Yaad yet another Dropbox: copy.com
« on: June 04, 2013, 02:42:50 pm »
I'm always on the lookout for more and more cloud storage services, well because they're free and fun to have insane amounts of space if I ever need it. Anyway copy.com just launched recently and they're offering 15gb free with 5gb for referrals- for both referrer and referree- making total 20gb if you use this link or if you only want 15gb you can go through copy.com and not give me anything, your call.

The iOS app looks great and well designed although it looks like it doesn't yet support instant uploads of photos/videos. The desktop client, while I haven't yet installed it, looks similar to Google Drive and Dropbox has and the same functionality of having a Copy Folder that syncs its content automatically. Have yet to see if it supports previous version function though.

Interesting, but I kinda worry about the upsurge in competing Dropbox services and cloud storage, because remember what happened to Savefile.com and Megaupload.com, for example. Different reasons why they shutted down, but many people still lost their files...

I would rather trust one that has been around for a long while and seems stable, while also keeping offline backups of my stuff.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

How's the desktop application? I assume you can have all of your documents backed up such that they're uploaded automatically as soon as they're created/modified? And do you know if the service keeps and allows you to restore previous versions of files? I hate the really small size Dropbox provides, but the ability to automatically back up my entire documents folder continuously and manage previous versions is really what makes it my favorite. I don't know of any other free cloud storage service that provides it.
