Its been some months since I started my testing of BitCasa, during all this time I´ve been exchanging emails with the BitCasa team providing them feedback about problems, errors of their overall functionality and Windows/iOS apps. They have been sending me early versions of their Windows client to test, and gosh I spent hours doing it (and still do). No, I didn’t got paid, but I believe so much in the concept that I want to see the product stable and working nice.
While BitCasa has been polishing several aspects of the software and service, they are still not implementing the Dropbox/Copy main sync functionality. Yes they have a “mirror” function but its very limited and works strangely. Although several users are asking a lot of specs through feedback.bitcasa.com I guess eventually they will add it together with a lot of great things the service could offer.
Update Feb. 6th 2016: Copy has announced that will discontinue their service on May 1st 2016. You can read the post here.
Continuing with my “crusade” to find the perfect online storage platform, its now the turn of Copy.com, a freshly launched service by Barracuda Networks a well known network and anti-spam security player in the market.
The first thing that catches your attention to try Copy.com is their incredible referral system. Because they are new on this segment, they want to be sure everybody tries Copy.com, and to do so they had the brilliant idea of giving away a 15 GB free account, and if you register through a referral link (like mine here) you can get 20 GB of free space. But the good part doesn’t stops here, for each person you recommend and registers to their platform through your own referral link, validates their email address and installs the client software, Copy.com will credit you 5 GB of additional space. For the moment, they are not limiting how much
space you can get for free, so take advantage now if you need online storage, I already have
250 GB 535 GB:) (Update: I already passed 3 4 TB of free storage!!!) (more…)
