Samsung is introducing a new feature that grants its users the capability to store and transfer an unrestricted volume of data for a brief period. Samsung has unveiled the global launch of ‘Temporary Cloud Backup,’ a service allowing Galaxy owners to securely store an unlimited amount of data in the cloud for up to 30 days, without any associated costs. However, there are a couple of important stipulations to consider. To begin with, while the overall storage capacity is boundless, individual files must not exceed 100GB in size.

This limitation is unlikely to pose a significant challenge for the majority of smartphone users. Another condition is the requirement to have a Wi-Fi connection when creating a backup. Lastly, this feature is exclusively available for users running One UI 6 or a more recent version, potentially posing an issue for some Galaxy owners who are hesitant to update their devices.
If you fulfil these criteria, you can leverage this feature to upload your data to Samsung’s servers, where it can be retained until you decide to restore it to your device. In case you approach the end of the 30-day time frame, Samsung will provide you with a reminder of your impending time limit. The company also offers 15 GB of complimentary storage for each user account, but this free storage is limited to content from native sources.
In contrast, Temporary Cloud Backup doesn’t have this restriction, as it supports third-party apps in addition to a wide range of content, including photos, videos, audio files, and documents. Furthermore, there is no need for a personal computer or external storage device to facilitate content transfers.
