Monument does not have any built-in storage. Instead, it connects to your own external USB hard drive (any size works). You can connect a hard drive based on your storage needs and you can upgrade the drive to a larger size at any time. We recommend using a larger sized drive if you plan on backing up a lot of photos and videos.
External USB hard drives will work with Monument as long as they are formatted with one of the following file systems:
- NTFS (Windows)
- FAT32 (Windows)
- HFS (Mac)
- exFAT (Windows/Mac)
Below are some suggested hard drives:
- Western Digital Elements (1-4TB)
- LaCie Rugged Drive (1TB - 5TB)
- Samsung T5 Portable SSD (500GB - 2TB)
Tip: Format to exFAT so that the drive can work on both Windows and Mac.
Note: NAS devices currently are not compatible with Monument.
