There is a new cloud storage company like DropBox offering a free 15GB account.

If you sign up with this referal link from my account we both get an extra 5GB of storage.

https://copy.com?r=83s0Rr

Then get your own link and invite your friends and family. Not sure how long the extra 5GB offer will last.

Update1: This cloud storage allows unlimited file sizes so 1080p video storage is not a problem [just your upload speed ;)]

Update 2: Need more space and have more than one machine? Just create a new account on each machine [gaining and extra 5+5GB per machine] and then "Share" folders between all machines. Also works for DropBox etc

I always wonder, how they are able to offer something for free, there must be a catch.

The something for nothing is obviously to entice you in. Then you pay on other services. As far as Copy.com goes I have not used it enough to know it's limitations. The following link from the backbone company implies that the free accounts will normally be 5GB but there is NO upload file size limit. https://www.barracud...ress_release/56

I was just annoyed by Microsfot when they took away my 25GB storage without telling me.

On a plus note: Google is going to join all it's various storage space [gmail, drive, picassa etc] into one account limit.



Edit:
There are no adverts on their browser page so far...

Yeah I know, but they aren't displaying any adds on their page. And since you can use it like dropbox, you won't need the website too often.

Just a quick update...

Seeing occasional blips in web service to probable high demand, but mostly stable despite this.

This cloud storage allows unlimited file sizes so 1080p video storage is not a problem [just your upload speed ;)].

Need more space and have more than one machine? Just create a new account on each machine [gaining and extra 5+5GB per machine] and then "Share" folders between all machines. Also works for DropBox etc

Update: Living with Copy.com

As I have quite a bit of space now [thanks to anyone who joined] Copy is now my main cloud storage company. It's services have been the equal or better than Dropbox for my needs. Uploads are at my ISP's max. I am using Dropbox and Box inside Copy.com's folder as a duplicate backup

Besides the greater initial storage of 20GB, when you SHARE folders with other people, you share storage space allocated to those files. I hadn't realised that Dropbox and others allocate the full shared files size to each person in the share. Now I know where my storage went.....

So a 1GB share would use 1GB of each person allocation. They would each use up a full 1GB of their own storage limit. With Copy that 1GB is divided by the number of people sharing, and thats all you loose in allocation. Four people equals 250MB used.
