Copy.com cloud hosting service to end

Post by daveinuk » Mon Feb 01, 2016 3:03 pm

Just turned my laptop on and got this unfortunate system notification :(

https://techlib.barracuda.com/display/C ... nd-of-Life

I've used 'Copy' for a couple of years now instead of dropbox and found it to be reliable and efficient, so I'll be a little sad to see it go, however . . . . . . . .
by sheer coincidence . . . . . Peter Elhert of then LMDE facebook group just posted today. . . . . a link to Mega, which appears to be a company from New Zealand
that is offering a whopping 50gb of free cloud storage ! And they have a Linux client too, so it looks as though I'll be moving on over there soon, so some 'clouds' do indeed have a silver lining, pardon the pun . . . . . . . . .

Edit: Statement off the blog............
Copy and CudaDrive Services will be Discontinued



We are announcing today that the Copy and CudaDrive services will be discontinued on May 1, 2016.

Copy and CudaDrive have provided easy-to-use cloud file services and sharing functionality to millions of users the past 4+ years. However, as our business focus has shifted, we had to make the difficult decision to discontinue the Copy and CudaDrive services and allocate those resources elsewhere. For more information on this decision, please view the blog post from Rod Mathews, our GM of Storage.

We know this comes as disappointing news to our users, but rest assured that we will do everything we can to take care of each of you in the manner for which Barracuda is known. We have created a step by step guide that walks you through the process of moving your data to a local hard drive or another cloud storage solution.

If you are on a paid subscription for either Copy or CudaDrive, please keep an eye out in the coming days for an email with more detailed information on your options. For additional information, please visit our FAQ page.

Thank you to everyone for your support.

All the best,

The Copy & CudaDrive Team

Why not try OwnCloud? Then you don't have to depend on some sketchy company to safeguard your data...
