  1. Inability to upload photos/videos automatically.
  2. File upload failure.
  3. An unknown error occurred.
  • The minimum requirements are as follows:

    • iOS:
      iOS 12 or higher
    • Android:
      Android 8 or higher
  • The ASUS WebStorage Mobile App (iOS) does not support background uploads. It is necessary to keep the screen of your iPhone/iPad awake and active while uploading.

  • If using a cellular network on your device, ensure that the signal strength is full. If the signal is weak, try moving to a different location or switching to a Wi-Fi network. If using a Wi-Fi network, make sure the network is connected.

  • Verify if the latest version of the ASUS WebStorage mobile app has been installed by visiting Google Play or App Store.

  • Confirm that your Camera Upload settings are as expected:

    • To back up all photos and videos on your device, select the "Backup all photos" option and turn on the "Include videos" toggle in the "Backup information" section.

    • To upload photos automatically even when using a cellular network, make sure the "Use cellular data for backup when there is no Wi-Fi" toggle is turned on in the "Backup options" section.







  • If the issue persists, try reinstalling the app by following these steps:

    1. Uninstall the app
    2. Install the latest version of the ASUS WebStorage App from Google Play or App Store.
    3. Restart your device
