SurDoc announced today that they will be shutting down their service on May 31, 2016. This follows a string of recent closures in the cloud storage industry, starting with Copy.com and Bitcasa Drive earlier this year.
Free cloud storage is all the rage. If you want to upload a school or work document, or share a simple family photo album, there’s no need to spend money on an expensive paid service. Most people don’t need terabytes of storage to sync and share files. Many cloud services can fit your needs, with a cost of zero.
Backing up your data is important for any iPhone user. This can be done using iTunes and iCloud. iTunes handles the local backups, and iCloud handles the cloud backups. However, not everyone wants to use iCloud, due to concerns about the privacy of data stored on Apple’s servers. It can also be easier to use the same service to back up iOS devices that you use to back up desktop computers, and iCloud doesn’t support Linux or Android.
SurDoc is shutting down on May 31, 2016. The company has advised users to download their files immediately to avoid any potential data loss.
