It’s time to download everything from your Amazon Drive. In an email sent to customers on July 29th, Amazon explains that Drive uploads will end on January 1st of 2023. Any files left in your Drive will disappear on December 31st of 2023.

This change does not affect Amazon Photos uploads. That said, you should see a photos folder in your Amazon Drive. Don’t delete this folder if you want to continue using Amazon Photos.

Dear Amazon Drive Customer,

Over the last 11 years, Amazon Drive has served as a secure cloud storage service for Amazon customers to back up their files. On December 31, 2023, we will no longer support Amazon Drive to more fully focus our efforts on photos and video storage with Amazon Photos. We will continue to provide customers the ability to safely back up, share, and organize photos and videos with Amazon Photos.

Thankfully, you should have no trouble downloading your Drive contents. Simply visit Amazon Drive, select any folders you want to keep, and press “download.” You can also download your Drive contents using the Amazon Photos software.

Even if you don’t remember using Drive, I suggest checking to see if you have any old files stored in the platform. Amazon Drive initially offered 5GB of free storage when it launched in 2011, so there’s a decent chance that you used it at least once.

According to Amazon, you have until December 31st of 2023 to download files from Drive. I suggest finding an alternative, such as Dropbox, Google Drive, or an external HDD to keep these files safe for the future. Be sure to make backups of your backups—an essential step for data redundancy.
