Proton Drive user reviews :

It feels slow and sluggish at times, especially while loading thumbnails. Photos in nested folders don’t sync. Empty folders can’t be selected for photo sync (it requires atleast one photo in a folder). The folder listing UI can be a lot more compact. Right now, it requires a lot of scrolling when there are a huge number of folders.

  • Thank you for your feedback! Not being able to select folders with no photos is currently expected. You will be able to select which folders to sync from by navigating to Settings → Photo backup (the nested folders will appear separately). If you are experiencing any issues with this, contact us at:

Unlimited subscriber here. Overall, app performance has improved significantly since initial release. However, photo backup is unusable at present. Besides extreme sluggishness of the backup, the images can’t be moved to other Drive folders once they are backed up. I photo document different projects where I need to move the images to different folders shared with other principals for those projects. It’s better and faster to simply select the images and upload them directly to the folder.

  • Thank you for your feedback, John! We’ve passed your request for supporting the option to move your photos between the different sections to the team internally. Please contact us at: with more information on the performance issue you’ve experienced, so we can look into it.

I love the app, but I would love to see some additions. I’d like to see the ability for the app to recognize certain files are not in the drive, then sync them. Currently, if I’ve uploaded a photo before, I can no longer upload it in the future, even if its been deleted in the drive. I had issues syncing, and so I had to delete the drive content and start over, leaving me with the inability to backup my photos. Other additions ill submit via suggestion.

  • Thank you for your feedback! Our team is already looking into ways on how to improve this experience going forward. If you have any other suggestions on what we can do to improve our app, feel free to drop us a line at:
