Pholio, a searchable hard drive that's like an offline Google Photos ...


Pholio is a new device that’s aiming to take on Google Photos with a hard drive for your photos that’s searchable by using keywords. The difference here is that Pholio keeps your data secure, and searchable while remaining offline and not relying on cloud services.

Once plugged into a device, Pholio will automatically search through it and back up all of your photos and videos. You are able to store either a high-resolution copy or a smaller optimized version (3-4 MB for a photo, or 720p resolution for a video). If you choose the optimized version, Pholio will still provide you with a link to find the original, higher resolution file quickly.
