Cloud Storage - 1T Free

Postby Nick » Tue Jan 07, 2014 3:21 pm

I've become a fan of cloud storage, and Dropbox in particular, but here is an offer to make you sit up & pay attention ...........

Yunio is a cross-platform cloud storage and sync service offering 1TB of free space. On sign-up you get 5G & space increases by 1GB for each day you sign in up to 1T limit.It's similar to the likes of Dropbox / SkyDrive / Google Drive but with much more free space, much bigger file upload limits and clients for all major platforms (Windows, Android, Apple and Linux).

Theres a more comprehensive review of Yunio

as I've said before use of dropbox for Business purposes is more than likely a breach of the DPA with all that entails.

Keith,

I had a little read around, and you certainly have been right at various times in the past, because Dropbox's servers were outside the EC and not certified. I believe that they have moved to Amazon servers which are certified.

All this also applies to Evernote too BTW.

This article suggests Dropbox isn't DPA compliant

This article suggests that it is.

Yunio clearly isn't as it's in China!

Keith,

Rather a well timed comment:

Dropbox sent us this updated response, confirming the hoax:

“Dropbox site is back up.

In regards to claims of “leaked user information” – this is a hoax. This is not Dropbox data. The list was published 12/9/13 at: http://pastebin.com/64PAAV1c

Today’s outage was caused during internal maintenance, and was not caused by external factors. We apologize for any inconvenience.”

I'm getting upload of 20K/s - so it's going to take 3 months to use the free space!

Yunio enticed everyone with 1 TB free cloud storage (which I signed up for and told others about), but now a few months after they offer the 1 TB free and get the masses to sign up they decide to "change their business model". Starting April 1st if you are a free user of their cloud service if you do not upgrade to their VIP (paid) service your account and everything uploaded to it will become invalid, meaning you will not be able to log in to retrieve or upload any files anymore.

Classic bait and switch - very, Very poor business. Bargepole touch don't with.
