Hi everyone. Not sure I'm posting this in the correct place, but I'm going to use it on my main Mint 13 machine.

 

I hated to see Ubuntu One end because it worked perfectly for me - I have a lot of pics I don't want to lose should my computer crash. I don't want to use Dropbox, so one I'm looking into now is SpiderOak. They say it is similar to Ubunu One, and I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience with it. I'm also open to any other suggestions. No hurry, I have a ton of folder organization/cleanup to do before I commit to one.

 

Thank you,

 

Keith

Mate I was using Copy, found, surprisingly enough here.

 

Seeing your request has reminded me to reactivate it, as I had it previously on my Ubuntu Trusty Tahr, and on Windows 7, prior to that.

 

If you use my referral system here, and follow Copy's instructions you can score another 5GB at a time on top of their generous free 15GB. But's that up you, I am quite happy with 15GB so far.

 

I find them to be very user friendly, and the download to your PC approach allows for drag-and-drop instant application to the Cloud, and also syncing between PCs on your Network.

 

A review of them can be found here, and it also includes referral from the author.And that article also lists on the right 5 other services, including your SpiderOak option.

 

This site, How This Works, also has info.

 

Last, but not least, 1 more Tech Blog lists 10 top options, just to confuse you, lol.

 

Good luck in your Mission!

 

Wizard

Thank you wizard. The main thing I do on my computer is record vids of Eagle nests and post them on various sites. I grab tons of pics from the vids for reference, so I surely don't want to lose them.

 

Actually, one nest I follow is at Olympic Park in Sydney - the White Bellied Sea Eagles.

 

Looks like SpiderOak gives only 2 GB free - then major $$$ for more. I'm eliminating that one.

 

I still have a lot of folder organization to do before I start uploading to a cloud app - so I'll keep you updated.

You are most welcome, and tks for using the referral.

 

I read somewhere on the Net sometime around answering your question of a bloke who has, say a blog page, or some other visible presence - he has something like 280 GB free storage with them now from referrals.

 

Crikey! You could put a good-sized HDD up there! :hysterical:

 

Later
