Secure File Sharing and Large File Cloud Storage with Copy

Secure File Sharing and Large File Cloud Storage with Copy | Online Collaboration Tools |
Robin Good's insight:

Copy is a cloud-based service which allows anyone to easily upload, store and share any kind of file, while keeping in sync your different devices. Copy comes also with desktop versions for Mac, Windows and Linux as well as iOS and Android mobile versions.

"Once uploaded, Copy generates a unique URL for the file that you can copy and send to the intended recipients over email, social media networks or IM. On the receiving end, the user just needs to open that URL in their web browser and click the Download button to download the file to their PC, smartphone or tablet.

While you can use Copy’s file sharing features without creating any account, registering for one rewards you with a few additional privileges like 5GB of cloud storage and file synchronization straight from desktop or mobile, depending on which platform you use it. An account can be created both from the web interface and from within the service’s desktop or mobile apps."

Copy provides you ith 5GB of inital free storage space, which gets bumped up to 10GB as soon as you install a desktop or mobile version.

"You can share files without even creating any user account that most other similar services often require."

"Copy also keeps past versions of your files so that if you accidentally lose or change something, you can get it back. The Android app of the service comes with PhotoCopy – a feature that automatically uploads your photos to the cloud similar to Dropbox, SugarSync and Google+’s offering."


For up to 5GB and more free to use.

Robin Good shares a new Cloud Service with us in this scoop. Have a read of his comments below. They are very helpful. Thanks Robin, once again.


One question I do have is what is the sustainability or business models of these services. It's hard enough to keep up with local storage equipment and standards, or connectors  (e.g., Firewire, USB 2.0, USB 3.0, USB TNG, Apple Lightning, SATA, etc., etc.,) How will we keep up with the technology? How will we know where we put that important file? This why curation, maintenance, and digital archive management are becoming much more important.

very interesting, thanks Robin :)

I find this MOST interesting.  Thanks Robin.  Cloud storage has become more interesting to me because I work on a laptop with a HD that is pretty well maxed-out for now.  I've used Dropbox for years and am up to about 11 G right now because I've had some referrals.  But I think it's always good to have some more storage.

Forget Google Drive: Bitcasa Gives You Unlimited Online Storage

Robin Good: Forget Google Drive coming next week. I have just been testing for a few days Bitcasa, which promises unlimited storage for $10/month (free while in Beta) and I must say I have been quite impressed.

Once installed on your Mac or PC, Bitcasa makes itself available to "cloudify" any folder/directory you want with a simple click and then it works in the background to upload and copy all of your files to the your infinite storage drive.

You can sync-up different computers and portable devices and get access to all of your precious files from anyone.

To show how eager Bitcasa really is to receive tons of your files and to backup hundreds of gigabytes of stuff, Bitcasa has installed on my Mac a little utility (with my approval) that automatically offers me, everytime I plug in an external hard disk, to cloudify its contents. 

I have already cloudified over 20GB without a hitch and now I can see them from all my computers. 

If you need to work or collaborate with othe people, are on the move, and can't carry around a suitcase of hard drives, Bitcasa may provide an ideal solution at a very accessible cost.

Very promising. 9/10

I fail to understand something:
Bitcasa offers a solution that claims to be more convenient than the GDrive\Skydrive\Dropbox solution and offers unlimited storage for $10 a month. However, in an interview they admit that most users are not using that much storage.... So why would I chose to pay $120 yearly when I can pay google for example $60 for 100GB????

Moreover, the way Bitcasa is designed, the switching cost between services is not high so in case I need to upgrade my plan with Google to something that costs $120 I can easily switch to Bitcasa or to whomever gives the best plan and convenience.

I just can't see the huge added value of this service.

I am willing to admit that engineering-wise it looks good.

As I see it by going to the Bitcasa website, the service is still "free" for anyone signing up now, plus I consider "infinite" storage decidedly better for anyone who has several hundred gigabytes of stuff that doesn't want to lose easily. The real issue is: how much time does it take to upload all that stuff anyhow?
