Both Bitcasa Drive and Copy.com are shutting down in May. These aren’t the first cloud storage services to shut down and leave their users hanging, and they likely won’t be the last. If you’re wondering where you should put your data after they’ve closed, you’ll be happy to know that there are many suitable alternatives to these services.
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.
pCloud is a cloud storage service that can backup and synchronize files on Windows, Mac, and Linux. It gives users 10 GB of free storage space, although this can be increased to 20 GB by referring friends. It can also backup other cloud accounts such as Facebook and Dropbox.
