What's next for Spacedrive?

Here is a list of the features we are working on, and the progress we have made so far.

Q1 2022

Big Bang

File discovery

Scan devices, drives and cloud accounts to build a directory of all files with metadata.

Preview generation

Auto generate lower resolution stand-ins for image and video.


Total capacity, index size, preview media size, free space etc.


Tasks to be performed via a queue system with multi-threaded workers, such as indexing, identifying, generating preview media and moving files. With a Job Manager interface for tracking progress, pausing and restarting jobs.


Browse online/offline storage locations, view files with metadata, perform basic CRUD.

Self hosting

Spacedrive can be deployed as a service, behaving as just another device powering your personal cloud.


Define routines on custom tags to automate workflows, easily tag files individually, in bulk and automatically via rules.


Deep search into your filesystem with a keybind, including offline locations.

Media View

Turn any directory into a camera roll including media from subdirectories

View a linear timeline of content, travel to any time and see media represented visually.


Ensure a specific amount of copies exist for your important data, discover at-risk files and monitor device/drive health.


Utilize the compute power of your devices in unison to encode and perform tasks at increased speeds.

That's not all.
