .RAW files and 13-megapixel .JPGs can eat through your allotted cloud storage limit in just a few travel days.

Which is where Transporter Sync comes in.
Transporter Sync turns any external USB drive into your own private cloud. The gist is simple: connect any USB drive to your home network, setup the Sync and you’ve just established your own secure, virtually unlimited storage cloud. The kicker: unlike web-based cloud storage services, there’s no monthly fee.
Other features include:
- Accessibility: Automatically and privately sync, access and share photo library, music and important documents between all your digital devices
- Security: All files are automatically protected, encrypted (256-bit AES) and reliably transferred to each device over the network
- Sharing: Privately share an unlimited amount of data with everyone, anytime, anywhere
- Peace-of-mind: Share and organize proprietary information and sensitive materials at a moment’s notice securely and confidentially
- Ease-of-use: Set up is easy, simply connect to your router and plug in any USB external drive, in a few minutes your Mac or Windows computers will automatically find your Transporter Sync
