Not Dependable 1/5
I didn’t get this device to fiddle with it to get it to work. Now my iPhone doesn’t detect it and when it does, well it goes back to telling me to plug the device in when it is already connected. This is crap.
Something Fishy 2/5
Why is this app making backups of all my files I put on the flash drive? The more I install on the flash drive the larger and more space the app takes up. This should only be the case on the flash drive itself and not the app. Is this app secretly copying all my files and storing them into the app? How can you disable this feature because the only space being taken up should be on my flash drive and not my iOS device.
It’s Perfect! 5/5
The interface is perfect! Just awesome!

Super easy to use, great to be able to backup my photos.
My IXPAND Drive 5/5
I’ve been using my drives for more than 2years to transfer files between my laptops and my iPads without any problems.
Has been working fine for about 10 months.
Stopped working or syncing with the USB.
Now, sure Apple released an update for my XR and watch. I’ve done updates before in the past and didn’t effect the usb.
I’ve updated my phone again & reinstalled the app, powered off the phone. Still not reading the usb.
It recognizes it being plugged in. But, the app goes into the please plug in usb after loading.
It’s not worn or damaged but, i surely use it!
Hopefully it’s an update issue on the app end.
At first I was a little bit confused about the interface on first set up, it didn’t recognized my iphone. I redownloaded the app and what you have to do if at first set up you have to allow the app to access your photo library. But when I figured it out everything’s was so smooth copying back and forth to iphone and my pc.
Great product! 5/5
I love backing up all of my files onto this app.

I absolutely rely on this product and it’s great cause it delivers quick work of pictures and videos I’ve captured skateboarding and I’m able to send to people whom I deal with in skateboarding business
Eliminar dependencia de iXpand App 3/5
Si Apple ya dió el paso a que su App Nativa “Archivos” reconozca las unidades USB, deberíamos tener la opción de trabajar con nuestra iXpand en la App Archivos iOS 13. Ahora le toca a SanDisk hacer por sus usuarios el trabajo mas cómodo.Estamos obligados a usar la App iXpand sin necesidad.
This app works maybe 1 in 30 tries. 1/5
By Nina Mullins
It’s a complete nightmare. If you haven’t opened the flash drive package yet, return it. I updated my phone and it’s not working at all. It’s horrible and extremely frustrating. I needed this to work so I could work from home, but looks like I’m going to have to find another solution. I gave 1 star, because zero wasn’t a option. You keep reinserting the devices, it loads everything then tells you you need to plug in the device. IT’S ALREADY PLUGGED IN!!!!! 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬
Greatest Accessories 5/5
One of the Greatest Accessories I’ve ever
By B. Francke
It’s so easy to use and the app is user friendly!! It hold so many pictures and I’ve had no issues at all!!
Like the app 4/5
There are three apps I have used for back up of photos & content. Different makers & it was not the most intuitive of the bunch, but does get the job done. It completed the tasks in several hours, overnight (5,027 photos). Sandisk app likes to be running as the only app, & not in the background.
It is an app that I will keep using.
Great app 5/5
Great app thanks
It’s great. Maybe can comes with a protector case
Incompatible with some hardware? 3/5
Got my iPhone XR and iPad Pro 2018. Works like a charm on the iPad, but on iPhone freezes up making work on it... frustrating at least. Got it to backup my photos, can’t do it through phone, just impossible task. On tablet, worked like a charm. I saw some reviews not too polite when buying it and I thought SanDisk is a bit more reputable brand over PNY... was I wrong?
Back up to X Band 5/5
Easy to you works great
App Crash’s constantly 2/5
I bought the device with expectation on freeing up memory on my iPad.. I paid the extra for the name. When i plug into iPad and open app it freezes and then closes. As i have been trying to get this app working for about a day..
Horrible product 1/5
By Prezldent Scrump
I purchased a iXpand Mini not realizing that the software is powered by Google and to reset the software I would have to use a windows pc. I purposely switched to Apple to get away from both above mentioned companies.
As well half of the features don’t work and Sandisk is stealing my personal information, Google + Microsoft + Sandisk =💩
By mike v 1230
A waste of time and money. Won’t read or recognize. The best thing you can do is return the usb to wherever you bought it from. Spend money on adapters. This app is trash as well as the usb. So much potential lost.
Very disappointed 1/5
By Luke Schwartzenburg
When I plug the device into my iPhone 11 it doesn’t work. The option to allow the device to access your photos pops up probably 1/10 times when I plug the device in and when it does pop up I press “allow”. After I press allow I go to the app and open it and it tells me that it’s “ready for you to plug in ixpand drive” like I don’t already have it plugged in. I’ve tried all the troubleshooting options multiple times and it still does the same thing. I wish it worked it would make transferring photos so much easier.
What is it doing? Stuck Arranging Content 1/5
First off, it sort of worked or worked well enough on my IPhone 6 IOS 12.4. I used it to download 3000 photos. I hate plugging my Apple devices into my Windows desktop. There is no end to frustration using Windows to get photos and others documents from an apple device. I thought this may be the solution. Two problems off the bat. First the privacy statement pretty much allows Scandisk/Western Digital to take all your personal information including the contents of your device for their own use. So in theory as you are copying files or making backups they are also getting copies of your files as well. I doubt they are but they can. Second, the application stuck on a screen for an hour saying “we are arranging your files so you don’t have to”. What does that even mean? Once it came back to life it let me select all the photos and copy to th IExpand drive easily enough. Again slow. An hour + for 3000 photos. My windows machine read the drive like a champ. No special driver or app needed.
Now I tried it on my IPad mini. After several hours it is still stuck trying to arrange my files for me. Maybe it should let me arrange the files for it.
So until Scandisk’s privacy statement explicitly states files and memory/drive contents are off limits and not collected by Western Digital and if the application ever finishes arranging files for me so I don’t have too, 2 stars is all this app and drive gets.
Update: downgraded to one star. Doesn’t work on the iPad mini. Takes an hour just to respond to a copy from iPad request and then crashes out of the application only after coping 150 photos.
Update May 2020
Upgraded and tried again. Nope. Still junk. Hours of spinning in place and no response. Never gets to allowing me to copy pictures off the iPad.
Serious invasion of privacy 1/5
Do not use this software! Warning your private info will be collected downloaded to sandisk.
One thing I didn’t I I’d like changed... 4/5
By Big Mayito
When this app is updated, I hope they add the option to pick what pictures and videos I want to back-up. I just wanted to back up certain videos on my phone, but the app doesn’t allow me to pick and choose what I do and don’t want to back up. It just automatically backs everything up onto the flash drive.
App is not reliable 1/5
This was once upon a time one of the best apps and devices. Recently the application has become so unreliable and one has to struggle a lot for the drive to be detected by the app. Also while transferring pictures many times the pictures taken from iPhone change format and become unreadable, which kind of defeats the purpose of backing up your pictures and saving them on the pc
App Keeps Crashing 1/5
My iPhone X iOS is currently at 13.4.1, and iXpad app is up to date as of 05/05/20.
Purchased this 256gb hard drive in hopes to have my photos backed up. Unfortunately, I have had no luck doing so. The app keeps crashing 10 seconds after I open it. I have updated my phone, the app, reinstalled the app, closed all of my running apps and restarted my phone. The app still keeps crashing with or without the hard drive plugged it. The idea of this app is great, but it’s not working for me, hopefully this can be resolved and I won’t have to return this hard drive back to the store. Until this is resolved it’s a 1 Star for me.
Best Way to Clear up Storage on Phone 5/5
Before I got my iXpand drive I had to update my storage and pay monthly in order to keep all my photos and storage free. Since I got my drive I’ve downloaded all of my photos and videos and cleared up 62gb on my phone. I was able to stop paying the monthly fee.
You can also really Organize everything into folders and name your videos so that you know what your looking for. Has helped clean out my storage and help keep my photos organized. Would highly recommend! I did start with the 32gb and quickly filled it up with only half of my camera roll so I would go with a bigger version of you have a lot to export!
Connection issues 1/5
The device worked fine the first day. Now I’m Having issues with it connecting to my phone. Every time I plug it in it does not connect. I have to restart my phone just to get it to connect and work properly. Is there a fix for this my device is an iPhone 11 pro
It Just Works! 5/5
By alignment guru
Finally! An app - and device - that actually works. I bought several lightening connector memory devices for my iPhone 7 plus to back up my photos. I let it grow too page and needed to offload. All disappointed me. They would get halfway done and stop. Not this app and device; it simply did as promised. Quickly and efficiently. Love it!
Great storage 5/5
Taking hundreds of photos in Israel made it easy to save photos and keep phone clear!
This moment is good. I Enjoy because I can keep my memories out the cell, thanks you this aplication...
By piss woe
The latest update is buggy please fix it
Very Useful 5/5
I normally don’t write review but this deserves one, I cannot manage my life without I have all my data stored safely and backed up where I can never fear of losing any important things. I 100% recommend it to all individuals who suffer mostly from low storage on their mobiles. It’s a life saver!
My negative review keeps getting deleted. Not for transferring docs, photos, music from PC to iPad. Dumps everything into Files where it’s stuck. Waste of money. Only positive is it has a dual port.
Buggy and glitchy 1/5
By westward window
Worked fine for a while and now doesn’t recognize my phone or in a PC up date the firmware. Lost all the phots and data.
La verdad 5/5
By El Nifur
Es rápido, fácil y necesario para tener mi iPhone limpio
Nearly heart attack 😤 1/5
Anytime I want to use OPEN IN in other apps, when I want to use IXPAND DRIVE , it will ERROR and says DRIVE IS BUSSY, TRY AGAIN LATER or something like this, and I should restart my iPad for each videos I want to move to this flash. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE MAKE IT OK 😡
iPhone 8 user APP CRASHES 3/5
I bought ixpand drive to transfer files from PC to phone easily. It works great with my iPad pro but constantly crashes with my 8 plus. I've tried everything on the support page and it seems like it's an app issue and not the device itself. PLEASE FIX THIS!! Thanks in advance
Not working AGAIN 1/5
I’ve bought this product twice now and they always have a problem! This is so infuriating, especially when dealing with important pictures and videos of my kid! It crashes, won’t copy all my files and glitches. This has happened with both that I recently bought.
Breaks itself 1/5
It was working quite well all was alright it took forever to load but it seemed alright. It would let me move my videos and photos now it doesn’t, it only lets me move photos and randomly shuts down or stops working. It’s absolutely infuriating it breaks its self, I’ve tried restarting my phone and everything but it doesn’t cooperate. My videos aren’t being saved out of the blue. Its unreliable and stressful do not recommend spending $40 on this thing.
Saving memories 5/5
This is a great way to view my memories on my photo viewer.
Nice App. Keyboard hidden issue still exists. 4/5
The app is nice and has good features.
There is one issue when using the app on iPad in landscape mode. When files are shared to the drive through the app and you select “Create New Folder” the keyboard is hidden. You have to rotate the iPad to portrait mode to have the keyboard appear on the screen. If this can be fixed, it would be great.
Great costumer service 5/5
Mine wouldn’t work in my iPhone X after a couple of years, they replaced my drive for free!
